Source and Talon for Twitter (Plus) Announcements

Today marks a HUGE day for +Jacob Klinker and I! We have three major and exciting announcements for you, directly from the labs of Klinker Apps, Inc:

1.) Source, our news reader app, is hitting the full production channel today, which means anyone can (and should) go out and grab it on the Play Store now! After months of beta testing, it is at a point where we are extremely happy with its design and functionality. We know is up to the standards you all have come to expect from our work.

It has support for numerous different news sources including:
- Feedly
- Twitter Lists
- RSS Feeds
- Inoreader
- The Old Reader

It also has an awesome Android Wear watch app that I know plenty of people will be into!

Play Store: http://goo.gl/HxbLWG
Beta Community: http://goo.gl/rlH1hK

2.) Talon for Twitter (Plus) is now fully supported on Android 4.4 (KitKat)! That means anyone who has yet to get their Lollipop update can experience the beauty and power of a fully functional, material design, Talon for Twitter app on their devices. Yay :)

Play Store: http://goo.gl/g2pjMI
Beta Community: http://goo.gl/t22LkD

3.) As a special treat, both apps will be on sale for $1.99 for the next 48 hours. If you have been holding back, there is no better time than now to pull that trigger!


Hope you guys enjoy, a lot of work has gone into both of these products and we couldn't be more thrilled by the results. All our apps have all come a long way from when we started and these two exemplify just how far and how much we have learned in the process.

Feel free to share and spread the love, thanks for the support 'all!

Great work +Ludovic Vialle​ and +Level UP Studio​! One suggestion/bug, merge the two Navigation toggles related to internal/external browser into a single toggle. Off would be internal while on would be external. Currently both can be toggled on. When both are on the internal browser in used.

Probably they need better wording but Open in Browser will bypass the article reading mode (you open articles on the websites directly), and Disabling the internal browser will start your external browser for links.

Stop & Shop has everything you need at reasonable prices. The deli and prepared foods areas are top notch. It should be noted that the non-food items (general merchandise, personal care products, etc.) are usually expensive. This location has a gas station where you get discounts based on your shopping orders.

The Haversham House is a nice place for a wedding reception. Comfortable with a relaxing atmosphere. I attended one wedding here and enjoyed it overall, but the staff could be more cheerful and they would benefit from a better plan/approach for serving the food (took 20 minutes; first tables done eating while last tables didn't have food yet.)

Kmart is Kmart! This location is rundown and many of the employees are not friendly. Many deals can be found, but the product selection is poor; especially the food. Get in, get what you planned, and get out!
