After over a year in making, the Carbon Twitter client for Android is finally ready for mass consumption. Released earlier today in Google Play, the app can downloaded for free. The current version only supports phones and a tablet specific version is still in works.
Housing some cool animations, the Carbon Twitter client is certainly a breath of fresh air. It also supports multiple accounts and packs a clean UI.
Here are some of the features of Carbon for Twitter
- Tilt Timeline to Refresh
- Power Scroll: Scroll/Swipe up or down using Two fingers to jump to top or bottom of Timelines
- Tap+Hold on Tweets to make everything clickable right on the Timeline
- QuickTimeline, home screen quick Timeline for Lists, Searches, Trends, etc…
- Rich and fun Conversation View
- Threaded Direct Messages
- Background updates with quick actions for Jelly Bean, per account
- Username Autocomplete
- Filters for Hashtags, Users, and Keywords
Sadly, Carbon for Twitter only supports Android phones running Android 4.0 or above, so many would be left out.
