There is no shortage of third party Twitter apps on Android. Right from the likes of free ones like Twidere, Twica, and paid ones like Fenix, Talon, and the long abandoned and infamous Falcon.
But there is a new app on the block, and its name is Flamingo. The developer of the app is Sam Ruston, who is quite well known for his Weather Timeline app.
The specialty of Flamingo is the amount of customization options it offers. Let’s take a look at the UI, you have a bar on the top, with buttons for the most common tabs. Everything here is based on the material design color themes.
In case you don’t like the color you can change them from the Settings.
Swipe away from the left edge and you will see the sidebar. Tap on Settings and prepare to be awed by the sheer amount of options which it has. You can choose from various preset themes, or create your own. You can choose the color of almost every part of the UI including tabs, links and more.
Similarly you can also customize the layout of everything in Flamingo, like the items under Tabs, Menu, Toolbar, etc.
There is also a Night Mode option, which can be set to start automatically at a particular time, and you can choose the primary colour of the Night Mode UI.
Next, you have the Navigation options. This allows you to add or remove pages, from the main screen. This includes Timeline, Mentions, Search, DMS, Trends, Lists, Likes, etc.
You can also edit the Font Size and Line Spacing from Flamingo’s settings.
The app also lets you customize the notifications which you see, and basically these are toggles for what you want to be notified about.
The app also lets you manage multiple accounts, should you have more than one.
The advanced options let you toggle the following options: Chrome Custom Tabs, Auto Play GIFs, Hover Preview (also for profile pictures), Vibrate for Hover Preview, Different Themes for different accounts, and long press behaviour for tweets.
Well, there you go. Those are the options which the app has for now. Flamingo is available for $0.99 (about Rs. 69 in India).
