If you have used TwimGo recently you might have noticed that direct messages (DM) section doesn’t work anymore on the app since Twitter dropped the support for xAuth protocol which TwimGo was using. Direct messages are now only available when OAuth 1.0 is used for user authentication.
This isn’t the first time Twitter is making huge breaking changes in their API: last summer they dropped the basic HTTP authentication support which forced developers either to jump to OAuth or a bit easier xAuth protocols.
I also made a bit smaller improvements and changes in this release:
I’ve been converting the TwimGo application to Qt Quick from the beginning of this year and now it’s starting to be in some shape. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles as the WRT version but it gets the job done. It’s still missing something like auto refresh and proper error handling.
If you’d like to help me out and test how it works on your phones, then download application to your Nokia N8 (with Qt 4.7) or Nokia N900 from TwimGo project site: https://projects.forum.nokia.com/twimgo. I’ll upload the source code there too after I clean it up a little.
If, or when, you find some bugs you could report those as new tickets to the project with this link. One nasty bug is that application doesn’t load images on N900 on some sessions. This might be Qt related bug, QTBUG-15004.
This is a first time when I’m using Forum Nokia Projects for hosting my applications. Let’s see how that works out :)
