Today I am happy to announce a new contact list feature for keeping track of members to whom you wish to send messages.

Sometimes when you visit a member's profile, you want to send a message but you are not yet ready to send a message. The new contact list feature allows you to "bookmark" that member in order to easily contact the person later.

[transcript] Hi, my name is Patrick, and I’m the lead developer of Oh My Japan, a website that allows native speakers of English and Japanese to meet new people who share common interests. In this video, I’d like to briefly talk about what makes Oh My Japan different than other websites that you may have used. Today, we live in a world where many things are getting a little better all the time.

I'm happy to announce that we have improved the way that pictures are displayed on member profiles. Now, when using a mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, etc.), you can tap a picture to enlarge it. You can then use the buttons as seen in the screenshot below to easily view that member's next or previous picture. sample screenshot of accessing pictures on a mobile device
