    Today UberSocial has been updated to version 1.251. Version 1.251 includes the following changes:

    • Direct support for the latest OS 7 BlackBerry devices
    • For BlackBerry OS 6.0 and 7.0 devices we now support the home screen message notification bar so DMs, @replies/mentions and inner circle tweets will show up there for quick access from the device home screen.

Clicking the tweet snippet will take you directly to it.
    • Fixed bug where tweets would not open on some touch screen devices when you touched them
    • Fixed bug where trending topics descriptions would sometimes overlap in the list.
    • Fixed issue caused by twitter wrapping all URLs with t.co shortened links, this affected twitlonger, tmi.me, myloc.me and mypict.me links

    • Fixed bug where mini-icon would sometimes have a zero next to it
    • Improved load times for the inner circle timeline

    • Added a 'Theme' menu itme so you can easily change themes from the home timeline without going into options
    • Changed the menu text of 'My Timeline' to 'My Tweets' to more accurately reflect the functionality
    • Support for new device screen sizes for installable themes
    • Fixed a theme bug where backgrounds were not being used on all screens, causing tiling of the portrait background
    • Greatly improved timeline scrolling performance on touch screen devices

    BlackBerry Bridge received another incremental update to v1.0.6.5 today. No changelog yet, but typically a Bridge update means a PlayBook OS update is coming soon.

    We do know that PlayBook OS v2.0 isn't coming out till October, so this will probably be a minor Playbook OS update, if any.

    The BlackBerry PlayBook seems to be conquering every area within enterprise computing. Today RIM has introduced the availability of the Citrix receiver for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    The Citrix reliever allows users to access applications and desktops hosted by their company's Citrix server. Now applications like Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Word will be able to run directly from the PlayBook. If available, users can also access their Citrix desktop with a couple of simple touches. You could look at the Citrix receiver as an extension of your desktop at work.




    Some Key features include:

    • Multitasking – similar to the PlayBook’s multi-tab browsing experience, the Citrix Receiver allows for multitasking between virtualized apps and desktops, and between multiple desktops themselves – all on the tablet’s seven-inch screen
    • Single “Sign On” Access – one single sign on access point provides full access to virtual apps and desktops
    • IT Controlled Built-in Enterprise App Hosting – IT managers can give self-service access to enterprise apps, much like you select apps from BlackBerry App World
    • Security – the unique FIPS-certified BlackBerry PlayBook tablet security protocols protect your data when using the Citrix Receiver
    • Peripheral Integration in High Definition – by pairing a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, you’ll gain full access to your remote desktop and apps on the PlayBook’s brilliant HD screen


    This is a really big step in a positive direction for RIM's PlayBook as it now opens the doors to communicate with one of the most effective application hosting systems in the market today.

    With the launch of several BlackBerry OS 7 devices recently, it seems many developers were left with apps that weren't compatible with this newest software.

    For many apps,, including GetGlue, this was actually a simple solution of adding OS 7 devices to their compatibility list.

    Today, AdaptiveBlue Inc. updated the device compatibility for GetGlue. If you have a OS 7 devices, you can download it now.

    GetGlue is a social network for movies, tv shows, music, and books. Check-in and rate things to discover new favorites, see what your friends are into, get stickers, and win free stuff.

    It seems that BBM Music is slowly being prepared for mass market launch, as it has been spotted in App World today. The app is still Beta Zone-only & requires a keycode, but it's quite simple to download now.

    With a Period End Date of late September, maybe we are merely weeks away from launch?
