Carbon Update Brings Notification Improvements, In-App Browser & More


The popular third-party Twitter client, Carbon, has received a pretty hefty update bringing with it a ton of new features and bug fixes. Included in this upgrade is the ability to adjust notification frequency options ranging from 5 to 120 minutes, a snappy in-app browser, a redesigned image viewer screen, and lots more.

Carbon has also brought back the conversations thread following a change to Twitter’s API; this is a great feature which enables you to view a users conversation together with other users all in one place, without having to come in and out of a Tweet.

Vine and YouTube support has also been integrated, so now you can view videos without having to leave the app.
