    Really liking the app but unfortunately it's not the greatest to look at on the Q10 - timeline takes up a ton of space, mostly due to the large banner on the top. Any chance of shrinking things a bit and/or losing the top banner to make for easier viewing on the Q10?
    Hmmm, I see what you mean. I'll see what I can do

    Any advance on being able to upload pictures?
    I've tried a few libraries and ideas and talked with some other developers, but no it's not working yet. I've actually been holding off on the latest release, hoping again to sneak photos in there... but I'll still probably submit it in a few days, as it has a ton of little changes that are pretty neat.

    And if anyone knows of a pure javascript library (that's the catch it seems, as it exists in other environments and languages) which can handle Twitter's update_with_media as a function call, please gimmee a shout

    Version 1.1.25 submitted for approval. Tons of neat and helpful tweaks, including:

    Your favorited tweets are shaded in pink:

    Tap on someone's location in their profile to map it in BlackBerry maps:
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-map.png
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-waterloo.png

    Option to "peek" (show icons only) instead of "show" (show icons and text) context menus:
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-peek.png

    Ability to quote a tweet when replying:
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-quotedreply.png

    Buttons to move to top or bottom of user lists:
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-topbottom.png

    Option to display @username along with name:
    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-usernames.png

    Per user request, an option for Extra Small font, which might help with the smaller Q10 display as well. I'm looking into other ways to make viewing on the Q10 easier too.

    There are also lots of behind-the-scenes changes to fix some things I'd noticed, such as images not always loading as quickly as I'd like. The entire app should feel a bit more polished now, with a Splash Screen, resized icons, more consistent icons, etc.

    Update on the abilty uploading photos: still working on it, but I think I'm seeing the proverbial light at the end of the javascript tunnel. I've found some help, and I think we'll have it soon.

    As always, if you find a bug or have a suggestion, feel free to email me at: kmsoft@comcast.net.

    The official changelog:

    Great stuff. Look forward to the picture upload facility. Still won't realistically go back until that's sorted.

    Sure, I'm actually trying to port the whole BB10 1.1.25 version to the PlayBook right now. Give me a couple days to work out the cosmetic oddities, and hopefully you'll see it submitted for approval this week

    This is what happens if the last thing you did was perform a search. Every time I open the app now it re-attempts the last search and I get this error before I could navigate to the Home timeline...

    [edit] Nevermind...stopped receiving the error.

    I just downloaded this because there were two things about Blaq that kind of irked me... The blank active frame and no hub notifications. This has those and more so I'm pretty happy so far. Add a dark theme and that will be the last thing on my wish list. Good job!

    Glad it stopped

    I can't explain that one, especially since most of my in-app error reporting will show the function title in the error message so I have an idea where the problem occurred. That kinda looks like the Browser couldn't render the page for some reason... like maybe low on memory, etc.?

    Do you know what might have fixed it? Did you restart the phone? Close other apps, etc.?

    Release 1.1.28 submitted for approval. The biggest (though invisible) change was integrating the code with the PlayBook version so that releases for both can occur at nearly the same time now.

    But I also added in some new features, including a Retweeted view which shows you tweets of yours which have been retweeted by others, and a Retweets view which shows you retweets of the last viewed tweet.

    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-retweeted30.png

    To view the retweets of a tweet, just tap on the tweet then tap Retweets:

    New twitter client "Willow" available for BB10-retweets30.png

    You can also show the Retweets count next to the @username (you can turn this off in Options), as well as the item count (tweets or users, depending on what you're viewing) in the Title Bar (you can turn this off in Options as well):

    A very similar version was also submitted for the PlayBook.

    Hey I recently decided to try willow and for the most part it's impressive but we definitely need the photo support. Also, how does one select a tweet and retweet it?

    Tap the desired tweet (which opens the Context Menu), then tap Retweet (to use Twitter's built-in Retweet function) or Retweet Custom (if you want to add a comment and do it the "old school way").

    Understood, but you're also likely to continue seeing releases with other improvements and features while I work on uploading photos. I try to accumulate the easier feature requests and get them out in releases ASAP. Things like photos and a dark theme are being worked on, but are taking a bit longer

    Twitter changed their API today, which broke the ability to post tweets from Willow.

    My sincere apologies for missing that one. I'll submit a fix to BlackBerry for approval tonight. Everything else should work fine, it's just a problem with posting tweets.

    A fix (version 1.1.29) for the tweeting error was submitted to BlackBerry for approval. Hopefully it'll be approved soon

    See below Image uploading working at last!

    I still have to clean up a number of things and test things some more (just got it working today), but I'm hoping to submit a release with it within a week You'll also see lots of other suggestions being addressed, including a smaller title bar, improved Find, proper Retweet display format, higher-resolution user images, Conversation View between just you and another user, etc.

    Do you need to purchase the app twice for z10 and PlayBook? Or does one purchase give you access on both devices?
