Lumiapp: MeTweets (Twitter client) – Free today only! (WP8 only)

| December 25, 2012 | 7 Replies


I just found out that MeTweets, a twitter client for Windows Phone 8 is available free. I have heard people rave about it, so figured I should give it a go. Boy am I glad I did!

I am normally snobby with my apps. I find ones I use, and stay loyal with them (twabbit on wp7, Tweetian and rocket on N9) but on my Lumia 820 I have been experimenting a bit more.


Anyway enough babbling. On to the app. It supports notifications, streaming, multiple accounts, tweet scheduling, in-line actions (tap tweet in timeline to get reply, rt, favourite etc without leaving the timeline page), theming options, threaded DMs, flick down to “jump” (set up columns eg, timeline, mentions, messages etc, and swiping down the title brings up a list of all columns so you can “jump” to that section), resume timeline from last position, and the list keeps going!

Here is the info from the Store listing:

MeTweets – The most complete Twitter experience for Windows Phone

MeTweets is a Twitter client that goes beyond just Twitter. With a simple and easy-to-use interface it is perfect for beginners, yet it offers all features a power user would need. MeTweets was built to give you all you need, fast.

• Tweet with pictures and add location to tweets, with the ease of hashtag and username mention auto completion.
• Push notifications: Get a notification when you’re mentioned or receive a DM. Missed the notification? No problem, as it will show up on the Live Tile!
• Lock screen integration: You can see MeTweets notifications on your lock screen.
• Scheduled Tweets: You don’t have to be there to be on Twitter. Schedule tweets and we will post them whenever you like
• Configurable home screen: you can use the columns you want. Choose from timeline, mentions, messages, favorites, top tweets and lists or add other user’s timelines or search queries.
• Streaming: for heavy Twitter users it can be interesting to have tweets, mentions and messages pushed to your phone as they appear on Twitter. Streaming does just that, instant delivery.
• Embedded photo viewing in the timeline
•Fast Actions: reply, retweet, favorite or view tweet details from the timeline
• Multiple account support
• Built-in photo viewing for Twitter, Instagram, TwitPic and Yfrog with capability to save to your phone
• Adjustable retweet style
• Orientation lock: read your Twitter timeline while laying down without having your screen rotating around
• Mute filters: Hide certain tweets based on author, content or source. You can, for instance, hide all Foursquare tweets
• Save for later: Save tweets for later using the built-in Pocket or Instapaper support
• Full landscape orientation support
• Pin “new tweet”, or user profile tile to your start screen

Clearly I didn’t do it justice at all!
