Twitter for Blackberry Has Solid Features, Throws Few Curves

The official Twitter app from RIM has finally left beta and we had a chance to spend some quality time with it today. The first thing we noticed was how good the UI looked. Compared to other free Twitter options on the Blackberry such as UberTwitter or Seesmic, we think this has a great interface, though we can’t say it has a better UI than Twitter apps seen on iPhone or Android.

In terms of typical Twitter functions, the app seemed to do a good job. When composing a tweet typing the “@” sign brought up a list of users you follow for easy @mentioning. Adding a picture to a tweet was easy as well: hitting the camera icon will take you to your saved pictures; you can even snap one on the spot. The 640×480 image is automatically sent to TwitPic.
