Falcon Pro now priced at $132 to dissuade new downloads

The Verge:

[That] figure will be high enough to dissuade most sensible human beings from hitting the “buy” button while allowing Vergès to keep serving his current users with new features and bug fixes. “I’ll keep updating the app, simply because I want to use it as my main client, and I refuse to use an outdated client,” he wrote on Twitter. According to the developer, pleas for Twitter to grant him extra tokens have thus far been shot down. As expected, Twitter’s reasoning is that Falcon Pro largely duplicates core functionality of the company’s official Android app. “They refuse to extend the token limit because Falcon doesn’t provide any features that their app doesn’t have already,” he says.

I think it has a few features Twitter for Android lacks: being a good app citizen, and working properly.
