A long time coming release of the Android app

We are glad to inform that new release of our Bopup Messenger for Android platform has been released. The latest version 1.0.7 introduces many additions and improvements, it is much useful and better than all prior versions of the IM client because settings interface is provided too.

What's new:

Added localization to Spanish language
Now the app supports Spanish if the same localization is set on the Android device.

Added option to automatically launch the app on system startup
The main issue from app's first release was the absence of an option to start it automatically. Version 1.0.7 added Settings page and the option to launch app on a device startup is also provided.

Added option to automatically show incoming message (conversation) on it's reception
The settings page in the app also added option to automatically show new message within a conversation once it is received. If this option is checked then the messenger would select a message' sender in Contact List and display a conversation. If another chat conversation is opened then it will be switched to a new one.

Added sound alert and vibrate notification on a receipt of messages
Another important options belong also to receipt of incoming messages. Prior versions of the messenger app had no any alerts on this. Version 1.0.7 added vibrate alert and ringtone sound that can be turned through the options.

Bopup Messenger for Android also fixes many little bugs and added another minor improvements. We highly recommend to update existing applications running on Android platform. New version is also available on Google Market at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.blabs.bopup.messenger

IM clients updates are available

New versions both of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients have been released. They fix important and annoying issues and also come with other little improvements.

Option "Reply to group" is enabled by default on an initial installation
We noticed that the option to reply to a messaging group instead of a message's sender is very important and useful. Using the option it is possible to organize a group chat between all assigned users to the group. But this settings was not enabled by default so many users asked us how to have a group conversation because reply option always sent a message to a sender account not to the group. Now Bopup Messenger enables by default on a first ("clear") installation on a computer.

Fixed issue with scrollbar in a conversation dialog when no messages are shown
Another annoying issue was an issue with a scrollbar in a conversation text box that moved up all previous sent and received messages. This could appear when a chat window was automatically opened on an incoming message.

Fixed error on messenger startup when history contains favorite messages
Due to unknown reason the messengers could bring an error on startup when favorite messages existed in the history. We rebuilt the Message History module to solve this error.

Improved pop up of the main window on reception of new messages
We missed function that allows to pop up the main window of the IM client when it is minimized to Task bar area on a receipt of  new message. This functionality is too important on Bopup Observer client.
