The third-party Twitter client, Falcon Pro, is still quite the fan favorite around here. Those who are still rocking Falcon Pro will be excited to hear that the app is still receiving updates and today’s update brings some really cool features. Falcon Pro 2.1 is live for download now packed with new features and tons of fixes as well. (more…)
With Falcon Pro development currently on hold with the release of Flyne, it appears that the app hasn’t been completely forgotten. After the release of Kit Kat, Falcon Pro users noticed that there were issues with the application’s font and other various bugs, but the developer has now released a fix for Android 4.4 device owners who still rock Falcon Pro.

If you are into Android and Twitter, then you have more than likely heard of Falcon Pro. The app was without a doubt my favorite Twitter app, as it featured a double swiping navigation, beautiful UI, and about as many features as you’ll ever see packed into any app. Unfortunately, it’s time came to a close far too early since Twitter decided long ago that it wasn’t the biggest fan of third party apps stealing its thunder. Falcon Pro’s fate was sealed before it ever launched, which is really too bad. So what has the developer of the one of the most talked about apps of the last year been up to? Making more apps of course. (more…)
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. (more…)
There has been plenty of curiosity surrounding Falcon Pro and the app’s apparent “shut down” from Twitter. Hitting the token limit for a second time, the developer is still quite intent on making users happy, recently launching a new site and secret method for new users to login without a token.
From getfalcon.pro, you can download the Falcon Pro application and any new updates to the app for free, then sideload it onto your device. From there, if you already have a token, all you need to do is simply login and enjoy. If you don’t have a token, the developer claims there is a secret way of accessing the app, but again, it’s a secret. (more…)
Yesterday, only a day after the most recent token reset from popular Twitter app Falcon Pro, long-time users who had not had a chance to update and login to re-claim their token, flooded our inbox and Twitter with complaints of error messages. The messages simply stated that the “application cannot authenticate more users at this time,” which is the same message users were seeing before the reset earlier in the week. So what’s going on? How could all of the 100K tokens be taken up again in a matter of hours? Falcon Pro’s creator took to Twitter this morning, thinking that Twitter may have shut him down, and has since unpublished the app from the Play store. (more…)
Falcon Pro, what is arguably still the most popular Android Twitter client of the moment, reached its Twitter token limit again last night. What does that mean for you? In order to free up unused tokens, the app’s developer has uploaded a new version of the app that resets all tokens. So once you grab the new update (when it goes live), you’ll have to login again with your Twitter credentials to claim a token and continue using the app. (more…)
Wednesday appears to be app update day for Android, as a glance through my Nexus 4 revealed all sorts of new popular apps with new builds available. The biggest lies with eBay, which now has tablet support, an updated selling experience, and a redesigned home screen to name a few off the list of new features. But we’re also seeing updates to WordPress, Blogger, Yelp, Falcon Pro, Adobe Air, and more.
The WordPress update (which was actually introduced yesterday) introduces notifications for new comments, followers, likes, etc. The Blogger update finally brings tablet support to Google’s blogging platform, along with a WYSIWYG editor for existing posts. Yelp’s update brought with it fixes for all sorts of bugs, but some new minor actions as well. Adobe Air and Falcon Pro updates are nothing more than bug and security fixes.
All changelogs can be found below. (more…)
