The guys from fring have recently announced the release of a new Twitter 2.0 Add-on for their namesake application, given the fact that Twitter has become increasingly popular lately, and that their users seem to have requested such an update to be made. The new Twitter 2.0 for fring is announced to be available for mobile users who own a Windows Mobile or a Symbian-powered handset.
According to fring folks, there are some new features that come around with the new Add-on, which has been developed to enhance the user's experience while working with the application. Users will now be able to view other Twitter profiles, while also having the possibility to check on their followers and see who is following them.
Among the improvements that can be spotted with the Twitter 2.0 Add-on for fring, there is a new look of the app, along with new keyword search capabilities, allowing users to “keep on top of a particular topic.” At the same time, they will also be able to open links that have been included in their incoming Tweets. One more option that has been added is the possibility to turn off the beep sound played when tweets are received, which means that users can now tweet silently.
The guys from fring also announced that the source code to the new Twitter 2.0 Add-on had been released as well, as was that to additional add-ons. This move is meant to allow the web developer community to reuse the code and come up with their own features.
Those who already use fring on their Windows Mobile handset and would like to upgrade to the new Twitter 2.0 Add-on will only need to go to the Add-ons tab in fring, and un-subscribe from Twitter and re-subscribe to the new version. Symbian users will have to download the new fring version 3.37, available here, and then un-subscribe from the old Twitter and re-subscribe to the new 2.0 Add-on.
