Best Windows 8 Apps
9 July 2016
1 - The columns are actually continuations of the timeline, starting at the left. It's not separate streams, such as mentions, DMs, or lists.
2 - To see multiple streams at once, you open a new window, which seems to be a new full instance of the app, and then you can select which stream to see.
3 - Can hide all images, which is pretty hard to find
4 - Expanded tweet will show images from other sources, ex Instagram
5 - If you make a new window and want just a single column, if you make the window too skinny (about less than 1/2 inch margin on each side), the separator bar disappears.
6 - Would stream in Tweets, and then scroll to top. But had navigation to last read tweet.
7 - "Show twitter app name" doesn't show it.
8 - Scrolling was stuttered. I also get that in many Windows ModernUI stuff.

I've been using this app for months now and it's currently the best one in the Windows Market. Always works, smooth and highly customizable. This is all without the Premium app!

This is by far my favorite twitter app available on the Windows Store and any app store for that matter. Up there with Fenix for Android

App is good, but closes automatically. Needs lot of improvement. Cant take money and give a third rated product.

Works great on my Lumina 2520

I am NOT very happy with Windows 8.1, Matter of fact I think 8.1 is garbage!! BUT.... This App is ROCKSTEADY!!!! the UI is seamless and I love the look of it. I think that it is Unique and PLEASE DON'T SCREW IT UP!! Update the app to make it better, Not worse. This is by far the best twitter client I have experienced. Almost makes 8.1 bearable.

Works well but wish the Pro version did not include an annual fee.

One of the best Twitter apps available today.

Need a "pro" subscription to see both of them on top of the app purchase price. Back to plume on android. More file from the Windows Scam Store,

So many basic features missing. Such a clumsy interface. My guess is that folks have no experience with other more mature twitter clients out on iOS & Mac. Was looking for something for my beloved Asus Windows 8.1 notebook but this thing is an embarrassment and a waste of money. Hashtag help (none), searching clumsy, unfollowing people is possible, mute only for 1 day, user interface likes to sail and switch and flip to various tabs, it's just awful

tweetium is my favorite app in windows 8.1 and 10,, if you could add notifications from selected sites you follow that would be awesome,,,

This company knows how to build an interface. The scrolling is unbelievably smooth regardless of how many tweets you have on the screen with media content.

The best Twitter app for Surface that I have tried. My only request is to add the boxed quote without using the 140 characters
Developer is always on top of changes to the APIs for this app, making necessary changes when applicable. Great support, great UI! And it's a Universal App to boot!

One of the best Twitter apps I've used on iOS, Android or Windows. The only thing I think could make it better is an in-app browser for clicked links.

I crave for tweetium when I am on iOS.

Nope. Not paying a subscription for basic twitter functions.
If you can't support your software, then price it correctly.

By far the best Twitter app I have used, including on my phone. Love how fluid it runs and it looks so clean. I did the trial and decided to buy a few minutes in. Definitely blows the Twitter app out of the water.
I purchased this App because I liked it's features. Now, a week after the purchase, it will not let me write a tweet or click on any of the controls... Very disappointed
UPDATE: After an uninstall, restart, & reinstall, the app appears to be working fine....
The app constantly loses place and jumps to the beginning. You must pay extra for Tweetmarker support to keep your place synced with other Twitter apps you might have on your phone or other computers. I would be happy though if the app could keep track of where you were like the standard Twitter app.
You can view tons of tweets at once in this app which I really like. After some time I have adapted to reading my timeline horizontally. The app gets tons of updates.

Bring back old theme. Let us have the option. Do not fix if it is not broke.

Awesome twitter app. Can be used on any phone, tablet or PC because is an universal windows app.
Multiple account support is much needed!

This is a nice Twitter client. More flexibility for the color schemes would render the fifth star.

I like it. Adding the return arrow was HUGE. Hopefully now when I save a picture, it won't take me to the beginning of my TL.

Not only is this the best Windows 8.1 desktop app, it's the best on Windows Phone 8.1 also. Fantastic universal app that is always being updated to fix bugs and add new features. Well worth any money you spend if you use the Windows platforms

will lose your place if you click on a link or switch between apps. Highly annoying for a paid app. It has controls to 'save' your place, but they don't work. Not sure what I paid for.
Update - CS saw my review, contacted me and despite my slow response, found the problem and updated the app. Can't ask for more than that. Well done. Am changing my rating as well, from 2 to 5.

If you have a problem with the app, please contact the support e-mail! (Or use the UserVoice page, or at least reach out on Twitter!)
There are zero known crash issues with the app. If you experience one, please use the Settings -> Advanced -> Send Error Logs button to help track it down! If there's no log to send, please send an e-mail so I can help. It's not possible to respond to reviews here so if you don't leave a way to contact you, there's nothing I can do.

Purchased app, and will not allow me to log on, tried to uninstall it, reinstalled it, same issue. Windows Surface RT
