It’s 2017 and there’s still no shortage of 3rd-party apps for Twitter on Google Play. Leading up to this point, there has been drama, with some apps falling victim to the services’s old hostility for 3rd-party development. Remember the finite amount of user tokens and all that crap? Yeah, thankfully, that all seems to be fading away.
As for the choices, there are plenty of good ones, and we’ve written about pretty much all of them. You have the stock Twitter app (which has improved vastly over the years), Fenix, Flamingo, Falcon, Talon, and many others. Each has their own set of features, and you can’t exactly go wrong with any of them. It’s all user preference.
So, the question is, which do you use? And before you go say, “I’m so cool, I don’t use Twitter,” get outta here with that. Twitter is amazing and if you aren’t already, follow us, duh!
Twitter clients are a dime a dozen, but the new Flamingo beta app on Google Play has us pretty excited about its potential. Even with Twitter making its Material Design UI refresh official for all Android users, it’s never a bad thing to test the waters. If you have been hesitant to try any 3rd-party Twitter clients, such as Fenix or Falcon, Flamingo might be a good one for you to start with. If you happen to consider yourself a 3rd-party Twitter app expert, then you definitely need to try Flamingo.
While still in beta, having used it most of this morning, the app is insanely stable and full of working functions. For example, there is an entire theme manager built into the app (included is a theme that looks as if was handcrafted for Droid Life), superb Night Mode with time functionality, as well as a comprehensive notification settings menu.
