Hello people, so we've had the app up for 3 weeks now and there's so much more to come - can you let me know how you think it's been so far ? Also featured you'd like to see coming up........

I love the interaction that I experience here. I think the live streams are amazing, and I was giddy getting to watch your shows from home. Thank you for all the work you have put into this app and for the opportunity to be a part of your journey. I know it was mentioned already, but notifications on posts I'm following would help in following conversations. Sometimes I lose track. Again, thank you so much for everything.

So far Benji I've really enjoyed it.. It's certainly a breath of fresh air compared to the wank that goes on with Facebook..!!! I look forward to seeing Simon doing his Attenborough commentary again on live streams!!!!!

Am so grateful the app was released during tour .. It was an unexpected gift to be able to stream . Take your time Simon before doing the next epic project . Rest and restore . I'm grateful for what you've done

Hi mate, been trying to post since I got back... Some pics... Won't go through. Do I need to update? Is it because the Vodafone SIM card is now back in my phone? Also... Call me back!! Need to discuss how to stream from my laptop...

I would love to see a studio walkthrough, show off equipment and plugins and explain how certain sounds were created.

Hi Benji! Did you happen to see the outline we made?

It's very cool. How about a fan art competition? Subscribers could vote and the winners could be offered in webstore as bumper stickers, et cetera.

Things I love about the app:
• The community.
• The music
• Simon/Slag (Hey, Slag somehow grew on me, between the funky accent and him explaining his job, I now have a profound respect for him)

Things that I don't like:
• The whole "friends" thing. There's not much of a point as of now to add people unless they message back and you use the message feature.
• The amount of time it takes for the music to download. I downloaded most of the tracks...but it's taken me 3 weeks.
• The chat feature freezes when I chat (I got around this by downloading it to my iPad and using my phone and iPad at the same time.
• There's no edit feature. I start typing accidentally send something and then give up on re-typing it and go smoke some weed instead.

Things I'd like to see:
• I wish that some of the live chats were scheduled. Though I don't mind dropping stuff to catch one, I'd rather NOT be the the girl who's running through the building knocking over models and stuff. You don't have to plan all of them, but some sort of schedule would be all kinds of epic.
•. Some sort of visual on where everyone is from. You don't have to include details, but some kind of infographic would be epic.
• I'm sure this is coming (and since I was at the SF show the day before the app released and so I missed out on all the awesomeness of tour and app at the same time) some kind of app pre-sale/ ticket discount/event perks.

This is my biggest question (especially since I was on the first end of the tour):
Why release the app in the middle of the tour if what was coming next wasn't as epic as the tour itself? It kinda sucks for the people like me who didn't really get the full benefit of getting to meet new friends at shows, people actually got an email in regards to the tickets they won. (I got lucky and tracked down Rain outside) I really hope there's something big coming (some sort of project/build up to another tour/live show planning...something). I'm really glad they ironed out the kinks on giving tickets away.

Also...whatever happened to the person who won the jam with Simon part of the Instagram contest. I won the live painting bit (and I never got to paint)

Okay...I'm finished
(You asked for a critique...you got one!)

Oh, yea...
Thank you. It does seem much longer. Caught live stream show, got to see into Simons tour life and the other shponglians. Proud to be one & part of the app and this journey. Such is life ! Things will work out eventually & all for just $1.99 a month ? Gotta love it all. Props!

From a noob to Simon and shpongle, but not super green. I got the news and picked up the app on launch. Little bugs still present. Since it began towards the tail end of the tour , thinking more tour stuff should be available and videos of shows. ..
But it's fresh. Falling in love with the everything si & shpongle. When I get something that clicks with me, myself & I....
Run with it and delve deep

Can't believe it's only been 3 weeks! The app has come a long way! I still have some force close issues, but MUCH better since the update. Music player now works better, all my subscription issues have been fixed. Looking forward to more notification options, like some others have mentioned even 5 minutes warning of a live stream would be helpful! Apart from that, totally love this app. Thanks again to you and your team Benji, this is an amazing vision!

Oh, and of course... more Younger Brother!!!

This has been a terrific experience so far. The 'need sub' bug has been fixed n player working much quicker since update.
Couple suggestions: There's really no need for the message notification red circle count thing for your sent messages, only received ones. It would also be nice to have an icon indicating which threads you have commented in, for quick reference when scanning the walls. Not related to the app, but SHPONGLE BUCKET HAT MERCH (;;;
And finally, utilize portal tech so we can all jump through our screens into pSi's studio n party together (:::

I agree with everything Shawn said. Having the fan wall work a little more message board style would be awesome. Edit function on posts would be nice. My subscription was messed up for a whole but seems to be doing just fine now. I do have some issues with it stopping and some chat glitches but otherwise it's great!

Overall, really enjoying the app so far, I know you guys have been working so hard on it - so thank you!!

Yes please an edit button for those of us who suffer from OCD, grammar naziism, other forms of pedantism, narcissism, mood swings you name it.....ah right and those few normal souls who also at times feel a need to edit. Praying already there's no spello in the above.....ya know
