spaz-palm-preMy daily check of the Palm Pre App Catalog didn’t turn up any new software, but there is a notable update today. I’ve been using the Tweed Twitter client, but for now I’m switching over to Spaz. The latest update, version 0.5, adds support for photo posting to TweetPhoto, yfrog, Twitgoo and TwitPic.

I tested the new function, and it worked fine, although it’s not exactly a native feature within the client. Instead, Spaz relies on sending an email to the Twitter photo services: Your text appears as the tweet, while the attached photo receives its own URL. I’d prefer a solution that works within the actual client, but the Pre’s easy-to-use multitasking allows this approach to work effectively.

    I’m sorry, they called the product Spaz?! not sure if that has the same meaning in America…

      Really? What version(s) have you seen it in?

      The developers site has an update on their blog today saying: “photo integration (via auto generated email) — this week” As of now, I see no photo integration in Tweed although we should see it shortly.

  3. I just saved the url for my twitpic as an sms contact and send the pictures that way. Much easier thwn using an email client since the PRE has mms included.

  4. how is the pre holding up? I liked tweed, but twitter clients in general are plentiful and feature rich on the iphone. I ultimately gave the pre up because of poor coverage in my area.

  5. That name is sooooo dodgy.

    Love the name but what does Spaz have to do with Twitter photos and Palm Pre?

  7. Just wanted to say hello to all here. This is my 1st message here.

    It certainly seems the owners of the group sure are doing a wonderful job.

    I anticipate to find some good of stuff here also I will help other people as much as I can.
