Twitter Introduces New App For Windows 8 [VIDEO]
Posted on March 15th 2013
Twitter has just released a new Twitter app for Windows 8 that will make it easier to share and discover the content you love most on Windows 8 devices. Twitter is a great place to get breaking news, updates on local and global events, inspiration and to follow fascinating people. Twitter lets you share moments by expressing your views and ideas with rich media like photos, videos and commentary. In addition to traditional Twitter features you may be familiar with already like Home, Connect, Discover, and Me tabs, this app release adds new functionality that takes advantage of the unique features offered by Windows 8.
This feature lets you use another app alongside Twitter by snapping it to the left or right side of the screen. You can now keep up your Twitter feed and conversation in real-time while watching a streaming video or reading a story in another window alongside Twitter. With snap view, you can adjust the window size of the app to 33%, 66% or full screen width.
Photos are now large and center with an all-new landscape view. Not only can you see larger versions of photos, you can also swipe horizontally to browse through multiple photos in the Discover tab of a user's profile.
You can tweet from any app at anytime now. By simply swiping from the right edge of Windows 8 a share charm becomes available to share content on Twitter from given app including photos or news articles.
Live Tiles and notifications
Twitter for Windows 8 is now available in the Windows Store in 22 languages.
Windows 8 might not be a mainstream OS for devices yet, but these features do bring some interesting new options to the table for Twitter fans. What do you think? Do you have any Windows 8 devices?
