You are active on Twitter and stuck with a heavy Twitter client on your windows mobile? Then here is a light weight, fast, reliable and appealing Twitter client for your windows mobile – Twikini.
I will just say ‘Wonderful’. As I have already told you, I am using a Win Mobile since some time and I have tried other Twitter clients too, but I will say Twikini is just the best. If you have tried the beta versions of Twikini and disappointed by its bugs and flaws, then you must give the final version 1.1 a try. Many things have been improved.
Some of the features of Twikini are:
- Fast and ease of use
- Unlike other Twitter apps its very light with user friendly interface
- Simple and appealing
- Twitpic Integration – So that you can embed pics along with your tweets taken either directly from your mobile camera or the pics stored on your mobile
- Windows Media Player Integration
- Ability to read public time line
Remember, recently we covered a video footage of the famous Symbian s60 Twitter Client – Gravity? Similarly, we have recorded a video of Twikini as well, so that you can see by yourself how fast, stable and simple this twitter client is. Just have a look at this video:
