Carbon, the long-awaited third-party Twitter app for Android, but it’s finally here. After being teased for almost a year, App developer Dots & Lines has been working on getting Carbon out for a while now; it originally estimated that the app would be out for Android as a free download last July, but that didn’t happen, but now have finally released the Twitter client on the Play Store. The company was held back last year when it discovered that it couldn’t submit Carbon as a paid app to Google Play from the United Arab Emirates, but it’s still taken much longer than expected to release after the original delay. After being teased for almost a year, the developers of Carbon have finally released the Twitter client on the Play Store.
The app was shown off on Twitter last year and then an early alpha was released for a few users. After that the app was delayed indefinitely because the developers could not release it as a paid app on Play Store as it wasn’t supported in their region. After that it was announced that the app would be released as a free app but even that got postponed indefinitely.
So now, several months after all that happened and people almost forgot about the app, the developers released it on the Play Store. It’s free, just as they promised, and does not contain any kind of advertisements or revenue model within the app.
