Hey guys, there's a lot more into that. We had setbacks with our code base, and a bit of complications here & there that we're trying to resolve thus our frustration. Based on our code base and the performance of the current app(we have been criticized for the performance on a few occasions including reviews of Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan 2 both on The Verge website and we really need to step it up and produce a better performing app.
With WP8 days approaching it would be a better decision to start over with WP8 and Win8 since the team has changed too.
We're still looking at ways that we could tackle this. We should have something to announce in a bit.

That's good news, dot1ne. I have complained myself about the performance issues with Carbon, even though I think it's the best client out there in both functionality and looks, and gladly paid for it. It's good to know that you're just waiting for WP8 to get it going again rather than giving up in favor of other platforms.

Seriously - you have been promising an update for ages. Still waiting for it.
Meanwhile rowi, mehdoh and even twabbit have surpassed Carbon in terms of usability and speed by FAR.
If they manage to get fast code running you can do it too.
If you decide on dropping WP7.x support I can't be an advocate for CarbonWP any longer. I was really REALLY in favor of your app because of its interface - but dropping the support now because you can't get your code together is just a huge disappointment.
When CarbonWP came out, I gladly paid for your app without even testing it before.
I hope you are happy with that money because you almost fixed NOTHING for that and now you even plan on pulling it altogether.
I, and I'm sure a lot of other users, are not going to fall for that for a second time.

You guys are scum. You give devs a bad name. You admit your app is sucks and yet you don't have the common decency to remove the app from the marketplace. You KNOW you're not supporting the app anymore.
DO NOT SUPPORT THESE DEVS! THEY WILL THROW IN THE TOWEL AND STOP SUPPORTING THE APP WITHOUT A MOMENTS NOTICE!
Damn, it's actually a pretty darn good app. WTH. With push notifications and more retweeting abilities, I'd even put it above Plume, which I didn't think was possible. Oh well, my negative review has just been posted on the windows marketplace.

I normally don't mind paying for apps. I think hard working devs deserve the pay. But when crap like this happens, it makes me want to get on the "all apps should be free" wagon.
I really hope WPC will do an article on this, maybe we can get some official answers for these devs.

If support is being discontinued, they really should update the information on the app in the store.
But leave it there in case someone really wants to keep using it and they have to reset their phone for some reason.
I'm disappointed since it was my Twitter app of choice. I've been going back and forth between Gleek and Rowi now. Each have their strong points and weak points.

The app is in the marketplace promising "new features". It works but doesn't have push and some other features that a lot of other twitter apps have. Push was said to be something that's coming in the next update. Well, there's not going to be a next update.
Also, let's say twitter changes something to their API, which they do quite often, and the app stops working. What happens.
