Twitter App Seesmic Moves to Windows

The popular Twitter application from Seesmic is moving away from the Adobe AIR platform and over to Windows where it will use .NET and WPF technologies. The company also announced a Silverlight version is in the works for some sometime next year which will re-introduce the cross-platform capabilities previously offered via Adobe AIR.

Considering that some of the top Twitter applications currently use AIR (TweetDeck immediately comes to mind, for example), you may wonder why the company decided to make the switch. According to Loic Le Meur, Seesmic’s CEO, the app’s users have been asking for a native Windows client for some time. He also said that the new client will be faster and will use less memory than the AIR version.

Le Meur notes on his blog that the new app will also offer some great Windows-only features, including location-based updates and access to several languages in spell checker.

If you’re interested in trying the new version of Seesmic for Windows, you can sign up now to join Team Seesmic, the company’s exclusive band of beta testers. Team Seesmic members get early access to all the company’s releases and are kept up-to-date with emails about the new products and upgrades.
