N900 tips & tricks: Another major Witter update adds UI elements and functions
I previously talked about the major improvements in Witter on the N900 and then earlier today the application wasn’t working for me. I then bounced my SIM around a bit at the hospital and late last night discovered a new version of Witter, from Daniel Would, included another major UI and functionality update. One of my suggestions for the next version was to add support for viewing more Tweets and now Daniel added a toggle to select from 20, 50, 100, or 200 Tweets. Perfect!
You will also find major new UI elements with icons for a ton of different functions, including search, friends timeline, trends, public timeline, user history of a specific person, and easy full screen toggle. There is also the ability to authorize Witter via OAuth so that you can have Tweets show up as being sent from Witter instead of just API. Daniel also added in support for custom colors in the timelines so you can play with them and find just what you like.
I have to say that with this latest update, now at version 0.2.2, I am perfectly fine with using my N900 for Twitter on a daily basis. I am also testing out a new Foursquare application in private beta and it is coming along very nicely so the N900 is shaping up to be a good social tool.
