Tweetro+ App lands in the Store!

image

“Ladies and Gentlemen, we got him!” The elusive Tweetro App is back in the Store as Tweetro+. You have to have been living under a rock to have missed the whole shebang over Tweetro and Twitter these past weeks. Yeah, Tweetro got too popular for Twitter so they had to cut it down to size by reducing its tokens to 100K. Our buddy at WindowsObservers.com carried the whole story. You can peruse the whole details there.

So now Tweetro is back as paid App, because Twitter wants in on the piece of the Pie of course. But at $10.00? I find that rather steep for an unofficial Twitter client. You have to bear in mind that Twitter itself is creating its own client as we speak, and it will eventually compete with Tweetro+ whenever they released it. And there is the possibility, even more probable that Twitter’s own client will be free in the Store as it will be a joint effort between Microsoft and Twitter. So Lazyworm may be pricing Tweetro out of the market, and that will be very sad as this is a good Twitter client. Curious here to see  how this all will play out.

For the new-old App itself, I am taking a very close look at the description and screenshots, I can’t see any thundering differentiating feature as far as I can see. Of course its polished and professional and all now, but it doesn’t diverge much from what we’ve already seen in its Free incarnation. Following is the description of the paid version in the Store:

So, there it is, the much awaited Twitter Client is back. Question is will you take the bait? What do you think about the price. Let me know in the Comments. Note there is no Trial mode, you buy this or you don’t, so I assume most of you that knows the app wouldn’t mind to buy without trial. But for new users? I think they should have added a Trial mode. Anyway, download the app now via the Source Link below.

The King of the Hill is here – MetroTwit hits the Windows 8 Store!

 

Microsoft has just pumped the Metro Store with a release of a whopping 12 additional apps to the store, bringing the total number of apps to 293 Apps. Among those apps is the much-anticipated Twitter Client: MetroTwit. For those of you on Windows 7 or Windows 8 Desktop, MetroTwit doesn’t need any introduction. This is the leading Twitter Client on Windows Platform. The app implements the true Metro paradigm even before Microsoft’s Metro debuted. If you have seen the Zune Client, you have seen MetroTwit. And now that we have Metro in Windows 8, we’ve been waiting for this App to debut.

Well, now the waiting is over. You can get the App direct from the store in the Social category. This is just to break the news. I will be updating the post with details. So go get via this link: http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/app/aa115aae-09e1-48de-95a1-35d77d23c9a0
