The Falcon Pro Twitter app left beta and made its way into Google Play a few weeks back. The app attracted near immediate attention as a contender in the ‘which Twitter app should I use’ dilema. And well, it looks like an update has since landed in Google Play and while it doesn’t contain lots of new features, it does have some notable changes.
In other words, those already using Falcon Pro, fire up Google Play and grab the update. And for everyone else, if you have been searching for a solid Twitter app, now is as good a time as any to give Falcon Pro a look. First things first, this update brings the app up to version 1.3.1 and it remains available for devices running Android 2.2 or later. The app is currently priced at $0.99.
With that out of the way, lets get into the changelog. A few items were removed, a handful of items were fixed and there was one change. As for the removals, those include LED notifications, except for mentions and DMs as well as mentions from timeline view. Though, the latter was done to “solve some position holding issues” and will likely return.
Moving into the fixes and here is where things get nicer. The developer fixed Tweet Marker, the ellipsize links in some lists, the option to mute RT of muted users and the action bar will now stay hidden on tablets. As for the change, the default scale of zoomable pictures was changed. Finally, those who are using Falcon Pro and happen to be interested in what is coming, the developer has an active thread over on xda where you can vote for upcoming features.[via Google Play]
