Developers of MetroTwit, a Windows-based Twitter client, and WP7 Twitter client Rowi, have teamed up in an exciting new venture. 'The Nest', as they have named it, is a cloud-based framework that will allow users to sync data between both applications across platforms. The first iterration will focus on column configuration and unread tweet state, though more features are expected to follow. Another benefit to users is that since state data will be synced, The Nest will also serve as a client backup of sorts for multiple installations or reinstalls.
The great thing about this partnership, aside from just being a straight-up cool idea, is that it takes development to new level. While most developers either specialize in a single platform or try to own them all, The Nest let's each stick to what they are good at, while offering a great solution to the end-user.
