I bought the pro version and while I like it, I wish I could have the time lines of both accounts on the screen at the same time.

As far as the functionality of this app is concerned, it is possibly the best out there ... but ... because I am vision impaired (due to pigmentary glaucoma) I have to use a high contrast setting on my Windows 8.1 system ... MetroTweet has no high contrast/night or font size/style/weight settings ... Because of this all characters are yellow on a white background making it impossible for me to read, and therefore, totally useless ... If, and when, Metro Tweet tests and fixes this problem I will not be able to use it or recommend it.

I use Macs and iOS devices most of the time, which have a ton of great Twitter clients available (Tweetbot being my favorite), but wanted a Twitter client on my gaming PC too, so I gave MetroTwit a try. It's sad that the Windows side of things is so feature poor, if this is (supposedly) the best 3rd party Windows client. No read position syncing. In fact, it can't even remember where I left off on it, and constantly jumps to the top of my timeline when I switch back to it. About all it has going for it is stability and, like other 3rd party clients, doesn't show promoted tweets. Given that it keeps losing my place, though, I think I'll just read tweets on my iPhone while using my PC.

When it updates the feed jumps and I lose what I'm reading then have to scroll back to where I was.

This app is almost awesome... great interface, and when it works, it's fantastic, but it errors all the time, needs to be closed and re-opened to get updates, no longer crashes out when you click a tweet which is a nice feature ;-) the timeline jumps all over the show, and I get tired of scrolling, and then scrolling again, then again, then getting an error. I want to love you MetroTwit, but you're pushing me away!

I tried adding two different twitter account. Neither one will load. I have tried removing the accounts, re-adding them, restarting the app... nothing will get this app to work.

It seems to have everything you could want. But isn't cluttered by anything that you don't. Just wish it would show updates when in Desktop view. Customization on what it would show while in that view would be doubly great. But that's just me being picky. Still give it 5 stars!

Love the metro style and the simplicity, but the error message makes me crazy. It keep saying "Error loading. Tap to retry" though my internet connection is fine. Fix it!

This app is great. From the auto updating timeline, to the WONDERFUL use of animation. that doesn't come short in any areas of usability like honestly most apps on the windows store do. This is probably the best example of what a good windows 8 app looks like.
BUT the huge killer to this app is not being able to favorite without clicking the tweet and going fullscreen on a single tweet. Yet there is a retweet button on the bottom bar. There is plenty of room for a favorite button and I'D REALLY like to see one, it would make this app a whole lot better.
Stream does not load. Would be attractive graphically, if it functioned.

Kudos... All mentions and activity is updated in time.. but just a feedback, could you implement something like the ability to resize pinned column? that would be great... overall, its an awesome client! :)
Love the look and feel of the app. Only twitter app that I no of that's been updated to 8.1, but too buggy to use on a daily basis.

The Application does nothing after selecting sign-in.

It's been super unstable that last several times. I'm using something else currently but will try again after future upgrades--hopefully soon. Update after a month: still unstable, will probably uninstall soon. July '13 Update: reinstalled the new improved version and it seems usable now. Comparing to Rowi and Gleek currently. No dark theme?

The app has a great interface and layout for multiple columns, custom search columns, user only columns, and inline pictures. The last update seems to have fixed my concerns with scrolling--or at least they are a lot less apparent.
I bought the app. Worth supporting the ONLY good twitter app in the market.

It's beautiful, smooth, fast. Really pleasant user experience. But it just crashes randomly with no real rhyme or reason. There's an offer to upgrade to Pro, which I would do in a heartbeat if it was stable. Instead it looks like I'll need to try some other app experiences. Plus, oddly, the upgrade link doesn't work because it appears there's no MetroTwit Pro in the app store.
Needs total reformation of app. Crashes all the time. Scroll does not work properly. Touch is not neatly responsive.

The automatic synch is a royal pain. It makes the stream jump to the top when I'm trying to scroll through history. There should be an option to manually synch. Otherwise I find it unusable.

So much nicer and faster than the official application. Looks better, is faster, has more functionality. Really not sure why I has the official app for so long... Works great snapped, or full screen.
The app always showing "Error loading. Tap to retry." while taping it will just reshow the same message. There's no resolution since the app was launched.

great app .. works very well ... keep up the good work

If you click ... in any tweet in the timeline the app crashes. Otherwise working nicely now-a-days.
Disconcerning that I previously uninstalled yet this app could login to my Twitter out of the box. I though Win8 apps were sandboxed and safe.... #NotCool

Can't add personal account. Support is non-existent. Buy at own risk.
Stopped showing tweets. Scrolling still a problem

A fantastic design that just fits into Windows 8.

Doesn't get anywhere close to marching its description. Awkward, balky, and error-prone. Too bad, really. Seems to have a lot of potential.
