MetroTwit 1.0 now available

Two years ago, I posted a little crud Photoshop mockup on this blog.

MetroTwit concept 2010

Recently we broke our record of over 8,000 unique/active users on a single day. Today, we’re releasing version 1.0 of MetroTwit with the much anticipated multi-account feature for professional users.

With all the blood and sweat David Golden, Winston Pang and I have put into taming the beast that is WPF, I’m unashamed to tell you all to download and try it now.

28 insightful thoughts

  1. Congrats on all the hard work. Rest assured it is appreciated by all your users (Me included) and it will make other Windows Devs to think twice on providing a decent UI for us all!

  2. Awesome news. I wasn’t in the loop program, and it looks radically different from the time I installed it. Getting it now. Great work

  3. So you call professional users those who paid for the plus version?, not everyone has money to splash around,

    1. You are not obligated to purchase it if you do not want to. If you cannot afford $16, then you probably should not be wasting so much time on twitter to begin with πŸ˜›

    2. If you don’t have $15 to give to three guys who have spent on at least 6 or 7 hours per day for the best Twitter app on the market, I think you need to reassess your budgeting.

  4. Amazing work! Especially the GUI. You show how a Metro app on the desktop should be.

    I would love to see some blog posts about the possible way to Silverlight/HTML5/Windows 8 πŸ™‚

  5. Not fun having to do 2 clicks to mark a tweet as favorite, please bring back the one click fav πŸ™‚

    Some hotkeys would also be nice, namely to go directly to the latest unread tweet. mark tweet as favorite, reply, …

  6. How does that work when one don’t have a twitter account and just want to follow some people from time to time?
    It was possible to do so before. Now first screen seems to force the use of a twitter account…

  7. Have you got rid of the adverts yet? I’d love to go back to it, even if it is a bit slow and quirky, but the ads are an absolute no-no.

  8. Have you guys ever ran the WPF Performance Suite against MetroTwit??? I love it, but its very ram and CPU heavy

    1. We have but found it to be like trying to diagnose a person with a thermometer. It provides some info but doesn’t really help.

  9. Wow that’s great. Congrats. I still there wherever WPF is concerned, there is room for performance improvement. And keyboard usability too. πŸ™‚

  10. Congratulations Long and the entire team. This is a brilliant product and is always the first thing installed on any new machine of mine. Can’t wait to see what the future has in store – hopefully someone starts paying properly you for this! πŸ™‚

  11. Love MetroTwit 1.0!! Not as resource-heavy as some previous versions, and much less prone to crashing. The UI is awesome. My favorite desktop-twitter app!
