    There used to be before it went free... There isn't a paid version anymore.
    I have the brand new version. I'm new to WP, so I wasn't even around when their previous versions were out

    At long last Carbon for Windows Phone has passed certification. It should be with us within the next 24 hours.

    Twitter Quote

    We finally passed Marketplace Certification Test, we just requested publishing it to Marketplace, so 24h more n' we'll be there. Oh yeah!


    That's exciting news for everyone who has been patiently awaiting its arrival for the past 6 years. :D

    I wonder if it's been worth the wait. :dry

    You guys missed a couple: TweeterLight, Peregrine

    I don't have them, though I do have almost all the rest (Birdsong, Mehdoh, moTweets Pro, rowi, Seesmic, Tweet It!, Twitter). I look forward to adding Carbon to my stable.

    If I hadn't seen this thread I would have given up on finding a Twitter client for WP7. Have you tried searching 'twitter' in the Marketplace Search? The results are just stupid!

    Results:
    1. Twitter (official client)
    2. Blocked in Free (huh??)
    3. Angry Birds Uncov.. (what?!)
    4. Optical Illusions Free (oh geez..)
    5. Basketball
    6. Funny Jump
    7. Airhorn Ultimate
    ...you get the drift. Not a single 3rd party Twitter client is listed. Not one! Oh wait, there's Seesmic at #13. Wow, good job MS on the search function. Useless!

    Will Carbon be the best one? Just curious. I like rowi but scrolling seems to be off and that ruins the experience for me. I use the official app and get text notifications for now - ugh.

    No idea MannLou, I've never used carbon. I tried all the twitter apps and kept going back to the official twitter app. I'm still using Mehdoh though at the moment, I like it.

    I guess we'll soon find out if it's been worth the wait or not. :P

    So what's the Carbon verdict folks ? Worth the wait ? :dry

    I notice there's no trial, Naughty! :(

    Just read next update will have a trial.

    I've been a hardcore Rowi fan (minus the scrolling issues), but I'm trying out Carbon right now. It has some features that Rowi doesn't have (like twitlonger support) so that is cool. I still like the Rowi UI a little better. But the way Carbon displays tweets with uploaded images is pretty neat.

    Just noticed that in Carbon, Retweets are shown in a different column, i.e. not your timeline. This is pretty weird if you ask me. You also have to tap into a tweet in order to favorite, you can't do it from the timeline.....

    Leaning towards Rowi at this point.

    Hey guys!

    I'm gonna jump to the WP ship with the good-old HD7 but just wondering if any of those Twitter apps can do the following (I couldn't even find a solution on my current Android).

    Defining a specific "person", making a live tile on the pin menu where it showall of that users: tweets, retweets,replies AND the tweets mentioning that user.

    It just seems like the ability to show all the tweets mentioning a specific user is overlooked by Twitter apps, be it on WP or Android.


    Thanks in advance!

    Mehdoh will allow you to show tweets mentioning a specific user, and also pin that use to the start.

    Is it just me or we toast notification does not work like an usual push notification and there is no option to set the update interval other then 30 mins?

    Just installed Mehdoh but getting problematic with getting constant, automatic updates.

    It runs as a background task, so the update interval is entirely controlled by the Windows Phone OS unfortunately.

    Thanks cta. But it is really weird that you have to wait 30 minutes to receive any updates on any Twitter app, unless you do it manually all the time.

    If you need something a bit quicker than Rowi has push notifications that are almost instant.

    I just started using Peregrine, and I am pretty happy with it so far. I feel like it is a much better app than the default Twitter app.

    Does anyone know if any of these apps give a Tweet count on the Livetile? This official app is miserable. None of the apps I have tried have as much polish as Ubersocial for BlackBerry.

    New contender of Gleek, coming from a solid developer. 1.99$ with free trial, one of the most unique Twitter approaches so far.

    Worth trying, me thinks. Only serious lacking feature so far is PUSH. But other than that, it is a fun and very MetroUIsh client.

    Ah, the link:

    Peregrine has a Tweet count on the Live Tile. One of the reasons that I like it. Shows Tweets, and Mentions if you are mentioned. Great app.
