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.

Ah of course. Going blind is me.

Another pint from me, raa!

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

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.

I have posted a review.

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) Permalink

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.

Stellar.

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

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) Permalink

stet this is awesome, thanks so much man!

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

Pint from me! Thank you!

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

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koogs: There's some slightly out-of-date-but-mostly-right screenshots in this post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

Ace. :)

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

ok this is pretty amazing -- fantastic work!

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

Holy lol at the screenshots

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

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) Permalink

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) Permalink

An image browser would be fantastic!

schwantz, Saturday, 7 November 2009 21:51 (nine years ago) Permalink

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.

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) Permalink

feature request: landscape keyboard! also more bb code tags

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

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) Permalink

just spotted a bookmarking bug too. Will fix

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

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) Permalink

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

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

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) Permalink

I like the message you get when you x post

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

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) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

^ yes, the latter

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

hello when will android version come out pls?

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

exactly as it was wd be ideal but just remembering what thread you were reading wd be almost as great

yes, exactly.

max, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 14:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

does instapaper even need integration? i just hit the "read later" bookmark in firefox and BILL VIOLA this thread is there

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 15:12 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (two months ago) Permalink

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

stet, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:19 (two months ago) Permalink

- 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 (two months ago) Permalink

Lovely update! Thanks stet

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

same here

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 18:37 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Back now. Thanks?!

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:16 (four weeks ago) Permalink

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 (one week ago) Permalink

that's a really good idea, yep

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 10:46 (one week ago) Permalink

Where is that little Zing link again?

TS The Students vs. The Regents (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 10 June 2019 17:23 (one week ago) Permalink

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

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:35 (one week ago) Permalink

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