Robird Twitter client brings Holo UI, push notifications and more to Android

As you all know, there is no shortage of popular Twitter clients for Android. In our quest to find some of the better options available we've stumbled on a new Twitter client called Robird. It was available in beta on XDA for a few months but lately has hit the Play Store full of features, push notifications, and is getting updated at a rapid pace. We've been loving Robird for the past week so check out our video review below.

Smartphone users check Facebook 14 times daily according to report

It's pretty safe to say we all have a problem. According to some new reports and surveys coming out this week, if you own a smartphone you probably check Facebook at least 14 times a day. And that is on average. Meaning many users check it far more than 14 times daily. Oh and this is just on a smartphone, this doesn't even count computer habits.

One misguided tweet takes on a life of its own

You never know what's going to happen in the land of Twitter. Adria Richards's story is a prime example of that. At the PyCon Technology Conference last week, Richards decided to publicly shame two developers who were bothering her with their sexual jokes.

Falcon Pro Twitter app price increased to $132.13

The Falcon Pro app recently reached the 100k user token limit enforced by Twitter. This means bad news for those who may have been considering a purchase, but perhaps more important here -- it also places the developer in a bit of a sticky situation. You see, the developer wants to keep the app available for current users, but also needs a way to discourage new users from making the purchase.

Tweet Lanes Twitter app goes open source

The Tweet Lanes Twitter app originally launched back in July 2012. The interesting part here, the app launched with quite a bit of hype, both from the developer and from the users. The app touted itself as being "Pure Twitter" and "Pure Android" and there was little to disagree with as it was a solid app. The bad news arrived later on when the developer, Chris Lacy, decided to stop active development on the app.
