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!!

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koogs: There's some slightly out-of-date-but-mostly-right screenshots in this post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

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

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 (ten years ago) link

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 (ten years ago) link

oh, within zing of course, duh

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 15:12 (ten years ago) link

id rather have a built-in archiving feature in zing

max, Wednesday, 11 November 2009 15:42 (ten years ago) link

that seems simpler

this kind of changes the way i look at ILX even. it's more like twitter now.

is that a good thing? RT @cutty this kind of changes the way i look at ILX even. it's more like twitter now.

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
