Falcon Pro Updated With New Font, Action Bar Placement Settings and More

falcon pro

Today, Falcon Pro got a nice update to version 1.9. Inside, you will find a brand new font (although it’s still Roboto-based), position holding for lists, and the awesome option to set the action bar on the bottom of the display. Along with the new features, there were some bugs that needed squashing, including the one where the DashClock extension wasn’t refreshing. Consider it now squashed.

Falcon Pro has become a dominant 3rd party Twitter app and you still haven’t picked it up, you should do so soon.

What’s New:

  • Sexy font (still Roboto based)
  • Position holding in Lists
  • Load up to 1000 tweets / refresh
  • Option to set the action bar on the bottom. Good for large screens.
  • Load older tweets
  • Inline Droplr previews
  • Option to set a different refresh rate for mentions/interactions
  • Options to control cache

Let us know if you are using Falcon Pro or still can’t give up the stock Twitter app.

  • I have been considering checking out Falcon Pro, but cannot bring myself to give up Seesmic. I’ve been using it for years now and always end up going back to it.

  • Jordan Debow

    Still no multi account??

    • I was hoping for that as well. As a teacher, I desperately need “multi-account”. My single favorite feature of Falcon Pro is how quickly you can get to Lists. That feature alone has kept me using this App. Great job Devs!

  • Gary Keeler

    The only real thing I don’t like is that you have to pay for both this and the widget. Seriously he should combine the two.

    • faganm24

      I don’t know what you are talking about. The widget is there.

      • Gary Keeler

        Just double checked and you are correct. It must have been in a update I missed somewhere along the way. When it first launched it didn’t include a widget so I was left using falcon widget and then a second twitter client. Now I can drop down to just one. Thanks for the nudge.

        • faganm24

          No problem. It looks like some of his legacy apps have evolved into Falcon.

  • Yeah Tweetcaster…..! Actually I have both Falcon Pro & Tweetcaster on my phone. Falcon Pro is ok, but I just can’t give up Tweetcaster. Um…and what native Twitter app?

  • How is this on a tablet? Also, does instagram pics load in the app?

  • Lucas Tetrault

    The only thing that Falcon seems to have over the native app in my opinion is that it shows pictures in the feed rather than with the actual app it has to be clicked. Other than that … the native app seems faster to load and doesn’t need “refreshed” as frequently as Falcon …

  • jmsbwmn

    I’ll be honest. Neither the name of the app nor the icon clue me into this being a Twitter client. If not for this post, I’d have never known. I also don’t spend a ton of time on Twitter, but when I do, I use the official Twitter app. I haven’t found anything about it that bothers me, and I don’t need any functionality that it doesn’t provide. Oh, and it’s free. 🙂

  • I still use the native Twitter app just because I don’t use twitter like most of the DL crew to get news. But Flacon Pro does look really nice, just no need to own it.

  • David Caccavo

    I would like to try it based on your/reader recommendations but I’m afraid of the token limit issue coming back again.

  • Malcolm James II

    Still one of the top 3 apps on Android!!

  • EvanTheGamer

    I use to use TweetCaster but now I use Falcon Pro! It’s just an overall awesome twitter app; one of the very best the Play Store has to offer!

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Not liking the new font, or that weird divider for tweets/mentions/DMs (speaking of those buttons, they appear more spread apart, so now each button is harder to reach, but that change could just be in my head). But other than these relatively minor complaints, it’s a good update.

    • Jonathan Bunch

      Move the buttons to the bottom! That’s much easier to navigate.

      • TheFirstUniverseKing

        Yeah, I actually do have them at the bottom, but it’s still a stretch to reach that leftmost button on my Note II. But it’s not a big deal, just a minor inconvenience.

        EDIT: Actually, I think just rearranging the order will solve this problem. Make it DMs/mentions/tweets. I doubt people check their DMs more than their latest tweets.

  • I’ve tried Falcon before, but always go back to Plume. Maybe one last try.

  • you asked – I post: Falcon Pro one of the best Android apps – period. Great developer/great value – what native Twitter app?

    • AnotherAndroidKid

      ^ This

    • Magistos

      It’s the best I’ve found, period. It’s what I use.

    • I still prefer the official Twitter app. I’m not a fan of dark colors like that.

      • mechapathy

        There’s a light theme as well. Was added in a recent update.

  • ceejw

    He really needs to update the app icon. It looks like a pokemon.

    • John

      I like it. It’s pretty unique looking.

    • JoshGroff

      That’s a bad thing? Pokemon is nostalgic.
