I can not see chinese translation now.

Thanks for your comment. I uploaded a new build, with a hopefully fixed Chinese translation.

Since in the meantime I updated to SFOS 3.3, I now managed to try 1.9.4 (crashing a lot, when refreshing all subscriptions and when downloading longer episodes). Today, I also tried 1.9.5-1 with the debug stuff. Not a single crash when downloading episodes.

However, it still crashes when refreshing all subscriptions. That seems to be because my phone is running out of memory. Just before it crashes, "harbour-podcatcher" process is using 999520 MB RAM (the RES column in top), and more than 1.3 GB VIRT, or 36.5% of RAM. The last lines it outputs to the terminal contain something about dconf_shm_open and "Cannot allocate memory".

Even when using it "normally", it is usually the most memory hungry process on my phone.

Have eyou tried the newest version (1.9.6) with the new parser. Does it still crash?

piwei's picture

1.9.6 still crashes when refreshing all subscriptions. Probably due to missing memory. Shortly before it crashes I see that it uses 30% of all RAM (watching in top in the Terminal).

Downloading or refreshing individual subscriptions does not crash any more for me. Unless the app was open for a long time and I open another podcast listing which apparently then requests a lot of RAM again. Then it might crash on me.

Could not install: what does this mean?

Note: I did not upgrade to 3.3.0.16 yet. Waiting for massive approval ;-)

sdiconov's picture

No. I got the same issue.

piwei's picture

Thanks for the new features in the betas, they are nice and seem to work well. The internal play could use a bigger font for the timing info, but that is a minor issue.

However, I tried 1.9.2 for two days but it was awfully unstable. In addition to crashing shortly after starting to refresh the episodes of all subscriptions it also crashes just before finishing the download of an episode. So I went back to the version from the Jolla store (1.1.25) which only has the first problem, and which I can work around. Is the download-episode crash just my problem?

Carolus's picture

I could not locate the source of the crashes. But the fresh build with some other changes seems to be stable, at least for me.

Carolus's picture

There are still some crashes while downloading. The backtraces look like there may be something broken inside QT/ QML.

piwei's picture

[I saw your replies only now, somehow the email notification of this forum doesn't seem to work...]

Thanks for the info. Despite remaining crashes I wanted to try the new version (1.9.4-1) again but got an error while trying to install. From the terminal I got a message about missing libstdc++.so.6(CXXABI_1.3.9). That isn't what I got for v1.9.2. Has something changed?

I like the new cover-design as well. Thank you for this app!

Shervrar's picture

Works well, but please could you change the cover? It looks really awful. The icon is stretched and too wide, and the background color is weirdly dark.
Apart from that its really nice. Thanks for making it :)

Carolus's picture

I hope this update fixes the cover to your liking.

chris7chris's picture

Thanks, works nice!

sdiconov's picture

A Russian translation pull request has been added to the git. Please, publish :)

osetr's picture

Great! Thanks to this empty application I've found a bug in Storeman. (It's not a sarcasm.)
