    Blaq seems to be quite popular

    I've heard very good things about Blaq, but I find the web app to be sufficient for my own usage.

    Blaq might be more feature rich, but the user experience imo, is awful. I do not understand all the hype around this app. And cannot understand why my review on appworld never appeared.

    Using blackbird, much cleaner and eficiente, but less feature rich than Blaq.

    IMHO, no real excellent twitter on pb.

    I have blaq, it's a much better looking app, but the website does work better. Same way the Facebook app is okay, but the website is just a little more functional.

    I just downloaded Blackbird. It looks good for the price. (1) The sideloaded Twitter application doesn't work that we'll and Blaq is asking for too much IMO.

    I think it depends a bit on how you mostly use twitter. I have blaq and blackbird, but as I read much more than tweet, I've found that I actually prefer lemma for it's simplicity and list handling.

    Hey guys,

    Keep in mind that Blaq is $1.99 through new years. Also, I understand not everyone will like the UI and I listen to whatever feedback we get (including the negative). Take it for what it's worth but don't knock it without giving it a try.

    I use Janetter for Android. All native twitter apps are not good enough for me.

    I have falcon pro sideloaded as well. Really top notch app. Except sometimes the refreshing is a bit slow.

    I used before Blaq, it is a good twitter client, but I don't like its UI and it's a bit lagged, so I sideloaded Ubersocial and the Android Twitter Client, although I delete Uber because it was so laggy and it didn't load well, butfor my satisfaction, the official Twitter loads in a hurry, doesn't lag and it has all the features of Twitter, my only complaint is that it doesn't have a fluid translation from one orientation to another, but this is more a sideload consequence that a problem of the app itself.

    But when RIM releases a native official twitter client because of BB10, I would use it instead of Blaq and the Android Twitter.

    The latest Ubersocial version is almost perfect. Now I will try Falcon PRO 1.4

    JC - quick question. Blaq user, not a big "twitterer" but am I missing how to quote a tweet / retweet? Find myself reaching for my 9900 to answer tweets that I want to do as a quote.
    It was recently pointed out to me that SugarSync was still in my signature, and no longer available for free. It was a nice (free) ride, SugarSync, but I'm seeing Box and Dropbox now, via BB10 integration.
