It seems as if everyday there's a new Twitter client popping up on iOS and Google Play promising to deliver an experience unlike any other. I got the chance to check out Carbon, a Twitter client made by dots & lines that really does stand out from other Android Twitter clients.
Rocking a very minimalist design, Carbon at first glance doesn't look like much. Once you dive into the app however, it becomes clear very fast that Carbon aims to distinguish itself from the army of Twitter apps out there. For starters, Carbon has an almost menacing black, white, and gray layout that is simply gorgeous to look at. Tweets are displayed in a standard vertical order, but the real highlight is the inclusion of in line photos and videos. While the latter is nothing new, it's the presentation that scores major points. While looking at photos and videos, you can actually see response tweets to said content simply by dragging the comments box up. There's also a hint of gesture based navigation, like a two finger "power scroll" that immediately jumps to the bottom or to the top of your timeline.
Just from my 48 hours I've spent with the app, I've switched full time to using it, as it's that good. but don't take my word for it, head on over to the Google Play Store and download it for yourself.
