Default ÜberTwitter Beta-9, Release #1

Please Login to Remove!

Version 0.99 released: Beta-9 has been released! | ÜberTwitter.

Features (from UT website):

* Bug Fix - Fixed a bug where the menu key would become unresponsive and occasionally the device would lock up. This same bug likely was causing excessive battery usage over time.
* New Themes - You asked and we delivered two new themes! The Midnight theme which we think many of you will find extremely appealing, and the Über Classic theme which brings back many of the color choices of version 0.971 including the same solid colors for @replies and DMs
* Filtered ÜberChannels - You loved ÜberChannels, but now we think you'll love it even more! When you pull up the timeline for an ÜberChannel the tweets are now filtered so that you will only see on-topic tweets. Not seeing all of the extraneous tweets, especially on a mobile device, should make the ÜberChannel experience much better!
* Brighter Themes - Listening to your feedback we have reworked the colors in all of the existing themes to make the brighter and more vibrant.
* Notification Flowers - Everyone liked the uniqueness of the notification 'flowers' on the main icon when you had a new tweet/@reply or DM, we made them even better by including a red and white star in the middle to make them stand out.
* TweetPhoto is now Plixi - We have converted it all over to use the new Plixi logo and wording.
* Photo Upload Bug - Fixed a bug in photo uploads which could occur if you had multiple accounts configured on your device.
* Highlight Bars - The highlight bar is now more appropriate for each theme, and we also made the highlight bar flow behind the tweets in the 'bubble' layout, like it did in previous versions.
* Icon Notifications - Fixed bug where icon notifications were not cleared when ÜberTwitter stopped running.
* Sound Notifications - Fixed bug where an @reply sound notification would not sound if there was also a regular tweet notification.
* Hashtag Picker - You can now turn off the hashtag picker under 'options' from the menu.
* Late @replies - Fixed bug where if you received an @reply and saw the notification on the uber bar and then went to your @replies, you couldn't find any new ones there.
* Native 6.0 Build - There is now a native build for BlackBerry OS version 6.0
* Photo/Video Picker - We now use the native Photo/Video file picker on BlackBerry OS version 6.0.

I've been generally happy with UberTwitter's releases, feature-wise at least. One of the major issues that started appearing in Beta-8, Release 2, was that the colored bars (yellow for @replies/mentions, green for DMs) were faded instead of solid. It looked a bit odd, though I've slowly gotten used to it. I thought the issue might be fixed in this most recent version, but it doesn't seem to be. Well not completely. With the exception of the Classic Uber theme, all other themes still show the same faded colored bars.

They also changed the colors of the "Nature" theme. It used to be a kind of beige, but now it's full blown green. They might as well call it the "Green" theme. The biggest problem with this particular theme is that DMs still show up as green colored bars, which in a green theme basically means everything shows up as the same. Similar with the @replies/mentions, the faded yellow bars are overwhelmed by the green of the theme that it's hard to notice those from regular tweets in the timeline.

I am happy the bug fix with the cached tweets was fixed. My suggestion with the bar is to be selective with the theme. I suggested to them to consider adding one button shortcuts for the timelines which may alleviate the issue

The notification would be visible but no tweet or the same notification of a tweet would continue to show as read

Ah ok.

I contacted UberTwitter about the faded color bars for reples and DMs. They said they might tweak the themes to have solid bars in the future. Guy mentioned it was an easy thing to do. Guess we'll see.

I sent other feedback that I am experiencing.
* No Uberchannels
* I get a string, null error pop up occasionally
* I can access lists that I develop but not lists that I subscribe

Hmm UberChannels seem to be working fine on my end. Is it a problem with a specific channel?
