You know we love showing you folks what those crafty devs have planned for their apps. That’s the case here with Twabbit, yet another solid and recommended Twitter client currently available for Windows Phone. The team is actively working on a Windows Phone 8 update for their client and we figured we would show you what they have going on.
Twabbit is a relative new comer to the Windows Phone Twitter field. It has a minimalist, Metro UI look to it but don’t let that fool you as it is packed with features and options. Yes, if you like tinkering with every notification, color for the UI, streaming choices and more then Twabbit is for you. It’s really amazing how many things you can manipulate with this client and hey, if you don’t want to you could just leave it on the basic settings and still have a blast.
So what does the Windows Phone 8 version pack? Glad you asked:
- Support for double wide, small and medium tiles with live tile notifications
- Support for fast resume (currently supported only on the main time line page, other pages are in progress)
- Support for lock screen notifications + billboard
- Support for voice commands through TellMe
And no, the version you see in the video is not the final one as the team still wants to clean up the UI a bit more and move some things around.
As you’ll see from our video below, one of the selling points for Twabbit (besides the feature set) is speed. We’ve found the “Compose” Tile to be one of the fastest if not thee fastest to launch for Windows Phone. That’s partially do to the fact that the app doesn’t load up your Twitter stream in the background and we like that—fast and to the point. You’re in and you’re out.
To get yourself acquainted with Twabbit for Windows Phone 8, why not go try the current version on the Store to see if you likey? You get a free trial for the app, which otherwise will fetch you the fair price of $1.49. Pick it up here and we’ll let you know when that Windows Phone 8 version goes live.
