So, I am working on a new Android app and I would love some input on it.

The basic idea is that you can easily "chat" with other random users. I find this very hard to explain without showing so I will just run through the process here. You launch the app then you can write something in a text box and "shout it". The message gets uploaded and then you download a message that someone else has shouted out. You can then either download another message or reply to the message you have, effectively initiating a conversation with that person.


All comments and feedback appreciated, preferably on the Connect-UTB forums but I will check here as well

UPDATE: The app is now out on the Market.. feel free to give it a go!

Glad you think so! It will be on the Market soon enough I think, depending on what feedback I get from this limited beta test.

Add different colors for each user and make it like a live update not to press the Grab new shout then it updates Other then that the UI is Good.

Thanks for the ideas. I will make it grab a new shout when you post one (i think, maybe make it a setting).

Not sure what you're thinking when it comes to the colours though? Give each user a unique colour? As in their name? Something like:

Alright, I will give it some though.

I am not sure how to implement the live updates though. Been thinking about it for a while and havent decided on the best way to do this yet, so any suggestions would be welcome!
