New quote gesture coming in Carbon update for Windows Phone [Video]

We detailed the Carbon v1.1 launch this past weekend and one thing is for sure, you folks really like this Twitter client. Here in the US, the app is now #2 under the Social category and it's rocking 4.5 stars which is pretty slamming for an initial release.

It was noted that in the coming days, v1.2 would be released bringing trial-support and numerous other enhancements. Now we're getting a taste of that as the developers have posted a new video showing off their new "quote gesture".

We always highlight "smart" things around here at WPCentral and this quote/reTweet gesture is quite brilliant. We have a feeling that Carbon will have a very successful future on this platform with these kinds of additions.

Still waiting for the ability to pin a search and see the number of unread messages on the tile (only the last part is missing). I will buy the app the very same day they publish this feature (I'll buy the first twitter client to bring this feature actually).

dot1ne says:

You mean, unread Direct Messages on a Live Tile? If that's what you're asking we already do have that in Carbon, all you need to do is pin an account or the app icon to your home screen and enable "Live Tiles/Background Updates" from Accounts & Settings scren.

ogracia says:

Its amazing, bought it straight far better than rowi , barely a bug on it so rich in features!!!, so now who will need that fucking rowi update...9 months to release a fucking mango version Rowi? Loosers

How pleasant.  By my count, it hasn't been 5 months yet, but whatever you think. :) It's purely a side project for us so we update as much as we can.
Cool feature, Carbon. :)

Rowi

adriel623 says:

Don't bother with him, you guys  have done an excellent job with Rowi, and to be honest I have multiple twitter clients installed on my Titan and I use them almost everyday and Rowi is one them. Keep up the great work.

ogracia says:

Really 5 months? So for what did Microsoft release Mango to developers in advance? Your app is full of bugs right now, scrolling is pathetic, the push notif are working when they want, Can't see trending topics.. I got force closings constantly...do i need to explain more? Because i can! your app was the more expensive twitter app by far, it was that difficult to at minimum give access to mango multitasking ?but instead you're probably releasing the update in time for Apollo. You are the example of why people don't want to pay for apps, because 80% of the times you pay you got this kind of service, If i don't do my job properly i get fired, is really pathetic to dismiss a costumer because 99% of the time you can learn something of why he's upset & a way to avoid that on the future.

ctafield says:

How are your apps coming along ogracia?

Jay Bennett says:

Yeah, cut a little slack for developers if you'd be so kind, we do have lives to live behind our development activities :)

dot1ne says:

This is Moe from "Carbon" team. No one should ever call any devs who delivered apps for you and worked long hours on their apps "Losers". And for what it's worth, why is there so much this app vs. that app in WP7 community, it's beyond me...

OldboyJules says:

Agreed. We're all on the same team

DougB541#CB says:

I find people take their twitter app VERY perosnally.
 
This is the same across all platforms.  Very odd.

Thank you, sir. :) Nice job on Carbon!

CreepinJesus says:

What's with the periods before .timeline and .mentions, etc.? It's really irritating for me and my OCPD :p

Tahiti Bob says:

I actually like that, gives it a touch of personality which is good on a platform where most apps look exactly the same. I think it has to do with the development studio's name or something.

CreepinJesus says:

...and I thought only techtards made double posts :(

lumic says:

My opinion could change upon using it, but I doubt this is the best implementation. I've never really liked these moves to "emulate reality" - it's not immediately obvious that tapping with two fingers on a screen will trigger what would be an air quote in reality. Furthermore, I doubt this is the most practical manner in which to quickly quote - I would think a relatively long swipe across the screen would be easier for single-handed usage, and less fiddly in general.

dot1ne says:

You could already do it in a standard way. 1. You could long press and wait for the menu and choose "Quote". 2. Tap on the tweet, and choose "Quote" from the Tweet screen. This is just a shortcut. We are trying things that are not usual and traditional, that's how new gesture and features come, some might work, some might not, we'll see how users respond to it once it's in :)

aubreyq says:

This feature is AWESOME! I was going to wait for the trial to be available but I think I'll go ahead and buy the app tonight. I can't believe the official Twitter client for WP doesn't do retweet with comment yet. Oh, well. Carbon, here I come!!

NH3MAN says:

Love It. Gestures Rock. I too was gonna wait for the trial but I'm sold.

falconx#WP says:

Mehdoh is as good as Carbon. But it´s free. So by now i´ll stick to Mehdoh.

DaHui623 says:

Carbon on webOS was an incredible app and i'm happy to see it here.

DougB541#CB says:

Is anyone else not able to download this app from the marketplace?
 
I get an error everytime.

soft reset the phone, usually helps

Loving .Carbon so far. It is the Metrotube of Twitter clients!

bcasteel says:

Love the analogy. I still use MetroTube, despite devs dropping support. Solidarity.
