Falcon Pro Updated to Version 2.0.5, But Don’t Go Looking on Google Play

falcon pro android

For those not following, Falcon Pro was recently removed from Google Play by its developer, because Twitter apparently shut the app down. With Twitter not allowing the app to generate any new user tokens, having customers buy the app and then not being able to use it didn’t make much sense.

The developer found somewhat a workaround for this, hosting his own site now where everyone that either purchased the app already or wants to use it can download it for free. In addition, the developer also found a sneaky way around Twitter’s token limit, which may or may not have been fixed by Twitter now. Either way, there is a new update for the app, bringing some new features and fixes which everyone is welcome to go download. 

Inside the app, there is now offline access for your favorites, as well as auto-preloading tweets that you favorite for offline viewing. To see the full changelog, we have it posted down below.

What’s New:

  • New – Offline access for Favorites
  • New – When you fav a tweet, the link gets automatically preloaded for offline reading
  • New – You can now choose between ViewText or Instapaper for the mobilizer service (under User Experience settings)
  • Fixed – scollablle (Tato Note: scrollable?) custom login for small devices
  • Removed – Google Play previews (new play store design broke it)
  • Removed – Lucky patcher check (no point anymore)
  • Other fixes

    Not sure if I’m completely missing it or what. But how do you actually update the app now?

    This is my favorite applications. Big fan!!!!

  • wes

    this may have already been discussed, once you sideload the app, does it automatically update?

    • NoneOfYourBizzness

      No. The dev will post the link to the download when the app is updated. Real simple.

    “which may or may not have been fixed by Twitter now”

    I believe the only “fix” is if they legally force Falcon Pro to stop distributing the app. The only alternatives are for them to disable the 3rd party API, or make it difficult for new Twitter developers to get a key.

  • CapnShiner

    This whole drama between Falcon Pro and Twitter is ridiculous to me. Why does Twitter even bother having an API at all if they are going to prevent developers from using it? What difference does it make to them how someone uses Twitter? I don’t see how they can make more money from people using the official Twitter app vs 3rd party apps. It’s the same content. The official app is free. So what’s their reason for it? Is it simply jealousy because 3rd party devs can build a much better Twitter client than Twitter can? This whole thing would be a non-issue if the official Twitter app was anywhere near as good as Falcon Pro. Twitter’s management needs to pull their heads out of their asses.

      Twitter wants a cut from the developer’s I’m assuming, some type of tribute for their services. They don’t like the devs making money off of their product and are limiting them from doing so

  • hoosiercub88

    I only used Twitter because I really liked using Falcon Pro, nothing against FP or the devs but I shouldn’t have to go around the market to use this app. I paid for it once upon a time and now I can’t even use the version I paid for to get updates automatically from the market. This is Twitter’s fault.. but this is a frustrating experience for end users. As a result I no longer use FP or even Twitter except in a web browser.

  • Nicholassss

    Why is all of this a thing? twitter should be stoked that so many people are using their site and be greatful theres other ways for people to access it.

    • napes22

      I wonder the same thing. There are so many applications out there, why is this one being targeted? Unless it’s been so popular that Twitter can’t keep up with it.

  • I-Troll-U

    I finally just dumped Twitter… I refuse to use their official app and I’m not going to deal with the games of cat and mouse that they will force 3rd party developers into. It really sucks this apps developer has to go through what he has gone through to provide twitter users with an A+ Twitter experience.

    • Kane

      Take two minutes to get back on Twitter…they spam me with that crap and its not cool. I rejoined with a new nick and it said I followed people too quickly and marked me as a spammer and blocked my account. The irony. I proved I was human and 2 weeks later they reactivated my account but its basically dormant.

  • Ryan

    Thanks DL! I know these trolls dont know respect but many of us do

  • YOU MAD BRO

    Relax Bro !

  • Qbancelli

    This is old news. I installed it early yesterday.

    Someone needs to wake the f up!

    • SpikedRed

      Seriously DL, I rely on you for IMPORTANT information like this. I’ve given you TONS of visits since you started, and this is what I get?

      • Pedro

        Just out of curiosity, exactly how many visits are in a ton?

        • ton

          2000 pounds worth.

      • Ryan

        Then start your own damn website. Jeez some ppl idk how half of these ppl survive.

      • CapnShiner

        And you have spent exactly how much money to do so and you have contributed how many exclusive tips? I’m guessing none. DL doesn’t owe you anything. If you’re not happy with it, there are plenty of other Android-related sites on the web.

    • JamesU513

      you mad bros? Seriously, there are more important things in the world of android than this update and it’s only the next day!!!

      • SpikedRed

        Which is why someone like you doesn’t understand the relevance of the post. Especially because of the token use.

        • JamesU513

          OK, here’s something relevant…just updated it fine, no token issue.

          • SpikedRed

            Good for you. No token issue here either. When you expect however to be an authority at posting the latest and greatest information, and you have posted about the same topic in the past, you might want to keep up to speed on things…

          • JamesU513

            Did you leave DL a tip that there was an update? If not, then you’re not helping your own cause.

        • Pedro

          If it’s such an important issue for you, maybe YOU should spend some effort tracking it down. Don’t blame someone else for taking the weekend off.

          My gawd, the entitlement of some…

    • asdfasdf

      They’re busy looking for a random smartwatch news blip to post.

    • JamesU513

      Did you leave DL a tip that there was an update? If not, then you’re not helping your own cause. Wake the f up!
