Seeing notifications What is not very handy is that you can scroll the whole page left and right except for the notifications bar, which causes you not to be able to see what someone has commented on because that's off screen. You can see the names and whether they commented or liked, but what they liked or commented on exactly will remain a mistery. I thought maybe if I rotate my screen, but unfortunately the app doesn't rotate to landscape. Also I'm missing the share option, to be able to share pictures from your gallery
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.
not even alpha almost unusable on android 4.2. sharing links from chrome to diaspora frequently fails (link is not pasted into textfield) and pasting a custom text does not work at all. several times the phone got completely frozen with diaspora app opened.
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.
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.
Fix for bug 14..
(The client is stopped as soon as it is started. This is because the mobileInfo is null)
