Android :: How To Group Message Chat With IPhone IOS4 Users?

Jul 27, 2010

Yes, unfortunately I have friends with iPhones. With iOS4, they can basically do a group text chat that has all the users receiving the messages from everyone in one location and all messages are saved. This is basically like a chat group using text messages. My question is whether android has any apps that can allow us to "join" these chats. I asked my friend to add me as a user to the chat but all that accomplishes is letting me get individual messages from each member of the chat. If I wanted to reply to the group, I would have to reply to each one individually.


Motorola Droid :: Need A Chat Program That Supports XMPP , Jabber And 'group Chat'

I need a chat program that supports XMPP and Jabber, plus it needs to support 'group chat', that seems to be the kicker. When I was on WM platform the only one I found was Octrotalk, but they only support WM.

Do you think that was the method to their madness behind this Samsung galaxy s device? Thinking that they would make something as close to the iPhone as possible for Android? Clearly it was no accident.
- same app screen
- slides app screen the same
- same looking app icons on app screen
- same green phone icon
- same bottom row dock space for 4 apps
- same phone design and size (galaxy being slightly taller)
- etc. (If I missed anything)

Android :: Useful Switchers / Warning For Users / Message To Devs

Sep 10, 2009

Recently the Dev of the AWESOME app "Useful Switchers" made a change to his free app.If you update the app now through the marketplace, it will turn it in to a "trial version" which will expire Sept 14 2009. You will then have to get it for $0.99. Note that it won't be a better version, or a pro version, it will be the same thing. Here is what the Dev (turmeric on these forums I believe) says in the updated description in the marketplace:"Now I develop new version 2.0. If you donate, big thanks for support. I really need some money. I especially make smaller price ($0.99). This version is trial now (expired Sep 14 2009)."As you might imagine the reaction in the comments has been very harsh, and a lot of people are reducing their rating for the app.Before anyone attacks me (or others) with suggestions that we are freeloaders, pirates, or mean for trying to stop the Dev from profiting from his hard work, let me be clear; I _completely_ support any Dev's right to make money from their app. If it is valuable to me, I am even more than willing to pay for it. We aren't talking about a lot of money, it's only 99 cents, and useful switchers is a great app (I use it all the time, every day).

Most people in the MP comments are upset not that the Dev wants to make money, but that it seems like a tricky, underhanded way to do it. The app they have used will suddenly expire after an update. It seems almost like a bait and switch. Yes, the Dev does explain in the app description what will happen when you update, so users who updated without reading it really only have themselves to blame (Caveat Emptor after all). The Dev maybe could have gone about this better, perhaps making it clearer (large words in bold) that the app would change to trial software after the update, and maybe he could have extended the trial period (it ends VERY shortly), but still, it's there to read.
My_ problem with the Dev's actions are really more a problem with the Marketplace in general, and how Google and phone carriers are handling it. You see, I'm in Canada, and apparently in Canada we can't be trusted with our own money, so we can't have access to paid apps (yes, that's me being snarky). Many other countries are in the same boat.So, turmeric, I'm talking to you now (and all other Devs who might read this); Your app is great, and I would GLADLY pay for it... but I can't. Once it becomes a paid app I will not even be able to see it in the marketplace. Even if I were to send you a donation now, if I update the app it will stop working on Sept 14 and I will be screwed.

Some will argue that it's still the Dev's right to change it to a paid app, and boo hoo so sorry, too bad for me. Well, i agree 100%. I agree the dev has the right, but there is something else to consider... customer service and his reputation as a dev.There are LOTS of users who, if they update, will lose the app on Sept 14, and not be able to get the paid version because they can't access paid apps. These people are lost potential customers for _future_apps when they can eventually access paid apps. You will turn they away.So, what are the alternatives? Do what many other Devs have done. Make a free version and a paid "pro" version so those without access to paid apps can still get a very useful app. Or, if you don't like that, and insist on making the app a paid app only, surely there must be a way (as with software for computers) to use an unlock key to get the full version? that way users could download a free "locked" version from the store, and pay the dev separately through his web site for a key that could be typed manually into the app to unlock it.

Android :: Way To Consolidate Sending Message To Group

Oct 18, 2010

I love Handcent and I know it's super-easy to send message to a group of contacts but I have two questions that I have not been able to figure out:
1) is there a way to create a group and name it instead of having it appear as just a list of people?
2) whenever I send a message to a group it shows each individual message getting there a way to 'consolidate' this so when I send a message to the group I only see the message I sent once instead of once for each contact it is being sent to?

Android :: Way To Have Group Contacts / Text Message

Mar 16, 2010

Alright so I REALLY need to create a group contact folder. You see I have to manage about 10 guys and its convenient that they all have cellphones whats NOT convenient is I can't find a way to put them into a group and text them with one group message! I need to make sure these guys show up to where they are needed and texting all 10 of them separately is a pain in the rear end. So far the other threads don't seam of any use.

HTC Desire :: Group Text - Get Message Pending

Jul 8, 2010

I have come across a compelling problem with my Orange bill since getting my Desire. I set up a group in contacts and a number of times have attempted to send a group text. There are about 8 people in that group but when I pressed send I would get message pending.

Some members of the group would not receive anything whilst others would get a text hours later.

I tried a couple of more times last month then gave up.

This week my bill came with a 10 charge for photo messages, as if I would use this crap way of sending pics when I have access to email. All the group messages were charged at 25p per person.

To give Orange their due, they will reimburse me the money on goodwill but I certainly won't be trying the group thing again.

Android :: Bluetooth Chat - Pass Complete Incoming Message

Nov 12, 2010

I am using Bluetooth Chat sample app from Android website.

The readMessage string (in the switch case Message_Read) sends selected characters and omits few special characters. Following is the code from Bluetooth Chat app (from Android website).I am not able to receive the complete message in the format which I have mentioned in the code. It gets displayed in multiple lines and many characters get deleted. Any suggestion why this is happening?

HTC Desire :: Message Alert Icon Shows Message - But No Message

May 26, 2010

I've been having a problem with my desire home screen (in particular the sms icon) and I'm wondering if anyone else knows how to fix it.

Recently my messages icon has been showing the little "1" in a green circle indicating I have an unread message. Problem is, I've gone through every list of messages I have on the device and there are no messages I haven't read and the "1" stays there. The only ways I've found to get rid of it are to either delete the icon and then put it back or to use Advance Task Killer and kill messages application. I'm not using any fancy apps for messages, just the default one.

My email counter is always perfect, this only seems to affect my sms. Also, my girlfriend told me she sent me a message a few days ago, but I never received it. Not sure if that's a happy coincidence, or if the phone got the message, is telling me I haven't read it, but isn't displaying it for me to see. All the other messages from her are plainly visible.

Wifi, bluetooth, 3G? And how? Many methods seem to point to communicating through a web server, but I'd rather send them directly from phone to phone if possible.

Android :: How To Get Chat App?

Jun 2, 2010

So for the last week me and a couple others have been looking for a group chat app. By this i mean an app that will allow us to create a group that will stay open whether we are logged in or not and also one that does not require members to be invited, rather one that can be named and then have people search for it. We are not looking for an IM like MSN that allows you to temporarily add your friends to a group chat but instead acts more like a private chat room? Theres an app that we are using just now called Cnected but its really really basic, just that bit too basic, cant even see who is involved in the chat.Basically an app like this but with a list of people in the chat and a pm option. Preferably one that logs the chat even if your not signed in would be good but not essential.Also needs to be free. Ive looked at jabber clients and IRC but the group of people are not computer savvy enough to set them up correctly.I just cant believe that out of all the chat apps there are out there, even the big ones like msn yahoo and AIM, not a single one allows you to create a permanent group thats always open and can be searched for.

HTC Incredible : Handcent - Whenever Send A Message It Says Message Failed - Retry Cancel

May 19, 2010

My problem is this, I downloaded Handcent and really like it, however, I can't send messages from home. I have marginal service here (around -98 avg.) but I do get 3G. Whenever I send a message it says Message Failed - Retry, Cancel? I've even had this problem in places with great coverage for both 3G and cell service. The stock messaging app works just fine. So what I've been doing is receiving messages with Handcent and then sending them using the stock app.

So, does anyone have any ideas of what I can do? Are there any settings that can be changed? Does handcent use 3G to send messages?

I'm now trying Chomp to see if that's any better. And, just an FYI, I'm having trouble with text messages, not MMS. I haven't tried sending any pics or videos yet, I've just been sending SMS.

Android :: Facebook Chat

Sep 28, 2010

Just wondering if anyone else has come across this, my friend rang me the other day and asked why i was always logged in to fb chat 24 hours a day, dont be silly i said im not, he said you are now!!

I was using nimbuzz and have found out that if i have fb chat set to offline when i go in to nimbuzz it turns it on (as it should) but when i log out it keeps me showing as online on the main facebook website!!

The only way i can get it to stop doing this is to log out of nimbuzz and then log in to the main fb site and set chat to offline (a real pain!)

Does anyone use an app that lets you log out and keeps you logged out?

i have also tried palringo and Go!chat and they all do the same!

I dont want people chatting to me and thinking im ignoring them!
