Mimi 4.7 Beta 1

The latest update to Mimi adds a couple of new features as well as some much-needed updates.


  • New tabbed layout option in settings
  • Using more of the material design library
  • Removed the HD button when viewing gallery pictures
  • Gallery pictures get more detail as you zoom in
  • Updated post dialog

To use the new tabbed layout, go into the settings and choose it from “Layout Type” option. This should also open things up for more layouts in the future. A decent amount of the work in adding a new layout type was in making things more modular.

Mimi 4.6 Beta 1

The beta version of Mimi was removed from the Play store a little while ago. I’m no longer able to update it. The market version is fine, but the beta is gone. Instead of starting a new beta, I’ve decided to just release the apk and let people have at it.

Installing an apk requires a certain level of technical ability, but there are a ton of tutorials online.


  • Added font size option
  • Updated auto refresh to be a lot more reliable
  • Added notifications
    • Can be turned on and off
    • Shows total unread as well as replies to posts you’ve made

Too many ads!

As many of you know and have commented on, the 4.5 versions of Mimi have a new ads system. I honestly thought people would prefer it over the banner ad that took up space on every page. There are less places within the app that have ads now than when the banner was being shown. The only difference is placement and size.

Whatever my excuses are, it doesn’t change the fact that the perception is that there are too many ads in the app. I get the message and I’m working on fixing it.

My goal is always primarily to have a fun app that people enjoy using. Ads are included to give my time value and motivate me to keep making improvements. As much as they are hated, ads have kept me working on the app for almost 3 years now.

I just wanted to let you¬†know that I hear what you’re saying about ads and I agree with you. Next time I’m at my dev computer I’ll reduce the number of ads.
