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????

tomofthenest, Saturday, 7 November 2009 11:42 (seven years 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.

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.

Me and diamonddave85 are working on it.

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.

Did the font change recently?

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 January 2017 01:09 (four months ago) Permalink

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 (four 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 (four months ago) Permalink

it looks ok, i just noticed it looked different

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

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

stet, Wednesday, 3 May 2017 06:55 (one month 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 month 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.

stet, Wednesday, 3 May 2017 11:41 (one month ago) Permalink

It is totally worth $2.99.

It drives me bloody nuts. I know what it is but it's hard to fix. I will have another attempt this weekend

stet, Friday, 26 May 2017 12:23 (four weeks ago) Permalink

You can avoid it you killing Zing and restarting. It's related to how many times a thread has been reloaded

stet, Friday, 26 May 2017 12:24 (four weeks ago) Permalink

forgot to mention that's how i stopped it at that point, thanks for mentioning it though

New version rolling out to App Store now. Not many changes, but:
- now uses https by default
- supports twitter embeds
- goes back to the right place in the thread after looking at a specific post.
- faster startup

Note: this version has to update saved accounts the first time it runs. I've tried to make this reliable but it might fuck up. If it does, delete your account and re-add it

stet, Friday, 2 June 2017 14:53 (three weeks ago) Permalink

- supports twitter embeds

awesome, thx stet

Bookmarks and posting is disabled on zing for me for some reason, it just stopped working one day. i deleted and reinstalled, logged in again, and it's still not functioning. ideas? Yes, my OS is out of date but that is not going to change today because I am going out of town tomorrow. Just wondering if there is an easy fix for this VERY important problem. How will I keep up with ILX on the road?!?!?! :)

It's crashing a lot for me lately, not sure I can identify any particular condition except maybe it's because of links?

Which Zing are you both on? Blue-hat Zing is unfortunately pretty much dead at this point (because of the switch to https) and will behave like you describe. I should really take it off the store.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 13 June 2017 17:31 (one week ago) Permalink

also i think it kicked me off 77? Show all boards doesn't include 77 borad

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 13 June 2017 17:32 (one week ago) Permalink

That means it's not logging in properly after thinking it has. Try:
1. Delete and reinstall from App Store
2. While setting up yr account, set the server to "ilxor.com"

stet, Tuesday, 13 June 2017 17:35 (one week ago) Permalink

ok
did that
it doesn't look any different but maybe that's because i have no active bookmarks atm

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 13 June 2017 17:40 (one week ago) Permalink

77 still not there

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 13 June 2017 17:41 (one week ago) Permalink
