• The Rainbow Fades Away As Twimbow Calls It Quits

    So it looks as though the web based Twitter client, Twimbow, will not be coming to BlackBerry 10 after all. We reported back in June of this year that Twimbow was already in development of bringing their product to BB 10. However, the new Twitter rules that will come along in the new API update v1.1 is what will make the Twimbow team stop their work.

    They go on to say, "In the last communiques, Twitter discouraged the development of new applications replicating the core Twitter Experience, called “Traditional Clients”, among which Twimbow is included.

    They outlined some rules ( read here https://dev.twitter.com/blog/current-status-api-v1.1) which disheartened us and now we have no longer enthusiasm to continue our adventure."

    It's definitely sad to see Twimbow go. We were all looking forward to their BlackBerry 10 app. If you haven't tried the Twitter client yet, you still have a bit of time as they will be up and running for about another 6 months, until the new API takes affect.
