Falcon for Android updated with multiple account support, new flat design

Update to Falcon version 2.0 now live on Google Play

Popular Twitter app Falcon has seen a major update today, bringing a host of new features. Falcon 2.0 adds support for multiple for the first time, along with a new, flatter UI and an optional black skin to complement the light and dark grey offerings. In addition, Falcon 2.0 adds in optional swiping between columns and transition animations for devices running Android 3.0 or higher.

It's a solid update to what's become one of the top third-party Twitter clients for Android -- and multi-account support in particular addresses a major omission in previous versions of the app.. So if you've yet to check it our, then now's a great time. Hit the Google Play link above to download the new version of the app. Existing users can grab the new version from the 'My apps' area of the Google Play Store app.

  • Awesome, about time! Now, can I set up multiple widgets showing different accounts...?
  • still no push
  • That's not going to happen.... At least not any time soon.
  • I believe that's a Twitter API issue, not specifically Falcons.
  • +2013
  • What's a "multipe" account?
  • Its for people who have more than 1 twitter account.. So say you created 2 twitter accounts 1 for personal and 1 for other stuff you can now use both at the same time where as before you would have to log out of one account and log into the 2nd account
  • I believe he was just making fun of the typo.
  • Lol he was.
  • Reading/Spelling fail on your part.
  • ;)
  • I hope this fixes the timeline jumping around issue...
  • the timeline for the second account doesnt load for me. I just got my 1st android phone today HTC One and this was my 1st app purchase.
  • I loved this app until it stopped fucking working..force closes like crazy so i deleted it. Back to UberSocial....at least that has push
  • This app is just balls-to-the-wall incredible. If twitter ever allowed this app to have access to their push notification api, it would easily be light years ahead of the official app. Until then, I just use tweetification to get "push" notifications.
  • Only a couple more things till I'm happy. 1) Fix mutes on lists. Still don't work (I only read lists, not the full stream)
    2) Add in color options like on Twicca. Plume's colors are too annoying, but Twicca does user colors so incredibly good you should download it just to check it out.
  • So that's why I didn't see any difference when using the Mute option. I just figured that I used the wrong words or something and didn't bother to experiment further.
