  • No Tweet Marker? :(
  • Last read position still doesn't work *goes back to official app*
  • It does. https://twitter.com/AeriesWindows/status/689552324910542848
  • Yeah, that's me. Still doesn't work.
  • Yess. Aesthetically, Aeries looks the best to me.
  • I think Fenice is great actually. It's on point with the current Twitter and Windows 10 UI. Looking to try Aeries or Tweetium though.
  • Fenice doesn't show tweet replies. Useless to me, sadly. My main choice is Tweet It!
  • I'm with tweet it too.
    But this one worth a try
  • I hear that it is, but it isn't as pleasant on 8.1 :(
  • I like tweetium. But really want official app to get updated first.
  • My favorite Twitter app for a while. Tweetium always had some more features, but I've always liked the looks and usability of this one more. Awesome update, keep up the good work!
  • But has he fixed the invalid media parameter error that has been there forever. I cant tweet a camera role image from my 1520. Fwiw, aeries has the same issue.
  • Just got it and looks good :)
  • I cannot believe that this feature rich app is missing the most basic of functions, a notifications feed -- where you can see all notifications including new followers or likes on your tweets
  • I still can't tweet, retweet, and favourite. It's like my app is on read-only. It's been like this for weeks now despite updates. I always receive the "Twitter has blocked this action" error. My account works fine in the official app, though.
  • The is happening with me... I don't know why :\
  • Apparently, the dev is still investigating. Also, it appears that only WP 8.1 is affected.
  • I like Aeries & Tweetium. Just wish there was an option for inline image size.
  • its crashing after you add section to the app :/
  • That is quite the changelog!
  • Woohoo! Can't wait to go give it a shot. Love Aeries.
  • I want to buy this app so badly. But won't buy it unless I try it coz I already own Fenice & Gleek. Why no trial dev?
  • Definitely my favorite Twitter app.
