ThinkTwit Update 1.1.6

So I recently noticed that although my last update included caching, there were some times in which the cache would not be accessed correctly – specifically, when updating from Twitter it was overwriting the cache rather than updating it and then displaying the cache. This wouldn’t be a problem if the live update was full of tweets, but if it had only one it would overwrite the cache with only 1 tweet.

Additionally, have split the Live option in to “Live (uncached)” and “Live (cached)”. The former will not use the cache at all and will always go straight to Twitter (meaning if Twitter is down it will not display anything) and the latter will always check for updates from Twitter (rather than waiting x since last update to check it) and then store the updates in the cache before displaying cached tweets.

I’ve updated the ThinkTwit page on my blog with the roadmap as during this update I’ve realised a few other minor bugs. I’ll get on to these in the coming weeks.
