Twitter for Windows 8 and Windows RT Hands-on [Video]

twitter 2

Earlier this week Twitter finally announced their app for Windows 8 and RT devices. It’s a really nice app that was well worth the wait. If you have used the official Twitter app for Windows Phone then you are already familiar with the Windows app. It looks like the Windows Phone app if it was turned into landscape mode. That’s one of the things we really like about it.

The app accomplishes many of the things that previous Twitter apps couldn’t do it, and they had a pretty big head start. In this case it looks like it helps to be Twitter when you’re making a Twitter app. Everything “just works.” The only thing that seems to be missing from the Windows app is multiple accounts. We would also like to see a multiple column layout, but we understand that is probably wishful thinking from an official app. If you’re a Twitter user this really is the best app for Windows. Check out our video below to see it in action and compared to the Windows Phone app.

  • That not being able to go back before the age loads is a surface thing because I use a reddit app that loads its external browser and I basically can’t do anything until it finishes loading.

  • Thanks for the insight!
