Good news for those Android fans who connect with Twitter on a regular basis.
Per reports, the highly popular and long awaited third-party Twitter app called Carbon has finally arrived for the Android users who relate to the popular social networking Web site even on the go.
It has been reported that app developer Dots & Lines has been working on releasing Carbon for a while now, and although the app was set to be released on Android as a free download last July, things didn't go according to plans. However, now the app has finally arrived, and offers a boatload of features.
"The company was held back last year when it discovered that it couldn't submit Carbon as a paid app to Google Play from the United Arab Emirates, but it's still taken much longer than expected to release after the original delay," The Verge reported.
The app came into news only last year when it was demoed in a teaser video. At that time, it was reported that the app, similar to its webOS and Windows Phone variants, is actually filled by a black theme with some very attractive pages for users.
However, details about the app at that time were pretty slim, although the developers stated that the teaser video would be the last teaser they'll show off before actually bringing the app to the users for download. Now, as promised, the app is finally here, although support for tablet is still missing.
"Simple, Dark, and a dash of elegance for your Twitter day-to-day pleasure," the official Google Play page states. "Carbon is a Twitter client, but unlike other Twitter clients. All of your Twitter content on one screen. A screen that doesn't get you drilling down to many other screens to reach to what you want. Timelines, Lists, Favourites, Searches, Trends, Profiles, all there."
As far as the app's features are concerned, users can tilt their Android devices to refresh the page. There is also the option to Power Scroll, where users can scroll or swipe up or down using two fingers to jump to top or bottom of Timelines.
Other features include rich and HD style for User Profiles, threaded direct messages, username autocomplete, filters for hashtags, keywords and users, background updates with quick actions for Jelly Bean (per account), and more.
Head over here to get Carbon.
