LCBD Review: Twikini

As mentioned some time in the past, I am proud owner of an HTC Touch with an unlimited data plan. Not having much experience with a phone that could do so much, let alone one running Windows Mobile, I asked my fabulous group of twitter followers if they could recommend something and was pointed in the direction of Twikini.

Twikini in Action

Suffice to say, I have been pleased with my experience. Twikini is a slick app that gets the job done and I find has a far better user interface than other options I tried (Tiny Twitter and ceTwit being two). It allowed me to follow my personal timeline with ease, replying or DM’ing my followers without any trouble. Also, after using built-in support for Twitpic, I was publishing images off my Touch that would have likely never seen the light of day. Had it not been for the fact that the Beta version had moved into release and my 14 day trial ended, I’d likely still been using it. Really, the only drawback I found in it’s use was the auto-update feature not working like it should, but that could have simply been an I.D.10.T error on my part.

All in all, I would recommend anyone else looking for a Windows Mobile Twitter app to give Twikini a whirl.

  1. Hi Chris. Popped on over from Tanya’s on this lovely Sunday eve.

    I used to have a WinMo device – a Motorola Q that I absolutely adored. Alas, my carrier, Telus, recalled it after three months and nicely replaced it with a BlackBerry. Nice to see solid software available for WinMo…I’m hitting end-of-life with my BB, so it’s time to start mulling replacement options. You’ve given me food for thought.

  2. Thanks for the useful info. It’s so interesting

  3. Thanks for the great review – I’ve covered Twitter apps for BlackBerry and for the iPhone on my blog, but I was not aware of what was out there for Windows Mobile. Twikini looks pretty slick indeed!

  4. Had posted a comment a little earlier, but guess it didn’t get added..

    As I was saying, I am new to twitter and trying to get convinced as to WHY people want to use it 🙂 Seems to be a bit of an info overload if we are following too many people.

    Tanya sent me here.
