    Pretty good app. The only twit.tv app on Windows Phone that does what it says. My problem with it is the large amount of battery drainage when using the app. Additionally you have to back out of the app with the back button. If you swipe or use the x to close it, the sound still plays in the background. Hopefully these bugs will get worked out.

    Great Twit App! I downloaded on my Windows 8 tablet also and the Skydrive Sync feature between the two Apps is great!

    It's a pretty good app, it remembers where you left off in the podcast, you can slide the timeline to your favorite position, and (so far) it plays without stuttering. Wish they would make a more generic podcast/netcast app with the same technology.

    Best Twit App I've found on Windows Phone. Impressed!
