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

Zing needs a feature analogous to the hollow dots to identify threads with new posts.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Thursday, 10 May 2018 12:17 (four months ago) Permalink

Otherwise I’m impressed. I haven’t used it in a long time and it seems much improved

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Thursday, 10 May 2018 12:18 (four months ago) Permalink

yeah it's rock solid now when opening a thread, no funny little jumping around, just goes straight to last read post. a+

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 10 May 2018 13:31 (four months ago) Permalink

Looks great. Still has the bug where if you rotate your phone to landscape mode it jumps back a bunch of posts when you go back to portrait.

DJI, Thursday, 10 May 2018 14:45 (four months ago) Permalink

Nice update. Thanks! A few comments:

In dark mode, the color of URL text is dark blue and literally impossible to read on the grey background.

I use dynamic font on an iPhone 6s and it would be cool if that applied to posts when selected - which I often do to see attachments and/ or the text formatting. Or some option to increased font for posts.

still doesn't sync bookmarks with my account :(((((((

gbx, Thursday, 10 May 2018 14:47 (four months ago) Permalink

I wish I could figure that out. There’s no actual sync involved — everything just gets the list of bookmarks from the server. Somehow it is keeping two separate copies for you. There must be something in your browser thats funky.

stet, Thursday, 10 May 2018 19:52 (four months ago) Permalink

Any chance for notifications for updated bookmarked threads?

noooo don't

valorous wokelord (silby), Thursday, 10 May 2018 21:02 (four months ago) Permalink

Bookmark preview isn’t so great when you’re intentionally not reading a thread for a TV show because you haven’t seen the ep yet.

Jeff, Thursday, 10 May 2018 21:08 (four months ago) Permalink

yeah same with sports. sorry, hate to complain! not into it, just more to scroll through too

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 10 May 2018 21:14 (four months ago) Permalink

Do people want notifications? I keep thinking about it but I don’t want to make yet another engagement-farming app.

Check out these three great challops you missed.

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

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 (four months ago) Permalink

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

true

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Friday, 11 May 2018 14:44 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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)

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.

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?
