New Navigation for our Android App

Posted on 8/27/2013 by Philip Arkcoll, VP of Product

We’ve got a new look! Today we’re opening up the new navigation in version 3.5 of the Tuenti app for Android which is simpler and easier to use than before, and will gradually become available to users in the coming weeks. With this version, users will be able to access notifications, events, and photos through the new menu located to the left of the chat menu. We’ve kept chat at the center of the experience just like always, and users will find the feed to the right of it and will be able to keep up with every detail of the Moments their friends share.

Users will now be able to access their personal profiles through the new menu, and Tuenti Móvil clients will be able to manage their accounts from the menu in order to top up their credit, view call histories, access their voicemail, and read the FAQs.

In this new version for Android, users can upload photos directly from their albums and share them in comments just as they would in a group chat. They’ll also receive notifications when a friend tags them in a photo. We’ve also included a feature allowing users to share their location and/or locate a place nearby.

We’ve also improved the registration-through-invitation process by increasing the number of friend suggestions a user will receive so that they can invite all of their friends and contacts to download Tuenti.  This way, they’ll be able to chat with everyone as well as share Moments with only the people that really matter. We’ll be back with more updates soon.

A Ton of New Functionalities in the New App for iPhone

Posted on 7/11/2013 by María José González, Product Manager

Today we’re presenting version 2.6 of the new app for iPhone that includes new functionalities such as private messages, events, mentions and Tuenti Móvil account management.

Starting today, users can now receive, read, and send private messages from the new Tuenti app for iPhone without having to log in on the web platform. New private message notifications will be received like new messages in a conversation. Additionally, a user with several message threads with the same user will be able to access all of them through the menu in the upper part of the chat window. We’ve also included events so that users won’t miss a single birthday or plan, as well as mentions in Moments and notifications for wall comments.

Just like the last version of Tuenti for Android, we’ve integrated Tuenti Móvil account management right into the app! Now, clients of the mobile operator will be able to view their call history, top up, view data usage, etc. conveniently from their smartphones. Until now, these functionalities were only available from on native browsers.

And if that weren’t enough, we’ve added even more including improvements to phonebook synchronization so that users can easily add contacts to Tuenti chat. In this new version, we’ve also implemented the ability to request a phone call if a user does not receive the SMS verification code correctly during initial registration.

To wrap up, we’ve included a ton of improvements and new features that we’re inviting you to try starting right now through the download link of the new app for iPhone. We hope that our Tuenti users will love it. Update and enjoy!

We’re Including Voice over IP Calls and Tuenti Móvil Management in our Android App

Posted on 6/21/2013 by Paul Iliffe & Pedro Mejuto, Product Managers

Our app keeps getting better, and now we’ve integrated the Voice Calls (VoIP) functionality as well as mobile account management for our Tuenti Móvil clients in the latest versions of the Tuenti app for Android.

Now, users that have version 2.6 or higher of the new Tuenti app for Android can make voice calls over IP to their friends and contacts without spending a cent of their phone credit through a secure Internet connection (standard 3G or Wi-Fi). Additionally, users that are Tuenti Móvil clients will be able to make calls with Zerolímites, even if they don’t have any phone credit or data, totally free and with no limits!  

We’ve also integrated a feature for Tuenti Móvil customers that will allow them to manage their mobile account directly from within the Tuenti app.  They’ll be able to view their call history, top up, see their data usage, etc. conveniently from within the Android app. This functionality is available from through their native web browser and is free for all Tuenti and Tuenti Móvil users, no matter what type of smartphone they have. The account management functionality will eventually be available for the rest of the apps.

We’ll have more news for you soon as we continue to create added-value services for our users.
