Ever since Twitter introduced a limit of 100k tokens, development of third-party Twitter clients has slowed down drastically. This is a huge blow to Android’s app eco-system which even after all these years lacks a Tweetbot competitor.
This might change today with the release of Talon for Twitter, a beautiful and feature-packed Twitter client for Android, created by the developer of Sliding Messaging — Luke Klinker.
Talon has a beautiful UI with a highly customizable theme engine and even makes use of the transparent navigation bar on devices running Android 4.4 KitKat. The app also has quite a few unique features including ‘Windowed Advances’, Emoji support, In-line interactions, a tablet optimized layout and all the other features that you expect a Twitter client to pack nowadays.
Below is the full feature-list of the app -:
“Talon Pull” to always be listening for tweets and for push notification like functionality!
3 main timelines to – of course – slide between (home, mentions, and direct messages) PLUS 2 more quick sliding pages to give you access to all your links and pictures in one place – we will keep those “Discover” and “Activity” tabs where they belong, out of sight!
