posted by Justin Lisenby at on Apr 5, 2012 | Comments

Kisai Labs has updated their popular Twitter client for BlackBerry PlayBook, Blaq. The update, v1.7.1, is a maintenance release designed to fix lots of issues and make your Tweeting experience even better. The changes include:

  • 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

It’s obvious with a change log this large that the Blaq team has been hard at work making their Twitter client the best one available for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and they won’t stop here. They are constantly working on new features and fixes and if you haven’t checked Blaq out yet, you definitely should. You can grab it for just $1.99 from the link below.
