Long awaited Carbon Twitter app comes to Android

Carbon, a Twitter client that was revealed for Android last year to much acclaim, has finally been launched on the Google Play store for Android handsets. Carbon's developer, dots and lines, had earlier planned to launch the app in July 2012 but had to postpone for extraneous reasons. Carbon was initially launched for HP's Web OS and later for Windows Phone. However, Carbon's developers soon announced that they would want to move the app exclusively to Android.

The selling point of Carbon is its slick UI that adopts Android's own Holo-theme. The app also uses plenty of subtle animations and supports multiple Twitter accounts. However, one big downside the app, in its current avatar, is that it doesn't support push notifications and instead checks Twitter for updates every fifteen minutes. The client is also only available for Android phones right now and not for tablets.

The Carbon for Twitter app can be downloaded for free from Google's Play store (find it here) and requires 7.3MB of free space. It will also only work on phones with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and later.
