My comment is somehow related to @addy comments. I can't update my OS due to the fact of using Xperia X Compact. But I'm notified about updates, which aren't suitable for my OS version. Guess the API won't permit checks like that. But how about a suppress update option?

Hm. Now I noticed that disabling automatic updates checking hides the "Disable notifications" switcher. It's a bug in UI and should be fixed.

osetr's picture

I think it's related to this issue. For now you can disable notifications for available updates.

Vieno's picture

Correct, that basically the same feature request ;-) Using the phone to add comments has no full text search for previous comments ;-) (this is not a feature request)

In case anybody has an endless refresh cache problem like I had.

Try as root: zypper ref -f

Maybe another suggestion, since Storeman has now become the main way to comment on Openrepos for many users: what about a "See your comments" in the "This device" screen? It could come above the "Backups" button, and would show comments from the latest at the top to previous ones below, with the name of the app as a header for each comment, replies displayed, and tap to go to the corresponding app comments page.
This would greatly facilitate keeping track of recent comments and questions to devs. I posted like 10 comments lately, and while I know some will be answered soon, some devs don't really check often and it may take weeks or months until they notice, probably when they'll update their app.
I understand it may be a lot of work, but I'm just throwing ideas naively.

It's a good idea but it's not possible with the current API as I know. Try to create an issue here.

Unable to view screenshots after last update. Nothing happens after clicking on the thumbnails.

osetr's picture

Which version of SFOS do you use?

addy's picture

2.1.4 Intex

osetr's picture

The last changes in Storeman break the compatability with this version. You can use the previous version or revert the changes manually. I will try to add a workaround for older versions of OS in next release.

Kabouik's picture

Excellent, thanks. Hope you'll find a decent way to implement that without too much coding.

Kabouik's picture

Would it be possible to have some sort of filtering or category to restrict listed applications depending on the date of their last update? It could be a menu or a keyword in the search field like "date: yyyy-mm-dd" or "lastmodification: xx (number of months)".
There are now many outdated, old or even abandonned apps on Openrepos, and while some still work and just are complete with no need for updates, most are just not maintained anymore and may not run anymore, have better alternatives (see for example the many applications for Telegram or Whatsapp, most being abandonned), or have vulnerabilities. It could be useful for patches as well.
Otherwise, Storeman still rocking! Thanks for the great app and for your continued work!

I'll see what I can do.

The link to the "Full changelog" in the section "Changelog:" here on Openrepos (i.e. above) and consequently also in Storeman results in a 404: Not Found, unfortunately (current link target is https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mentaljam/harbour-storeman/master/harb...).

osetr's picture

I've changed the source tree on GitHub and have forgotten to change the link.

Thanks!

olf's picture

Working and looking fine now: Thank you.

Hi osetr. Thanks for this useful app!
I have an issue though. In the list of installed applications, tapping on an app name gives two options - search on openrepos and remove. I think this should just take the user to app page. Furthermore, in my case, selecting search option for LLs video player returns two results none of which is the desired app, LLs player. May be there is an issue with search api or storeman itself.

osetr's picture

Hi,

Long story short - it's an issue with the API. Also you can read my comment at GitHub.

Great app!!

Hi osetr, I have realised I can open several instances of Storeman from the launcher icon. (Jolla1 2.2.0.29)

osetr's picture

Yes, it's a known issue for me. It's so because of using invoker for launching Storeman. I will fix it in next releases. Thank you!

Markkyboy's picture

Thank you :)

Could you please provide an option to disable auto updates or at least have the option to update during a certain day of the week or something. It's rather annoying to open the app trying to install/uninstall something and while the app starts auto update check. Thanks

osetr's picture

Done :)
