The app developer behind Tweetium has rolled out a new update to the app today, adding several new enhancements and squashing a few bugs. We have been using Tweetium since its release and we have to argue that this app is likely one of the best Twitter apps available in the Windows Store today.
“Tweetium is the premium Windows 8 Twitter client you’ve been waiting for. It’s slick. It’s fast. This first release has been designed with ample feedback from serious Twitter users, with the goal of helping you get the most out of Twitter on Windows desktops, laptops, and tablets. Tweetium is a brand new app designed and developed by the maker of the critically acclaimed Newseen,” the app description reads.
Tweetium was bumped to version 1.4 and continues to be fine tuned with bug fixes and app enhancements. For example, this new update now showcases a “last seen” affordance so show you were you last left off. The update also adds various improvements and bug fixes. Take a look at the entire change log below.
