The recently launched third-party Twitter client Aeries for Windows Phone has received an update today that brings with it a ton of new features, improvements and bug fixes.
Here's the very long and detailed change log for the new 1.2.7 version:
- Trends section no longer hides last trend behind app bar.
- Big perf and battery improvements.
- Fixed a few rare crashes with tweet gesture actions.
- Fix for hide app bar not correctly hiding.
- Fix for status bar not being visible when system theme is light and local theme is dark.
- Memory footprint reduced by up to 60%.
- Fixed a bug where filtered tweets can be re inserted in the wrong order when the filter has expired.
- Viewing who retweets a status will now fetch the latest info for it.
- Design changes for pinned searches and lists when Icon headers are being used.
- Option to apply tint color to inline buttons.
- Last viewed trend will now save for each account.
- Improvements to pinned secondary tiles.
- Navigation fixes. Prompts to save drafts and apply settings now show before navigating backwards and back button fixes for exiting imageviewer.
- Fixes for viewing who has retweetd your tweet.
- Instapaper support.
- Additional font size options.
- Options to set your style of Tweet quotation.
- Fixed a race condition which in rare cases could lock a user out of the app until they reinstall.
- Improvements to user file management.
- Fixed an issue opening imageviewer from tweet details page.
While Aeries first launched at $4.49 (with no trial version available), but it has been lowered to $2.49 as a "limited time" sale. That price is still in effect so you might want to jump in and get this impressive Twitter app now, just in case the developer decides to increase the price again.
Thanks to Abhishek for the tip!

Microsoft’s ‘Project Latte’ aims to bring Android apps to Windows 10
Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code changes by packaging them as an MSIX and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
