OK so maybe a quantum leap is a bit over the top but this update to the official Twitter App on Windows Phone is a significant update to the previous iteration. The other reason I am excited by this update is the prospect that maybe, just maybe, Twitter might just blow us all away when they release the official Windows 8 Twitter App. If this Windows Phone version is any indication they have really paid attention to details. If they put this type of work into the official Windows 8 App then they will bring us a great Twitter experience.
Here is a tour around the new app thanks to a bunch of screenshots – enjoy.
All in all a great version 2.0 and the speed/responsiveness is excellent.
A couple of items that could still be changed to tweak the app a bit:
- Offer a dark theme to go along with the light one. The current Official Windows TweetDeck Program already does this.
- As noticed by one of my Twitter followers, Jeremy Harris (@Fullmetal1986), the translation option is no longer available in this update. Since Twitter is a global network it would be handy to have accessible.
What do you think of the new official Windows Phone Twitter App? Any recommendations that you would make to improve it?
