We recently mentioned Tweetro, the new Windows 8 Twitter app for two reasons -- (1) we had a video tour at BUILD and (2) the app had to be pulled due to it being too popular. That latter part has to do with Twitter's new API changes and limits on how many people can use a third-party Twitter app. Needless to say, it's putting the crunch on Twitter devs. And it means they'll likely have to charge a pretty penny for their wares. Yes, Tweetro is back. But it'll cost you.
The developers behind Tweetro aka LazyWorm Apps (who also make MetroTube for your Windows Phone and yes, that's coming to Windows 8 too), have now released Tweetro+ with an introductory price of $9.99. It will jump to $12.99 in two-weeks, so you may want to get it now...
The question is, why pay for a Twitter app? Well, to be honest it is becoming necessary. Devs need to eat and Twitter is basically forcing their hand on this issue. If it makes you feel better, the most poplar Twitter app on OSX (Tweetbot) fetches for $20, so $9.99 is competitively price--relatively speaking. Of course even the popular MetroTwit has a Plus version that goes for $15.60 though there are cheaper alternatives out there, like Liquid Daffodil's Cowlick and glƏƏk! for Windows 8 which are both under $5 (and highly rated).
Personally, we like quite a few out there but we will say that Tweetro functions well and is quite stable on our Windows 8 tablet. If you like the company and their client, you'll have to decide if it's worth it. We're okay with it and as you can tell, we bought the app.
You can pick up Tweetro+ here in the Windows 8 Store.
Speaking of tablets, we'll have something on that Acer Iconia W510 and how it compares to the Surface RT later this week. The answer may surprise you.
