Primarily the launch of Carbon for Android is Google’s fault. It was originally supposed to a paid premium app, after its solid start on webOS then its jump to Windows Phone. Carbon’s developer, Dots & Lines said in a Google+ post that it aims to submit the Holo-themed app to Google Play the week of July 22nd along with private testers who have had access to alpha builds of the app who will be receiving an update to a near-final beta version.
Best of all (and the worst for Dots & Lines) is that Carbon will be a free, premium app, but with no ads. The main reason being is that even at this year’s Google I/O developer conference, the search engine and smartphone giant did not extend paid apps to the United Arab Emirates, so Carbon’s developers had no choice. At the very least, they may have designed the best Twitter Android app on the Play Store, but that still remains to be proven.
