Good way to read the site on phones, but has some character rendering issues This app is a nice way to read TV Tropes on the go. The text is legible, images load well, and being able to read articles offline are nice. However, I found out that certain characters on the original pages, like ellipses, completely fail to render in the app. I would like for characters like these to be supported in this app. (Edit: I found out that TV Tropes' em dashes, which are rendered from two hyphens in the source text, are actually rendered properly in the app, but ellipses are still not.)
Still Awesome :) I wish all wiki readers worked like this, especially the "read later", and tabs options. Well done! One request: when a page fails to load it is still pulled from the Read Later list but not added to the Recently Read list, and thus the tab is lost. Can it be kept somehow?
Searching stuff is too tedious now The new way of searching the app, is incredibly clunky, And needs time to load. Previously it was incredibly responsive and didn't require heavy load times. Was a good way to kill time when my data has gone over it's cap. That is now impossible, it is now so inconvenient I find it easier to use google chrome so surf TV Tropes, unless on Wi-Fi.
Pretty Good I am an avid fan/troper on TV Tropes, this app helps me browse it easily too. One request though, possibly add an Edit Page thing so I can edit things in and stuff.
Two things: Profile and Editing. I love this app. However, adding the ability to log in with your TV Tropes account would increase the app's functionality: You could view the edit history of an article, have a gander at the watchlist. Perhaps you could even add article editing to it?
Ok but with a problem Now the app runs better and all, but there's still the crash problem. At least for me it's not a big annoyance, even if fixing this will make Troper a very entertaining and useful app, just like your wonderful website. (Edit: ...or you can add a feature that restore your previous session, so I don't need to reload every single time every freaking page. Hopefully you will read this review, and thank you for creating this app.)
• The app will no longer crash on startup if it fails clearing cache
• The closing tab graphic caused crashes so it has been removed.
• Offline Articles - save articles for reading even when you have no connection.
• Caching! Re-visiting a page should now be much faster
• You can now delete all contents of a list (Favorites, Recent, Offline, etc.) from the list itself.
• Pull down to refresh to get the newest version of an article.
• Even more bug fixes
