Cool Tool – Twikini from Trinket Software

Check out Twikini - “Twitter on the go from your Windows® phone”.


I recently received my new HTC Ozone from Verizon Wireless with Windows Mobile 6.1 standard edition.


Over the last few days I’ve been installing some apps to make my life a little easier.

I have tried many Twitter mobile apps, but have yet to find one a really like. Simplicity is key but I also want the interface to show me who’s tweeting and give me an easy way to tweetback, retweet or create an entirely new tweet.

Twikini is great! You can find it on the Trinket Software website.


Here’s a quick look at the interface:


Notice you get the pictures of the folks tweeting.


You also have easy access to the menu, tools and different groups of tweets you might need to look at.


Also very easy to tweet.


Here’s a quick summary of the features:

Main Features
  • FAST! Unlike other Twitter apps for Windows® Mobile, Twikini is written entirely in native C++ code for maximum performance and the fastest load time possible.

  • Simple, uncluttered, and customizable user interface. Choose from a variety of themes for the best reading experience. (Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2, Screenshot 3)

  • Post tweets using a full screen editor. Optionally, set your location (either manually, using GPS coordinates, or geocoding) along with your status updates. (Screenshot)

  • Send and receive Direct Messages.

  • Twitpic integration to post photos with your status updates. Select existing photos or click new ones from your device's camera. When reading tweets, view Twitpics inline (without having to open a separate browser). (Screenshot)

  • Read status updates just like browsing a web page. Quickly reply, retweet, favorite, or email other people's tweets. (Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2)

  • Windows Media Player integration. Automatically tweet the song and artist you're listening to. See a realtime feed of other people using it on Twitter.

  • URL shortening services including, TinyURL and Digg.

  • Single download that is compatible with all Windows® Mobile devices - both touch and non-touch.

  • And lots more...

Hope you enjoy the app.

Also, there are some interesting licensing options. I have never seen this before, but I like it. You can blog about the tool and get it for free. Great idea and awesome guerilla marketing tactic. I definitely think this marketing tactic alone is worth a blog post :-)


Thanks for checking out this post!
