Just a heads up for those keeping an eye on developments! With the April 15th deadline looming like a runaway freight train, there’s a few plans in the pipeline to help you get a little more out of Twitter In An App.
The application as it is, is perfectly usable as a replacement for the website. It has just enough basic bells and whistles to cover basic usage, but admittedly there’s still more to do!
On my TODO list are the following features:
- Implement the default notification sounds – the website actually seems to have these embedded [if you’re brave enough to look at the source code, there’s some media tags for the notification sound], but never plays them.
- Implement Custom CSS – a little more tricky this one, as I’d like to inject custom CSS to allow you ‘tweak’ the look and feel of the Twitter site as you see fit! [It’s proving harder than I thought it would!]
- Implement extended notifications – we all know the original TweetDeck popped up a notification box containing the content of the new items. I’d like to do something similar [but not the same!]
I do have a version now which extends the tray notifications a bit more, which I will consider releasing over the next few days. Unless someone really wants it sooner rather than later.
Got any more suggestions? Feel free to get in touch and let me know!
