Just a website viewer Yet another "app" that is little more than a window to a website, in this case your diaspora* pod of choice. It does the job, but there's really nothing worth saying about it.
Works Well but needs scaling This app works Well in showing Diaspora in all its awesomeness including animation. It is a bit slow to load even with Wi-Fi. I Will like the next update have an ability to scale the Diaspora screen to minimise scrolling on the smartphone screen.
Confusing app I use diaspora at home but this app wont allow me to sign in without hooking up on some sort of pod... I don't even know what a pod is and I didn't need to sign up for 1 to hook up my account through my computer. . This app should allow people to sign in with their username and password instead of signing up for some pod... this is so confusing. .. At this point this app is basically worthless to me now because I can't even sign in
Buggy Pros: Share shortcut, faster than web browser interface Cons: Text formatting. buggy, buttons are too small, buttons sometimes disappear, unable to zoom or download photos. Verdict: Needs work, but is still usable.
Useful, but buggy One of the most useful features of this app is the Android share function, which allows the user to easily share pretty much anything to Diaspora. Unfortunately this feature is incredibly buggy right now. Trying to share from many apps will simply create an empty post, with none of the content that was to be shared included. Others will include some content, but exclude critical information, like posting a link header without actually hotlinking it to the URL. Ironing out these problems would dramatically increase the usability of this app for myself as well as many other users, undoubtedly.
Basic functionality not here I hope it evolves beyond this point. It's slower than connecting straight through the browser and some buttons don't work.
Fix for bug 14..
(The client is stopped as soon as it is started. This is because the mobileInfo is null)
