Back in mid-August, we highlighted a gorgeous Twitter widget called Falcon. There was a lot to like a Falcon as a widget, but it didn't take long to realize it wasn't living up to its full potential - it needed to be a full app. So that's exactly what Joaquim Vergès - Falcon's developer - did. And it looks fantastic.

Simply put, Falcon Pro is probably the best looking Twitter client I've ever seen. The transitions are so smooth, the color scheme is subtle and nice to look at, and above all, the interface is intuitive and a pleasure to use. In fact, I can see myself using Twitter more often thanks to Falcon Pro.

* Double Sliding Menu UI like you've never seen before
* Beautiful Phone and Tablet UI
* Extra smooth scrolling
* Real Time, Expandable notifications
* Super fast internal browser with Instapaper integration
* Offline favoriting
* Tweet Drafts
* Inline preview of Photos and Videos
* TweetMarker support to use on multiple devices
* In-app preview of Play Store links

If you've been looking for a feature-rich Twitter client that's also streamlined, minimal, and easy to use - look no further than Falcon Pro. It'll set you back a dollar in the Play Store, but, in my opinion, it's easily worth every penny. Hit the widget to give it a shot.

    UI looks really slick. Some comments on the play store talk about a few missing features though, so I'll keep watching this for now and give it a shot in a month or so.

    I wish it handled lists similar to Tweetdeck, so I dont have to select them individually but could just keep swiping to the right to skim them in an order I give but I really like the app from playing around with it for 10 min.

      Tweetdeck is what I've always used and likewise wanted similar functionality. But with how it opens tweets and has access to the whole website and responses to nicely I don't mind. Especially since lists are so easy to get to, with only a swipe. Other apps they aren't so easy, so I never liked them. Plume is the only one I can find which has columns like Tweetdeck. But I just don't like it much for some reason. This is very nice and cheaper than Plume's $5 premium if you don't want ads.

    Is there any twitter applications that offer the "interactions" notifications or have twitter locked it down?

    • Sean

      Twitter has that locked down. They were at one point supposed to make that part of the API available, but then they decided to backpedal and try to cut off 3rd party clients completely.

    Purchased it last night from my phone. Play Store is now asking me to purchase it again to install it on my tablet. First time I haven't been able to install a purchased app on more than 1 device.

    • Casey Artner

      The first time I tried to install it (through the play store) it failed to install and auto-refunded me, so I had to re-purchase and it worked on the second go. Thought it was because I had the Beta installed, but maybe something similar happened to you?

      • http://twitter.com/elliotthj91 Elliott HillJennings

        The same thing happened to me when I tried to uninstall the beta but it worked for me on the second go as well

  • Qbancelli

    I'll give it a try

    I've been running this as my daily since the first beta was released on XDA, and I must say I've been enjoying every moment of it.

    And also, the rate at which the developer fixes bugs + implements new features is astounding. If this is any indication as to how often it will be updated in the Play Store, its no doubt a great investment and worth two times what it costs!

    I want this guy to make a launcher, SOOO SLICK!

  • http://twitter.com/Xeratun Xeratun

    I really really like it! I'm very impressed and have been looking for a good Twitter app for my Nexus 10 screen. This easily can be it. Except that it keeps force closing. I'll be using it and suddenly its gone and I'm at my home screen. Its happened a couple times in the 10 minutes I've been using it.

    Does this not come with a widget? Do I really have to get the falcon widget and login separately?

    • Abhigyan Banerjee

      It'll be integrated eventually. That's what the dev said on XDA.

      • http://www.maverickcreative.ca/ Joshua Richards

        Thanks!

  • ScottColbert

    Looks good, but I'll wait til it has multi-user accounts. It's worthless to me without that.

    • Guest

      Bro, do you even read?

  • Nicolás Rezzano

    Just purchased this, it's my first app purchased in the store cause i was really excited, and totally worth it, it has the best UI i've ever seen

  • http://www.maverickcreative.ca/ Joshua Richards

    Hands down, the best twitter client available. Great UX, great design, great job. Can't wait for the widget to be implemented.

  • Drayon

    Looks awesome!
    I would love this app for Facebook

  • Paul Taylor

    Anyone know how you log out of this app? I have multiple twitter accounts to use but confused!

  • cy_n_ic

    That icon looks tough!

  • Matthew Kaufman

    Can anyone comment on how this one compares to TweetCaster? With Tweetcaster i get notifications for when specific accounts tweet instead of whenever there's a new tweet. Makes it super easy for me to keep on top of deals and AP posts.

  • Lim Wee Huat

    Tried the XDA beta too... Damn, It's good.

  • dylan84

    Definitely one of the nicest Twitter clients around. Loved the widget when it was released, and very glad it was fleshed out to a complete app.

    Guys, seriously, I'm sorry but this is stupid. Twitter clearly doesn't support the app, and if you don't like the attitude, get out of twitter. It's as simple as that. People get angry at Twitter but keep using it. And then now the dev is going to "figure out a strategy". WHY? Twitter is not an enemy fighting for territory, it is _the_ territory. They don't want the app, so stop supporting them.
