It’s looking now like the Android app is fixed and everything is working! Thanks everyone for being patient while I tried to get this fixed and a huge thanks to everyone who’s left a positive review and to everyone who has edited their negative reviews to make them positive. If for any reason the app is still crashing please uninstall it completely and then reinstall it. This has fixed the issue for several people and make sure you’ve got version 1.2 installed. If the app still crashes after uninstalling and re-installing it please click the report button after the crash and I’ll get a notification in my Android Developers account with all the information I’ll need to get someone to fix it. That’s actually a pretty cool feature. Enjoy! ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
So I’ve just submitted the third version of the Android app to Google Play. The developer completely re-wrote the database and says he’s sure it’s fixed this time so hopefully now it works. It kind of sucks not having an Android phone because I can’t really test it. Version 1.2 of the app should be live in a couple of hours so download the update and let me know if it’s working now. Hopefully it is!
So a lot of people were reporting that the Android app was crashing right when you open it. I just spend the last couple of hours with a developer and we think we’ve identified some kind of database error that was causing the crash. Hopefully it’s now fixed. The new version 1.1 of the app has been submitted to Google Play and should be available in a couple of hours. If you’ve already downloaded the app you should get some sort of notification saying there’s a free update. I’m not 100% sure how it works in Android. Please update to version 1.1 and then leave a comment if it’s working now. If you left a negative review because it crashed and it’s now working please do me a huge favour and remove the negative review and put a 5-star one instead. Positive reviews are incredibly important to helping the app get found in the app store especially since there are so many copycat apps that have stolen content and graphics from this site. If you update to version 1.1 and you’re still having problems. Please do not post a negative review. Leave a comment here or email me at (removed) and let me know what the error is, what kind of phone you’re using and what version of Android you’re using. I’ll set up another meeting with this developer and we’ll try to get any other issues fixed then. Thank you very much if you downloaded the app and thank you even more if you left a positive review. Please let me know if the app’s working now or if we’re still having problems. One more thing, if you haven’t downloaded the app yet don’t download version 1. Just wait a couple of hours and download version 1.1.
Edit: the app is still not working. I have a developer going over everything right now and I’ll post an update when we release another version to the store.
Well it took way longer than I originally planned and a ton of stuff went wrong during the process but the Japanese Emoticons Android app is finally finished and available for download on Google Play! I ended up having to hire a second developer to help me finish and submit everything but everything is good now and I’m quite excited that this app is finally available. Making an Android app I’ve now learned is pretty different from making an iOS app so the Android app doesn’t match the iOS one 100% but it’s really close. So click the link below to download the app and enjoy and a final note please leave a 5-star review. That is the absolute best way to show your support. The more good reviews the app gets the better chance it has of people finding it.
