We use Grasshopper for our department at my work, and it works well for our needs. The app, on the other hand, is rough. Something that we need to do fairly frequently while on the road is manage our forwarding settings, and this rarely works on the app. When checking/unchecking a number, it spins for a second and then just reverts to whatever the setting was before. Looks like the last update was back in April. Is this something that is actively being worked on/

Absolutely. It's happened on several different phones that I've tried, so I just assumed it was a known issue. I'll use the app to submit the feedback. Thanks for the quick response!

Is it possible to have the app allow incoming calls be added to my phone's contact list? I need to be able to add names and save phone numbers to my contact list so i can call people back.

Hi Steven, this comment got lost in my notifications. Right now that's not possible directly through the app but it is coming.

Samsung Note 3 10.1 2014 Tablet is Not Supported (APP STORE) When will the App be functional?

Since the app is primarily built to allow calling using the android dialer, it may not work on tablets.

Hey Grasshopper Folks,

It's been a awhile since we've had an update on the Android app...What's going on with it?  Are any of the suggestions that have been submitted going to be added anytime soon?

Please update us!  Thanks

Hi Tristan. We've been busy with some other major projects the past several weeks, but we're back on mobile now, so things should start to pick up again. Thanks for your patience.

I apologize if this has been asked.

In the History, What's the difference between Red and Black calls?

Thanks

Feature request: Ability to add a note to voicemail.  GV has this ability online and I found it to be a great way to help me remember if the call was returned and what was discussed .

Can we change the name that is displayed on the Called Id?  When we make outbound calls, the name is shown as United States.

The latest version of Grasshopper Beta rolls out tonight with two changes:

1. Now you can add, edit, delete and re-order call forwarding numbers for any extension that you have access to
2 . Tidying up the settings page 

As always, send your feedback along here on the community site or to mobile@grasshopper.com

I clicked the link via the email notification and pushed the install via the browser on my tablet. However, trying that on the Note II didn't work. I say we blame Samsung. Nexus 5 here I come. :-)

Is it possible to display our business name with our phone number when we make outgoing calls using the app OR using the Call Out Feature.  If not, I do not see a use for these features since the name shown on the Caller ID is the same name that shows up when solicitors and bill collectors use when they call, "Toll Free Caller".  I have many clients ignore the call since it they don't recognize the number, and the name is not specific.  I'm sure the many talented developers can create a solution to this problem.

Hi Shaun. Toll free hasn't caught up with local numbers in having caller ID capability. Back when this was all handled by a Bell company they never anticipated toll free as anything other than inbound. We'll be sure to offer this capability if it ever becomes available.

My company would like to Brand the App (change Icon etc) To match our corp environment. Is this possible, or, if it will be?

We don't have any current plans for custom branding.

Sorry to be a pain, guys, but my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 just got it's new Android OS update last night (KitKat) and now the Grasshopper App doesn't work correctly.

I did uninstall it and re-install it, but rather than dial the number for me, it simply acts as if I dialed into the 888 number to make a call and I now have to manually enter the phone number I am trying to call.

Help!  ;-)

I'm having trouble adding contacts to the grasshopper app. My boss and I want to share the same contacts. What's the best way of doing so?

Hi, Darren, Yes that would be useful to have a contacts list that you can access through grasshopper app. Even better- being able to share contacts in the app with co-workers.

Just joined Grasshopper for a small business! I love it, very easy to collaborate with staff. I have a question- on the app I made changes to be notified if there's a missed call or voicemail.  Is there a notification to turn on for faxes that come in?

We just published the latest version of our app (from Nov 1) to the Play store to make it available to an even larger group. Hopefully this will also make it less likely that the link will ever return a 404 error.

I want to thank each member of the community for their feedback and contributions to making this app better with each release. The Grasshopper Beta Google+ community will continue to be a place where announcements will be made and discussions can be had.

Transferring a call is still possible, as always, by pressing ##, then 2 when you're on a call.

Ever since the update, my dialer won't work on my Galaxy Note 2. I input the number and hit the dial button and get the small black notification window that says dialing with the number but it never switches to the dialer screen. Any suggestions?

I sent the email. I uninstalled but none of the download links work. Not even the QR code. What's the new procedure to download the app?
