I kind of love that max's display name in one of the screenshots got the phrase "rip dom passantino" into the App Store.

kshighway1, Saturday, 7 November 2009 04:08 (fourteen years ago) link

ok maybe one of the best iPhone apps so far ON IPHONE

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 (fourteen 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 (fourteen years ago) link

Ah of course. Going blind is me.

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

Another pint from me, raa!

JimD, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:27 (fourteen years ago) link

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

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 (fourteen years ago) link

it's ten bucks for us, more like "buy me a jug"

lol at screenshot #4

Anyway, yes. This is truly a piece of aceness.

J, Saturday, 7 November 2009 13:24 (fourteen years ago) link

it's a (I believe) 70/30 split between Apple and stet, so I think it work out to about a pint :^)

囧 (dyao), Saturday, 7 November 2009 13:33 (fourteen years ago) link

stet this is awesome, thanks so much man!

call all destroyer, Saturday, 7 November 2009 13:39 (fourteen years ago) link

Pint from me! Thank you!

ljubljana, Saturday, 7 November 2009 14:11 (fourteen years ago) link

Awesome stuff, thanks very much, everyone! I really appreciate it. I had no idea there were so many iphones on here.

koogs: There's some slightly out-of-date-but-mostly-right screenshots in this post

JimD: Yeah, am working on editing the boards that appear on the start page so you can cut it down to your favourites and reorder etc.

stet, Saturday, 7 November 2009 14:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Ace. :)

JimD, Saturday, 7 November 2009 14:52 (fourteen years ago) link

ok this is pretty amazing -- fantastic work!

elmo leonard (elmo argonaut), Saturday, 7 November 2009 14:55 (fourteen years ago) link

can someone please post screenshots here for those of us who are itms:// deficient

I will, happily, because just yesterday I figured out how to do screenshots on an iPhone: as you hold the home button at the bottom, press the sleep button on top. It saves a screenshot to your photoroll, which you can then email to yourself and upload to tinypic.

Give me just a sec...

nearly one-third of a man (Z S), Saturday, 7 November 2009 15:28 (fourteen years ago) link

Oops, I didn't see stet's post just above with the link to screenshots. Yeah, it basically looks like that. The only main difference is that pictures don't appear in the thread - you have to click on the individual posts to see them. Which is actually fine, because it makes picture heavy threads load a lot faster.

Again, great work Stet, this is going to make goofing off on ILX waaaaay easier at work now. :)

nearly one-third of a man (Z S), Saturday, 7 November 2009 15:35 (fourteen years ago) link

Thank you! Yeah, it's never done the images inline -- the performance would be really horrible and slow. I might look at doing an image browser like in Facebook for picture threads, though.

stet, Saturday, 7 November 2009 16:33 (fourteen years ago) link

Holy lol at the screenshots

Yeah~ I can flay~~~ (HI DERE), Saturday, 7 November 2009 17:22 (fourteen years ago) link

One thing I'd request; a white background on the app logo. It'd look so much nicer on my screen.

exploding angel vagina (Scik Mouthy), Saturday, 7 November 2009 18:05 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm thinking it may be the same issue reported earlier:
_ime (13.3/iPhone8), threads that are polls do not show poll results when you select them through search

― willem, Friday, January 17, 2020 10:12 AM (eight months ago) bookmarkflaglink

Yeah, that's right. Tricky to fix, that -- I'll see if I can come up with something.

― stet, Friday, January 17, 2020 6:56 PM (eight months ago) bookmarkflaglink_


Ah, I missed this. I bet it’s this – I only noticed this when going through a bunch of old threads I searched for.

Again, this is not the end of the world so if it’s tricky to address, it’s totally live-with-able.

Naive Teen Idol, Thursday, 8 October 2020 13:49 (three years ago) link

The workaround is to bookmark a post from the poll thread and then open it from the bookmark if that helps

stet, Thursday, 8 October 2020 18:00 (three years ago) link

Yeah that works, thanks!

Is this the thread for thread-specific technical issues? Rolling Classical 2020 can’t be loaded in Zing, saying:

There are some old or corrupted messages in this thread which zing can’t read

Because the Zing icon looked a bit like a MAGA cap, I’ve taken to calling it Hat FM in tribute to the UK Office.

It’s better than a MAGA hat, it’s a hipster fucker trucker hat.

Hi, can’t find it anywhere, but I’m having triuble with Zing— none of my bookmarks are working, tho I’m logged in and so forth. It appears to be attempting to load them but then I get the ! inside a triangle symbol. Any help appreciated!

we need outrage! we need dicks!! (the table is the table), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 16:16 (one year ago) link

I had that. Logging out of Zing and in again helped, though it still doesn’t seem to be syncing bookmarks between Zing and web as reliably as it was.

Alba, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:21 (one year ago) link

ah okay. tried that once to no avail but will try again. merci!

we need outrage! we need dicks!! (the table is the table), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:36 (one year ago) link

same thing. i even uninstalled and re-installed :/

we need outrage! we need dicks!! (the table is the table), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:42 (one year ago) link

Ugh, sorry! is this still happening? I'll take a look

stet, Thursday, 19 May 2022 14:56 (one year ago) link

stet, it resolved itself on its own, without any signing out or uninstalling etc. works fine now! not sure what the issue was. thank you, tho!

has zing been delisted from the apple app store? just tried to install zing ON (new) IPHONE and can’t seem to find it anymore

Oh that’s strange, not showing for me either.

here you go, muttonchops Yaz (gyac), Thursday, 9 February 2023 19:04 (one year ago) link

same here. funnily enough I had a problem with the app some time last month and removed it. it was still in the store then or I wouldn’t be here now (perish the thought)

i saw mommy kissing twink henry kissinger (breastcrawl), Thursday, 9 February 2023 19:20 (one year ago) link

Sorry about that – I need to pay Apple yearly to stay on the store, and they had an expired credit card on file. Should be back shortly!

stet, Monday, 13 February 2023 13:24 (one year ago) link

thanks stet!

Not exactly urgent, but I am finding that the latest version of this app crashes when I am reading a message and tilt it to landscape. I’m on iOS 16.3.1.

Naive Teen Idol, Wednesday, 19 April 2023 21:59 (ten months ago) link

It’s been like that for years, for me.

Any chance the dark mode could be tied to the system setting? The number of phones without that feature must be pretty small now.

assert (matttkkkk), Wednesday, 19 April 2023 22:07 (ten months ago) link

Love this app and have a feature request:
In-app toggle to lock orientation - I don't think I'll ever use landscape mode on my phone.

Spencer Chow, Wednesday, 17 May 2023 18:56 (nine months ago) link

two months pass...

I've put it on the list, but while you wait this is pretty easy to automate with Shortcuts. Just make a new Automation that sets orientation lock on every time Zing opens (and another one that disables it when Zing closes). Ok now I type it out that sounds cumbersome, but it's pretty easy!

stet, Saturday, 29 July 2023 23:03 (seven months ago) link

five months pass...

Dear stet, I thought I had asked about this but I can’t see that I did in any of the zing threads so ignore me if I’ve brought it up before and you said no.

Is there any chance of a function to hide certain thread titles from sna? If not no problem, but not sure how doable it would be

mojo dojo casas house (gyac), Thursday, 4 January 2024 20:51 (two months ago) link

I have in fact built this - but to make room for a button to do it, I then did the thing you’re supposed to not do and bundled it with another change (an in-line composer) which is turning out to be bloody tricky and is making the whole thing take ages. I’ll try and hurry up.

stet, Friday, 5 January 2024 00:05 (two months ago) link

Oh seriously don’t rush on my account, even knowing it’s a possibility is cool af. Thank you for replying!
