The Sankaku App is now at version 1.9, finally allowing messaging and avatar selection from the app proper.
The changes delivered by 1.9:
Messaging: Just as on the site, users can now mail one another and read their inboxes from the app, via the inbox option provided in the main menu. Push notifications will follow at a later date.
Avatars: Users can now set their avatar from the app, using the “more” (“…”) menu item in posts.
Bug fixes: Further crash bugs have been relentlessly exterminated.
Questions, quandaries, qualms and quibbles are all welcomed via email or comments.
