BlackBird for BlackBerry PlayBook updated to v1.2 – URL Shortening, New RTing Options, & More

8 August 2011 No Comment

BlackBird is a Twitter client for the BlackBerry PlayBook which brings mainly simple tweeting at ease.  Over the weekend I noticed an update to version 1.2 adding a few new features.  Change log lists:

  • New options for retweeting
  • Url shortening
  • Quick access user profile

Currently BlackBird and Blaq remain to be the only good Twitter clients for the BlackBerry PlayBook.  Personally I prefer Blaq, but if you’re not a fan of dark colors or the advanced UI, BlackBird might be the basic fix you want.  It’s available at BlackBerry App World if you want to check it out.
