TwitPic support, higher quality images and "tons of bug fixes" round out the big change log

If you're in the camp that thinks the official Twitter app sucks, there's a good chance you're using Talon. It's a relatively new app that has received a lot of press, and it got one hell of an update this evening.

In addition the the KitKat-inspired "design that makes sense" the app has always sported and its wealth of eye-candy, the developer has added in support for crowd favorites like TweetMarker and TwitLonger support, and tweaked some of the UI buttons to make the app stand out from the crowd even more.

If you're a Tweeter, it's probably worth the buck ninety-nine to give Talon a try if you haven't already. Grab it from the Google Play link above, and check out the huge change log after the break.
