Is there ever going to be a new one? I know I can just use the internet on my phone but I liked having an app.

Hi ChampagneTastes - the Android app will be on its way next year.

ChampagneTastes Fri 30-Oct-15 17:12:14

Thanks Becca. <drums fingers impatiently>

WotNoLoobrush Fri 30-Oct-15 22:59:12

Thanks from me too. Great news.

Next year? I miss mumsnet, please be early next year. 1st Jan would be good.

WotNoLoobrush Tue 03-Nov-15 14:34:00

I can't believe that so few Android users have been asking about this. We're not that much of a minority surely?

The ap was worse than useless and the mobile site is good enough.

DonkeyOaty Tue 03-Nov-15 14:37:31

Big fan of the mobile site here.

MissMooMoo Fri 06-Nov-15 10:11:03

Came here to check if it had been sorted yet.
Hopefully by next year you mean January.

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 06-Nov-15 13:50:05

Am hoping January too! <glares at android phone>

We'll let you know as soon as we have a date.

ChampagneTastes Fri 06-Nov-15 22:01:46

Thank you Dawn. I have pretty much dropped off mumsnet since it's been gone. sad

ChampagneTastes Sat 02-Jan-16 09:52:31

So it's January.... <drums fingers> Any update?

So it's January.... <drums fingers> Any update?

Only just, though! We'll go knock on Tech's door and see if we can get any info...

So sorry that you're feeling left out. sad

Thank you!

Hi ChampagneTastes - the Android app is being worked on and will be here later this year. We're hoping in around 6 months time, but that is very much an estimate at this point.

It's almost impossible to post on Android on the mobile site now - typing anything, the cursor moves so slowly it skips letters and words. Only this site is affected. I use Firefox.

ChampagneTastes Mon 04-Jan-16 21:47:29

I'm a little put out at how Android users have been treated. We've been very patient but another 6 months seems ridiculous - I presume that the iphone app is fine and dandy? Why are we so low on the list of priorities?

MissMooMoo Fri 08-Jan-16 15:00:54

6 months? !?!

RunningKatie Fri 08-Jan-16 17:14:22

Another 6 months? shock

I find the mobile site impossible on my.phone.The cursor skips about and thr bar about the guest post is currently sat over what i am typing so apoligies for spelling but i can't get rid of the stupid thing.

MissMooMoo Sat 09-Jan-16 12:48:22

agreed that the mobile site really lags, no other sites do.
I constantly find that I think I've clicked on a thread and in reality I have clicked on a totally different one as the site hasn't caught up with my scrolling.

WotNoLoobrush Mon 11-Jan-16 21:30:13

I agree with your last post Champagne.

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Jan-16 15:13:32

Hi all - apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

Our iOS users make up over 64% of our overall mobile users, which is why the iOS app took priority, with Android users taking up just over 30%. Of course, we're not saying Android users aren't important. There are a few of us at HQ eagerly awaiting the Android app too.

However, creating apps is a lengthy process - it takes around a year to create an app like this. We want to assure you the app is being worked on as we speak, and very soon we will be posting a request for volunteer testers of the early version.

If there are major issues with the mobile site, please do let us know and we'll ask Tech to take a closer look.

Again, we do apologise and please do keep posting your thoughts on this.

GoneAndDone Tue 12-Jan-16 15:21:13

I am still having the issue with the mobile site as mentioned above - the cursor seems to jump over words/letters making it almost impossible to type anything. I rarely post using the mobile site now and I'm on MN a lot less. Which is probably a good thing, I actually get things done instead. wink

RunningKatie Thu 04-Feb-16 18:23:34

I actually tried creating a post today and when previewing it lost the lot.

I miss MN

SpidersFromMars Fri 19-Feb-16 15:11:28

I miss the app too!

It's quite a long time since new year.
