Windows Phone does a nice job of integrating your social networks (LinkedIn, Twitter & Facebook) into People Hub and voiding need of separate apps for most of the common tasks. But its nice to have the official apps for accessing the latest and proprietary features of each platform. As a recent converted to Windows Phone, I felt good that Twitter is investing and updating its app this week for the platform.
I never had a complaint of the existing version of Twitter App in Windows Phone, but the new version makes it consistent across mobile platforms. This makes my transition from iPhone to the Windows Phone version super smooth. I wish they soon release their Metro UI App for Windows8 too!
See below the old and new versions of Twitter app on Windows Phone:
