BlackBerryOS.com - Blaq For BlackBerry PlayBook Updated To v1.7.1
  • Blaq For BlackBerry PlayBook Updated To v1.7.1



    Everyone's favorite Twitter client on the PlayBook has been updated this morning. This is mainly a maintenance release but nevertheless, Jerome Carty has made some significant improvements to the app that make it worth upgrading right now. Check below for the change log.

    Here’s what’s new:

    • Timeline position is held if new tweets are loaded while scrolled (instead of jumping to top)
    • Reduced application size
    • Reduced memory footprint
    • Big performance improvements
    • Improved scrolling
    • New splash screen
    • E-mail Tweet
    • Font appearance preview


    And here are some significant bug fixes:

    • Real-time streaming fixes (caused by server changes to Twitter’s streaming on Monday)
    • Long urls in tweets sometimes overflow into the tweet below them
    • Mini browser does not rotate when moving from portrait to landscape and vice versa
    • Tweets over 140 characters are still sendable if the virtual keyboard’s return key is used
    • When tweeting a photo, a lack of space between the link and surrounding text make it unclickable
    • When replying to a retweet, replies should be directed to original tweeter
    • Duplicate tweets
