KDE Twitter App Choqok Updates with New Look

Chirp, chirp: The very capable KDE twitter application Choqok is available for download.

Choqok 1.2 introduces a new styled ‘vertical button strip’ to the left of the window which negates the need for the ‘two tabbed’ interface as seen in previous versions.

This button-bar can be un-themed, moved and resized by right-clicking on it.

The Choqok menubar can be “hidden” and replaced with a Chrome/Elementary style ‘button menu’. Ubuntu Unity users won’t notice much difference however, as the App Menu bar contains the menu regardless of whether this option is checked or not.
