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.

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.

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

three weeks pass...

new version up now, should fix yr problem

stet, Tuesday, 9 February 2010 23:40 (eleven years ago) link

I updated and now bookmarks are not working. Also, I can't post at all, it says for unknown reasons.

Jeff, Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:32 (eleven years ago) link

Sounds like the cache is corrupted: open the accounts pane (gear icon on home screen) and log in again to clear them all. If that doesn't work, reinstalling definitely should. (Nothing's changed in bookmarks, or posting)

stet, Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:37 (eleven years ago) link

Seems to have worked. Thanks!

Jeff, Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:37 (eleven years ago) link

phew! sorry bout that.

iPad version coming soon???

Jeff, Friday, 2 April 2010 15:56 (eleven years ago) link

I had a play with one, but it looks weird -- and ILX in Safari on the iPad is pretty top. Will have a look again when I actually get an iPad.

stet, Friday, 2 April 2010 19:14 (eleven years ago) link

four weeks pass...

Quick question: if I delete Zing Touch and then download it again, will I have to pay for it again?

I ask because something went horribly wrong with it a few weeks ago, and since no one else has mentioned it, I'm assuming it's something with my phone and I need to reinstall it. All my bookmarks were deleted, and whenever I try to add a new one, the app crashes. Also, it won't let me post new messages.

I'll give it a shot right now, thanks!

biologically wrong (Z S), Friday, 30 April 2010 00:57 (eleven years ago) link

to answer the other question, as long as you make the 'purchase' from the same account you originally bought it with, you won't be charged again

I Think Ur a Viking (dyao), Friday, 30 April 2010 00:58 (eleven years ago) link

fixed, thanks again!

The one problem I have with it is that 77 doesn't show up in the list of boards. (Yes, I am a member. )

Christine Green Leafy Dragon Indigo, Friday, 30 April 2010 04:20 (eleven years ago) link

Try logging in again (same procedure as above). The board list is saved to make startup quicker, so it doesn't notice new boards being added to your account very often.

stet, Friday, 30 April 2010 10:18 (eleven years ago) link

That worked. Thanks.

Christine Green Leafy Dragon Indigo, Friday, 30 April 2010 13:36 (eleven years ago) link

i just downloaded this. so much better than in safari BUT whenever i bookmark it crashes (closes and returns to iphone app page) and doesn't save the bookmark. someone might have mentioned this already but this thread tl;dr.

I may be missing something obvious, but can you create topics using the app?

Jeff, Sunday, 2 May 2010 06:36 (eleven years ago) link

sunny successor: Do you have traditional bookmarking set? The app needs to use the new-style bookmarks, and might be crashing if it doesn't find them. To check, go into Preferences (on the site itself) and make sure "Use traditional bookmarks" is *not* ticked.

Jeff: Not yet -- that and search are my next big to-dos after multitasking (which is just about done)

stet, Sunday, 2 May 2010 10:16 (eleven years ago) link

stet, not zing related but figured this thread has your attention :) is there any easy way to incorporate spoiler support for ilx (e.g. highlight text to reveal, otherwise it's a block of black chars)

cozen, Sunday, 2 May 2010 21:25 (eleven years ago) link

Hey that's a great idea. Will think.

stet, Monday, 3 May 2010 11:26 (eleven years ago) link

stet i did indeed have trad bmking set. ill try it again today/. thanks!!

no more springs no more summers no more falls (sunny successor), Monday, 3 May 2010 12:51 (eleven years ago) link

....but finish the new topics feature first. (I almost called this the "ask a question" feature. I've been on ILX way too long. ) That's the really important thing.

Anyone out there running iOS 4.0 fancy being a beta tester?

stet, Monday, 14 June 2010 20:31 (eleven years ago) link

i have a bug with mine recently where i can't post anything, it says "it is a mystery" fail message.

I see what this is (Local Garda), Monday, 14 June 2010 20:34 (eleven years ago) link

It'll be the cache; I don't know what's causing it but I'll have a look just now.

To fix: Press the gear icon on the home page, and then press login.

stet, Monday, 14 June 2010 20:41 (eleven years ago) link

Sorry, quick question -- is tere a search feature in this? If so, I can't find it. Other than that, love it.

Any plans for an Android app, Stet? Way more Androids than iPhones in the UK (although admittedly these stats don't take into account the iPod Touch, or the probability that ILX users skew Apple-wards).

Background Zombie (CharlieNo4), Saturday, 19 June 2010 10:10 (eleven years ago) link

Sunny: that feature's in there, sort-of: hit "edit" on the home screen and delete the boards you don't care about and it'll hide them from SNA too. (Do you just want to hide from SNA and still keep them on the list?)

Android: Ken C was talking about looking at doing one. I'm probably not: don't have one and don't know how to code for it!

stet, Saturday, 19 June 2010 12:23 (eleven years ago) link

Interesting. Visits to ILX via mobiles in last two weeks (doesn't include Zing visits)
1. iPhone 8,162
2. iPod 2,516
3. Android 1,968
4. iPad 1,185
5. BlackBerry 1,036

Have you got a link for this one? It sounds wrong to me.

JimD, Saturday, 19 June 2010 16:55 (eleven years ago) link

some numbers here, mostly US --- http://stuff.tv/news/By-numbers-Android-vs-iPhone/14488/

1 in 5 – ratio of new smartphones sold on contract in the UK that use Android, according to GfK.
