Carbon Coming to Windows Phone 7

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Carbon, the awesome Twitter client for webOS, is heading for Windows Phone 7.

Carbon is an excellent Twitter app, and despite having a whole load of competition on webOS, is probably the best of it’s kind on the platform. Utilising a gorgeous interface where you simply swipe through your timeline, mentions and DM’s the most striking thing about the client has to be it’s speed.

Tweets load up almost instantly, and timeline refreshes make other apps look slow in comparison, and the fact that the app is gorgeous to look at is just the icing on the cake.

We only have one screen of the Windows Phone 7 version, but it’s apparent that the WP7 version looks a lot like a big screen adaption of the webOS app, which is particularly impressive when the developer has said that this project has been built from the ground up and shares none of the code of the webOS version.

The combination of the gorgeous Windows Phone 7 OS and Carbon should be a mouth watering one for WP7 Twitter fans, who have not had the best luck with Twitter apps, with only Birdsong really being worth a look so far on the platform.

If the developer can keep the app running as fast as it does on webOS, as well as utilising Windows Phone 7’s unique features, such as Live Tiles then this could well be the number one Twitter app available for WP7.

The developer has told us that the private beta for the app begins in late June, so hopefully the final release will follow soon after.

Look for our review to appear around that time.
