The web exception most likely indicates a problem communicating with a web server (not definitely - just most likely). This problem may just disappear after a while, but it may not. I'm afraid getting in touch with the devs is the only thing you can really do, since this problem is specific to the software.

Just make sure that you can browse the internet okay before trying it again, then be 100% sure that you're using the correct username and password (try logging into the twitter site first, to be sure). Other than that, there really isn't anything you can do.

Although, saying that, since you've only spent £1.69 (or there-abouts), I'd recommend getting Panoramic moTweets instead. It's much better ;)

Found the solution :D

I from the Netherlands and there was a change in the Internet settings. I need to remove the portal.mmm and now it works good again!

Can i intall TT 1.6 again after a hard reset? I heard something about that Marketplace removes the .cab after install. But there was a solution for that. But prob it's too late now. Or not?

Despite the many knocks that marketplace gets, when it does something right, it really does do it right. You just go back to marketplace and you can reinstall any previously purchased apps from the front page. I have to do it quite regularly. Just 1 click and it installs all the crap I've bought from them lol.

A new problem.

TouchTwit is not working anymore because of an update of Twitter wich was better for some security parts or someting.

Code:
The email from Twitter:
Over the coming weeks, we will be making two important updates that will impact how you interact with Twitter applications. We are sending this notice to all Twitter users to make sure you are aware of these changes.
What are applications?
There are over 250,000 applications built using the Twitter API. To use most applications, you first authorize the application to access your Twitter account, after which you can use it to read and post Tweets, discover new users and more. Applications come in many varieties, including desktop applications like TweetDeck, Seesmic, or EchoFon, websites such as TweetMeme, fflick, or Topsy, or mobile applications such as Twitter for iPhone, Twitter for Blackberry, or Foursquare.
Update 1: New authorization rules for applications
Starting August 31, all applications will be required to use “OAuth” to access your Twitter account.
What's OAuth? 
•	OAuth is a technology that enables applications to access Twitter on your behalf with your approval without asking you directly for your password.
•	Desktop and mobile applications may still ask for your password once, but after that request, they are required to use OAuth in order to access your timeline or allow you to tweet.
What does this mean for me? 
•	Applications are no longer allowed to store your password.
•	If you change your password, the applications will continue to work.
•	Some applications you have been using may require you to reauthorize them or may stop functioning at the time of this change.
•	All applications you have authorized will be listed at http://twitter.com/settings/connections.
•	You can revoke access to any application at any time from the list.

But TouchTwit has not done an update. I have already e-mailed to them but i dont get any awnser. Anybody knows if there comes an update for TouchTwit? I payed for it...

Touch Twit have announced a while back to stop supporting wm 6.5 (they consider it a dead OS) and looking forward to WP 7 (bah!). While Twitter changed the way you login, TT didn.t (and probably will not) release an update to fix this. So the chances to see TT work again on wm 6.5 platform are pretty slim.(you can always bug the developers to fix it...who knows). I suggest you switch over to Panoramic moTweets (they still support the app currently 1.8.5) - payed app or PocketTwit (i.m not sure about this one if it still works) or just use HTC Peep (although it kind of slows down the whole system)

Cheers!


Edit: In my opinion, if you paid the app you should get support for it ( i mean it.s not that hard to change the login procedure on the current version)

Well, still no reply from touchtwit devs, after lots of mails.

I can accept a "we will not support blah blah" answer from them, but I absolutely won't accept no answer.

And to think that I recently bought this app... and it stopped working less than two weeks afterwards. Really feel stupid for something I paid which I could use for free. Pun intended. That's why I'm so damn furious.

I gotta rethink my "try & buy" policy really hard I suppose...

touchtwit market place cab removal

kinda new at this ,but i thought that if you have sktools there is an option were you can create a cab file from a program installed on your phone. so if someone were to purchase this tt1.8 you can recreate it using sktools. anyone can correct me if i am wrong
