I can see how it would be useful in those circumstances Terrywoganstrousers, but I'm still not overly keen. Even though it's only a couple of taps it feels a bit cumbersome for an app.

MN - I regularly get told their are no conversations when I refresh TIO - I have to refresh twice before anything appears.

I do like that there is loads of space when writing messages though!

£ signs don't show up either hmm

Can anyone see text as bold or italicised anymore? Or struck out?

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sat 15-Dec-12 03:39:05

Funny this is the only thread where I can see bold etc.
new emoticons are v confusing. What is shock and confused??

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sat 15-Dec-12 03:39:33

Actually no can see italics and strike through but not bold.

Biscuitsandtinsel Sat 15-Dec-12 07:29:05

Same here on italics, strike through being ok but bold not showing up. What about underline?

Also same here for £ not showing up properly.

And someone else mentioned TIO often saying 'no threads' the first time you refresh and having to refresh again to get them. The same thing happens when I go into a thread sometimes (less often though) where it says no posts until I refresh it.

I hope the app developers are giving you a discount for these problems MNHQ? grin

Ok, so the general feeling is that the crashing has stopped? <tentatively pulls party popper>

But bold and emoticons still a PITA?

Bold and emoticons still definitely a PITA. The app also doesn't much like words with inflections (e.g. Purées) and I believe pound signs are an issue £££££

Yup. Let's try that word without the inflection: purees.

Not even going to try pound signs again. It makes me look like a baby elephant on a trampoline.

The search facility just won't work at all. When clicking on a result, it just takes me to a blank page.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 16-Dec-12 10:32:02

Kate Emoticons are still confusing because they look nothing like what they look on the web, and the bold still doesn't show. Thanks for trying to sort these issues out smile

CotherMuckingDude Sun 16-Dec-12 12:20:30

Sorry if I'm repeating what others have said but please please please can we have:
-Highlighted posts for us and the op and mnhq.
-The ability to tap on the subject title to go to that subject.
-And most importantly BOOKMARKS. Long threads are impossible to keep up with.

This is on Android btw.

Ta muchly in advance.

CotherMuckingDude Sun 16-Dec-12 12:22:18

Oh, and can we have the search facility on the threads so we can search a particular word/poster?

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 16-Dec-12 12:39:43

If we're on wish lists here are two please for the mobile apps:
- being able to click on a username to see their profile
- being able to name change

ReindeerOutdoors Sun 16-Dec-12 15:30:04

Erm, sorry to keep moaning but active threads is really pissing me off. It seems like the same 10 or 15 threads on a loop, with the order shuffled around a bit each time. It's like Groundhog Day.

ReindeerOutdoors Sun 16-Dec-12 15:32:34

Oh and if I click on a link, and after I have looked at it, want to return to the thread to see what people are saying about said link, I often find the app has chucked me out and I have to search through the thread again.

I know there's more pressing things to worry about, but while you're ironing out creases.....

Biscuitsandtinsel Mon 17-Dec-12 10:56:40

I've moaned a lot about the emoticons but I think I quite like the envy one being a heart - it seems a friendly 'ooh, you jammy thing you' sort of message. Although the green face did double up as a sick face nicely - handy on the pregnancy threads grin

JohnMacwak Fri 21-Dec-12 12:57:32

I am Going to download it....smile

testing, testing... Yep, the iPad app is working. I like it so far, only used it for 20 minutes so far. brew

Sleepyfergus Thu 27-Dec-12 21:33:07

Please, please, PLEASE can you fix the pound sign. I'm on an iPhone and its frigging annoying reading '&pound' where the pound sign should be used.

Realise there are bigger problems in the world, but this is driving me crazy.

Thank you

Biscuitsandtinsel Sat 29-Dec-12 09:00:49

If I get a long PM, I can't view all of it on the iPhone app. I can scroll down a bit but then the end of it disappears off the page and I can't scroll any further.

Can we pls get a kindle mumsnet app pls ?

Jins Mon 31-Dec-12 10:53:00

I'm guessing from the fact that the Kindle recommends Netmums as a suggested site that a Kindle app may be some time away
