Can't decide on which Twitter client to download? There's an upcoming app for that!

Twitter Pinpointer

We've been asked the question, "what's the best Twitter app" countless times. Simply put: there isn't one. Well, not really anyway. App choices are entirely subjective to personal preferences and likes. An app we may recommend may not be up your street and you might have another app installed on a Windows Phone. Unfortunately, since there are a handful of apps out there on the store, it can prove rather daunting as a new user to the platform to locate a Twitter client. Luckily, Liquid Daffodil has released a new app to help with that.

Cue Twitter App Pinpointer.

What the app does is asks consumers 20 simple questions about what they require, like and enjoy from a Twitter experience and filters through the catalogue of Twitter clients available on the Windows Phone Store. This way, there's no requirement to search through the store search and spend hours downloading multiple apps to see which one is perfect for you. There's also a neat way to compare feature lists against one another, just in case you require that functionality to be present.


Liquid Daffodil is asking consumers to get in touch, test the app out and see how accurate the data is (as well as seeing if any Twitter apps are missing). Should you wish to get involved, be sure to reach out to the team at support@liquiddaffodil.com. If you fire across an email and help the team out with validating data and general testing, you'll also receive the Unlimited Liquid Subscription for free. Not a bad deal (worth $15).

Coming soon to both Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

"You can download Twitter App Pointer from the Windows Store for free."


I'm asking for this link, genius.

Hey guys. Sorry for the confusion. The apps aren't yet available. Updates made to the article before publishing weren't correctly saved. The article has now been updated. Apologies.

Yes. The notification on the live tile never updates though but that's been like that since WP7. Seemed like there was no support til the Beta got leaked last week. Thought they'd forgotten about it. Just needs a few other niceties like better hashtag support. The stuff that comes with all other third party apps is just fluff.

*if* it had inline images - it would be usable - but having to click out everytime you want to see what someone is posting image wise stinks.

God, i hope he's working on a Facebook Paper app. I have it on iPhone and it's a beauty... and knowing Rudy, his would be superior to the real thing!

Yeah if he makes that. We wont whine for official fb app. Fb inc has ignored us everytime. They know WP is a good phone needs official apps but such a shame on that company that they cannot release app for us.

Yeah I've actually been using the booklet beta. It's okay, but there's loads of cosmetic and functional detail that I think our guy Rudy would hit on the nail.

still no in-line media
- No quick replay/ Retweet ... and it takes ages to load fresh tweets. 

though, i still prefere it over other 3rd party apps.

MeTweets, this app is awesome. It took a long time to get an update but over the last two months, it's received at least 3 updates. The quick reply menu and the smart merge/split is awesome

I've bought nearly all the most popular Twitter clients for Windows Phone and they're all awful. Except for Gleek none supports push notifications. Performance is subpar on almost all of them and the UI leaves a lot to be desired. Only the official client is half decent. However even that falls flat when compared to something like Falcon Pro for Android or Tweetbot for iOS.

Bingo!  I am primarily an iOS user and have used Tweetbot on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac and now Twitteriffic on the iPhone and iPad.  I just recently purchased a Nokia 521 to play around with 8.1 and I am really dissapointed with the quality of Twitter clients for WP as compared to iOS.  It's almost as even some of the less popular iOS clients are better in terms of features and quality than the best offerings on WP.  

What's wrong with the official one?? I find it pretty awesone and love it. I just enter on mobile version and download the official one. :P
