Falcon Pro Petitions Twitter

falcon pro androidFalcon Pro was one of the top Twitter apps for Android, offering far more robust features and expandability than the stock client. It has essentially been taken out of commission, however, due to a Twitter rule restricting the number of user accounts.

As such, developer Joaquim Vergès has created an online petition asking Twitter to extend what is known as the token limit (these give the developer access to Twitter).

In the interim, Vergès has raised the price of Falcon Pro to $132.13 in order to dissuade others from buying it. The reason? In order to maintain the application with updates for current users it must stay in the Google Play store. However, more buyers would only further the problems – so along with the excessive price is a warning to potential buyers to not purchase the app.

Vergès told The Verge that he has been unsuccessful in asking Twitter to change it

“They refuse to extend the token limit because Falcon doesn’t provide any features that their app doesn’t have already,” he told The Verge. [Read more…]

Falcon Pro is Top Android Twitter Client

The official Twitter app for Android has long languished behind its iOS counterpart. Instead of waiting for it to catch up, invest $0.99 in Falcon Pro. It is the app Twitter should emulate as it more deeply applies Android design principles with more a more powerful feature set.

The biggest downside is it currently does not support multiple Twitter accounts. For those who manage an account for their business, blog, or other social medium this will be disappointing. Nonethless, given the rapid development pace I would expect to see such a feature soon. [Read more…]

Chat With Your Main Squeeze in Pair

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to rekindle some romance, consider Pair. The app for Android and iPhone is designed to be a communication tool just for couples.

In fact, everything about Pair screams “cute.” But don’t let that stop you if cute isn’t your thing. Pair adds some fun and creativity to communicating with your significant other.
