Tweed 0.9.16: connection improvements

September 17, 2009 Christian Sepulveda

0.9.16 of Tweed is now available in the App Catalog.

Changes:

  • loading spinner/scrim has been replaced with spinner/cancel button (like web browser app)
  • Tweed will auto-retry connecting to Twitter on failure response from Twitter API (this has been recently causing Tweed to hang))
  • option to cancel active request by tapping cancel button; tapping refresh will retry (instead of having to re-select timeline from nav menu)
  • shake for retry and refresh

Shake

We’ve added support for the accelerometer shake events. If you shake your phone while on a timeline:

  • if loading (Twitter is taking a long time), this will force a retry
  • if no active loading, then refreshes (same as hitting refresh button)

So, you could always force a retry by tapping cancel, then refresh, but we figure you can vent some frustration by shaking the phone. Tweed
