Zing Touch: ILX now ON IPHONE (and ipod tooches too)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

After spending forever in review, the ILX iPhone app has been approved.

WHAT IT CAN DO
- Read and post to ILX (or the Sandbox or any other server running a really recent version of ConversationBoard for that matter)
- Set and delete bookmarks
- Automatically check for updated bookmarks
- See pictures in posts, resized for the screen
- Open Youtube and links in its own browser
- Quote post text
- Easy bold and italics in the post composer
- Post drafts automatically saved until you delete or post them

COMING SOON
- Polls: Right now the threads are displayed, but the options aren't there and you can't vote
- Starting a new thread

WHAT IT WON'T DO
- Work with the old-style bookmarks. If you've set them in preferences, unset them to use Zing.

WHAT IT NEEDS
OS 3.0 or better (if you've got an old iPod Touch you'll have to upgrade, but 3.0 is miles better anyway)

Zing Lite is free on the app store. There is also the buy-Stet-a-pint version, Zing Touch, which is £4.99/$7.99 and will probably get new features first. Right now they are identical, except for some wee ads in Zing Lite.

Anyway links to the App Store (they open in iTunes):
Zing Touch and Zing Lite

xp stet was doing some stuff for me too, so his ilx workload is heavier than normal :/

d85 - thanks for the offer. i'll probably take you up on it but let me figure out if i want to clean anything up first. in the meantime if you email me at lukasb at the gmail i'll send you a link to the code.

okay android folks, here it is maybe 60% baked

http://theporouscity.com/app-release.apk

- by default, only downloads images in thread view on wifi, you can change in settings
- if you tap on an individual message you can watch video or bookmark it
- bookmarks are fake - they don't sync with your regular bookmarks since you're not logged in

let me know if you need help installing it

Mordy, Wednesday, 30 November 2016 16:50 (three months ago) Permalink

does it only work on the app or does it work on the browser too?

Mordy, Wednesday, 30 November 2016 16:51 (three months ago) Permalink

Just the app I think, tap on an individual post then the exclamation mark on the top right corner and you get the option to either flag post or block poster

lag∞n, Saturday, 10 December 2016 00:08 (three months ago) Permalink

I finally bought this a couple of weeks ago and have been reading ILX a lot more than I have in recent years. One thing I might be missing is: How does one share or link to a post?

beard papa, Saturday, 10 December 2016 07:19 (three months ago) Permalink

Ah you can't, sorry, I'll bring that feature back soon.

stet, Saturday, 10 December 2016 10:02 (three months ago) Permalink

i've deleted this and reinstalled and it still won't sync with the website's bookmarks :(

jason waterfalls (gbx), Saturday, 10 December 2016 15:43 (three months ago) Permalink

One thing that's possible is people are mistapping the bookmark icon. I've found myself doing it.

Also, to successfully bookmark you both have to hit the button dead-on *and* wait for the "bookmark set" message. If you miss or go back too early, it won't be set. That has been driving me nuts.

What it shouldn't affect is bookmarks set on the site appearing in the updated bookmarks list. Are you seeing that?

stet, Saturday, 10 December 2016 15:54 (three months ago) Permalink

Zing/ilx just don't communicate at all, w/r/t bookmarks

like if i open zing right now, threads that i read and bm'd on the website are showing up in the list. if i bm them in zing, they go away, but that isn't reflected over on ilx.

jason waterfalls (gbx), Saturday, 10 December 2016 16:23 (three months ago) Permalink

are you sure you're on the same account? very odd

mh 😏, Saturday, 10 December 2016 16:32 (three months ago) Permalink

Are there any plans for a full-functionality Android app? Happy to pay for something along the lines of this with log-ins, bookmarks, notifications, etc.

NI, Wednesday, 14 December 2016 18:51 (three months ago) Permalink

Zing doesn't even have notifications yet. But there's an early (unofficial) Android app up thread you can play with ^^

I'm sorry if this is old business, but the xpost bug is the worst thing ever and I personally would prefer there to be no xpost warning at all and I wonder if others feel similarly

cool :-) but in the meantime I honestly would be ok with the warning simply not coming up at all, if that's possible/easy to implement?

banfred bann (wins), Thursday, 15 December 2016 23:02 (three months ago) Permalink

Unfortunately not - that's a rule in the server. You have to see it once, then you can say "ignore xposts". That's where the bug lies.

I can't turn my font into a heart. So I am going to say no.

Michael F Gill, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 01:55 (two months ago) Permalink

I changed the serif font on the last release because the old one looked a bit mish on iPad; the standard font is the Apple default one, and that changed from Helvetica to San Francisco with iOS 10, perhaps you saw one of those two?

stet, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 11:34 (two months ago) Permalink

it looks ok, i just noticed it looked different

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 16:36 (two months ago) Permalink

Just switched to dynamic font and loving it.
