The guys over at Mahtweets have been very busy, working on the first twitter client for Windows Phone 7 which will feature push notifications for Direct Messages and Mentions.
The client also supports:
- Twitter (no lists, but â€˜standardâ€™ feature set otherwise), Yammer, Tumblr (read only)
- Twitpic uploading
- MahTweets desktop style column/filtering for update types (contact/ignore filtering will come in the next update)
- Multiple account support for all the above services
- Theme aware â€“ looks great in both light/dark, and the various accents!
The client will be free, but push notifications, which would use MahTweetâ€™s own server, may be a premium feature.
Twitter has promised that this feature will eventually come to their own Windows Phone 7 client directly, but even then Mahtweets promises to be faster and more functional, guaranteeing that there will still be a place for a 3rd party twitter client.
Mahtweets for the desktop is of course already available, and also offers a great Metro-like look, and can be downloaded here.
