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 (ten years ago) link

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

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 7 November 2009 07:16 (ten years ago) link

I am posting from Zing Touch.

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!

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

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

JimD, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:30 (ten years ago) link

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.

I have posted a review.

exploding angel vagina (Scik Mouthy), Saturday, 7 November 2009 10:15 (ten years ago) link

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

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

lol at screenshot #4

prediction: stet's gonna get wasted!

Oh god, he'll turn up at mine and make me drink vodka with a Blue Aftershock mixer.

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

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

stet this is awesome, thanks so much man!

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

Pint from me! Thank you!

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

Ace. :)

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

ok this is pretty amazing -- fantastic work!

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

Holy lol at the screenshots

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

Found this thru my app store search. iPhone is being stupid and not letting me install.

kingfish, Saturday, 7 November 2009 18:19 (ten years ago) link

An image browser would be fantastic!

schwantz, Saturday, 7 November 2009 21:51 (ten years ago) link

D/l'ed the lite version today, will grab the $8 full when I get paid next week. Gotta save money for upcoming trip to NYC next week ON IPHONE.

feature request: landscape keyboard! also more bb code tags

囧 (dyao), Sunday, 8 November 2009 03:14 (ten years ago) link

yep, have landscape keyboard working already, also the full set of bbcode will be in 1.1. I've got a few other fixes, but I couldn't upload them while it was in review without losing my place in the queue. App store is frustrating as hell.

stet, Sunday, 8 November 2009 03:25 (ten years 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 (two weeks ago) link


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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks ago) link


stet, you are the best. Seriously.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 29 November 2019 23:31 (two weeks 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!

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

this is a gift that keeps on giving

Irae Louvin (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 15:11 (one week 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.

stet, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:53 (one week ago) link

(Thanks for being lovely, everyone)

stet, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:54 (one week ago) link

Thank you stet!

DJI, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:59 (one week ago) link

Are pics supposed to autoload? I see little picture frames that I have to click on.

Cow_Art, Thursday, 5 December 2019 01:17 (one week ago) link

twitter videos playing within zing is a very exciting development

call all destroyer, Thursday, 5 December 2019 01:31 (one week ago) link

right. won’t miss the workaround for that

Irae Louvin (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:01 (one week ago) link

Yes @CowArt

chet san telmo (alomar lines), Saturday, 7 December 2019 15:10 (six days ago) link

4.1 is rolling out now with all those fixes above, plus you can now sort search results and search within just one board.

(Challops: you can no longer filter just the threads on a New Answers, but that'll come back)

stet, Monday, 9 December 2019 23:48 (four days ago) link

Very very slick update stet, the attention to detail is impressive

an incoherent crustacean (MatthewK), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 05:43 (three days ago) link

Great job - justr a minor thing: any way to reinstate the "XX hours/days ago" time stamp beneath posts?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 09:50 (three days ago) link

Yes, it’s going to be a setting in the next version

stet, Tuesday, 10 December 2019 10:09 (three days ago) link

Omg you shlda warned me how amazing update was gonna be. Wuv wuv wuv

nathom, Tuesday, 10 December 2019 17:32 (three days ago) link

looks so nice!!

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 11:33 (two days ago) link

a niggle - occasionally when composing, dragging the cursor to the beginning of the post, or maybe just elsewhere in the compose window, erases all the text!

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 11 December 2019 12:17 (two days ago) link

Wow, I’ve never seen that! Does a double tap with three fingers and pressing the undo arrow (on iOS 13) or shaking (on iOS 12) bring it back?

stet, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:06 (two days ago) link

just tried and no. can be hard to replicate but try swiping with one finger fairly quickly pretty much anywhere in the compose window after entering some text.

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:13 (two days ago) link

Got it! It doesn’t erase the text for me but it does make the keyboard vanish. I’ll investigate
