  • Oh yeah keep them coming ;)
  • Why are there no "Download App" buttons in the app anymore?
  • Downloads for the Windows 10 Store don't work in the old app. The new app is on its way.
  • On a lighter note, "Coming Soon™" :3
  • Thanks for the info. Can't wait. Any ETAs?
  • @Weel Hasno Just how many times. This has been answered almost on all articles that speaks of an app.
  • Chill. Not everyone goes into the comments at the same time to know what's up
  • Did someone steal your sweet roll? Relax. Happy holidays.
  • Because you touch yourself at night.
  • Lol
  • I have written to window central derv directly on twitter but no reply, am confused my self
  • Can't one of these Twitter clients be free?! :(
  • Independent dev. They don't exactly earn money from Twitter itself per user on their app. And it looks great without ads
  • Then more people would download it, user base would go way above the token limit, resulting in the app being blocked/removed by Twitter.
  • Still no update for official twitter app.. :/
  • And we should not expect that anytime soon
  • Sigh...
  • make wp central app as an universal wp app
  • They're working on it!
  • Am I the only one who can't see conversations, or even just replies on other people's tweets with Fenice?
  • I'm in the same boat...I'm afraid that that's just how this app is, but I can't imagine that to be the case. Especially considering the high praise given to this app. That's a pretty basic feature. Can anyone shed any light on this?  
  • Hi, Fenice dev here.
    ​Tweets replies are not officially supported by the Twitter APIs. There are some workaround but the result would be just a small part of the full conversation. I'll see what I can do.

  • Its nice that developers are actually replying to user's comments..
  • Thanks,I was just about to ask the same question!
  • Wow, I had no idea. That's pretty ridiculous on Twitter's part. Thanks for the response! It's awesome being able to get questions answered directly from the source.
  • I love to reply to users when they ask politely :)
  • Thanks for the response, Alessandro, really appreciate it.
  • When you guys will update your own app ??
  • They said they're working on it. Hopefully it'll be a New Year gift from them :)
  • I would love to see an article comparing all of these Universal Twitter apps.
  • Well, this app is much better than those other twitter client apps (including twitter official itself)
  • That would be great. I really like Aeries a lot, but Fenice, Tweetium have also been getting good press.
  • how lucky i was that day when it went free for once long ago and i downloaded it..
  • I love third party more than officials. Rudy apps, Venetasoft apps and apps made by other third party developers.
  • Twitter is one of the worst "social networks" ever created, yet it gets like 10983203 apps. at least people can't complain about it on Windows Mobile/Phone.
  • You missed a couple of comments above ;)
  • What about saving your spot - Re-Open Fenice on the last read Tweet - ? Every time I open Fenice, it takes me to the top of my stream and not on the last tweet I read. I know Tweetium does this quite well and this is about the only thing keeping from using Venice Full-Time.
  • it can play gifs, wonderful!
  • Is this the same thing as Fenix for Android? Posted from my Moto X Pure Edition via the Windows Central App for Android
