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

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

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.

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

Oooooo excitement.

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

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

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.
