Blaq is the best Twitter app for BlackBerry 10

This is the Twitter app you need to use on BlackBerry 10.

The official Twitter app that came pre-installed on your BlackBerry 10 device gets the job done, but it's missing a lot of features. Instead of waiting for Twitter to make improvements and add functionality to the app, do yourself a favor and download Blaq.

BlackBerry fans will recognize the name of the app, as it has been available on legacy BlackBerry devices as well as the PlayBook.

Currently listed at $2.99 in BlackBerry World, Blaq is compatible with both the Z10 and Q10.

You'll find Twitter streaming support, the ability to mute keywords and clients, BBM integration, and intuitive gestures to navigate the app. Admittedly, Blaq isn't perfect. There are a few features missing that I'd like to see added, such as Tweet Marker support and Hub integration. As it is now, you have to stay logged into the default Twitter app if you want to answer replies and direct messages from the Hub.

There's no question this app is the best Twitter experience available on BlackBerry 10 right now.

Download Blaq for BlackBerry 10 from BlackBerry World.
