Talon for Twitter 6.0.0 BETA


Today, I am happy to be releasing Talon 6.0.0 to BETA. This version has been a ton of work and time, but it is well-worth the wait!

With Talon 6 overhauls all of the pieces of the app you use most, from profiles and tweets, to the image and article viewer. Everything is faster, everything is sleeker, everything is easier to use. Plus, it comes with a ton of new features.

New Features

  • Massive overhaul of the UI for the tweet viewer and profile viewer
  • Advanced filtering options for a user's profile. See all their tweets and interactions in one place and choose which types of tweets you want to see
  • View threads on a tweet, instead of just the direct replies to the tweet
  • View a user's lists on their profile (if they are public)
  • Option to only show people you are following, when auto-completing a mention


  • Improved drag-to-dismiss on the tweet viewer, profile viewer, image viewer, and article viewer
  • Article viewer: better quotes, faster image loading, and a black theme
  • Image loading: improved speed, consistency, and data usage
  • Fixes for the video and YouTube player
  • Simplified the in-line tweet expansion
  • Improved UI for replying to, and quoting, tweets
  • Better tablet support and layouts
  • Twitter Moments links will always open to the Twitter webpage, since they don't make these available to third party apps.


I have been working on this update for quite awhile, tons of background things have been changed, simplified, iterated, and improved! Overall, this is such an superior experience.

If you are a beta tester, go and download it NOW! If you would rather wait for the production rollout, hopefully you won't have to wait to long :)

To download the app, or to sign up for the beta test, head to the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.twitter_l

Enjoy the update 'all, try it out and let me know what you think!

I have one major thing that I will be open-sourcing, from this version, but it won't happen for a few days still. If you are a developer, look out for that shortly!
