It baffles me why Geiger counters are so popular these days as a hobbyist project.
I know it's a weird pet peeve for me to have, but seriously. Who besides geologists and residents of the Ukraine even need them?
Certainly not enough to justify all these: http://hackaday.com/tag/geiger-counter/

Now I kind of want a geiger counter.

I've started to notice chats I've hidden occasionally pop back up and become visible again. Can't tell if this happens with all hidden chats at once, or one at a time. Seems random.

Also: perhaps this is user error, but I recently tried to leave a group and left a different group instead.
It could be related to the problem of groups re-ordering themselves in the main list in real-time even when you're selecting groups to mute/unmute or hide/unhide.

Hmph. Have you logged out or cleared data recently? Doing either of those will cause your hidden chats to be reset and become visible.

Call it weird, but I really enjoy certain "bugs" in the UI. Please do not fix the following feature:
If you change your nickname to/from a single space character (ascii 0x20), there is no notification on the feed.

I'll pull little pranks such as changing my name from Chris to (single space) to George Takei, say "Oh myyy!" then change it back to _(single space)_ then Chris again.
Nobody can figure out what I did, and it's great! :professor_chaos:

Relatively minor bug, but worth mentioning.
Context: Long-pressing a group highlights it, and gives the option to mute/unmute or hide.

Here's the issue:
When I've selected "GroupA" which is #1 on the list, if a new message is received in "GroupB", GroupB is moved to the top of the list.
At that point, GroupB is now selected instead of GroupA. This can lead to muting or hiding the wrong chat, and it isn't always noticeable when it happens.

The list of casualties keeps rising…

Have a heart, +NIA Ops! There's got to be somebody hooked into the system able pull the right strings.

Or, at least grant them a single-use passcode to restore their badges and/or AP in a new account?
Frivolous as it may seem, the badges honor the commitment and effort a player puts into Ingress. They symbolic of their value as players and the esteem of the community.
Turning a blind eye sends a very negative message.
 
Hi. I need to change my email from my Ingress. In 1 month, my email service provider will cease to exist. How can I change it?

And Niantic? Unwilling to work on a fix for this. I guess making the portal pictures spin, thus adding an extra step every time you want to use a portal key, is the type of priority they want to focus on. Stay tuned for more time wasting updates...

When I leave a group, someone who I have blocked is able to re-add me.
That's another weird quirk. Adding back someone who has left a group is possible if you
1) add them to the group.
2) remove them from the group
3) add them again.

This probably isn't an issue specific to the Android app.

That's right. Trying to add someone who left creates no notification and they aren't truly re-added.
At that point, though, they can be removed by another member.

It's actually a useful bug to exploit in order to prevent a member who is unwelcome from getting back in.

This could be related to the performance issues mentioned by others, but here it is anyway:
My keyboard input has intermittent issues on my device. "Show key presses" is turned on, and as I use swipe input, sometimes discontinuities appear in what should be a smooth sliding gesture. Or random erratic false touch events while swiping.
It only happens when using the GroupMe app. Perhaps this is an issue specific to my device, but the fact that other apps don't have this problem indicates that something about GroupMe is to blame - even if it's not directly the cause.

Using the stock android keyboard, LG G2 VS980, android 4.4.2, groupme build 531017

That's a little comforting to hear... but I'm still not sure why the digitizer would only have problems when using the GroupMe app. If it truly was an issue with the digitizer, you'd think it would affect all apps.

Here's an odd quirk that started showing up recently.
As an example: I have a group that reports 72 unread messages (there were actually only 14 unread messages, but that is another issue entirely). I flick up the list to scroll up a little bit, looking for messages I've already seen.
Normally I would expect a few to load, then scroll up again to load more. Instead, it immediately loaded over a hundred old messages at once. Sometimes going back several days.

As it loads all these messages, the scroll bar skips around erratically and won't hold still until it decides it's done loading messages.
(Part of the problem may be the large number of images in some of my chats.)

It's 100% repeatable so far - every single group. Clearing the cache doesn't seem to affect things.
