    I have a storm. I am having trouble entering my username and password for things such as facebook and twitter. Suggestions? What am I doing wrong? Have tried in both landscape and portrait.

    You might want to make sure it's not capitalizing the first letter of your password. I've run into this problem before with apps the bring up a text box for entering passwords.

    The Twitter App is real cool. You can create "Groups" where you have the option to see your Groups' statuses rather than scrolling thru everyone you're following.
    Great tip! That makes Twitter so much more usable!!!

    i like this app, too, but i'm pretty suprised that you can't reply to your friends' facebook status or post directly on their wall. unless i'm completely missing it, it seems you can only send them a message. it is fast, though...

    I had the same issue and eventually gave up and deleted the app since that was what I mainly liked...

    I'm new - to the forums, the site and Blackberrys in general.

    I love using Twitter on this app.

    I see people asking, sooo... To add an app to SnapTu, hit the blackberry key when you have the app open and click "add application" for a list of available apps.

    Let me get this straight, so on facebook, you can't reply to friends status' or comments? If not then that pretty much ruins it...

    I might still check it out though.

    yeah you can reply and all that. You can also check your inbox and it loads the feed so much faster than the native facebook app

    the interface could be cleaned up a bit and text entry is somewhat obnoxious as it brings up a blank entry pad but i use it for the facebook/twitter alone. they seem to be updating the app pretty well too

    i can't understand why RIM's FB client is not as quick or smooth as this, although it is prettier. viewing photos is incredibly sluggish on the RIM version, even with 3g/wifi...which to me is ludicrous.

    does RIM's FB client go through their NOC? is that why it's slow? does SnapTu's FB client go to FB directly, instead of going through RIM?

    Oh my god, the flickr app on this program is amazing. It's not even very slow. It's pretty quick, it's pretty, it's functional, it's fantastic! You can do pretty much anything you can do online on the PC with flickr, right on your phone.

    If you're big on flickr, I'd get this app just for the flickr aspect of it!

    Otherwise, the other stuff is good too, but I don't use facebook (don't have one), twitter (don't have one), sudoku (never played, I prefer the DS game "Picross") and most of the other stuff is all intended for the UK.

    By the way, this app loads way more information then my other apps (with Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds) and this one still leaks virtually no memory. Snaptu needs to show the other Devs how it's done.

    I got mine in AppWorld. It works on the 9810, too. Although the fonts are smaller.

    I came across this App a little while ago while I was searching for an app so I can keep up with Cricket scores. Yes I said it, Cricket scores. I used to use an app called MobiCast on my curve but it doesn't work too well on the storm. While searching I came upon an App called Snaptu, this app is kinda like a widget bar, where you can install various widgets and run them one at a time. The app can be downloaded form to your BB by visiting Snaptu. I was a little shocked when I saw size was only 139.2Kb.

    Once app is downloaded and launched, you will be greeted by a loading page and then the Snaptu main page. There you will see News, Facebook, MyMovies, AccuWeather, The Guardian News Reader, Picasa and Twitter. There are additional Apps that you can load to Snaptu, I will get into that a little later. The UI is very clean and responds very well. App is quick and very well designed. The one major flaw that I will get into later as well is if you are a Storm user, this app does not like to be switched from Landscape to Portrait and vice versa.

    From the main menu if you hit the BB Menu key you get the option to Add Application, Remove Application, Tell a friend, Send Feedback, etc. If you select add application you are greeted with additional Apps that can be added to the main screen. If there is an app that is installed that you want to remove, just highlight it and hit menu, remove application.

    Apps Available


    This is the app that I was originally looking for. This app is for individuals that are fans of cricket. This is a pretty slick app, you can get Live Scores, Fixtures (Upcoming Matches), Results and News.

    News & Blogs
    Seeing this section reminds me of Viigo. This allows you to feeds for news, entertainment, blogs, etc that you would like to have access to. This is nice because personally I deleted Viigo because it was slow and affected my phones performance. Using Snaptu so far has not affected performance and as I said responds very well. So this is a keeper. By default you have Engadget, Google, Perez Hilton (lol), Reuter, Yahoo, etc already there. You can add your own channels by clicking Add More Channels. You can select popular channels, search for a channel of add your own via URL.

    This allows you to log into your FaceBook account and see Status Updates, Friends, Inbox, Your Profile, etc. Select friends and you get a list with a search option at the top. Click on a friend and you can View Albums, Photos, Send a message, Invite to Snaptu, See their Networks, Employer and B-Day Photos loads very quickly and I must say this is a lot quicker that using the FaceBook App. At the top of the home page you can view you Inbox and Update your Facebook status.

    Live FootBall Scores
    Soccer for Americans. Lol.
    This allows you to see Matches being played, Tournaments, My Teams and News.

    By going here you get 4 options.
    Out now - see movies that are playing.
    UK Charts - see UK box office charts
    Search - Search for movies.
    News - Catch up on movie news.

    Allows you to add a city and get weather updates. You can get a hour by hour view, and satellite image. Both of those will invoke the browser.

    The Guardian News Reader
    Never heard of this one before but it is a news reader with various categories of news, sports, etc. You can also add and remove channels.

    Allows you to access your Picasa account if you have one, search for Photos and view public albums. I personally don't have one as of yet so I wasn't able to log in. Searching for photos was very quick. Viewing photos is instant.

    Needs no explanation. This allows you to log into Twitter, Update status, view replies, view direct messages, add, remove and view favorites, view followers, people you are following, view profiles, retweet, etc. This is also a very nice app that works very well. When viewing a tweet, if you click on it you are presented with View sender, reply, retweet, favorite (add tweet to favorites) as well a searches ex #epicfail.

    This is pretty slick. You can look up the meaning of words and phrases.

    The game of Sudoku is a fun, challenging game that will keep you occupied for a good while. This to me is a great addition for those moments when you need something out of the ordinary to keep you occupied (Lunch breaks, waiting on bus/train, etc.) Game has three modes, Easy, Medium and Hard. Fun Fun Fun.

    Reuters News Reader
    Does Oddly Enough ring a bell? Well if not you gotta check it out. I think everyone knows what Reuter News is. you can add channels from news, Business, entertainment, etc.

    London Tube
    Trip information, Closure alerts, Plan a Trip, etc

    BBC News Reader
    Get news from all over the world. Add and remove channels.

    Google Calendar
    Allows you to log into Google Calendar, create events, See whats due today, etc.

    London Pub Guide
    This is for all the UK drinkers. Search for Pubs, Find reviews and Save locations. I am hoping they get a version of this for us over in the US. This could be a very handy app.

    Europe Concert Tickets
    Search for concert tickets by date, performer and categories.

    All in all, this is a one stop app that has great potentials and I can see myself and others really using this on a everyday basis. Since installing this app, I have uninstall 3-4 apps that this one app will replace.

    The few cons so far are:

    *App works by touching the screen so it take some getting use to since I have gotten used to SurePress.
    *As stated above, app doesn't like to be switched from portrait to landscape and vice versa. This is a pic of what you get when you switch orientations.

    Other than the above issues there is nothing else that I have noticed that will affect you using this app. I hope you all check this out if you haven't done so already. I am sure you will enjoy it as much I have.
