twitter application for PalmOS

twitter is one of the internet hype nowadays. I, as one of twitter user and PalmOS user, wondering is there any twitter API application that works on my Treo650.

After searching, I found one a real native PalmOS application for twitter. But unfortunately the application is not suit my need for twittering. That application is only able to update the status, without any other functionality.

Then later, I found another twitter application which is based on Java. The name is twittai. completely fulfilled my requirement of what twitter application should be.
twittai, could update, reply, retweet, save as favorite, direct message, etc.

So far, twittai is the only java application for twitter that can works on IBM Java VM for PalmOS. other twitter Java application failed because the IBM Java VM lack of support on detail display.

If you want to use it, make sure you have IBM Java VM installed on your treo650 or your PalmOS device. then goto from your blazer browser. then download it, and ready to use.

tips: bypass keyguard

When you set-up the keyguard on your treo 650, it will lock your phone after it goes to sleep - depend on the setting on the preference - to avoid any accidental keyboard pressed.

but when you wake the phone up, the lock still active, and you need to press the center of the d-pad to activate it.

so it need two step for the treo to be function normal, first waking it up by pressing the red phone button, then pressing the central button of d-pad.

btw, there's a shortcut for it, so you only need one step to wake your treo up.
it's done by pressing the alt button (the blue button) with the red phone button.
your treo 650 will instantly active.
