Hashtastic for Windows Phone

On Twitter more than you should be? Then you’re probably familiar with and either love or hate Follow Fridays. What’s that? On Fridays, Twitter users will usually share a bunch of users they think their current crop of follows should follow. You’ve probably seen us do it a few times with the @wpcentral account on a Friday here and there. It’s popular among those social butterflies and especially anyone who manages an account on Twitter for a brand. Hashtastic is an app for Windows Phone users that makes #FF super simple. Let’s check it out.

Hashtastic does all the heavy lifting when it comes to praising some of your Twitter friends. You can add a handful of Twitter accounts which makes it great when you’re doing a #FF as either @wpcentral or @samsabri in my case. The apps is dead simple to boot, so this is a must have for any Tweeps out there.

All you need to do with the app is add the hashtag you want (#FF, #FollowFriday, #CustomHashTagHere, etc) and select a group of your favorite Twitter friends. You’ll initially see a list of folks who recently tweeted to you. Or you can select people to mention from one of your Twitter lists.


It’s also got some extra features that really add a Windows Phone touch to an awesome app. For example, you’ve got a new Avatar Gallery that’s powered by the Tile Me! app. This allows you to attach a collage image to the tweet with your favorite friend’s Twitter avatars.

Pair Hashastic with apps like Follorep and TweeCoMinder and you’ve got a pretty stellar selection of apps for maxing out your Twitter potential.

The app goes for $0.99 (trial included) and is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
