Tweetian (v1.8) makes the jump to the 'new' Twitter APIs

Published by at

File this application update as 'essential', if only because this new release of the insanely great Twitter client 'Tweetian' makes the jump to Twitter's new APIs. In other words, older versions of Tweetian will stop working around the end of February, in just a couple of weeks time. Grab 1.8, anyway, it's a free download and will see both Symbian (and Meego) users happily tweeting away for months, if not years to come. Screenshots and full changelog below.

Loading up Tweetian 1.8 - I like to run it on my AMOLED-screened phones in 'Dark' mode, to save power.

'Streaming' mode is highly recommended by the developer, to save bandwidth and better fit in with Twitter's new APIs.

As usual, there are great image previewing functions built in.
