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 Falcon Pro’s creator took to Twitter this morning, thinking that Twitter may have shut him down, and has since unpublished the app from the Play store.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…)
The day was filled with app updates for some of our favorite apps, with the biggest probably coming from Evernote. The popular note-taking app received its “most requested feature of all time,” Reminders. Users can finally add reminders to notes, set alarms, and pin notes to the top of note lists, so that their lives can either feel complete or on the verge of becoming complete at all times. The Evernote update also improved copy and paste, corrected photo orders, improved shortcuts, and improved Japanese support. (more…)
Who doesn’t love a good beta every now and then? If you have purchased Falcon Pro, the third party Twitter app that we have discussed time and time again, then you will now be able to join a recently launched beta program to help improve the application. In the beta program, which is hosted on Google+, there is a feature request list, a section for bugs and also a general discussion area. (more…)
Droid Life Show listeners will know of my frustrations for the 3rd party Twitter app called Falcon, thanks to its lack of multiple account support. Well, as if someone was listening and wanted to put a fat smile on my face today, Falcon is getting multiple account support in the upcoming version 2.0 update. Oh my goodness. (more…)
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. (more…)
