One of our favorite third party Twitter apps — Falcon Pro — has been steadily improving since it hit the Google Play Store, and New Year’s Eve brings us yet another nice upgrade. The list of changes is quite big, and many of you will want to get your hands on all of them. So just what can we expect from version 1.4?

For starters, there is now YouTube API integration. This will allow you to watch YouTube videos within the client itself — no more needing to be kicked to the browser or the YouTube app to watch that silly 30 second clip your friend sent to you.

Other features include the ability to double tap on Tweets for more options, a logout button, the ability to hide the keyboard when doing a native retweet, the ability to report a tweet for spam, mute management settings, hashtag auto-fill for searching tweets, a slider mechanism for adjusting refresh rates, a tweaked design for the “More Actions” dialog, enhanced conversation view for private accounts and more.

Don’t forget that you can download the regular Falcon app if you want widgets to go along with this great Twitter experience. It’s a shame that Twitter is limiting API calls for third party developers because that unfortunate hindrance is the only thing hurting the otherwise quality experience that is Falcon Pro. Give it a shot if you already haven’t in the Google Play Store.
