With all this talk about the likes of Falcon and Carbon it’s easy to forget that there are still other fine Twitter clients out there. Plume was one of the first to bring its experience into the age of Holo, and now it’s gotten a rather large upgrade in the Google Play Store. One of the biggest changes you’ll notice is the refreshed widget that brings us a tweaked look and adds support for Facebook.

Beyond that, Plume’s update improves the scrolling performance, an important component of any Android application which uses lists as the primary element for delivering content. You can now view the Twitter profile banner of a user if they set one up, you can send a Tweet anyway if a picture fails to upload, and the app now supports columns for single accounts.

Those are all the new features, but some pretty ugly bugs have been squashed, as well. Issues with the pull-to-refresh function, picture cache and the event logger have all been addressed so things should be much more stable in that regard. Plume can be had in free, ad-supported form, but you can also nuke those pesky ads with a $5 purchase of the Premium version. Head to the respective links in the Google Play Store if you want to check it out.
