Review: Beezz by Yoozio
Published: Jan 15 2011
If you were born in this century you most likely know what Twitter is, and if you are reading this you may want it for your Windows Phone 7 device. Well, read on to find out about one of the best clients available so far on the Marketplace.
Beezz is a product of the French developer DevMob and - despite the availability of the official Twitter client ever since WP7 early days - it is considered by many the best app of its kind. It has a fresh, dynamic and user-friendly interface, and it lets you use most of the functionalities available on Twitter's website. In our tests, it seemed to also perform slightly faster than the official Twitter client app.
A couple of awesome features it offers are LiveTile and Push notifications for @-mentions and Direct Messages (and they work pretty good!), even if LiveTile shows the number of new messages in your timeline, while we'd rather see only mentions and DMs, just like Push does.
After a couple weeks of usage we had to download the app again from the Marketplace, as it was constantly crashing on launch, but we don't feel like blaming the app, as it could have been due to a faulty test device or installation.
All in all, Beezz is a GREAT starting point for a Twitter client, and its price-tag of USD0 (yes you read that right, it's FREE) makes it pretty much perfect. We hope to see some more features implemented in future updates, such as saved searches, 'old-style' retweeting, and the ability to switch themes or use a custom background.
If you're a fan of Twitter or just want to try out the service, get Beezz NOW.
