twitter

You know we love showing you folks what those crafty devs have planned for their apps. That’s the case here with Twabbit, yet another solid and recommended Twitter client currently available for Windows Phone. The team is actively working on a Windows Phone 8 update for their client and we figured we would show you what they have going on.

Twabbit is a relative new comer to the Windows Phone Twitter field. It has a minimalist, Metro UI look to it but don’t let that fool you as it is packed with features and options. Yes, if you like tinkering with every notification, color for the UI, streaming choices and more then Twabbit is for you. It’s really amazing how many things you can manipulate with this client and hey, if you don’t want to you could just leave it on the basic settings and still have a blast.

If you like straight up Twitter clients with a ton of features, you can’t go wrong with the newcomer MeTweets (hopefully you picked it up for free recently). The app has quickly become one of our favorites for its no-nonsense, Metro UI take on Twitter for Windows Phone.

Version 1.2 just came on to the Store and it has numerous fixes and new features for Windows Phone 7 users and if you’re on Windows Phone 8, you get quite a few too.

Probably the best part about Windows Phone 8, besides the OS, is the new tools developers have to enhance their apps. Case in point: glƏƏk! from Liquid Daffodil. The popular Twitter client with a kick of humor is getting some Windows Phone 8-special features and we have a first look.

The good news for the rest of you is you don’t have long to get this as the app has already been submitted to the Windows Phone Store, meaning it should be available within the next few days.

We mentioned Tweetro recently when we interviewed developer house LazyWorm Apps who are also behind the Windows Phone app MetroTube. The Twitter client is meant for Windows 8 and runs quite well on RT devices like the Surface. Unfortunately, it has also stopped working.

That’s not the fault of the developers though but rather due to in part to two reasons (1) it’s very popular (as is the OS) and (2) Twitter has a 100K token cap.  Long story short, Twitter implemented new changes to how their API is used for third-party apps and it's causing problems--if an app goes over that "token limit", they get shut down and stop working.

Seems like the minor tweaks and adjustments for apps for Windows Phone 8 keep on coming, this time it’s the official Twitter client.

The update is now showing as version 1.3 for Windows Phone 8 while the Windows Phone 7 version is holding steady at 1.2. A quick scan of the changes doesn’t reveal an awful lot of changes so we’re putting this one down to some general tweaking in the absence of any change notes.

Although Windows Phone 8 is technically out most users are still waiting to get their hands on the new OS. Luckily, we're already seeing some major apps get bumped with new features such as CNN, SkyDrive and even Nokia's apps.

Rowi Twitter app is one of the more popular apps on the Windows Phone Store and they just posted a video showing off the new super-quick load time. The increase in speed is due to Windows Phone 8 just handling app launching and processing more efficiently, those 1.5GHz dual-core CPUs and in this case by removing the boot screen. The app also has the "fast resume" trick enabled whereby tapping the Live Tile after it is already running will not re-launch the app but instead just resume it.

No word on release but hopefully it won't be too long.

Microsoft has unleashed its Windows 8 hardware on Twitter by opening up the @Surface account. Surface Windows 8 tablets from the software giant will be its first major leap into hardware for its Windows operating system, excluding mice, keyboards and other peripherals, of course.

So far the account has published two tweets, one linking followers to a playlist of Surface videos, which contains only one thus far - it's the original video we all witnessed earlier in the year showing off what appeared to be a unique Windows 8 tablet of some sort - while the other promotes the music used in the Surface video.

Nokia's Windows Phone 8 line-up

We've seen Nokia poke fun at Samsung in the past by welcoming the company back to Windows Phone, as well as attacking its Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 marketing campaign. Nokia has failed to show signs of ceasing, and now the Finnish manufacturer has taken to Twitter in Italy to slam competing manufacturers and boast the specifications of the Lumia 920. The flagship Windows Phone is the company's bottled hopes and dreams running Microsoft's next generation mobile operating system.

Moolicious. And temporarily free.

Twitter apps are like shoes—everyone has their favorite and there is tons of variety out there. The client glƏƏk! has been quite popular lately what with its unique design and more rare features like “Extras”, “glƏƏks”, “pƏƏks”. But what if those distinctive add-ons are just not your thang?

Enter in Cowlick! It’s light in a few ways: for one, it is light themed and two, it doesn’t have those aforementioned features. Instead, you’re left with just a really robust and awesome Twitter client.

Behold, Cumulotweetus

The latest update to the super popular glƏƏk! Twitter client gave users the ability to create ‘Tweet clouds’ within the app. A Tweet cloud is basically a collection of words and phrases associated with a specific person on Twitter.

The addition proved to be so popular that favorite Windows Phone dev Liquid Daffodil decided to make a whole app dedicated to just that feature, but with even more control and options.

And thus Cumulotweetus was born and is now ready for download.

Carbon, has left the building...

Say what you will about Twitter clients, but the developers behind them can be a finicky bunch from our experience. That notion is being reinforced again today with the announcement that Carbon has been pulled from the Windows Phone Store for good.

The man behind Carbon, M.Saleh Esmaeili, took to his Google+ page to discuss what had happened after his interview on our podcast, Iterate. In short, Carbon was never meant to be multi-platform.

To the left, Twitter and to the right, reportedly Facebook notifications

Looks like Nokia’s New York City announcement is the gift that keeps on giving. Such is the case from the newly observed Twitter and Facebook notifications on the Lock screen during the introduction of the wireless charging part of the presentation. (Although Twitter is clear as day for us, we're still  not sure about the Facebook one--it's quite hard to tell.)

Not too long ago Liquid Daffodil offered all their Windows Phone apps for free.  Due to a glitch in the system the freebie offer for glƏƏk! was delayed just a bit.  glƏƏk! is a very nice Twitter client for your Windows Phone and we wanted to remind you that the free offer from Liquid Daffodil runs out in 24 hours.

The other apps from Liquid Daffodil have already returned to their regularly scheduled pricing points and once this special ends, glƏƏk! will return to it's $1.99 price.

If you're looking for a feature rich Twitter app for your Windows Phone at a steal of a deal, give glƏƏk! a try.  You can find glƏƏk! here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Nokia has painted a Peugeot 107 in Lumia colours following a tweet from Damien in Wexford, Ireland, who stated that he’d let the Finnish Windows Phone manufacturer add something extra to his car for a new Lumia 900. This was an odd request, but one Nokia simply couldn’t pass on. 

Not only does it provide free advertising for the Windows Phone platform and the Lumia family of smartphones, but it also engages the social community with another "wow" marketing stunt.
