Messaging

How do I Share a Message?

Press-n-Hold content when it’s centered in bubble. Option to Share message appears. User can share to any or all Contacts, Public Pool, or Private Pool, if it’s the user’s original message.

If you Press-n-Hold another user’s content, you may share from Public Pools only, not from 1-1s or Private pool threads.

Share Window displays all your 1-1 Contacts, Public and Private Pools, so that you may individually choose who to share the message with. Tap on desired Tabs to check the circle of individuals and pools you wish to share with, then Tap, “Done.”

Shared message displays on chosen thread’s bubbles, including your photo, along w/ photo of owner of message. If your sharing your own post, two profile photos of you will appear below the bubble, on lower left and right.

If it’s a shared message, you cannot share it, we only allow one share of content.

If you wish to share a shared message, Tap on user’s profile photo to go to their profile where you will see Public Pools they’ve created. Links take you to the pools to visit and/or join. To seek out private exchanges, use M and P, (Marco/Polo), buttons to send requests and confirmations.

What are attachment icons above and below bubble for?

Sometimes scrolling gets old. We’ve decided to try something new.

We wish to keep scrolling an option, with swipes up and down, but also provide tappable buttons, to tap in the same position, above and below the bubble, to give users a preview of what’s next and option to go back and review. so cruise up or down, same as scrolling, with a Tap, to enter the next content into the main bubble for viewing.

Attachment icons are on the left of text, if text is attached, above and below the bubble in pools, profiles, and 1-1’s. Simply tap the icon to view the next post.

 

How do I upload content?

Tap on message box and keyboard pops up. Displayed under the textbox are Icons for attachments.

Voice Recorded Message, up to 15 seconds, is Red Lips Icon. Music file is a Blue Note. (Only Droid users can upload music. iOS may listen). Photo Icon is a Silver Camera. Video Icon is a Gold Video Camera. Tap on Icon of choice and window to select photo, video, music file, or record your voice message appears.

What’s a Polo?

In Header, on right side when in Public Pools, a, P button appears.

Tap, P, to Polo into the pool and that pool goes into your list of Public Pools, accessible in User’s Pool Slide-over Menu.

Also, If a User has Marco’d you, and you’ve tapped into their Tab from your Marco list, you’re directed to their profile, where a, P, replaces the Contacts button in Header, so that you may complete the friend request, by tapping, P for Polo, becoming Contacts.

What’s a Marco?

M button right side of Header appears when in a User’s profile page to offer User’s option to connect with others for purpose of One-on-One messaging.

Tap M, for Marco, to send a request to connect. A notification awaits them in their Marcos, in their Pool Slide-over Menu.

Once accepted, User appears in your list of Contacts and you in theirs, and a Polo confirmation awaits you in your Polos, in your Pool Slide-over Menu.

If a Polo is returned, you are connections and may message privately, and can invite each other into private pools created.
