I STARTED USING Gravity around a year ago. Back then, it had a limited but useful set of features for Twitter and it kept me abreast my Twitter conversations without bogging down my overstressed laptop. Things have evolved in that year's time and now Gravity has become a fully integrated social networking client with additional support for Foursquare, Google Reader and Facebook. I can use it one-handed while hanging on street corners. I can let it auto-update while perching my phone in my car's instrument cluster and it shows interesting things like dynamically-refreshing Twitter search results. In my experience, Gravity lets me tag in and out of Facebook faster than with any other client. This sweet little program cost me 10 euro so I bought two of them and run them on different Nokia phones.
Gravity's continuous evolution is a testimony to its commercial success. Its revenue stream permits Jan Ole Suhr to work full time as a developer, knowing that people will continue buying his handiwork. The alpha versions of the new Gravity have internal changes to support Twitter OAuth and by clever design, Gravity will port to Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 platforms. I like how Gravity supports my favourite social networks and I'm looking forward to it incorporating Plancast this summer.
The current public Alpha version 1.30 can be downloaded as a phone installation file from mobileways.de/latest/gravity-alpha.sisx or via the Info & Updates section inside Gravity. Version 1.30 geotags my tweets and also tells me about others who have geotagged themselves.
