While it has only been a few days, the popular Twitter client Beezz is gearing up for a v1.2 update that should make a lot of folks happy.
First off is the new Live Tile, with counters for messages, new Tweets and mentions--not too shabby, though it looks a little crowded. Still, we like innovation. The next features are some biggies that a lot of folks have been clamoring for:
- saved searches
- conversation view
That just about fills out the most popular Twitter features and we're pretty excited about giving it a spin. No word on ETA this time, but hopefully it will have less hangups than the last update ;-) Stay tuned for more.

LOL, Hopefully is works better than the previous release. I think the live tile looks great, and isn't too crowded. It's about time time someone offered more color to the default color tile! Can't wait to give it a try.
Looks great to me. I don't find the new tile too crowded. It solves a problem, actually. Now we'll be able to see if we have mentions and messages that need attending to. New Tweets, in general isn't news. My number 1 request is still missing...reply with comment.
I may have to switch to Beezz after this update. I really need to see when someone mentions me and this is a no brainer. Now if only they would allow fullscreen view of profile pics...
Looking at this almost makes me want to sign up for Twitter...
I will probably be switching from the offical Twitter app once this update comes out. I usally never use 3rd party apps when they have offical ones, but Twitter is just is just letting me down. I just hope there will be more apps getting on the move and start including things that are what make the phone differnet.
This is free, correct? Is it ad-supported? This is certainly an application that warrants a price tag, the dev is really showing up some big name companies with his updates. Imagine if more WP7 developers were this proactive with their applications - and if Dell got off their butts and shipped Venue Pro's to everyone that ordered....
It's free. Don't see any ads. Then again, most free Twitter apps I don't see ads, so either I'm oblivious or they work on a different model, not really sure.
