If you're an avid Twitter user, then there's a good chance Falcon Pro is your go-to client on Android. For good reason, no doubt – it's fast, full-featured, and well supported. Today, the dev once again proves the latter, as the app is getting a nice little update to v1.8, which brings a handful of useful features to the app:

v1.8 - 16/04/2013
- New : *Starred Users* Inline Articles preview with offline access (enabled for all Starred Users that you follow)
- New : *Starred Users* Individual notifications (disabled by default)
- New : *Starred Users* Offline access
- New : translations (French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Polish & Norwegian. More to come)
- New : open twitter status links in Falcon
- New : back button now usable in internal browser to navigate
- New : Feedback and bug report form in the app settings
- Improved : Image loading speeds, now with progress bar
- Fix : user autocompletion
- Fix : htc keyboard auto correct
+ Bugfixes

The most notable changes here are, of course, the addition of some new features for Starred Users. As of the newest update, you can now be notified when one of your starred users tweets (perfect for stalkers), as well as have all shared articles saved for offline viewing. The addition of being able to directly open Twitter links in Falcon is also a very nice (and much needed) touch.

The update's in the Play Store now – head below to grab it.

    Good to see this 3rd party Twitter client still breathing after all the mess with Twitter's API token limit. But for how long will this app be breathing?

      They reached the token limit weeks ago, but they restarted all the tokens.

        How many times can they restart the tokens though?

    Nice update, I love Falcon Pro, but still waiting for the most requested feature on their Feature Requests page: Support for multiple accounts...

  • BooBee

    Falcon support is amazing! We can't say the same for Carbon which seems just about abandoned.
