Twixtreme - A Underrated Twitter Client

During September 2009, I was searching the internet with Google about alternatives to quench my addición with Twitter, but I had a problem at that time had a Blackberry Curve 8330.. I also had two free alternatives that already had been used at the time.
  1. TwitterBerrynot a bad application and was obviously created to match perfectly with the Blackberry, erm sorry, been attempted, because the 2 versions I had (the last one before you change the name and before) always had the problem I warning light lit and from the phone to vibrate at random times. She also became tedious to not update the stream and sometimes my Logear differences were easily 5 to 6 hours and not get me wrong, I love to read the tweets of my friends but it became tedious to read things that had happened and that the program maxime encouraged the more ascended to the most recent.
  2. ÜberTwitter – actually I thought my search was over, but something I never liked is that the makers of UT have a private server on which nobody has access and did not like that every time he took out picture, the picture stays on that server until the end of time. The worst thing you could do is make the program a free version Adware Adware and had to pay. I don't have any problems they want to do and make money from their sweat, but I feel like my phone that will spread of cookies and temporary files that are used to record commercials and I've had problems with programs that have advertising applications of "Partners" business ...
 I was about to give up, when by chance I found a blog talking about a Twitter client that does not suck (A Twitter Client That Does not Suck).  When I saw it, I began to have puppy's eyes to see that if a client was designed by the company Blackberry Xtreme Labs called Twixtreme. Not only am I glad it was free, I loved that did not have ads or anything like that and everything seems indicate that this will be their winning formula.

Without further ado, let's talk about what we offer:
\ First of all, responding to my complaints from TwitterBerry, Twixtreme, is quite fast in its interface. The speed of recording and extracting tweets of your account is quite fast, even with people who use Blackberry with EDGE signal (* cough, cough ... .*).
  Apart from the rapid connection, you have the option to update your own tweets stream or the program do it automatically.
Solving my photos ÜberTwitter complaint, and that a couple of people will like is that Twixtreme and tune your account Twitpic, which means you control directly your photos.
Creating Tweets is another cool little walk well. Apart from Tweets and see your friends' Twixtreme lets you see the latest trends and also look into Twitter, Mark favorite, ReTweet and see answers and references.  I must admit that if I started using it, noticed that the graph of the blue bird, can be a bit annoying at first, but my saying that if it does not, then something bad happens.
Why is the title of the article is well then?
  Answer: Even so with the advantages of Twixtreme note, it seems that people are resisting the possibility ÜberTwitter's reign began to crumble when they decided to put Adware and there are many contenders for the kingship. Some people are complaints to the program and I say it is people coming Multi-Client Networks. I do not like the Multi-Networks, I say that the more you use a self-service (Example: Facebook -> Facebook For Blackberry) better enjoy it. Twixtreme why I say that will keep singing.

From your Blackberry
 The page will recognize your OS and where it says Download Now, will give you the best compatible version, but it is advisable that you have the Blackberry to date.

So, it is 2010 already?!

Happy Holidays!!

Whatever happened this few weeks
Just been dealing with current troubles that I got but, it has been quite a good days I had and I really had a great December in overall

Update from the NY trip video
I officially named the video "Whenever We Roam - a class C video log". Class C for obvious reason, a cheap quality video with really easy-to-tell edition done with real inexperience, but hey, that's part of the fun. The current status is that I am testing a few methods on having a photo slide included in the video and that had been taking quite a long time as also I have a worker life and a social life which also kills free time. I am not promising anything because I don't like to make empty promises but I think you can expect it by the end of this month posted in my Youtube and Facebook account respectively.

Triple Celebration This December
1st Celebration....Christmas and New Year Eve.....

2nd Celebration... My niece 1st birthday

I still remember that faithful Sunday , December 28th, 2008. I was....naturally asleep by 9AM. Suddenly I received a call from my (paternal) grandmother, asking me how I was and what I was doing. I replied, "Just about to wake up". Then she replied that I should head for the Presbyterian Hospital now that Arlyn was in labor. I was at that moment like "Time Already?!?". I spent like 15 minutes looking at for a specific map that really takes me there with little problem. In fact, problems did happen and almost got lost in the track but finally I could arrive and my family and my sister-in-law family was already there, expecting the arrival to the world of Yianelis Marie Nieves Algarin. The time I spent with her within interval of this year are just awesome. Every day that passed, the more beautiful and more intelligent as well as more "I am me and things go my way or the highway". You can tell that she love to be carried around by just trying to get her on her seat or her bed, she starts to cry but with such feeling that you subdue in no time and you can see me carrying her again. She has so much energy and doing things that I was expecting her to do it at least after being 1 year old but she has astonish me and I am really hard to get real suprised. OH YEAH  I am a proud Uncle!!

3th Celebration...A year old in a relationship

At December 23th, 2009, marked officially my anniversary with my beloved Jessica Santiago Tapia. This has been a wonderful year sharing very loving moments and to me at least saying this it is deep. Many of my friends knows me as a hard-headed and sometimes ignorant in certain thing on love. But I confess now, that for her (and for me also) I had change some aspect of life that I got due to the hardship in my teenage years and early adulthood life. Jessica by this mean (you know already, but wanted to do it public), that I love you, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I give thanks that you crossed in my life and also I give thanks that after a few hardships and the ones to come, we overcome all and I think that really together is the key on having a good relationship, communication ad help each other by physically and emotional means. I am happy as being your boy friend and I hope that this feeling that I got for you is mutual, because the thing that I do and sometimes I had to endure like the distance for example, means that I am looking forward for both of us...I Love you my queen! <3

Karlo Benitez, Hilen Mayol, Frank Camacho, Gabriel Marquez, Chrystal Calendar Luis Gonzalez, Amarilis Malavé Jenesther Torres, Pablo Collazo and the rest of the crew, you know who you are... By this mean I want to tell you that thank you for a great 2009 of good moments and priceless time. As I am writing and I meant it that I miss you all this few days beside of work I had felt a little lonely in friendship department. Also if by any means I had done something that I still haven't apologize due to my stupidity, etc. I humble say I am sorry and hope this will not taint the good friendship.   But nevertheless I know that this 2010 will come with new adventures, and also craziness from us, if not, then I bring the craziness, AND BY GOD YOU KNOW I WILL!!  LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU ALL
