YAY! AND IM IN THE SCREENSHOTZ!

cutty, Saturday, 7 November 2009 04:02 (nine years ago) link

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 (nine years ago) link

cutty, Saturday, 7 November 2009 04:13 (nine 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 (nine years ago) link

Ah of course. Going blind is me.

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

Another pint from me, raa!

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

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

JimD, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:30 (nine 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.

JimD, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:32 (nine years ago) link

amazing!!

Tracer Hand, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:46 (nine years ago) link

Clay, Saturday, 7 November 2009 09:51 (nine years ago) link

koogs, Saturday, 7 November 2009 10:06 (nine years ago) link

I have posted a review.

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

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

lol at screenshot #4

niggaz thought M.A.S stand for mop and shit (sic), Saturday, 7 November 2009 12:02 (nine years ago) link

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.

What do you want? This ain't an egg shop (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 7 November 2009 12:38 (nine years ago) link

Stellar.

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

stet this is awesome, thanks so much man!

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

Pint from me! Thank you!

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

Ace. :)

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

ok this is pretty amazing -- fantastic work!

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

Holy lol at the screenshots

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

An image browser would be fantastic!

schwantz, Saturday, 7 November 2009 21:51 (nine 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.

Just searched found and downloaded today. Awesome!

do any of these profits go to server costs

It's-a not so bad (jeff), Sunday, 8 November 2009 02:41 (nine years ago) link

feature request: landscape keyboard! also more bb code tags

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

just spotted a bookmarking bug too. Will fix

stet, Sunday, 8 November 2009 03:25 (nine years ago) link

I don't think stet making this app and stet running the server have anything to do with each other, jeff. If it were any other user writing the app would you have asked the question?

Mark C, Sunday, 8 November 2009 11:18 (nine years ago) link

hey stet are u going to add admin log at some point?

call all destroyer, Sunday, 8 November 2009 14:07 (nine years ago) link

Wasn't going to -- it's not in the API, so it'd be hard. Same with search, but I'd really like to add that somehow.

Shld also add SB for czn's portable suggestin needs.

stet, Sunday, 8 November 2009 14:28 (nine years ago) link

I like the message you get when you x post

call all destroyer, Sunday, 8 November 2009 20:30 (nine years ago) link

desired feature when you can be arsed to get around to it: local timestamping for logged-in users?

zing touch me I'm (sic), Wednesday, 11 November 2009 11:47 (nine years ago) link

Just weighing in to say I'm on iPhone 5S/12.2 and filmforum bookmarks just fine here.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:13 (four months ago) link

New version rolling out now, mainly small changes:
- There's a dark mode toggle in the homescreen
- You can now swipe a bookmark left to set it to the latest message, and right to delete it
- You can now share a post as a link, or open it in your browser (tap a message and hit the share button)
- The single message page now follows the font size set in settings, and looks a bit less 2007.
- Zing copes better if messages have corrupt or bad HTML in them, and lets you open the thread in Safari instead of crashing.
- The keyboard's now quite dark in dark mode

stet, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:56 (four months ago) link

Awesome! Have you looked at the rotate bug?

DJI, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:15 (four months ago) link

Yes, but haven't fixed it — it doesn't seem to be totally my fault, the tableview is doing something I can't quite explain but I might be able to work around it.

stet, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:17 (four months ago) link

thx, man!

DJI, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:23 (four months ago) link

as always, many thanks. it’s a great app anyway and those additions all seem really useful.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:40 (four months ago) link

All hail the Stet

calstars, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 23:35 (four months ago) link

Excellent update.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 18 April 2019 03:19 (four months ago) link

This is so good, first time using it and it’s great! Thanks stet!

gyac, Thursday, 18 April 2019 05:42 (four months ago) link

you left off the “post anyway” feature when xposting, stet, which i was pleased to see tho muscle memory meant i clicked out and posted again anyway obv.

Fizzles, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:00 (four months ago) link

Rats, so I did, and that was the hardest bit to do

stet, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:19 (four months ago) link

- You can now share a post as a link, or open it in your browser (tap a message and hit the share button)
- The single message page now follows the font size set in settings, and looks a bit less 2007.


thank you for adding these features!

beard papa, Thursday, 18 April 2019 15:07 (four months ago) link

Lovely update! Thanks stet

lefal junglist platton (wtev), Friday, 19 April 2019 10:03 (four months ago) link

Bookmarks have disappeared from Zing for me but I still see them on the web.

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 17:54 (three months ago) link

same here

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 18:37 (three months ago) link

Back now. Thanks?!

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:16 (three months ago) link

three weeks pass...

stet, I saw that you added a few versions back a little Zing link at the top of mobile versions. But it just goes to the main page. Is there any chance you could have the app open web links to the actual thread? This would be a great way of effectively adding a search function.

Naive Teen Idol, Sunday, 9 June 2019 14:00 (two months ago) link

that's a really good idea, yep

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 10:46 (two months ago) link

Where is that little Zing link again?

TS The Students vs. The Regents (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 10 June 2019 17:23 (two months ago) link

It appears when Apple decides it should, which is a bit opaque

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:35 (two months ago) link

Oh right. Can see it in safari but not in chrome
