Oh god, yet another ill-conceived, barely functioning app.

Suppose, keeps the developers in a job since the main site is functioning at 100% and is totally error free...

Oh, wait.

What is it in particular about the app that you don't like or doesn't function properly?

Personally I still want the old UI back of which I and I'm sure many others are the same.

The future? They have done with Android and iPhone.

Statistically, they should be supporting Blackberry 1st.
WP7 will be 2nd soon, watch out apple fanbois.
Let's hear it for the bada community?

Wikipedia figures show it beating Microsoft despite being the newer of the two.

It is stronger in Europe, and especially, France. I think it is absent from America.
dosnt work keeps closing on my phone

in b4 it doesn't work.



Downloaded the Android version, ran it, & declined the kind offer to track my location by GPS.

Was dropped into "London" (the Docklands), I moved around for a couple of seconds & stopped at Liverpool Street station.

I looked at the single Thorntons deal.
I then moved East to find the nearest Tesco.
Viewed all the deals there.
I then click the [Stores] button to view all local supermarkets.
I didn't scroll or click any items.

Accidentally I then dropped back to my Android home screen.
I restarted the application & it is just showing me the "Loading..." message (& the "two flames" logo).

The [Stores] [Saved] [Submit] [Feedback] buttons are at the bottom of the screen.

I will leave it in this state (for some time, within reason) in case you would like me to do or report on anything else.

BFN,

PS. This is on *a* Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, Android Version 4.0.2.A.0.32.

lol looks like my suggestion from this thread was implented, admin does listen after all,

hotukdeals.com/fee…377

you know the more I think about this location thing the more I think it … you know the more I think about this location thing the more I think it wouldn't work, for example somebody posts that they found a ps3 for £100 instore at asda. now its a nationwide promotion but because they put the location down as croydon me up here in glasgow wouldn't spot the deal if I searched for glasgow deals, similarly if I searched for deals in govan would glasgow deals appear. while in theory its a good idea I can't see it working in practice on hukds. I suppose you could always rip off the app that matt from heroes made and get actual retaliers etc to sign up and offer deals etc that way, here's his app, http://getyowza.com/

The application has finally decided to stop "Loading...".

I am now back at the list of stores around the location I stopped at (South Quay Plaza, London).
Dropped back to my home screen again (on purpose this time).

I clicked the application again to open it.

The "Loading...". has now been on-screen for 2 minutes.

It is not really that useful if it takes this long to start-up.

(I have not been prompted again to ask if I wish to use GPS to track my location).
Let me translate it to bada.
Still "Loading..."
Still "Loading..."

(I know I'm in London, & nobody talks to each other here, but after this length of time I may as well ask somebody if they know where the nearest supermarket is)

Sorry, Tipping Canoe, this Android application needs testing before the next release.

PS. Anybody had trouble with the iPhone variant?

Cheers all for the feedback. I will obviously make sure it is reviewed!
Great idea thanks, I always use tesco free wi-fi when in store to check hukd on my phone and see what deals have been posted.
Thanks for all the feedback everyone! For anyone having issues with the app loading or crashing can you please post a message with your phone type as well as operating system version just as fanpages did at the end of his comment:

"PS. This is on an Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, Android Version 4.0.2.A.0.32."

Another way to provide feedback is to use the feedback tab that is built into the app which will send us all of the phone related information we need with your comment automatically. Of course this isn't an option if the app wont open for you so then this thread would be the best place to post and comments.

Any other information about the error would also be of help such as, "I was scrolling when viewing the map and then the app closed".

Upgrading to Version 1.01 (9 April 2012) has not resolved my issue.

[EDIT]: Clearing the existing data & then re-trying did! Thanks. [/EDIT]

Basket Buddy sounds like some sort of gay euphemism. Is that intentional?
