How to send hopGrams

There are two main ways to do this: fastPost and hopGram:

fastPost is for quick, short replies and shout-outs to the group. fastPosts are appended to the current featured beermat. Choose either a predefined message, or type your own, choose an emotican optionally add and rate your location, and tap send. The hopGram is posted and sent to your active group.
