    For people coming here from the Blackberry World: we can't update apps anymore through it. The only way to get the newest version is through the links on this post

    Update 2.4.0.0:

    • Added DM tab
    • Added support for 2FA / login security checks
    • Tweet page now suggests users while mentioning with @
    • Added tweet creation time
    • Discover page has a new "Recent" tab
    • Seach page loads user suggestions in real time
    • Background sync for notifications / DM can be toggled off from the app menu (useful if you're low on battery and want to leave the app open without it using the newtork). This setting is ignored for DMs while you have a conversation open and the screen turned on
    • Image cache moved to Ram instead of device storage. The app will use no more than 50 MB anyway, I think it's a good compromise between some extra speed and memory load.
    • Paypal link changed from a generic payment to a Money Box to avoid fees


    USAGE HINTS:
    • Prepend a '@' before the nick to search for users. Note that shadow banned users won't appear in the list, but you can still open their profile manually
    • If the login fails, the app will create a file named bird10log.txt in your documents folder, with the details of the error returned by Twitter
    • It is normal that the tweets will look like they were posted using the android app. This is not something I have control over, it depends on the server


    Download link: https://mega.nz/file/1B8hBSyQ#c4TLFc...ViJaD25y-KlchM

    NOTE: You'll need to sideload the app to install it, see here for a guide

    If you appreciate the app and want to support the development here's a paypal link




    Update 2.3.0.0:

    • Added a general Twitter search, prepend @ to search for users like in previous versions
    • Added trends in search page, tapping opens them. They're shown in the location specified in your account settings
    • The search results page lets you filter by photos or videos, scroll down from the top of the tweet list reveal such options
    • Tapping on an hashtag makes a search for it
    • The notifications are now localized in your device language
    • Reduced connection latency, opening a conversation/profile/search should feel quicker
    • Removed generic error messages, now they really mean what they say
    • Fixed images occasionally displaying the wrong preview
    • Some more bug fixing

    Download link: https://mega.nz/file/gJ1Ryb5B#t9ANm4...eFudoYDEsy2Nr4




    Update 2.2.1.0:

    • Added a proper profile page, tapping on a mention opens the respective profile
    • You can see quoted tweets instead of their link
    • Added indication of who retweeted a tweet
    • You can now zoom on images when you open them
    • Gifs load more reliably
    • Tweaked some visuals
    • Tabs now stay open instead of resetting when you change to another
    • Support for http compression, less data usage
    • Bug fixing, such as: very long links not tappable, error when searching a profile with special characters, timeline overwrite when tweeting, useless reloads of profile icons





    Update 2.1.0.0:

    • You can quote tweets
    • You can search for users and open their timelines (or do so by tapping on their profile picture)
    • Added notifications tab. It automatically refreshes in the background every 60s, you'll get the red asterisk symbol on the menu button when there are unread entries.
      They're synced with your account, so reading the notification in the app will mark it as read also on the website and any other twitter app, and vice versa.
    • Bug fixing

    Download link: https://mega.nz/#!lYk3nIID!42IbsXeEe...Sr_LR_J9UFAwMQ




    Update 2.0.0.0:

    • You can now open tweets and see conversations
    • You can reply to tweets
    • Added support for animated gifs in tweets
    • Fixed images 'popping' on load
    • Simpler login flow

    Download link: https://mega.nz/#!VR0CES5Q!OPIVoDgWt...AB3vT2YOqsv_uE




    Update 1.4.0.1:

    • Added favorites and profile tweet lists
    • The app now loads more tweets when you reach the bottom of the timeline
    • Added support for playing videos in tweets
    • Added retweets and likes count
    • Improved app version check

    Hello there!
    I'm making a native App for twitter as there doesn't seem to be any working anymore.
    You can check your timeline, retweet and like. It shows tweets with more than 140 characters instead of cutting them with suspension dots, and it can show / save / share all the images attached to a tweet, not just the first one.
    You can't reply yet, but for now it allows you to open tweets in the browser in order to do it. I know the functionality is limited in its current state, but I wanted to make it available as soon as possible.

    Update: Tweeting is now supported, and you can attach images as well!


    I hope you enjoy it!

    Were you planning to offer if via other means... if BBW gets shutdown next month?

    I know there is a lot of interest in a good Twitter App... once you get the bugs worked out.

    If it gets shut down (I really hope it doesn't though) I'll make it available as a .bar to sideload and announce new builds here on the forums

    As for the bugs, it's feature limited, but I'm confident to say it has no issues on the functionality it offers up to now

    Thanks for supporting BB10 users! Installed the app and I will subscribe for updates, for sure.

    Hey Simo,

    First, you're AWESOME for developing this new native app to fill a void for BB10 users!

    Second, the current word is that Blackberry World will remain open but in "static" mode (so no updates, etc.) after 12/31/2019. I'm totally down with you continuing to use BBW and with any luck they will still take updates, but if you are willing to make it available as a .BAR (so among other reasons we can add it to the Developer-Released .BAR thread here on CB, so everyone can get it regardless of BBW status--or whether they think to search on BBW), that would be excellent. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss that further.

    But either way, THANKS for supporting BB10 as a new native app developer! I also see you ask for donations on the Bird10 page in BBW...care to share a Paypal or other link here?

    I know I come a bit late but thank you!

    Starting with the latest release 1.3.0.1 I embedded a version check on startup, so that if you fall behind it prompts you to look on BBW or Creckberry forums for an updated version. The info about the latest version is hosted on a personal netlify site, so even if BBW becomes static I can trigger the popup whenever I attach a .bar here.
    I have yet to include a link to the thread in the app as I don't know if I should create a new one for the releases or just use this one


    THANKS for supporting BB10 as a new native app developer!
    Haha, actually I made another app before this but since it's for italian trains you can't see it outside Italy

    care to share a Paypal or other link here?
    I've added it to the first post, thanks for the suggestion

    Blackberry World has become unaccessible for developers since December 1st. The only way to update apps now is to sideload them, check the first post for the download link

    EDIT: I've checked and can confirm that PayPal donation page doesn't load anymore on the stock browser. You'll need to do so from desktop, sorry. I'll change the link to a paypal.me generic donation in the next release

    Would it be possible to help me sideload your update using Windows? I find the above guide with Chrome confusing, so basically what I would like to do is download the link and then connect my phone to my PC and somehow transfer it. Could you please help me do that? Many thanks in advance!

    This will be the future for everything BB10 pretty much. Autoloaders and workarounds and sideloading so you must understand why its recommended to move away from unsupported OS

    Back on topic now.

    OP, thanks for the fantastic app. I sideloaded it successfully and really enjoying the new features. Will we be able to click on user pics and go to their profiles in a future update? How about Hub integration?

    Alright this is back open but keep the discussion to the app and not go down off topic again. Bla1ze already nuked the entire thread once and infractions were handed out to some members. Lets not need to do that again. Play nice!

    For the first, yes. For the second, I don't know: Twitter public APIs have been severely limited last year (that's the reason why the official app stopped delivering notifications, or not showing replies to tweets older than 7 days, or not sending/receiving DMs..). To get a realtime feed you need to go for premium/enterprise APIs, which cost way too much.
    For example, I haven't made a Tweet page to see the replies yet because of these limitations and wanted to look for another way, which is to spoof the requests and use the private endpoints used by the iOS/Android apps (don't ask how, it's probably illegal). I'll try, but no promises on this

    If you guys want to know more about the 'behind the scenes' of the app and what you can or cannot do with the free APis just ask, I'll explain
