Carbon for Twitter finally makes its way to the Play Store

by: Kristofer WoukFebruary 3, 2013


It’s been so long of a wait now that people started to think it wasn’t going to happen, but Carbon for Twitter is finally available in the Google Play Store.

We first reported on Carbon for Twitter being delayed back in August of last year. In September, we heard that we would be seeing the app in the Google Play Store in a matter of mere days. Then, well, nothing happened. Now after waiting nearly six months since we heard it was on the way, Carbon for Twitter is here.

Not everything is sunshine and roses, however. Users are reporting that although it claims to be compatible, Carbon for Twitter won’t install on tablets. Any of them. Even users of Android phones are seeing crashes and force close errors.


If there is one thing that Carbon for Twitter does very well, it’s the interface. From the very tiny amount of time I’ve spent trying it out, it is clear that this is the slickest-looking Twitter app for Android currently available. That said, it currently doesn’t have as many features as some other apps like Falcon Pro.

Carbon for Twitter is available for phones running Android 4.0 and up. We can’t say for certain, but it seems likely that we’ll see a fix for tablet users in the near future. If you want to check Carbon for Twitter out for yourself, hit up the link in the sources section directly below the article.

Have you tried Carbon for Twitter already? How do you think it stacks up against other Twitter apps?

    it’s not compatible with tablets yet, but it will load if you change the LCD density.
    Anyway after using it a bit, I think that I’ll stick to falcon pro. The animations are nice for the first 10 seconds, then they get annoying and just slow you down.
    Also is still quite buggy.

    So far so good, I think it is amazing… Extremely fluid on my One X and the timeline seems to go faster. I still like some Falcon Pro ideas, like the inline picture preview (although the implementation is not as good as it could be). Carbon may lack some advanced features in Falcon Pro, but for a standard user like myself, I can´t say I miss any.

    Late but certainly great!

    I am really enjoying this app so far! Let’s see if this will replace Falcon Pro for me! Who says Android doesn’t have great Twitter client? ;)
