Carbon Update Brings Landscape Composition & Filters

Great news for all you Carbon users. The Dots & Lines team have been hard at work making several improvements to Carbon since it finally launched on Windows Phone and many of the improvements are things I’ve been wanting since I started using the app.

Carbon has been updated to version 1.3, with the most substantial feature being landscape composition of tweets. It’s nearly ingrained into me to flip my phone sideways when I’m ready to type something, so the fact that Carbon was missing this was really the only thing I could gripe about.

Other features of 1.3 include:

  • Timeline Filters/Mute for Users, Hashtags, and Services such as Foursquare, Getglue, etc…
  • Further Timeline scrolling & general performance enhancements
  • Read Later Enhancements: tap+hold on URLs in Tweet screen to save for reading later
  • Mark all Messages as Read by tap+hold on “.messages” pivot.
  • Saving to Instapaper & Read It Later now adds tweet details to saved URLs
  • Detect Images from URLs ending with .jpg .png .gif
  • Enhanced error handling with error messages along with option to Report Errors back to us
  • Added retweets to Lists timeline
  • Support for Japanese & Korean typefaces

Carbon is available in the Marketplace for $1.99, with a free trial available. If you want to give it a shot, hit the button below.

  • Love their app. If you want a badass app, look no further than Carbon. Their design aesthetic is just amazing and it works like a charm.

  • I have to say, most of these twitter apps for windowsphone work extremely well. it really is hard to choose which one to use daily. Rowi, Mehdoh, Carbon, Birdsong and Gleek all do the job really good.
