    Somebody explain to me… I love Falcon… but always fall back to original twitter app due to push notifications and ability to get notified that a certain person just tweeted….. Always fast and reliable. On any other app it takes a long time to get notifications… maybe im doing something wrong here.. educate me.

    • I use Falcon Pro on my tablet and the official app on my phone because of exactly what you mentioned. The push notifications are a necessity for me, but until Twitter can come out with an official app that supports tablet layouts, I’ll need something else on that.

    Been using Falcon Pro for a while now and really happy with the quick releases and bug fixes. The developer is quick on bug reports too.

  • This is my favorite Twitter client. I even like it better than Tweetbot for iOS. Not to mention it has tablet view and I don’t have to buy two versions.

  • Phil Nolan

    I don’t know if I’d say everyone’s favorite, but with TweetDeck being killed off (again) it does look like a fairly decent alternative. It seems risky though, paying for a Twitter client when Twitter keeps hating on third parties. Who knows if it will be here tomorrow?

    • Martin Nilsson

      If we play with the idea that the app is $10 and that Twitter kills it 12 months after you bought it, that’s less then a dollar a month for the improved experience. Even if you only get to enjoy it for 6 months that’s about $1.50. Not at all expensive if you ask me. And the app isn’t even $10 so what do you have to loose? =)

    Still the best Twitter client in my opinion. Keeps getting better with every update.

    • EvanTheGamer

      I wholeheartedly agree! I was skeptical at first, being a long-time TweetCaster user/fan and all; didn’t want to switch to any other twitter app, but when they reset all twitter tokens, I went ahead and purchased Falcon Pro. And then I simply never looked at any other twitter app on Android again. I was sold.

      • dylan84

        I downloaded it when the app was first released in the play store months ago. It’s actually the app that got me using Twitter again.

        Same here. Used Tweetcaster Pro for as long as I can remember. Tried out Falcon when it first launched and haven’t looked back. Keeps getting better and better. One of my top apps.

      • John A

        Similar to me. I got it at the beginning to see what the fuss was about, but kept on using Tweetcaster until they got rid of the ‘view replies’ option. I then went back to Falcon pro and like you, i have never looked back since.

  • Falcon is definitely a top 3 app for me; Love the progress so far and hope it continues to be one of the top Twitter clients
