The Metro app allows you to track your Twitter feeds with interactive tiles and a multi-column layout. The app uses nifty features of Windows 8 Metro apps for a great user experience. It allows you pin multiple columns on the homescreen and provides a Snap view for quick access to tweets. The tweet options and action buttons are available in the application bar allowing maximum screen estate for the Twitter feeds. MetroTwit is one of the few applications with built-in support for edge scrolling, triggered by the mouse when it reaches a vertical screen edge
The app is developed from ground up since a port of the existing WPF app wouldn’t have been possible. Also, according to Long, it is designed for both mouse and touch from the start, a deviation from the existing Windows developer mindset.
The app scores well in terms of usability, and fits the bill for the needs of both casual and power users of Twitter. Apart from MetroTwit, Windows Store features two other Twitter apps – Rowi and Tweetro.
