Talon for Twitter Plus update: muffling users, activity timeline, etc

If you use Talon for Twitter Plus more than the micro-blogging giant's native app, then you'll be more than happy with this latest major update, which is actually their first since they launched last October. This new version brings new features that you can't find on the main app itself, like muffling some accounts you follow, and a streamlined Activity page that features all your account's activities that the app can gather from Twitter.

Twitter rolling out group messaging, 30-second video uploading

Different social networks are doing everything they can to catch up with each other as they unroll more new features that seem to be in response to other features that their competitors have. Micro-blogging juggernaut Twitter is no exemption as they are currently rolling out new features that include group messaging and uploading videos directly. While these already exist in other social networks like Facebook, Vine, etc, having them on Twitter will be a boon (or bane) to the dedicated user that prefers them over their competitors.

Twitter adds recap of top messages, Tweet translation with Bing

Twitter has got some new tricks up its sleeves to make reading tweets easier and more convenient.

With these two new important features, you won't have to miss any action in Twitter whether you are away or use a different language.

New Falcon Pro 3 released, app rebuilt from the ground up

The Falcon Pro app for Android had been controversial a few years back. The Falcon Twitter client was removed from the Play Store but an update was still released outside the app store bringing offline improvements. The Falcon Pro V2 was first released as a public beta but when it was pulled from the Play Store, we didn't hear about it again until today. Yes, a new Falcon is back and it's not just an updated Falcon Pro 2. It's actually a new app built from the ground up.

Twitter rolls out better picture filters for mobile app

Photo-sharing on social network sites have had to compete with mainly-photo apps like Instagram, Snapchat, etc who had a wider range of options when it comes to editing and adding filters to your precious mobile pics. And with the demise of Twitpic (whose domain and archives were bought by Twitter), sharing pictures on Twitter became a bit more simple but boring. Until now, that is, as the micro-blogging site introduces much better pic filters that of course looks a lot like Instagram.

Twitter to use smartphone apps info to improve your profile

Talon (Plus) for Android 5.0 released, Classic unpublished

It is a bittersweet week for fans of Talon for Twitter from Klinker Apps, who also develops EvolveSMS and Blur Launcher. The developer has just released Talon for Twitter (Plus), a new and improved version of the popular Twitter client, but one that has been designed for Android 5.0 and with Material Design in mind. But sadly, that also marked the death of the Classic version of Talon that works on other Android versions, due to Twitter's rather restrictive authorization token limit.

Vine app for Android updated, new camera features unlocked

Vine is one of the coolest and most efficient video apps you could have on your Android phone, and it was a pity that you couldn’t import existing videos to upload. Well, we have good news – that feature has been unlocked in this new update of the popular video sharing app.

Twitter testing “Buy” button for artists, brands, charities

We all knew this day was coming, and now it’s almost upon us. Yes, pretty soon, we can all go and buy stuff on Twitter. The hugely popular social network has announced that it is now road-testing the “Buy” button that would allow users to make purchases while inside Twitter. They are trying it out on a percentage of US-based accounts and on several artists, brands and charities just to see how the public would respond and how easy and secure it is, as they claim.
