Im sure I am just dense but what are the diffs btwn the paid and free zinger? I need to update my tooch sw before i can even use this anyway.

i obtain much semillon (Trayce), Saturday, 7 November 2009 07:34 (ten years ago) link

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.

tehresa, Saturday, 7 November 2009 07:35 (ten years ago) link

Ah of course. Going blind is me.

i obtain much semillon (Trayce), Saturday, 7 November 2009 07:36 (ten years ago) link

Another pint from me, raa!

Oh, and I got it direct from the ON IPHONE app store.

Featurerequests: reordering of boards in the board list, so I can drag my favourites to the top. And those little filled-or-hollow bullet points that tell me whether there are new posts in a thread.

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 (ten years ago) link

stet, Thursday, 28 November 2019 01:45 (one week ago) link

SEARCH.

It's rolling out now. It's not quite perfect, but it works: find threads, find posts, from the entire archive. Works if you have multiple sites added too.

It's surprising what a difference it makes — feels like an app full of 20 years of stuff now, rather than one that's just about bookmarks.

I said almost exactly ten years ago that I wanted to add it, and then y'know, things got busy, there was stuff to do, whatever, sorry. (Also: it was really surprisingly hard)

The big thing missing is sorting, I'll get on that for 2029.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 28 November 2019 08:42 (one week ago) link

wow stet, this is what’s been missing from my life! merci beaucoup.

one weird thing: in dark mode you don’t get to see what you’re typing in the search box, the results still show up tho.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 28 November 2019 11:04 (one week ago) link

Ah, are you on iOS 11? It works on iOS 13 but I can’t figure out how to make it work on the older phones.

stet, Thursday, 28 November 2019 11:18 (one week ago) link

iOS 12 here, yes

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 November 2019 00:14 (six days ago) link

Fucking hell. Well done, thanks a million. You could have made this a paying update. Would have gladly forked out

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 29 November 2019 09:53 (six days ago) link

Challops:

I don’t like how the lines have disappeared between threads in dark mode. Bring back the lines or at least alternate background colors like answers do (in both modes).

I don’t understand the HUGE type announcing the board / thread title (or the app) at the top of each screen? It doesn’t need to be so big. Also, when I hit filter threads, the field floats behind the huge type and it’s annoying.

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 November 2019 16:17 (six days ago) link

challops accepted. Some of this is work in progress -- filter threads will be replaced by thread search soon, and the huge type problem is an iOS 13 change that's half-finished (because I realised we have to keep iOS 12 support for the older phones).

Lines on threads is a good shout, I'll try and put those back. Confess I just got tired of slogging at Search code and felt it was good enough to get out.

stet, Friday, 29 November 2019 16:59 (six days ago) link

Couple more challops:

1. The orientation bug where Zing jumps back a bunch of posts if you rotate it back and forth is still there.
2. Some kind of memory leaks with YouTube and maybe Twitter. If you start a YouTube video and then click back, the video never gets shut down entirely and you continue to hear audio until you kill the app. Maybe embeds aren’t being killed correctly?

DJI, Friday, 29 November 2019 17:36 (six days ago) link

YESSSSSSSSSSS

stet, you are the best. Seriously.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 29 November 2019 23:31 (six days ago) link

cosign with DJI - also if you tap a Twitter post on e.g. the image, any linked video won't link correctly, but if you tap on the date of the post, it loads correctly and you can tap through to the video or images linked.
A small thing too - when shifting day-to-night and vice versa using standard type appearance, the big headlines stay in the colour of the old mode (i.e. they stay white, on a light background, or black on a dark background). If it was possible for Zing to switch to night mode when the phone does so, that would be awesome, but maybe break things for folks not on iOS 13.
Offered only in the spirit of wanting to help, not complaint - it's a great app!

an incoherent crustacean (MatthewK), Saturday, 30 November 2019 00:37 (five days ago) link

As others have said, I'd have been happy to pay for this upgrade.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Saturday, 30 November 2019 00:44 (five days ago) link

this is a gift that keeps on giving

Irae Louvin (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 15:11 (two days ago) link

Challops version going to Apple, fixing:
- Lines are back between messages
- Orientation bug is fixed at last
- Twitter videos now play inside the message view(!)
- And stop playing when you leave the view

I can't fix the dark/light switch not changing the headlines without dropping iOS 12 support (as far as I can tell) and there are way too many people still not on iOS 13 yet.
