  1. prevent Metro Talk from closing the app when the back button is pressed.

    When clicking going through messages and pressing the back button, it becomes inconvenient restarting Metro Talk from the WP8 home screen when the back button is pushed too many times.

    Most people would want their Metro Talk open all of the time working in the background for easy access to messages and contacts whenever they click the Live Tile.

    To close Metro Talk, it should be a separate option in settings or elsewhere.

    • Update main app when notification is recieved

      It doesn't make sense that the app tells me I have 1 new message and then when I go to view the message by opening the app, I have to wait 20 seconds to see anything. If the mail client can cache/update the main page when the notification is received, I imagine it's possible for metrotalk to do the same.

        Hi Nate,

        Your assumption is 100% reasonable, but unfortunately it’s also wrong. The mail client can do that because it is a native app, coded with resources and APIs that third-party developers don’t have access to. When a push notification comes to the phone and you miss it, so does the app. It has no way of knowing upon launching, what push notifications were received in the past. Combine this with the fact that Google doesn’t have a third-party API for Google Voice, and the result is that a full folder refresh is needed for presenting that new message.

        On the other hand, if you click on a toast notification upon receiving it, you can see that it opens instantly. In that case, MetroTalk tries to reduce the problem by indeed taking the data from inside the notification, and presenting it to the user.

        The closest thing I can think…

      • different ringtone options

        I don't know if you can change this feature but it would be nice to get some different ringtones

          Unfortunately the sound of incoming notifications is controlled by the operating system and not the app. Windows Phone 7.5 does not support changing this, so there is nothing we can do about it. If a future version of the OS supports this, you can be sure that MetroTalk will add this option.

          Thanks for your message!

            This is very challenging, if not impossible, to be implemented on WP7. I’d be happy to discuss the technical details of this with you, if you like. I am very optimistic though, that this feature will be part of the WP8 release. Thanks for your understanding.

          • Have a speech-to-text option

            Comes in very handy when texting. I use it all the time with SMS.

              Unfortunatelly, it is a very big challenge to implement this on WP7, if possible at all. This feature will arrive on WP8 though. Thanks for your understanding.

              • set default playback to the earpiece instead of the speakerphone

                Allow for more private and secure message review by playing through the earpiece instead of the speakerphone speaker.

                    Unfortunatelly, third-party apps on WP7 cannot play sound via the regular speaker phone. Such access is only available to native applications, or through exclusive access for high-profile apps like Skype. If this functionality is ever offered to all developers, you can be sure that MetroTalk will support it.
