If, like a number of us, you enjoyed using Falcon Pro then get ready to be happy all over again – it’s back! Version 3 of the little Twitter client that could has just hit Google Play.
Falcon Pro client hit the Twitter token limit not once, not twice but three times and despite desperate pleas to Twitter (ignored or unheard – depending who you speak to) was not allowed to have an increased token limit. The client went free after doing battle with Twitter for a time, and allowed users to enter their own app ID to circumvent token limits.
Developer Joaquim Verges has done a great job embracing Material Design in the new version of the app, and from the brief time I’ve spent with it so far, I have to say it’s very good!
All this goodness comes at a price, though. With a 100,000 token ceiling, the app needs to be priced accordingly to compensate Verges for his hard work. With that in mind, Falcon Pro 3 introduces a per-account price, with an asking price of US$3.99 (AU$4.90) for the first account and US$1.99 for each subsequent account added to the app from there on.
The Twitter app landscape has changed since Falcon Pro’s exit from the scene. With a number of maturing Twitter clients out there now, the prospect of paying for a client might deter some users. However, it’s also likely to ensure that tokens remain available for active users of the app. Your mileage may vary, and it’s up to you.
Will you jump over to Falcon Pro 3, or do you have another Twitter client that you’re satisfied with? Tell us in the comments!
