Twitter Updates Windows Phone AppBy: Chris Crum - February 26, 2013
Twitter announced today that it has a new version of its Twitter app for Windows Phone. It has a new design, which the company says “brings the app in line with the other Twitter apps”. It also includes some new navigation features, new icons and live tiles support.
The app has four new tabs: Home, Connect, Discover and Me. Familiar territory to iPhone, Android and web users, but Home lets you view Tweets from those you follow, and expand the tweets, and whatnot. The Connect tab shows you your mentions and those who have followed, retweeted or favorited you. The Discover tab shows you trends, new content on Twitter, categories, and suggestions for accounts to follow. Finally, the Me tab lets you read and respond to direct messages, see your lists and your favorites, and view and update your profile.
There are new icon buttons in the Application Bar for composing tweets and searching from anywhere in the app.
WIth live tiles, you can pin Twitter accounts, lists, and searches to your start screen.
Twitter also revealed its app for Firefox OS today. More on that here.
