Gravity update adds integrated browser and enhanced Facebook support

gravitykeyboardI have talked a number of times about Gravity here on Nokia Experts and can’t say enough about this fantastic application. The application is so good that it keeps me using Nokia devices more than other devices and honestly, without Gravity I likely would have stopped using many of my Nokia devices and moved on. I saw on Twitter that Jan Ole Suhr released a new version of Gravity with some cool new features that seem to be pushing Nokia to step up to the plate.

Gravity is not just a Twitter client, but has support for Facebook, Google Reader, and Foursquare all in a single application that is well worth the $10. I have purchased something like 4 or 5 licenses so far for my devices and am happy to support great developers.

You can download this new version here and for a fairly detailed walk-through of all the new features and updates I recommend you check out Nitish Kumar’s blog post.

Here are the main new features and improvements:

  • Embedded web browser
  • Split screen keyboard
  • Enhanced Facebook module with conversation view

gravitygooglereaderI was testing out the latest alpha version before and love that I can enter text and see the context of why I am entering text using the keyboard and hope Nokia provides this split screen capability with an update.

The embedded web browser is pretty slick and is good for checking a quick link in a Tweet rather than going out to the default browser.

The enhanced Facebook support is actually what interests me most with this latest update as I have been using Facebook more and more lately with more family and friends joining the social network.

What is your favorite newest feature or improvement?

First of all, I agree… Gravity makes it for me possible to use a Nokia smartphone nowadays. I would have had to move on without it.

Favourite new feature… Embedded browser. @janole has done it again: Before this alpha, I would hardly ever hit a link in fear of having to wait forever for the Nokia web browser to load the page – a very painful experience. I normally would send the link to Read it Later and read it later on the laptop. Not a bad solution, but certainly a work around.

With the dozen of links I have already hit today, I can safely say that the experience has greatly improved. One of the benefits is that it does not have to load Web, which means that it wins a few valuable seconds. Besides, it seems to load text very smartly and allows you to start reading, while images still load in the background (though not always).

I am sure there are plenty of bugs to iron out – one link did not work, for instance – but using twitter has gotten better again!
