We are proud to release the first iteration in the 5.0 series of the Bimmerpost App available for all newer Android devices!

From the ground up
The 5.0 series represents a total ground up refresh of the app. Not a single line of code from the old app is here. As you might imagine, that has taken a really long time and we continue to work day and night on getting the 5.0 series up to snuff. Our goal is to make this the single best version of Bimmerpost you can use.

WIP = Work in Progress
Because we've started from scratch for this release we had to rebuild all the of what works back into the app. At the same time, we have been working to build in new functionality to take the app to the next level. In a sense, this App is on three parallel tracks:
  1. Mirror existing features into the new app
  2. Fix bugs
  3. Add new features

At this point we've passed our internal threshold for >85% for mirroring of existing features and <1% for bugs. Of course the goal is 100% for mirroring existing features, 0% for bugs and the addition of new features is totally open ended.

We believe we will hit those end targets within 3 months.

We love to hear from you
Good or bad, let it fly... Let us know what you think of the app.
Love it? Awesome we need hugs too.
Found a bug? Post it up.
Hate the way something works? Post about it here
Missing a feature you used to use in the old app? Yup, post about it here.

This will only help us get to those issues faster and fix them.

Whats the most glaring issue right now?
Notifications tab. This is our area of current intense work right now. You might notice that your notifications counter isn't exactly accurate. Thats because on the back-end we've prepared the system for a new way of thinking and handling notifications. We will slowly roll this into the app over the next month, and will become more obvious in upcoming updates

*** Please note, when planning to upgrade to the new version, its highly encouraged you first delete the old app and re-install from scratch. Since this is a total rewrite of the app, we think its better if install with a fresh start for the best experience

Yup, everything we've done on the android side is almost ready on the iOS side as well. We want to get it a little more polished before release. Then both apps will be running in complete parallel.

That's good to hear. My two biggest complaints would be that I can't delete posts from my phone, nor can I edit image links without the bbcode automatically changing from [img] to (url) which changes the displayed image to a link.

Edit: just saw that you can in fact delete posts on mobile now from the "edit post" menu.

Yup. When it comes out let us know if it's working or not working for you

Fantastic. Will do!

Also maybe consider not having a "reply post" automatically repost the ENTIRE chain of prior messages. Just quoting the last message would suffice. Right now I have to manually delete everything above my comment to get it to look short and neat like this.

Agree, we are grappling with the balance of how much to auto cut and how much to leave. It will likely be auto cut with an option to restore the full trail

Hopefully this means the new iPhone version won't crash every time I try to attach more than 4 photos to a post.

Don't like the design language, but it is what it is.

Threads are not marked as read in the MY forums section once they are opened. Feature or bug? (Bug for me).

I would make the bubble/window where you can toggle next/previous page a bit smaller. Maybe cut it 1/3.

Good luck making the app better, it was about time.

Does the "search" function work for you?

Since the past couple of months, it would no longer generate any result on both Android and iOS devices…

And I'm not the only one..

Hey Poochie, long time no see

Nope, doesn't work for me either. Always says "error establishing a network connection" anytime I try to search a forum.

Also something else that's annoying: why is it that when I click your link it defaults to my mobile browser and not the app?! So annoying!

They are on the iOS version and bringing iOS issues here πŸ˜‚

Let's keep this to the android version 5.x.

If we can identify and iron out all the issues on the 5.x series here then both platforms will win. Trust me

Lol my bad, I wasn't trying to hijack the thread. I'll save the rest of my gripes for the dedicated iOS thread.

Just to clarify. As far as I can tell search is working on 5.x

If search isn't working on the android 5.x version please do post about it here πŸ‘
