The app doesn't really give me a reason to be used instead of a web browser. It's about the same, so what's the advantage of using the app? Except that the app doesn't allow me to do some things. Today I decided to award a bounty, but there was no option for it. Also, it renders equations in questions and answers, but not in comments. (I haven't used the app much, I'm sure I would've spotted something else missing.)
Much appreciated update! I'm on SE a lot, usually reading voraciously. Hours spent traversing embedded links until I'm trenches deep from where I began. I like returning to my reading upon reopening the app; this works in general. Still, I'd really like the ability to bookmark pages that merit extra attention and/or - as I am logged into the app - being able to review my reading history would make this app exceptional.
Can't delete answers is a big oversight... I like this app, it feels like a lot of websites that try to switch to mobile "should" feel like. It fits to my tiny screen well, code highlighting, etc. The only issue I can think of that regularly bugs me is my upvotes often don't stick until I refresh. Just removes the immersion a bit. Also, not being able to delete my own answers is absurd. Not even a grace period. If you answer wrong, you're stuck with it.
Not connected to internet This is a great app. Only issue I've had so far was when things weren't loading completely but just wasn't connected to the net. "Is it plugged in?" Duh moment but srs, download it now!
Very functional. Poor UX I can see the utility to having all stack exchange sites. I even discovered new sites that I didn't know existed (downloaded for stackoverflow). That's great but this app is completely blind to my preferences without the ability to edit them. My feed is irrelevant and I have to use menu every time in order to access SO. When I get there my feed is still random. Not unusable, but poor ux.
Mostly like but the app's inability to delete my own answers after I create them, or to view my deleted answers, is annoying. For example, if I and another person respond more-or-less concurrently to someone's question, and I like the other person's answer more than my own, I sometimes just delete my own answer. When browsing the Stack Exchange website with a web browser (e.g., Chrome) I can delete my answers if I want; with this app I cannot. Likewise, with the web browser I can see my deleted answers after they are deleted (apparently they just hidden from everyone else's view); with this app I cannot.
Hey, hey, what's up?! Long time no see!
We've done a bit of spring cleaning:
- The markdown editor keyboard has been completely overhauled. All those buttons above the keyboard when posting a question or answer work better now, especially the image upload and blockquote buttons.
- Much better sign-up/log-in flow, including better handling of a sign-up attempt using already known credentials.
- A much better in-app bug reporting process.
- There's more but I'm running out of characters, 500 max!
