BlackBerry Unwanted Updates 2Day: UberTwitter, Now Ad-Free

ubertwitterBlackBberryStorm.jpgAttention, UberTwitters, just in case you haven't heard the new version of the beta 4 update no longer has ads. The UberTwitter BlackBerry app  makes it easier to tweet from BlackBerry smartphones. Many have called it the top most popular BlackBerry Twitter app.

The fiasco, as some reporters called it, was tweeted about of course. Basically, UberTwitter added advertisments to its free Beta 4 version which caught frequent users by surprise who in turn complained by tweeting on the web.

The complaints worked. UberTwitter posted this today:

"We have been listening and have heard you loud and clear! We will not
turn advertisements on again until we can offer a a paid option with no
advertisements. The paid version will be less then $5 and will likely
be a year long subscription model, i.e. all upgrades for a year. If you
purchase during the beta period, the year won't start until we release
version 1.0. Thank you for your patience and your feedback!"

The ÜberTwitter client supports BlackBerry smartphones unning 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7 which means BlackBerry Bold, Storm, Tour, Pearl and Curve.

Other free BlackBerry Twitter apps include TweetCaster and TwitterBerry.

The UberTwitter app features include:

  • Integrated ability to upload pictures to a site dedicated to serving ÜberTwitter users.
  • Ability to optionally update your Google Talk status with your last
    tweet, making your tweets reach a wider audience then just people
    following you on Twitter.
  • Automatically update your location based on the cell tower information provided by your phone, no GPS hardware required.
  • Send videos embedded in your tweet.
  • See everyone who is tweeting near you.
  • Full support for viewing direct messages to you and from you

Earlier in August, when Twitter was under attack, UberTwitter also went down.
