BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) Drops Twitter Update Owing To User Complains

BlackBerry Ottawa

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) reflected on another disappointment when it terminated the latest update to the Twitter app for BlackBerry 10. The struggling Canadian handset maker is in a fix to turnaround the company, and has been delivering row of bad news from quite some time now.

Users complains, the reason for dropping the update

“Twitter version 10.2.2 has been removed from BlackBerry World due to user reported issues,” the company said in a blog post. “We are actively investigating and will provide an update here when Twitter 10.2.2 has been reposted.”

Recently in December, BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) launched the Version 10.2.2 of the Twitter app including various new features, like BBM connectivity, timeline photo previews, and better search and reply functions. However, the company has decided to withdraw the update following the user complaining about the loading issues and crashes, according to the blog site Mobile Syrup.

The Canadian company has asked the users to roll back to the earlier version 10.2.1 following the various instructions and step by step suggestions.

Drops Two new phones and live conference

It is not just the apps and upgraded versions that the company is pulling down. Recently, the beleaguered smart phone maker cancelled two new phones even before their launch following the below par sales and scrawny financial numbers. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the company decided upon cancelling the launch of two new devices to avoid the inventory risk.

The two cancelled phones were dubbed as Cafe and Kofi, which were apparently the low cost devices, according to the Wall Street journal citing a source. BlackBerry also cancelled its annual BlackBerry live conference following the weak financial results reporting a third quarter loss of $4.4 billion.  In the third quarter, the company recorded sales of 1.9 million smart phones, which is less than 3.7 million in the previous quarter.

The firm wished to host various small conferences instead of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) Live main conference. Apparently, the events would be more customized according to the people who will be present there to give more importance to particular business, developer and partner audience.
