The Symbian S60 Twitter client Gravity turned 1 today - and we’re looking back to an exciting year since it’s first release on March 30th, 2009.
Without user participation, Gravity wouldn’t be what it is today
Gravity received an incredible amount of feedback and praise from users all around the world.
It has been used when presenting the Nokia N97 at the Wall Street Journal’s All Things Digital conference with Walt Mossberg and Nokia’s CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo. It has been mentioned in various keynotes and won many user surveys. There was even a TV commercial featuring Gravity.
Starting with a very limited set of features for Twitter, Gravity now has become a fully integrated social networking client with additional support for Foursquare, Google Reader and Facebook.
This has been a joint effort mainly driven by the overwhelming user feedback. Users are constantly testing Gravity and most importantly requesting new features or even asking for integration of new services.
Symbian - Platform of Choice for Gravity
Gravity has set a new standard for S60 applications. It has proven that the Symbian platform can deliver a fresh user interface with a user experience that’s not falling behind the iPhone UI.
It has also shown that it’s possible to create a benchmark application with limited resources and at the same time establish a sustainable business on the Symbian platform.
2010 will be an even more exciting year for Gravity
Gravity will be continuously improved throughout the following months. Along with the internal & necessary changes to support Twitter OAuth and the upcoming Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 platform, Gravity will see more features for Facebook and Foursquare as well as the addition of other promising services like Plancast.
