Carbon for Android released. (Twitter app)

I didn't beta test this one so it was a surprise how slick and smooth this app runs on my Nexus 4. Carbon is supposed to be a WebOS/Windows Phone refugee that has finally come to Andrdoid.

Anyone else going to give it a whirl? What are your thoughts?

I might give it a shot. It looks great. All I do is post stuff and read stuff on twitter so the default app works fine for me.

Dammit, I just downloaded Falcon Pro last night. This one looks pretty good, I'll still check it out. At least I'm still working on the Google Play Store credit I received from my N7.

I just started using it a few hours ago and it's pretty slick. I can't find a way to save images though. I've been using Falcon Pro for a while now and I think it has more features at this point than Carbon.

Yeah both Carbon and Falcon Pro are twitter apps but there's also a new Carbon that backs up apps.

Me too. I was the exact same. I used Tweet caster Pro since I bought my S3 and only recently switched to Falcon Pro. This one is better than stock, but Falcon Pro is still the best. In my humble opinion, anyway.
