  1. 3.0 Feedback- Lists, Fonts, Refresh, Search

    I have been a HootSuite customer for a few years and have survived a few updates. My immediate reaction to the 3.0 update was negative, but I decided to wait a week to see if I got used to it. Some things I did get used to, some I didn't. Most of all, my Twitter usage declined a lot because of the updates. Here are specific things that I believe need to be addressed.

    1. The font is too small and grey. It hurts my eyes to use the app. I saw many people comment on this in the Google…

      First of all, thank you very much for using Hootsuite over the years and providing your feedback.

      As you noted, v3 was a big change and takes some getting used to. We’ve been using it internally for months and tweaked a lot of things to try to get the best experience for the most users.

      To address you points…

      Re #1: Feedback well received. We already rolled out an update (v3.0.3) with a minor increase in font size and darkening of colour. We’re working with our designers to make it even more legible.

      Re #2: Jump-to-top was based off user feedback to make it easier to get back to the top of the list.

      The ‘pencil’ is called a “floating action bar” and is part of Android’s new design paradigm called Material Design. You’ll see that style across all major Android apps (like Gmail and Calendar).

      • The way the "jump to top" button keeps disappearing is distracting

        The new jump to top button in v3 is very distracting as it disappears and reappears. Please make it smaller and always present.

        • fix search function on droid tablet app.

          unlike phone app, can't search exclusively for users. Add a drop down menu to select search type just like phone and desktop versions

            Your new updated interface is the polar opposite of convenience in technology. Users should not have to scroll thru all messages to get to the newest ones. Needs work guys!!

            • Better Android Wear support

              Currently, I can see my twitter notifications on my Android Wear device. It would be really nice if I could interact with them. Most important features:
              - Reply to a tweet -> prefix reply with the @mention
              - Favourite a tweet
              - Retweet a tweet -> likely native retweet makes the most sense on a watch.

                  • make it possible to customize the audience of Facebook posts from the mobile app

                    I like to customize who sees my Facebook posts, which I can do from Hootsuite's website but not the app. Pretty please? The new updated app is a TON better btw

                      • Train Before You Change

                        Please make simple-to-use tutorials available and publicize their existence BEFORE you move users over to an upgraded system; it's very frustrating to struggle with unexpected changes--particularly when solutions to problems aren't obvious.

                          This would be a huge time-saver!! Is this even a possibility? Will it be added in the future?

                            Google play only supports part of the market for android apps.

                              With the previous Android app version, one could click on a sync button and it would update new posts and also the Likes in posts already shown. Now it is impossible to get the correct number of likes, it stays just the way it was when the app downloaded the post

                              • create default / primary account

                                Your new update automatically adds the avatar of the first listed twitter account to the profile page. I'd prefer to define which account is my primary or default account. Obviously for many of us the first alphabetical account is not our main account.

                                A side effect of this setting is if I tweet without thinking, it is sent from your chosen primary account, not the one I consider my primary account. Your choice is not the one I've selected as my default account to post to either as selected online or via mobile.

                                I often pop in to tweet without…

                                  • Letras pequenas

                                    A nova versão ficou ótima. Mais leve, design. Porem a letra dos twetes ficaram pequenas. Se tivesse a opção de editar o tamanho da fonte, ficaria ótimo. Assim como uma opção de alteração da cor do tema.

                                    • Revert Android Hootsuite App to Pre-Version 3.0.2 Design

                                      Newlook of Android app is awful. The big blue pencil overlaps the feed I'm trying to read.The tab labels are hard to see. You erased everything I preferred about Hootsuite.

                                      • Remove or make removable the floating compose button

                                        Remove the floating compose button. It's making Hootsuite impossible to use properly on mobile.

                                        Put it in top where it's supposed to be.

                                        • provide the option to use bit.ly links.

                                          I use Hootsuite pro and would like the option to use my bit.ly account on Hootsuite desktop and Android platforms.
