Your info is stored on a server

  • Previous versions of Happy Friends stored information locally. So if you used it on more than one machine, you would have to manually coordinate subscriptions between them. In version 0.49, the information is stored on a server, so the subscriptions and the outline state go with you where ever you go.

  • You still have to log on to Twitter on each machine, of course -- that's how Happy Friends knows who you are.

It remembers the cursor

  • Previous versions of Happy Friends remembered the expansion state of your outline, but not the cursor location. Starting with 0.49 we also remember the cursor.


  • Be careful about having more than one copy open, there's no checking to be sure you don't overwrite the outline on one machine with another. I plan to put this in, but it's not in yet.

  • If you have any problems, or questions, please post a comment here.
