Twikini updated to version 1.0

image We have mentioned before about the lack of great Twitter clients for Windows Mobile and recently we have seen some good updates to Pocket Twit and now also Twikini.

New in this version is the addition of a public timeline, fast account switching, new themes and lots more, full breakdown of the improvements are after the break.

For the first time Twikini is not free, it will set you back $4.95 but you can still try it out for 14 days before spending your well earned cash on it.

Official version 1.0 (May 20, 2009)

  • New: Added Public timeline. Now you can read tweets from total strangers!
  • New: Fast account switching – now you can quickly switch between multiple Twitter accounts without reentering the password.
  • New: 2 new themes – Lounge and Cool Water.
  • Improved: Start up time will be faster because we eliminated one unnecessary Twitter API request for authentication.
  • Improved: Finally fixed the auto refresh issues. Auto refresh should work whether your device is turned on or in standby.
  • Improved: Added a 2-minute option for auto refresh.
  • Improved: The title bar of the tweet dialog will show you which account you’re tweeting from (to prevent accidently tweeting from the wrong account).
  • Improved: You can now manually delete the image cache from Options.
  • Bug fix: Fixed problems with tweets in languages like Thai, Russian, Chinese, Japanese etc. You can tweet in whichever language your device uses (not just English).
  • Bug fix: Fixed problems with encoding special characters like ? and % in tweets and DMs.
  • Bug fix: "&gt" and "&lt" were showing up in the timeline instead of > and &lt.
  • Bug fix: If you were in the Sent Items view, it would not refresh after you sent a DM.
  • Lots of performance tweaks and miscellaneous improvements.

Note: although this is the "final" v1.0 release, Twikini will continue improving just like before. We have more features to add and lots of ways to improve further.
