Twitter for BlackBerry Smartphones v2.0 (Beta): Simplified Navigation


Twitter for BlackBerry Smartphones v2.0

Update: Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones v2.0 is now available in BlackBerry App World!

Hot on the heels of the official release of Twitter® for BlackBerry® smartphones v1.1 is the latest beta version of Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones – version 2.0 – which is available in BlackBerry® Beta Zone today.

Another release already, you say? Our Twitter app team here at Research In Motion® (RIM®) has adopted an iterative development approach, which means smaller scoped releases will be available to you on a more frequent basis. This means you get access to more features, faster!

What’s New in v2.0?

The focus of this iteration is simplified navigation. You’ll notice that the navigation bar has a sleek new look with simplified access to popular Twitter features. For instance, we’ve combined the ‘Search’, ‘Find People’, and ‘Popular Topics’ screens into a new Single Search Screen. Now you can search for Tweets and people from a single location, as well as view Trends and Saved Searches, unifying the entire Twitter Search experience.

Another great feature for BlackBerry® 6 users: Twitter Search works with the universal search feature on your BlackBerry smartphone! Search for anything and the universal search tool will pull in relevant results from your entire BlackBerry smartphone, including all Search categories within Twitter.

In addition to the new black chrome color scheme, you’ll notice there’s a new “Compose Tweet” button located on the Nav Bar that acts as a single touch-point for composing Tweets from anywhere in the app.
