If there’s one social media platform where Windows users have no lack for apps, it’s Twitter. The official offering is a pretty decent experience that’s been fully updated for Windows 10, but as with tradition regarding our underdog OS, it’s third-party apps from independent developers that shines. One of the best of them, Aeries, from developer Brad Stevenson, has received two cool new features with the latest update, reports Windows Central.
The update, pushing the version number to 126.96.36.199.0, introduces the ability for users to save GIFs and Videos from their timeline. One of the biggest allures of Twitter is the spontaneous videos and creative GIFs that captures just the right feelings of the moment, and with Aeries, you now get to keep them all if you want.
The second new feature is Dynamic Themes. Aeries features themes, with one caveat: the app has to be closed and reopened every time the theme is changed. With the new update and Dynamic Themes, that is no longer the case.
Besides the two new features, the update also brings several stability fixes. The full changelog is as follows:
Aeries, Apps, Microsoft, Twitter, Universal Windows App, Universal Windows Platform, update, Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile
