What are all these weird emoticons?

Groovee Thu 29-Nov-12 14:02:56

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.

SillyBeardyDudeyman Thu 29-Nov-12 14:12:01

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.

noisytoys Thu 29-Nov-12 14:14:11

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.

JugsMcGee Thu 29-Nov-12 15:04:28

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

footyfan Thu 29-Nov-12 15:44:07

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

MmeLindor Thu 29-Nov-12 15:52:20

Oooh. I like the refresh button. Jolly good. envy

MmeLindor Thu 29-Nov-12 15:53:10

Ha. That was a heart on my iPhone. Not a <puke> face. shock

Oh boy, that's a bit of a difference, MmeL!!!!

PoppyAmex Thu 29-Nov-12 15:59:38

Is the "most active" option gone?

LadyIsabellaWrotham Thu 29-Nov-12 16:23:59

Have just updated iPhone app - never previously used it (always use mobile site) because I use "I'm on" a lot and app a bit rubbish for that.

So, updated app and tried "I'm on" again:
1) just gives you a list, not the truncated latest posts, so you can't see what's happened without clicking through
2) when you do click through it takes you to the top of the thread so you have to scroll down to where you were - for things like the Strictly / Downton / post-natal threads, which can run up to a thousand posts over a period of weeks/months this is not helpful (I know you can flip, but that's one more step <picky>) I like being able to click straight through to the latest unread post (out of the last 5)
3) trying to click through to the Georgette Heyer thread crashes the app completely shock

Mine is a bit crashy too- I can't click through to my antenatal thread.
I do like the refresh button though, and the bigger posting box. I also like not having to have the threads divided into pages.
I would like to be able to see posters profiles and pics on the pics thread, also echo what others have said about the bookmarking/ coloured posts being useful.
But especially the emoticons, it's so weird having the mismatching ones!!!

Cherrypi Thu 29-Nov-12 17:05:26

Can you remove topics from my topics now? I can't figure it out. Thanks.

JambalayaWarmMincePie Thu 29-Nov-12 17:19:00

I don't like it!!!confusedconfusedconfusedconfusedhmmhmmhmmhmmhmmhmmhmm

SweetMingePie Thu 29-Nov-12 17:21:59

Ipad app! Let me check that out!

Startail Thu 29-Nov-12 17:24:09

Nice and clear, full tread titles, haven't tried links yet, but what isshockconfusedenvy for
Andwinecocktails instead of wine and brew cups instead of mugs it's too posh.

SweetMingePie Thu 29-Nov-12 17:24:21

Testing, testing 123

SweetMingePie Thu 29-Nov-12 17:27:08

Hmm, not sure I like it (ipad).

I use old style MN so this looks newer.

Will have to see if I grows on me.

Ploom Thu 29-Nov-12 17:30:06

Like that the screen for typing on the iphone/ipod app is bigger than before but still frustrated that you cant see what anyone has posted while you're typing a post - makes it difficult on long running threads where posters name check each other.

Always takes a while to get used to an update but it seems better so far.

openerofjars Thu 29-Nov-12 17:30:11

Gosh. Well. I see from my notes that the iPad app is rated 9+ for Infrequent Mild/Mature Suggestive Themes and Infrequent/Mild Profanity or Crude Humour on the App Store.

Come on, people. We clearly aren't trying hard enough here.

Maybe they haven't looked at the app on a Friday.

LostInWales Thu 29-Nov-12 17:36:08

wineI find very pleasing. That was all, thank you.

MyNameIsLola Thu 29-Nov-12 17:39:10

Can I add my complaint please. The app (iphone) crashes for me every time I try to flip the thread hmm

Keeps crashing on me on iPad.

confused looks nothing like the old hmm! Looks more like someone sobbing! I do like the new app overall though, much clearer, and nice to be able to access pms now.

Am not 'appy sad <-- see

Updated iPhone app - it crashes EVERY time I change page. Can I get the old one back?!

LostInWales Thu 29-Nov-12 18:03:11

The only thread it goes a bit wonky on for me is this one wink

I can't get past the first page of posts confused
And where has 'Most Active' gone? That's my favourite bit!

Of course this may have already been said, but like I said I can't see everything!

DorsetKnob Thu 29-Nov-12 18:26:09

Android app downloads and then crashes

Pascha Thu 29-Nov-12 18:33:34

Total fail for my pathetically old iphone which doesn't support it. Oh well. The mobile site still works.

<wails> I can't read anything it keeps crashing on me!!!! I can't even get into my post-natal thread because it just chucks me off the site confused

BlameItOnTheCuervo Thu 29-Nov-12 18:44:12

Are you planning a blackberry app?

StrawberryMojito Thu 29-Nov-12 18:50:42

iPad app keeps crashing for me too. What I have seen looks good though.

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 18:59:31

I'm writing this from the mobile site because every time I click on this thread in active convos it crashes - other threads work though so I'm not sure what its got against this one! confused

Jux Thu 29-Nov-12 19:08:39

iPad, first.

Scrolled through a few threads. Didn't seem to have a box at the end for adding a post. Came to this thread, and I realised that when I scrolled down it wasn't getting to the end of the thread, so that was why the add post boxes weren't coming up. When I let it try to download more posts it crashes.

Otherwise, very clear. Am missing the thread started by and last post by name checks, but I can wait for those wink. They are going to come, aren't they?!

Advanced search is a vast improvement. There is a scrolling problem there too though, as the list gets as far as Mumsnet Local - Chelmsford (or thereabouts) and won't go further.


I scanned the barcode. This may be me rather than the app, so could you just tell me, is it meant to be a separate App like on the iPad, or does it just go to the browser? I haven't got a separate MN app, btw, after scanning the barcode. (Mind you, my phone's pretty full as I can't get rid of stupid things like stock market. Anyone able to help on that?) I may have had a msg telling me there was not enough space or something, but dh and SIL wanted something so I was interrupted...

Jux Thu 29-Nov-12 19:09:21

It's looking good, though! thanks

onedev Thu 29-Nov-12 19:20:57

I can't get logged in anymore on the iPhone app?? Please help!!

ChristmasCountdown Thu 29-Nov-12 19:34:43

I've only had a quick look at the updated iphone app (I used the old one a lot). On first glance, I like the look of it, however, i closes down every time I open this thread! Others have been fine though.

The banners at the top take too much space - about a quarter of the screen. Between that and the just text giving ad, there's probably only about 60% - 70% of the screen that scrolls. So if I choose active from the menu at the bottom, I have a big purple 'active' banner, then below it a blue banner saying 'talk>active'. It's wastes a lot of space to tell me I'm in active convos.

I really like that you can see more of the actual thread title - no more 'AIBU to ask my MIL...' then reading 10 pages to figure it out! Search looks better (but I haven't tried it yet) and like that you can access PM's not that I ever get any

Not convinced about the smileys - too different looking from the website and I don't know what some of them are for. Green heart????

PseudoBadger Thu 29-Nov-12 19:41:27

Ok, I'm on the iPhone. It has crashed me out 4 times when I scrolled to the bottom of this thread. Also - that advert is in a very annoying place, mainly because the viewing window for the thread text is just too small.

Don't know if this will post - I am finding that when a thread refreshes to bring on later replies the whole thread crashes. That's with this thread at the moment (haven't tried any others)

PseudoBadger Thu 29-Nov-12 19:57:57

Me too Mimsy!

OutInAllWeathers Thu 29-Nov-12 20:01:28

Like the look of it but it keeps crashing when I'm in the middle of something which is annoying when you are in the middle of a thread!

Djembe Thu 29-Nov-12 20:10:11

I have an ancient iPhone so doubt it'll work, will stick to old one for now. Use it all the time fairly frequently so don't want to either install it and it doesn't work and I lose this version, or install it and it's shite.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 29-Nov-12 20:19:00

Hello there

Very sorry to hear about annoying crashing problems et al. We'll come back with something more constructive (than my useless post) ASAP.

Thanks Rowan, can you please tell us where you've hidden 'Most Active' too.

Maybe tech have taken it for their office secret Santa gift?

AppleOgies Thu 29-Nov-12 20:28:05

Mine keeps crashing... Regretting upgrading now! hmm
I can't 'flip' a thread, or scroll to quickly, or read a long thread without it crashing.
What I can see of it looks prettier though...
Although what is this biscuit?

NellVarnish Thu 29-Nov-12 20:28:05

Buggeration! I've just updated without reading to the end of this thread! Mine keeps crashing on almost every thread I open sad (iPhone)

Okay, praise and criticism like a sandwich, here goes ...

I like the iPad layout a lot. TBH I tended to read through Safari on my iPad, so don't know how different it is, but I do like it.

This thread crashes the app on both elderly iPhone (3GS) and nearly-new iPad.

The emoticons are insane. Having emoticons which are totally different in an app as opposed to a browser is bizarre. Having ones which don't exist in a browser bizarrerer still. I can't see what most of the faces are supposed to be on the iPhone, and while I may not have a retina display on that I DO have perfect eyesight. Ner.

And there is no 'hmm' emoticon. That is my favourite emoticon ever, I often bemoan its absence at work (cos I feel that way a LOT at work).

When not crashing, both apps are nice and responsive. iPhone one always has been - I often resort to MNing when the signal is too weak to do anything else.

AppleOgies Thu 29-Nov-12 20:33:37

Wish I'd read this thread before upgrading, I got excited. It's not useable at all on my iPad or my iPhone <sniffs>
But actually it's mainly this thread... Is it the number of emoticons on this thread that is causing the problem.
Flicking between web page and app, and other threads that are less busy are working?

MirandaWest Thu 29-Nov-12 20:39:41

I opened it. Everything crashes sad but I did see it has the emoticons DP put onto my iPad for me &#128522;

MirandaWest Thu 29-Nov-12 20:40:20

Whoops I used one of them when I was on the mobile version so it made no sense blush

marshmallowpies Thu 29-Nov-12 20:46:22

I'm getting crashing too. And Most Active is my first port of call when I open MN in the morning....where has it gone?

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 20:51:20

It keeps crashing <waaaahhhhh>


Tiredmumno1 Thu 29-Nov-12 21:00:03

It's kicked me off quite a few times already sad

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 21:26:49

Testing bear

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 21:28:44

Where's the bear? I typed bear in square brackets but it disappeared shock

Will no one think of the bear?! hmm

My upgraded app is now totally useless, won't do a thing without crashing and closing. I remember this happened when the last upgrade was released for the iPhone app.

Tis odd as I was one of the 'testers' for the upgraded iPhone app so had it on my phone before and it was fine though sounds like our pleas for book marking and colour coded posts were ignored wink

The bear is here in Safari, fret not. And he looks like he should, a Pom Bear, not some poncetastic Steiff teddy.

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 21:33:42

And this sad doesn't convey 'hmm' to me, in fact I thought that hmm was hmm. <realises that none of these posts make any sense to anyone using the website>

AmandinePoulain Thu 29-Nov-12 21:40:37

How do you get the Steiff teddy though? I saw it up thread but it's not in the ready made emoticons list and if it's not bear in brackets how do you draw it? And why was poor Pom sidelined in favour of a pointless green heart?

Anyone want to join me in a Bring Back Pom lobby? We can make posters and organise sit ins and shout Down With This Sort Of Thing wink

Jux Thu 29-Nov-12 21:53:32

How are people getting all these emoticons? I can't scroll down to the end of a thread to get the post message box, let alone as far down as the emoticons - on neither Android nor iPad.

I have never used the mobile site, I just use Safari on the iPad, and don't MN on the phone at all.

Mine keeps crashing too I don't like it hmm

bluebump Thu 29-Nov-12 22:03:14

I use bookmarking all the time so I'd rather stick to a web version on the iPad still I think. It does look good though.

WildWorld2004 Thu 29-Nov-12 22:06:59

Is thishmm sad face or is thissad? The second one looks like it is sleeping.

Lottieloulou Thu 29-Nov-12 22:07:05

It keeps crashing for me on the iPad. Sorry.

GoingGoingGoth Thu 29-Nov-12 22:07:13

Having to post in safari, as app keeps crashing, looks good though.
Would like own and OP coloured please?

poorbuthappy Thu 29-Nov-12 22:14:29

Oooooo excitement.

WineGless Thu 29-Nov-12 22:50:24

The iPad app keeps crashing as I am scrolling down sad

Tweasels Thu 29-Nov-12 22:54:34

My iPad version keeps kicking me out when I try to scroll down the thread. Also and more worryingly as this could cause some major misunderstanding. The emoticons show up as different things on the web based version and I have no actual idea what one of them is. Erm hang on and I'll go back on the app.........

Tweasels Thu 29-Nov-12 22:55:46



What is it?

Tweasels Thu 29-Nov-12 22:57:57

See, it's the fucking biscuit on "normal" mumsnet. It doesn't look like a biscuit on the app. Me not like change.

Pourquoimoi Thu 29-Nov-12 23:13:45

Amusingly I have been unable to read the whole of this thread as it has crashed 4 times in a row when I've scrolled down to the bottom.

That aside, I am not yet convinced on the new look, it'll take some getting used to.

Sleepyfergus Thu 29-Nov-12 23:15:22

Ditto Poirquoimoi

jimswifein1964 Thu 29-Nov-12 23:26:26

Testing testing smilegrinwinkshockhmmconfused

jimswifein1964 Thu 29-Nov-12 23:27:55

Ok, so it Appears I can add a message. But I don't have a biscuit or a bear?

PinkPepper Fri 30-Nov-12 00:40:12

Testing. I like the way it looks. Has crashed a couple of times on me but sometimes that's iPhones fault with new apps I think.


ClairesTravellingCircus Fri 30-Nov-12 01:51:11

Same here Pourquoimoi!

Turquoiseblue Fri 30-Nov-12 04:37:33

Oh dear ! I don't do change very well. I m not sure i like the new layout and format. As I type the little i icon is covering the text in the top right corner so I cannot see if I ve gotten a full stop in.
It s crashed 3 times as I ve tried to post this and read the tread .... Annoying [not sure which emoticon to use]

Would like a bookmark yes please
biscuit Prefer old biccies smile this confusedlooks odd shockas does that!
I preferred how it 'looked ' before but I ll try it I it would please stop crashing

changeforthebetterforObama Fri 30-Nov-12 05:37:50

Much better looking than the websitesmile

The emoticons are weird but I'll cope.

It is a bit inclined to randomly crash. I've only had the iPad for 10 days though so it could just be my incompetence!grin

OhTinky Fri 30-Nov-12 06:17:13

I cant get in to any threads , just keeps crashing and chucking me out of MN :-( im using safari on iPhone until you announce a new upgrade!

I did like what I saw re thread title layout etc, not tried emoticons yet.

Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 30-Nov-12 06:39:45

Ok, I'm still struggling with the new app hmm. My thoughts.....

1. It randomly crashes. Well not that randomly - it is every time I try to go into certain threads.

2. I do not like these emoticons: shockhmmconfusedbiscuit. 'Hmm' NEEDS a raised eyebrow! And 'confused' looks like it should be 'I haven't had any sleep'. And what's wrong with the 'biscuit'? Is that supposed to be a tongue poking out for no comment or something? Otherwise I believe Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry would comment that it is a very uneven bake to the biscuit grin.

3. For some reason now if I put something in pointy brackets it removes it from my post? I used to put loads of highly witty and interesting things in pointy brackets wink

Layout and usage I'm ambivalent as to whether it is any better or worse. Looks a bit cheaper to my mind (can apps look cheap? Maybe more dated?) but ultimately mainly works the same, apart from my above points.

Look forward to a new update..... smilesmile

RarelyUnreasonable Fri 30-Nov-12 06:43:22

Soooo disappointed that the iPhone app has kept its glitches - can't add a message, and the first topic I look at, eg Becoming a parent, stays as the page title wherever I am, eg S&B.

SheilaWheeler Fri 30-Nov-12 06:49:26

Please - can we have bookmarks?

FestiveFumblesandStumbles Fri 30-Nov-12 07:07:58

The smilies have changed!

I do not like them. In particular the grin looks as if it is polite. I like the old one, it looks like it is having a damn good cackle.

And wtaf do these ones even mean shockconfusedsad

And the heart...?


Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 30-Nov-12 07:08:48

Oh rarely my old iPhone app did that thing where the header would get stuck! Used to drive me nuts as I then couldn't add any messages and I would have to delete the app and reinstall it to start again! So far though the new one hasn't done it for me......

FestiveFumblesandStumbles Fri 30-Nov-12 07:09:13

Oh, and my hmph in < just disappeared from my post.


Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 30-Nov-12 07:09:26

Agree about the grin. This one just isn't cheeky enough grin

Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 30-Nov-12 07:10:14

Yes - why do >< brackets now have magic invisibility powers?

AmandinePoulain Fri 30-Nov-12 07:17:39

I wondered why sometimes there was a random blank space at the bottom of some posts! (Penny drops) obviously the poster had added something in brackets at the bottom that the app 'deleted'. How annoying! I persevered with the app despite its faults before the update but I think I'll be going back to the mobile site, sorry but it just isn't usable (mainly because of the new smilies if I'm honest but the constant crashing doesn't help)


blizy Fri 30-Nov-12 07:38:23

I quite like the look of the app, however it keeps crashing on me when I scroll to the bottom of a page and is chucking me out of my postnatal group. Oh, and what's with the weird emoticons?

AppleOgies Fri 30-Nov-12 08:03:38

I'm feeling a bit sorry for darrenmumsnet...

I do like the look of the app, I really do. And when threads are small with very few emoticons it does work.

Hope you're not too upset by the criticism darrenmumsnet.

poorbuthappy Fri 30-Nov-12 08:03:40

My active isn't updating!
I did wonder if it was the quietest night on here ever. grin

Jux Fri 30-Nov-12 08:04:37

It's not fair! I can't even see the emoticons...

Will check again now. I WANT WEIRD EMOTICONS!!!!!!!

Jux Fri 30-Nov-12 08:06:19

Oh now I don't even get that far. No threads at all!! It can't connect to mumsnet. Waaaaaaaaaagh!

poorbuthappy Fri 30-Nov-12 08:08:18

How odd. Just had to delete and reinstall and now I've got the old app back! confused

AmandinePoulain Fri 30-Nov-12 08:24:38

poor you have to press refresh, it doesn't automatically refresh when you click on 'active' anymore.

jux to see the smileys go to 'add message' and start typing.

darren is probably enjoying a bucket full of glass of gin somewhere grin

I'm confused - can't stay on the app long enough to try and post a message so I'm on the mobile site and all the emoticons you are saying look weird look normal on here? And I can see what's written inside < > brackets. Maybe they only look weird in the app so anyone reading your post on the normo or mobile site just sees it's before. Weird.

I'm going to try deleting and re-installing see if I get the old one back as prefer apps to safari.

Any word from darrenmumsnet? Or is he in a corner sobbing as apps crash all around him??

Nope have deleted and re-installed - still the new app which still crashes every time I try to open a thread. Grrr

thingy1 Fri 30-Nov-12 09:05:14

I'm on iphone app, I like the look but like many have already said it keeps crashing when I try to scroll down fast, when I scroll down slowly it seems to be fine.

I'm glad to see a refresh button too.

Like it! But I've just noticed from a thread I'm on that if somebody types something in the <> brackets it doesn't show up on the iPad app? Means you miss part of the conversation.

Well just proved my own point! The pointy sideways bracket things obviously don't appear.

Jux Fri 30-Nov-12 09:37:51

Amandine, I don't get an add message box. The threads scroll down only so far, but not that far! I'm posting via Safari and the normal site.

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 09:48:30

Hello all, I'm typing this from the Mumsnet iPad and I can confirm that the crashing problem happens for me too. I've already been in touch with the developers and they are looking into it.

I'm also checking whether <adding brackets> is not working.

I can confirm that we are putting together a list of problemsimprovements based on your feedback so please keep the suggestions coming.

LostInWales Fri 30-Nov-12 09:58:05

I really like it btw, I can find things better and it's easier to read (well the bits that show up anyway wink) just a shame I've had to come on the computer to comment on this thread! Everything else has worked fine for me.

AmandinePoulain Fri 30-Nov-12 09:58:21

jux it's not like the mobile site, add message isn't at the bottom, it's top right, click on the '+' and you'll see it.

LostInWales Fri 30-Nov-12 09:58:22

How the mo' coming along?

ParceQueJeLeVauxBien Fri 30-Nov-12 10:54:18


ParceQueJeLeVauxBien Fri 30-Nov-12 10:55:54

Oh. I liked the heart, but why is it showing up as envy?

AbigailAdams Fri 30-Nov-12 11:02:12

iPad version keeps crashing for me if I try and get to the end of a thread. This thread, for example, so I can't actually see if anyone has already raised this issue grin Oh and no bookmarks. I lurves me bookmarks!

Pickles77 Fri 30-Nov-12 11:02:14

Can we have a most active thingy on the iPhone app please wink

A couple of comments on the android app. Firstly, thanks for making one! It is looking pretty good. I will agree that we need to have the op posts highlighted throughout the thread - I can't cope without that!

Often when I open the app the advert at the bottom flickers between the bottom and the middle of the screen. this stops when I refresh the page. I'm using an HTC one X.

Finally, when I type a message the keyboard doesn't automatically put a capital after a full stop like it usually does. Not sure if this is an issue with the app or the phone though.

Thanks again!

magentastardust Fri 30-Nov-12 11:38:00

Wah my IPod touch is almost 2 years old and is 4.2 so so new app isn't supported sad

AtLongLast Fri 30-Nov-12 11:47:51

I read some of the early reviews about the Android app & nearly didn't bother to download. Very glad I did though, I really like it! Read lots using it & posted a little. Do have the little problem of no auto capital after a full stop...

Do the Scottish smileys work on here?

That'll be a no sad

BabylonPI Fri 30-Nov-12 14:21:35

Mine just crashes on my iPhone, anyone know why, and if I can get the old app back?

BabylonPI Fri 30-Nov-12 14:25:56

Seems to be ok on the iPad smile

BabylonPI Fri 30-Nov-12 14:26:28

Then I remembered I was using safari and not the app..... blush

BabylonPI Fri 30-Nov-12 14:28:52

Nope, just crashes on the iPad hmm

Oh pants, what will I do without mumsnet at my fingertips hmm

The iPad app looks good, but I can't use it hmm

CointreauVersial Fri 30-Nov-12 15:44:52

Using the Android app in the car right now while waiting for DS to appear from school. Like the easy smileys!smile smile

Good job mumsnet. But why doesn't it automatically put a capital at the start of my sentences, like all other applications do? Strange.

CuriosityCola Fri 30-Nov-12 15:55:51

This new iPhone app looks good, but keeps crashing all the time confused

I can't get onto my usual threads <stamps foot>

CuriosityCola Fri 30-Nov-12 15:58:36

There was a petulant stamping of foot in bracketswink

BabylonPI Fri 30-Nov-12 15:59:10

Well I've deleted, reinstalled several times to no avail hmmhmm

Looks like its a no go for me hmm

Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 30-Nov-12 17:10:38

I don't have the problem with the lack of capital letters (using an iPhone 4S) hmm

No windows 7 phone app sad but your mobile site works quite well.....

Can I just say that the title of this thread is so good it has made me cry a little bit at the thought of little apps running around.
<mad hormonal thing no doubt>

Damn the invisibility cloak of the pointy brackets!!!

I also added some mad hormonal thing no doubt

I have discovered another problem. confused
I was just trying to use the search function and limiting it to one topic- pregnancy.
Unfortunately the drop down list to choose from only goes as far as Mumsnet Local in the alphabet, so Pregnancy has no chance angryangrysad

CointreauVersial Fri 30-Nov-12 17:57:42

Biscuits - presumably it's just the Android app having capitals problems.

skyebluesapphire Fri 30-Nov-12 19:14:24

It wont accept my username and login, do I need to create a new one for the iphone app????

thingy1 Fri 30-Nov-12 20:13:41

Another problem with the search tool is if I choose the post (rather then thread) in the search list results then it just displays a blank white page.

Hope that makes sense.

FeatherDownDuvet Fri 30-Nov-12 20:59:18

Can you make it so you can log in with either your username or email address, like the website, rather than just your username?

BitBewildered Fri 30-Nov-12 21:02:59

Pointy brackets turn things invisible for me too. It keeps crashing, and I used to really like the 'Most Active' option on the old (iPhone) app, which I can't find. The only thing I wanted was to be able to bookmark! sad

FeatherDownDuvet Fri 30-Nov-12 21:20:51

"Can you make it so you can log in with either your username or email address, like the website, rather than just your username?"

Meant to say I was using the android app.

Also, I wish it had the facility to namechange. I am a regular namechanger (due to stalking ex) and would love to be able to nc on the app. This is partly why I want to be able to log in with my email address because as a regular nc-er I can't always remember what my current nc is or how to spell it blush

BitBewildered Fri 30-Nov-12 21:28:46

And, and, and the emoticon's eyebrows aren't defined enough so I have to peer and squint to see if people are sad or hmm-ing. Also the stupid purple box with an 'i' in it with a list of how to format stuff is in the way. I've had a bad week and now even MNet is being rubbish.


^ which ought to be in pointy brackets but can't, so sobs even more!

skyebluesapphire Fri 30-Nov-12 21:45:53

Well it won't let me login at all...


FeatherDownDuvet Fri 30-Nov-12 21:59:31

I hope you can follow this!

I've just namechanged on my laptop (from FeatherDown to a new NC) and then I posted something under the new NC. Then I went back onto the android app and it still had me logged in as FeatherDown, even after I moved around the screens so it was having to refresh. Using the App I went back to the thread that I had posted on using a new NC and my post was there but when I then went to settings menu on the app it still said I was logged in as FeatherDown.

So I think to namechange I will have to do it on the laptop, then next time I'm on my phone manually log out and log back in again with my new NC (if I can remember it grin ) rather than just leaving it running in the background.

Might this cause some problems with creating dual identities?

skyebluesapphire Fri 30-Nov-12 22:41:47

Thanks to Featherdown I have now been able to log in...

skyebluesapphire Sat 01-Dec-12 00:07:14

Ok, so in order to see the latest post you have to scroll through hundreds or am I missing something?

I can't see the latest posts because after scrolling for a while, it crashes!

Any way to make this easier?

Sorry for sounding so critical blush

Timepasses Sat 01-Dec-12 05:56:07

Where has most active gone on iphone? Please bring it back, its my favourite part.

Mine also crashes when scrolling through threads. sad

BabylonPI Sat 01-Dec-12 06:22:45

Can I just have the old app back please?

<curses self for updating>


slalomsuki Sat 01-Dec-12 06:41:03

Completely random order of threads appearing on mine. Not dated or by size, just random. The sort filters need to be sorted

picnicbasketcase Sat 01-Dec-12 07:12:16

Well, it closes suddenly when you're in the middle of reading something and I would really love the normal MN smileys back. The sad face looks asleep and the grin looks evil. Other than that, it's quite good.

ChristmasCountdown Sat 01-Dec-12 08:38:21

Looking again at the iPhone app, the part of the screen that actually scrolls when you are on a thread really is too small. I used the old app all the time, but I think this will really annoy me and put me off using it. Which is a shame because, initial glitches aside I do like it.

I still have no idea what half the emoticons are or what the green heart is for though.

AppleOgies Sat 01-Dec-12 08:42:55

skyblue press the + button in the top rhs and there is an option to flip the thread, making the most recent post the top post.

LookAtHerGo Sat 01-Dec-12 09:17:13

I'm not sure if this issue has been raised or not, I've tried looking back but can't see it in the posts I've read.

When I look at active topics and scroll down I see the same topics repeated as opposed to new ones. So my list goes
Thread 1
Thread 2
Thread 3
Thread 4
Thread 1
Thread 2

And so on. confused

I'm on iPhone.

Flojo1979 Sat 01-Dec-12 10:06:50

I'm on Android and can't find the original post? Is it right at the bottom? So if its got loads of posts I have to scroll through hundreds to see it? Could do with it being at the top.

UrsulaBuffay Sat 01-Dec-12 10:15:57

Active shows the same sort of ten threads over and over, it's like a scooby do buffet.

App has crashed a few times.

Don't like the emoticons.

UrsulaBuffay Sat 01-Dec-12 10:16:55

Am on iPhone btw

I can't use the iphone app at all now for longer threads - it closes itself if I read more than a few posts. I've deleted and reinstalled 4 times.

ChristmasCountdown Sat 01-Dec-12 11:09:12

Rather than an actual refresh button it would be useful if you could just pull down the screen to refresh on the iPhone app.

Pickles77 Sat 01-Dec-12 12:22:57

I prefer the old app too wink

BelissimaLol Sat 01-Dec-12 12:27:19

I'm having the same problem with the iPhone app since I upgraded it yesterday. It crashes all the time and I can't see one of my usual threads!
Also no direct link to topics anymore.
Much prefer the old one!
Why is it cashing though? Can anyone fix this?

SnowyBeardySantaman Sat 01-Dec-12 12:35:36

I'm back on the mobile site now. I find it easier to use tbh. The colour schemes make everything easier to view here.

FlippinHeckItsCold Sat 01-Dec-12 12:43:35

I'm finding it hard to navigate. eg. I read a thread in the active section, the thread is in the Christmas topic and I think 'I wonder what else is in the Christmas topic?' but I can't get to the Christmas board without going all the way back to the topics list and trying to find it. I want to be able to click on the 'Christmas' at the top of the screen when reading a thread and go to that board to see more threads within the same topic.

Yy flipping- I've often thought that about the app.

RibenaFiend Sat 01-Dec-12 13:48:30

LOVE the new and improved iPhone app!! grin

GinandChocolate Sat 01-Dec-12 17:20:44

Sorry this is awful. It doesn't rotate properly. You can't use the zoom function that you can use on other iPad apps. Yet again it isn't a proper app and it crashes all the time.

The website is just so much better.

Tiredmumno1 Sat 01-Dec-12 17:40:38

Please bring back the old app, until this is sorted, it keeps booting me off hmm

niceupthedance Sat 01-Dec-12 18:39:27

Love the new app, but like others I can't flip big threads and keep getting kicked out - annoying.

Sleepyfergus Sat 01-Dec-12 19:38:30

Just not liking this, sorry! I'm on the iPhone app, and find it really hard to read list of threads compared with previous app. Don't know if its the colours, or the layout. Can't put my finger on it.

Also, still unable to read long thread titles in full which was something raised before.

And it's so unstable, keeps crashing.

Jux Sat 01-Dec-12 21:08:04

I have just tried the iPad app again, and opened a short thread with 3 posts. There is no box, nothing below the 2nd reply, so that the entire thread took up about a third of my screen (landscape) and thereafter was blank. The thread was only that long anyway, so it has loaded the whole of it, but nothing else.

That's why I have yet to see the weird emoticons. I might cry.

Boggler Sat 01-Dec-12 21:45:40

Love the new iPad app xx

GlitKnit Sun 02-Dec-12 07:52:19

Adding a message should be the report arrow.

GlitKnit Sun 02-Dec-12 07:53:06

That's iPhone.
I'm back on the old one. This iPhone one is crap

GlitKnit Sun 02-Dec-12 07:53:43

Agree screen too small.

ChablisLover Sun 02-Dec-12 07:59:22

I hate the new Iphone app

Threads are duplicated it keeps crashing

It's not as easy to read or navigate

Bring back the old app

AlbertaCampion Sun 02-Dec-12 08:59:38

I may have to give up on the iPhone version: fine at first, but now it keeps crashing. hmm

AppleOgies Sun 02-Dec-12 09:10:17

Mine seems to have sprung to life?! smile

Polgara2 Sun 02-Dec-12 09:31:41

Same as others on iPad app unfortunately.
Keeps crashing
Can't post as never gets to bottom and if it doesn't crash there is no box.
Threads repeating on list (thought I was going mad!)

Have gone back to safari.

Jux Sun 02-Dec-12 10:16:13

Boggler, what OS have you got on your iPad? I'll just go and see what mine is....

Jux Sun 02-Dec-12 11:03:23

I'm on 5.1.1, and up to date, apparently.

Pickles77 Sun 02-Dec-12 12:11:19

How do you get the old one back?

LittlemissChristmas Sun 02-Dec-12 12:15:47

Does anyone else keep opening to just giving link all the time when they don't mean to? I'm on iPhone and the link wasn't as sensitive before. It's driving me mad!

Updated my IPhone app and it keeps crashing when I go to threads I'm on.

Rather annoying!

skyebluesapphire Sun 02-Dec-12 13:04:47

Mine just keeps crashing when I scroll through a thread...

Not much good really :-(

KnottyLocks Sun 02-Dec-12 13:23:06

Mine keeps chucking me out. I don't think it's me?!

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 02-Dec-12 13:24:38

Yes, sorry, we know there's a problem with the app crashing. Our apologies.

We're trying to get it fixed ASAP.

GlitKnit Sun 02-Dec-12 14:41:26

It's shite as well.

CuriosityCola Sun 02-Dec-12 16:08:26

I still can't get on any of my usual threads hmm. Between that and not having most active, I might have to flounce until this has been resolved.

I also hate the new emoticons. The shocked one looks like someone has dies shock. hmm

CuriosityCola Sun 02-Dec-12 16:09:07


bebejones Mon 03-Dec-12 07:31:46

Need a 'crying' emoticon, MN on my laptop has been SOOOO slow to load for a month+ and now my newly updated iPhone app won't open a single thread without crashing! Have taken 10mins to get to the point on my laptop where I can post this. Feeling cut off sad <wails> sad How am I supposed to shirk my Christmas preparations now?!!

BitBewilderedChristmasTree Mon 03-Dec-12 09:04:53

I have defected to the mobile site. Where emoticons are not cute, but are expressive, and <pointy brackets don't vanish>!


BadFather Mon 03-Dec-12 12:40:31

I've had one crash scrolling to the bottom of this particular thread on iPad but not on the others. I am on the latest offering from Apple though so perhaps it puts up with more!

I am also seeing the <arrow> < arrow > issue.

Hoping they get fixed soon as it's great to have this on my iPad!

From down here in Australia, on HTC android, it's pretty good. I've got no beef with it, except it does randomly chuck me off- although it seems to be if I'm asking it to do too much at once, so it might just be my phone.
I wouldn't want to try typing a long response though; the typing window only shows 2 lines.
But whatever, the text is big, I don't have to hunt my specs to read it.

ClairesTravellingCircus Mon 03-Dec-12 19:11:45

I can't see the xmas emoticons on the app

Starshaped Mon 03-Dec-12 19:47:49

Wish I'd never bloody updated the iPhone app - it's crap <wails>. It throws me out everytime I try and open any thread.

Is it possible to get the old one back?!

Biscuitsandtinsel Mon 03-Dec-12 19:48:27

Oooh I've mentioned pretty about things I don't like (sorry blush) so only fair that I mention that I do like the fact that you can now access PMs from the app. I don't think we could before (or at least I couldn't!) so that's good smile

Really no good without most active. How are we supposed to know when a thread is kicking off?? Read them all!? Emoticons, meh.

Ps, this whinge in relation to iPhone app. Ta.

MyThumbsAreMincepieSmeared Mon 03-Dec-12 21:29:30

I need to have my posts and the OP posts in a different colour. Will stick to the mobile site for now. Well done for making the thread titles readable though.

BabylonElf Mon 03-Dec-12 21:55:47

Still on mobile site here as both iPhone and iPad crash whenever I try to open a thread sad

Just want the old app back.

GreenyEyes Tue 04-Dec-12 06:48:38

Just can't use I'm afraid, crashes almost immediately on my iPhone

Jux Tue 04-Dec-12 13:40:20

IPad: Deleted and reinstalled. Doesn't seem to crash but as there's still no box to post I don't stay on it long.

BuddhaBellyXmasBaubles Tue 04-Dec-12 15:33:30

My most regular thread I post on just crashes the whole app when I open it but let's me open and post in the other two???? Not happy, would love the old app back too hmmangry

AmandinePoulain Tue 04-Dec-12 16:36:24

At the moment 'threads I'm on' only has one thread in it. Sometimes when I refresh the same thread appears 3 times - first it was twice, now thrice confused (<- is that confused? I'm not sure, it looks like a pumpkin to me grin)

Biscuitsandtinsel Tue 04-Dec-12 21:49:58

Whilst you're fixing these other minor (ahem) issues is there any chance you could magic in a feature to be able to link to pages in a post? You know like 'have you seen this thread' sort of thing so you can link from one thread to another?

AmandinePoulain Wed 05-Dec-12 09:49:38

I now have the same 3 threads I'm on each listed 10 times hmm

Jux Fri 07-Dec-12 01:10:47

Amandine, I only just saw your post telling me where the add message boxwas fblush], thanks I'll look now and feel terribly embarrassed that it was there all the time.

Jux Fri 07-Dec-12 01:15:20

OK, I'm terribly embarrassed now. Though scrolling down this thread, it did chuck me off.

Here's how embarrassed I am:


exactly that much! (those emoticons had better work!)

Jux Fri 07-Dec-12 03:09:56

Interestingly, those emoticons (which I typed in, as if I were using Safari) don't show up at all in the App, though I know they're there as I can see them when I use Safari. Using iPad, btw.

I'm not sure which one is the embarrassed one, so I'm going to do them all, and you can choose which one you think most appropriate!


I do quite like these emoticons, actually. Though we should have festive ones too....

When I didn't have the thread flipped, ie, newest post at the top, the App didn't crash when I scrolled down to the beginning.

The advanced search function is much much much better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Yes, I miss Most Active, too.

Can I turn the sidebar off if I want to?

Biscuitsandtinsel Fri 07-Dec-12 06:46:35

When I search for a post by someone the date filters keep changing from what I set them to. So say I change the 'to' date, then the 'from' date, then when I look back, the 'to' date has changed to the same date as the 'from' date, and often the 'from' date changes the year that I set it to (so if I said 1/1/12, when I go back to the search screen it's saying 1/1/11)?

Overall though the search feature looks easier to use and I like the option to select topics. Just that the dates seem to have a bug.

And emoticons, I just can't get used to the different ones. I like the raised eyebrow hmm one, not this frowny one. A raised eyebrow hmm is a lot more lighthearted than a frowning hmm which seems more suspicious - I know this sounds like a teeny thing but when writing things on the Internet it is so easy to lose the context and offend someone (like writing an email etc) and that frowny hmm just seems harsher than the raised eyebrow.

In any event I think the emoticons should be the same on the website and app so the post says the same thing. It doesn't work if they look different and could change the sentiment of a post depending on where you're reading it.

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-Dec-12 10:33:19

<testing 123>

Jux Sat 08-Dec-12 11:58:12

I still can't choose topics beyond mumsnet local in the search function. Can I make a plea for when you're looking at topic choice in search? Can you have MN local as a heading with a further drop down menu with all the different locals in it? There are soooooooo many to scroll through when you don't want one.

I know it's a lot to ask, but I do have cake and will be making pastry this w/e so you could put your order in now as I haven't decided exactly what I'll be using all of it for ..........grin

Thank you.

Biscuitsandtinsel Mon 10-Dec-12 09:03:18

This pointy > bracket problem seems to now only delete some of the words?

I'll test it:


<one two>

<one two three>

<one two three four>

<one two three four five>

<one two three four five six>

<one two three four five six seven>

<one two three four five six seven eight>

<one two three four five six seven eight nine>

<one two three four five six seven eight nine ten>

Biscuitsandtinsel Mon 10-Dec-12 09:04:26

Oh well that didn't work!

Still, there are posts I've seen where when I read it on safari and there's a sentence in pointy brackets and then on the app I get a gap, the last few words and a >

JambalayaWarmMincePie Mon 10-Dec-12 13:11:47

I've just been booted off 17 times in a row. I'm trying to read the 'do you know anyone who's been on Jeremy Kyle' thread and it crashes every time I try to open it. I need to know the answer! grin

JambalayaWarmMincePie Mon 10-Dec-12 13:13:27

18 times.

MumTumWanted Mon 10-Dec-12 20:56:27

Crashes every time I try to open my favourite thread not happy please sort the app mumsnethq!!!'

ReindeerOutdoors Mon 10-Dec-12 20:58:46

Please can we just have the old app back for a while until this new one is sorted and it gets the proper mn smilies back?

Biscuitsandtinsel Thu 13-Dec-12 06:52:30


My bold doesn't work?

Nor the Christmas smilies - they just come up as normal ones

sad (You'll have to imagine the Santa hat on it)

Biscuitsandtinsel Thu 13-Dec-12 06:52:52

By the way, that is on the new updated app

Biscuitsandtinsel Thu 13-Dec-12 06:56:47

Ok, I was doing the Christmas smileys wrong, but when I do them right, they don't work at all sad

So I excitedly download the iPhone app update...and the emoticons are still all crappy, I can't see any festive emoticons and witticisms in <> are still invisible! Argh!

<Turns green and bursts out of clothes>

Oh hang on...I saw that. I retract the latter, but objection to emoticons still stands.

But bolding doesn't work! I am on EDGE MNHQ! On the EDGE!

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 13-Dec-12 10:34:48

Quick test smilegrinwinkshock

You'll need to re-sit that test, DarrenMumsnet. Emoticons remain decidedly forrin.

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 13-Dec-12 10:49:48

<another test>

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 13-Dec-12 10:52:30

<on iPhone this time>

DarrenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 13-Dec-12 10:59:32

I'm aware of the emoticons not being any good quite as they seem and am speaking to the developers. I can confirm that <adding these arrows> should now be working. I've also tested the problem of threads crashing for various reasons and this should be fixed too.

Now for the emoticons smile <prepares for a bit of a rumble>

Jux Thu 13-Dec-12 11:41:24

I don't mind the emoticons <Jux runs away fast cackling maniacally after throwing the cat among the pigeons>

chrome100 Thu 13-Dec-12 11:46:42

It's still crashing for me. Please fix it- I miss it! I managd to read one thread yesterday for the first time in ages but then the next thread I tried to read crashed as usual

imdreamingofaskyebluechristmas Thu 13-Dec-12 11:52:32

I have had an update on iphone this morning and fingers crossed seems to be working...

ReindeerOutdoors Thu 13-Dec-12 13:20:43

Hi! Thank you for starting to sort it. Please can I put in a request for, as well as emoticons returning to how they should look, to also be able to see most active discussions?

I did the update on the app, and now bold doesn't work, and characters such as speech marks and apostrophes are coming out as code.
Please fix it.

StiffyByng Thu 13-Dec-12 17:01:28

The update has fixed crashing for me, so thank you!

But the search function is a nightmare. It won't take me to a specific post on a long thread, just the thread, which then takes forever to scroll through. I have to say I rather miss the individual pages.

Also I end up clicking through to JustGiving about every minute while I'm scrolling. The link is either too big or too high on the page. It's driving me mad.

Jux Thu 13-Dec-12 17:34:56

No crashing here! Well done that man!

As pne has to log in when using the app, does that mean there can be no lurkers?

Off to check the search function.

ChristmasCountdown Thu 13-Dec-12 18:52:43

Have just downloaded the updated iPhone version so fingers crossed that's the end to crashing.

I still don't like that there's only really about half the screen available for scrolling or the refresh button. It would be good if you could pull the screen to refresh like most other apps.

Also, if I go into the 'more' it will still be open at the last thread I looked at in my topics instead of the 'more' list of options - I'm sure this didn't happen on the old app.

AmandinePoulain Thu 13-Dec-12 20:07:15

Thanks for fixing the brackets. Bold isn't working for me either any more though sad

AmandinePoulain Thu 13-Dec-12 21:35:15

Pound signs no longer show up.

And My Topics is weird - it either shows TIO or the last thread I was reading rather than a list of topics confused

Christmas- about it showing the last thread you were reading- I actually like that feature as if you click off the thread by mistake you can get back o where you were without having to scroll through the whole thread. If you just tap twice it takes you back to the list.

ChristmasCountdown Fri 14-Dec-12 07:27:44

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

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sat 15-Dec-12 03:36:43

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

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

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

nannynick Wed 26-Dec-12 17:37:00

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.

magentastardust Sat 29-Dec-12 23:48:17

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

KnockMeDown Wed 02-Jan-13 18:33:25

Hi - downloaded the android app earlier. It's a shame that there are no pages on the threads, and no navigation to first, last etc. But to get around this, I changed the settings to last post at the top. This works better, so all good.

But now when I have gone on to Mumsnet on my laptop, all the threads I read are flipped! How do I get different settings on the app and on my laptop?

Would appreciate some help / advice. Thank-you!!

Sleepyfergus Thu 03-Jan-13 22:55:28

Come across another problem. It's prob already been highlighted, but in case it hasn't....

Went to do a search and wanted restrict my search to within Style and Beauty. When scrolling through all the options (which are alphabetised) it only goes as far as Mumsnet Local - Channel Islands. So no option to chose a section beyond this. Hence I couldn't select S&B.

HTH and can be fixed as its great to have the potential to narrow down searches. Thanks smile

Jux Sat 05-Jan-13 15:04:34

Yes, I mentioned problems with the search function, but it probably got lost amongst all the crashes and stuff.

It still gets stuck on Local - Channel Islands, tech!

(I do like the emoticons, btw wink, but wonder if the sad face could be blue, the jealous, green? Or is that what the heart is for? Is there one for "I'm being dim again"? And I'm not entirely clear what these ones are: sad hmm but will look here via Safari, and I expect all will become clear!)


Jux Sat 05-Jan-13 15:07:22

Ah! I see now.

Search function! Go for it, we know you can do it!

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 05-Jan-13 16:12:52

Aha, thanks for re-flagging the topics search issue - we will ask Tech to take a look.

Jux Sat 05-Jan-13 18:09:25

Thanks, Rowan. <feels terribly sorry for poor tech><offers coffee and cake>

I'm on iPad, btw. OS up to date.

Sleepyfergus Sun 06-Jan-13 18:08:59

Thanks! I should have mentioned that I'm on the iPhone, all up to date too.

Jux Mon 14-Jan-13 20:26:40

Deleted, reinstalled (iPad).

Search topic still stuck on Local - Channel Islands. sad sorry.

geekette Sat 26-Jan-13 20:20:55

been using the android app for a while now.
I like it but :

the sticky part of my active discussions list has not changed since the first run. it contains the commercial bits etc. it is never updated.

I cannot add topics to "my topics" without going through the list of topics. sometimes I stumble on a thread and want to have more of such threads but need to make a mental note of the topic and go searching for it...

will keep it short for now... thanks.

geekette Mon 28-Jan-13 04:58:00

oh and I can see the topic a post is I at the top but I can't click on that to see more posts in that topic.
