Seesmic for Windows Phone 7 finally updated with performance improvements

The Windows Phone 7 Seesmic application that was out on day one and got trashed in several reviews because of its poor performance has been update and is now finally usable. Here’s what’s new in the 1.3 version:

* Timelines are now cached for increased loading speed
* Speed and scrolling improvements, everywhere in the app
* Display of private and verified Twitter accounts
* Added animations and transitions
* Bug fixes

I just tried it out and can assure you that it’s definitely better than the past versions. Scrolling is improved, even though it can still be choppy but I guess that the crappy WP7 ListBox is also to blame here. Unfortunately the application still can’t run under lock which is a shame because every developer should give the user the option to enable this feature. It’s just a pain to have to wait for the application to come out of tombstonning every time the screen turns off. Anyway, it’s still far from perfect but a good step in the right direction. Grab directly from the marketplace here.
