Sorry I haven't been around all that much lately, between school, a new job, and just managing the apps, I haven't had to much time. It also didn't help that I forgot to install the tapatalk app on my nexus 5 when i went back to the Lollipop preview
Anyways, just want to talk a little about where this app is at and what is going on. As some of you have seen, the app did in fact run out of user tokens. Tokens are twitter's way of limiting the number of users on a 3rd party app, they give each app 100,000 to distribute to its users. Those sure went fast in talon, which is something that I am pretty proud of, but of course a bit sad about as well.
This leads to the login issues. When you try to log in, more than likely you will be faced with a messages saying talon cannot authenticate any more users at this time. Which is correct. However, if you do in fact have a token already, it is only slightly less of a problem. You still have that token, it is yours until you revoke it, but twitter doesn't seem to want to even try to let people log in for some reason unknown to me or anyone else it seems... The token is yours though, so the message says to try again later, and unfortunately that is the only advice that I can give you as well. It seems like every few hours they allow more people to log in again. So you will get in, just keep working at it.
Now for the future of the app. I did release a material redesign, only for Lollipop, onto the play store. You can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...witter_l&hl=en
This app is for lollipop only, and I do not think it will be coming to lower version. I don't want to limit myself by api constraints with this one, and since I have a token limit anyways, the longer i can prolong that, the better it will be for me, as the developer, and you all, as the user.
This new version also allows me to have major incentive to continue developing the old version. They will have very similar feature sets, with design as the key difference. Since the token limit was reached, I have open sourced the classic version of talon. You can find it on my github here: https://github.com/klinker24/Talon-for-Twitter
This is something that I said I was going to do from the beginning and something that I am proud of. Open source is a major step for any project to take, let alone a project as big as talon. Some of the code it pretty good, some... not so much haha remember that I made this as a 19 year old kid with only one high school java class and month into a college java class... So don't judge the code to hard, it works well and, for now, that is what is important. I will probably go through and comment more of it in the future as well.
Check out the readme for what you have to do to get it to work, basically it is just getting your own api keys. I ask that you do not redistribute the builds you make for your own gain though. If you make one and would like to share it, great, that is exactly what it should be for. Do not charge for that build though. I have spent a hard year crafting this app and someone stealing it for a profit would not make me very happy.
So, anyways, that is the future, contribute to it if you would like, otherwise, continue to enjoy what I have created. I might be sad about the token limit, but I am overjoyed about the response I have gotten to it and the support from my users.
Enjoy the app, I will just say that it still has a bright future in front of it.
