Zing Touch: ILX now ON IPHONE (and ipod tooches too)

No it’s fair — this might be a feature just for me! What I find is I sometimes read a bookmark and it has something I want to check out later (like a video) or something I need to do (like investigate a bug) so I keep the bookmark where it is. But then I can’t see if the thread has updated.

I was going to add unread status balls but figured this would be better.

the good post you want to read is only rarely the very latest post, ftb the conversational gestalt of ilx so basically karl otm i think

i like this idea! or maybe, even just to add a little more information, a number to indicate the number of new posts since you last checked the bookmark. if there are two updated bookmarks, one with the 14 new posts and the other with 1, that provides useful information in a few different ways.

that's a p dece idea

still holding out for @ing people, which would create a link at the top of the page going straight to the post where you were @ed (or something)

stats cock vs status balls FITE

The only thing we need is search

Fuck all the newfangled nonsense. If you want to make ilx about stalking yourself & others, you gotta put the work in

four weeks pass...

Tried those suggestions but no joy.
Have you logged in and out on Zing too? If all else fails deleting and reinstalling should sort it


Been off board for a few weeks but tried this suggestion again and all good! Thanks stet.

Now just need to sort out the font size re the board descriptions. Seems to have become really cluttered.

been meaning to mention, I can see that it's a neat idea but I really don't like the preview. Any way to make that an option?

dan selzer, Saturday, 9 June 2018 11:43 (one year ago) link

It’s on the roadmap, coming in an upcoming release.

Jeff, Saturday, 9 June 2018 13:17 (one year ago) link

great, thanks.

Are you on iOS 10? That causes this - fixed in next release

stet, Saturday, 9 June 2018 22:58 (one year ago) link

I think so. Cheers. I'll update.

three months pass...

mine has the latest os and still looks like that fwiw (old phone tho)

sprout god (lag∞n), Monday, 17 September 2018 19:58 (ten months ago) link

I’ll push out a Zing update shortly now that iOS 12 is out

stet, Monday, 17 September 2018 20:26 (ten months ago) link

think my phone might just not be able to handle the latest os as im on 10.3 and now theres 12, whatevs its chill

sprout god (lag∞n), Monday, 17 September 2018 20:59 (ten months ago) link

i have a 5c i guess they cut me off at 10.3

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 19 September 2018 16:19 (ten months ago) link

i bought it refurbished off ebay for a hundo like a year ago and it works fine whatre u gonna do

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 19 September 2018 16:19 (ten months ago) link

the only thing thats bothered me is it doesnt make wifi calls might get an 5se lol

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 19 September 2018 16:21 (ten months ago) link

Did you ever get a chance to take a look at the bug where if you rotate the phone to landscape and back, the thread jumps back a bunch of posts?

DJI, Wednesday, 19 September 2018 17:27 (ten months ago) link

two weeks pass...

any chance we can get rid of the preview (or make it an option) soon? I just got hit with a Better Call Saul spoiler!

dan selzer, Thursday, 4 October 2018 17:51 (nine months ago) link

yes

and i continue to be hit on preview by certain prolific posters i have reluctantly blocked

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 4 October 2018 19:20 (nine months ago) link

This bugs me too. I will fix both!

stet, Thursday, 4 October 2018 21:35 (nine months ago) link

Sad!

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 4 October 2018 21:57 (nine months ago) link

Tracer otm
Thanks stet

Preview?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:02 (nine months ago) link

bookmarks in zing show a preview of the latest post in the thread underneath the thread title, takes up a lot of room and often contains spoilers.

Machine Gunk Jelly (Spottie), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:54 (nine months ago) link

ahhh. i dont use bookmarks.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:58 (nine months ago) link

inconceivable!

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 4 October 2018 23:59 (nine months ago) link

i mostly just rely on the dots! So on mobile ILX is kinda hard to navigate at all haha.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 5 October 2018 00:41 (nine months ago) link

Having SNA show up before / above bookmarks would be a massive improvement to this user’s experience

Stab my hinge, get hit (sic), Friday, 5 October 2018 00:50 (nine months ago) link

Not sure why but the “help me learn Japanese” thread will not load any answers at all on iOS 12. Everything else fine apart from the occasional lockup.

an incoherent crustacean (MatthewK), Saturday, 6 October 2018 13:01 (nine months ago) link

Same

calstars, Saturday, 6 October 2018 13:14 (nine months ago) link

my minor complaint is embedded twitter vids won’t play but I’ve found workarounds so it’s v v low priority

Clay, Saturday, 6 October 2018 18:38 (nine months ago) link

haha yeah at this point i think of that not as a bug but as just a particularity, a lovable quirk

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 6 October 2018 21:16 (nine months ago) link

two months pass...

Why doesn’t ILX on iphone/safari warn you that other people have posted when you hit submit post?

🦆🥣 (FlopsyDuck), Friday, 4 January 2019 21:37 (six months ago) link

I think that was put in because the OG Safari on Edge was so slow that you could get caught in xpost warnings forever on slow threads. Could probably take that out now.

stet, Saturday, 5 January 2019 01:39 (six months ago) link

New Zing version rolling out now: adds a preference for those snippets. Sorry it took so long!

stet, Monday, 7 January 2019 14:54 (six months ago) link

thank you

dan selzer, Monday, 7 January 2019 17:38 (six months ago) link

So nice thanks!

three months pass...

no idea why, but the recently revived Prodigy thread refused to open for me on zing...

lefal junglist platton (wtev), Saturday, 13 April 2019 16:05 (three months ago) link

Same here

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Saturday, 13 April 2019 16:12 (three months ago) link

There’s some old-ILX HTML in there somewhere that’s giving Zing pause
