Although the Windows Phone market is relatively small, it is growing steadily. Ovum Research expects Windows Phone to round out the top 3 smart phones worldwide, competing with Apple for the #2 position by 2016, and Windows Phone 7 increased sales in Europe by 18% from last year, and 100% from Q3 to Q4.
With the recent release of the new Windows Phone, we updated Seesmic to take advantage of Mango specific features. Specifically, you’ll find Pin to Start, Live Tiles, Support for Fast App Switching, a revised background, and some new UI enhancements.
Updated UI for Home and Search: Following Microsoft’s UI Guidelines: We removed buttons from the home panorama and placed them instead in the app bar.
We removed the search field in the panorama and placed it in the app bar, updating the panorama screen.
Implementation of Live Tiles: Similar to shortcuts, users can pin a handful of Twitter feeds (including Home Timeline, Replies, Direct Messages) to the start menu. Live Tiles also include a notification when a user receives a message.
Fast App switching: When a user presses and holds the back button, he can move to another app. The support for this feature includes keeping the application active when a user moves back without restarting the application.
What else? You’ll notice minor changes and enhancements throughout the app, but don’t take our word for it. Download it now!
