Of course this is only the start for Klinker, who have stated that there will be another big announcement they are currently working on for the app, coming sometime soon, though no timeframe exactly given.

The update is now available on the Play Store. You can also sign up to the developers Beta community on Google+, to become a beta tester for any upcoming releases as well if that interests you.

We shall await to see what the company might have install for us, but this update certainly brings a heck of a lot of updates most tweeters were looking for.
