If you are an Android user and an avid Twitter user, you will clearly know that there is a serious lack of a beautiful yet functional Twitter app for Android. The official Twitter client for Android is nothing but a mess, while Plume, Tweetcaster and other similar Twitter clients look absolutely horrible.
A relatively new Twitter client – Falcon Pro – however, has the potential of becoming the best Twitter app for Android. The app was recently released on the Play Store and has been steadily updated by its developer adding new features and squashing bugs. As a new year gift, the developer released a major updated for Falcon Pro that brings with it some basic features that were missing earlier, bug fixes and some minor new features.
Below is the massive change-log for the update -:
- Added YouTube api integration
- Added option to Enable double tap on tweets
- Added logout button
- Added hide keyboard on RT
- Added report for SPAM
- Added mute mangement from settings
- Added hashtag auto fill when searching for tweets
- Added slider for refresh rates
- New “More Actions” dialog design
- Removed retweets from search results
- Set back mentions of followers in timeline
- Enhanced conversation view with private accounts
- Changed reply icon in profile view
- Faster user profile loading
- Fixed the rotation problem on tweet writer with pics
- Fixed orientation change on main view
+ other fixes
Falcon Pro is among the first few apps in the Play Store that take advantage of the new YouTube API integration from Google. The new API integration will allow Falcon Pro users to directly watch YouTube videos when they come across a YouTube video link on their timeline without the need of opening the YouTube app.
While this update in no way adds all the missing features that Falcon Pro has compared to Plume or Twicca, they still help in improving the overall usability and experience of the app.
