After a very long wait, the Carbon twitter app, ex-webOS, has now arrived on Windows Phone 7. The app places a great emphasis on efficiency and speed, with extensive use of secondary tiles so you can hop directly to the part of the application you wish to use, e.g. your time line or posting a tweet.
The app features:
- Full inline Pictures on the Timeline(needs to be enabled from settings)
- Double Tap on tweets for quickly replying to tweets without the need to leave timelines
- Quickline: A swiss army timeline for accessing all kinds of timelines from Lists, Retweets, Saved Searches.
- Live Ties for every account, pinnable to the Home Screen with Mentions & Direct Messages background checks
- Compose Tile, pinning a compose tile on the Home Screen for a speedy tweet composition
- Search Tiles, pin a #hashtag or keywords to your home screen for quick access to a search timeline
- Threaded Direct Messages View
- And of course, Bit.ly Pro URL shortening, Read Later support(Instapaper & Read It Later) and a lot moreâ€¦
The developers dot1ne are planning to add push notifications soon, as well as expand the number of image uploading services supported.
The current version is an expensive Â£1.49 without a free trial, but version 1.2 will also support this feature.
