I like it, replaced my main client and using it exclusively from now on. Any chance for a WP7 client thats FAST, and robust?

I was hoping they would finally add an MSI installer but they don't seem to listen to feedback much. Whether it doesn't auto-update due to lack of ClickOnce is not my concern and I would be updating it manually.

i like the MetroTwit i wish they put two display mode 1 large and 1 mini mode like the one in destroytwitter or like in the picture posted here with 1 column the white one

Kinda disappointed that MetroTwit now has ads.

It has had ads before and you could just click the x to remove the ad. But the ads were removed in another update.

Long said,

Some backstory on why we introduced ads http://www.metrotwit.com/2011/...es-of-peanuts-milk-and-ads/

In other words "The project became more polular than we expected. Because of this, we realised that we could add ads to make some quick money, to keep this flow of money, it would also require us to spend more time on the project, thus giving the excuse that we needed to add the ads in the first place. We want to spend more time on it."

You're partially right. We trialed ads almost half a year ago and told our users at the time we'll need some form of revenue to continue development at a steady pace.

Like all free software, it's being developed at a opportunity cost - the cost of not doing something else. In this case, we want to recoup this cost going forward because we believe we can deliver even more of what users seem to like enjoy using.

tl;dr we want to do more of what we're doing which users love but we need to make a living too.
