Comments

That's right, it does. 3.3 is the requirement then.

glanternier's picture

This app is great! Will you add it the Jolla store?

velox's picture

At the moment, it is not quite compatible with Jolla Store rules and there are a lot of things with higher priority. I'm sure it'll at least get discussed a bit further at some point, though.

mshigorin's picture

Hope it does get there some day.

rdomschk's picture

Wäre es möglich das beim Öffnen eines Chats oder beim senden einer Nachricht der Chat immer nach unten gescrollt wird? Vielen Dank im voraus ist eine perfekt desingte App!!!

velox's picture

Es gibt noch ein paar Probleme mit dem Scrolling, im nächsten Release dürfte es aber zumindest etwas besser funktionieren.

s_mario's picture

Bei der Benutzer-Registrierung verlangt das Programm hier zwei Mal nach dem Vornamen...?

 

velox's picture

Ups, gut aufgepasst. Da hat sich bei der Übersetzung der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen.
Sollte beim nächsten Release (recht bald) repariert sein. Danke!

Brummkreisel's picture

Nach Eingabe des Codes aus der SMS lädt die App immens lange. Es passiert sonst nix.
Gibt es irgendwelche Voraussetzungen?
XA2 3.4.0.24

WerkWolf's picture

Möglicherweise den Code falsch eingegeben, da hakt es ab und zu nochmal. Im Zweifel die v0.3 ausprobieren...

Brummkreisel's picture

Hui, mit der neuen Version hat es geklappt. Dieses mal brauchte ich kein Code eingeben...
Wo kann ich denn einen Chat beginnen? Im Pully-Menü habe ich nur "Einstellungen und Über"...

WerkWolf's picture

Das geht noch nicht - ist ja auch erst v0.3. Wird aber recht bald nachgereicht...

Brummkreisel's picture

Achso, na dann warte ich natürlich noch. Wie immer bei Ihren Apps fügt sich auch diese optisch hervorragend in das SFOS ein.
Musterbeispiele!
Bitte Donation-Button ergänzen.

Maximilian1st's picture

Hi, thank you for this nice app. It does not update from 0.1 to 0.2 here on SFOS 3.0.3 with a fling something error not found.

yusssufff's picture

Great 0.2 release!

One question: is it in your plans to show on the "first" page of chats if a message is read or not? Its materialized with one of two checks on the official telegram app... Usefull to see at a glance if your messages were recieved from the main chat page...

Thanks for the hard work!

rgsidler's picture

@Cryx Endlich mal eine App, bei welcher man nicht immer geduzt wird. Danke dafür. Offenbar haben viele immer noch nicht verstanden, dass das englische „You“ in keiner Weise dem deutschen Du entspricht, sondern in erster Linie ein respektvolles Sie meint.

velox's picture

Die "offiziellen" Sprachvorgaben von Jolla sehen einen informellen Sprachstil vor, weswegen die meisten Entwickler/Übersetzer (mich eingeschlossen, vielleicht reagiere ich deshalb so ausführlich) dies übernehmen. Mit "verstanden" hat das also nicht unbedingt zwangsweise etwas tun. Vielleicht liegt das auch daran, dass in Finnland sehr viel geduzt wird und sie damit einen Teil ihrer Kommunikationskultur zelebrieren.

Zwar wurde das englische "Du" (thou) ab dem 17. Jhd. abgeschafft, doch heutzutage entspricht "You" durchaus dem "Du". Aber eben auch dem ursprünglichen "Sie" – weil es schlicht nicht mehr differenziert wird.

Davon abgesehen finde ich es aber auch prima, wenn Entwickler persönliche Präferenzen haben und individuell umsetzen. Ich habe gegen beides nichts einzuwenden und kann beides gut nachvollziehen.

(Editiert: In einem Sprachbesserwisserbeitrag etwas falsch geschrieben – na prost Mahlzeit.)

Cryx's picture

Offizielle Sprachvorgaben von Jolla sehen einen informellen Stil vor? Warum hält sich Jolla selbst nicht daran? Klar, ist kein dieser App hier - vielleicht fehlt es im System einfach schon an der Auswahl. Nextcloud zum Beispiel lässt sich umstellen auf persönlich (Du) oder Informell (Sie).

>  In einem Sprachbesserwisserbeitrag etwas falsch geschrieben

Das ist halt Muphry's Law! :D

Cryx's picture

So unterschiedlich sind die Meinungen... ;-)
Mein Hsndy ist mein bester Kumpel - da mag ich gerne gedutzt werden.

WerkWolf's picture

Ich mag das Geduze von Apps und meinem Handy nicht so wirklich, ich toleriere es aber. Meine eigenen Apps dürfen aber gerne ein wenig Respekt vor mir haben - ich habe auch genug Respekt davor, die zu schreiben. ;)

inta's picture

Man kann viel mögen oder auch nicht, da das Betriebsystem du sagt, würde ich es vorziehen, wenn sich die Anwendungen daran orientieren und sich möglichst gut integrieren.

Cryx's picture

Nachdem es jetzt läuft der Ersteindruck: sehr schön. Wie wäre es bei Deutsch mit "Du" statt "Sie"? Und in einem Gruppenchat steht in der Chatliste "Sie hat ein Bild geschickt" für ein von mir geschicktes Foto. Das sollte natürlich "Sie haben..." (oder schöner halt "Du hast") heißen...
Neuen Chat starten oder Kontakte sehen geht noch nicht, vermute ich (zumindest finde ich das nicht)...? Aber was noch fehlt kommt sicher noch...

yusssufff's picture

hello and thank you for your hard work!

I wonder why, on XA2 (Rokua), after sending a message or when cheching some new chat, the app shows a 'random' area of the chat, slightly above the last message sent and not the last message sent istelf... i recall a similar behaviour with Telegra'me that leads, just after sending a message, the need to immediatly scroll down the chat to be able to see/read it...

WerkWolf's picture

Please see https://github.com/Wunderfitz/harbour-fernschreiber/issues/1 for some additional details about this issue. 0.2 will see some improvements there and if somebody want to contribute improvements themselves: PRs are welcome. :)

yusssufff's picture

true! my bad,i didt see that!

And one question also: will you publish soon the app on the jolla store? that would be fantastic...

WerkWolf's picture

Jolla Store is currently quite unlikely. The app uses some features that are not released for the Store...

slava's picture

Which features, by the way? I'm pretty good at getting around jolla store restrictions :)

WerkWolf's picture

At the moment, it's definitely ngfutils for non-visual feedback of notifications. In addition, the Harbour Validator is complaining about path strings in the TDLib binary. I suppose ngfutils can directly be compiled into the project itself to remove that dependency. No idea about the path strings in the binary though. Any idea is appreciated. :)

slava's picture

I'm curious, what's the point in not checking in tdlibsecrets.h? That just makes it slightly harder to build your app, and yet your TDLIB_API_ID and TDLIB_API_HASH values are easy enough to figure out by setting a breakpoint in td_json_client_send, so they are not really secret. I would say the more developers can build your app, the more meaningful contributions you can expect. Or is it some sort of legal requirement, to force people to make this extra step?
