Tweeten 1.8 for Windows grabs Minimize to Tray feature

For those of you who rely on Twitter on the desktop and prefer the 'classic' Win32 app and power of Twitter's Tweet Deck then Tweeten is your jam.

Version 1.8 of the beta is now available and with it comes one big feature:

  • Minimize to Tray – Just right-click anywhere in the app and click on minimize to tray

That's quite straightforward but a nice little touch. There have also been fixes for drag-n-drop scenarios on Windows and Mac and they fixed the Report Tweet and Add to list modals, which has incorrectly displayed text.

Tweeten beta is currently free and is only available for PCs (it's not a UWP app). Don't forget if you are using Windows 10 Redstone for PC you can also use their free Tweeten Edge browser extension.

  • Is that a Rick and Morty XP background ? LOL
  • Is there a full features list anywhere?
  • It's a wrapper for as the Tweetdeck desktop client was, so it has approximately the same featureset as the Tweetdesk desktop client.
  • That wallaper though.
  • When I saw the headline I thought for a moment that UWP / Windows Store app support a feature like minimize to tray, but of course they don't, so its good that it isn't UWP / Windows Store app
  • Best app for Twitter on the Windows desktop since Tweetdeck died. Fenice's UWP app is a close 2nd, but its paid and the features haven't caught up to Tweeten yet.
  • But what about Tweetium?
  • I wish that Tweeten would sort out pop up notifications for new tweets in their Windows version. This was one of the handy features of Tweetdeck.
