Twitter, one of the most popular social network with a recent design upgrade has unveiled the official Twitter App for Windows Phone 7. The all new Twitter client which has now been made available on all Windows 7 Phone, is no different feature wise than those found on other smartphones. While we hoped to see something different offered for the Microsoft phone, Twitter decided to keep it real with features such as Timeline, messages, lists, suggested users and the search pane. The Twitter App also facilitates new users to sign up for an account right from the Windows Phone itself.
Twitter adds that the App has been made more efficient and fast in order to blend with the Phone. Twitter’s new App for the Windows 7 Phone is somewhat unique, as the Twitter Blog read:
The platform’s design and user interface, which is called Metro, is especially great for Twitter users because it’s simple and easy to use. It also provides a different way to look at information on a phone’s screen through Pivots, which are sort of like pages of the app. Pivots allow you to swipe left or right to view different categories or types of information within a single application. For example, in Twitter for Windows Phone, you can swipe left or right to move from your timeline to mentions to direct messages.
Twitter along with the development partner, IdentityMine, made a great effort on creating the new application for the Windows Phone. Twitter made use of the open source REST API library, Tweet Sharp as the foundation for the app and IdentityMine as the release agent which will look towards upgrades and improvements, making it open source for everyone to use.
