  • Really liking this update a lot, the community jump feature is great! Been using it so much I’ve noticed myself tapping the screen at the top now as a muscle memory haha! Two quick notes on it, it might make sense to have a small UI element (like a pulldown arrow) to show future users that it’s there and would it be possible to enable it when reading posts as well as browsing communities?

    Also, I think it’s awesome that you’re trying to avoid subscriptions. Might be worth a small blurb about that along with a “donate if you can but don’t worry if you can’t” type of thing somewhere in the app and we’ll help you keep the server going :) Even just on the “About” page in the settings, it was the first place I looked for it.

    Agreed, even the web UI is sorely lacking. A few ideas as places to get started:

    • Community Modlog available in client
    • Remove post / comment
    • Ban user (with checkbox to remove all posts)
    • Community search box (used to check duplicates and certain bad words) (also mod action should be able to be taken from search results)

    More advanced options that would be awesome to have and would give features even the web UI is missing:

    • Thread nuking (recursive delete) as some threads devolve into totally toxic chat wars and I just want to remove a comment and all under it (the starting point could sometimes be a few replies in and not necessarily a top comment)
    • Search lists with regular expressions where I can one button run an advanced search list on a community I moderate with the matches highlighted within the comments or posts returned
    • Push notifications for reports

  • I seriously wouldn’t buy a car at this point if it didn’t have CarPlay or Android Auto in it. Navigation with Google Maps or Waze is vastly superior to anything a car company is ever going to come up with (props to Apple Maps too for making big improvements in the last several years). Integrated music experiences where I can directly see my Spotify playlists or favorite tracks without touching my phone is just something I’m used to and couldn’t go back. Having a voice assistant that works from Google / Apple (I know Siri is rough sometimes lol) will always be better than any voice controls a car company comes up with. Oh, and huuuge points to Overcast for just reliably being the best podcast app for many years and having a super easy to navigate CarPlay app. I’d lose all of that and more if there was no integration with my phone and we went back to the awful bluetooth pairing that we had before with terrible UI design and no support for third party apps.

    At this point, that’s more important to me than whatever engine they’ve stuck in it. Just give me good mileage, pass inspection and last at least 150k miles and we’re good. I’m not drag racing so I don’t need a rocket ship lol

  • That’s awesome! I think there’s a newer generation of CarPlay from Apple that lets the auto-makers use the Apple UI for everything, including the spedometers, climate and other gauges. If that data can be integrated into third party apps, I think developers would come up with some really cool things.

    I really wish my Hyundai would let me do that, maybe I should look into Nissan for my next car haha. How have you been finding the Leaf? I’ve only heard good things about it from others.
