Talon 4.0.0
Well, today I am excited to take the wraps off of the latest version of Talon! This version comes with a whole host of features, updates, and fixes. Here are some of the highlights:

- Tablets in landscape mode now display 2 timelines at a time instead of one (see screenshot)
- Quick actions on tweets without expanding tweets or leaving the timeline
- Much improved tablet layouts
- Quicker account switching
- Few more activity transitions on Lollipop+
- Sytle updates for the navigation drawer
- Favorite user notifications no longer require "Home Timeline Notifications" to be turned on

I'm especially excited for the new tablet support and layouts - they have been working great for me. Greatly improved tablet support, along with quick actions are definitely the standout features for this version (and two of the most requested things, by far).

2016 Supporter
Along with this update, I am also adding a 2016 Supporter option to the app. I know it is hard to believe, but the current version of Talon has almost been out a year and a half now! I know that some of you use the app every day, like me, and have gotten more than your money's worth out of my work. The new 2016 Supporter option in settings is a voluntary contribution of $3, $6, or $10 if you like what I have been doing :)

I do want to be very clear: becoming a 2016 Supporter does not provide you with any new features or benefits for the app.

If you love Talon, then here is your chance to show it - chip in a few extra dollars! I work hard every day to maintain, what I believe to be, the best way to consume Twitter. If supporting further isn't something that you can do right now, no problem, continue to enjoy the app the same way that you have been the whole time.

Why should I become a Supporter?
1. You have been an every day user of Talon for awhile and you feel like you have gotten more than a cup of coffee's worth out of the app.
2. You understand that development is hard. I put all my free time into this product, and I think it shows! I hope you agree.
3. You want the warm-fuzzy feeling that comes with giving a little extra for something that you enjoy and use every day.

Even the $10 Supporter option is less than $1 per month for 2016. I am willing to bet that everyone throws away much more than that into products they use 10x less than Talon!


Hope you guys are psyched about this version, built on some of the more numerous requests! Whether you will become a 2016 Supporter or not, enjoy it. Talon just keeps getting better.

Let me know what you think!

If you are talking about push notifications, it cannot at this point. If that isn't what you mean, sorry, I don't understand your question

Is it possible to improve on the mentions (snackbar)? When you open talon it will display if you have mentions but disappear so quickly you can't read it and replaced with the unread tweet number. I think it would be better if talon had a sperate snackbar or other indication that there is new mentions etc. Rather than share the snackbar.

It's having Paste on this Auth screen something you can control? Using Last Pass, and it wouldn't auto-populate the fields, but had the option to copy/paste username and password. But Paste is not available in the menu here on this Auth screen...
Each of my twitter accounts has a pw that's a major pain to type!

Why don't you just make an easier password?

When I open the user's profile, choose the option "add to list", there's no sign for the list which has already added, that's not convenience.

You can view the user's in a list from the list page, but this is not currently something on the profiles, no.

Is there plans to fix profile lookups? This is what I get when I click on a profile from within gmail when I'm attempting to view the profile of a user who liked/retweeted me.

Is there a possibility to show exerpts/thumbnails from url's to articles on the web like in the official twitter app?
You allready have images and youtube (which the official app lacks) but noit artciles.

This is something I may explore further in the future, right now though, talon doesn't have the framework in place to do something like this.

Thanks for all your hard work and making this the best twitter client out there ! +Luke Klinker
I only have some minor issues with the app like could you reverse the feature where you have to long click on a picture to see the tweet accompanying it? Or just do it the way twitter does it? This would make going through someone's pictures much faster and easier for me
And when you go on someone's profile a simple click on their avi should be able to view the full picture and a simple swipe to view their header would be awesome

+Luke Klinker oh alright thanks , well could you have the long click as the default method and the ability to change it to the reverse method in settings? #bestofbothworlds 😃

+Luke Klinker​ Here's the screenshot. As you see it seems to be behind the Android navigational bar. Regrettably the Asus 701 will not get any Android update beyond 4.4.2.

I wonder if you have a technical explanation for the fact that I consumes 30% of my battery while in 4G WiFi I do not consume more than 5%
I tolerate 5% but 30% in 4G I find it unacceptable and if you do not offer me a suitable solution I would remove the 4th star because I'm quite refractory to energy intensive applications.
Know that I have sent you a tweet on your Twitter account Luke Klinker but I have had no response

Then turn it off... I'm sorry, but there is no way to reduce it and there won't be. Talon pull creates a constant connection with twitter, that is how it works. That means that your internet is always running and always listening for updates. That is how the system works, there is no way around that and no way to reduce it, as I have told you in the past.

Hey Luke, I wanted to see if there could be a way to indicate on the tweet that a "like " or "retweet" has occurred on the forefront of the tweet. This is most specific when using quick actions. There are many times I read the tweet without opening it. Hope this makes sense.

I may add an indicator to the quick actions in the future.

Have you ever thought about Streaming Timline only while using the App?

yes, but it honestly doesn't make much sense to me. Why wouldn't you just refresh or something if you are in the app.

For me, the twitter streams are set up for instant feedback, but if you are already in the app, you don't need instant feedback, you can create the access to the new data when you need it.

It just doesn't make much sense to me to do it this way, sorry.

What if... The app become even better with a tool to rotate the photo when add to tweet? My pictures always turn to another direction.

I just thought strange because in the Fenix appear all, inclusive some followers.

Hi! I am using Galaxy Nexus on MIUI ROM. When tapping the date, it showed Quick Actions with cropped icon. Would you mind to fix this? Thanks.

I feel like it'd be a good idea to add an overlay to the banner image in the nav drawer.

Thanks for fixing the action bar shadow on the timeline, the app looks even better now. Would it be possible to add the same shadow to the search activity, as it's currently lacking one at the moment?

The quick reply options are backwards for each account. Opening the tweet and the open are fine.

V. 4.0.1 on Asus Transformer 701

The notification drawer doesn't work properly, tapping on the All/New Interactions bar doesn't do anything anymore. It appears to be merged with the tablets main Android actions bar.

Due to the fast publication of 4.0.1 I didn't have time to install v4.0. Screenshot week come the moment I figure out how to put it into a comment on G+.
