Twitter faithful on the Windows Store have a few ways to get their tweeting fix. Now, there’s a new one: Tweeten, a non-Windows Store app that serves up a little more than the usual set of features.

The developer’s recent update to version 1.5 has brought spellcheck support for up to 25 languages. While folks from various parts of the world are able to spellcheck now, there’s no word on when the developer will release an update adding more language support.

We’ve been playing around with Tweeten for quite some time and it’s not bad. It is much better than any other Twitter app found in the Windows Store, but a surprisingly heavy download compared to the rest. Then again, Tweeten is packing a lot of features. This makes it more of a competitor to Tweetdeck than anything else.

While the quality is not yet on par with Tweetdeck, that shouldn’t matter much because we believe Tweeten will get there. It might boil down to how popular it is right now, though, with several critics claiming Tweeten as the best Twitter app for Windows 10. While we wouldn’t go that far, it certainly gives Tweetdeck a run for its money.

The interesting thing about Tweeten is that in some ways it feels like a Windows Store app. We say this because of how the options are laid out on the left-hand side, making us wonder if Tweeten’s developers are planning to release a version for the Windows Store seeing as the design foundation is already done.
