By Adam Zeis on 9 Oct 2013 02:37 pm EDT

Our favorite Twitter client Blaq has again been updated, now sitting at v1.2.1. The update brings along a slew of new features as well as plenty of fixes to keep things running in tip-top shape. It's been a bit since an official release was dropped so for those of you that have been patiently waiting, here you go! 

New features of v1.2.1 include:

  • Account settings are now accessible from the accounts screen. Just hold down on an account.
  • Ability to toggle Hold place in timeline in Account Settings
  • Real-time streaming is now compressed - you'll be using 1/5th the data you were using before.
  • Instant push - When another Blaq user mentions you or you mention them, pushes are instant.
  • Peformance tweaks
  • BBM Channel pins are now recognized in tweets and direct messages
  • Network performance improvements

Bugs Fixed:

  • Users being logged out if they follow more than 600 accounts.
  • Share card slow to load
  • Duplicate notifications
  • Keyboard shortcuts in Lists (finally)
  • Photos and BBM have been disabled for scheduled tweets since scheduled tweets work while the application is closed
  • Device Identifying Information permission required or application crashes
  • Retweeted tweet by verified account shows non-verified user as verified
  • Compose options don't repopulate when going back into options screen
  • Some other crashes

Blaq is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices for $2.99. The update is free for exisitng users.

Blaq for BlackBerry 10 updated to v1.2.1


It's called 'Blaq' for a reason.

Doesn't matter. It's called 'Blaq'. Not called 'White&Blaq'. Just Blaq... if you don't like it then use the official Twitter for BlackBerry.

Chilax bro. Don't act like a b***h. It's my opinion, I love the app I just said, you know what? I don't even need to explain myself for you man. So sad tool see people always looking for negatives on this site. You have a problem with what I said? Copy it, paste it, print it, then s***e it.

P. S: If they actually add that option at some point I would love to hear what you're gonna say. If.

Brilliant. This is my "go to" Twitter client. Works seamlessly and love the ability to schedule tweets.

Posted via CB10. See my BBM Channel C00045D82

Where do people get the time to follow 600 people? Productivity in the world is going to go down due to social networking proliferation ;)

Does this app support push notifications?
From the official app I never get notified when someone I follow tweets ,i have to open the app to see new tweets from them........
Does this work ok on this app?
Thank you :)

My preference would be for the active frame colours and pattern to be changed. It doesn't reflect the quality of the rest of the app. Green camo :o

Such an astonishing app & by a country mile the best twitter app there is.

Blaq is soo much better than the official Twitter app. Love the design and everything.
