Falcon Pro offered a bit of a teaser for the 2.0 update earlier this morning and it looks like you can now download that update. The one catch here, Falcon Pro 2.0 is still available in beta form. Assuming you don’t mind playing with a beta release, this is open and available for those wanting to check things out. The Falcon Pro beta is being handled through the Play Store and requires nothing more than a few clicks and a minute or so to update the app on your device.
You will first need to join the Google+ community setup for this beta and then choose to “become a tester.” Once those are done it is just a matter of the update and posting any feedback or bug reports in the Google+ community. First things first though, lets break down the steps;
- Head to the Google+ community and join using the button towards the upper right — https://plus.google.com/communities/114345443048267259022?hl=en
- Head to the Play Store and click the blue “Become a Tester” button — https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.jv.falcon.pro
- Download the Falcon Pro beta — https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jv.falcon.pro
And worry not, if for some reason the beta release isn’t playing nice on your device — you do have the option to revert back to the current stable release (which at the moment happens to be v1.9.1). One catch that we should mention though, as Falcon Pro is a paid app, the beta program will only be available for those who have already purchased the app. Or for those willing to make a purchase.
As a recap from our earlier post, some of the highlights in the Falcon Pro v2.0 beta include a new “flat design” that is available in three colors. Of course, perhaps the biggest attraction would be the multiple account support. Looking back through the Google+ community and it doesn’t look like there are any issues dealing with stability.
That by itself sounds good for those who may be nervous about leaving an app that currently works well for a beta release. In fact, the few issues we are seeing from the community appear to be minor and more related to design and the overall looks. Specifically, the colors and layouts and things along those lines. With that, those looking to get started need to simply follow the directions we listed above.
