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

Stet this is really cool and would be even better if I had an Iphone :-( great work though.

just one question ... what the hell are you drinking at £4.99 a pint????

Thanks, Stet! I've found that ilxor.com is surprisingly legible/navigable in Safari on my tiny 4s screen

Xp agreed on the preview spoilers, I had to remove the Americans thread because of them. Setting to come.

― stet, Thursday, May 10, 2018 11:58 PM (yesterday) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

Haha, the Americans bookmark is the one that keeps me from having a clean slate. It's been sitting there for months now as I am yet to catch up. Removing it now and feel better already ;)

no to previews
no to notifications

everything else rly sediment? i mean awesome :)

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Friday, 11 May 2018 13:11 (seven months ago) Permalink

I would like notifications, those could always be not allowed, or easily disabled.

Jeff, Friday, 11 May 2018 14:11 (seven months ago) Permalink

true

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Friday, 11 May 2018 14:44 (seven months ago) Permalink

Yeah I doubt I would put notifications on rolling Netflix threads or such but could be nice to activate for some low intensity niche threads.

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 11 May 2018 17:30 (seven months ago) Permalink

i feel like bookmarks already perform a lot of the functions that notifications would

let’s get real (alomar lines), Saturday, 12 May 2018 05:29 (seven months ago) Permalink

Latest update broke the filter threads feature within the forum for me (iPhone 6, latest iOS 11 update).

Otherwise, really like the previews.

Naive Teen Idol, Saturday, 12 May 2018 17:02 (seven months ago) Permalink

i hate to complain because i love zing and appreciate that it's there, so much, but i don't think i like the previews, or at least they're not useful for me. i guess i just don't understand the point of them - the previews show up on bookmarked threads with no replies. but in order to clear the bookmark, i'm going to have to open up the thread and read it anyway. so what is the preview for? to decide whether or not to check out the thread? but i'm one of those Inbox Zero people, so it's not like i'm just going to let unread bookmarks sit there for days. i have so many bookmarks that i'd quickly accumulate a couple dozen unread bookmarks if i didn't clear them out.

er, this may be more of an issue with how i use bookmarks than the new preview feature, but i'm wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as me.

obviously DLC (Karl Malone), Saturday, 12 May 2018 17:17 (seven months ago) Permalink

sorry, i meant

the previews show up on bookmarked threads with NEW replies.

obviously DLC (Karl Malone), Saturday, 12 May 2018 17:17 (seven months ago) Permalink

No it’s fair — this might be a feature just for me! What I find is I sometimes read a bookmark and it has something I want to check out later (like a video) or something I need to do (like investigate a bug) so I keep the bookmark where it is. But then I can’t see if the thread has updated.

I was going to add unread status balls but figured this would be better.

stet, Saturday, 12 May 2018 18:29 (seven months ago) Permalink

the good post you want to read is only rarely the very latest post, ftb the conversational gestalt of ilx so basically karl otm i think

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 12 May 2018 18:39 (seven months ago) Permalink

I was going to add unread status balls

i like this idea! or maybe, even just to add a little more information, a number to indicate the number of new posts since you last checked the bookmark. if there are two updated bookmarks, one with the 14 new posts and the other with 1, that provides useful information in a few different ways.

obviously DLC (Karl Malone), Saturday, 12 May 2018 18:44 (seven months ago) Permalink

that's a p dece idea

still holding out for @ing people, which would create a link at the top of the page going straight to the post where you were @ed (or something)

The only thing we need is search

Fuck all the newfangled nonsense. If you want to make ilx about stalking yourself & others, you gotta put the work in

four weeks pass...

Tried those suggestions but no joy.
Have you logged in and out on Zing too? If all else fails deleting and reinstalling should sort it


Been off board for a few weeks but tried this suggestion again and all good! Thanks stet.

Now just need to sort out the font size re the board descriptions. Seems to have become really cluttered.

lefal junglist platton (wtev), Saturday, 9 June 2018 05:56 (six months ago) Permalink

been meaning to mention, I can see that it's a neat idea but I really don't like the preview. Any way to make that an option?

dan selzer, Saturday, 9 June 2018 11:43 (six months ago) Permalink

It’s on the roadmap, coming in an upcoming release.

Did you ever get a chance to take a look at the bug where if you rotate the phone to landscape and back, the thread jumps back a bunch of posts?

DJI, Wednesday, 19 September 2018 17:27 (two months ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

any chance we can get rid of the preview (or make it an option) soon? I just got hit with a Better Call Saul spoiler!

dan selzer, Thursday, 4 October 2018 17:51 (two months ago) Permalink

yes

and i continue to be hit on preview by certain prolific posters i have reluctantly blocked

Preview?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:02 (two months ago) Permalink

bookmarks in zing show a preview of the latest post in the thread underneath the thread title, takes up a lot of room and often contains spoilers.

Machine Gunk Jelly (Spottie), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:54 (two months ago) Permalink

ahhh. i dont use bookmarks.

i mostly just rely on the dots! So on mobile ILX is kinda hard to navigate at all haha.

Having SNA show up before / above bookmarks would be a massive improvement to this user’s experience

Not sure why but the “help me learn Japanese” thread will not load any answers at all on iOS 12. Everything else fine apart from the occasional lockup.
