    Twitter apps have become a tough business these days, especially once Twitter imposed restrictions via tokens. This artificial wall basically punished popular apps by limiting how many customers could download and use the Twitter service via third-party systems. The latest company to throw in the towel is Rowi, built by the guys at Hidden Pineapple.
    First coming onto the Windows Phone scene in early 2011, Rowi quickly became to the go-to Twitter app for many people. With its deep black and minimalist design, push notifications and all-around general smoothness, it was for a long time a shining example of Windows Phone development. Later, a Windows 8 version appeared as well.

    Ouch. Sad news indeed, especially for the people who ended up buying it.
    Goodbye, Rowi. We'll miss you.

    (Well, is it wrong to treat a 'dead' app as a person?)
