Using the Xbox to Twitter app? Please update your client….

Ok, ok…. so I should have built-in an auto-update, ClickOnce would have been easy enough…. but anyway…. I’ve added many features to the Xbox to Twitter application, including support for only updating when the title being played changes, not showing popups and even a preview of what your twitter updates will look like once they are combined with your template.

To update, uninstall the client using your Control Panel then click on the install link and reinstall. You should see the new and improved options dialog where you can choose to update only on title changes and also turn off the lower-right notifications if you wish.

  1. Does this only show when you’re playing a game, or can it display your achievements? I’d love to automatically post my achievements to Twitter. Not sure I want to post everytime I pop in a game, though I totally see how that could be worthwhile.

  2. Does this application work on vista? I have it installed, but It never seems to send my currently playing information to twitter. On another note I would love a web service for this 🙂 I would use the wonderful API you provide, but I can only run cron jobs every hour on my current host, which wouldn’t be enough to catch events and status on xbox live. Keep up the great work!

  3. Dadditude, I’m hoping it’s just a temporary problem but it’s been happening for quite a while now. I’m hoping we get an update from Duncan soon on what the problem is and when it will be resolved.
