Over the last several weeks I’ve been doing a massive clean-up and re-organization of the site. What I did was take each category and break it up into smaller sections of similar emoticons. I did this for several reasons:
There was some kind of weird bug in the Android app that was causing all the icons in the menus to display the app icon instead of the correct icons with the Japanese Kanji characters. It made the app look pretty bad too. I’m pleased to say though that that bug has been fixed. Version 1.4 of the app is now available and if you’ve already downloaded the app you can install the update for free. I’m also pleased to announce that like the iOS version there’s now a free Android version! The free Android version doesn’t have all the emoticons that are available in the paid version and it does have ads but the favourites menu, create an emoticon screen and everything else works the same so you can test out the app first and see if you like it before downloading the paid version.
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.
