Carbon, the app that once touted itself as being “the premium Twitter client for webOS phones” is going to be making the move over to Android. Of course, given the recent webOS open-sourcing news, this announcement from the folks behind the Carbon app comes with not much in terms of surprise. In fact, we are sort of wondering when some of the other worthwhile webOS apps will begin moving over. Or at the very least, when they will begin announcing plans to move over. But for now, it is all about Carbon. According to the developer behind the Carbon app;
“It was a little daunting when we first looked at Android SDKs and the lack of fluid UI design in the past, all changes with ICS. We can now benefit from animations and transitions along with lots of UI elements that can make designing a good experience possible on Android.”
In short, it looks like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is playing a big part in them making the move. And for those curious why only Android, well, Carbon is also being developed for Windows Phone 7. That all being said, we currently have no timeline as to when they expect to launch Carbon for Android, but from what we have heard about Carbon on webOS — it should make a nice addition to the Android Market.
