The long-awaited Carbon for Twitter app landed on the Play Store a few days ago, but some were of the opinion that it wasn't quite finished yet. This happens in software development. Nothing to be worried about. What should cause worry is if problems persist for months or years at a time (*coughGoogleVoicecough*). On that note, it should be very encouraging that the developers have already rolled out an update that includes a variety of bug fixes.
Here is the complete list of changes:
- Notification bug that crashed after tapping
- Repeat Notifications
- Notification bug that crashed app when Avatar couldn't be loaded
- Direct Messages Delete bug wasn't saving changes
- Long press bug on Messages
- Composition Screen Account Selector bug
- User Profile Bio: tapping on Mentions & Hashtags bug.
- Timeline duplicated tweets on concurrent refreshes
- Compose bug that didn't allow tweeting at 140 characters
- Verified & Private badges
- Quick mentions
In addition to the rather impressive list of bug fixes, two other minor new features have been added: quick mentions and verified/private badges. All in all, it's good to see that there is a fair amount of development going into this app. This is a lot to fix in three days. After a lengthy silence while we waited for Carbon to arrive and repeated delays, it's somewhat comforting to know that when users have concerns, they won't necessarily be ignored.
