Carbon for Twitter

Carbon for Twitter, which earlier this week got a long-awaited overhaul, has tweaked things yet again today and addressed one of our chief complaints. Switching to the Roboto font certainly kept things more HOLOYOLO, but not all variants of Roboto are easy on the eyes. To that end, there are now three options — Roboto condenced, regular and light. 

Good options to have, and a good response by the dev. The update's live in Google Play.

I really hope they add different color themes as I like everything about it, except for all the black

I agree! I haven't been able to use any other app after using Tweedle. Carbon looks atrocious on my Nexus 4 or for that matter any non-AMOLED screen.

alphabets says:

Same here. Keep coming back to tweedle.

This is dumb. Go with condensed since it'd the new font being used by Google and deal with it.

I installed it and could not read the text. Could not find out how to enlarge text and hard to read, to much black. Uninstalled.

to bad, for a main release (2.0) that they didn't released a tablet-ui. it's not that complicated.

estockda says:

The name of the tweeter should be above the tweet as well as who retweeted it.

Currently it's:
original tweet
user
retweeter
original tweet
user

I would rather
user
original tweet
user - retweeter (or maybe even this reversed)
original tweet

As it is now, it's very confusing.

SEGROUKIN says:

That's one hell of a syntax lol! True tho but Carbon's format sucks especially when you follow lots of people.

Qbancelli says:

Why would anyone not use Falcon Pro instead?

alphabets says:

I use Tweedle now, but falcon pro is what i was using for a year or more prior. I still love it, and the falcon Dev says there is a nice update coming. I may go back, but tweedle is so clean and sleek.
