When it comes to Twitter clients on Android, Falcon Pro is hard to beat. It's fast, functional, and dang pretty to look at. Aside from that, though, it's also very well-supported, as the dev is constantly adding new features or fixing bugs.

Today's update is no different, as it brings a handful of new customizations to the client, including a "sexy" new font and the option to move the action bar to the bottom:

#v1.9 - 09/05/2013
- New : sexy font (still Roboto based)
- New : position holding in Lists
- New : load up to 1000 tweets / refresh
- New : option to set the action bar on the bottom. Good for large screens.
- New : load older tweets
- New : inline Droplr previews
- New : option to set a different refresh rate for mentions/interactions
- New : options to control cache
- Fixed : back stack behaviours
- Fixed : Dashclock extension not refreshing
- Fixed : position shifting bug
+ other fixes

All in all, it's another well-rounded update to an already-great Twitter client. If you haven't yet jumped aboard the Falcon Pro train, hit the widget below to see what the hype is all about.

    It's a great, awesome update, but the dev got it kinda wrong. In the feature requesting site, he said "bottoms on the tab and swypeable tabs" was completed... But it was only 50%. Swypeable tabs means like official app, swype through mentions, DM, and timeline, not like falcon is.... I hope he adds this for next update.

    • Jeffery Keel

      It's going to be pretty difficult to make it swipe through each column because you swipe left and right to open the sliding menus, so how would you slide to get to the other columns? I'm sure it's possible but incredibly cumbersome and not very intuitive.

      • anerikk

        Did you try Sliding Messaging? If you swype from the edge, it opens the list. If you swype more close to the middle, it changes the message... It's pretty easy to learn... Falcon Pro could do that.

      • Ole Ingeman Christensen

        Maybe it could an option in settings, choosing as it is today or let it work like suggested, swiping between tabs (dm, mention, timeline).
        It's all depends what you uses the most.
        For me it actually will be the best if it was possible to swipe between tabs. I hardly never uses list, search ect.

    • Tíghearnán Carroll

      The dev has said a few times that swipe through tabs won't be implemented into Falcon because there are already 2 ways to get into your mentions/dms, and he wants Falcon to be different from the other Twitter Clients, which almost all of which have swipe through navigation.

    What sets this apart from Plume?

    • Jeffery Keel

      The fact it looks good and works well.

      • xnifex

        would I be able to have multiple accounts signed in? also to have tabs that show different lists that I have created? thanks for any help you can provide.

        I'm actually getting bored of the design, finding it a bit lifeless at times.

        • Ole Ingeman Christensen

          Feels exactly the same. Have had it installed more than once but gets bored and frustrated over the "messy" UI and the lack of themes.
          Every time I find myself going back to Tweedle. It's so clean and packing a lot of great features, such as in line translation, in line youtube player, tweet longer, managing columns, individual UI management ect ect.
          Also Robird is an highly recommendable alternative imo.. :-)

    Still waiting for multi-account support. maybe v2.0? or maybe never because the developer want to keep the toekn count below 100k? because the first thing I will do with multi-account support is to add my other 3 accounts to it.

    • Jeffery Keel

      Do you really need 3 accounts on mobile? That's nonsense.

      • Jeffery Keel

        THERE'S NO SENSE FOR NONSENSE.

  • Mr McScooby

    Very welcome update but it still needs instant push notifications while not on wifi to become my sole twitter client

    • anerikk

      push notifications aren't available, twitter's restriction.

      • Mr McScooby

        I was looking at Robird and that advertises push so i was wondering why Falcon doesn't have it but if thats the case then fair enough

      • Ole Ingeman Christensen

        Yep. But Robird has just now implemented the second best, namely Streaming. It works both on mobil network and wifi.

  • Brandon Bradley

    Doesn't work anymore :(
