Twikini, the Twitter client for Windows Mobile, has just left Beta with it's 1.0 release!

Available now from the application page at Trinket Software, Twikini is now priced at $4.95 with a second Trinket Software app of your choice, FREE if you blog about the application and $9.95 for business users.

Changes in the new version 1.0 release include...

  • 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.

All worthy changes, BUT, one HUGE annoyance remains... and that is that due to each Tweet's 'box' being a set size, longer Tweets have to be clicked on to view the full message. DOH! How this issue remains in a 1.0 release i'm not really sure!

That said, it is still a very capable client (if not quite perfect), so it you're a Twittererer, it's worth checking out! <_<

Don't forget you can follow 'modaco' on Twitter for the latest MoDaCo News and you can also hit up your 'My Controls' link above to add your Twitter name to your profile! :)
