Talon for Twitter Receives Major V6.0 Update, UI Completely Overhauled

A massive update is headed out to users of Talon, at least, for users not already signed up for the beta. Version 6.0 is the label, bringing an overhaul for the entire UI, including the tweet viewer and profile viewer. 

As detailed in the changelog, new features include advanced filtering options, ability to view conversations on a tweet, viewing user lists (as long as they’re public), and more.

The update also brings a healthy portion of bug fixes and improvements, according to the developer. Listed on Google Play, the article viewer has been enhanced, fixes for the YouTube and Twitter video player are included, plus tablet users will see better support and layouts.

If you would like to see these updates ahead of everyone else, and provide feedback to the developer, feel free to join the beta by adding yourself to this group on Google+.

Below is the entire changelo(n)g. It’s quite extensive.

    Is Twitter’s API limit still an issue for these 3rd party apps? I have used Fenix fit a while and love it – just wondering.

  • raazman

    Flamingo is still better.

    Flamingo >

  • Hastekilled

    I still use Flamingo. Not sure I could give it up. Might look into it though.

    • MicroNix

      They’re nice until they hit Twitter’s limit and your app stops working. Never again.

      After leaving behind my last profession 1 year before, i’ve had some great fortune to discover this online site which was a life-saver as for me… They have projects for which people will be able to work on the internet from their house. My most recent paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $4500… Amazing thing about is that the single thing necessary is simple typing skills and having access to internet…Read everything regarding it here >> http://www.wzurl.me/Ouxcpw

    Love talon.

  • Brandon Bain

    It’s Fenix or nothing… official twitter sucks and Talon is a joke.

  • trixnkix637

    I feel like the official Twitter is actually probably the best app. Second only to Fenix. Talon is always a distant third.

      <-I've earned 104 thousand bucks last year by working online a­­n­­d I manage to accomplish that by working part-time f­o­r several hrs /day. I was following an earning opportunity I was introduced by this website i found on-line and I am amazed that i earned so much money on the side. It's very beginner-friendly a­­n­­d I'm so happy that i discovered it. Here’s what I do….

    The Klinkers? No thanks.

    • Cakalaky

      Why that comment?

      • Trooper311

        Why your comment to my comment?

        • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          why comment to a comment about a commentors comment when the original commentor was only commenting to make a commemorating comment?

          • Trooper311


          • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            dude thats messed up. why would you word my comment?

          • Trooper311

            Because I can.

          • Brandon Sobotta

            Written words loudly.

    • I’ve seen a comment like this on nearly every post about one of their apps. I’ve used Talon and one of their SMS apps in the past, and they were fine, but man these developers seem to really have a negative reputation. What did they do?

      (I hope this doesn’t come across as defensive – I don’t know the Klinkers, and I’m genuinely curious why so many people hold negative opinions of them)

  • jbworldwide1

    I got the update a few days ago, and I love it so far. Actually dropped Tweetings for this.

    • Afrayedknot

      Interesting. I use Tweetings right now, I’ve become less than enthused with it. I’d like to try Talon first before paying for it, though.

      • jbworldwide1

        Tweetings has been wonky these last few updates. I was looking for a reason to dump it.
