We’ve got a lot of new stuff in this version, like:
- update 1.2.1: minor fix for comment-caching going mad. Sorry bout that
- Thumbnail in the upload form (Most Requested Feature)
- Open blipfoto links in the app
- Loading screens
- Back Button Behavior (most alliterating feature!)
- Check out our fancy pants ‘about’ tab in the prefs!
You asked for it, you got it!
Sometimes, especially on slower connections, loading an image can take quite a while. Up until now you would get a black screen with no feedback. Part one of “better experience” is done. You might get the non-informative black/empty screens sometimes (loading comments on slow connections I guess), but most of the time you will see that something is actually happening.
Open blipfoto links in the app
Whenever you select a link to a blipfoto entry, you get to choose to use the browser, or to use AndroBlip. When someone sends you a blipfoto link through email or Twitter or whatever, you can now check the blip out in your favorite Blipfoto Android app :)
The app was remembering all your visited entries. While this is extremely intuitive, certainly when using the ‘back’ button, this makes your Android memory go “whoopy”. And not in a good way. So this all boils down to: “back goes to home” in the end.
Cache is all over the place
More caching (entries for instance, up to 10 at this point) going on! Sadly, this means you’ll be getting the ‘question mark’ image on all of your views the first time you open the app after updates. Sorry ’bout that, but it doesn’t seem like a big killer at this point :). Just press the reload button!
