GET THE APP:  CURRENTLY HOT:   Galaxy S5 Review HTC One M8 Review OnePlus One

The future of Falcon Pro, and where users can get updates from now on

It’s been just a little while since esteemed Falcon Pro developer Joaquim Verges took his application off the market due to Twitter stopping him from resetting the tokens on his app every time he reached 100,000 users. He immediately provided a download for a previous version of the app for paying members who found themselves locked out after the reset, and mentioned he’d be going back to the drawing board to see what he can do to circumvent this unfortunate circumstance.

Unfortunately, he was unable to come up with an acceptable compromise for users who paid for the app, and things have pretty much been at a standstill. Posting to Google+, Verges says users can get future updates for free from getfalcon.pro, but there’s one condition — you have to have an existent token to use it. This ensures folks who paid for it can keep using it without having to worry, though you’ll want to be careful when messing around in your account settings as relinquishing a token could mean you’re locked out forever.

Verges did mention that there’s a “secret” way to log in if you don’t already have a token, but he’ll leave it up to users to find that. He says it’s a bit of an experiment, so let the games begin. With that, Falcon Pro has been updated to version 2.0.4 with the following changes:

v2.0.4 Changelog :

- Brand new mobilizer – seamless integration of articles in the app !
- New image loaded scale animations
- Little improvements and fixes

So where do we go from here? Well, Falcon Pro updates will slow down, for one. Verges says he’s going through some pretty significant life changes, including starting a new job and moving to an entirely new country. His new job won’t give him as much time to work on Falcon, though updates will still be pushed through the pipeline whenever he can find the time.

I imagine not being able to sell his app doesn’t help in the matter, so this is the trade-off we’ll have to accept if we want continued support. Head to GetFalcon.Pro, and see if you can’t get one of the best Twitter apps ever made for Android back on your phone.

    This app is the whole reason I’ve been using Twitter! I’ll keep using this app till it’s unusable.

  • Daryel Villavicencio

    The reason I left Twitter… The App is great, but Twitter is hosing the app developers.

  • Mike

    Spent $2 on this app less than a month ago, and if I lost the ability to use it today, I would still feel like I got my money’s worth. Not many paid apps I would say that about.

      I still do not agree with the way this developer handled the
      situation–forcing paid users to install a new version and “hoping” we
      could get a new token before they were gone……not good customer
      service. He should have just cut off new users from buying the app
      instead of alienating his current ones. Greed wins every time.

    This was a great app but I was one of the paid users who got hosed when the developer tried to circumvent Twitter’s rules-yes I revoked my token after he updated to the new version thinking that would free one up for me. Learned my lesson and moved on to the normal twitter app. It is actually quite nice now. The only thing missing is a good scroll-able widget but luckily there is Falcon Widget you can download that does not have the same restrictions.

    If I lose this app I’m done with Twitter.

    • ITCanWork

      me too.

  • jhawkkw

    He did it again apparently. I had a token and now when I try to refresh, I get an api limit reached error. So annoyed right now.

  • rudyy

    Would be nice if he gave refunds, or Google should ban him permanently from the Play store.
