Good news! Today we’ve added Torch and BlackBerry OS 6.0 support to SocialScope. This was a big project and required rewriting an insane amount of code. There were easier ways to make it work, but we wanted to ensure the blazing fast speed and low battery utilization that you’ve come to love.
In addition to to porting SocialScope to BlackBerry OS 6.0 we added some cool new tricks:
- Swipe left and right to switch tabs
- When reading a message swipe left and right to switch message
- Double tap a tab icon to go to the top of the message list
- Search twitter from your home screen through universal search
- Go to your friend’s profiles from the home screen through universal search
- Crazy fast scrolling
- Super low battery usage
We also fixed bugs that caused connection issues, login problems, settings not saving and periodic high battery usage.
p.s. To all of you that held off upgrading to the Torch or carried around two BlackBerries so you wouldn’t lose SocialScope you rock! We think this version will make you happy :)
