N950 receives Twitter update; N9 app update coming soon? (Changelog incl.)

So earlier in the week, to my absolute surprise, my N950 beeped and gave me an app update for Twitter! I suspected this would be due to Twitter changing their API to version 1.1  last year and making 1.0 support end in the coming weeks. N9 is still not showing anything, but I imagine this is all just until the bugs in the update are fully ironed out. (Of course if you are desperate, you can add the N950 repo manually. Although I would suggest checking out Rocket, which completely replaces the stock app in every way!)


The official changelog can be seen below, although it wasn’t displayed in the app update page. (We have our ways in the community ;P )

Changes since 1.3.50:
* Cache clean up code updated, deletes tweets/users/images older than 5 days
* Twitter API 1.1
* Fixes: Cannot delete sent direct messages
* Fixes: Follower info is not correct
* Fixes: Unable to retrieve tweets info shown often
* Fixes: The followers cache is updated now when “follow” event comes from the streaming API and when the new list of followers is returned from the server
* Fixes: When logging in to Twitter “Unable to load Trending topic” is shown.

Let me know when your N9s start getting the update notification.

Hi! My name is Michael. Like the others, I'm also a Student, living here in Sydney. I have a real passion for the latest technology and I'm a real Nokia buff! My aim is to keep those of you, like myself, updated with the latest in what's going on in the Nokia World. Currently sporting N9 & Lumia 820, with other Nokia devices in my posession. Get in touch on Twitter via @MFaroTusino, Google Plus or even simply drop me an email at mike.mnb[at] or tips[at]

    That’s good news. It will certainly be pushed out to all N9 users after feedback from N950 users/developers.

    Twitter will be retiring api 1.0 and before that Twitter will have blackout tests, the first one is March 5.

  • StefanP

    Oh, they are preparing the N950 to be launched at MWC! 😉
    (Maybe a (re-)launch would be even profitable. At least I would buy one!)

    • Janne

      I know you are only kidding. 🙂 But for the sake of readers who might not be aware of all such things, I think this is just Nokia honoring their commitment to keep the devices updated for a period of time. Twitter blacking out certainly wouldn’t be kosher. They will continue such updates for Symbian and MeeGo now, even after feature updates have ceased (as they mostly have I’m wagering).

      • jiipee

        Too bad they do not support a lot of their own services.

        • Janne

          While I’d love for them to support more, I don’t recall them ceasing support for non-beta services on the N9 or Symbian. It is true that some beta programs have ceased, although that was also happening to some of those pre-WP too, as per normal Beta Labs routine.

          • nn

            What about the paid apps in China? That was also beta?

            I really don’t think you want to take the treatment of MeeGo as paragon of how Nokia is caring about its own products.

          • Jiipee

            Customer intimacy is not about what has been communicated technically. Technically Nokia is living up to their promise of continued support to some extent. There are still bugs in basic features such as calendar – although small – they should fix. They promised support until 2015, promoted it as highend device and priced it premium. In such case some extra effort should put in. It would not cost much to hire Futurice or Cloudberry to do some upgrades to the built in apps eg to unlock some existing features in Drive.

      • StefanP

        I doubt that we will see anything for the N9, although there was “long term” support promised. Wasn’t there even talk about a possible PR1.4? I remember “more than 2 years support” was promised. But who could do this?

    • Mike

      That would be awesome and install some hope for Nokia! They would regain trust and sell more devices.

    a stupid move from nokia, betrayer is always a betrayer

    • Zipa

      Providing updates is stupid? Better switch to Android then…

    • Muerte

      Nokia betrayed… Nokia?

      • Jokews

        ehhhhh Nikia betrayed own customers

        • shallow ocean shoal

          The Symbian cult certainly is tenacious!

          • Jokews

            just like market exactly

    • I went from Symbian to WP7 then N9 (and now WP8) and i don’t think Nokia betrayed me as a customer.
      I knew what i was getting with the N9, they made no secret that it wouldn’t be followed up with more devices.
      Nokia do a really good job of supporting devices, even years after their release. I was surprised how long new FW releases for the 5800 continued.

    I’m not holding my breath but it’ll be nice if they added CardDAV support for when Google stop using ActiveSync.

  • Hi there, There’s no doubt that your website may be having
    internet browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in
    Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, excellent website!
