Another popular Twitter app in Falcon Pro has been updated. And it’s now sitting at v1.3. It’s gotten a few nice features in this update like Live Streaming. So now you’re Twitter feed will keep auto updating instead of you needing to pull to refresh. You can set this live streaming to only work on WiFi though, as you’d expect, it does use a lot of data.
