Third-party Twitter apps are a touchy subject for many. Twitter’s stinginess with tokens for third-party apps has led to several great apps being left dead in the water. Likely the most famous of the apps is Falcon Pro, a third-party Twitter app that soared in popularity and then hit a wall when it ran out of tokens. Not long after, the developer ceased to support the app and it was left for the faithful few who continued to use it.
But the Falcon brand is rising once again. Just over two weeks ago, Falcon developer Joaquim Verges announced that he would be rebuilding the app using Material Design. The result hit the Play Store this morning under the title of Falcon Pro 3. While the excitement for the new app was high, many have been left underwhelmed. The current release seems like much more of an early beta build than anything substantial.
Falcon Pro 3 is extremely bare bones, lacking even Direct Message support. Surprisingly, it includes multi-account support, but that’s going to cost you extra. Falcon Pro 3 is unlocked using an in-app purchase of $3.99, and each extra account will be another $1.99. The move is designed to help conserve the amount of tokens available.
Still, Falcon Pro 3 has some great features and loads of potential. It’s garbed in a classy, dark Material Design skin that makes it far more appealing than most Twitter clients. It’s also incredibly fast, with use of caching and extensive optimization for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Finally, it includes a whole lot of support for columns, allowing quite literally anything in Twitter to be added as a column.
