Mini release & the return of some old friends
The good news is that it is back for a large number of customers - the bad news is that it's not there for everyone. You'll see it if your phone supports it and not at all if not. If you have a Nokia or a relatively new Sony Ericsson or Samsung you are in good shape as well as a number of other devices. We'll work on making it more extensive in future (though market development will help us in this as well).
The really good news is that this share via SMS functionality used to be available in the UK but now works globally! Fantastic!
In with this mini-release is a return to the weather feed displaying three pictures which we hope satisfies all of those weather freaks out there who were suddenly disturbed by an apparent lack of weather two days in the future - we had lots of feedback on this so we hoped everyone is now less alarmed.
Also in the release are some improvements to the search functionality to allow more recent stories to bubble to the top more freely. This makes a noticeable difference for searching for Sports results or match summaries for example. There are some other improvements coming through which will also just help the general effectiveness of the service for you.
Other changes include removal of the Mowser link :-(, inclusion of the age of a particular story, an upgrade to the Mippin Today email and changing of some terms like Mipplets to readily known terms e.g. Widgets. There is a host more but the list is long and in many cases there to improve how the service works for you rather than adding new features that you can see (that bit is a bit boring so we'll skip it if you don't mind).
More releases soon and from Monday we're trialling some very, very exciting new functionality. A fun but incredibly useful feature. If you are in the London area and want to guinea pig this for 30 minutes let us know - you will be more than welcome.
