Beezz WP7 Twitter app has another major update in the works

As with several desktop and mobile platforms, Twitter is being out-tweeted on Windows Phone 7. Subjectivity aside, third-party Twitter clients often provide a great deal of functionality omitted from Twitter’s official clients. Such is the case with an independently-developed app that is quickly becoming the go-to Twitter experience on Windows Phone 7 devices. Beezz already provides a host of great functionality left out of the official Windows Phone 7 Twitter app, and a major update will add nearly all of the core features the app is currently missing. New features in version 1.2 of the Beezz app include:

  • List support
  • Option to open app directly to main timeline
  • Favorites
  • Saved Searches
  • Old-style Retweet support
  • New live tile, which will include timeline, mentions and DMs
  • Picture Hub integration
  • Internet Explorer integration (tweet a URL from within IE — very handy since there is no copy/paste yet)
  • Bit.ly integration
  • Conversation view

DevMob, Beezz’s developer, hasn’t yet given a time frame for the new update, but we can asure you that the team is hard at work prepping the new release. Hit the jump for a quick teaser video highlighting a few upcoming features and in the meantime, version 1.1 of the Beezz app is currently available in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace for free.
