Good app. I have a felling this was supposed to be out years ago but someone at Palm refused to bundle it. Glad to see it is out.

Any idea what the 'POLL' button does in the bottom right hand corner? Background mode?

Enable "Poll" and leave the app. It will notify you about new tweets.

A nice app. And for only $5. I registered it 10 mins after installing it. Works great here.

Heh. there's more than a bit of truth to that.

for me, twitter's been a great blogging tool. updates come in faster than RSS, and a more easily digestable format and since most sites have a Twitter feed now it's my default for news.

plus, with TweetDeck I can have multiple columns that track various Palm search terms in real-time. it's an excellent way to find news that otherwise would slip under the radar - our post on Playbite today is a good example. saw it on twitter first.

I have a feeling this is why the tech press love it so much. as a "social network", Facebook is infinitely superior.

You nailed it. All of the press absolutely loves Twitter because it fits their schizophrenic personality to a tee. All headlines, no substance, no meaning.

Unfortunately, nobody else cares. Facebook gets many people laid (in tandem with alcohol). Until Twitter can lay claim to that, it'll be stuck as a method for bored teenagers to comment on CNN broadcasts. Snore.

Small Font

Les_Vegas @ 9/16/2009 12:47:43 PM # Q
everything works great but I'm not feeling the font size(too small)... m.twitter.com is still the best way to use twitter
RE: Small Font

I hope they can fix the small font issue for Palm Centro soon.

Besides m.twitter.com, you can also consider to use an IM client, which can provide background push notifications and other goodies.

RE: Small Font (FontSmoother workaround)
FlaSheridn @ 10/9/2009 8:06:49 AM # Q
Agreed, lovely app, unreadable design; but I managed to read some tweets by setting the font to Lo Res and then telling FontSmoother to substitute the biggest font I could find. I also tend to read tweets by displaying the full text of one, and then using the five-way to scroll up or down through the list.
