Want to use this on my HTC Desire. I log in and it loads my account, I hit "Done" and it all. Goes away and when I re-open it asked me to login again and does this over and over. What can I do to fix this?
Trying out hootsuite...some new features from my previous app twitbird pro and two others...can you possibly adapt these features...1. Tweet longer 2. Delete a tweet 3. Quote a tweet. Am i asking too much for a free app? Just asking for the possibility...overall i like hootsuite...but keeping the other apps for the other features for now...thanks for making it free..
We enjoy hearing your ideas and will continue to add features for free and pro accounts. We have a feature request channel at: http://feedback.hootsuite.com - this forum others to offer comments and vote for your ideas. Plus we can let you know when your ideas are implemented.
Hmmm, good question. If you need to reset data, just re-run the Set-up wizard from the app. Since the mobile apps are designed for single users, there isn't a use case for logging out beyond resetting data. Let us know what you have in mind.
You paid and got the use of the app from that date. It's just like when Tweetie became Twitter. You paid because you saw value. The iPod I bought 3 years ago isn't worth much now but I cant go and ask for a refund cos it's valueless now.
I suppose you're right regarding the early use. However somehow it still feels wrong and makes me wonder if companies do this sort of thing where they start with paid software then make it free if we as users will continue to trust and support the company. Lets say for example the upcoming hootsuite for iPad.. i was waiting for it to come out but now I'm thinking that if its a paid application, I might hold off and not buy it since it might just go free soon after. And if it doesn't go free, then it won't be a huge loss since there are other already free options such as twitter as you mentioned.
Not to say I don't appreciate the software, after all, that's why I paid for it.
