The Twitcher would be easier to immediately understand if it had a vertical column of windows. This would be a more effective visual representation of the current set of windows than the current single-item "list" of windows, the one with the up/down triangles.

I´m not sure on the exact behavior, or graphics, like whether all apps should have their windows shown or only the selected application.

Either you have a visual cue to signify which window is selected, (probably a larger-size icon like the app icon) or you shift the windows around some way.

I think I would prefer if the apps and windows are sorted alphabetically and don´t jump around at all, in neither orientation. Instead the selection-cue moves. (Unless there are too many apps or windows to fit.)

In spite of the sorted presentation, tapping ctrl-tab would still let you ping-pong between any two windows.

There could be several Twitcher modes, e.g. if some people wanted more Windows-like ping-ponging between, say 3 or 4 windows.
