Android App: Small usability improvements

Postby levito » 21 Oct 2013, 05:36

Hey Fox,

I have some small usability improvement suggestions for the Android app:

1) Feed/Category name in the title bar
Right now, the title bar always reads "Tiny Tiny RSS". Why not show the current feed/category title there?

2) Rearrange buttons so the "reload" button stays where it is
On the overview page and in categories, the button is on the 4th position, in article listings it's on the 1st position. I have no preference where to place it, but it should be consistent in all views. By the way: Thanks for pull-to-refresh, this makes sense, but it doesn't fully solve the issue.

Do these suggestions seem meaningful to you?

Thanks a lot for making my most visited app and website!

1) It says that where it is appropriate, e.g. on smartphones. On tablets, the title is usually clearly visible anyway.

2) Reload button is going into overflow in a few versions because of pull to refresh. Don't get too attached to it.

e: on 2) I do agree that it should have been on the same position, it was mildly annoying me also.

On 1) looks like you are right, I think this got broken with sliding panel, so it doesn't update title on smartphones now. I'll try to fix this later.

Was this fixed?
Because when I enter a category / feed I still see "Tiny Tiny RSS" instead of the category / feed name.
Feed name only shows up when actually reading an article.
Thanks

Nope, sorry. Maybe sometime later.

No problem. It's still usable although sometimes confusing :-)
I just wanted to make sure it was not due to any "wrong" setting on my side.
