Twitter app for WP gets major update

wp_ss_20130226_0002That not all interesting and great news comes from sunny Spain is proven by Twitter as they pushed out a major overhaul of their app for Windows Phone 8 today. It totally transforms the app and brings it closer to something far more native to Windows Phone than ever before.

Installing the update went fast enough and it would seem that there isn’t much new to be had, yet I was amazed. The UI is a complete overhaul and looks really good. But as everyone knows, beauty alone doesn’t make anything great. There are some pretty significant changes to the functional side as well. All usual Twitter functions are now easily accessable from mentions to trending topics to seeing your own profile. The usual WP8  improvements are also in tow, lockscreen notification and fast resume are now all supported.

See below for another screenshot of the new UI/UX. Be sure to look for the update in the store and try it out for yourself. One thing is for sure, the word update is used legitimately here.

A small sidenote, this is the very first real productive piece made on my Surface RT. Apart from WP not showing screenshots in the Windows 8 app it was a breeze. But enough about Windows 8, go download the new Twitter app. You won’t regret it.
