PockeTwit for Windows Mobile

pocketwit2 pocketwit1

The developers of PockeTwit followed the interesting FENNEC (FireFox Mobile Browser) user interface concepts of having menus on the sides of the main screen while activating those menus is done by sliding the main screen to the right or left sides (see video demonstration).

CORRECTION: Amit has brought to my intention that PockeTwit had this UI way before FENNEC even released their demo version, so I guess I owe the developers an apology.(thanks for the comment Amit! it has been a while since your last visit! ;-))

Interesting concept indeed, which makes PockeTwit not only a useful tool but also an interesting tool.

There's a lot of configuration capabilities and I personally liked the white theme. Besides, I think WinMo apps should stop using the HTC's Black theme so much. There are other colors in the world...

Anyways, nice freeware - give it a try!

I've been using PockeTwit since before Fennec was even announced & it has had those side menus & sliding system since beginning! So I guess its not proper to say that PockeTwit followed something which didn't exist! ;)

Thanks for the write-up. I enjoy seeing what people have to say about PockeTwit when they have more than 140 characters.

And to be truthful, I DID see a concept video from the Mozilla team before I created the PockeTwit UI. It wss mostly smoke and mirrors, but I was intrigued by the side-sliding technique and adapted it for my own needs.

I did implement it a lot faster though :)
