Talon for Twitter (Plus) 1.1.1 APK

Enjoy twitter like never before with this bran-new beautiful app. Talon for Twitter (Plus) APK 1.1.1, the redesigned Talon for Twitter app, will take your tweeting experience to the next level! (this is for Android 5.0+ only)

Requirements: Android 5.0 and up
Size: 6.8MB
Rating: 4.5/5
Type: Social

"I've tried just about every twitter app for Android. Tweetings, Robird, Talon, Falcon, Plume, Twitter, Fenix, Tweetcaster, Twicca, Carbon, Janetter, Seesmic, Tweetlanes, and Twidere to name a few. This is in the top 3. If it had true push like Tweetings it might take the cake. Some UI elements aren't very user friendly but the app is smooth, stable and gets it done. "Troy

"The Black Theme and additional colour customization options are gorgeous! A manual custom colour chooser would also be welcome as well as being able to set colours for other elements (font, etc.). Still not a fan of the pop up window style - It can get cluttered and small (eg. Profile Following/Followers). Finally, perhaps provide an option for syncing timeline position to a user's Google Drive account." Mike

Please note: this app is for Android 5.0, Lollipop ONLY. If you are looking for the original Talon for Twitter, you can read about what happened to it here:

Talon like never before. Bold and beautiful. All material, all speed.
Created with Android Lollipop and Material Design at it's center. Talon (Plus) includes stunning and beautiful layouts, eye catching animations, the smoothness you should expect from the latest and greatest apps, plus so much more.

This isn't the Talon of the past, it has been fully rebuilt around Android 5.0 (and is only supported on 5.0) to give you the most power, speed, and style possible. You have never experienced an app like this before. You won't even be able to think about going back to your "Holo" Twitter app.

Beautiful, up-to-date layouts, designs, and neat animations isn't the only thing Talon has going for it though! The list of features is off the charts, doing everything you could ever want from your Twitter app. Here is a pretty comprehensive list of its features:
