UberTwitter Acquired By PostUp — Company Renamed To UberMedia

We just heard that UberTwitter, arguably the most popular third party Twitter client for the BlackBerry, has been acquired by PostUp and that the company has been renamed to UberMedia.

Chief executive Bill Gross mentions that the company is working to become the best “Twitter partner” for the ecosystem with the recent acquisition, but after buying another Twitter company Echofon earlier this month, it may be gobbling up applications in the attempt to offer a  robust and attractive communication package, which may be in direct competition to Twitter.

With the addtition of UberTwitter, along with Twidroyd and Echofon, UberMedia now Twitter solutions for the BlackBerry, Android, an the iPhone.  I wouldn’t be shocked if you see a Windows Phone 7, or, maybe a webOS acquisition taking place in the not too distant future.

UberTwitter has just announced that UberTwitter 1.0 has just been officially released after a long 18 month beta period.

Version 1.0 is now available for download! Yes, you read that right, we’re out of beta. After almost 18 months of reading and responding to over ten thousand emails, and using what we learned to direct and refine the feature set, the most popular Twitter client is now at version 1.0. The headline feature in this release is Facebook integration, of course we could have brought you the same integration that everyone else has, simple echoing your tweet text to Facebook, but no, we wanted your posts from ÜberTwitter to be first class citizens in your Facebook stream, complete with rich media previews for pictures and location. Über posts if you will! We think you’ll really like this feature!

3rd Party BlackBerry Twitter Client UberTwitter Updated With New Map Options

We just heard that UberTwitter Beta 9 Release 2 is now available.  The major change in this version is the switch away from Google maps and to the choice of either BlackBerry Maps or MapQuest.  UberTwitter hopes to bring Google Maps back in future release as well as add support for Bing Maps.

UberTwitter Beta 9 Release 2 change log:

  • Map Provider Allow users to select either MapQuest (default) or BlackBerry maps to display users locations.
  • User action to retrieve a map You now have to click the ‘Retrieve Map’ button after opening a tweet in order for the map to be retrieved. This will result in substantially lower bandwidth requirements and improved battery life.
  • UberChannel date display bug fix Fixed a bug where tweets in UberChannel streams had the date incorrectly displayed.
  • Resetting tweets to retrieve bug Fixed bug where on an upgrade the number of tweets to retrieve would reset to 60.
  • Highlight color in Midnight Theme bubble layout The highlight color in the Midnight theme when using the bubble layout is now much easier to discern.
  • Text Ad color We changed the color of the text ads to conform to the them colors. The ads are still clearly marked as an advertisement.
  • GPS Radio Activation The GPS radio will now only be activated when you open the compose tweet screen IF you have selected to use the GPS radio to determine location. This should greatly reduce battery drain, but may result in the location mechanism falling back to the cell tower method on some occassions.
