It seems as if Research In Motion is really pumping out these updates frequently. Today, R.I.M. updated Twitter to version 188.8.131.52 in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, which has the following updates:
Redesigned Nav Bar
The Nav Bar has a whole new look with simplified icons that provide a cleaner layout and a more familiar Twitter experience. With a single click, you can quickly access your Home Timeline, @Mentions, Messages, Lists, perform a search from the new Single Search Screen, or submit a tweet with the new “Compose Tweet” button accessible from anywhere in the app.
New Compose Tweet Button
The new “Compose Tweet” button in Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones 2.0 is a single touch-point for creating new tweets from anywhere in the app, making it easier than ever to share your location (if setting is enabled) and photos with your followers.
Single Search Screen
With the new Single Search Screen in Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones 2.0, you can search for tweets, tweets nearby, people, as well as go-to @users all from a single location. From the new Single Search Screen, you can also view Trending Topics and Saved Searches – unifying the entire Twitter Search experience.
Another great feature for BlackBerry 6 users: Twitter Search works with Universal Search on your BlackBerry smartphone. Search for anything, and Universal Search will pull in relevant results from your entire BlackBerry smartphone, including all Search categories within Twitter.
A new application header notifies you when you receive other types of messages, like BBM messages or email, as well as displaying your network connectivity while in the Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app – meaning you no longer need to leave the application in order to discover the types of new external notifications you have.
New Black/Chrome Color Scheme
The color scheme throughout the app has been updated to be consistent with the look of the Twitter brand.
The one thing I noticed about this update is that instead of having to copy and paste the keycode (not just anyone can download these beta updates) into the application, it is automatically generated! That’s one of the key features that is truly impressive, asides from of course the updated Twitter app. Go check it out if you are a BlackBerry Beta Zone member!
