Talon for Twitter 1.3 brings Twitlonger, Tweetmarker and a list of other features too long to handle

talon for twitter hone

Klinker apps is continuing to impress those who felt Talon for Twitter was worth spending a couple of backs on. The latest upgrade – version 1.3, FYI — brings an absolutely ridiculous amount of new features, changes and fixes.

The biggest of the bunch will be support for Twitlonger and Tweetmarker, pull to refresh on searched trends, uploading with Twitpic, the ability to remove retweets and more. Take some time to peruse the full list:

- TweetMarker support
- TwitLonger support
- Upload with TwitPic
- Much better handling of user searches
- Added share and quote button to the in-line expansions on tweets
- Add color to the retweet and favorite buttons so you can better distinguish your actions on a tweet
- Live streamed tweets will be automatically loaded when you are at the top of the timeline
- Higher quality Instagram, TwitPic, and Imgur pictures
- Remove retweets by long pressing the retweet button
- Pull to refresh on searched trends
- Don’t show YouTube in pictures timeline
- Better feedback for when you retweet or favorite a status
- Much better support for auto-trimming the databases
- Added size 30 font
- Mark direct messages and mentions as read when the notification is dismissed
- Better handling of retweets when viewing the tweet
- Reply to your own tweets
- Share individual links in a tweet using the “Share Link” button in the overflow menu when viewing a tweet
- View your current account on the talon pull notification if you have more than one
- Workaround under advanced settings for if your timeline jumped down a spot after a refresh
- Better stability
- Tons of bug fixes
- Updated translations
- Probably some other small stuff I forgot about as well
Whew. And the best part is that Klinker is nowhere near done. We’re told to stay on the lookout for another big announcement that they’re working on for the app, and you can be sure they’ll have our full and undivided attention once that happens. In the meantime, grab the latest upgrade to Talon right from the Google Play Store. Don’t forget to consider joining the Talon community and signing up for beta updates, as you could be treated to these new features before it hits the Play Store for everyone else.
