  1. A direct dial option and phone integration

    I dont always want to call a saved contact, would be nice to see a dial pad to call one offs. Not sure if its feasable but would love to see the app take over the native phone and messaging apps, similar to a jailbroken iphone with gvoice apps from cydia.

    Works really well, thanks for creating it!

    • improve style of play and stop buttons

      Then plain, outline-style Play and Stop buttons make me sad. :-) Please consider polishing this part of the UI as you have so many other aspects. Solid-style buttons would be nice. Play and Stop graphic-icon buttons would be nicer!

      • Add option to remove in-app popup notifications

        The animated dots are adequate notification that background updates are in progress. I don't like when the "No more data to retrieve" pops up over the message list I'm trying to read. Would like to be able to turn this off without also disabling toast notifications outside the app.

        • Fix Live Tile

          For some reason, even though I have background tasks, live tile preview, and live tile sync for MetroTalk enabled, I am not seeing a number pop up next to the live tile when I receive a new text (though I am getting push notifications).

            If you are already successfully receiving push notifications, then technically it is certain that the live tile counter should also work. My guess is that the problem is that you don’t have the main app tile pinned to your start screen. You can check this by doing a long-tap on MetroTalk in the app list, and selecting “pin to start”. Unfortunately, secondary tiles such as folder tiles currently do not get updated.

          • Select multiple items

            Is there a way to do a multi-select to delete more than one item at a time? This will very helpful and more efficient.

              In the folder screen, you can tap the second icon from the left in the application bar at the bottom, and enable checkboxes that allow you to select multiple conversations. After choosing multiple items, clicking the application bar again will allow you to select actions that can be performed in bulk. This is similar to the behavior of the native email client on WP.

              Please let me know if you have problems with this.

                  • Problems with pinned call/text

                    Not sure if this is a problem with the windows phone 8 version, but I just purchased the app and a Lumia 920. When I navigate to call/text, select a contact, and then pin it to the start menu.. it never seems to work properly. I get the splash screen saying 'loading' and it goes directly to the folders instead of the contact. Anyone else have this problem?

                      Secondary tiles are indeed broken on WP8; I apologize for that! The good news is that they are working perfectly in the version that we are currently beta testing. I hope that this version will be released by the end of next week.

                      I apologize again for the inconvenience.

                    • improving contact search

                      is there a way you can improve the contact search, I have tons of people that start with the same name or close to it, so when I start to type their name if its not exact it will not find any results. I story things like Family – Family Name – Friend. So the category family will be the first section, the second section is my family members name and the third section is the person I know thru that family member. So an example would be Family – Mike – Eric which is my family member names mike…

                      • scroll down to refresh, selecting features, new options layout

                        Like Facebook app on iPhone, there's is an ability to scroll down on a page and have it refresh. If it is possible it would be a cool feature, also for selecting as of right now you have go click the little circle to select, it would be cool to be able to select without that button (like SkyDrive and the native email application) that way you can get rid of the select button on the bottom
                        Also instead of circles on the bottom for some specific options, I think it would look nice if they were bigger squares instead,…

                          Scroll down to refresh is coming next week. The select button at the bottom, as well as the round buttons, make the UI consistent with the rest of the Metro interface. Implementing select in a similar way to the native client interface will be included in a future update.

                        • Change the pinned call/text tile to look more like a phone

                          Trying to move over from GoVoice because the app is constantly buggy and the developer isn't very receptive to user requests. But one thing that I liked about his app, when you pinned the dialer to the start screen, it looks much more like a phone, rather than using the same icon as the regular pinned app. That way its easily distinguishable for myself and anyone that ever happens to pick up my phone for me and need to make a call at my request

                            I don't know if you can do this or not, but I have tried and failed to text a number that is not in my address book. Even if you type the numbers I am unable to send a text message to a typed number that is not in my contacts

                              You should be able to type any number in the recipient textbox, in the Call/Text page, and hit either “enter” on the text keyboard or “;” on the numeric keyboard, to have that number added to the recipient list. You should then be able to send/call that number, as intended. The fact that the send button is disabled otherwise, is a bug. This will be fixed in the next update; apologies for the inconvenience!

                              If you have further problems, please feel free to email us at the address listed in the About page of the application.

                              Thanks for trying MetroTalk :)

                                  This feature will arrive as you described (previewing the most recently received message on the back tile), in the next update. It will be enabled by default when enabling push notifications, but users will be given the option to disable this specific functionality.

                                  • Make the top navigation menu more consistent with metro UI with side scrolling rather than in different frames

                                    basically the top menu at this moment is somewhat not consistent with the overall windows metro UI. Granted the text and icons are great but the size, usability is somewhat discontinuous. its more intuitive to swipe the entire screen right rather than have to only swipe the top frame..

                                    • Add profile pic to favorites

                                      I really like the idea of favorites introduced in 2.0, but the rectangle tiles somehow bother me. I'd rather have something similar to the WP contact list, or square tiles with a profile picture.

                                        I'd love to this this as an option: instead of just an icon on the left side of a message, a thumbnail of the sender's profile picture.

                                        • Allow dialing a specific contact directly from the start screen

                                          Currently, the fastest way to call a number is by pinning the Call/Text page, with a specific contact already selected as the recipient. Thus it takes one tap to click the corresponding tile from the start screen, and another tap to dial the number. Enabling the "pin to start" functionality for the dialer page, could reduce this to a single tap.
