When users installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, they were mumbling about the new operating system that did not provide a Twitter client, as was previously the case in the Windows 8 Developer Preview. On Windows 8 DP, the Twitter [email protected] client has been provided.
But now FlipToast has released a Metro application to access Twitter and Facebook in Windows 8 and is now available on the Windows store. FlipToast is the first application Twitter offers in Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
To install FlipToast Twitter & Facebook Client, open the Windows store. Click on’New publications’.
I also noticed a new’Top paid’ category – although it doesn’t list any applications yet.
If you cannot see the’New version’ option, click on’Top free’ and search for FlipToast. If you can’t find it, press WinKey+Q in the open store and select Apps, and enter FlipToast in the search field, you will now definitely see the application. Install it.
Let’s see what FlipToast & some of its features look like. FlipToast is a simple Twitter client, but you can also access Facebook through it.
After installation, open FlipToast and click’+’ at the top right. Then click on’Accounts’ then on’Add an account’ and configure your Twitter and Facebook accounts from here.
This is how it looks after setting up your Twitter account
In the first column you see your’mentions’, then the timeline as news feed photos as the third column, then the inbox with DMs in the next column and then some of its games and applications.
Right-click FlipToast to get several options for Tweet (Update Status), Post image, Refresh, Refresh, etc.
Right-clicking on a tweet gives you its own response options, retweet, fav and view.
Overall, this is a simple and simple Twitter client. On the Home screen, FlipToast is a live tile and is updated as timeline
You can also configure it to access your Facebook account .
In addition to FlipToast, there are some new applications in Windows 8 Store
If you are a regular Channel 9 customer, there is a Channel 9 application among them, which might interest you ! This application gives you access to all types of content in Channel 9, from the most recent to navigation through past events, shows and series.
