One of the free twitter clients for Windows Phone, “Peregrine“Â has just been updated to take advantage of theÂ new Windows Phone 8 infrastructure, resulting it much better performance and better integration with the phone.
Of some of the new features is lock screen support, so you can see how many tweets, mentions and messages you have without even unlocking your phone. There’s also support for small, medium and large (wide) tiles as well.
Peregrine continues to have the “pull-to-refresh” feature, which is now much improved in this new release, and quick-glance to see unread mentions and messages without having to pivot to these columns and waiting for them to load. It also continues to remember your last position when you left the app, so you can quickly resume where you left off – this feature has been further improved in this new release as well with a much faster and more consistent resume of the scroll position.
Peregrine has always been free and supported by limited ads, but this new release adds In-App purchasing to allow you to disable the adds for $0.99.
