Carbon (Twitter) Review
Developer: Dots & Lines ( +Carbon for Android )
Genre: Social (Twitter Client)
Platform: Android | iOS
Version: 2.1.1

Google Play Description
“All-new Carbon v2 with a new design and experience.
Carbon experience for Android Smartphones. No Tablet support yet.
Simple, Dark, and a dash of elegance for your Twitter day-to-day pleasure.
Carbon is a Twitter client, but unlike other Twitter clients. All of your Twitter content on one screen. A screen that doesn't get you drilling down to many other screens to reach to what you want. Timelines, Lists, Favorites, Searches, Trends, Profiles, all there.”

What is it?
Carbon is a Twitter client for android that utilizes a clean dark theme that will make most other clients turn green with envy.

What’s Hot:
-        Dark Theme
-        Free w/o ads
-        Ability to view YouTube, Vines, and Instagram content in app
-        User name auto complete
-        Multiple accounts
-        Ability to edit profiles
-        Cool cover photo dolly out animation when viewing profiles

What’s Not:
-        No form of tweet longer…
-        At times feels a bit buggy trying to reply or retweet or view content
-        Can’t create or edit lists
-        Imgur images still show up as urls…
-        Not optimized for Tablets

Carbon is a pretty cool Twitter app. I remember before it was originally released for android how people were anxiously awaiting its arrival. It took over a year from when they announced development to when it was actually released. Was it worth the wait…? Kind of and, and then again not really. For a free app it is the best out there with the Official app in a very close second.

I recommend this app to anyone who is tired of the default twitter app and is looking for a free option.

How to Improve:
Tablet UI – Tablets are very popular now it’s only natural to move with the market.
White Out Theme – Shockingly some people don’t like dark themed apps.
Imgur Support – It actually surprised me that it wasn’t already
List support – You can view already made list but you can’t make them.
Longer Tweets – some people can’t express themselves in under 140 characters...
