Windows Phone 8 Twitter App Showdown


Recommended Posts

On Surface Geeks Podcast 34 I put out a challenge for you guys to sound off on what Twitter app you use and I listed a few requirements for the perfect Twitter app. In my opinion of course.  It's such a subjective question and answer on what is perfect.  My perfect app may not be physically possible.  It's a wish list though.


LIst the apps that you use, tried to use, etc, then give me some features you would like to see in your "perfect" Twitter app for WP8.


  • MehDoh

  • meTweets

  • twabbit

  • Twitter’s App

  • People Hub

  • Rowi

My Wish List

Timeline Options         

           Double Tap to top

           Where to start timeline when you open app. Latest tweet, where last left off.





           I need the @ and # sign on screen somehow. No hitting shift!

           Start autofill after hitting the @ button


           Always give option to quote.

What happens when you tap the tweet?

Easily view the "conversation."

Easy way to view a link.

In Line Photos, especially Instagram and SkyDrive.

Ability to zoom photo


Lock Screen Info

Handle Multiple Accounts easily

Bonus Points

           Sync with a desktop/RT client!

           Send link to tweet via share options

           Send a link that is in the tweet to share options, Pocket, etc.

      I'm used to the Tweetum App in Windows that allowed me to manage multiple twitter accounts but now that I've moved to Android I'm not sure what App to go with for the same/more utility.  What are you folks using?

      RESET Forums now has an Android app on the Google Play Store.  I don't see it via search since it just hit but I have a hard link to it.
      You can install it from there.  If you are a TapaTalk user it will look familiar with one caveat. You login with your RESET Forums credentials, not your tapatalk creds.  Once logged in you will notice more options for your interaction, notification, etc.
      I hope you enjoy this app. iOS is coming soon.

      Another link I think is useful that discusses RAID vs. WHS.  Read this article and the comments.
      Here is the link mentioned at the end of the podcast.  It's the one you want to save or print.  It might save you some time and headaches someday.

      Hey guys,
      Will/Can Nokia become a problem for WP? Can they be what Samsung is to Android?  I appreciate what Nokia is doing and understand Windows Phone is not as open as Android.  I see the exclusive deals that Nokia not Microsoft Store is making and it has me thinking about the future of WP.
      I would like to see what Microsoft does?
      Release a surface phone?
      Offer a Pure Windows experience without the bloat like they do with PCs? (Android is moving in that direction with the HTC One and Samsung GS4 stock offerings)
