Please note: this app is for Android 5.0, Lollipop ONLY. If you are looking for the original Talon for Twitter, you can read about what happened to it here: http://goo.gl/j1TkXh
Talon like never before. Bold and beautiful. All material, all speed.
Created with Android Lollipop and Material Design at it's center. Talon (Plus) includes stunning and beautiful layouts, eye catching animations, the smoothness you should expect from the latest and greatest apps, plus so much more.
This isn't the Talon of the past, it has been fully rebuilt around Android 5.0 (and is only supported on 5.0) to give you the most power, speed, and style possible. You have never experienced an app like this before. You won't even be able to think about going back to your "Holo" Twitter app.
Beautiful, up-to-date layouts, designs, and neat animations isn't the only thing Talon has going for it though! The list of features is off the charts, doing everything you could ever want from your Twitter app. Here is a pretty comprehensive list of its features:
- Live streaming support
- Support for 2 accounts
- Favorite users
- Swipe between timelines and lists
- Update your profile picture, banner, location, and user description
- Block, follow, and add users to lists
- Attach locations to your tweets
- And the list goes on :)
- "Materialized" theme engine for primary and accent colors
- Light and dark theme support
- Translucent system bars
- Night mode
- Custom text sizes
- Custom notification settings
- And many other goodies in there as well!
- "Talon Pull" to be always listening for tweets/interactions
- Expand tweets right from your timeline for quick interaction
- Clickable and long clickable links, hashtags, and @ mentions
- Expandable, actionable, and dynamic notification system
- Full app popup
- Top-down mode if you prefer to always start at the top of your timeline
- iOS emoji support (see notes section below)
- View in-line Twitter, Instagram, and other major image service pictures
- View in-line YouTube thumbnails
- Native YouTube player
- In-app browser
- Layouts take full advantage of screen space
- "Do not disturb" mode
- Widget for main timeline
- Unread tweets, mentions, and DM's widget

You will never go back to your old Twitter client again!
