Twitter is something of a conundrum. The company has continually put restrictions on 3rd party Twitter apps, while simultaneously failing to provide a
great experience with the official Twitter apps. Twitter's Android and Windows Phone apps are nowhere near the best available, but at least the Windows Phone app has gotten an update to finally support core features like Live Tile support.
The app has also been redesigned with the standard four Twitter tabs: Home, Connect, Discover, and Me. Home is your traditional Twitter feed; Connect gives you access to mentions, replies, and retweets; Discover shows you trending topics, categories, and options to find friends; and Me leads you to your profile, lists, favorite tweets, and direct messages. The action bar now has quick links to search and composing new tweets as well.
Overall, it's a nice redesign, but we're not sure it'll give anyone reason to abandon other apps like Rowi or Carbon.
