Challops:I don’t like how the lines have disappeared between threads in dark mode. Bring back the lines or at least alternate background colors like answers do (in both modes). I don’t understand the HUGE type announcing the board / thread title (or the app) at the top of each screen? It doesn’t need to be so big. Also, when I hit filter threads, the field floats behind the huge type and it’s annoying.

challops accepted. Some of this is work in progress -- filter threads will be replaced by thread search soon, and the huge type problem is an iOS 13 change that's half-finished (because I realised we have to keep iOS 12 support for the older phones).
Lines on threads is a good shout, I'll try and put those back. Confess I just got tired of slogging at Search code and felt it was good enough to get out.

Couple more challops:1. The orientation bug where Zing jumps back a bunch of posts if you rotate it back and forth is still there.2. Some kind of memory leaks with YouTube and maybe Twitter. If you start a YouTube video and then click back, the video never gets shut down entirely and you continue to hear audio until you kill the app. Maybe embeds aren’t being killed correctly?

YESSSSSSSSSSSstet, you are the best. Seriously.

cosign with DJI - also if you tap a Twitter post on e.g. the image, any linked video won't link correctly, but if you tap on the date of the post, it loads correctly and you can tap through to the video or images linked.A small thing too - when shifting day-to-night and vice versa using standard type appearance, the big headlines stay in the colour of the old mode (i.e. they stay white, on a light background, or black on a dark background). If it was possible for Zing to switch to night mode when the phone does so, that would be awesome, but maybe break things for folks not on iOS 13.Offered only in the spirit of wanting to help, not complaint - it's a great app!

As others have said, I'd have been happy to pay for this upgrade.

Challops version going to Apple, fixing:- Lines are back between messages- Orientation bug is fixed at last- Twitter videos now play inside the message view(!) - And stop playing when you leave the view
I can't fix the dark/light switch not changing the headlines without dropping iOS 12 support (as far as I can tell) and there are way too many people still not on iOS 13 yet.

Are pics supposed to autoload? I see little picture frames that I have to click on.

twitter videos playing within zing is a very exciting development

4.1 is rolling out now with all those fixes above, plus you can now sort search results and search within just one board.
(Challops: you can no longer filter just the threads on a New Answers, but that'll come back)

Very very slick update stet, the attention to detail is impressive
― an incoherent crustacean (MatthewK), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 05:43 (five days ago) link
Great job - justr a minor thing: any way to reinstate the "XX hours/days ago" time stamp beneath posts?
― licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 09:50 (five days ago) link
Yes, it’s going to be a setting in the next version

a niggle - occasionally when composing, dragging the cursor to the beginning of the post, or maybe just elsewhere in the compose window, erases all the text!
― Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 11 December 2019 12:17 (four days ago) link
Wow, I’ve never seen that! Does a double tap with three fingers and pressing the undo arrow (on iOS 13) or shaking (on iOS 12) bring it back?
― stet, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:06 (four days ago) link
just tried and no. can be hard to replicate but try swiping with one finger fairly quickly pretty much anywhere in the compose window after entering some text.
― Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:13 (four days ago) link
Got it! It doesn’t erase the text for me but it does make the keyboard vanish. I’ll investigate
― stet, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:15 (four days ago) link
Sorry to report I’m running into some problems in the new version:During search the screen goes blank when entering the search term. Search results show up, but won’t link through when selected. It then gets stuck on the results screen for ages, with no apparent way out, making the app temporarily unusable.
Also, embedded tweets won’t link through to the source tweet on Twitter directly in many (most?) cases, unlike before.
I’m on iOS 12, as noted upthread.

What device are you using, breastcrawl? I'll take a look
I've also confirmed there's a bug with polls which means you can't vote for an option - fixing now

Hey Stet in night mode the text in the search box comes up black so it’s invisible. It worked fine, just had to type carefully.
