TwimGo – a new Qt based twitter client for Nokia N900

| September 20, 2010 | Reply

Just a quick heads-up of an interesting new twitter client that is being developed for Nokia N900. We all know how difficult the situation is with native twitter apps for N900 at the moment, so seeing new faces like TwimGo is definitely is exciting and worth checking out. The app utilizes the landscape screen of the N900 for easier overview of twitter time line with double columns and comes with a surprisingly deep set of features.

It certainly is a work in progress, as it lacks appearance customization options or a way to upload pics as far as I can tell. But, needless to say, the app already looks simply gorgeous and is  followed by smooth animations and scrolling, so  let’s hope TwimGo doesn’t stop here and keeps on growing!

Thanks to my  friend @lifenexus for bringing this wonderful app to my attention. He also explained how to install TwimGo in a few basic steps:

1. Download & install ‘qt web runtime’  from App manager ‘Maemo Extras Devel’ repository;

Catalogue name: Maemo Extras Devel
Web address:
Distribution: fremantle
Components: free non-free

2. Download & save the file to your N900 – – then open & install it using the N900 file manager;

3. Did it work?

There’re tons of little details that are easier and faster to show than explain with words, so feast your eyes on some of the TwimGo screenshots and let me know what you think:

Update: TwimGo does seem to support portrait mode as well, no virtual keyboard in this viewing mode though…
