Nice .  👏

Make a competition for the best youtube tutorial for using the app . You will flood youtube with it ;) 

Also the name does not convey category unless someone is familiar with mql5 . 

(also your icon :

does not convey "chat with fellow traders from all over the world, and study technical and fundamental analysis" . 

contrast (with bad design :P )

If you have an account on mql5 and you register a new one on mql5 channels :

  1. can it log in to mlq5.com ?
  2. is it independent and there will be no issue ? 
  3. If its not independent and you use static ip , and you log in from your mobile data , will that block the account ?
1st observation : Let them see what is available , let them consume it , don't gate it behind a login . Like reddit , make it possible to like it before i register .


2nd observation : The search on mql5.com , for chats ,returns groups the user is not joined in . In the app it only returns groups the user is joined in , even though the search is a different screen and there is a list of groups the user is joined in already . 

3rd , when i scan a qr code with the camera , a qr code of an mql5 channel , it goes to the browser not the app . Is there a url or a way to create the qr code to pop up straight in the app ?

Looks clean and simple . Its easy to use . Nice work 

I changed the password on mql5.com then opened the app and it logged me out . Nice

Is there a dedicated url version ? (desktop is the meta trader i guess)

Suggestions : 

1.Send to ea from the app , send to channel from ea . It opens up a lot of potential : 

  • controlling eas from the app
  • sharing charts from the terminal and to the terminal

2.Post about it on your twitter 

3.Post about it on your youtube channel

2+3.In both posts above don't just say "new MQL5 Channels App , download now" .If someone is scrolling youtube and is bored , if they see "new MQL5 Channels App "  it means nothing , and like the name and the icon , they must be familiar with mql5.com . Don't aim for the familiarity of mql5.com , aim for the familiarity of trading.

4.Chart record , allow the users to snap a video with a live chart of an asset as background and a box (their placement and size) of the camera (of the mobile phone) in front of it . Save locally , if you don't have the capacity to withstand the bandwidth pressure , and they will be able to share it on social media .

  • No watermarks no name of app in the video , the users will ask other users how they did it.
  • Even better : allow navigation of that chart as the user is recording 
  • You'll need chart access though in the app 

5.all the suggestions posted here for groups and channels still apply.

6.search filters :

  • members
  • language
  • words in title (optional)

Are you sure? On mine the search does return the groups available. It does not limit the search to my own. This is the iOS app! I don't have android to compare.

Yeah android . Do you have your profile locked if i recall ? if not , could this be from the setting ? How does it look on the iphone ? On android you have 4 tabs at the bottom , really easy , channels ,groups , messages , settings .

Is your channel search unlimited (in returned results) too?

*saw the screenshot , it does not have a bar below the search input field ?

Yes on android it also returns search results for channels (when you reach the end of the list it loads more?) . Groups only if you are joined

There could also be a bug in the Android version, given that it seems to be new for Android but has been available on iOS for a long time.

Your profile is locked too ? we can rule this out then

Yes, it is locked to "friends only"!

Ok , so its a bug , a feature or a slow connection then.
