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…)
Carbon for Twitter is finally available on Android. Yes, on Super Bowl Sunday, the longest delayed Twitter app in history has been released to Google Play – and it’s free. After a few minutes with it, I can easily say that this is one of the better designed apps we have seen. It’s ultra fast, utilizes gestures for navigation, and includes almost all of the features I look for in a Twitter app. Is it better than Falcon Pro, you ask? I’ll let you decide that. (more…)
The Falcon team released a major update to their app today, which brings a large list of new features and improvements. Included in the update is YouTube api integration, the option to enable a double tap on tweets, a logout button (that’s handy), added slider for refresh rates, and a whole lot more. Get a look at the full changelog down below. (more…)
Over the weekend, Falcon Pro, a Twitter client for Android devices, left beta testing and was released to the Google Play store as version 1.0. Initially launching as a widget, there were enough requests to turn it into a full blown app, that the developer obliged. After spending just a couple of days with it, and while exchanging feature requests with the developer, I can easily say that this is my new favorite Twitter app. (more…)
If you’re an avid Twitter fiend like we helplessly are, then be sure to check out Falcon. With this app, you control your timeline and whole account from a single widget, which actually works better than a full app for the most part. With the ability to place it on any homescreen, and even on the lockscreen if you’re running Android 4.2+, you see your full timeline as well as mentions, with options to see your messages, view trends, and also see lists. Why it’s taken me so long to get into Falcon, I don’t know. (more…)
