    Carbon for Twitter's review

    Published: 2013-02-04, by .

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

    • Highly usable
    • Minimalist HOLO layout
    • It runs smoothly
    • Streams can't be added
    • It doesn't include any widget

    "Things can be easier"

    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.

    Twitter wants too many permissions. Carbon works great! Would get 5 stars if set Carbon as default when I share from Web page.

    Used to be great app, but now it misses the end of loads of tweets since the Twitter update to character count.
