    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.

    From the still burning husks of Carbon and Falcon emerges Talon. A beautiful fully Kit Kat Twitter client. How long will this last in this Twitter token limited world? We'll see.

    Talon for Twitter is the newest kid on the block and it does so much more than almost all the apps available combined. I just hope this dev, doesn't go full retard like the one did with Falcon Pro. Wonderful app though. Worth the money.

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!
