Hey there.

A few small things, aside from which this is a really, really good app design.

On the app side of things:
Firstly, since this is a chat aimed at DA users (unless I got that wrong?) I'd suggest changing the colour scheme to match deviantART itself to make users feel more at home :)

Additionally, a few Holo guidelines you've missed out on:

- the Send button (use the new send image?)
- a menu overflow button, or a slide out drawer. (I'm assuming you have a menu to login or manage account settings for which you would need one of these two features.)


Aside from that, this is a very well designed app. There are a few aesthetic additions I would personally make like user images, but they're not necessary :)

My apologies if we're not to go so much off topic from the design side of things :)
What do you think?

Posting here cause can't on the App Store. I'm using the Lite Version and I can't find all the chatrooms for the Groups I'm in, and they have established chatrooms on their homepage. Is there a reason why it's not showing up in the App?

The room list only shows rooms with at least 2 people in the room.  You can join the room by typing in the full room name in the search box and pressing ok/the search button.

Is there going to be an update that fixes that? I searched the chatrooms name but came up with nothing m

If the room does not have 2 or more people in it, the room will not show up when you are searching.  You can press the ok/search button to join what ever room you have in the text box or you can type /join ROOMNAME in any chatroom.  Replace ROOMNAME with what ever the room is named.

Hi, I'm accessing this app through a tablet and am having difficulties locating my autojoin/saved chat list. Would you be able to help me find it? Thanks!

:iconbaronbeandip:
baronbeandip Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
There is not a way to view the list of autojoined rooms at the moment.  To make a new list of rooms join/part the rooms you want or don't want. Press save when the rooms you want are joined.

I would love to be able to use this app! There's only one problem: the app is incompatible with my device. My device now is an HTC One. However, the Playstore says that dAmnmessenger will not work on it and won't let me download the app. What could possibly make it incompatible with my phone? What could be wrong?

I have checked the compatible device list for Google Play.  It shows that the HTC One is, in fact, supported.  I am unsure as to why Google Play is not allowing you to install the app.

I definitely prefer this layout over the layout that dAmn is currently using. One thing I would like even more though is if it would be possible to save chat conversations.

I used to use dAmn to RP but had to use other sites since dAmn wouldn't let me save anything. But even if that's not fixed yet, this is a major improvement on the site's chatroom! I hope dA considers adding this to the next site update.

And the ICS rom will break my video camera according to the install notes, so I am just waiting to buy an ICS device. I will probably replace the screenshots with emulator screenshots later today.
