Twitter updates iOS app following mass hysteria over ‘Quick Bar’

Twitter on Tuesday issued another update to its iOS application following an outpouring of public disgust with the app’s new “Quick Bar” feature. Twitter 3.3 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch was released just last week, and among its new features was a Quick Bar that the Twitter team seemed quite excited about. The feature placed a semiopaque banner that hung over the top of users’ main Twitter timelines and displayed a combination of ads and trends. Users were not impressed. In fact, they almost unanimously seemed to loathe the new feature, and many were quite vocal with their feelings on the matter. Thankfully, Twitter was quick to react — version 3.3.1 of the iOS app pins the Quick Bar to the top of the timeline and prevents it from obstructing tweets. For those of you who haven’t already defected, the new version is available immediately in the App Store. More →

Google Maps gets updated to version 3.3 for Windows Mobile and Symbian

Windows Mobile and Symbian users don’t ever have to worry about getting lost or having to remember their favorite places again. Google recently announced that Google Maps has been upgraded to version 3.3 for Windows Mobile and Symbian. The upgrade now allows you mark your favorite items with a star and keep those synced between your computer and phone. As soon as you upgrade on your WinMo or Symbian device, Google will ask if you want those starred items synchronized between your phone and Google Account. For those of you that rely on starred items in Google Maps, you’ll also be happy to know that you don’t have to go through each favorite spot individually on your phone. More →
