Hi @Hugo U !

The new share icon is so better than the old!
So great for new users!

Since the deployment of the new settings page, the numbers of followers/following disappear randomly, I need to restart the app to get back the numbers

UI Suggestion:
It can be nice to add icons in the track context menus like on the iOS app ;)

Good week Android team!
