Tweetium beta now available for existing owners on Windows Phone 8.1
Tweetium is one of the best Twitter clients available for Windows 8.1. Which is why we were really stoked to learn that a Windows Phone 8.1 version of the app was in development. Last week we gave you boys and girls a sneak peek at the upcoming version of Tweetium for Windows Phone 8.1. Today you can get your hands on a beta version of the app. Details below.
Want to beta test Tweetium for Windows Phone 8.1? Of course you do, so hit up the download link below. But first, let's go over a few ground rules.
- This beta requires Windows Phone 8.1.
- This beta is intended for existing Tweetium owners. Assuming you already own Tweetium from the Windows Store, you will NOT be charged when installing this app from the phone store.
- If the store has a Buy button instead of Install, tapping it should tell you that you already own it.
- If you're a Pro subscriber via the Windows app, then your Pro subscription carries over as well.
- Settings and read states will roam to and from Windows PCs/devices
- The app IS lock screen capable and includes live tile functionality (and push notifications for Pro users)
We've been playing with Tweetium for Windows Phone 8.1 for over the past week and really like it. We can't wait for you to join in and check it out yourself.
How do you become a Tweetium owner on Windows 8.1? You buy the app from the Windows Store. We'll include that download link below.

A lot is missing but very nice UI
Oh, wait, but, $3 for app and $7 for push notif? I'm fine with metweets. (but, if it's $3 plus push notif. Gonna buy it)
I think those people who are complaining about the subscription service want something for nothing. Small developers have to pay for their servers etc. Unless they are trust fund kids, how do you expect them to finance a premium Windows Phone experience for you. Twitter imposed token limits which saw off some major development and some brilliant apps. This developer has taken the time to respond to comments on this article and his reasons are valid. So please stop complaining. If your stunning windows phone loses all its brilliant apps you will end up without a good experience and then you will moan even more. WhatsApp charges after the first year. I know several people who have paid the subs to keep the service.
