For those who use or have used Android, you may know about TweetCaster, the popular Twitter client found on the platform (it's actually one of my favorites). Who knew they were working on a port to Windows Phone? Well, evidently they were and we took it for a spin.
First impression: quite fast and nice UI, it's feature support puts in the mid-range of offerings out there today. It's not bad at all, but not necessarily the best either. Good news is it's completely free (ad-supported), but it has no Live Tile, in case you were wondering. It's worth a shot for the more light Twitter users out there, though the Facebook integration is quite nice. (Note: I incorrectly say it doesn't have reTweet with comment in the video, but evidently it does).
Full feature set after the break and you can download here in the Marketplace.

Sheesh, enough with the twitter apps. All these twitter devs should get together and put out ONE kickass twitter app.
the marketplace must be a little offline.... cause this morning it showed you the INSTALL FREE button.... but now it doesn't, or they took out this app from marketplace?... the app doesn't appear even in the search option
Might have to do with those "dummy ads" I mention in the video. Not sure how the ad system works, but perhaps they released a version without the ads fully enabled, which of course means no revenue.But yeah, no DL link anymore.
the link worked just for a couple of hours, then dissapeared ... even the replies dissapeared
that is how you test to see if ads are running on your app. Your suppose to put in your info from ad center then they will run. atm they are not earning anything off those ads till that is fixed lol
Not there. Like it on android.
still not there in the marketplace. can see it through zune but not download it. Any news?
