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…)
Vine, Twitter’s popular short-clip video sharing service that was previously only on iOS, will be available on Android today. For those not familiar, Vine allows you to record 6 seconds of video (with sound) and then share it with the world, much like you do a Tweet. It becomes interesting in the idea that you can pause and continue recording simply by touching and releasing your finger to and from the screen. Current Vine users have created all sorts of 6-second stop motion clips that are highly entertaining, many of which continuously loop. (more…)
The official Twitter app for Android received a hefty update this morning, one that includes a revamped Tweet composer that should make it easier to share photos thanks to quick access to your camera roll. When pressing the gallery button, your images will appear just under the Tweet composer, so that you can quickly choose the images you need or have likely recently taken. It’s a pretty nifty trick.
Users will also find richer notifications, a wider and taller timeline, and notifications when friends join the social network. (more…)
Twitter announced official support for Google Glass this morning.

You can also keep up notifications for mentions, DMs, and Tweets from users you have given that power to. Last, you can reply, favorite, and retweet. (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…)
Hold onto your caps, folks – the Twitter app for Android now has a menu button! Well actually, we should be a bit more specific given this is our business. It’s called an Action Overflow Button. I know, I know, where has this been since the beginning? Either way, it’s there now for easy account switching and quick access to account settings. Go utilize it till your finger falls off. (more…)
Ready to start tweeting from Google Glass? Yesterday, a tweet was spotted that has since been deleted, coupled with the label “Twitter for Glass.” Once news got out, the account was deleted, making it quite possible that no one was supposed to see it.
Adding to the fun, the Twitter account @Mogrooth (minus the Muddler), belongs to a mobile engineering manager at Twitter, Shiv Ramamurthi. Additionally, 3rd party app developers cannot use the word Twitter in the labels, so the fact that “Twitter” is used in Twitter for Glass lends more credibility to the story. (more…)
