Activating Falcon Pro on new Android phones

Falcon Pro, the best Twitter app for Android out there, cannot authorize more users since it’s passed the maximum users count. There’s a small hack to activate Falcon Pro though.

  1. Go to dev.twitter.com and create a new application. Make sure you set the Application type to “Read, Write and Access direct messages”, set a callback URL (any URL would do), and check the box “Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter”
  2. Download and install Falcon Pro
  3. In the app’s login screen, tap the four corners. This will light up four squares of different colors. Now tap the orange one to make it turn off
  4. Shake the phone
  5. Now you will be prompted with a screen to enter the consumer key and consumer secret of the newly created app. Copy/paste from the app’s page in dev.twitter.com and save.

That’s it! Fuck you, Twitter, and your evil terms.
