Shout Mobile Beta : Suggestions and Improvements
First of all congrats to RxPG for improvising and providing this new feature...This thread is for discussing the "SHOUT MOBILE" and for its improvement...Those who are using it kindly contribute.

UNANSWERED: Is it just one exam for DNB SS and FET in 2019?

My views on first use....

The interface is really nice and simple...

It's retaining the words I WRITE
IN CAPS...unlike the one on the site
which converts all to small case...

There is a problem during first time login directly into the SM link...

It's not opening the profile of the user upon clicking on his/her name....unlike the one on the site....

Direct reply feature to a given shout is a nice addition...would be better if the reply is prefixed by the other user's name....

I will post more while using it...

Forgot to mention this one....there is no access to older shouts icon_sad.gif

Few more....

Addition of dialogue box for direct shouts to the main page will be nice...

And as told earlier the reply feature needs improvement i.e. it's not prefixing the name of the user to whom reply is made.

Hope that RxPG team consider these points....rest all seems great:-) icon_smile.gif

And a live character count similar to that in twitter is not too much to ask icon_biggrin.gif

It's not showing the notification bar when used in nokia browser...Is this happening only in my handset....are there only other nokia users?

Thanks for the excellent feedback. We are giving you 500 additional credits for this. Anyone else posting feedback on shoutmobile will get additional credits as well.

We have kept the code base minimal to ensure fast loading times on mobile internet. For this we had to focus only on the essential features. We considered the above feature non essential, so left it out. However we can reconsider if there is a significant demand for the above feature.

The mobile login module is under development.

You would be pleased to know that it is now available in version 2 of SHOUT MOBILE. It is still a very basic profile, but we would add more features to it once our tech team finalise the shout mobile.

It was already the case however a bug prevented it to be seen on mobile devices. We have now fixed it.

We are developing it. However you can see some older shouts by looking at the profile of that user in shout mobile.

We did not understand this request? There is already a compose button on main page, do you want the box to be there?

parasbanka wrote:

We removed this feature as it was slowing up the application due to use of excess javascript. However it still word counts in the background and would not allow you to type more than 140 characters.

It is a browser related issue - either your browser is not capable of running latest version of javascript or javascript is disabled in the browser options. Please try with a different browser like opera mobile or firefox mobile.

And here is a screencap for shoutmobile. It would be released for everyone soon, however if you want an early inivitation in return of some feedback to us - make a shout!

First of all thank you for your reply (and the credits) icon_smile.gif

It's great to see the prompt improvements...

As of the dialogue box in the main screen...I was saying that a [dialogue box] where we can directly write along with the [shout] tab will be better instead of the only [compose] tab....It will enable us to shout from the main page only instead of a second page...

Rest issues are fine...

...and yes the notification bar works fine with opera mobile icon_smile.gif may be there are some issues with my nokia browser...

Thanks for the link @RXPG_Team. A very nice initiative.
The page needs to be refreshed to see new shouts. New shouts should automatically come there. like we see new tweets on twitter.
Thanks.

The notification option is already there - in the form of a yellow bar that appears on top of the page if new shouts are available. It would not show if no new shouts are available.

P.S. You get 500 credits for posting the feedback.

While posting feedback, do post the make of your mobile device and browser. If possible, posting screenshots to show us how it looks on your device would be really useful (you can use a camera if you don't know how to take screenshot on your device).

We welcome reports on any annoyances, feature problems, suggestions etc here. We would seriously consider all suggestions.

As we said earlier, all feedback posted in this thread will earn upto 500 RxPG credits!

one more thing is introduce group chat option / link to go to my favourite list .... so that i can quickly access my discussion threads


drrakesh139

RxPG_Team


Great feedback so far! Judging by your initial response we have commissioned our tech team to integrate instant messages in version 2.5 (Nov 2012) and Forums in version 3 (Dec/Jan 2012).

Version 2.0 would be released for all members pretty soon.


drrakesh139


@ rxpg team -- waiting for the advanced features ....

Firstly to make it look more appealing ,POP UP msgs in bubble form can be tried
Secondly, u should try to make emoticons on shout box screen.
Thirdly, shout should be on the same screen ,no other page should get open..
Fourthly,each person should be able to select the color & font of the text and bubbles...
Hope it helps..all the best:)

Yes, and we had to do that to fit more content on small screens. We can increase that a bit if there is an absolute need to do so. Any more users with font size problem?

Small fonts....nokia browser
