Been so busy I almost missed this…big love to the CH9 team…and and my desk starred in the movie.
Can’t. Wait. To. Get. This. Game.
It’s been a slow few days on my blog…all will become clear soon…
Anyway, I wanted to update you on the the official Twitter client for Windows Phone 7 that I’d been patiently waiting for. Summary – it’s brilliant. It’s not just me who thinks so…the guys over at Twitter love it too. There is something about the Metro interface that works well with Twitter (which you can see in MetroTwit too on the PC). It has everything I need – timeline, mentions, search, lists, share tweets, and it the subtle UI things I love like animated controls when you switch between landscape and portrait. It also has stuff I don’t use yet but may do…like translate built in and text tweets.
People love software that has attention to detail, a elegant UI and doesn’t try to do too much. On all of these measures, the Twitter client for Windows Phone 7 shines.
We’re a little over 24 hours away from PDC10 here in Redmond and the planes have been delivering the good and the great of the tech world in to town. You’ll be able to watch the PDC live online and it was no surprise to see that the team has added a Windows Phone 7 application in to the Marketplace.
The app shows schedule info and will have video content from PDC10. Love it.
[update] found the way to directly link to the app in the Zune Marketplace
A new post from Ray this morning….Dawn of a new day. Summarized above courtesy of Wordle. Still noodling on it as today is a mad sprint around campus for me chatting with Windows Phone guys, OEM team, Zune team and Ray’s team. Should be fun.
