would it be uncouth to post our wishlists of features?

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 17 December 2009 10:55 (eleven years ago) link

not if it's anything like your save SMS DRAFTS feature for the iphone

when the screen changes orientation, you move to a difft place in the thread, sort of annoying. that's the only new thing I guess.

three weeks pass...

Am still working on this. Some things will take longer (offline, saving your place), but in the meantime I've just sent v1.5 to Apple, so it should be with you, er ...

Release notes:
NEW
- Full poll support: Read and vote in open polls; see results of closed polls
- You can now re-order and delete boards.
- Deleted boards are hidden from Site New Answers (to restore to defaults, just log in again)
- Compose posts with the landscape keyboard
- Timezone support. Thread, poll and message timestamps appear in your local timezone.
- New buttons for all BBCode tags, including smart completion of images and web links.

UPDATES
- Vastly faster bookmarking
- Much faster startup and login times
- Better quoting of messages for reply
- Better account checking in the login screen

FIXES
- Site icons are now loaded properly
- Threads with very old ilxor.com HTML now load properly
- Thread display keeps your place after rotation
- Thread status display updates properly after visting a nested thread
- Thread scrolls to correct place of permalinked post, if possible

oh yeah, the image and web links thing: if you have an image URL on the pasteboard and hit the image button, it'll automatically be filled out. If you have a URL on the pasteboard and hit the Link button, it'll fill out the long-style URL bbcode and leave space for your title. Otherwise, both just put in the simple tags.

exploding angel vagina (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 11 January 2010 13:40 (eleven years ago) link

Blimey that was fast. Approved by Apple; should be on the store shortly.

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 20:23 (eleven years ago) link

wtf is lovecalc

sir ilx-a-lot (cutty), Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:29 (eleven years ago) link

bug report:

in landscape mode---
* if posting from very bottom of thread, get this weird thing where i can't see what i'm typing
* if posting from mid-thread, it's no problem but there's no bar sayin italics/bold/more

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:32 (eleven years ago) link

Could there be a better way to signify which threads are polls? I know it says poll there, but it all just blends in with the rest of the text.

Jeff, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:38 (eleven years ago) link

Thanks guys!

Gbx: what do you mean about posting from the bottom? I can't make it do what you're saying. I have an idea what it could be though, I'll change it and it see if it fixes it for you.

The buttons: yeah, I don't know where to put them! If they're in a bar you only get one line of text, which is crap. You're not allowed put extra buttons in the navbar at the top, either. Am open to ideas...

(cutty: lol app of shame (every iPhone dev I know has one) TheLovecalc was the first app I ever wrote for the Mac, when I was 13 and thought you could impress girls with computers. So I made it my first iPhone app to try out the store and ads etc.)

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:41 (eleven years ago) link

Jeff: yeah, I could add a poll badge to the thread line (like the favicon on the boards page), would that be enough? Might make that a pref though.

bnw, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:47 (eleven years ago) link

from the bottom: if i scroll the thread all the way to the last post, and hit the box in the upper right hand corner to post, the posting box is different from what i get if i hit the button half way down the thread

Cool

tehresa, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:53 (eleven years ago) link

Are you reading in horizontal mode, or turning it once the post box opens? Xp

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:54 (eleven years ago) link

reading first

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:55 (eleven years ago) link

You know the ad stats on lovecalc are scary. Some people are opening it hundreds of times a day

Xp how many lines of text can you see when the box opens fucked up? (really sorry you're seeing this btw, will try to fix asap if I can work out what it is)

stet, Tuesday, 12 January 2010 23:56 (eleven years ago) link

ok weird it shows what looks to be like two lines of text but when i type nothing shows up. UNLESS: i switch to normal view, at which point the italic/bold/more bar disappears completely. THEN, if i switch back to landscape, the cursor is in the right spot, and i can see what i'm typing

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:01 (eleven years ago) link

however: even tho it doesn't show what i'm typing, it works (cf my post upthread "I'm posting sideways")

What model iPhone/iPod is this?

stet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:03 (eleven years ago) link

3gs

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:09 (eleven years ago) link

ok totally baffling now: landscape presents w/o italic bar and vertical makes it show up.

wish I could be more helpful!

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:12 (eleven years ago) link

ok closing in: behavior changes after hittig the bookmark button!

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:15 (eleven years ago) link

stet, thanks for the update!

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:16 (eleven years ago) link

Same as mine. I think I know what the problem is, though: it's to do with it checking what the phone's orientation is.

It sounds like for some reason your accelerometer isn't always reporting which way up your phone is, it's just reporting the changes. (If i'm right, scrolling to the bottom in portrait, opening the compose window and then turning to landscape should work right)

I'll try and write around it.

Xp: yeah the italic bar only shows up in portrait mode (no room in landscape).

stet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:17 (eleven years ago) link

ah, that's the thing. when I hit BM and then open up a response window in landscape, the italic bar IS there and it obscures what I'm writing.

everybody's into weirdness right now (gbx), Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:20 (eleven years ago) link

Ah! That should never happen! WTF? It might be worth trying to reinstall it from the store (you won't get charged again), because that's well wrong.

stet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 00:23 (eleven years ago) link

took a pic 4 u

Sorry if this has been asked, but how do I get rid of a bookmark accidentally set on a thread I'm not interested in following? Otherwise completely love Zing and hope you enjoyed a pint stet.

tobo73, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 02:14 (eleven years ago) link

Cheers! If you hit the "edit" button on the top right of the start screen, a delete button will appear next to the bookmarks. You can also just swipe right-to-left on the bookmark you want to delete.

stet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010 02:30 (eleven years ago) link

Aha! I can make it happen too if I lie the iPhone flat. Right, I'll fix this tonight. Cheers gbx
