Tweetian reaches another milestone

Published by at

Tweetian is a free-of-charge Twitter client that we reviewed earlier this year. It was originally written as an exercise in learning Qt and QML, but it has since become a fully featured Twitter client, with a smoothly animated user interface that manages to blend Twitter's branding style with the Nokia Belle style. Dickson, Tweetian's developer, has just announced a new 'mile stone' version (1.3) of Tweetian on his blog with a long list of improvements.



Before and after the 1.3 update


  • Redesign of the top header - now you can view how many new tweets in timeline/mentions/DMs in one glance! You can also click on it
  • to switch the view if you don't like to swipe.
  • The maps thumbnail is loaded from Nokia Maps API instead of using the heavy-weighted component, to prevent the UI getting freeze when loading it.
  • Able to save image. Image is normally saved in E:/Images/ (Symbian) or /home/user/MyDocs/Pictures/ (MeeGo)
