Blaq Twitter App For BlackBerry PlayBook Updates To v1.8.6


Blaq has probably been one of the most popular apps on the PlayBook since it’s launch, and if you haven’t tried I recommend that you do! It is by far the best Twitter experience you will ever have! Recently Blaq has updated to version 1.8.6 which brings a bunch of fixes and a few new updates, such as:

  • Rendering issues – duplicate tweets, incorrect tweet info
  • Embedded content not loading – Youtube, Twitlonger, Soundcloud, etc.
  • Twitter thumbnail loading
  • Cannot follow/unfollow user if real-time streaming is disabled or fails
  • Virtual keyboard does not send tweet in portrait
  • The url shortener (the default shortener) has been removed. If you were using it, you will now be defaulted to Twitter’s URL shortener
  • More compact tweet rows
  • Ability to disable auto correct (advanced options > general)
  • Minor cosmetic and speed improvements
For those who haven’t downloaded Blaq for your BlackBerry PlayBook I urge you to head down to the link below and download this application right away. Like I stated earlier this is by far the best Twitter experience you will have on a mobile device. You can grab this application for a very affordable $2.99.
