HootBerry? Hootsuite Twitter client for BlackBerry on its way

by Rob Lewis

This week has been a big one for Vancouver's HootSuite with a Social CRM release for their web client but they didn't stop there and they seem to have something for everyone.

To go along with Apple’s release of the iPhone 4, HootSuite has updated an iOS4-ready version of HootSuite for iPhone with a number of new features to help you keep on top of the social media game. Their recent round of updates also includes the addition of location-based social game Foursquare, customizable re-sizing of fonts for easy reading, and updates to iPhone’s iOS4 to allow app switching and performance tweaks. Plus a basket full of preference goodies from RT-style choice to custom avatar sizes.

For those BlackBerry users out there that have been clamouring for a HootSuite App for your RIM device, your wait may be over soon. The bottom of HootSuite's update newsletter this week mentions that a beta release is around the corner.  To get on-board for early access, simply sign up online and you'll be among the first to try the new tool.
