What the FRIFF happened to my MN App? I finally gave in and updated it yesterday, and a) It's gone funny colours, b) The smilies are evil-looking, and c) I can't use the damn thing because it will let me read threads but not post on there because I'm 'not connecting', despite being able to use all my other Apps and now use the mobile site.

I want my App to work!!

Hello. And yes, we have some ongoing 'issues' with the app, we're afraid.

We know about the smilies angry but it's strange that it's not letting you post, MerryCouthyMows.

Sorting out app problems does take us longer than sorting out other Tech problems because there are lots of extra stages involving outside parties.

But we are on the case. And we are sorry it's less than ideal at the mo.

Might be an idea to keep on using the mobile site, if that's working well for you, until we can release the app fixes though...

My active convos page just repeats the same few threads.

Wish I hadn't updated confused.

How do I see sent pms?

Yeah- i agree - hate the new app and the 'smileys' are evil looking and not clear grin
Who in MN headquarters approved them???

We've posted on your other thread, spudmurphy, but we didn't "approve" them, honest. There was some almighty glitch - we're on the case.

The new app doesn't seem to be able to cope with putting in the pound sign- it goes all funny

I like it better despite the iced gem envy and the shock dead body. The evil smileys do take on different meanings i think.

You don't have to go through pages and pages of thread to get to where you were as it's all one page now. And it's landscape, that's better.

How do you bookmark on the app anyone?

MerryCouthyMows Tue 01-Jan-13 13:17:50

Ok, new odd thing with the updated App...

When I type in a pound sign, it posts something like "&pound" rather than a pound sign?!

Here : £

I'll try some others.

Ok, I'm not the only person to notice this...

Sort it aaaaaaaaaaht, HQ!

It works for me!

MerryCouthyMows Tue 01-Jan-13 13:19:39

I'll post Tech some more gin...

The punctuation glitch is annoying though

It is annoying that you can't copy text on the app.

No, the £ thing s annoying, but most frustrating is the loop of active convos, scroll down and the same few keep re-appearing.

I've only just realised I've been posting a jealous face instead of a heart blush

MerryCouthyMows Wed 02-Jan-13 11:11:57

I've given up using the smiley shortcuts, and am typing them in in the old-fashioned way, like we did before there were shortcuts...
