Hi Beta Testers - Please find a link to an early version of the next Snowball build here: http://bit.ly/SnoAPK20

** THIS IS A MAJOR UPDATE ** 

We’ve made some significant design changes based on your feedback and we’d love your help to test it's usability.  

Most importantly, we've moved Snowball from a tab design to a pull down; you now pull down next to your notification tray to see your messages. This is based on usability feedback and testing.

Other changes include:
* Moved to a new Android Lollipop style design
* Added support for French, German, Italian, Korean, Japanese and Spanish
* Various bug fixes and performance improvements

Please share any and all feedback here!

Thanks,
The Snowball Team

Hi Folks - We've released the latest version to the App Store; for those who want to download the APK directly you can find it here: http://bit.ly/SnowAPK18

In addition to support for new messaging apps (Telegram, Skype, Viber, Hike, BBM, Kik, GroupMe) we've added a "Clear all" button under settings.

We haven't opened the app up to new geographies in the play store yet as we're still waiting on translations.  

Thanks for your support; we're listening to feedback as always.

Folks - We have a new APK ready for release and we're sending it to you for first look: http://bit.ly/SnoAPK2

This build includes Android Lollipop fixes, a new lockscreen UX, LG G3 support, and a fix for folks who are having trouble hitting the INSTALL button when installing new APKs.  

After installing you can check that you have version 1.0.3 to ensure you have the latest build.

BTW - We're working hard to add Telegram, Skype, and Viber support for the next release.

Thanks and happy messaging!

DÍA LITÚRGICO: SOLEMNIDAD DEL SAGRADO CORAZÓN DE JESÚS (A)

Texto del Evangelio (Mt 11,25-30): En aquel tiempo, tomando Jesús la palabra, dijo: «Yo te bendigo, Padre, Señor del cielo y de la tierra, porque has ocultado estas cosas a sabios e inteligentes, y se las has revelado a pequeños. Sí, Padre, pues tal ha sido tu beneplácito. Todo me ha sido entregado por mi Padre, y nadie conoce bien al Hijo sino el Padre, ni al Padre le conoce bien nadie sino el Hijo, y aquel a quien el Hijo se lo quiera revelar».

«Venid a mí todos los que estáis fatigados y sobrecargados, y yo os daré descanso. Tomad sobre vosotros mi yugo, y aprended de mí, que soy manso y humilde de corazón; y hallaréis descanso para vuestras almas. Porque mi yugo es suave y mi carga ligera».

Venid a mí todos los que estáis fatigados y sobrecargados, y yo os daré descanso

Hoy, cuando nos encontremos cansados por el quehacer de cada día —porque todos tenemos cargas pesadas y a veces difíciles de soportar— pensemos en estas palabras de Jesús: «Venid a mí todos los que estáis fatigados y sobrecargados, y yo os daré descanso» (Mt 11,28). Reposemos en Él, que es el único que nos puede descansar de todo lo que nos preocupa, y así encontrar la paz y todo el amor que no siempre nos da el mundo.

El descanso auténticamente humano necesita una dosis de “contemplación”. Si elevamos los ojos al cielo y rogamos con el corazón, y somos sencillos, seguro que encontraremos y veremos a Dios, porque allí está («Yo te bendigo, Padre, Señor del cielo»: Mt 11,25). Pero no sólo está allí, encontrémosle también en el “suave yugo” de las pequeñas cosas de cada día: veámoslo en la sonrisa de aquel niño pequeño lleno de inocencia, en la mirada agradecida de aquel enfermo que hemos visitado, en los ojos de aquel pobre que nos pide nuestra ayuda, nuestra bondad…

Reposemos todo nuestro ser, y confiémonos plenamente a Dios que es nuestra única salvación y salvación del mundo. Tal como lo recomendaba Juan Pablo II, para reposar verdaderamente, nos es necesario dirigir «una mirada llena de gozosa complacencia [al trabajo bien hecho]: una mirada “contemplativa”, que ya no aspira a nuevas obras, sino más bien a gozar de la belleza de lo que se ha realizado» en la presencia de Dios. A Él, además, hay que dirigirle una acción de gracias: todo nos viene del Altísimo y, sin Él, nada podríamos hacer.

Precisamente, uno de los grandes peligros actuales es que «el nuestro es un tiempo de continuo movimiento, que frecuentemente desemboca en el activismo, con el fácil riesgo del “hacer por hacer”. Hemos de resistir esta tentación buscando “ser” antes que “hacer”» (Juan Pablo II). Porque, en realidad, como nos dice Jesús, sólo hay una cosa necesaria (cf. Lc 10,42): «Tomad sobre vosotros mi yugo, y aprended de mí (…) y hallaréis descanso para vuestras almas» (Mt 11,29).

Thank you for your support and feedback!
