moTweets Twitter app finally gets released

We mentioned it last week and here it is, moTweets has finally cleared the Marketplace certification. Made by Panoramic, moTweets was a favorite app on Windows Mobile and it has now finally transitioned over to Windows Phone. Even though the app is "only" v2.0 (technically, the first release), it packs a huge amount of features that will rival any other Twitter app on the market today.

The app comes in two version: free and 'premier' (or Pro). The former is supported by ads and costs nothing, while the latter goes for $0.99 and has no ads. We always like choice and that applies here too. Anyways, we're gonna go give it a spin. Let us know how it works for you in comments.

Our initial impression? It's nice but a bit slow and cumbersome. That's not unusual with initial releases though, so hopefully it'll speed up in future updates. Still, it's not immediately replacing our number one favorite Twitter app which is...

Grab moTweets (Free) here and moTweets 'premier' here.

  • Yeah I was waiting for this one... Unfortunately it didn't live up to what I thought it would be. You can't blame me for having really high expectations after watching that video you guys had posted when you originally mentioned the app coming to wp7. But I'm not gonna completely bash it, it'll get better given time.
  • What is your number one Twitter app??!? You didn't finish! And PLEASE don't say Seesmic. That app is a joke.What we REALLY need is PUSH NOTIFICATIONS!! Can't SOMEBODY do that ???
  • What's wrong with Seesmic? It's my #1. It's pretty fast and does literally everything I need since they updated it with partial landscape support. I'd say it's far from a joke.
  • Yeah, it was only OK on Windows Mobile. I'm just wondering why the official Twitter app is so sucky and hasn't been updated.
  • I actually like the official twitter app because it hosts multiple twitter accounts. I tried Beezz (or however you spell it) and the damn thing's push notifications NEVER WORKED. Has Beezz fixed that yet?@Daniel - What is your favorite twitter app?!?!?! The world demands an answer!!!!!
  • is...Birdsong atleast thats my favorite!
  • Birdsong is hands down the best Twitter app, and RedBadger is going to implement Push Notifications in their next release, which should be shortly going off the last two releases. It now supports multiple accounts too.... It's going to take something big to blow me away to switch from them now.
  • Birdsong for me.
