The sign in page looks great, to bad when I press sign in nothing happens so I can't get a pin number. Am I the only one with this problem?

Man, you are not alone.

Hi veskuh, last release 2.0.0 is great, well done!

Do you know if the "conversation" function could be implemented?

damourti's picture


thanks for this app. I find the User Information page difficult to access. Especially to check for favorites or followers and so on. Could it be at tab?

veskuh's picture

Thanks. Yes, I think changing it into main level tab would make sense. I opened this issue to track:

There is a bugs with scrolling, sonetimes when scroll down or up, it become swipe left or right

veskuh's picture

Known issue:


I think I now have found a workaround for this and will finally be able to fix it in the next update.

TMavica's picture

also can u add a option in other user profile - tweet@xyz in pulley menu?

tonyk's picture

Thanks for the time format fix. Should have asked for it already on N9. 

You also added the "Keep the timeline" option. Nice!!!

Seriously this apps rocks, beautifull and ergonomically designed! The only thing that miss me, is the memorisation of the position on the timeline. With that feature it will be easiest to read the tweets missed after a refresh or when the apps was switched off.

tonyk's picture

Tweetian rocks! But there are two things I miss. A possibility to change what web-browser you use, when pressing on a link. And I really would like an option to change the time format used on the timestamp for older tweets. am/pm is ancient stuff.

nodevel's picture

Thanks! I have noticed one thing, though - Tweetian has the 'Refresh' cover option on the left while official Jolla apps (Browser, E-mail) have it on the right. Could you switch them, so it matches the official apps?

veskuh's picture

Good idea. Will do.

Tweetian has been translated on Transifex. Do you plan to use that repository ?

veskuh's picture

The translations that are in Tweetian upstream are utilized, but we have had to add few new strings since some functionality that was behind icon is now behind pulley menu. So currently the UI is a mix of localized and non-localized content.

The plan for how to do localization is not yet decided. Opened issue to track this:

On Transifex 14 languages are at 100%, the other 14 were progressing nicely. I hope that you can migrate to Transifex.
