freaky -- I sent the new version to Apple last night. Includes multitasking and a ton of bug fixes, including for the poll crash (in the meantime Clay you can probably fix that by deleting and reinstalling).

Other things:
- Delete button: yeh, will add a warning to that
- Close button: that needs to be there for UI guideline reasons, sry.
- Search in page: Yeah, I really want this too, it's next.

hey stet zing is great but it can be pretty crashy - usually after i update a bookmark (or post) and go back to the browsing screen

the milagro-beanfield war criminal (s1ocki), Monday, 20 September 2010 11:58 (eleven years ago) link

that doesn't sound right. can you email me your crash logs and I'll take a look?

stet, Monday, 20 September 2010 13:57 (eleven years ago) link

no stability issues here - I'd have comments on the Mac app and on how much I'd like to see an iPad app, but the iphone version works great for me

mine is a bit crashy (on xposts, sometimes on opening threads) but totally liveable-with, i still love using it.

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 14:25 (eleven years ago) link

it never crashes for me. still would LOVE to be able to select which boards show threads in site new answers.

Dudes I still can't figure out how to do polls. Is it only on Zing Touch and not on Zing Lite?

sunny, i think you can do that? i appear to have done that, anyway - i think by swiping right on the boards you don't want, on the opening-screen list of boards, you can delete them from your sna as well as from the list of boards that show on the opening screen?

(i would test this but i don't know how to bring a board back once deleted)

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 16:53 (eleven years ago) link

I can't swipe right OR left on any screen!

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:13 (eleven years ago) link

do you have an edit button?

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:22 (eleven years ago) link

Stevie, if you swipe left (OR right, IME) on the bookmark, a red button that says "DELETE" should appear.

and if you hit 'login' on the settings page it resets to all-the-boards

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:36 (eleven years ago) link

as i just discovered

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:38 (eleven years ago) link

Where's the edit button? I have a gear in the lower right corner. Oh yes I can swipe on the bookmark but I don't want to delete any of them.

I just want to view polls. Maybe vote too.

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:38 (eleven years ago) link

edit button is top right for me (but it won't help w anything but deleting boards/bookmarks you don't want).

stevie, when you go to a poll thread, does nothing happen when you tap the top post that says 'x poll options'? do other posts open when you tap them (like e.g. posts w images in)?

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:44 (eleven years ago) link

When I tap the OP it just lists the OP w/ no poll options. Images come up and all though when they're there

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:47 (eleven years ago) link

this is how it works for me:
click the thread with the poll.
the first "message" should say something like "3 poll options". click it.
the next screen will list the poll options. click the one you want to select.

huh. maybe it is a touch-v-lite thing?

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:49 (eleven years ago) link

sweet damn, c sharp. i was able to get rid of those boards. not an i love music post in sight. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw him in convulsive throws I said "I'll have one of those" (sunny successor), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:51 (eleven years ago) link

I tried what you said to do, sunny, and the options do not show up for me. I always figured that polls were not part of Zing Touch.

dumplings (Jesse), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:52 (eleven years ago) link

oh I never see x poll options or anything. I am running 1.0 Lite btw

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:53 (eleven years ago) link

fuck i want DUMPLINGS!

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:54 (eleven years ago) link

also wtf why did DUMPLINGS! just capitalize itself

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:54 (eleven years ago) link

just buy the full version dudes

I saw him in convulsive throws I said "I'll have one of those" (sunny successor), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:54 (eleven years ago) link

oh no i have further contributed to the depopulation of ilm!!

looking upthread the same update that lets ppl take boards out of SNA (not just off the opening screen) is the update that allows ppl to view and vote in polls so if you can do one you should be able to do t'other? maybe lite never got that update?

camphor jars (c sharp major), Monday, 20 September 2010 17:56 (eleven years ago) link

I thought I bought the full version....maybe not. I do not know.

DUMPLINGS!

dumplings (Jesse), Monday, 20 September 2010 18:00 (eleven years ago) link

why did you write DUMPLINGS!, Stevie D? DUMPLINGS! automatically becomes upper case and !

i wonder what this does DUMPLINGS!!

dumplings (Jesse), Monday, 20 September 2010 18:01 (eleven years ago) link

because your username is d u m p l i n g s and I got a mad craving

omg is it rly tru r u srly a woodpecker taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap (Stevie D), Monday, 20 September 2010 18:07 (eleven years ago) link

1.0 didn't have poll support -- you need to update! I think both lite and full should have polls now; they definitely do in the next release.

stet, Monday, 20 September 2010 19:42 (eleven years ago) link

Is this the thread where we talk about the Bai Ling eats fetuses classic DUMPLINGS!?

Fig On A Plate Cart (Alex in SF), Monday, 20 September 2010 19:52 (eleven years ago) link

yes

I saw him in convulsive throws I said "I'll have one of those" (sunny successor), Monday, 20 September 2010 21:52 (eleven years ago) link

that doesn't sound right. can you email me your crash logs and I'll take a look?

how do i shot logs

the milagro-beanfield war criminal (s1ocki), Monday, 20 September 2010 23:46 (eleven years ago) link

def. dont have polls in lite and updating doesn't add them

jeff, Tuesday, 21 September 2010 00:18 (eleven years ago) link

hey stet zing is awesome

it crashes for me on occasion but no more than any other great app. obv, being able to start threads and use a search function would be great, but jumping over to safari for that isn't too hard.

my number one request/ complaint however is this:

-if you have a thread bookmarked on a message that is more than 100 posts from the end of the thread, zing will only take you to the last 100 posts, and not to your bookmarked post.

obv not a problem that comes up too much, but it would be nice to have fixed in an update.

New feature: improved clusterfuck thread management

Socrates, you asshole (Z S), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 20:45 (eleven years ago) link

Not really complaining, but one minor glitch: occasionally when I touch a thread, it just instantly closes down and I'm back on the iPhone home screen. As crashes go, it's not that inconvenient or frustrating (like a freeze-up or time-out would be).

dumplings (Jesse), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 20:57 (eleven years ago) link

i get that a lot

jeff, Wednesday, 22 September 2010 20:59 (eleven years ago) link

That's actually quite a hard one, Grady. Will have a think.

Crashes: If you sync with iTunes, you'll find crash logs in these folders:
Mac OS X : ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/<DEVICE_NAME>
Windows Vista: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>

Look in that folder, find the ones with "Zing" in the title, and fire 'em off to stet @ ilxor and i'll take a look. Lots of them likely to be fixed in the latest update, though.

stet, Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:19 (eleven years ago) link

I'm...wondering...was there a problem with using a normal browser via the iphone or similar device? I never had a smart phone before now but this droid thing seems to do okay with ILX although it doesn't remember where I left off a long thread and return me to my exit point. But other than that, it seems v functional.

I've got ten bucks. SURPRISE ME. (Laurel), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:22 (eleven years ago) link

IIRC this whole thing came about because stet was messing around with Apple application development and made an ILX reader as a test application, which he then converted into an iPhone app

bang (HI DERE), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:23 (eleven years ago) link

do you use bookmarks Laurel? Zing handles bookmarks much much better than the phone's browser ime - on the iphone anyway.

Volvo Twilight (p-dog), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:26 (eleven years ago) link

really like Zing btw stet - cheers for making it. Would second the comment about only being able to load up clusterfuck threads in groups of 100s. don't bother if it's too difficult for you tho - i'd much prefer access to the search functions if poss.

Volvo Twilight (p-dog), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:29 (eleven years ago) link

Don't use bookmarks, no. Never understood what they were for, basically. I am not tech-y like at all.

It's so that when yr fave threads get updated, you can 1)see that there are new posts (useful for when you haven't been ilx-ing for a while and a thread you're interested in has a new post or posts but is sunk beneath many other threads), and 2) takes you directly to where you left off in reading the thread

Socrates, you asshole (Z S), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:39 (eleven years ago) link

^

markers, Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:40 (eleven years ago) link

Basically, just go to your fave thread and bookmark the most recent message. Next time someone posts to that thread you'll see how it works. "try it you'll like it", etc

Socrates, you asshole (Z S), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 21:41 (eleven years ago) link

I didn't use bookmarks until Zing, but now I use them all the time. Dark theme rules.
