Twikini updated to v1.2

Twikini One of the best Twitter clients for Windows Mobile has been updated to version 1.2. This is easily one of the fastest clients you can get on Windows Mobile, I us it myself from time to time.


Twikini offers a powerful and efficient way to use Twitter on your phone. It conveniently updates your favorite feeds in the background, and leverages the camera, GPS, media, touch screen, keyboard, graphics and storage capabilities of your device.

Our goal is to make Twikini the best designed Twitter app for Windows devices in the world.

Main Features
  • FAST! Unlike other Twitter apps for Windows® Mobile, Twikini is written entirely in native C++ code for maximum performance and the fastest load time possible.

  • Simple, uncluttered, and customizable user interface. Choose from a variety of themes for the best reading experience. (Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2, Screenshot 3)

  • Post tweets using a full screen editor. Optionally, set your location (either manually, using GPS coordinates, or geocoding) along with your status updates. (Screenshot)

  • Send and receive Direct Messages.

  • Twitpic integration to post photos with your status updates. Select existing photos or click new ones from your device’s camera. When reading tweets, view Twitpics inline (without having to open a separate browser). (Screenshot)

  • Read status updates just like browsing a web page. Quickly reply, retweet, favorite, or email other people’s tweets. (Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2)

  • Windows Media Player integration. Automatically tweet the song and artist you’re listening to. See a realtime feed of other people using it on Twitter.

  • URL shortening services including, TinyURL and Digg.

  • Browse websites using Skweezer.

  • Single download that is compatible with all Windows® Mobile devices – both touch and non-touch.

  • And lots more…

Here is the full list of updates:

Version 1.2 (Aug 11, 2009)

  • New: When you click on a Twitpic link, the large photo is conveniently shown inside Twikini. You no longer have to launch a web browser to view the picture.

  • New: Option to launch all URLs in Skweezer (this optimizes websites for small screens). The option is OFF by default. Enable it under Tools > Options > Data/Download.

  • New: Specify which view you want the app to launch in every time (@Replies, DMs, Favorites, Public timeline etc). That way you can quickly get to the Twitter feature you care about most. Find this setting under Tools > Options > Data/Download.

  • New: Set auto refresh to only check DMs and @Replies. This reduces bandwidth usage and battery life, and avoids disturbing you with tweets you may not care about. Find this setting under Tools > Options > Auto Refresh.

  • New: Our first localized version – translated to Danish, thanks Tommy Pedersen. (Coming soon: French, German and Italian).

  • Improved: The timeline listview "wraps" at the top and bottom so you can quickly jump to the top or bottom of the list.

  • Improved: After @replying to a tweet, your currently highlighted item in the list will be kept highlighted (previously it would jump to the newest tweet).

  • Improved: Rewrote some GPS code so it should now work on all devices (or most!). Lots of people had trouble with GPS in previous versions. Please let us know if it works OK now.

  • Bug fix: some passwords were not being saved correctly.

  • Bug fix: when you post a tweet with a "+" character, the "+" would be lost.

  • Bug fix: messages containing ‘<‘ or ‘>’ would get chopped off.

  • Other minor improvements and code cleanup.
