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 like to get things done. Sometimes there are just too many things in your “inbox” so you’ll better write them down. If you follow something like Getting Things Done (GTD) method your to-do tool should support categories or hierarchies.
I’ve written few GTD apps before like Mobile Task Manager (Java ME) and TaskFlow (Widget) and now that I received my lovely Nokia N950 I had to make an app for that too and obvious technology was Qt Quick as that also gets things done :)
So, here is the first alpha version of the to-do / GTD app called MeeToDo. It currently has minimal set of features: Lists and tasks. User can add new tasks pretty fast and can mark them done with a single tap. There is also a “purge” features which I find handy e.g. doing grocery shopping.
I tried to follow the analog user interface of the best GTD tool, paper and pen. Main view shows user a page from notebook with list of task lists. When list is selected it jumps on the right hand page. When single task is selected or added it animates a page flip and shows a task page.
I compiled it to Symbian^3, Maemo (Nokia N900) and MeeGo Harmattan (Nokia N950 and N9). Please test it out and let me know what you think of it?

I’ve used the “official” Foursquare widget on my Nokia N8 since it was launched but now that we are getting more and more Qt based apps it has started to feel a bit slow and clumsy compared to other apps.
I started to develop the Nelisquare app for my Nokia N900 since it doesn’t have many Foursquare clients but since I use my N8 every now and then I also compiled a version for that too.
