Carbon finally updated to fix broken mentions and search

At long last the single most popular Twitter app for webOS smartphones has seen an update. Long overdue, the folks at dots & lines pushed out an update to that has fixed a number of bugs and improved support for the . It's a minor update, but it fixes major problems.

As far as bug fixes are concerned, you can expect version 1.2.4 of Carbon to mark the return of functional feeds for Trends and Mentions, as well a working Twitter search function (in as far as Twitter search itself is working well, which often it seems to not). As for the Pre3, Carbon's graphics library has been updated to support the big-screened higher-resolution webOS smartphone, and tweaks have been applied to get rid of . The end result is a crisper-looking app that fits the full 3.6-inches of the Pre3's 800x480 screen. To be honestly, we're just totally pleased to be able to see our Mentions again.

That's just the bug fixes and improvements that Carbon has seen. While we still love the webOS version, we can't help but look at the features like inline image previews that have been worked into the newer and versions of Carbon. Then again, given what we would expect the current sales rate for Carbon webOS to be, we wouldn't expect dots & lines to exert the effort it would take to rewrite Carbon to support the new features. We'll take this update and call it a happy.

. It's a free update to current Carbon webOS users, or $1.99 to new purchasers. If you're a webOS smartphone owner and Twitter user and haven't downloaded Carbon yet... well, you might be wrong.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas?

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      When I am trying to play premium content on hotstar, it is showing me the playback error. Please resolve this. In other devices it is working perfectly. I have raised this to hotstar they asked me to raise it to TV manufacturer. Attach is the screenshot of the issue.

      I’d love to stream the upcoming F1 season directly from my LG OLED TV without depending on other devices to source it. When can we expect this app to be featured by LG? Thanks!
