Softonic review

Practical and attractive desktop Twitter app

MetroTwit is a Twitter desktop client with clean and modern design based on Microsoft's own Metro design language. It aims to offer all the functionality of the web app, but outside your browser.

MetroTwit certainly looks good, with a bold design that's color customizable and looks great in Windows 7. The downside of that is the app doesn't have a standard interface. Like most desktop Twitter clients, MetroTwit is split into columns which can be added or deleted at will. You could have your Twitter feed, plus a search and your private messages, for example.

MetroTwit has optional popup and audio notifications, although a busy Twitter feed makes them almost impossibly intrusive! You can also choose your image and link shortening services. Overall, MetroTwit does a good job of putting the web app in a clean, attractive desktop client. What it is currently missing is support for multiple accounts, which many dedicated apps now offer.

MetroTwit is a neat desktop Twitter client, but it's in very early beta form, so you are likely to encounter bugs. However, we found it to be pretty stable and the design is refreshing.
