Yatca Updated To Ver. 1.2.1 - Many Fixes!

Yatca Updated!

Last week @azeis brought you news of yatca (Yet Another Twitter Client App) and many users either loved it or hated it. Of those that hated it the biggest gripe was the inability to control what tweets actually were showing up in their message list.

Well, Yatca has now been updated to version 1.2.1 and the developer has addressed a lot of those concerns with this update. So if you had complaints about the application before, be sure to read on to get a look at the changelog as you may be pleasantly surprised to see your complaint is no longer a complaint at all.

The changelog for Yatca is as follows, Storms owners ensure you read the last one:

  • In many corporate environments, BES is used only to provide e-mail delivery, and Internet access is provided using BIS or the carrier network. Yatca can now support this scenario thanks to a new setting on the Options screen. By default Yatca will continue to connect to Twitter through the BES and only users who experience connection problems should change this setting.
  • Curve 8900 users should now be able to take and upload photos!
  • Users on all devices should notice an improvement in the quality of uploaded photos.
  • In previous versions, Yatca would always refresh the timeline on starting, even if the auto-refresh setting was ‘None’. This has now been fixed.
  • Some of the commands have been renamed to be more meaningful, e.g. the ‘Yatca Update Status’ command is now the ‘Update Twitter Status’ command.
  • In response to a very common request, the ‘Update Twitter Status’ command is now available from all the system applications. So it is no longer necessary to open the Messages application to tweet!
  • Feedback from Storm users suggests that Yatca works better on the Storm when compatibility mode is disabled. So I have added a couple of attributes to the OTA download file to force the Storm to run Yatca in this way. N.B. These attributes are only detected if you uninstall the previous version of Yatca and then do a clean install of the new version – upgrading will not suffice.

Yatca Updated To Ver. 1.2.1 - Many Fixes!


Yatca is my favourite twitter client as it doesn't rely on APN for _ANYTHING_

My network provider charges me for traffic through APN, but nothing for BIS traffic.

Twitterberry can work through BIS, but when using twitpic, it always fails (even the latest beta), unless I set an APN.

TinyTwitter just fails from the get go (due to APN also I believe).

With Yatca, I can filter what messages get into my Message List, and I can use twitpic without having APN set.

My only request, would be to have Yatca behave a bit more like a regular application, so I could close it at will, or so that I could have a full list of all my twits (with the filtered out ones).

Does this still require "Show Sent Messages" to be enabled? That's a deal-breaker for me and it makes no sense to require this. I don't want to see my sent messages mixed in with my incoming.

This also doesn't show avatars (another deal breaker)
And if this would be it's own app with a small window on top or bottom to post tweets...I would consider it.

I still can't upload pictures. Not sure why. Otherwise I really like Yatca. Can someone shed some light on my inability to upload pics? I have the latest version of Yatca downloaded.

I didn't see the option to upload pictures, the only option i seen was to take a picture but I got an error message when I tried to take a picture. 8900

Updated twitterberry won't work on my phone so give me a reason to try out yatca. we'll see how I like it.

Is one of the fixes "actually working"? Because any app that installs with no icon, always runs in the background, can't be killed, and doesn't actually DO ANYTHING... y'know, isn't any good. And that's what the LAST version did on my Storm.

Is there a way they can filter the YATCA messages to it's own folder instead of using the main message folder? I NEVER use this folder and it's a pain since I am used to SMS/email going to their own folder.
