Dapplr Bug Fixes and Open Access (Android)

in #dapplr9 months ago (edited)

Hello, We want to thank the Dapplr Alpha Team and all the people are continuously helping us making Dapplr reliable and robust. We are fixing bugs on daily basis and it has been a very productive week for us. With this we have also published an update of the app including most of the fixes recommended by the Dapplr Alpha Team. We want to write about the bugs that are fixed in the application.


New Features, Enhancements and Bug Fixes

1. Sharing post link

A lot of people suggested this. With this, a user will now be able to share its post link with other users and we have integrated this with dynamic/deep link, so in case if user opens up the link in the mobile device the Dapplr app will be able to redirect the user to the corresponding post.


2. Tags

As suggested by our team, the tags were a bit difficult to add and a user would have to press enter button on the mobile keyboard to add it, so we have reduced down that task for users and now a user will be able to add tags with spaces(,) and commas (,) . Pressing space/comma button on writing a tag would add the tag for the post.

3. Better video support and optimised memory consumption

We are trying to make Dapplr as efficient as possible so we are always looking for the areas that can be improved and help us deliver a great user experience. We have made some changes to the videos and now they are fast with even low memory consumption.

4. Font size

Some of the users encountered this problem where the font size was too small and we debugged and found that the issue was coming if the phone device has comparatively large width than conventional mobile devices. We have fixed this issue by modifying some of our size attributes.

5. “Next” button on Content Editor Screen

Some of the users faced this problem while typing that Next button on the page was hiding some of their content and was a bit of a hurdle while getting the content right. So, we added this new draggable Next button and now a user will be able to slide it according to its need.


6. New line breaks

The content editor was not able to read this and we have now made the changes and it is fixed in the updated version of the application.

7. Sequential uploading videos

We have made this enhancement in case if a user uploads multiple videos and it fails at some point, so the user doesn't have to upload all the videos again. Uploaded videos will be shown to the user with error message in case if all of the videos are not successfully uploaded.

8. Spacing between images

There was no spacing between the images and it was not looking great on other platforms such as https://hive.blog , https://peakd.com and others so we added a newline break between the images and videos.

9. Change “Resteemed” to “Reblogged”

There was resteemed coming from the hivesigner api which was causing this issue. So, now we are dealing with this at the application level by replacing the text with the desired one.

10. Content Not Visible

We saw at quite a few places that the content was not coming as desired. This problem occurred because there are a tons of platform built on HIVE and they have different formatting system. We have implemented our own formatter / parser and with this update we have included quite a lot of things to parse the content exactly as written by the author.

11. Content Editor Fixes

There are tons of content editor fixes that we have made and it is now providing a much better experience to the user.

12. Title and Description validations

We have now added the validations for the Content Editor title and body. In case if a user leaves them out, he would see an error message with description.

13. Editor "space" fixes

A user was not able to add spaces in between the content and this issue was quite tricky and it was actually a part of the tools that we use to create the app. We were able to resolve this issue with minor fixes to the SDK.

14. Dapplr Videos Support on PeakD and Hive.Blog

We are in touch with the PeakD team and hopefully, they will bring the Dapplr Videos support by this week and for Hive.blog, our devs will be adding support for this on the condenser code (https://hive.blog).

15. Several other enhancements

We have made several other enhancements related to the UI and functionality. Dapplr is now coming together and the confidence in having a reliable and robust application is greatly increased.

We believe this will not only help users feel connected to the application but also help the user do the blockchain operations seamlessly.

Open Access

After these fixes, Dapplr is more robust, reliable and efficient. So we are taking another step by giving the access to many more people of the community but we have set the restriction of 1000 people and we will see how it goes and how many issues come to us. Referral system is up and running so don't forget to refer your friends with your referral link. The application is not battle tested yet so we need your help in finding the bugs and we will resolve them on daily basis.

Hi @jocieprosza

Yes, it could be a very good boost to the HIVE community.

BTW you write about referral links, how can I create/find one?

Posted using Dapplr

  1. Swipe the blob from the right most of the screen and Account Settings screen will open.
  2. You will see Referral card. You can go there and you will see your referral link.

Thank you zit worked, but it wasn't easy as I use full screen gestures. Will fille the issue via proper channels

Hi @Felix.herrmann

Thank you for your feedback. Our goal is to help HIVE reach masses. It will take time but we will be very soon.

I realize this may be some early marketing thing but could you please consider making the "posted using dapplr" optional for each user, or at least make it look better than just a text after each comment.

Hi @acidyo

Yes, We will be making that customisable along with a lot of other things.

I would love to be also an IOS tester :)
And of course looking forward for the contest tomorrow!
Go, Go Team! You are phenomenal and thank you for always being there, listening to what everybody has to say

Hi @keterinaramm

Awesome. Thank you for your continuous support. Yes, contest is going to be exciting for Dapplr users. Stay tuned for the updates.

Well done guys and thanks to the guys testing and identifying bugs

Hi @joetunex

Thank you for your continuous support. Stay tuned for the updates.

You are welcome 🙂

Finally, open access :)

Hi @cardboard

Yes, Try it out now. iOS version will be available very soon. Stay tuned for the updates.

Awesome, waiting eagerly for IOS version

Hi @imfarhad

Yes, We know it has been quite some time but we also want the HIVE users to try iOS app as soon as possible. Stay tuned for the updates.

app looks great, for an alpha stage works really well. congrats on good job.

option to add photos from gallery in the comments would be nice.

also option to chose communities you want to see i find really important. so when i click on my communities, some kind of menu where i can chose specific community to see.

keep up this great work.

Hi @bil.prag

Thank you for your feedback. We are working on adding the photos in the comments with some additional features.Stay tuned for the updates

The app is magnificent. I am hoping that you could make each users view mode selection a settings feature so that the app remembers the view mode selected. I prefer the flat list view because it is easier to browse content and having to keep selecting every time I load up the app is driving me up the wall. 😅😅

Can't wait for the IOS version!

Hey @dapplr team!
Great work on the app but I just noticed a bug if I should call it like this.
Videos are showing upside-down when trying to watch them.

Maybe something you want to look at.

Namaste 🙏

Instaled!👍 How to get any dapplr tokens?

Hi @jozef230

You can get Dapplr Tokens by referring other people and Taking part in the Photography contest. Stay Tuned for the updates.
