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.

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

amazing!!

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.

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

Stellar.

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koogs: There's some slightly out-of-date-but-mostly-right screenshots in this post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

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 (ten years ago) link

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

just spotted a bookmarking bug too. Will fix

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

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

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

I like the message you get when you x post

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

another request -

to stay where u were when u quit the app, instead of goin back to the list of boards

regardless - what a terrific program!!

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 11:49 (ten years ago) link

^ yes, the latter

zing touch me I'm (sic), Wednesday, 11 November 2009 12:00 (ten years ago) link

hello when will android version come out pls?

ken 'a shaved finn' c (ken c), Wednesday, 11 November 2009 12:36 (ten years ago) link

im embarrassed at how rad i find this app, i mean, i dont want to admit how great it is to use ilx on my iphone, but, you know.

any chance we could get archiving of bookmarks for offline browsing?

max, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 13:36 (ten years ago) link

you could just use instapaper for all yr offline bookmarkin needs - i find myself using it more than safari these days

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 13:38 (ten years ago) link

Tracer: does it need to save whereever you are, or can it just remember if you're reading a thread or in the middle of compose. I've been trying to save state, but it's a bit tricky as the server can completely change between launches, and threads that were there have dropped off new answers.

Archiving of bookmarks is a good idea actually -- then you could bookmark a post before getting on the subway or w/e, and the whole thing'd be there on the phone. Or I could add in Instapaper integration.

stet, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 14:15 (ten years 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 (one week ago) link

YESSSSSSSSSSS

stet, you are the best. Seriously.

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

(Thanks for being lovely, everyone)

stet, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:54 (five days ago) link

Thank you stet!

DJI, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:59 (five days 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 (five days ago) link

twitter videos playing within zing is a very exciting development

call all destroyer, Thursday, 5 December 2019 01:31 (five days ago) link

right. won’t miss the workaround for that

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

Yes @CowArt

DJI, Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:27 (five days ago) link

stet if you wanna make a gofundme or a Patreon I'm there

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 (yesterday) link

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