Press Release

09.15.2009 -- San Diego, CA – TweetPhoto today formally announced its partnership with Virginia based ÜberTwitter, a company devoted to delivering highly functional Twitter clients for mobile devices, with the release of ÜberTwitter’s beta 5 BlackBerry application. 

“With the launch of our new developer API this partnership has enabled our company to move swiftly into BlackBerry handsets by leveraging ÜberTwitter’s existing user base which has proven to be quite photo centric – one of our core values,” said Sean Callahan, President and Co-Founder of TweetPhoto. “What makes ÜberTwitter great it that it supports everything from the BlackBerry Pearl to the Storm and Tour giving our users even more ways to upload and share photos on the go.” 

Last week TweetPhoto became the default photo sharing provider in, the ever-popular Twitter client, TweetDeck based on the merits of its developer platform. More and more developers are turning to TweetPhoto every day. 

“We chose TweetPhoto as our default photo service because we wanted to give our users the fastest, easiest and most reliable photo service available,” said Paul McDonald, founder of ÜberTwitter. “From a user-experience standpoint, TweetPhoto offers the richest experience to our users.   And from a developer's perspective, TweetPhoto's API is extensive, reliable, and extremely easy to integrate.” 

According to Sean Callahan, “In supporting the development process of integrating TweetPhoto into ÜberTwitter we made available several new additions to our photo sharing platform specifically for BlackBerry and other mobile developers. Most notably chunked uploads which allows users to upload larger photos from their handsets.” 

The new version of ÜberTwitter will be the most extensive integration of TweetPhoto into any one application.  Among bug fixes and further stabilizing the application, Beta 5 will utilize TweetPhoto’s uploading, voting, favoriting, commenting and geo-tagging feature-sets.  The app will also allow users to view all photos they have uploaded, comments posted on photos and much more. 

ÜberTwitter offers a free version of the software, supported by advertisements, and a paid version for only $4.99 which comes with unlimited upgrades for one year and no advertisements forever on any of the new versions released during the subscription year. 

The new version of ÜberTwitter will be available this morning at http://www.ubertwitter.com/bb/download.php and will be submitted as a free application on BlackBerry’s App World, the official store for BlackBerry apps.

ÜberTwitter Launches With TweetPhoto Integration!


...it would be nice to be able to select which Twitter Photo site I'd like to use. I have many pics on TwitPic and I don't like using another site. I'd like to see a paid version with more options for the user :)

You silly, silly app. Never mind that TwitPic is the defacto standard for posting pics to Twitter. You crazy app, you do things your way! First, your integrate Twitvid, a service that converts all uploaded videos to Flash - thus rendering them unviewable on any BlackBerry device once posted - and now this! What next? Annoying ads all over yourself?

OK, while appreciate the ability to use something other than Uber's homespun picture upload site, I guess I don't see what the opposition to integrating TwitPic is. At least give us a choice (especially for those of us who purchased the app). I mean Twitterberry allows you to pick from a few different picture upload sites, and it hasn't been in active development for a while now. We all like to have choices. Fine, make the default TweetPhoto, but allow the user to change that if desired.

why not Twitpic? i have to send an MMS message to twitpic just to use it ... c'mon UberTwitter! get it together.

Good to see I'm not the only one who is frustrated with this lack of option. Also, why can't we click on the avatar and see a larger one? I've seen other phone Twitter apps and you can select a user's avatar to see an enlarged one. After thinking about it, I'm assuming UberTwitter is not integrating with TwitPic because TwitPic may not be paying them and other companies are. Sort of like how software companies pay Microsoft to have their software pre-installed in their OS.

For the same reasons noted above & the fact that TwixTreme just runs better & looks better on my bold.

Ubertwitter rules. It's the best app that I've found for my storm.

With the new update you can select between tweetphoto and mypict as photo upload service. I can only imagine that they will add additional support in future updates. Note that Ubertwitter is still saying they are in beta... damnit... relax and go back to your precious twitterberry.

I tried this app. It worked but bound up the internet browser.
That was on a 8830 I will try it again when I get my Storm 2! :)
