Carbon for Twitter is one of the most popular Twitter client due to its ease of use

The whole point of Carbon for Twitter is usability. In order to achieve it, dots & lines has focused on a minimalist layout and handy access to main features. Thus, if you are one of those who like to customize layout, notifications and even the deepest details of your Twitter client, this isn't for you. Carbon is for users who like simplicity, who give more importance to usability and efficiency.

Carbon is set in HOLO layout which makes it look like a native app if you're running Android 4.0+. Actually, it won't work in earlier versions. Its simple, dark and elegant theme is kind with your battery lfie. Twitter's hard-users will love that.

Carbon is divided in just three swipable streams: timeline, mentions (activity) and direct messages. At the bottom there's a sort of dock from where you can compose tweets or DMs, view your profile or display the right-side options bar. From there you can view your favorites, lists, trends, search, filters and settings. Don't expect lots of adjustable preferences: you can just enable/disable notifications for mentions and messages and switch between accounts (it supports multi-account).

Besides, what makes Carbon such interesting is how handy it is: pull to refresh, swipe to navigate through streams and press + button to compose. That's it. I'm just missing "adding streams" and a homescreen widget for a faster access. Despite these catches, a highly-usable and reliable Twitter client.

    Reinstalled appreciate and the glitch seems to have disappeared. Nice slick app, very intuitive and attractive interface. Is there a way to create lists?

    1. The tweets takes way too long to upload and most of the time they never get uploaded after that The app slows down for like 2 minutes 2. There's should a button to help me get to the top of my tweets instead of scrolling up that takes too long. 3.

    The app is good and well designed, but must be improved with a scrollable widget. The developers are absent. On Twitter they promise "updates soon", but the app now seems to have been abandoned.

    Great app. Would be better if I could change the notification sound. I barely notice the sounds.

    Very cool app for Twitter but what's with the refresh limit exceeded warning? I refreshed like 5 times in my last session and then this warning came up and it said I couldn't refresh again for 11 minutes because I had exceeded my refresh limit? That's odd

    This is the best Twitter client I have ever used. This really is something quite special, even making Tweetbot look bad. The UX on this app is lush but it's still a bit buggy, I think techcrunch just named this the best Twitter app, competing with Twicca
