Increasingly-popular Twitter client Falcon Pro has been updated to v1.4 this morning, adding a slew of new stuff. You can find out what that stuff is in the changelog below.

- Added YouTube api integration
- Added option to Enable double tap on tweets
- Added logout button
- Added hide keyboard on RT
- Added report for SPAM
- Added mute mangement from settings
- Added hashtag auto fill when searching for tweets
- Added slider for refresh rates
- New "More Actions" dialog design
- Removed retweets from search results
- Set back mentions of followers in timeline
- Enhanced conversation view with private accounts
- Changed reply icon in profile view
- Faster user profile loading
- Fixed the rotation problem on tweet writer with pics
- Fixed orientation change on main view
+ other fixes

So, no, there still isn't support for push updates. But you can report spam now, and that's... useful. Anyway, the update includes a fair number of other small functional and aesthetic tweaks (which are quite well-detailed in the changelog), and the usual fixing of bugs. Hit up the Play Store to get it now.

    This is a great little program. Use it daily. I don't like push notifications for social apps so no biggie for me.

    The YouTube integration might be cool.

    As long as Twitter continue to be hostile towards third-party developers, there'll never be push notifications.

    In short: blame Twitter and not Falcon's developer (Joaquim).

    only thing i need out of falcon at this point is multi-user support. everything else is solid.. love this app.

      I highly doubt it will ever gain multi-user support. Each user account auth for a client like this takes up an authorization token, and that means that fewer people as a whole would be able to use the app once it reaches the maximum number of tokens (100,000). That means fewer sales, and fewer happy customers.

      It's a bummer, but it makes sense. Again, blame Twitter - not Falcon Pro.

        The dev log on XDA lists multi-user as a coming feature. So this may not be the case.

    Multi-user is what's stopping me from using the app.

    • ScottColbert

      Agreed. Without Multi-user support, it's useless to me.

    I finally bought it today with a lot of hesitations, but i am happy with it i am just patiently being impatient on waiting for themes for this like the widget had..just need me a nice white theme and i am set.

    I use Plume, and until I read the list of updates including Multi-account support, I can't find a reason to change.

    Does anyone know if all the remaining performance issues (which were originally pointed out by Romain Guy) are fixed? I can't find a changelog that mentions anything re. it.
