It really is becoming vestigial isn’t it? (Everywhere, not just here) I think possibility of confusion with links must have done for it. Fine. Farewell, underline

Adios, muchacho

Is this the thread for thread-specific technical issues? Rolling Classical 2020 can’t be loaded in Zing, saying:

There are some old or corrupted messages in this thread which zing can’t read

Should be fixed, thanks!

Because the Zing icon looked a bit like a MAGA cap, I’ve taken to calling it Hat FM in tribute to the UK Office.

It’s better than a MAGA hat, it’s a hipster fucker trucker hat.

Hi, can’t find it anywhere, but I’m having triuble with Zing— none of my bookmarks are working, tho I’m logged in and so forth. It appears to be attempting to load them but then I get the ! inside a triangle symbol. Any help appreciated!

I had that. Logging out of Zing and in again helped, though it still doesn’t seem to be syncing bookmarks between Zing and web as reliably as it was.

Alba, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:21 (two years ago) link

ah okay. tried that once to no avail but will try again. merci!

we need outrage! we need dicks!! (the table is the table), Tuesday, 10 May 2022 17:36 (two years ago) link

same thing. i even uninstalled and re-installed :/

Ugh, sorry! is this still happening? I'll take a look

stet, Thursday, 19 May 2022 14:56 (two years ago) link

stet, it resolved itself on its own, without any signing out or uninstalling etc. works fine now! not sure what the issue was. thank you, tho!

has zing been delisted from the apple app store? just tried to install zing ON (new) IPHONE and can’t seem to find it anymore

Oh that’s strange, not showing for me either.

here you go, muttonchops Yaz (gyac), Thursday, 9 February 2023 19:04 (one year ago) link

same here. funnily enough I had a problem with the app some time last month and removed it. it was still in the store then or I wouldn’t be here now (perish the thought)

i saw mommy kissing twink henry kissinger (breastcrawl), Thursday, 9 February 2023 19:20 (one year ago) link

Sorry about that – I need to pay Apple yearly to stay on the store, and they had an expired credit card on file. Should be back shortly!

stet, Monday, 13 February 2023 13:24 (one year ago) link

thanks stet!

Not exactly urgent, but I am finding that the latest version of this app crashes when I am reading a message and tilt it to landscape. I’m on iOS 16.3.1.

Naive Teen Idol, Wednesday, 19 April 2023 21:59 (one year ago) link

It’s been like that for years, for me.

Any chance the dark mode could be tied to the system setting? The number of phones without that feature must be pretty small now.

Love this app and have a feature request:
In-app toggle to lock orientation - I don't think I'll ever use landscape mode on my phone.

I've put it on the list, but while you wait this is pretty easy to automate with Shortcuts. Just make a new Automation that sets orientation lock on every time Zing opens (and another one that disables it when Zing closes). Ok now I type it out that sounds cumbersome, but it's pretty easy!

Dear stet, I thought I had asked about this but I can’t see that I did in any of the zing threads so ignore me if I’ve brought it up before and you said no.

Is there any chance of a function to hide certain thread titles from sna? If not no problem, but not sure how doable it would be

mojo dojo casas house (gyac), Thursday, 4 January 2024 20:51 (six months ago) link

I have in fact built this - but to make room for a button to do it, I then did the thing you’re supposed to not do and bundled it with another change (an in-line composer) which is turning out to be bloody tricky and is making the whole thing take ages. I’ll try and hurry up.

stet, Friday, 5 January 2024 00:05 (six months ago) link

Oh seriously don’t rush on my account, even knowing it’s a possibility is cool af. Thank you for replying!

Has this 24 hour time stamp thing always been there? I thought it was just the date

calstars, Sunday, 10 March 2024 23:40 (four months ago) link

Been there a good while, but I'm only just realising that this is not at all helpful for US folks. I'll see if I can localise it

stet, Monday, 11 March 2024 14:41 (four months ago) link

Probably just personal preference, but I'd love the dark mode to use actual black as the background. Sometimes I read ILX when I can't sleep and it would be great to emit less light and not disturb my partner. I already have brightness at the lowest and even the "darken white point" accessibility setting engaged.

assert (matttkkkk), Monday, 11 March 2024 22:23 (four months ago) link

What would be great is if it could be dynamic based on system settings…

calstars, Monday, 11 March 2024 22:44 (four months ago) link

I’m in the US and 24 hour timestamps are fine

ɥɯ ︵ (°□°) (mh), Monday, 11 March 2024 22:48 (four months ago) link

New build with Apple, it has all these things and more!

stet, Monday, 18 March 2024 00:30 (four months ago) link

Oh, it doesn’t have the orientation lock, I forgot about that

stet, Monday, 18 March 2024 00:30 (four months ago) link

stet you are a gem. Could it be a paid app or have in-app purchase to say thanks?

assert (matttkkkk), Monday, 18 March 2024 00:34 (four months ago) link

I'll see if I can localise it

Can you please change it back, tia

bae (sic), Monday, 18 March 2024 00:37 (four months ago) link

It now works with whatever your “Use 24-hour clock” setting is in system settings, it’s not based on where you are.

stet, Monday, 18 March 2024 00:39 (four months ago) link

ok but still

bae (sic), Monday, 18 March 2024 01:01 (four months ago) link

whoa big moves. stet this is brilliant!
