oooer not sure if I like it yet, I liked the old format on iphone. Is it a new Ipad app or will the iphone one work?

FrankieDude Thu 29-Nov-12 14:04:57

Much better!

Groovee Thu 29-Nov-12 14:09:19

Liking the ipad layout.

Dear god that's an awful pun...

JakeBullet Thu 29-Nov-12 14:12:35

grin grin Had to delete some apps but MN is worth it.

Oooooh I love it. There's even more emoticons envygrin

Vajazzler Thu 29-Nov-12 14:21:26

How come the flowers are different???? And the other emoticons???

CanonFodder Thu 29-Nov-12 14:22:43

Well, I'm using the iPad version and this is the only one of four threads I could open, the others crashed and I had to reopen the app. hmm
biscuitWhat is this???

Still can't book mark a thread which is blooming annoying on a big thread.

Time to be picky

Need OP and own posts coloured.

" are showing as code in titles in TIO list, although fine when thread is opened.

Bookmarking, as already mentioned.

::Darren rolls his eyes so hard Tee hears it in Belfast::grin

Otherwise...well done gang!

I think that's a biscuit Canonfodder. I'd like to know what this confused means. Anyone know? I did this one shock very creepy! And this one too a bit blush.

Also...it just crashed while I was scrolling though a largish thread...

It's the biscuit, Cannon. It looks like the regular biscuit when you view it on a PC.

* find, not did. And where's the hmm gone?

SillyBeardyDudeyman Thu 29-Nov-12 14:37:54

post colours required and automatic capitalisation at the start of sentences! otherwise the pedants might smack my bottom sad

MsInterpret Thu 29-Nov-12 14:40:06

They're all coming up normal for me old app.
Nuzzle - yours are hmm, shock and blush in the order you asked.

<debates whether to update...>

It's going to take some getting used to - I don't think it's immediately as easy on the eye as the old app but I've found some of the features easier to use.

Lots of different emoticons - how will these come up on the main site?

I'm noticing that when quotation marks are used in thread titles they're still showing the code for them, rather than the quotation marks themselves.

It's crashed upon opening a few times too.

I don't like the new emoticons at all- so confusing and no pombear.
Some are fine but some don't seem to bear any relation to the original emoticons so thy could change the meaning of a thread for me.

Any plans for a Windows phone app?

GrannyRat Thu 29-Nov-12 15:11:59

Definitely need :

* Topics > all
* Coloured posts by OP and me as poster
* Bookmark/save

It always takes a little while to get used to a new version of an app - but quite liking the look of this so far.

Can't see too many new features. Still can't see how to delete things I'm watching / not sure if we can see people's profiles.

Also, can't see any emoticons - they just come up as boxes.

footyfan Thu 29-Nov-12 15:47:25

Should have said I'm talking about the iPhone app.

Also, things I'm commenting on aren't coming up in my 'discussions I'm on' list.

Sorry to moan - thought you'd need to know the problems we're seeing!

MmeLindor Thu 29-Nov-12 15:50:43

Is this where we come to moan about the old one being better?

Thanks to all the Tech crew for their hard work wine and thanks
