New UI is a step backwards
It's like you guys understand that people like Path's UI, but you don't understand why people like Paths UI. The deck of cards metaphor can be excellent when executed well, but this is not a good implementation. I should be able to slide horizontally anywhere on the screen to move the "card layers" around. Making me have to hit a tiny button in the top left of the screen is cumbersome. Also, more taps for the same action as when the toolbar was on the bottom. Speaking of the toolbar, you removed it and hid all the menu items in a side panel, but then you added a sticky menu and title bar to the top of the screen. This means you are using the same amount of (if not more) vertical space for navigation, with fewer options easily reachable, and no additional room gained for the actual news feed. Another gripe is that the menus don't keep their scroll position when you back out of an option. Particularly noticeable when trying to explore all the options in the app. I see what you guys are trying to do, and I think it can be done well, but this one was not ready to be released.

Current Version is Worthless
I'm one of several iPad/iPhone Yammer app users at work, and we all agree that this latest version -- as of 3/27/12 -- is absolutely HORRIBLE. It's laggy, doesn't update smoothly, and generally has most of us not using or uninstalling it altogether. Yammer app-writers: Do you guys even use your apps before you release updates? I'm sorry for sounding so harsh, but you guys have a great product, and I hate to see it go in this direction with the app.

Does the job
Works as directed, basic features and not much more. No polls, praise, etc. You'll have to use the web site for that stuff.
