Hello awesome people!
I am Marcus one of the Android Engineers, and we are starting back on using this community more for future updates and tests :) Woho!!!

The next version you find in the beta channel (https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.buffer.android) will include something we have been working on for some time. The Multiple Image upload :) As this is quite the change to our Composer, please be aware that there are still some edge-cases where you find bugs behind the corner :D
 
We needed to rework a lot of moving parts, so I am totally happy to receive whatever feedback you have about the Image upload and the Composer in general.

In the next few days/ or week the following things will be added:
- Long Touch to Preview Image
- More checks around Image attachments from URL
- multiple Image selection in the Photo Chooser

So stay tuned, I try to roll out a version at least each week to get things rolling :)
Either post here or get back to me via marcus@buffer.com!

Cheers and thank you so much for helping us on this one!!!

Bufferapp closes applications when sharing on OnePlus Two running Oxygen OS. Web Browser, YouTube for exemple simply desappear when sharing with bufferapp...

How can we share to fb with selected (ie quoted) text? I have two cases, neither of which works:

1) Copy text manually, then share using share button. Unfortunately, that overwrites the copied text on clipboard with the title/url.

2) Select text and use share button. That adds the text to the buffer post but leaves out the fb link.

Thanks!

Hi John, wow I'm so sorry for missing this post! Entirely my bad there!

We went through some growing pains with the new FB pre-fill flow, but there is an option now in the app's settings to prevent the app from copying the content to the clipboard, so you should be able to paste your own content now!

Please do let me know if there's anything else I can help with :)

What would be amazing for buffer is if it could pick up the Open Graph image from a shared post and then push that on the Twitter channel as an attached image. Right now we often must go grab the image manually and added to a Twitter share

Great points Scott! FYI, the opengraph images will be selected by default in the next version. There is a small API issue preventing me from automatically adding a photo AND a link, so this won't be available quite as soon (today), but will be available in a near-future update. Thanks again +Scott Clark!

Hey Buffer Android testers!

We've had an issue in the last production update, 4.7.2, where sharing links to Facebook profiles would result in a blank composer (e.g., Chrome > Share > Add to Buffer flow).

This has been fixed up in version 4.8 and post to the beta channel, would totally love to hear if you notice any issues around sharing to Facebook!

Link previews are also new and improved in the queue.

You rock :)

Best,
Tom

Hey all! 4.8.1 is in beta, and fixes some issues with resetting/losing custom content when switching profiles during a share. This one is going public this afternoon!

Hello beautiful people!

I have an exciting update for you: Version 4.6.1 is now available on the Beta channel, and includes among several lovely bug fixes, the ability to create, edit and post drafts!

As an extra bonus, it also includes a home screen widget called "Quick Compose" - I hope you enjoy!

If you have a chance to check it out, I would love to hear about your experience with it :)

Hey guys,
I uncovered this bug when trying to edit a post I just added to my Buffer. The text and link disappears. I tried typing anyway and it posted at the end. Still didn't show up while I was typing. Only after.

Hey Team-Amazing-Buffer-Beta-Testers! 

Android 4.0 is currently in beta for you to check out! If you're interested, please keep a keen eye out in the composer area, this is where most of the changes were made.

I still have a couple known issues I'm going to fix: when editing a post on a tablet, the Buffer button should say "Save" and there's a touch of weirdness around how images are shown in the composer. 

If you have any questions or comment, please get in touch!

Thanks so much team!
Tom

Hi All.  I'm still having an issue when sharing to buffer from other apps on android.  About 75% of the time, the composer window will come up blank, without passing the shared link.

The only option is to back all the way out and share again. The links is almost always included on the 2nd try.

I've turned default profiles on/off in the settings, but that doesn't seem to make any difference.  Anyone else?

Hey Team Buffer!

As many of you know, we've made the decision to remove suggestions from Buffer (you can read more about that here: https://open.bufferapp.com/retiring-suggestions/). 

In light of this, we're experimenting with other content discovery avenues. The first of these is a Twitter search built into our very own Android app! 

This is available on the beta channel now, would love to get your feedback!

We'll be rolling this out to the public slowly over the next week or so :)

Best,
Tom

Hi, I joined this community in the hope my Android application will work better because since the last update when I share something on the web the sharing window is empty of any link or text

+Ricky Cadden This is a great point! The beta versions will definitely have a couple rough edges, giving those builds their proud beta status!

This bug however is in the production version of the app, I think that's how +Patrick EMIN stumbled across it :) Looking forward to getting that fix out ASAP!

Best,
Tom

Awesome +John Meese, exactly the kind of insights I'm looking for! We find that about half of all posts are shares from Twitter on Android, was trying to think through how we might make this more useful for users :)

Why I see different Analytics ?

+Fernando M., I think +João Gomes is on the right track. If one of those items is from a personal Facebook profile, and the other from a Facebook group, they will show you different analytics (Facebook gives us different analytics on those types of accounts).

Planning on changing the left sliding menu to one like the new google play that goes all the way to the top of the screen +Tom Redman ?
