Blaq for BlackBerry PlayBook

Been waiting on a Twitter client for your BlackBerry PlayBook? Well the wait is finally over. Blaq for BlackBerry PlayBook is here and ready for you to get your Twitter on. This awesome app comes from Kisai Labs and is the best Twitter experience on the PlayBook by far. Blaq has a great UI, plenty of what you expect from Twitter including native or editable retweets, in-app notifications, web and image previews and best of all real-time updates. Until now there have really been no other solid Twitter apps for the PlayBook, so it is well worth the $1.99 for Blaq if you're at all a Twitter user. Check out the link below for more or head to BlackBerry App World from your PlayBook to download.

I like blaq, but I hope they support this more than their blackberry version...

The implication is that blaq is the first twitter client for the playbook but there has already been a twitter client for the Playbook for a while, Tweedless.

Invader3K

Yeah, but Tweedless is not very good, frankly.

kingofthenerds

Tweedless might be OK if they made any effort at all to explain their UI, but as it is you are correct. Still doesn't change the face that blaq is not the first non-web twitter client.

D_Town

Where in the article does it say "first" anything? Why is there an argument about a comment that wasn't made? There is no implication that it is the "first ever". The implication is that it is the first decent app worth using.

shupor

Haha! Classic case of people not reading things through.

"Been waiting on a Twitter client for your BlackBerry PlayBook? Well the wait is finally over"

this indicates that there are no other twitter clients for playbook yet

looks nice, cant believe RIM havent made one yet!

D_Town

"Until now there have really been no other solid Twitter apps for the PlayBook"

Clears up that supposed "implication". Anyone who has used those others (i.e Tweeless) have indeed still be "waiting on a Twitter client" because the others were unusable.

Sirhill

Nice app. i think it will get a lot of use, and yes tweedless is a not so good app at all.

zhafryy

can't buy from appworld. keep getting error 11000 and paypal saying billing method not supported. help please.

jcarty

Try downloading it from the webstore then refresh your My World list on your PlayBook.

kbeard26

so RT doesnt work for me?

jcarty

Tap on the retweet icon for native RT. Long press on it to edit a retweet.

RHCE

well if thats the case i'll use twitter on the web on my playbook

that app crashed my browser... had to delete it or wouldn't work again even after system restore

Gilahiker

Nice app! Wanted to post a tweet with a Playbook photo this weekend, but had to do it by sending photo to myself and using phone to post using UberSocial. Wished I had this app this weekend!

Only glitches so far: RT didn't erase from box after sending and an original tweet sort of ran into my photo so I couldn't read what I was typing. Despite these issues I really appreciate the flexibility of the app.

$1.99 is definitely more fair, and it is a fair app on the BB. Never could get it working in OS6 w/o giving it "trusted status" (a big no-no)...and stay outta my organizer! Kept hanging so deleted.

As mentioned in an earlier post, updates addressing such issues not terribly forthcoming. I did prefer it over other clients when it worked, though. Functionally was solid, though the colors sort of wear on you after a while. BB's are about functionality, so it was par for the course. If they got that down, you'll likely be happier than not.

Obviously, I do not own a PBook (yet). Former Storm I owner so waiting for PBook 2. :) I "did my part" for R&D donations.

Best of luck and please keep posting thoughts!

Sooo... Is Blaq ever coming to the BlackBerry Storms?

ofutur

The way authorization works in this app is a big no-no. Anybody can build another app that would impersonate this one.
Playbook apps need server side components for authorization or keys will be stolen...

Not first one, TweeKL Afaik is the FIRST one.
