It has been a while in coming but Dots & Lines have at last launched their Carbon for Twitter Android app. It features a timeline design that aims to put everything on one screen to cut down on having to switch between views to get all your information.

The idea behind the design in Carbon has always been giving our users access to all of their Twitter content in one screen without the need to drill down to different screens to get them. Timeline, Mentions, Messages on the home screen, an extended Lists, Favorites, Trends as an extended screen to the main screen. All there.

Carbon for Twitter

Despite being an initial release, it appears to be full-featured already. It supports a number of features including threaded direct messages, support for multiple accounts, filters for hashtags, users, and keywords, and more. For now, there is one limitation that may keep you from installing this first version on some of your devices: There is no tablet support yet. It looks like Dots & Lines will develop a tablet-specific app but there is no ETA yet.

Future updates will add more customisable options and settings and non-Twitter options. Best of all and as promised, Carbon for Twitter is available for free. That includes no ads, this is the full version of the app.

Here’s hoping that Carbon for Twitter puts an end to the revolving door of Twitter apps on Gadgetorama’s smartphones.

Upcoming Carbon for Android to be free

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?
