    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!

    https://github.com/klinker24/talon-twitter-material

    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.

    This update adds a new feature: you can now save tweets for later, within Talon!

    Don't want to publicly like a tweet, but you want to remember to come back to it later? Save any tweet by opening that tweet and hitting the three dot overflow menu. To view those saved tweets, you can add the "Saved Tweets" swipable page through Talon's settings menu.

    14 Feb 2018 Google Play Release Update

    Talon for Twitter - v7.0.0

    I put up a new version to the beta channel this morning. I think it will only live in beta for a few hours, just to make sure there aren't any massive crashes. I will aim to push it to production later this morning.

    The big change for this version is the inclusion of a new design for the timeline! Check out the details and notes, here: https://blog.klinkerapps.com /upgrading-your-twitter-timeline/

    You can enable the Timeline Style Tweet Layout from the App Style section of settings. It isn't going to be for everyone. If you like the compact layout, chances are very high that you will hate this one.

    If you do like it, enjoy!
