TwimGo v3.3 for Nokia N900 (Twitter API 1.1 fix)

Twitter deprecated their first API version which TwimGo was using earlier. I spent this night to upgrade TwimGo to use new v1.1 API and compiled binaries to Maemo, Nokia N900. You can download TwimGo v3.3 for Maemo from here.

This version still might have some features that don’t work because of API changes. MeeGo version is coming hopefully tomorrow – if I can stay awake as long as I did today :)

Thank you for your patience!

TwimGo 3.2 Released

Main view with list of tweets.

It has been several months since the previous TwimGo update. Now as I was having a summer vacation I had more spare time on my hands to work on this update. Latest news about Jolla also might have increased the motivation for Qt development as we may see next chapter in MeeGo book after all :)

With this TwimGo upate I streamlined the UI so that toolbar now stays in the bottom of the screen also in tweet details and profile views. Toolbar contains the common actions that was previously available as separate buttons.

I got frustrated with the previous Read It Later support because it displayed the web page that wasn’t really required step. Now I switched to use official Pocket (old Read It Later) REST API so that it adds the link to your account instantly. Pocket credentials can be entered in Settings screen.

Tweet details view showing preview image for Instagram photos. Also showing new toolbar with common actions.

Some of people that I follow tend to post photos from Instagram and I got tired of jumping to Instagram page to see the photo so I added a preview functionality also for Instagram photos in addition to existing TwitPic and yFrog links.

Full release notes for v3.2 listed here:

  • IMPROVEMENT: Added proper Pocket (Read It Later) support which adds link to your Pocket reading list instantly without clunky web page phase
  • NEW: You can save your search
  • NEW: Remove existing saved searches
  • NEW: Show preview of Instagram photos
  • NEW: Translate tweet to english – Yes, it always generates quite funny translations since people don’t tend to use good grammar in 140 characters :)
    • FIX: No more 401 access denied errors (At least I haven’t had those in a week with this version :)

You can download the release binaries (MeeGo, Nokia N9 and Maemo, Nokia N900) from Nokia Project page:

MeeGo: twimgo_3.2.0_armel.deb

Maemo: twimgo_3_2_0_armel.deb

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the Remote Compiler to work in Qt Creator so I haven’t yet been able to compile versions for Symbian. I’m not able to authenticate via Qt Creator so that Remote Compiler would get active. This might be because of the recent changes in Nokia Developer site switching to single Nokia account for all of their services (which is nice). Hopefully that is sorted soon so I can build Symbian Belle binaries.сондажи за водаsondajiсондажи

TwimGo with Read it Later support (N9/N950)

Update: Maemo and Symbian binaries are now also available for download!

Few months have passed since the last releases. We are starting to build a house so that project will take some of my spare time every now and then.

During the last few days I have coded TwimGo v3.0.9 which includes something new: Read it Later support, which makes it easy to store interesting links so that you can read them later for example with another device. It works like this:

  1. Open tweet which includes interesting link
  2. Click “Read it Later…”
  3. Read it Later opens in browser and you can add tags if you want
  4. Press “Save”

 

There are also few other fixes and improvements in TwimGo 3.0.9:

  • Read it Later support – You can now easily add interesting links to your Read it Later list so you can read them on better time with your computer or tablet
  • Translations – There are now few translation like Turkey, Finnish, Italian and Swedish
  • Slightly larger profile picture in profile view – Requested in issue #46
  • Loading indicator is now using platform style busy indicator from Qt Quick Components
  • Location sharing fixed on N9 and N950

Download binary to your N9 and N950 from: https://projects.developer.nokia.com/twimgo

I’ll post Symbian and Maemo binaries soon too.

Kasvopus v1.2 – Facebook app’s new face

Toolbar extended to show two lines of icons.

Previous version of Kasvopus used the toolbar menu which was located in the top of the screen. In the long run I felt it was rather painful to use since if you hold your phone with one hand in portrait mode it’s quite hard to press any buttons that are on top of the screen.

With this release of Kasvopus I moved the menu items from top to bottom and removed the whole top bar. Now most of the shortcuts are always visible, Home, Friends, Profile and Status. When you press “More” icon the toolbar slides upwards and reveals second line of icons. This feels much better to use compared to previous version.

The v1.2 also includes the following:

  • Pull down to refresh home feed
  • Scroll down will trigger “load more” automatically
  • No more 403 errors when commenting statuses
  • App icon should work better on Symbian devices
