I would hesitate to call it basic. It certainly is not complete, however, it executes very well and very fast. I think it performs in snap mode better than any programs out there and its handling of embedded content and photos is certainly not basic. I am still using it and have not switched back to Tweetro+ yet. Oh and I like the commonality between it and its WP8 cousin.I was really glad to see it released yesterday. It's basic but functional and quick. Not bad at all for a first release.
