Hey guys!
For the last few weeks I have been working on a new app, called Fenix, yet another Twitter client (yes, I know, bad timing...).

The app is not ready yet, but I wanted to share with you an initial preview and get some feedback.

The core features are already implemented, but a lot of work is still needed and a ton of other features will be added.
Here's a summary of what you get right now:

  • Clickable links in timeline (I've not found another app that does this yet, apart from the official client)
  • Inline preview of images and youtube videos
  • Two styles of inline media preview - small and big
  • The usual dark and light themes
  • Dedicated tablet layout
  • Quick access to lists and saved searches from the app left drawer
  • Optional internal web browser
  • Multiple accounts support
As I said, the app is not ready, but I'd like to hear your feedback and requests.

You can join this Google+ community to get the latest test version of the app.
Follow this thread or the @fenix_app twitter account for updates.


Enjoy!

Trying this out. It looks pretty nice so far, and performance seems good.

An observation: In the dark theme, there's not quite enough contrast between the text and the background. Perhaps make the background a little darker, or the text a little whiter? It may already be completely white, hard to tell.

Only thing I've noticed so far is the inability to zoom in the internal browser. This causes a few issues when viewing some pages. I've attached an example.

Still really fantastic work

Best Twitter client I've tried for a while, loving the look and feels.

Using this as my client for now, will give you more feedback later.

Great!

A button to go to the top of timeline(mine, others', etc...) should be there...

I have been using it all day and have loved it, no one would know that it is a preview release. It's polished, smooth and a joy to glide through the fresh looking timeline. I currently use Falcon & Plume, but this has already become my favourite client. A few things missing to prevent me dumping the other clients, but I'm sure that they will be added as development goes on. Subscribed to thread and looking forward to updates and further development. Good Job!

wow, I´m impressed really great looking app.
My wishes from what I see atm
1. black theme
2. twitlonger support
3. customizable colors for links/usernames
4. options to switch the press/long press behaviour on a tweet
5. once you long press a tweet to expand and see controls, there is no way to collapse it agaim, please add that
6. option for retweet to do it normal or with my reply added to it
7. possibilty to swipe to left and right to switch between items like timeline and mentions

the preview looks very promising, with my wishes above it could really get my default one and I would definitely be happy to review ot
