Firstly, here's the quoted changelog for v3.0.1:
- First official release on phone!
- New theme system! — You can now choose from a set of background colors and pair it with your choice of accent color (or none at all!).
- Multiple photo upload is now supported
- Added “Start at last read” option — This will load to your last read position, up to about 200 tweets back (the most Twitter will provide in one request).
- Connect+ is now enabled by default for all Pro users — More improvements to this coming via server updates soon
- Updated UI for profiles (particularly in portrait layout)
- Many UI and layout tweaks throughout the app
- Last read indicator is now attached to the top of the last read tweet, to help keep it from going under scrollbars
- Performance improvements
- Reduced battery and bandwidth usage
- Reduced occurrences of (non-stream) rate limit errors
- Fixed image embedding for conversation entries with multiple images
- Worked around a phone-only OS bug causing secondary touch contacts to trigger accidental thread expansions or button/link presses.
- Cancel pending thread expansions when moved off-screen
- Workaround for unmute function being undone by mute roaming
- All assets are now available at all scale sizes on phone
- Updated logo
- Fixes to loading and position restoration
- Fixed a bug which could cause the view to continuously try to load new tweets when near the top
- Fixed a bug with the CommandBar foreground color for black background with gray accent
- Fixed a bug which could cause redundant color entries to appear in the color selectors
- Fixed a problem where search box suggestions could be missing if capital letters were used
In action, the new version of Tweetium looks like this:
Although not perfect yet (it used to be faster, so I'm assuming that are optimisations waiting to be added in, plus I could get it to crash every time with a particular misplaced swipe), the developers are putting a lot of effort into this universal Windows/WP application, so I'm optimistic for the future.
You can buy Tweetium from the Store here. Yes, it's commercial software, but I promise that you'll be happy - it's certainly the slickest I've seen for Twitter on Windows Phone. All for the price of a half pint of beer.
If you need more (e.g. multiple Twitter accounts, real time notifications) then there's a Tweetium Pro too - see the in-app links and comments,
