Talon for Twitter Reviews

    A beautiful new Twitter client. It nicely uses the possibilities of an expanded desktop in Android 4.4. Beside the usual timeline, mentions and messages streams it offers streams for links and pictures. Fav users and tweets can easily be reached by slideout menu. An in-app browser is provided as well. Can't think of anything else I want in a Twitter client.

    Takin far surpasses the stock Twitter app. A vastly simplified interface keeps your feed in the spotlight with other features available in a sidebar. Windows open when you click on profiles, rather than taking you to a separate page. It is also possible to send tweets directly from your feed, again accomplished by a floating window.

    WilliamMRees - Talon is a beautiful Twitter app. I can't really show how good it is without just looking at it. Just give it a try.

    Another good, but not yet perfect twitter app. Has a more flexible notification system than Falcon Pro but is pretty cluttered. It's one of the better ones but not yet my favorite. What really stands out is the "push notification" service that works really well.

Description

Show me more

Get fully immersed in your Twitter with this beautiful, feature PACKED Twitter client with a design that actually makes sense! Created with Android 4.4 (KitKat) in mind. Includes full screen (translucent) layouts, stunning animations and more! Of course that doesn't mean earlier versions of android get left out! The only thing that wasn't able to be recreated in Android 4.3 and below was the transparent navigation and status bars... Sorry! It just isn't possible :(

Beautiful, up-to-date layouts, designs, and neat animations isn't the only thing Talon has going for it though! The list of features is enormous as well, doing everything you could ever want from a Twitter app right off the bat. Even though it is new, I have added every single major and minor Twitter feature that I think is absolutely essential plus a ton that most people wouldn't even think of. Here is a pretty comprehensive list of its features:

Twitter features:
- Live streaming support
- Support for 2 accounts
- View your timelines (main, mentions, direct messages, links, and pictures)
- Favorite users
- Update your profile picture, banner, location, and user description
- block, follow, and add users to lists
- Attach locations to your tweets
- And the list goes on :)

Customization features:
- Extremely powerful developer theme engine (https://github.com/klinker24/talon_theme)
- Choose between either "Talon" or "Hangouts" layouts
- Choose from 3 beautiful base themes (light, dark, and pitch black)
- Custom text sizes
- Night mode
- Auto-Refresh options
- Custom notification settings
- And many other goodies in there as well!

App Features:
- "Talon Pull" to be always listening for tweets/interactions
- Expandable, actionable, and dynamic notification system
- Full app popup
- Full emoji support
- View in-line Twitter and Instagram pictures
- View in-line YouTube thumbnails
- Native YouTube player
- In-app browser
- Complete landscape and tablet modes
- Advance to new pages in a "windowed" viewing mode
- Never leave your timeline with in-line replies, favorites, and retweets
- Hiding action bar
- "Do not disturb" mode
- Widget for main timeline
- DashClock Extension
- Google style pull to refresh for quick refreshing

You will never go back to your old Twitter client again!

Enjoy Talon and don't hesitate to contact me with questions, requests, or bugs! The best way would be either through email or get involved on the Google+ page.

Thanks!
