Seasons greetings one and all

We're happy to announce our new Talk App for Android is now ready to go and available for download from the Google Play store, just in time for Christmas too. fgrin

As this is our first crack at the Android version, we will be adding more features and updates as we go along. At this stage we'd really appreciate your feedback (good and bad...) about using the app and if it's working for you. Let us know how you get on.

Many thanks to all of our testers. Please delete the test app and download this one instead.

How do I log in? Usually log in through FB

on it now, I don't like change though 😔

Cocolepew Fri 23-Dec-16 14:47:49

oh look it worked

the o ly thing I dislike is "Threads I'm on" and not being able to see replies without clicking and scrolling. I like the little preview you get on pc.

I like the simplicity of it. Not too many buttons for my fat fingers to catch
I would like the option to change the colour of the main pages - purple is a bit dark for me.
On a long thread it takes ages to scroll down. Could we have it where a thread is set out in pages like on the main site or an option to scroll to the last viewed post or even the ability to flip the thread?
Can we highlight OP's comments as well please so that it's easier to find replies?

It won't let me log in...

ginauk84 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:55:20

Okay how do I add a photo to my post on this app?

ginauk84 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:57:07

I like how the OP's comments are in a different colour from everyone else. How you can quickly refer back to OP when typing a reply. Emojis are easy as is different types of texts.

Like the layout but won't use it until the bookmark feature is working, as half the threads I'm watching have hundreds of posts and it doesn't take you to where you left off so not really useable.

fairgame84 Fri 23-Dec-16 14:57:36

I found the flip button! grin

Took several attempts to login, but am on now.

White script on a purple background is very difficult to read - please look at this. It will be prohibitive for people with sight issues in particular.

However, thank you for sorting an Android app!

How do I customise it so the OP threads and mine are shown in different colours. Everything is on a white background at the moment

Superb, been waiting for this for ages!
Be good if I could remember my password though. Made it stupidly complicated after all of the security furore and now haven't got a clue!

LotisBlue Fri 23-Dec-16 15:27:34

Apparently my device isn't compatible with this sad

pklme Fri 23-Dec-16 15:43:29

Don't suppose a windows one is in the pipeline? No, didn't think so. Sigh. Should have got a Samsung...

ginauk84 Fri 23-Dec-16 15:45:04

There is a bit of a bug - in my 'I'm On' list of chats if I click on one it takes me to a different chat.

mypussyiscalledCaramel Fri 23-Dec-16 16:03:59

When will it be compatible with kindle fire?

ginauk84 Fri 23-Dec-16 16:05:12

It isn't always allowing me to paragraph properly. Dispite me hitting enter twice.

This is a new paragraph which didn't work last time I posted so am testing here to see if it works.

RoseValleyRambles Fri 23-Dec-16 16:20:58

Yey! thank you!

TwatteryFlowers Fri 23-Dec-16 16:35:20

I was testing the app but it kept crashing so much that it was unusable so didn't bother downloading the last update!
