Twikini, the popular Windows Mobile twitter client has just been updated to version 1.0, which is an actual milestone in the application's history. Authors state it has reached final state but it no longer comes free. Or does it? Read ahead!

Here's a quote from the version history for the Official version 1.0 of today, May 20, 2009:
•New: Added Public timeline. Now you can read tweets from total strangers!
•New: Fast account switching - now you can quickly switch between multiple Twitter accounts without reentering the password.
•New: 2 new themes - Lounge and Cool Water.
•Improved: Start up time will be faster because we eliminated one unnecessary Twitter API request for authentication.
•Improved: Finally fixed the auto refresh issues. Auto refresh should work whether your device is turned on or in standby.
•Improved: Added a 2-minute option for auto refresh.
•Improved: The title bar of the tweet dialog will show you which account you're tweeting from (to prevent accidently tweeting from the wrong account).
•Improved: You can now manually delete the image cache from Options.
•Bug fix: Fixed problems with tweets in languages like Thai, Russian, Chinese, Japanese etc. You can tweet in whichever language your device uses (not just English).
•Bug fix: Fixed problems with encoding special characters like ? and % in tweets and DMs.
•Bug fix: ">" and " and <.
•Bug fix: If you were in the Sent Items view, it would not refresh after you sent a DM.
•Lots of performance tweaks and miscellaneous improvements.

As for pricing of the software, the makers divide twikini purchasers into three categories: $4.95 for value shoppers, $9.95 for business users but it's actually offered free to those who own a blog or website and post something about the software (twitter tweets don't count).
