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

can someone please post screenshots here for those of us who are itms:// deficient

I will, happily, because just yesterday I figured out how to do screenshots on an iPhone: as you hold the home button at the bottom, press the sleep button on top. It saves a screenshot to your photoroll, which you can then email to yourself and upload to tinypic.

Give me just a sec...

nearly one-third of a man (Z S), Saturday, 7 November 2009 15:28 (nine years ago) Permalink

Oops, I didn't see stet's post just above with the link to screenshots. Yeah, it basically looks like that. The only main difference is that pictures don't appear in the thread - you have to click on the individual posts to see them. Which is actually fine, because it makes picture heavy threads load a lot faster.

Again, great work Stet, this is going to make goofing off on ILX waaaaay easier at work now. :)

nearly one-third of a man (Z S), Saturday, 7 November 2009 15:35 (nine years ago) Permalink

Thank you! Yeah, it's never done the images inline -- the performance would be really horrible and slow. I might look at doing an image browser like in Facebook for picture threads, though.

stet, Saturday, 7 November 2009 16:33 (nine years ago) Permalink

Holy lol at the screenshots

Yeah~ I can flay~~~ (HI DERE), Saturday, 7 November 2009 17:22 (nine years ago) Permalink

im embarrassed at how rad i find this app, i mean, i dont want to admit how great it is to use ilx on my iphone, but, you know.

any chance we could get archiving of bookmarks for offline browsing?

max, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 13:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

you could just use instapaper for all yr offline bookmarkin needs - i find myself using it more than safari these days

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 13:38 (nine years ago) Permalink

Tracer: does it need to save whereever you are, or can it just remember if you're reading a thread or in the middle of compose. I've been trying to save state, but it's a bit tricky as the server can completely change between launches, and threads that were there have dropped off new answers.

Archiving of bookmarks is a good idea actually -- then you could bookmark a post before getting on the subway or w/e, and the whole thing'd be there on the phone. Or I could add in Instapaper integration.

stet, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 14:15 (nine years ago) Permalink

exactly as it was wd be ideal but just remembering what thread you were reading wd be almost as great

three weeks pass...

Am still working on this. Some things will take longer (offline, saving your place), but in the meantime I've just sent v1.5 to Apple, so it should be with you, er ...

Release notes:
NEW
- Full poll support: Read and vote in open polls; see results of closed polls
- You can now re-order and delete boards.
- Deleted boards are hidden from Site New Answers (to restore to defaults, just log in again)
- Compose posts with the landscape keyboard
- Timezone support. Thread, poll and message timestamps appear in your local timezone.
- New buttons for all BBCode tags, including smart completion of images and web links.

UPDATES
- Vastly faster bookmarking
- Much faster startup and login times
- Better quoting of messages for reply
- Better account checking in the login screen

FIXES
- Site icons are now loaded properly
- Threads with very old ilxor.com HTML now load properly
- Thread display keeps your place after rotation
- Thread status display updates properly after visting a nested thread
- Thread scrolls to correct place of permalinked post, if possible

oh yeah, the image and web links thing: if you have an image URL on the pasteboard and hit the image button, it'll automatically be filled out. If you have a URL on the pasteboard and hit the Link button, it'll fill out the long-style URL bbcode and leave space for your title. Otherwise, both just put in the simple tags.

* if posting from very bottom of thread, get this weird thing where i can't see what i'm typing
* if posting from mid-thread, it's no problem but there's no bar sayin italics/bold/more

Could there be a better way to signify which threads are polls? I know it says poll there, but it all just blends in with the rest of the text.

Jeff, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:38 (eight years ago) Permalink

Thanks guys!

Gbx: what do you mean about posting from the bottom? I can't make it do what you're saying. I have an idea what it could be though, I'll change it and it see if it fixes it for you.

The buttons: yeah, I don't know where to put them! If they're in a bar you only get one line of text, which is crap. You're not allowed put extra buttons in the navbar at the top, either. Am open to ideas...

(cutty: lol app of shame (every iPhone dev I know has one) TheLovecalc was the first app I ever wrote for the Mac, when I was 13 and thought you could impress girls with computers. So I made it my first iPhone app to try out the store and ads etc.)

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:41 (eight years ago) Permalink

Jeff: yeah, I could add a poll badge to the thread line (like the favicon on the boards page), would that be enough? Might make that a pref though.

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:56 (eight years ago) Permalink

ok weird it shows what looks to be like two lines of text but when i type nothing shows up. UNLESS: i switch to normal view, at which point the italic/bold/more bar disappears completely. THEN, if i switch back to landscape, the cursor is in the right spot, and i can see what i'm typing

Same as mine. I think I know what the problem is, though: it's to do with it checking what the phone's orientation is.

It sounds like for some reason your accelerometer isn't always reporting which way up your phone is, it's just reporting the changes. (If i'm right, scrolling to the bottom in portrait, opening the compose window and then turning to landscape should work right)

I'll try and write around it.

Xp: yeah the italic bar only shows up in portrait mode (no room in landscape).

stet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:17 (eight years ago) Permalink

ah, that's the thing. when I hit BM and then open up a response window in landscape, the italic bar IS there and it obscures what I'm writing.

Quick question: if I delete Zing Touch and then download it again, will I have to pay for it again?

I ask because something went horribly wrong with it a few weeks ago, and since no one else has mentioned it, I'm assuming it's something with my phone and I need to reinstall it. All my bookmarks were deleted, and whenever I try to add a new one, the app crashes. Also, it won't let me post new messages.

Try logging in again (same procedure as above). The board list is saved to make startup quicker, so it doesn't notice new boards being added to your account very often.

sunny successor: Do you have traditional bookmarking set? The app needs to use the new-style bookmarks, and might be crashing if it doesn't find them. To check, go into Preferences (on the site itself) and make sure "Use traditional bookmarks" is *not* ticked.

Any plans for an Android app, Stet? Way more Androids than iPhones in the UK (although admittedly these stats don't take into account the iPod Touch, or the probability that ILX users skew Apple-wards).

Background Zombie (CharlieNo4), Saturday, 19 June 2010 10:10 (eight years ago) Permalink

Sunny: that feature's in there, sort-of: hit "edit" on the home screen and delete the boards you don't care about and it'll hide them from SNA too. (Do you just want to hide from SNA and still keep them on the list?)

Android: Ken C was talking about looking at doing one. I'm probably not: don't have one and don't know how to code for it!

hi stet, i use zing just about everyday, thanks again for developing and releasing it.

a few quick suggestions that might be useful for the next update (if you're planning on updating, that is)

- when posting a new message, it would be nice if the trashcan icon could be moved farther away from the keypad. several times i've been feverishly typing out a message, a paragraph or two deep, and then I accidentally miss a letter and trash the whole message.
- alternatively, maybe a warning message would suffice, e.g., "are you SURE you want to delete your message?"
- a remove bookmark function would be helpful.
- probably much much more difficult to implement, but a search function would be sweeeeet

Stevie, if you swipe left (OR right, IME) on the bookmark, a red button that says "DELETE" should appear.

dumplings (Jesse), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:30 (eight years ago) Permalink

sunny, i think you can do that? i appear to have done that, anyway - i think by swiping right on the boards you don't want, on the opening-screen list of boards, you can delete them from your sna as well as from the list of boards that show on the opening screen?

(i would test this but i don't know how to bring a board back once deleted)

Where's the edit button? I have a gear in the lower right corner. Oh yes I can swipe on the bookmark but I don't want to delete any of them.

I just want to view polls. Maybe vote too.

edit button is top right for me (but it won't help w anything but deleting boards/bookmarks you don't want).

stevie, when you go to a poll thread, does nothing happen when you tap the top post that says 'x poll options'? do other posts open when you tap them (like e.g. posts w images in)?

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:44 (eight years ago) Permalink

When I tap the OP it just lists the OP w/ no poll options. Images come up and all though when they're there

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:47 (eight years ago) Permalink

this is how it works for me:
click the thread with the poll.
the first "message" should say something like "3 poll options". click it.
the next screen will list the poll options. click the one you want to select.

hey stet zing is awesome

it crashes for me on occasion but no more than any other great app. obv, being able to start threads and use a search function would be great, but jumping over to safari for that isn't too hard.

my number one request/ complaint however is this:

-if you have a thread bookmarked on a message that is more than 100 posts from the end of the thread, zing will only take you to the last 100 posts, and not to your bookmarked post.

obv not a problem that comes up too much, but it would be nice to have fixed in an update.

Not really complaining, but one minor glitch: occasionally when I touch a thread, it just instantly closes down and I'm back on the iPhone home screen. As crashes go, it's not that inconvenient or frustrating (like a freeze-up or time-out would be).

That's actually quite a hard one, Grady. Will have a think.

Crashes: If you sync with iTunes, you'll find crash logs in these folders:
Mac OS X : ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/<DEVICE_NAME>
Windows Vista: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>

Look in that folder, find the ones with "Zing" in the title, and fire 'em off to stet @ ilxor and i'll take a look. Lots of them likely to be fixed in the latest update, though.

I'm...wondering...was there a problem with using a normal browser via the iphone or similar device? I never had a smart phone before now but this droid thing seems to do okay with ILX although it doesn't remember where I left off a long thread and return me to my exit point. But other than that, it seems v functional.

I've got ten bucks. SURPRISE ME. (Laurel), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

IIRC this whole thing came about because stet was messing around with Apple application development and made an ILX reader as a test application, which he then converted into an iPhone app

do you use bookmarks Laurel? Zing handles bookmarks much much better than the phone's browser ime - on the iphone anyway.

It's so that when yr fave threads get updated, you can 1)see that there are new posts (useful for when you haven't been ilx-ing for a while and a thread you're interested in has a new post or posts but is sunk beneath many other threads), and 2) takes you directly to where you left off in reading the thread

On review, my phone doesn't handle SNA, it only shows one board at a time, I think, even though my log-in preferences are for lots of boards to show up.

Will Zing work on a droid?

images on the main thread screen was just unusably slow when I tried it out. It might be OK on an iPhone 4, but I'll look into it.

one month passes...

1.9's approved and should go live tonight! Changes:

NEW
Multitasking is enabled on supported devices, including remembering your place and faster startup. (iOS 4+)
You can now start new threads.
You can undo the button actions in compose windows, including the trashcan.

FIXES
A crash that could happen when deleting a bookmark has been fixed.
Now warn when trying to set bookmarks with old-style bookmarking set in settings.
Thread timestamps now update correctly
Better handling of a changed password.
Properly uses the serif font in the message detail view (thx Ben)
Fixes an issues where reordered boards weren't saved. (thx Ben
(Thanks also to sunny for lots of testing)

Also: I know Zing Lite's pretty neglected -- made some mistakes that mean updating it is harder than it should be -- so I've put Zing Touch on sale for $2 until I can sort it out. If you use it a lot it's probably worth it -- there's a ton of bug fixes and features in ZT.

I see this too and am on it. I haven't changed in anything in the relevant bits, so I'm guessing it's iOS 4.2. That bookmark error is actually supposed to be a suggestion -- the idea is that it comes up when bookmarking fails and suggests you might try double-checking the setting in preferences, but there wasn't enough space to make it clear. Am rewriting all that code just now anyway for increased betterness.

(I also see the huge long pauses in posting in Chrome on ILX sometimes too. Wonder if they're related. (I use Google networking code)).

These things fix it:

- clearing memory using System Activity Monitor app
- closing a load of open apps
- rebooting phone

It happens in Tapatalk as well (link here, scroll down to CptanPanic's post) so I assume it's an iOS library issue.

For some reason, i've been able to post to either the sandbox or normal ILX. i get this error:

"could not post message for unknown reasons. (Sorry, btw)"

anyone else get this?

got it! i didn't realize we were still on the beta.ilxor server, so i changed it back to the old one

i'm still having the problem i mentioned a few posts up (i can read posts, but i can't make my own, and my bookmarks don't work). the instance is set at ILX, the username and pw are the same as always, and i've tried both http://beta.ilxor.com and http://www.ilxor.com as the servers.

not sure if this helps, but i never had the problem until we switched to the sandbox and i adjusted my zing settings accordingly.

anyone have any ideas?

Kill your zing instance and restart?

yo stet i have noticed lately that when clicking the safari logo in a post launches the WHOLE THREAD in safari, when iirc it used to load the permalink of the post you were coming from?

―  (gr8080), Sunday, September 11, 2011 1:36 PM (4 months ago)

I haven't changed anything my end; I wonder if Safari has changed. You do have to be logged in on ILX in Safari before it'll work, though -- the auto-login strips the message. And it only works with pint Zing; Zing Lite just opens the thread.

― stet, Monday, September 12, 2011 7:10 AM (4 months ago)

hmmm ok i just tried again-- def login in to ILX on safari, and it just took me to the whole thread, not the permalink i was coming from. seems really intermittent, cant figure out why its working in some instances and not in others.

not really a big deal, just figured it was something you'd want to know that was happening.

When text takes up more space than fits in the post window, the cursor and text I'm typing disappears below the bottom of the box instead of the text scrolling up so I can see what I'm typing. Is this normal and does it happen for everyone? I thought didn't used to do that. I get around it hitting return a bunch of times and going back to what I was writing.

An odd thing happened today: a couple of times the text I was writing switched became invisible. I could see what I'd written before, but everything else after a certain point wouldn't show up, but it was definitely there b/c I could see it when I selected the text. I'm sure that's just a glitch in particular copy of the app on my phone, but I thought it was strange.

⚓ (gr8080), Monday, 13 February 2012 00:15 (six years ago) Permalink

The disappearing text for me has mostly been an overzealous keyboard/toolbar area where the text is behind the toolbar. Maybe it's not calculating the cursor position re: the toolbar correctly?

valleys of your mind (mh), Monday, 13 February 2012 00:17 (six years ago) Permalink

Yeah, this one's a pity. In iOS 2-4, it didn't calculate the heights of the multi-line text fields correctly, so I had to make it deeper than it should have been. They fixed that bug for iOS 5, which means Zing is now set too deep.

It's an easy fix, I'll push out a change soon.

Just sent new version to Apple. Not a huge amount of changes, but fixes some long-standing stupid bugs (including the compose window being too big), adds support for multiple sites/accounts, does a much faster job of bookmarking and checking bookmarks and some other stuff.

Have also whacked the price down to Tier 2, which I think is $2. This will probably be the last version that works on iOS 4-5, next (which am working on now) will require 6.

That's not a bad idea. Where it lives now it is right in the path of certain finger arcs that lead to, among others, the 'A' key, the 'E' key and the Shift-key, keys that seem to get hit reasonably often.

two months pass...

Do you think it might be worth getting rid of the "DELETE EVERYTHING YOU JUST WROTE" button? It'd pretty easy to do this w/o the button and it's so close to Q and W that I constantly hit it but then type a few more characters before I realize so that shaking/undoing won't restore the text. I'm willing to bet more people press it accidentally than on purposefully

Nope. It just goes. It takes a while to figure out what's going on actually. For a whole I thought I was hitting some magic combo of keys, like Shift-delete.

You can shake to undo the deletion, mind (although someone said that crashed for them).

Yeah; the version I'm working on has filtering of loaded threads, which is a step in the right direction (eg for any of the threads Zing knows about you can find them by name).

Actually doing Search is a little bit further off.

cad: do you mean on the site proper? It's because we're on both www.ilxor.com and ilxor.com and the code treats those as two different sites (mostly for historical reasons that sometimes prove handy).

If you're logged in on eg ilxor.com and someone makes a link to www.ilxor.com, when you click it you'll get the logged out view. And vice versa.

Elvis Telecom, Friday, 18 July 2014 02:54 (four years ago) Permalink

Thanks! One thing I could definitely do with the time to investigate is a fast way to get an NSAttributedString out of our limited subset of HTML. (There's a attributedStringWithHTML call, but it appears to spin up webkit in the background and takes forever. This needs to be incredibly quick as it'll be called for every message displayed). I can do it easily on Mac by applying Bold and Italic traits, but that's not supported on iOS. I've filed a radar and my plan's to wait for them to support that, as otherwise I can't see how to do it in any reasonable sort of time.

(I was also thinking I could store the NSAttributedStrings in the DB here and fire them straight at the client, but there doesn't seem to be a good serialisation of NSAttributedString that doesn't take a lot of work to deserialise anyway)

How are Zing Touch and Zing Lite differentiated?

fields of salmon, Tuesday, 12 August 2014 16:52 (four years ago) Permalink

Zing Lite is free, and I haven't updated since day dot, which means it works on the OG iPhone, but has fewfeatures. It has ads.

Zing Touch is pay-for, but has lots of features, including:

  • it runs in the background/supports multitasking,
  • it has a better composer
  • it lets you customise the homescreen
  • it has iPhone 5/5s support for the larger screens
  • supports polls
  • landscape support for composer
  • has a dark mode and a serif font theme.
  • It's betterer

stet, Tuesday, 12 August 2014 17:23 (four years ago) Permalink

Zing Touch (tm) will also:

  • fix your parking tickets in certain jurisdictions
  • get you a 10% discount when you buy rounds
  • rate your excuses for being late to work on a 1-10 scale of believability
  • find lost socks

does zing normally skip posts on long threads?? I was catching up on the EOY thread on my iPhone as I was at school all evening, and got very confused when people started talking about songs that hadn't placed. Turns out it was missing out loads of posts. Like here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32863603/2015-01-21%2021.55.12.png

the post after seandalai's skips forward half an hour & misses out like 40 posts (inc 2 of the tracks placing!).

missing posts things happens for me, especially on high-volume threads - it seems to grab something like the last 100 messages and tacks them on to the bit of the thread I was at when I'd last loaded it. It's a bit confusing sometimes but I'd taken it as a data-conserving feature & never really minded.

New one looks great stet, cannot wait.

, Friday, 23 January 2015 17:52 (three years ago) Permalink

Oh that suggests something I can look at, yes. It does load the last 100 posts. But when there's a gap it's supposed to add the "load more posts" marker. It's possible if you are keeping high-volume threads open for a long time the marker is going in the wrong place.

the missing post thing as I get it is when I load a bookmark; but maybe it's because it only loads the last 100 posts since the bookmark? on fast moving threads that's not enough. so I end up not reading on zing fast moving bookmarked threads. if there's a way to improve that it would be great.

• iOS 8 ~theme~ including serif and night mode versions
• Search, sort-of: You can find threads by filtering
• Choose only the boards you want to see on the homescreen
• Flag Post support
• "Killfile" - block posts from certain users
• Redesigned composer: no more trashcan! No more crashing on undo!
• 50% faster at loading longer threads
• Images from Flickr work properly again

*****SPOILERS*****

okay so I figured "this won't be bad, maybe some awkwardness and depending on how it is I'll either keep going to the kitchen or run back to my room"
so of course I walk out there and she's got her ass in the air while this scrawny indie fop WEARING A TRUCKER HAT AND NOTHING ELSE is attempting to INSERT HIS COCK IN HER ASS.

ON MY COUCH

I go out and this sight actually caused me to go "oh ugh god!" My roommate tumbled out of her awkward position onto the floor landing on her shoulder and Trucker Hat fell to his side with a grunt. my roommate shrieked "what are you doing home?!" and scampered into her room, almost on all fours, past me. she slammed the door behind her. Trucker Hat gathered his pants and RAN INTO THE KITCHEN

of course i followed him and he was sputtering "sorry dude sorry dude" and I just said "let me get my sandwich and you go clean up MY couch!" he again said "sorry sorry sorry" and ran out of the kitchen and to the bedroom, he pounded on the door and asked to be let in, and my roommate let him in.

My issues:

-Please consider adding an option for a thicker font. So hard to read. I'm finding it easier to just go back to the web version, at least I can zoom in on it.
-Did you use to retain the title of the thread at the top when you loaded it? The way it is now, I click and if I forgot what thread I'm in I have to go all the way back to the top, then back down to where I was to read the thread.
-When loading a thread the info/status bar at the bottom covers up the bottom half of the last post. Small thing, but an annoyance all the same.

Everything else is good.

-When loading a thread the info/status bar at the bottom covers up the bottom half of the last post. Small thing, but an annoyance all the same.

I was gonna mention both of these too

but otherwise A+, LOVIN THIS NEW ZING SO MUCH

Pull to refresh is infinitely better for me. Because so many other apps already use that mechanism to refresh, it's just odd to have to tap a button to do it.

I love the Clear/Clear? button! It should make everyone happy. Also love the link, image, bold, etc buttons all being in one row.

Improvements would be to display the thread title once in the thread, as prev. mentioned, plus a spinner when clicking on a link, so you know you've actually succeeded at clicking on it. And URL or page title once in a webpage. But mostly thank you and I hope to donate as soon as it becomes possible.

Yeah thread title is a big one, every thread looks like it's called "zing touch". It's amazing how quickly I forget which thread I clicked on.

Also is there still no way to see all your bookmarks? Search didn't seem to work, and I had to go into safari to find them the other day.

Looks great though, I dig it.

Big spinner. Basically if I'm in SNA and pull to refresh it does refresh the first time, but stays there spinning forever above the refreshed list. And iirc I can't refresh again while it's doing that - I have to go back to the home screen/board/bookmark list.

(I've got one bookmark hanging around that I haven't cleared up/updated for a few days.)

one additional thing - after a couple of weeks of zero ILX time I've got an embarrassing number of bookmarks. scrolling *up* through them (and it does seem like it's just up) is p glitchy.

small beer in the grand scheme of things, and as I say the app's great (like woof, it's prob my most used) but if you are doing a bit of mopping up...

I'm looking into the xpost thing, I haven't seen it myself, but have suspicions.

I've just sent a new build to Apple, which has a few things
- Supports Dynamic Type, so you can whack the font size up to hueg. But the price is you have to use Helvetica.
- Some of those bugs upthread are fixed
- I've added the system share sheet button. But amazingly the system one doesn't support opening in Safari and you have to roll your own. Fuck Apple on that one, I'll wait till they add it.

zing does something kind of weird that i don't understand:

when i'm in a thread, and i tap on a post (to view a photo of video for example) then tap back to the thread view, it will scroll UP a few posts

it seems very counter-intuitive, like it should auto-scroll DOWN or at the very least stay put

it can also make looking at photo-threads very difficult

stet, Monday, 14 September 2015 17:21 (three years ago) Permalink

I'm sure it has been mentioned before, but having a mechanism to move to the next post (and backward) without returning to the full thread of posts would help alleviate the issue. Especially for the image heavy threads.

Jeff, Monday, 14 September 2015 17:32 (three years ago) Permalink

yo stet I don't think it's an issue in zing but as I haven't hunted down the normal bug thread:

index.jsp isn't parsing content encoding the same way as other pages. the html sent to client is utf-8 as on other pages, but bookmarked threads with updates at the top show "?" instead of special characters -- the music notes in the "caek's corner" thread is a good example, as is a recent chicago thread.

admittedly I had been playing around and noticed that you can swipe left-delete the sna, show all boards and settings buttons as though they are bookmarks (this crashes the app btw if anyone's curious), not sure if that has caused this problem

Oh yeah, thanks for that — I'd forgotten about all that. It's a remnant from the very first version of Zing, which let you delete boards from the home screen and would then hide all their threads. I'll do a fix.

To get them back in the meantime, go into accounts, open your account and hit login again. Iirc that should restore them. (If not, reinstalling will)

IMPORTANT: As you might have noticed, a bug in Zing means that it didn't handle tonight's ILX upgrade properly and existing ILX accounts are failing to connect. The fast fix is to delete Zing and reinstall from the App Store. It should work OK after that.

(If you don't want to do that, you can try deleting your account from the settings page by swiping left, and then adding it again. But this is where the bug lies, so it might not work. If it doesn't, reinstall from the App Store).

Yes am afraid this might be the end for the old Zings: "It Is A Mystery" often means "your login cookies expired and we couldn't get new ones".

As the server has changed, old zings would have worked until their cookies expired. Most will have expired now. I'd update them, but Apple makes it incredibly difficult to build software for old iOS devices nowadays

I can see how this is confusing, sorry. You can't have two accounts on the same server, only on different servers (eg ILX and the Sandbox).

If you want to start using a new ILX account, remove your existing account first by swiping right-to-left on it in the list of accounts.

I just want to say thankyou for the Block Poster feature on Zing, it's great :-)

badg, Wednesday, 30 November 2016 15:13 (two years ago) Permalink

that's a thing now???

Mordy, Wednesday, 30 November 2016 16:50 (two years ago) Permalink

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

Mordy, Wednesday, 30 November 2016 16:51 (two years 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

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 (two years ago) Permalink

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

stet, Saturday, 10 December 2016 10:02 (two years 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 (two years 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 (two years 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 (two years ago) Permalink

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

mh 😏, Saturday, 10 December 2016 16:32 (two years ago) Permalink

is there a search or find button on the zing thing?

Do you guys use the standard font or switch to helvetty? What is this standard font called?

i use the serif font

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 11 December 2016 00:30 (two years ago) Permalink

Iago no. It's the last thing missing imo. Still love and use the app everyday tho

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 (two years 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

The xpost bug is a bloody bastard and I promise to try and fix it. It drives me personally crazy so you're not alone. It's just hard to fix.

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 (one year 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.

That's great to hear! I don't know if this goes against any unspoken ILX rules but I'd be more than happy to put money towards this for your time & effort.

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 (one year 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 (one year ago) Permalink

it looks ok, i just noticed it looked different

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 16:36 (one year ago) Permalink

Just switched to dynamic font and loving it.

Is there a reason Zing doesn't show the poster's name? I know that takes up space but it's kind of an important part

Screamin' Jay Gould (The Yellow Kid), Wednesday, 3 May 2017 01:51 (one year ago) Permalink

It does, above the post. Or do you mean something else?

stet, Wednesday, 3 May 2017 06:55 (one year ago) Permalink

Oh, maybe this is a Zing vs Zing Lite thing? Using Zing Lite if I read a thread it shows the messages but not any post info like who posted it. You have to click each message to see that stuff.

Screamin' Jay Gould (The Yellow Kid), Wednesday, 3 May 2017 11:39 (one year ago) Permalink

Ah, yeah Zing Lite is pretty old and busted, sorry. If you're on a newer iOS (which would cause the username to hide), proper Zing is a *lot* better.

It is totally worth $2.99.
