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. The social network will allow users to take and share photos directly through Glass with the text “Just shared a photo #throughglass” included. 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…)
If you find yourself to be a Falcon fanboy, then go pick up the newest Pro update available in Google Play. The update brings a brand new fully offline mode, allowing for pics, video thumbnails, and article images to be viewed with no data connection. Now that’s fancy. (more…)
Twitter made their new music service official this morning with an announcement and then release on…iOS. As you can tell, and should be no surprise if you look at Vine, Twitter still doesn’t realize that Android is just as, if not more important than iOS in the mobile game these days. Then again, with iOS you don’t have as many devices to develop for and should be easier to launch with, but I digress. (more…)
