UPDATE 2: IMAGES ARE ALSO BACK NOW
Images are also now working on the new server. So now whole app should work, & that too super smooth!
Now, we can focus on all other issues / new feature additions! Also, a big update related to images, in iOS is due very soon (within this month itself)!
UPDATE 1: TEXTS ARE BACK; IMAGES WILL TAKE SOME HOURS
Congrats, if you are reading this message, it means you are now pointing to the new server! And there is now no question mark issue. However, we are experiencing some small technical glitch related to images. At max, it should be fixed by 3 PM afternoon!
SERVER UPGRADATION TODAY - APP WILL GO DOWN
Tonight 12 Midnight we will start server upgradation to new much powerful server, which should take care of intermittent app stopping issues we are having lately.
Migration should be complete within 3-4 hours, but DNS propagation takes time & depends on user' ISP. Most of the users should expect resume of app service by 12 noon tomorrow.
We had attempted the migration last month but we had to roll back to old server due to glitch in the process which resulted in non english characters shown as question marks. Now we have addressed the issue & thus attempting again!
SERVER UPGRADE IN QUEUE - WILL HAVE SOME DOWNTIME!
Hi Folks, hows it going? Seems all great looking at your emails & reviews!! We see mainly 2 requests prominent nowadays - ability to block user & separate Hindi English texts. We will begin working on both points very soon!
However, this post is to tell about a nice to have problem that a growing startup faces (that we faced 3 time prior already) - server chocking. You must have seen lately the app has having intermittent downtime - and you guessed it right - which is because of sudden jump in users due to our super active consistent work in Android. Only last month we added almost double the number of android users than the prior highest record!!
So, in that regard, we are now shifting to a new powerful server - not just powerful, a 5 times powerful server than current!! Whoa! It should care about the app speed for at least one year now! The earlier it starts to choke, the better :).
We are already in process of migration. And as includes a certain downtime (5 min - 6 hours user to user depending on various factors), we will aim for India Late night time.
Hope to see you on new server very soon!!

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT - NEW SIMILAR MESSAGE FINDING ENGINE INSTALLED!!
Finally, much awaited, much desired, much needed improvement has been done to your app! Damn!
We have been successful in installing a brand new dupli finding engine (when someone uploads a message). It is not just another engine - it is currently one of the world’s best!
Now not only will it search fast - it will also search NON-ENGLISH characters - which will reduce the inflow of so many dupli hindi messages which couldn’t be bought earlier. This will be major accomplishment if turns out as expected.
Also, now short messages (like Status Updates) will also be detected. Earlier only large message duplicates were normally found.
Hope we will have a significant positive impact of this in app - in ease of work for mods also - which is top priority these days.
Signing off on a relief note!
