  1. Add Evernote to the applications for Read Later

    We used to be able to choose the application to send Saved Tweets to, right now you offer 3. It would be great if you could add Evernote to that list! Thanks.

      • it would be nice if the app remembered where you scrolled to and not just left it at the bottom of the feeds

        Scroll, exit android app, come back, starts at the last place you scrolled not at the bottom

            We’ll be looking to add a timestamp preference option to Android in the future. Currently the change you are noticing is that the timeline now shows relative time-stamps, where it used to show absolute. Thanks for your feedback!

              Happy to hear you’re enjoying the Syndicator! We’ll look at bringing this to the Android app in the future.

            • Include "Retweet as is" a tweet in auto-scheduling function for Android

              So my use case :

              See a tweet worth retweet, tap it, tap retweet button,

              (hm.. but I want to queue it in auto-scheduler),
              tap "With comments",

              (wew, the tweeter's @name added up, sometimes used more than 140 chars), (now I should delete the @name or clean it up a bit or shorten some words),

              tap auto-schedule button, specify scheduling option, tap "Schedule", tap send.

              • allow for the writing/saving/sending of drafts in the android mobile version.

                We regularly live tweet events and being able to pre-write tweets such as award winners would really make my life easier. I could pre-write the award show name and category, then just fill in the winner's name and send the tweet as they are announced - like at tonight's Canadian videogame awards. The draft button does not work in the web version on a tablet, either at least on android.

                  Great idea! We’d love to make drafts available in the mobile apps as well.

                • Interleave multiple streams in Android widget

                  A la TweetDeck. I'd like to have ONE widget that displays a set of chosen streams as one continuous feed. TweetDeck did it right, and even color coded the backgrounds to the type of stream the item belonged to.

                  The HootSuite Android widget has way too much deadspace on the header and footer to pack multiple widgets onto a page, and I can't easily see the time relationship between tweets and Facebook posts with 2 seperate widgets.

                  Heck, you could even just allow the widget to display one Tab as a Stream. I already have the streams on a tab…

                  • Allow the smartphone application to save more than one "Save for later" message.

                    I'm using your Android application (v. 2.4.9.2) and like to use the "Save for later" functionality.

                    The problem is after saving 3 or 4 tweets I tried to send via GMail, but only the last saved one is actually present in the mail.

                      • New Social Network Picker is not mobile friendly

                        The new Social Network Picker has too many steps. The drop down is not mobile friendly. I understand the need for it, but why punish all of us for the few who accidentally post the wrong things on their biz accounts. Maybe it can be a functionality choice in settings, but the multiple steps take away from the real time posting that is the luxury of using Hootsuite on mobile devices.

                              We’ll consider widget sizing options in the future. Thanks for your feedback!

                            • allow for a setting to always shorten links and/or auto schedule like the ability to choose to always post to certain networks (android app)

                              I like being able to get a message out immediately, but most of my content is collections from others which can go out at any time. Would be great to be able to add an option to always auto-schedule.

                              • Allow "Retweet as is" for a pinned account

                                In HootSuite for Android, when you try and retweet, the retweet as is button is inactive until you select an account. Can you allow for the "pinned" accounts to be selected automatically?

                                • Outbox access in mobile app for Android

                                  In the mobile app for Android, I need manual access to the outbox fr messages with failed scheduling/delivery. This is crucial in Africa as we have a lot of data signal interruptions and I often need to go back to failed messages in the Outbox in order to manually resendu them. At this stage, either im an idiot, or it's only accessible via the warning notification, which for some reason doesn't always show up, causing me to loose several of my tweets

                                      We’ll look at adding support for all of our App Directory apps in the future.

                                      • search people on andriod app.

                                        The option to search for a person takes you to 1 twitter user with the name you type in.
                                        We need a proper search for people list.

                                          Thank you for your feedback. We are hoping to add this functionality for Android users in the near future.

                                        • The changes made to how a user chooses which accounts to post from in the mobile app are horrendous. You took a streamlined, easy-to-use pro

                                          The changes made to how a user chooses which accounts to post from in the mobile app are horrendous. You took a streamlined, easy-to-use process and made it far clunkier. Please change it back. This is seriously enough to make me switch to another platform. What used to be simple and quick now takes more time and requires more steps. I manage social media for multiple companies and can't afford this change. Horrible!
