New features in Twinkle 4.0

Version 4.0 of Twinkle has been released in BlackBerry AppWorld. This new version adds synchronization with existing calendars, improved sharing over BBM, and an alternate order for displaying events.

About Twinkle

Twinkle is an app that allows you to set and keep track of upcoming and past events. Twinkle will tell you how far away an event is, and share it with a friends through BBM, Facebook, and Twitter. Additionally Twinkle offers full integration with the native calendar, allowing you to either synchronize events, or to import/export them from one to another. You can also import your friend’s birthdays from the contacts app.

New: Calendar Synchronization

Version 4.0 of Twinkle offers a new page to allow you to synchronize an existing calendar with Twinkle. This can be done on a per calendar basis, and allows you the option to exclude previous events. Changes are synced across the apps, and will automatically be removed if the calendar is unsynched.

New: Improved BBM Sharing

Twinkle has allowed events to be shared over BBM since version 3.0 of the app. However in the newest version of Twinkle you can now share events with your BBM friends even if they don’t yet have Twinkle installed on their device. Users of BB7 devices can also post events to Facebook and Twitter.

New: Closest First Sorting

By default Twinkle orders events by placing events in chronological order. However if you don’t like to delete past events (or set them to automatically expire) the top events would have all taken place in the distant past. Version 4.0 offers the option of a “Closest First” sort order where events are sorted based on their proximity to the current date. This way the events on the top of the screen are always the most relevant ones.
