Over the last few years I have been using the Osfoora client on my iPhone and iPad to use the Twitter.
On June 11th, Twitter turned off their API 1 and developers were only allowed to use API 1.1
As a result (well I think as a result) Osfoora stopped working as a Twitter client.
What is disappointing is that there was no news from Osfoora and no updates to the apps available.
What is disappointing is that this wasn’t a free app, these were apps I paid for.
I am not sure who I am more disappointed with Osfoora or Twitter.
There was an update for the Osfoora client for the iPhone, that allegedly used the API 1.1. It though, required 6.1 (something I had been putting off), I did that, updated Osfoora, rebooted the phone and now the app doesn’t work at all…
The end result is that I am looking for a new iOS Twitter client, in the meantime I am using the official iOS Twitter client, which is okay, but not really my cup of tea.
Update: Deleting and then reinstalling the app has fixed the app. Of course this won’t work on the iPad I believe as Osfoora HD hasn’t been updated and is not available.
…though it might one day!

I mentioned a week or so back the problems I was having with connecting a Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 HD video camera to a TV via HDMI so I could playback the videos I had taken with it on the big screen. I said I was going to try and use a different TV and see if that would make a difference.
No it did not!
I even tried a different connection method, using component video, but that did not work either.
I still can’t work out why it would not work…
One Photoshop magician, one bus stop and lots of hidden cameras.
Sometimes technology frustrates me no end.
I have been playing with a Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 HD video camera and it comes with a docking station which has an HDMI connection.
I thought if I docked the camera and connected the docking station via HDMI to my TV I could watch the video and see the photographs I had taken on my TV.
Well that’s what I thought what would happen.
Well no it didn’t, even though the cables were connected, the playback was still on the camera and not on the TV.
I then thought, it might be because the dock was not connected to a power supply, I did that and still the TV remained blank, though this time the camera went blank too!
So I went to read the manual, which was to be honest no use at all. It gave no additional information, as according to it, what I was doing was what I should be doing. As for the troubleshooting guide, well that was not very insightful.
Even the Google failed me with finding a solution.
Going to try with a different TV and see if that helps. However it shouldn’t be this complicated and this challenging, it should just work!
