After a great few weeks of beta testing, I am ready to roll out the latest version of Talon for Twitter, to everyone!
Talon 6 overhauls all of the pieces of the app you use most. Everything from profiles and tweets, to the image and article viewer got a revamp. The app is faster, everything is sleeker, everything is easier to use, and everything looks way better. Plus, this version comes with a ton of new features and functionality.
Your Twitter experience has never been better. I am so happy to get it into everyone's hands! I have been working on this update for quite awhile and it is the biggest update to Talon in the past year.
To download the newest version, or to purchase the app, head to the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.twitter_l
- Huge 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 conversations 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 players
- Simplified the in-line tweet expansion
- Improved UI for replying to, and quoting, tweets
- Better tablet support and layouts
- Long clicking a chip on a user profile will de-select all the other filters
- Twitter Moments links will always open to the Twitter webpage, since they don't make these available to third party apps.
Enjoy the update 'all, try it out and let me know what you think!
I do have one major thing that I will be open-sourcing, from this version. If you are a developer, look out for that shortly!
