It’s been a short while since the Blaq Twitter app for BlackBerry PlayBook was updated but the Kisai Labs team is back with a new version which includes a bunch of new features and fixes. Most notably, version 1.7 of Blaq for PlayBook has portrait mode, colored LED notifications and more. Here’s a full list of what’s new:
- Portrait Mode
- Auto-correct and spell check
- LED notifications:
New Tweets – White
Mentions – Blue
DMs – Green
- TweetMarker support – Never lose your spot again! TweetMarker bookmarks your position in any client supporting it (must be enabled in Advanced Options > Services)
- Toggle Real-time streaming – This has been a HUGE request. Granted. Tap the real-time indicator to toggle.
- Favorited tweets – Swipe from the top bezel then tap the star
- Dedicated help section to make it easier to learn the ins and outs
- Saved Searches – Easily tap the star in your search field to add a new saved search. Tap a saved search then untap the star to remove it. It’s that simple!
