Twitter fans tend to be very picky about their client of preference. After all, this social network can be a great source of news and information, aside from being fun. With many fans in line, Carbon seems to be the only Twitter client to cause any major hype lately. The WebOS-originating client is smooth and over all gorgeous.
The developer encountered some major issues in its path, but this ended up resulting in a much better conclusion; the app will be free for everyone and is set for release this month.
This decision has become almost necessary, as Google does not allow developers to post paid apps from the UAE (United Arab Emirates) yet. The Carbon team was hoping for an announcement at IO 2012, allowing developers from other parts of the world to post paid apps in the Play Store. This never happened and the developer found itself forced to re-route its plan.
The app will now be completely free, promising an ad-less “premium” Twitter client for the masses. We are certainly excited to see this application go live later this month. If you haven’t seen the preview from March, you best check it out right now. Even in its alpha stages, the app looks stunning. Its beautiful UI and smooth transitions reflect the full potential of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
We believe this is a must-try, and will surely be keeping our eyes on it. A Twitter app with the potential to leave its competition in the dust, and for free? Sign me up!
But just out of curiosity, what would it take to make you leave your current Twitter client? Is the UI and eye-candy enough?
