MetroTwit for Windows 8 launched

A few weeks back, we handed out a bunch of free tokens for the big launch of MetroTwit 1.0. For those of you who have used the platform and have been salivating at the idea of a Metro version of the client, your dreams have come true. 

MetroTwit is now in the Microsoft Store and according to Long's post on Istartedsomething.com, this is a preview version of the client, so expect a few quirks here and there. Porting over the application was not an easy task as Long states on his site but with the help of talented Microsoft Engineers, they were able to get the client up and running. The post goes in to further detail about how MetroTwit was brought to Metro and is worth a read.

If you have already downloaded the application, let us know your feedback. The desktop application has always been a visual treat and it would appear that the team was able to keep visual goodness when they ported it over to Windows 8.

just wish they removed the dotted border outline on normal programs (still it on windows 8)

If I am thinking of the same thing I cant stand it. That dotted border that sometimes goes around click areas when you click them or something. Like a square around the circular back button or something.

I was shocked when they showed up in Metro apps.

did you try disabling Caret browsing?

No lists, only 3 columns (1920x1080), this app is totally useless. And I'm afraid most of the metro apps are going to be the same.

It's a preview, the creator has already said it has much work to do.

If it only updated my timeline as fast as Metrotwit Beta Loop (push) and not freeze my timeline from time to time, I would adore it. I still do adore it though. The only thing that is better than it is Metrotwit Beta Loop anyways sooooo.

i just wish the desktop version were this fast.
MetroTwit desktop's constant freezing still bugging me.
port Windows 8 version to desktop + permanent toolbar = PROFIT???
