    Wait wait wait.....NEW app? So I've bought Swiftkey, Swiftkey Tablet and now Swiftkey Flow? (Probably Swiftkey Flow Tablet as well).

    Yes, as I said the argument kind of makes sense on the Nexus 7 as Google is pushing their cloud services, but I seriously don't think they're there yet - and I dare say most would agree. Google Music isn't even out here yet =\

    Indeed, it harks way back to the "good ol' days" when smartphones came with 64Mb of internal storage and 64Mb of RAM.

    Seriously, 8Gb? What's the point? The Nexus 7 I can almost understand but they've discontinued that. Phones have come with 8Gb of storage for half a decade now, why on earth aren't we expanding further?

    One critical piece of information is missing: The price.

    If this was a £400 or £500 device like the Galaxy Nexus, then yeah I can see the issue. However, if it's £150? That changes things.

    Am I the only one that prefers to use Bluetooth headphones so it's a non-issue?

    I'm guessing it's impossible to track the impressions? Even so, if there's an impression based android ad service, that could work as well. Didn't Angry Birds show video clips and such within the app? That has to be impression based and I wouldn't mind watching a clip or looking at an ad every now and then for some free "credits" or whatever. Then again, it's starting to sound a lot more complicated than perhaps what Koush was planning, so I'm not sure how much effort it's really worth.

    Well I was actually referring to ads within the emails themselves, not the program.

    Furthermore, I know it's a bit more work, but if you use impression-based ads and have the server supply "credits" automatically when an impression is detected (to stop people hiding the ads), then you'd have quite a little earner on your hands. And, of course, offer the subscription for those that don't want ads. Pretty win-win.

    The server costs don't sound particularly high, would they have to make a lot of money? I think it'd be worth trialing for the beta.

    Sorry, I am not an android developer, but I believe the official gmail app was built with all the same APIs as any other Android app, so is there no way to build that functionality in?
    If you have to set up a subscription of sorts, it's not going to be 1-click any more =P



    Sorry, even if it cost 30c a year, I'd be reluctant to pay. I'd rather just pay up front for the app and have it, but I'm a bit funny like that. I do quite like the idea of it being ad supported though, the emails at the moment are pretty blank, so why not throw some ads in there?

    Perhaps I'm being a bit naive, but I don't see why this app couldn't use your existing gmail account to work? From what I can tell, the process works like this -

    You receive an SMS, so the app contacts the server and the server sends you an email in the format of
    [email protected], i.e. the phone number @domain.com

    To reply, you just reply to the message. The server must see who the reply came from and inform the app to dispatch an SMS to the number at the beginning.


    So, theoretically, I don't see why your existing gmail couldn't do this, thanks to the way that gmail handles the "+" character. Let's say my email is [email protected] (it isn't, btw), why can't an email be dispatched to [email protected]? Replies would work in exactly the same way, all the app has to do is check your gmail for emails from yourself with a number in the address. If the address is the hard part, it could potentially even do it by subject.

    Like I said, perhaps I'm just naive as to what's possible, but in my mind I don't see why this wouldn't work.

    I love the app and find it incredibly useful, but I don't think I could pay a subscription for it.

    The "facebook" application is the "facebook" bit and the "facebook for HTC Sense" goes into friend stream, as far as I'm aware. I don't know if it's related, but for a while now, Handcent hasn't been grabbing people's images from facebook like it used to.

    Possible bug?

    I only just noticed this so I don't know how long I've had it, but I went into accounts & Sync and noticed that my facebook account wasn't listed (there was Facebook for HTC sense, but not plain ol' Facebook). I have the Facebook application installed via the Kitchen.
    Anyway, when I try to add the account, it lists Facebook (along with google, twitter, etc.) but when I select it, nothing happens.

    So far the only issues I'm having are the Sense homescreen crashing/restarting and the Wireless randomly dropping out/disconnecting. The only way to get wireless back is to turn it off and back on again.

    Does anyone's HTC Sense keep crashing? I'm not sure if it's crashing, but if I am using an app or unlock the phone, I sometimes get the white background with the HTC logo and the homescreen has to load up again. It only takes a few seconds, but it still gets a bit annoying.
