Developer Dots & Lines shared a promising preview of the upcoming Carbon for Android Twitter client back in March. Since then, there’s been little news and no release date. Yesterday, the developer took to Google+ once more to provide an update.
Dots & Lines, based in UAE, put the project on hold for nearly two months after finding out that they would not be able to publish it to Google Play as a paid application because of their location. They hoped that Google I/O 2012 would have some good news for them on this front but they were disappointed once more. Instead of letting the project , they have now come to a decision most will like. Carbon for Android will be a free app!
So, we finally decided to make it a free app. Yep, a premium free app. No Ads(we believe that Ads cripple the experience no matter how efficiently done, it’s just wrong on an app that users use all day long). Going free, doesn’t mean watering the app down, but a mean to get the app that we’ve been working on for a long time, designs that went through endless iterations and tweaking to be experienced out there by our eager friends who’ve been waiting for months.
And more good news: Dots & Lines expects to have Carbon for Android available in Google Play the week of July 22nd. This will not be a beta version either but the full first version.
Anyone else marking their calendars?
