Desktop Application Development For Linux is Not Dead – The Linux Twitter App Corebird Impresses with Latest Release
Corebird is one of the few remaining desktop twitter apps still in active development for Linux, making its latest release special and much looked up at. Improved spacing, smaller icons and better use of dialogs and in-app-widgets makes Corebird 0.9 impressive in its latest release. The four key improvements in Corebird 0.9 is amazing. The switching between multiple accounts is easier, the compose box now highlights @mentions, #hashtags and links as you type, twitter added support for multiple image uploads and .gif images, all over the highly improved interface and user experience.
That been said, the most attractive and striking factor about the Corebird 0.9 is that it lays down an underlined statement. “DESKTOP APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT FOR LINUX IS NOT DEAD”. Let us say that again. Interestingly, things have just moved on to more innovative and strong platforms like GNOME, elementary and Linux Mint.
Corebird is not the easiest app in the aviary, but as its latest release shows it is fast becoming the best. Other features of Corebird not necessarily exclusive to this release include profile editing, header image uploads, muting and filtering of tweets and robust in-app-searching.
