Update: the original Talon for Twitter has reached its token limit, making it impossible for new users to sign in. It has been removed from the Play Store and the source code has been published.

--

Before we start, let's get something out of the way: Talon For Twitter developer Luke Klinker has elected to separate the Android 5.0 version of the app from the previous version. Owners of Talon won't be getting Talon For Twitter (Plus) unless they pay for it.

Talon updates often come with big changelogs, and version 2.6 is no exception. Klinker Apps has managed to cram quite a bit of enhancements into this release. The top items concern changes to the appearance, such as a new app icon, a tweaked compose window, and two downloadable open source themes inspired by the "L" preview version of Talon. These are joined by an "L" Roboto font option under settings that, unlike the themes, doesn't require installing anything extra.

April was a big month for Android apps, especially if you like yours to come directly from Google. We've also got admirable entries from big web names like Dropbox and IFTTT, as well as surprising applications from smaller developers. This is the cream of the crop of Android apps for last month, plus a few honorable mentions, in no particular order.

Good grief, Google, you guys took your sweet time with this one.

Getting too invested in a new Twitter client can be risky these days. There's always the possibility that it won't be updated with the features you want, or bugs might not get squashed to your liking. It may also be awesome and run through its 100k Twitter tokens before being abandoned. Well, Fenix for Twitter might be at least worth taking a risk on. This new app seems to get a lot of things right, and it's only a 1.0 release.

Talon debuted just a few weeks ago and has already become one of the best Twitter clients available on Android. There is even a beta program where the developer is testing out new features with frequent updates. Now that the bugs have been worked out in the beta, version 1.3 has gone live for everyone, and it's packing plenty of new features and improvements.

Talon is the latest third-party Twitter client to fly into the Play Store, and while the competition may be fierce, there's always room for something new to claw its way in and do things a different way. This particular offering comes to us from Klinker Apps, the makers of Sliding Messaging, and prides itself on having superb KitKat integration. This means users fortunate enough to have Android 4.4 can enjoy a Twitter feed that rolls under translucent system bars, functionality that Google introduced in the latest version of the OS that has yet to make its way into many apps.

We went through quite a dramatic back and forth last year when Falcon Pro ran out of Twitter API tokens in record time, but now another client is biting the dust. Carbon for Android, which just recently got its big 2.0 update, has run through all its tokens.

The Neatly Twitter client has been making a small but dedicated fanbase for a while now, though it's been available on Android for less than a year. Last week developer F16 Apps decided to pursue a new strategy, and the various versions of Neatly (Android, iOS, and Blackberry 10) are now free. The previous price on the Play Store has shifted between one and two dollars American.

Neatly includes most of the whiz-bang features of a modern Twitter client, but its focus is on intelligent filtering of Twitter feeds.

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.

It's hard for a Twitter client to make a name for itself with the market so saturated with competitors, but maybe Neatly has a shot. This Twitter client isn't just delivering your Tweets; it lets you sort, filter, and highlight tweets in your timeline so you see more relevant information. This app has arrived on basically every other platform (even Symbian and BlackBerry 10), but the developers have now offered up a beta Android version for you to try in advance of the actual release.
