So, Carbon isn't quite the Twitter powerhouse you were hoping for. No worries: the old Android standard Plume is still rolling along. The app gets a major update today, after being tried out by beta testers for a few weeks. Plume 5 adds the standard bug fixes and performance enhancements, plus a much-needed visual refresh of its homescreen widget (something that Carbon lacks, and Falcon can't do without a separate app).
The widget is a lot more useful in its latest incarnation, thanks to a column system that allows you to embed up to three Twitter feeds. You can choose between different user accounts, replies and mentions, or even a Facebook feed.
