New Twitter 2.0 for fring

Hey guys

In line with your feedback and the phenomenal explosion of Twitter, we’ve just released an all new Twitter 2.0 Add-on for fring, with stacks of new features to excite your fingers and thumbs even more.

You can view other Twitter profiles, check-out your own followers and see who’s following you.

A new keyword search enables you to keep on top of a particular topic, and with our cool new look and feel and you can also open links like Tiny URL’s in your incoming Tweets.

Finally, something that loads of you have asked for, you can switch-off the beep sound when you receive Tweets, so it will just Twitter away silently without interrupting you every couple of seconds.

There are two ways to get your hands on the new Twitter 2.0 Add-on…  If you have a Windows Mobile, just go to the Add-ons tab inside fring, unsubscribe from the old Twitter & re-subscribe to the new Add-on. And if you’re a Symbian handset owner, simply download the new fring version 3.37 first, unsubscribe from the old Twitter & re-subscribe to the new Add-on.

And there’s more…fring has also released the source code to the new Twitter 2.0 Add-on, and additional add-ons.  Now, the web develop community can see fring API in action,  re-use the code and mashup  their own social experiences with fring.

For fring’s latest news, please follow us on Twitter.

Happy Tweeting and as always, let us know what you think!


Digg it.

    Well I tried to download the update, and all appeared to go well, I unsubscribed, but download froze. I closed fringe, reopened it, but then there was no notification of the new version to download within the application?

    Will download the standalone client, and fire it across to my N95-2 via BT, and update that way.

    Great issue: when restart Fring, the Twitter add-on shows this notification: User not found. Re-subscribe please.

    Nice add-on. The no beep feature is especially helpful. We’ll see how it catches on.

    Great work, guys! But there is one drawback: On my 20-key suretype touch dual WinMo device text input doesn’t work with the hardware keyboard anymore. The old’n'boring add-on did a good job on this issue – so please please please re-introduce support for hardware keyboards.

    Best regards!

    Please look into it and help us out


  21. on 31 Mar 2009 at 5:06 pm 21.Staska said …

    I may be missing something, but Twitter add-on on this update is pretty much unusable if you follow a lot of people.

    At least “View all tweets” part.

    The picture and name of the person take so much space that I can not see the text of the tweet itself until it starts too scroll on my Nokia N95 screen. So it takes about 10-15 seconds to view a single tweet, which makes it impossible to scan many of them quickly

    I am using Fring 3.37 (the latest version) and I am trying to subscribe to Twitter 2.0, but it just wont subscribe !! Tried it many times.

    Also, I tried subscribing to tritter (old version) – same problem, won’t register.

    Otherwise Fring is working perfectly fine.
    So.. whats wrong ????


  36. on 05 May 2009 at 10:51 pm 36.Andy Salt said …

    Just tried out Twitter 2.0 on Nokia E61.
    Looks nice, but each time a tweet arrives, I have to press the notification to get the screen to update and display the tweet. That should be automatic.
    I really liked the old format, which gave me a better view of the tweets. The new format limits the amount of information I can see at one time :(
    I suggest a hybrid, which allows you to follow links and do searches, but with the old text format :)

    I cant type in the username and password in twitter 2.0-app. (using a htc diamond2).

    Anyone know whatswrong? (the text shows up, but the fields are nowwhere to be found- alas nowhere to type). have tried clicking around without luck..

    Hello, Thank you so much for creating such a great application for mobile phone! I just installed Fring 3.7.2 today (first time on my N95). It works great with twitter though I have to select “View new tweets” every time I hear the notification tone.

    My problem is the notification tone is so loud and I am unable to change it. The current “tweet” chirping sound is the only thing that plays when new msg/tweet comes in. I changed “Fringtone” in setting but it won’t work. I used “Normal” profile on my Nokia N95 8GB before but I created a new profile called “General” according to fring requirement, still, the new tones and vibration don’t work.

    I am stuck with eh chirping tweet sound notification at the moment. Is there any other way to change this?


    omri Reply:

    you can disable the tweet sound from “my profile” page on the twitter 2.0 add-on.


    Barb Reply:

    Hi omri,
    Thank you so much for your quick response! :) I turned the beep off from twitter profile now, whew! it works!

    However, I’m wondering if I can still get notification tone when twitter arrives or a vibration. Right now, once I turned off the “beep” from twitter profile, I don’t get notified anymore when new tweet arrives…


  43. on 24 May 2009 at 4:07 am 43.Barb said …

    Hi Again :) Is there a way to change the Twitter “Beep” tone? (it’s too loud) I’m using Nokia N95. Thank you!!!

    Getting better but …

    1. have a toggle option to include or not include twitter avatars. they take up too much screen space, download time, and are redundant if we have the username right there. make it selectable.

    2. design the tweets for screen space, include more of the tweet to be visible, don’t scroll it horizontal, takes too long to view several tweets, better to scroll vertical among the tweets, and give us more to see right away, say 80 characters of the tweet so we can tell if we want to view more

    3. when you select a tweet to view, if we press the down navigation after viewing the tweet, this should load the next tweet in chronological order from all tweets. don’t make us have to go back to view all tweets and then select the next one. waste of time.

    4. this update is so much better than regular twitter add-on. we really dont need to see “fring-twitter” in front of each tweet!!! we know we are in twitter, and we know we are using fring, thankyou! talk about a waste of space and redundancy.

    5. more on vertical vs. horizontal design. look, line up your info like you have:

    twitter username
    tweet time – then a the first 80 characters word-wrapped
    next twitter username
    tweet time – 80 chars word-wrapped etc.

    we can then select a tweet to view whole tweet, dont need to wait for horizontal scroll, and get enough from the 80 chars to know whether to move on.

    you could even make it selectable as to whether we get the full 140 chars on all tweets downloaded as they come, no horizontal scrolling though !!!!!!!!!!!

    Since the attack on twitter a few days ago Twitter had to limit the access of 3rd party apps (like ours)
    As we see it now it is not stable although it was working just fine in the last few hours.

    Let’s just wait for Twitter to be stable again.

    I´m receiving the message “Twitter web service is not responding. Please, try again later”. Any problem with the connection or the web site ? All other features are working on fring, even the Twitter (chat only), if I activate it.
