    I am an Android Tweetcaster user currently. Which is the best Twitter app on WP7? I read a review for the Titan where the reviewer casually mentions that Seesmic is his favorite Twitter app, and that there are no really good ones on the platform. Is that the consensus?

    I tried Rowi, but couldn't spot any difference from the official app. . .

    Birdsong FTW. Rowi is nice, but crashes far too often - Birdsong hasn't crashed on me once since I switched. Birdsong can also show you any direct messages and mentions at a glance from your main stream of messages.

    Is that exclusive to the 'full version' as I looked out for push/pull on the trial to no avail?

    Don't get tweetcaster for wp7. I used tweetcaster pro when I was on android so I shelled out the money for the wp7 version only to find out it wasn't nearly as good as android version.

    No push or live tile with the free version is correct.

    you'll find that most trial apps don't include the Live tile, part of the incentive to buy.

    Birdsong is .99, you can't go wrong.

    Hmm never looked into other Twitter apps compared to the main one and I don't use the official one since it does not have a break from last seen tweets to new tweets like I've seen on all the ones I have used on my iPod.

    Any of these suggested ones do this?

    Rowi seems to be the ONLY twitter app that even has the OPTION to save your last read tweet location. Why is that?? Don't devs realize that sometimes people dont get around to catching up on timelines for hours!! This seems to be a staple of a feature on every app on every other platform??

    Kudos for Rowi for being the only one, but load times and semi-crashes while trying to catch up on timelines detract from the app. Why only load 25 tweets at a time and then jump away from previous last read location.

    Uggh. Nothings perfect. Why can't it be perfect!!??

    Great. Thanks for clarifying. :)

    @buddhas_eagle will have to review these Twitter apps with that in mind.

    Rowi does this. I use Simply Tweet on my iPod, and it's one of the best twitter apps on any platform.

    i gave Mehdoh a try last night based on some comments in this thread ... i like it a lot, it's quick!

    opened it this morning, caught up on my timeline, got busy at work, checked it 2 hours later and when i opened it the tweet at the top was from "4m" ago ... that's not keeping your last read tweet position.

    is that what you're taking about Mehdoh doing?
