Creator of glƏƏk! Twitter app releases Cowlick! for those with lighter tastes

Moolicious. And temporarily free.

Twitter apps are like shoes—everyone has their favorite and there is tons of variety out there. The client glƏƏk! has been quite popular lately what with its unique design and more rare features like “Extras”, “glƏƏks”, “pƏƏks”. But what if those distinctive add-ons are just not your thang?

Enter in Cowlick! It’s light in a few ways: for one, it is light themed and two, it doesn’t have those aforementioned features. Instead, you’re left with just a really robust and awesome Twitter client.

What makes Cowlick! fun is the humor found within the design and settings—it basically has a personality. Whether it’s “the Verge” setting (blames Twitter errors on Microsoft), font size selection (“Normal for ‘Normal People’), the app feels quite fresh.

Sure, your other features are there too: multiple account support, inline images, search, auto-contact fill, font effects, shrink URLs…it’s all onboard. So it’s not lite on features by any means.

Oh and did we mention it’s free for the next “few days”? It is, so that means if you should go and download it “lock in” that price for future updates. Speaking of, if you notice on page transitions the screen momentarily flickers to black, no worries. That was a small oversight and will be addressed in the already submitted version 1.1 update due out soon.

What else is there to say? Cows are cool and so is Cowlick! by Liquid Daffodil. Grab it here in the Windows Phone Store and let us know in comments what you think (the devs are listening). And don't forget about the other recent and interesting LD app, Cumulotweetus.
