Updated LinkedIn and Twitter apps come to BlackBerry 10
BlackBerry Z10 owners rejoice! Updated LinkedIn and Twitter apps for BB 10 are now available, touting new features and improvements over previous iterations. The update promises to improve the social experience on BlackBerry's latest mobile operating system with "an enhanced tweeting experience and helpful business tools", according to the Canadian device maker.
Let's take them one by one. The LinkedIn app, which has seen the least number of improvements and new features of the two, now allows users to view LinkedIn profiles in full screen mode, search, view and save recommended jobs, chat with connections through LinkedIn Messages and filter news by industries through LinkedIn Today.
Twitter went through a more significant overhaul compared to LinkedIn. Users now have access to an improved compose tweet screen that comes with location support, a shortcut for the "@" sign and provides the ability to add pics either by snapping a new one or choosing an existing one.
Users can send direct messages from the "Me" tab, edit the profile picture, header and details, view a complete conversation history after tapping on a tweet and delete their own tweets. Other features include the ability to block and report other users as spam, display full screen images, quote tweets after selecting "Retweet" and open the tweet's details page.
