Orangatame Software is a relatively new BlackBerry application software development group. Their only creation so far is TwitterBerry, and they are off to a great start. TwitterBerry incorporates many of the functions of Twitter, but uses your BlackBerry's data connection instead of SMS text or Instant Messaging. Although I have unlimited texts, I still prefer the great TwitterBerry interface. It integrates really well with the BlackBerry OS.

The app will save your username and password so that you never have to take the time to login again.

Some of the features include:
  • Send status updates
  • See a list of your updates
  • View a timeline of your friends' tweets
  • View Public Timeline
  • Send Direct Messages, view your Direct Message inbox, view sent messages
  • 'r' Reply and 'd' Direct Message support
  • Displays user icons
  • Picture support through
  • Favorite and Delete tweets from any timeline
  • Configurable Automatic Update (Manual, 1, 5, 10, 30, 60, or 120 minutes)
  • URLs in tweets can be selected and opened in your BlackBerry Browser
  • Auto-Detect Connection Mode, or Manual (BES, BIBS, TCP)
  • FREE!
I use the program myself and have to say I love it (Follow me on Twitter here - you'll get the site updates as well!). It is incredibly user-friendly and reliable. My personal experience has been on a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and BlackBerry Bold 9000. It doesn't seem to drain the battery any extra either, which is a huge plus.

So, after you have found the perfect Blackberry for you, be sure to download Orangatame's free TwitterBerry app here OTA directly from your BlackBerry Browswer. It is currently in version 0.8.

Nearly any BlackBerry model is supported, but you need to have BlackBerry OS 4.1.0+ (BlackBerry OS 4.2+ for TwitPic support). And if you're not using Twitter yet, start!
