Unfortunately v2.2 introduced a bug, which causes the review screen to be displayed every time the app is launched. We greatly apologize for the inconvenience. This bug managed to slip through our testing due to the following: the specific screen does not appear until after a few weeks since the app has been installed. Every re-installation resets this timer, thus we never had the opportunity to see this in our testing, were re-installs are often involved.
MetroTalk v2.3 is currently available from the Marketplace for fixing this issue. Early next week, v2.3 will also be available for MetroTalk Free, for addressing the same problem. In the meantime, you can follow these instructions for permanently dismissing the screen, without needing to wait for an update.
- Enter the app, wait for the review screen to appear, and dismiss it.
- From the application bar, enter “Settings” and then “General”.
- Hit the back button on your device, all the way until exiting the app.
The problem should now be resolved. Once again, we apologize about this issue. We will do our best to ensure, that no similar problems will come up in the future.
We’ve had a small outage today with our push notifications server, which lasted for a few hours. Everything should be back up and running now. Please let us know if you have any problems. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
MetroTalk 2.0 is now available for download here. This is a major update, that brings a large number of new features and performance improvements. An unread conversation counter is now available for the live tile, along with many other changes; please visit the Changelog page for the full list.
Please note that this version, also brings a complete overhaul of how settings are stored on the device. Thus it is highly recommended that you first remove any 1.x version you currently have, before installing this new release.
MetroTalk v1.5 has been approved and will appear in the Marketplace later today. This release addresses the following issues:
- Fixed a bug where empty folders would repeatedly display the “No more data” message.
- Fixed a bug where placing calls would sometimes fail.
There also seems to be a problem with getting MetroTalk Free approved by Microsoft; it is currently stuck at v1.3. If you are interested in using the ad-supported version, please download the trial version of MetroTalk instead. This is identical with MetroTalk Free (fully functional; includes ads), but allows you to use the latest version until this issue is resolved.
A new version is out, with only a few but important updates; you can find the changelog below. As always, you can download MetroTalk from the Marketplace here. Stay tuned for more updates and exciting new features in the upcoming weeks!
- Fixed a bug where message sending would fail repeatedly.
- Complete overhaul of the settings page.
- Added option for enabling auto-correct for when typing a new message.
- Added option for automatically refreshing folders on start.
- Multiple minor UI fixes.
In the Settings page of MetroTalk, there is an option named “quick reply”. When this is enabled (on by default), you can click on newly received toast notifications and instantly view and reply to them. No communication with the server is needed, or loading the full application. This is the fastest way to manage newly received messages and the best way to save time in day-to-day use! If the notification is missed, then the live tile is updated instead. Any new information can then be viewed the next time you launch MetroTalk.
MetroTalk 1.3 is now in the Marketplace and will be available to all devices within the next 24 hours. This release (along with v1.2) fixes a number of issues that were identified over the past 2 weeks. Options have also been added in the Settings page, which allow customization of the interface. For more information, please visit the Changelog page. You can grab the latest version here.
MetroTalk Free 1.3 is also available. This release, is identical to the trial version of MetroTalk, and is ad-supported. You can download it from the Marketplace here.
