Finally ante'd up. Since I've been less active on ILX I waited. Now I see that Zing will bring me back. Damn you Stet!

Oh yeah, missed that one. Is it something a lot of people are interested in? Haven't felt the need yet, really.

I don't think an ipad version is necessary - it's got enough screen that web ILX runs just fine.

Web ilx does work fine but something a la Reeder for ilx would be fantastic

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Wednesday, 1 December 2010 07:18 (eleven years ago) link

iPad app would be preferable to the web version.

Jeff, Wednesday, 1 December 2010 13:20 (eleven years ago) link

Part of what makes ilx ilx is the fact that it's simple and functionally bare. Zing is good because it does what it needs to do. As baader said the std we site is fine on an iPad, but it's always been tricky on an iPhone screen.

'we site'?

Having spunked a UI lecture on you lot I would now like to request a feature. When viewing bookmarks and threads, display the name of the forum to which the threads belong. Ta.

bought this for the iPhone a while back. can I also download it to my iPad? every time I try, it looks as if I will have to rebuy it. not sure if this is the case or if apple's store is just goofed up. please help. urgent.

sometimes it looks like that, but then u do it and it says 'oh wait u dont have to pay' after u click ok

There's no + sign next to the price i.e. it's not listed as a universal app so yeah, will probably charge you twice. stet?

btw weird to note I made it to an app store screenshot and am therefore famous.

aa (Schlafsack), Wednesday, 1 December 2010 23:23 (eleven years ago) link

It won't charge you twice, if you have the iPad assigned to the same iTunes account. Alternately just hook the iPad up to iTunes and sync the app that way.

Jeff, Thursday, 2 December 2010 02:24 (eleven years ago) link

I think ILX is fine on safari on the iPad

here's no + sign next to the price i.e. it's not listed as a universal app so yeah, will probably charge you twice. stet?

No, that just means there isn't any iPad code in the app -- if you download it you won't get charged again, but it just runs in the iPhone simulator.

I'll have a play with an iPad version later see what's what. I quite like the Tweetie interface now it's improved, but that smells like a ton of work.

hey stet: I have an idea that might work for everyone asking for a way to load image threads.

you know how in zing you can tap on each individual post to see it on it's own? what if that view had forward and back arrows so I could just tap through to the next image in an image thread, instead of going back to the thread, tapping on the next image post, letting that load, etc.

?

that is v good idea xp

stet, Tuesday, 7 December 2010 17:39 (eleven years ago) link

Zing isn't letting me post at this point -- ever since the upgrade, I think. I can read everything okay, but each attempt to post on a thread gives me the 'it is a mystery' dialogue box.

Maybe zing has become self-aware and is trying to eliminate it's closest rival

Ned you probably got banned. :-(

Alack.

You can thank joygoat for that, BTW.

Cache problem ned: log in again. If the change doesn't stick, just reinstall from app store (you won't be charged again) and it should do it this time.

Q: did you change your password recently? I know there are bugs in that.

stet, Tuesday, 7 December 2010 19:26 (eleven years ago) link

if so what did you change it to (important)

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 7 December 2010 19:28 (eleven years ago) link

Anyway that post was from Zing and worked just fine so problem solved. Now to find to Sarah Connor etc.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 7 December 2010 19:28 (eleven years ago) link

welcome back, Ned.

shirley summistake (s1ocki), Tuesday, 7 December 2010 19:58 (eleven years ago) link

just bought the iPhone version; thanks for dropping the price into the impulse-buy zone (and for all yr hard work on this project too I guess)! would love universal support but I can understand if it's not a priority (although I am heartened by your enthusiasm for the Tweetie interface upthread).

Preventing posting of duplicate messages would be a nice addition sometime (or I could develop some self-control and patience and not hit the Post button over and over if it takes more than a moment to post...)

Is that Glenn Danzig or Tommy Wiseau? (Jesse), Monday, 13 December 2010 05:52 (eleven years ago) link

Doesn't the post button grey out for you once it's been hit?

Madchen, Tuesday, 14 December 2010 11:38 (eleven years ago) link

zing touch has been very wonky for me lately. huge long pauses in posting, a couple weird error messages (one that goes by so fast i can't remember it, something about "new style" of messages?), frequently URLs won't open either

tickle me imo (s1ocki), Tuesday, 14 December 2010 13:35 (eleven years ago) link

It does grey out. But besides my frantic, impatient repeated pushing the Post button, there was at least one inexplicable triple post, perhaps due to a twitchy thumb.

Is that Glenn Danzig or Tommy Wiseau? (Jesse), Tuesday, 14 December 2010 15:44 (eleven years ago) link

That error message about the old-style bookmarks comes up when the connection drops out. I suspect the error text is just wrong.

I see this too and am on it. I haven't changed in anything in the relevant bits, so I'm guessing it's iOS 4.2. That bookmark error is actually supposed to be a suggestion -- the idea is that it comes up when bookmarking fails and suggests you might try double-checking the setting in preferences, but there wasn't enough space to make it clear. Am rewriting all that code just now anyway for increased betterness.

(I also see the huge long pauses in posting in Chrome on ILX sometimes too. Wonder if they're related. (I use Google networking code)).

weird - chrome working fine for me

This happens when you quote a message that contains a picture:

Image goes missing, author is embarrassed, undergoes years of psychotherapy, ultimately dies alone in a shack atop a cold windy mountain.
