There is an older version (1.2.18) in the PreCentral feed that has been thee for a long time under patrickc's name. I never installed it because I thought it was only for Touchpad based on the description.. I have no beta feeds on my phone currently, and it is still there.

I'm getting 1.2.27 in the standard preware feed...

The newest version 1.3.1 if you install the feed minego posted.... this is how it has been for quite a while now (newest version required custom feed), every so often they would push version to preware...

I have never seen minego (or anybody else) commit changes that have made the app unusable using his custom feed, it's just that, in the past Preware hasn't seen the changes or maybe even all versions that were committed to the custom feed.

Anyone of the devs feel free to correct me or clarify if I misspoke here, this is my memory from over a year of using the app and probably over a year of using the custom feed.

I was just wondering if it should be pulled from the precentral feed or if it will be updated there in the future. I was confused when I first opened this thread and saw that it was in a custom feed. If not, perhaps it should be clarified at the top of the thread or in the app description in the precentral feed.

Or maybe upload the new version to the PreCentral Homebrew Gallery to get the widest possible distribution. </nudge-nudge-wink-wink>

Thanks Matt, I added instructions to the first post... sorry for any confusion by my initial post

Patrick has pushed some of the more "stable" versions to the preware feed. I'll ask him to push the current version in a few days once we're feeling pretty comfortable with it.

I have no objection to putting it into the homebrew gallery as well. Our goal though is to get it into the app catalog soon.

Very nice twitter client. Thank you for all your efforts! WebOS ist still quite vital on my Pre2 and Pre3.

But one feature could make Project Macaw even more useful. I would prefer getting notifications w/o "dingdong". I can't find any option to switch notification "on", but notification sound "off". Do you think this could be added?

Thanks in advance!

These are the preferences screenshots from my Pre3:





Sadly, no "Alert", nor "Sound" options.

Uh, wait... Allright, it's Preware's 1.2.18 version. Will activate the minego.net feed later and update to 1.3.1.

Thanks a lot for the hint!

[Edit 10:07] Done. There we go. Muted. Now.


Thank you!

* Profile banners are displayed and a new layout has been made for Profile view.
* Tweet borders option added to Prefs to allow easier delineation between tweets.

Enjoy!

A new version (1.4.2) of Project Macaw is now in the Preware feed.

Update includes:
* Emoji inserted at cursor position (not just at end of tweet)
* Flag emoji working again
* First item in Lists, Searches and Retweets no longer hidden under header.
* Search/Trends panel now obeys top toolbar/tabs layout.
* "Send URL via DataJog" fixed and "Send link via DataJog" added.
* Twitter API 1.1 supported.
* Image upload service changed to twitpic (due to phnx photo server going down).
* Save/Delete of searches within app now possible.
* Save/Restore script included in package (find with InternalzPro and read ReadMe to install).
* plus several minor cosmetic and bugs fixed.

Enjoy,
Baldric and the Project Macaw Team (@_minego, @dkirker & @baldric555)

I'm trying to do searches, but it seems like all it does is run the top bar for a bit then just stops. Same thing when I tap trending hashtags. Was using the App Catalog version of phnx, then tried Project Macaw, but both seem to do the samething.

Am I doing something wrong, or something wrong with my account?

Pretty sure that this is part of the stupid switch to the 1.1 API. I've noticed that the official Twitter apps and mobile website do not do a "show all tweets" search, and Boid on Android fails. Osfoora seems to work, though. We'll have to look at the API and see what changed for this... It makes checking on my commute useless.... *sigh*

A new update has just been released - V1.4.4.

Update includes:
* Emoji placement now works on webOS 1.4.5 (was previously placing at head of tweet)
* "Fade BG" option added to Appearance Preferences on phone devices to allow for phnx style bg fades
* Change Tab Order should now work for everyone
* Can now send link to free and pro versions of ReadOnTouch
* Added "Send to Facebook" and "Send link to Facebook"
* Clicking on a twitpic thumb or link now loads webpage as large image is no longer available through this service
* Conversation icon shows on tweets in timelines if tweet is part of convo
* Preliminary support for Vine videos. Disabled by default as depending on the number of Vines in the timeline, the app may appear to have locked up while processing tweets (but is actually still working). Enable at your discretion in the Advanced preferences menu
* Updated bit.ly keys so link shortening now works again
* Added option to show thumbnails in timeline at full image/column width. Will not scale above 100% of width of original image. Note, if this option is enabled, thumbs will not appear in convo timelines.
* Added ability to use custom notification sounds
* Close button on new cards now closes the card on TP
* Bug fixed new-card views on touchpad to use full width
* Bug fixed profile view panel layout for touchpad.
* Updated search calls to API 1.1
*...plus other miscellaneous bug fixes and tweaks

Enjoy,
Baldric and the Project Macaw team (@_minego, @dkirker and @baldric555)
