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.
Even though Falcon Pro has long since been pulled from the Play Store after running out of Twitter tokens, the developer continues to build updates to squash bugs and even add new features. Today's update brings Falcon Pro up to v2.1 and includes some much needed options and tweaks.
Carbon is back, Twitter addicts, and it is indeed back in black. The 2.0 revision of the popular Twitter client is like the all-black Charger with tinted windows and zero badges - it's so nondescript that you just can't help but notice it. The updated app is live in the Play Store now, and the token issues that plagued the initial release seem to be absent, at least for the moment. Read More
How did we ever live before the days of PR-run social media accounts for major corporations and CEOs of said corporations randomly engaging in internet sabre-rattling with competitors? This truly is a golden age, and AT&T, T-Mobile, and John Legere reminded us of that fact yesterday, when the three got into it over a disgruntled AT&T subscriber ready to head for pinker pastures. Jay Rooney, the subscriber in question, tweeted the following yesterday around 11AM: Read More
In a series of tweets earlier, HTC offered some insight into the status of updates coming to the DNA and One, hopefully giving some comfort to owners of the respective devices, though updates can never come soon enough for many.
First, HTC addressed concerns over the update to 4.3 for One owners on Verizon, indicating that getting the update cleared with good old VZW would be "a two step process," involving an update for compatibility, and the actual 4.3 update in December. Read More
Every time I try a new non-AOSP Android device, I lament the lack of Google's News & Weather app and its excellent widget. But the latest app from Falcon Pro developer Joaquim Verges might just get me to let go of that standby. Flyne is a news reader in the vein of Press and Flipboard, but it's powered by curated Twitter lists and your own Twitter and Feedly content.
Setup is simple, at least for the free version: select your topics of interest from a wide list, and Flyne will populate your personal news list with authoritative sources for that particular niche. Read More
It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".
This render looks more refined than @evleaks' shot of the black Nexus 5 and, while the front remains black, the new shot makes the white N5 look downright appealing. Read More
If you've wanted to know when the Android 4.3 update is coming to the HTC One, HTC Americas president Jason Mackenzie is the man to follow. It's from him that we first found out about the latest version of Android coming to our favorite aluminum handset this fall, and he was the one who provided more specific ETAs as time went on. Now he's revealed that the Android 4.3 update is scheduled to roll out to T-Mobile HTC One owners this upcoming Monday, the 21st. Read More
