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.
