Beta Update from 16 Jun 2018

Open Sourcing Talon for Twitter

Today, I am excited to take a very big step for the app: the Material Design version of Talon, that is currently on the Play Store, is open source!


Talon has been a successful app for me, for many years. I have been an outspoken advocate of open source work for a long time, and open sourced the original version of Talon, when it hit it's token limit. This was the next best step for the app, to say "thanks!" to everyone that has supported me over the years!

What this means for you:
As a user, you won't notice much of a change. You will still get the same updates, at the same frequency, through the Play Store. The app will continue to be a paid app, distributed to new users over Google Play, as well.

As a developer, the benefits are obvious! Hopefully you can use it for inspiration, implementation details, or other ideas. Feel free to contribute, if you want, as well.

What does the future look like?
Like I said, most of you won't notice a difference. It's not as though I am leaving the app, it is just getting a more public view. Feel free to make contributions, reports, or download and build it for yourself.

If you like what I am doing here, you can say "thanks!" back by giving me a star on the repo: https://github.com/klinker24/talon-twitter-material

For more details, check out the blog post that I wrote: https://blog.klinkerapps.com/talon-open-source/

Hopefully some people will find this helpful :) it is a significant contribution for me, to say the least, and one that I am very excited about.

App Description

This community is for discussing and beta testing Talon for Twitter.

To join in on the beta testing fun, all you need to do is join this community, then click on the link below (which you may need to do from your computer) and opt into the beta. Then you can download any beta updates that I put up (just remember that there will not be betas available all the time, I do need to take breaks every once in a while).

Some community rules:

  1. Everyone will be respectful and contribute towards bettering the app
  2. Post in the correct section or I will remove the post
  3. Stay on topic as best as possible
  4. Search a little before requesting a feature that has been discussed or a bug that has been reported

Hope you all enjoy what I’ve created here, I’m always open to suggestions as well (but that in no way means I will actually act on them unless I feel they will create a better experience for the majority of people).

Enjoy! #keepsliding #talonfortwitter
