ÜberTwitter gets an update for BlackBerry users

If you use a BlackBerry then chances are you may use UberTwitter. The app has received an update today to bring you the below features and improvements.


  • Map Provider – Allow users to select either MapQuest (default) or BlackBerry maps to display users locations. User action to retrieve a map You now have to click the ‘Retrieve Map’ button after opening a tweet in order for the map to be retrieved. This will result in substantially lower bandwidth requirements and improved battery life.
  • UberChannel date display bug fix – Fixed a bug where tweets in UberChannel streams had the date incorrectly displayed.
  • Resetting tweets to retrieve bug – Fixed bug where on an upgrade the number of tweets to retrieve would reset to 60.
  • Highlight color in Midnight Theme bubble layout – The highlight color in the Midnight theme when using the bubble layout is now much easier to discern.
  • Text Ad color -  We changed the color of the text ads to conform to the them colors. The ads are still clearly marked as an advertisement.
  • GPS Radio Activation -  The GPS radio will now only be activated when you open the compose tweet screen IF you have selected to use the GPS radio to determine location. This should greatly reduce battery drain, but may result in the location mechanism falling back to the cell tower method on some occasions.


ÜberTwitter is a free Twitter app but there is a paid version if you don’t want the adverts on it. You can subscribe by clicking here.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Retail Unboxing Video


You more than likely saw our BlackBerry Torch unboxing video. It was however a review device and came in its own special box. We had a few people ask us what the retail box contained and up until now we couldn’t be sure.

So today when my own BlackBerry Torch arrived I thought I would video it to show you what you get and what you don’t.

Sadly a case is missing from the box which I was rather surprised about. You get one with the Bold and I would have thought that the Torch needs even more protection but RIM must want us to buy our own.

See the unboxing video after the break.
