Not Bad

I bought the pro version and while I like it, I wish I could have the time lines of both accounts on the screen at the same time.

This is my favorite Twitter app ... but ...

As far as the functionality of this app is concerned, it is possibly the best out there ... but ... because I am vision impaired (due to pigmentary glaucoma) I have to use a high contrast setting on my Windows 8.1 system ... MetroTweet has no high contrast/night or font size/style/weight settings ... Because of this all characters are yellow on a white background making it impossible for me to read, and therefore, totally useless ... If, and when, Metro Tweet tests and fixes this problem I will not be able to use it or recommend it.

Not the worst Twitter client

I use Macs and iOS devices most of the time, which have a ton of great Twitter clients available (Tweetbot being my favorite), but wanted a Twitter client on my gaming PC too, so I gave MetroTwit a try. It's sad that the Windows side of things is so feature poor, if this is (supposedly) the best 3rd party Windows client. No read position syncing. In fact, it can't even remember where I left off on it, and constantly jumps to the top of my timeline when I switch back to it. About all it has going for it is stability and, like other 3rd party clients, doesn't show promoted tweets. Given that it keeps losing my place, though, I think I'll just read tweets on my iPhone while using my PC.

Love the simple UI

It seems to have everything you could want. But isn't cluttered by anything that you don't. Just wish it would show updates when in Desktop view. Customization on what it would show while in that view would be doubly great. But that's just me being picky. Still give it 5 stars!

Love the metro style and the simplicity, but the error message makes me crazy. It keep saying "Error loading. Tap to retry" though my internet connection is fine. Fix it!

Probably the best example of what Windows 8 can do

This app is great. From the auto updating timeline, to the WONDERFUL use of animation. that doesn't come short in any areas of usability like honestly most apps on the windows store do. This is probably the best example of what a good windows 8 app looks like. BUT the huge killer to this app is not being able to favorite without clicking the tweet and going fullscreen on a single tweet. Yet there is a retweet button on the bottom bar. There is plenty of room for a favorite button and I'D REALLY like to see one, it would make this app a whole lot better.

So much potential, but too many bugs.

Love the look and feel of the app. Only twitter app that I no of that's been updated to 8.1, but too buggy to use on a daily basis.

Closest app to Tweetdeck and Plume on android

The app has a great interface and layout for multiple columns, custom search columns, user only columns, and inline pictures. The last update seems to have fixed my concerns with scrolling--or at least they are a lot less apparent. I bought the app. Worth supporting the ONLY good twitter app in the market.

I want to love this app

It's beautiful, smooth, fast. Really pleasant user experience. But it just crashes randomly with no real rhyme or reason. There's an offer to upgrade to Pro, which I would do in a heartbeat if it was stable. Instead it looks like I'll need to try some other app experiences. Plus, oddly, the upgrade link doesn't work because it appears there's no MetroTwit Pro in the app store.
