After a short beta period, notable Twitter client Falcon Pro has gotten its big update to version 2.0. The headlining feature in this update is the new multi-account support, but there are a few more goodies in there.

When I took a look at the beta recently, the multi-account support was already working flawlessly and the new UI looked great. I am noticing that the layout of the account switcher has been tweaked to allow you to tap on the profile pic to access your account. That was busted in the beta. Be aware, as of this posting the screenshots haven't updated in the Play Store, but the ones in this post are from the new UI. Here's the full list of changes:

  • Multi Account Support
  • Flat design UI
  • Black Theme
  • Option to Swipe between columns (Android 3+)
  • Transition animations (Android 3+)
  • Bigfixes and improvements

The update will go through fine for regular users, as well as those in the beta program. It appears to be essentially the same as the beta app, which was very stable. So go and get it.

      I have comparisons in the beta preview. It's not a huge difference, but they are different.

    Sleek! I love dark apps :)

      Same here, I wish all of Google's apps came with a Holo Dark variant.

        They do with the right theme ;) that is if you are rooted and running custom aosp roms

        • firethorn

          You're right, of course. I did install/flash inverted apps sometimes but those always end up annoying me when official updates are rolled out and I have to revert and/or look for updated inverted versions manually.

          As I run AOKP on my N4, I have tried a few themes as well - but in the end always returned back to the stock JB one because there was always something i didn't quite like with any of the ones I downloaded. Any recommendations for themes I might not know but should check out?

          So yeah, generally I agree with the notion "if you don't like how Android works, make it work as you want it to". But I still wish Google would simply give us that option by default. Add a system-wide preference setting and I'd be insanely happy. :)

            This one will black out a lot of apps. Calendar, calculator, settings, etc. Its an amazing theme the way he did it. So small yet does so much

          • firethorn

            I think I tried this and BlackedOut, bought Black Infinitum Theme. Not 100% sure about the one you linked though, so I may try it again.

            I see it was last updated in November though, won't there be issues with all the updated Google apps of the last weeks?

    i brought falcon app on the launch day, but i really doenst like the design.. so i ended never used.. to much padiing, 2.0 is better but theses twit headers still look ugly and wasted space to me..

    oh.. and that icon.. its a no no..

  • Booyabobby

    Not crazy about the flat design. Black theme is always welcome.

    Given the token limitation Twitter put in place can new users of Falcon Pro actually get access or is it a waste of money and time?

    • Tony Sarju

      Falcon reset all their tokens a while ago forcing all active users to re-sign in. Once this was done it freed up a lot of unused tokens.
