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…)
Everyone’s favorite 3rd party Twitter app, Falcon Pro is receiving a bump up to version 1.8 today, bringing a healthy list of new features and improvements. Most of the bigger additions are for starred Twitter profiles, allowing users to receive notifications every time they create a tweet.
In addition, translations are now available in various languages, image loading speeds have been improved and a ton more. For the full changelog, check below. (more…)
One of the best and most loved Twitter applications, Falcon Pro, has recently hit the 100,000 user mark that Twitter is enforcing on third-party applications. The developer has pleaded with Twitter to lift the limit and got a response of “no.” He has been trying to work around the problem within the past week. With the update rolling out today, a band-aid has been applied to the problem, but not a fix. (more…)
Back in August, Twitter decided that third party clients that replicate its core features (home timeline, direct messages, etc.) were not necessarily great for business going forward. As a business that has a mega-value yet can’t seem to figure out that whole profitability thing, they decided that maybe apps that were being used in place of their official were part of the problem. As such, they set a 100,000 limit for the number of tokens (sort of like an individual user) that can be allotted to 3rd party apps. Unfortunately for upstarts like our beloved Falcon Pro, that limit can be reached quite easily. In fact, last night, Falcon Pro hit their 100K token limit and can no longer add new users. (more…)
Earlier in the week, we first reported on a new app from Android Engineer Roman Nurik called DashClock. Since that report, it seems to have taken the Android app world by storm, prompting all sorts of praise and a hope for future compatibility from other top apps. In case you missed the mention in that article, an API for the app is available for other developers to use to build out “extensions” from their apps that can be used in DashClock.
Today, one of the first major apps to build out such support is Falcon Pro. In today’s update to the popular Twitter app, an extension for DashClock was included. As you can see in the image above, the extension shows you an unread Tweet count that when tapped, opens up Falcon Pro. (more…)
