Have at it

Thrills! Spills! Bugs! Try it out and let me know if you have any issues. Requires entering your password, there just isn't a way around it. I don't do anything evil with it though.

If anyone can come up with a better icon - and really, anyone could come up with a better icon - let me know.

With help from diamonddave85, although he's not responsible for the bugs or the length of time it took.

Needs a way to change background color, though.

Christine Green Leafy Dragon Indigo, Tuesday, 21 February 2017 02:09 (eight months ago) Permalink

I haven't seen the issue with the boards. What phone / Android version?

I'll look into those other requests. The background color thing shouldn't be tough. Might do.something about the typeface as well although Android doesn't make it easy.

S7 Edge, Android 6.0.1. It doesn't seem to save the chosen boards correctly, keeps a few but adds a random bunch more.

NI, Tuesday, 21 February 2017 04:35 (eight months ago) Permalink

Yeah I have something similar with the boards. In my case I only have ILM and ILE saved but I'm seeing a bunch of threads from other boards under New Answers. Also S7 Edge, Android 6.0.1.

Interesting. That shouldn't be ... will check out.

There are a few other known issues: sometimes will crash after coming back from a long sleep, and sometimes will get into a broken state when it fails to reach the server. Killing and restarting the app fixes.

Kind of a small annoyance but if I scroll halfway down the list of threads, open one, read it and then hit the Back button on my phone to return to the list, I'm returned to the top of the list rather than the point where I left off. If that could be fixed then great, if not no biggie.

heaven parker (anagram), Wednesday, 22 February 2017 09:45 (eight months ago) Permalink

Is there a minimum Android version for this? Doesn't seem to work properly on my phone, for instance "I only have ILM and ILE saved but I'm seeing a bunch of threads from other boards under New Answers" - there's no obvious way to select which boards appear on New Answers, they're all there. I think I'm on 4.4.

Transform All Suffering Into Poo (Colonel Poo), Wednesday, 22 February 2017 09:49 (eight months ago) Permalink

same on Android 7.1.2 , I can select and deselect boards with individual sliders and it remembers my choices but there's no effect on the post list (oh hey, I'm on 77? I don't remember if I knew that)

and I can reply to some posts but not others.

StanM, Wednesday, 22 February 2017 10:05 (eight months ago) Permalink

The board issue will be a quick fix. Still hoping to find a way to reproduce the posting issue.

one month passes...

lukas, thanks so much for making this! It is clean, simple and FAST: the ILX spirit in a nutshell.

If you are still looking for feedback, I would second most of the notes already made, and add only that being able to view my full Bookmarks page (in tandem with having some kind of Control-F analogue) would be excellent (I had to switch to browser to find this thread and post this), that some stylesheet customizability would be great (mainly though I just want quoted text to show up in a shaded box - it's a little too easy to miss the thin vertical line next to the text), and that something like the 'three years pass...' dividers for dormant threads would be good so you have to use less of your brain to catch where the current revive begins. But imho this is a really solid base, and probably more than 80 percent of the way to completely providing the ilx experience in the palm of my hand! Bravo.

ArchCarrier, Tuesday, 27 June 2017 19:29 (four months ago) Permalink

Moodles, what's happening? When you first logged into the app, did you see all your bookmarks, it's just that updates don't sync? Or did you not see your bookmarks?

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Tuesday, 27 June 2017 19:38 (four months ago) Permalink

If I open the app, i see my bookmarks come up correctly, but then if I update them, nothing carries over to my browser

Moodles, Tuesday, 27 June 2017 20:28 (four months ago) Permalink

woo!

another minor thought: maybe a little dot on the right hand side, or horizontal 'progress bar' tucked into the thread title bar, to indicate how close you are to the bottom of the thread?

﴿→ ☺ (Doctor Casino), Wednesday, 28 June 2017 14:08 (four months ago) Permalink

I can confirm the bookmarks-not-carrying-over issue - if it helps, it seems to only be an issue for switching to browser on this same device. On my desktop, all bookmarks are correctly updated. So maybe it's actually an issue with how Android or the Chrome app are handling the browser cache?

﴿→ ☺ (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 29 June 2017 12:00 (four months ago) Permalink

also a feature for opening ilxor thread links in-app instead of launching browser?

niels, Monday, 3 July 2017 14:06 (four months ago) Permalink

More misc ideas/notes (emphatically not demands - I am using the shit out of this app so in general count me as satisfied!):

* some shortcut function that loads the whole thread and puts you at the top would be real handy. I'm using this a lot on the subway when I kinda just want to load up a meaty thread for a 'longform' read, so scrolling up and whacking the load-more button repeatedly feels a bit kludgey.

* crosspost warning doesn't seem to work quite right - dumps you back to the thread, without the new post you're crossing, so you can't really adjust your reply or anything. then if you go to your reply and try to post it again, it still thinks you've got an xpost even though it's the same "new" post that's blocking you up... have to go back out to threads/bookmarks and back in for it to shake out of this.

* in general if my connection comes and goes or if I switch from data to wifi, the threads/bookmarks get hung up in a spinning refresh icon. have to force close the app and restart. that's pretty easy on my phone but I wonder if there is an easy fix?

* shortcut buttons to add bbbcode to replies (maybe another icon above the pink pencil?) would be great. ideally one could select txt and click to have it be bold, quotes, whatever, but I dunno how hard that would be.

* when writing a long post like this one, the pink pencil covers up what you're writing.

still groovin!

Does the "Bookmarks" tab show the board list for anyone else?

barbarian radge (NotEnough), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 11:02 (three months ago) Permalink

oh NM, I hadn't updated the app, all good now.

Thanks v much for this app, it's great and all, but I echo other's requests for a progress bar/scroll bar so I know how far down the page I am. Doesn't need to be on the right hand side necessarily - actually, a progress bar at the bottom would be dope.

barbarian radge (NotEnough), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 11:08 (three months ago) Permalink

there are a few threads that for some reason I can't load in the app, here's an example:
The Blue Nile: C or D?

niels, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 11:33 (three months ago) Permalink

Cool additions! Thank you!

Another suggestion (sorry!): at least for me, having the Bookmarks tab disappear from the home screen when all your bookmarks are up to date isn't really functional, because when one of my bookmarked threads does update, the tab doesn't come back, or weird "stuck on the loading icon" stuff happens similar to when I move between wifi and cell data, and I have to close the app and restart it to get a proper refresh. So I end up leaving a token thread not bookmarked at the bottom, which is a bit silly. I'd prefer the tab just always be there, even if it's empty... but maybe that's just me! Not higher priority than getting access to Search, Preferences, Flag Post, etc... just something I've noticed in the course of my (pretty heavy!) daily use of this app.

yellow is the color of some raisins (Doctor Casino), Tuesday, 8 August 2017 12:11 (three months ago) Permalink

NotEnough, can you check in settings which version you have? Version 1.10 should have a scroll bar on the right side when reading a thread (small, only appears when scrolling.)

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Wednesday, 9 August 2017 04:06 (three months ago) Permalink

just my two cents, but I'd prefer clicking bookmark on a thread did not automatically send me back to the list of bookmarks - it's something my thumb does while my eyes are still reading the bottom couple of posts. maybe it could be made optional?

yellow is the color of some raisins (Doctor Casino), Friday, 18 August 2017 18:22 (three months ago) Permalink

The app shouldn't break after changing networks any more, so hopefully needing to restart it is a thing of the past. Fixed all bugs with threads not loading that I know about, let me know if I missed any.

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Wednesday, 23 August 2017 21:11 (two months ago) Permalink

I've been unable to post from Flagging this afternoon. Not sure when the last time I successfully posted the app was though. Every time I clicked on the little icon to make a post, it would close the app, including after I saw your post above.

I adore the fact that you click on a bookmark and it takes you back to the list of bookmarks. Making it optional so I can keep this behaviour would be cool.

barbarian radge (NotEnough), Saturday, 23 September 2017 16:43 (one month ago) Permalink

haha i'm now actually kind of used to it so yeah i stand behind the idea of making it optional :D

but i stand behind adding search, full list of one's bookmarks, some kind of Control-F, and Flag Post as the most critical features missing, versus desktop ILX. still a hell of an app, gets that low-impact ILX vibe totally.
