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

Am I the only one for whom zing crashes after viewing a post?

And thanks stet!

brimstead, Thursday, 5 October 2017 18:25 (one month ago) Permalink

I get that crash too ... I can read threads, but if I click on an individual post, then try to go back to the thread, the app quits. This has been going on for a while and still occurs with the latest version of zing. I attributed the problem to the antiquity of my 4s, which can't run any iOS later than 9.3.5, but maybe it's more general?

Also: thanks, stet!

I have no complaints, I've bought Zing twice now, would buy again

El Tomboto, Friday, 6 October 2017 00:59 (one month ago) Permalink

the < button seems a little less sensitive in the new version but I blame Apple for that, stet remains supreme

El Tomboto, Friday, 6 October 2017 01:00 (one month ago) Permalink

^^co-sign on both

I too have the crash-upon-going-back-after-viewing-post for a while. Reinstalled, did not work. 4th gen. iPad on 10.3.3.
I mostly use Zing on the iPhone (5S, no problems there) but would appreciate a fix if possible.

willem, Friday, 6 October 2017 07:16 (one month ago) Permalink

The back button thing is driving me nuts. The problem, I think, is that I put the full thread title in the titlebar. In iOS 6, the back button kept the "Back" label, so it was plenty big. In iOS7 that changed so that if there wasn't room it would shrink right down to just the "<". I wonder if it's got even smaller in iOS 11. I'll try a version with no title and see if that helps.

Always assumed it was a deliberate choice by stet to let I stand in for Q to keep the interface less crowded.

I’m biased, I use block quotes all the time and today I noticed there’s room for it

then the IAP approach works great; the rich people without headphone jacks can buy in, the rest can just use italics (signaling their desperate hardscrabble existence)

El Tomboto, Monday, 16 October 2017 15:16 (one month ago) Permalink

The reply button automatically adds block quotes

yes and I would much prefer that it do italics instead

Yeah I've been wondering about that. Doesn't seem like a consistent bug.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 21 October 2017 16:32 (one month ago) Permalink

The “back” button should totally be an IAP

Stet just missing out on opportunities all over the place

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 October 2017 16:39 (one month ago) Permalink

If you want quotes formatted in italics that’s a job for your style sheet. Quotes are quotes.

Is it the one where you have to click the little arrow on the left? Seems like the target area got smaller in the latest update...

DJI, Saturday, 21 October 2017 22:52 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah I assume folks are just talking about the left caret being harder to hit

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 October 2017 23:07 (one month ago) Permalink

it's worse than that. like Ned said, sometimes it works as expected and sometimes there's no choice but to close the app.

I’ll show you it on my phone, Stet.

tbh a lot of my apps have been acting up since OS11 in similar ways - Kindle will freeze up and stop responding to swipes. Chrome, especially when FB is loaded on it, just randomly ignores taps on various buttons.
