I miss the highlights too but other than that (and the advert that i keep clicking on by accident when i'm scrolling) i think its great.

EggNogRules Tue 27-Nov-12 18:02:12

grin I like the look and ease of adding emoticons.
sad Lack of highlighting.

So far, so good. wink

Checking it out smile will take some time to get used to

MikeLitoris Tue 27-Nov-12 18:08:05

Well, I don't like having to flip every thread I'm on and it would be loads easier if I could just post instead of having to press 'add message'

Apart from that im happy grin grin

HoratiaWinwood Tue 27-Nov-12 18:08:57

just checking that this works and this and this

grin ooh shiny, no more scrolling to see what to use for smileys, or flicking between keyboards to find [ and ] except for links. hurrah

MikeLitoris Tue 27-Nov-12 18:09:36

Ok, i worked out the flip thing.

HoratiaWinwood Tue 27-Nov-12 18:09:57

Livelongandprosper Tue 27-Nov-12 18:16:31

OohMrDarcy Tue 27-Nov-12 18:17:06

although... would be easier if you could still have your own and OP posts in different colour!

thanks HQ

HoratiaWinwood Tue 27-Nov-12 18:20:14

Serious feedback: it is easy to manoeuvre for seasoned MNetters, but it would be utterly baffling to a new user, I think. The website is bad enough but the app...

GlaikitFizzog Tue 27-Nov-12 18:20:51

eh its flipped the thread without me asking it to confused poor bear want on the liist

SummerRain Tue 27-Nov-12 18:21:54

I'm torn!

chocolateistheenemy Tue 27-Nov-12 19:19:01

Right. Off for a nose around!

JollyJock Tue 27-Nov-12 19:22:08

this is going to take some getting used to. but it does work smile

YankNCock Tue 27-Nov-12 19:22:48

Yay! It said only 5+ downloads in Google play store but clearly it's more than that. Was thinking I was a seriously early adopter. Bad news right away for me, can't see what I'm typing on HTC wildfire s as keyboard takes up too much of screen!

MissLToeishavingsantasbabyboo Tue 27-Nov-12 19:24:08

I'm in grin Chocolate you are a genius!!! thank you.
