Falcon for Twitter, Control Your Twitter Account From a Single Widget

If you’re an avid Twitter fiend like we helplessly are, then be sure to check out Falcon. With this app, you control your timeline and whole account from a single widget, which actually works better than a full app for the most part. With the ability to place it on any homescreen, and even on the lockscreen if you’re running Android 4.2+, you see your full timeline as well as mentions, with options to see your messages, view trends, and also see lists. Why it’s taken me so long to get into Falcon, I don’t know. 

Go check it out on Google Play and let us know what you think down below.

  • Would this be better than Slices? There are so many different Twitter apps out there.

  • Ian

    What phone were those screenshots taken on? I like the app theme

  • Manthas

    Looks cool, but I don’t really see any compelling reasons to switch from Plume, yet. Honestly, can’t think of a specific feature or set of features that would have me switch. Really good job, though, and keep up the awesome work dev! Options are awesome, and multiple high quality options are even better.

  • PalmerAdam

    I really hope this doesnt go the way of the dinosoar like Tweetlanes and Boid

  • Bob

    How do his app icons look like that?

  • Tommy Thompson

    The only thing that bugs me about it is the placement of the User Id names below the tweet. Where ever other application has the user Id above or next to the corresponding tweet. It looks like the User ID belongs to the tweet below, but that isn’t the case.

      FalconPRO (on xda), a full-app version of this, fixes that issue. (It bugged the crap out of me, too in the widget).

      • Tommy Thompson

        Glad I’m not the only one!

  • Justin Schmiesing

    Can someone get me this wallpaper? i love it!

  • Keyan X

    Yea that’s me in the screenshot 😀

    if you spend the $1.99 on the donate version, you also get “tweet from notification bar” and some other fun features. even in the 0.2 beta version of Falcon, i deleted plume and replaced with falcon pro.

  • This same developer is currently working on a full twitter client (Falcon Pro), which all of YOU can beta. Head to the XDA thread to pick up the apk.


    • Teng Taing

      Just downloaded the Falcon Pro beta and its pretty awesome. Too bad it didnt have the Falcon Widget built in, had to download both apps in order to get the widget as well. Either way, goodbye Plume…

      • michael arazan

        Will I hear a Falcon Screech every Time I tweet or recieve a tweet? that would be cool

  • Greg Morgan

    The dev also just released a Twitter app to go with his widget. It’s not in play store, but it’s one of the best clients out there.

    Here’s the link to XDA:


    • Sean Stone

      Agreed with the “one of the best” trying to patiently wait for the 0.3 release

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Installed this last night. Although I don’t use Twitter much I can say that so far this app is excellent. Interested to see what changes will be made once it’s out of beta.

      • Dr_Buttballs

        Not sure why I got a down vote but oooooooooooook.

        • Greg Morgan

          Lol was wondering about that myself…

          • Dr_Buttballs

            Either someone has twitchy hands or I’m just not liked very well. I’m going to go with the latter.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            They’re saying you don’t use twitter so your opinion doesn’t matter.

          • Dr_Buttballs

            It’s the internet, nobodies opinion matters.

        • PhoenixPath

          “Although I don’t use Twitter much”

          Well, that explains it. You obviously offended the TwitGods. :p

    • PhoenixPath

      Been using it for only a day or two. Wish I’d known about it earlier. This is what a twitter client should be.
