App works fine, but odd visual choices The app works for me, but the very loose spacing of chats listed on the screen is annoying. I see only 8.5 chats at once, with a lot of wasted white space, where you could fit up to 14, still with good readability. Are you maybe constrained by Google's Material Design guidelines? And the reddish icon is ugly.
Uh, red icon...NO After spending five minutes trying to find a setting that changed, I uninstalled it then reinstalled it, just to find out the red icon is a FEATURE. What?? Bad choice guys. Just put the blue one back with the beta flag please. Thought something was wrong with my phone. It looks terrible. Don't respond to this review justifying it, like you did to Aaron Rogers review also. Instead, listen to your user base and fix it.
(shrug) I don't mind the red icon.
Better, but not quite there. Landscape support! Finally usable again. Doesn't have the open chats overview of the old design, unfortunately. I've changed the rating from 2 to 3 stars, accordingly. I've been keeping around a v2.7 apk to use, but now I can finally use the latest version. However, there are still numerous issues with kb controls. Most notably, Enter does not send the message. Still, this is a step in the right direction. The new beta icon is nice, also.
Getting better every week Recent updates with avatars and new beta icon is (thumbsup). Same for landscape support. Small FYI: the font size for the navigation menu seems too small on my phone (Xperia Z3 Compact). Keep the updates coming!
New design not great The font is too large. And the left sidebar where the avatars go makes the text column too narrow. Especially since we use /code blocks a lot, it's harder to read.
- New - An all new Share To HipChat dialog shows you the conversations you *want* to see. We think. Maybe. If not, you can now search from it too!
- New - Hardware keyboards will send the message when you press return. Shift+Return enters a new line.
- Fixed - A crash affecting a very small number of devices running Android 4.0. We still <3 Ice Cream Sandwich.
