Default Facebook/Twitter Updates

Facebook and Twitter get rotating keyboards. But the browser doesn't? Madness!

I do hope they add it to the browser. I mean, now they've shown it's possible. It'll probably make an appearance with the next firmware update though.

what they really need to do is allow the twitter app to start at the oldest new post first...right now you if a few people have a twitter conversation, you get to read it backwards, unless I am missing something completely obvious

That would be a nice feature. But even twitter doesn't do that.

As does TweetMe on webOS. Well, when you select a tweet, TweetMe has a "Tweet Conversation" button that shows the replies in the thread.

I've also noticed some improvement in scroll speed/image rendering, as well has horizontal scrolling. Anyone else notice that?

It would be nice if the keyboard could do the same thing in the Music UI (i.e. typing the name of a playlist or something).

As far as I recall, the new update allows the keybaord to actually rotate (IE, switch from portrait to landscape while up). The browser's keyboard will work in either portrait or landscape, but will not rotate while called up. It's an annoyance that needs to be fixed.

Just finished downloading the update. Had to uninstall and re-download to confirm something. My options screen within the app is messed up, but oh well, don't use it that often anyway.

As far as the keyboard, it rotates nicely. They really should build that into the browser on the next firmware update. I get the impression that they intend to.

EDIT: I was referring specifically to the Facebook app. I don't have a twitter account.
