DestroyTwitter is a Twitter client built to run on Mac, Windows, and Linux using Adobe AIR. It is completely free (although you can donate to support it) and is by far the best desktop client i have found for Twitter.
It supports theming, and there a large number of themes already available for download.
All the usual features are there, including:
- Reply to tweets
- ReTweet tweets
- See your replies, sent and direct messages
- Save tweets
- Search twitter
It is a brilliant twitter client and i definitely recommend it to anyone who is hooked on twitter and needs to get their ‘fix’ all the time! (and anyone else who uses twitter!)
Twibble is a mobile client for Twitter. It works on most (if not all) Java enabled smartphones including Nokia, Blackberry, and Sony Ericsson.
It has all of the standard features from a twitter client including:
- posting tweets via wifi, gprs, sms
- auto refresh
- send photos to twitpic (new beta version uploads to Mobypicture.com
- re-tweet (forward) of tweets
It is (so far) the best free twitter client for my N95. There are other alternatives that are a bit more polished but they are not free, and twibble still seems to be the best. The beta version adds support for showing avatars and uses less memory (amongst other things).
Go check it out!
As you can probably tell from the title of this post Joshua Radin played the Birmingham Academy 2 a couple of days ago. It was absolutely fantastic, and was made even better by the fact i got to meet him after the show.
Support was from Maria Taylor who was very good too.

Recently Microsoft allowed POP3 access to all hotmail accounts (certain countries at the moment, more will follow). This means that it is now possible to check your emails with the built in email account on the n95 (and other phones).
To set it up go to your Messaging application and scroll down to the Mailbox. If you haven’t already created one it will ask you to go through the wizard. Below are the settings you need:
Incoming Mail Server: pop3.live.com
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.live.com
And obviously a hotmail account!
Once you have completed the wizard you will need to change a couple more settings. If you go into “Email Settings” -> “Connection Settings” -> “Incoming Email” you need to make sure you have the following:
Security (ports): SSL/TLS
Do the same for “Outgoing Email”, and you should be able to view your emails from the main screen by going “Retrieve Email”, then selecting how many to get (New/Selected/All).
If you want to set it up to automatically check your emails you need to make sure you have entered your email address (in full) and password in the incoming and outgoing email settings (the same place as above). Be warned, this may result in a lot of GRPS/data/wifi use so don’t enable this if you are not on an unlimited tariff.
To enable automatic checking go to “Email Settings” -> “Automatic Retrieval” and set “Email Retrieval” to Enabled. Set when and how often you want it to check and you’re all done.
I hope this helps.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
