As promised, Blaq for BlackBerry 10 is now available to download for an “introductory” price of $2.99. The Twitter application, which became one of the most popular PlayBook apps when it was released in 2011, has been completely redesigned for the Z10 and Q10.

One of the biggest advantages over the stock BlackBerry 10 Twitter app is multi-account support, allowing community managers and power users to follow all the action. The app support real-time streaming through Twitter’s firehose API, so updates happen in realtime over WiFi. There’s also active frame support so you’ll see mentions and tweets even when outside of the app, and Blaq promises to sip battery while in the background.

Another advantage over the stock Twitter client is a gesture-based workflow that feels more intuitive and altogether smoother.

At $2.99, the app is priced right under the psychological barrier to many mobile purchases, but the improved experience should be worth the investment.

    I would say that price is too high. On WP, iOS and Android, there are many really good Twitter clients for 99 cents or free.

    I wouldn’t pay for a twitter app when you can use the webpage for free… And the Twitter app if such thing exist on the BB10 market. I don’t know, I never seen a BB10 device except on a showfloor.

      An official twitter app does exist on BB10 and I do agree most people wouldn’t pay for it when there is a free version already available. The only reason I bought it on my Playbook is that there isn’t any other Twitter client available.

      I purchased Blaq for my PlayBook long ago, then I sideloaded the Android version of Twitter. I use the Android one exclusively now and only look at Blaq after a version update.

    i never saw the appeal of using twitter for the general masses anyway. Price is right for those who actually need twitter, such as businesses and celebs.
