Trinket Software, the makers of the popular Windows Mobile Twitter application, Twikini, have just officially announced that they’re porting their app over to the Windows Phone 7 Series devices. The application is being developed via a partnership between Trinket and Mist Labs, the new company founded by ex-Microsoftie Mel Sampat, formerly a Program Manager on the Windows Phone team.
Like its predecessor, the Twikini app for WP7S lets you read and respond to tweets, replies and direct messages. It will features a portrait mode and landscape mode, too.
The app looks pretty, but some say (check the comments) it too heavily focuses on usernames instead of the tweets themselves. Luckily for those users, there’s already another option available: Seesmic, one of Microsoft’s launch partners, will also offer a Twitter app for Windows Phones which has a more traditional layout.
