Using Thunder app on iOS.
  • Hey there! As others have mentioned, it could be an issue with your network.

    Are you perhaps using a VPN? If so, this may be an issue as some instances block image uploading or other actions (I believe lemmy.world blocks image uploads if you’re using a VPN)

    If you’re still having issues, feel free to open up a new GitHub issue and we can take a further look into this (as a side note, I’m using iOS and I haven’t encountered any issues)!

    [Screenshot] Color contrast for OP and mod names
  • Let OP/mod colors take precedence and override the default color with them

    I think this is a good idea! This should allow for colorized user/instance names while keeping special user badges distinguishable.

    Alpha Release [v0.3.0]: Modlogs, mod reports, and more customizations!
  • I'm glad we found the root cause of the issue. I'd also like to chime in here to say that I think it makes the most sense for Thunder to respect the system settings. I know that I would also get frustrated if it were the opposite. For example, if I had system haptics off but an app was not respecting the system settings.

    @[email protected] This may be a dumb question, but are there per app settings that can be set to turn on/off haptics? If so, this may be the best course of action to take!

  • Alpha Release [v0.3.0]: Modlogs, mod reports, and more customizations!
  • It might be a device/version dependent issue - perhaps related to permissions

    Could you let me know what device and Android version you’re currently using? Also, could you double check that vibrations permissions are enabled for Thunder? Thanks!

  • Alpha Release [v0.3.0]: Modlogs, mod reports, and more customizations!
  • Ehem...no there is no haptic feedback actually.

    Hmm, unfortunately I don’t have an Android device to test with so I won’t be able to reproduce the issue on my end. I’ll ping @[email protected] to see if he can reproduce this!

    I'm afraid I'm a bit far from this GitHub area so cannot help with opening up an issue

    That’s alright! I’ve created it for you here. Let me know if the description matches what you were expecting!

  • Alpha Release [v0.3.0]: Modlogs, mod reports, and more customizations!
  • Thanks for the kind words!

    Any chance that gestures become with haptic feedback

    I believe there is already haptic feedback for the gesture actions (upvote/downvote/save/mark as read/reply). If you don't have them, double check and see if your system settings has vibrations enabled! If that doesn't work, I would suggest opening up a new issue on GitHub with more details so that we can reproduce the issue.

    also to be able to change their colors, eg red for downvote green for upvote

    I don't believe this has been requested before. Please open a new issue on GitHub for this so that we can better track it 😄

    Release v0.3.0 · thunder-app/thunder

    Hey everyone, its been a while but it's finally time for another Thunder release. As always, there have been many improvements, additions, changes and fixes in this release which should make for a even better Thunder experience. If you have any suggestions or feedback, feel free to discuss it in the Thunder community or on GitHub.

    A quick reminder: if you are using the Google Play version or App Store version, please note that it may take a bit of time before you receive the update. Now onto the update notes. This update brings a few major features:

    🎉 New Features

    • Instance and community modlogs are now available in Thunder. To access the instance modlog, tap on the triple dot button located on the top app bar and select "Modlog" when viewing general feeds (Subscribed/Local/All). To access a community modlog, navigate to the given community and find "Modlog" in the extended actions.
    • Mod reports are now available to view and resolve within Thunder via the drawer. If you are a moderator or admin of a community/instance, you should see a new "Reports" option under the general feeds. Only post and comment reports are available at this time. Private message reports will come in a future update.
    • The user feed has been fully re-worked to provide a better experience similar to the general/community feeds. This means that you can now change the sorting when viewing a user feed, and use the FAB for additional actions.
    • An instance explorer has been added into the Search page. This allows you to explore communities, posts and comments for the current instance.
    • Thunder now has an in-app changelog for updates. It is turned on by default, but can be toggled off in the settings. This changelog should help you keep track of what additions, changes, and fixes have been added in upcoming versions.

    ℹ General

    • Improvements to markdown rendering. Spoiler markdown detection has been improved, and there is now initial/experimental support for subscript and superscript markdown tags. Markdown quick actions when creating posts/comments will be added in the near future.
    • You can now customize the user/community name format and style across Thunder! This is accessible through Settings -> Appearance -> Theming. You can adjust the font weight, colour, and format for both user and community names.
    • Improved UI/UX for long press actions, and additional customization options including customizable feed dividers and navigation bar labels.

    And much much more. I can't go through all the changes in the changelog, but for those who are curious, feel free to check out the full changelog below.

    We have a Matrix space if you would like to join in on discussions: https://matrix.to/#/#thunderapp:matrix.org

    ---

    I would just like to thank everyone for the continued support and contributions. Thunder is still a project that I can only work on the side, and knowing that others enjoy it drives me to continue working on it!

    If you would like to show a token of appreciation to me or anyone else that has contributed, check out the following link for more information: https://github.com/thunder-app/thunder/issues/756

    Login seems broken?
  • Hey there, thanks for mentioning this issue. If you haven’t already, could you try logging out then back in to see if that resolves the issue?

    If that doesn’t work, I would suggest going to Settings -> Debug -> Delete Local Database. This will clear all accounts on your device. Restart Thunder after clearing the database and try to login again.

    If all of that doesn’t work, please submit a new issue on GitHub with more details (Thunder version, screenshots, reproducible steps, etc). Thanks!

    How can I swich between two instances?
  • Hey there! As others have already mentioned, you can switch between your instances by long pressing on the Account/Profile tab and selecting your other account.

    If you’re asking how to migrate your account’s subscriptions to another account, that feature is not yet available in Thunder.

  • Mod-deleted comments still appearing, rendered
  • Thanks for mentioning this issue! I believe this has already been fixed in the latest nightly build v0.3.0-1.

    The fix is not yet on the general release build yet (v0.2.9) but should come eventually when v0.3.0 is near completion. As a temporary measure, you can block the user and the corresponding comments should be gone!

  • Devider between posts?
  • Hey there! I believe the dividers are still there, but they might’ve been slightly tweaked in between versions. I’m working on making this a customizable setting to tweak and it should arrive in a nightly build soon.

    I’ll provide more details when I have everything set up!

    • Added initial support for marking posts as read when scrolling through. Thanks to Fmstrat for implementing this feature.

    Note: There is currently an issue where blurred posts on the feed will flicker when scrolling (primarily on iOS). This is noted and a fix will hopefully be applied soon (this issue does not come from Thunder, but from the Flutter framework).

    Thanks again for sticking around, and please mention any bugs and issues that you encounter when using this version!

    Reporting posts will hopefully come soon as well as I continue work on additional moderator actions!

  • [Feature Request] Auto Play GIFs and Videos from Redgifs / Catbox / Imgur etc.
  • Hey, sorry I must’ve missed this post previously!

    Just to provide an update on this, there is currently some draft work on implementing video playback which you can track in this PR: https://github.com/thunder-app/thunder/pull/1081

    As for when this will be completed, I can’t say for sure but we are aware of this and are working on it!

  • Apps that allow to view the modlog?
  • This is being worked on for Thunder. It’s currently in draft stages but should hopefully land soon to a nightly build!

    Hey everyone, just a friendly reminder for those on instances that are either about to upgrade or have recently upgraded from version 0.18 to 0.19 (e.g., lemmy.world, lemmy.blahaj.zone, sh.itjust.works, etc.).

    After your instance updates to 0.19, please remember to re-authenticate (i.e., log out and log back in). This is because of some authentication changes made in 0.19 which invalidates the session.

    Thanks!

    Alpha Release [v0.2.9]: Moderator actions, high-refresh support, and more!

    Release v0.2.9 · thunder-app/thunder

    Hey everyone, it's time for yet another Thunder release. As always, there have been many improvements, additions, changes and fixes in this release which should make for a even better Thunder experience. If you have any suggestions or feedback, feel free to discuss it in the Thunder community or on GitHub.

    A quick reminder: if you are using the Google Play version or App Store version, please note that it may take a bit of time before you receive the update. Now onto the update notes. This update brings a few major features:

    🎉 New Features

    • Initial support for moderator actions. Thunder has added support for some moderator actions such as locking, pinning, and removing posts. To access these actions, simply long-press on a post and select "Moderator Actions" from the menu. Additional moderator actions such as mod logs, and reports will come in a future update.
    • Support for high-refresh rate devices. Thunder should now feel smoother on Android devices with high-refresh rate displays, and should no longer be limited to 60 Hz. For iOS, Thunder also supports ProMotion devices.
    • Customizable post metadata. You can now customize the post metadata information (vote counts, comment counts, etc) on your feed! This can be done in Settings -> Appearance -> Compact/Card View Settings. Simply drag and drop the metadata information you want to see on your feed. The order of the information will be the order that you drag it into the preview.
    • Experimental local push notification support on Android. Thunder has experimental support for handling push notifications locally on Android devices. When enabled, Thunder will attempt to fetch new notifications in the background while the app is not running. Please note that this feature is highly dependent on the Android OS and their battery saving settings

    ℹ General

    • Additional UI/UX and quality-of-life improvements. This includes but is not limited to:
      • Support for spoiler markdown tags. Spoiler tags will be automatically minimized, and can be expanded when tapping on them
      • Support for creating cross posts for an existing post, and deleting existing posts
      • Addition of more options including hiding top app bar, medium font scale option, and colorized usernames
    • Added new condensed post body view to the post page which shows a smaller preview of images and thumbnails
    • Added the ability to search posts/comments directly from community feed

    And much much more. I can't go through all the changes in the changelog, but for those who are curious, feel free to check out the full changelog below.

    We have a Matrix space if you would like to join in on discussions: https://matrix.to/#/#thunderapp:matrix.org

    ---

    I would just like to thank everyone for the continued support and contributions. Thunder is still a project that I can only work on the side, and knowing that others enjoy it drives me to continue working on it!

    If you would like to show a token of appreciation to me or anyone else that has contributed, check out the following link for more information: https://github.com/thunder-app/thunder/issues/756

    Thanks again for everything so far, and I hope you enjoy this update!

    Release v0.2.9-1 · thunder-app/thunder

    This is the first pre-release for Thunder v0.2.9! This pre-release version introduces quite a few new features and improvements, as well as usual bug fixes.

    Be fully prepared to know that these pre-release versions may contain major bugs which could cause Thunder to crash or behave unexpectedly.

    For those on TestFlight, you will receive the pre-release update once it has been approved by Apple.

    Some notable changes to test out:

    • Thunder now has support for high-refresh displays on Android. This should improve the user experience for those with high refresh displays. However, do keep in mind that this may potentially increase battery usage for those devices. If you encounter any issues, please create a new issue on GitHub.
    • Initial support for spoiler tags have been added. Whenever there is a spoiler tag, Thunder will display it as expandable content within the post body or comment. This initial support should catch most cases, but there may be some edge cases where spoilers still show up.
    • A whole bunch of small UI/UX improvements across the board. Ability to create cross-posts, share user profiles, changes to account selector, and more!

    Thanks again for sticking around, and please mention any bugs and issues that you encounter when using this version!

    Hi everyone and happy new year! It's finally time for another Thunder release. As always, there have been many improvements, additions, changes and fixes in this release which should make for a even better Thunder experience. If you have any suggestions or feedback, feel free to discuss it in the Thunder community or on GitHub.

    A quick reminder: if you are using the Google Play version or App Store version, please note that it may take a bit of time before you receive the update. Now onto the update notes. This update brings a few major features:

    🎉 Features

    • You can now edit your own posts, and set the appropriate language for your post. When you open your own post, you will see a pencil icon which will allow you to edit your post along with the language.
    • The Settings page has been overhauled and re-organized, with post and comment previews for certain visual settings. This should hopefully provide a better overall experience for adjusting and customizing your settings.
    • You can now set Thunder's app language to any of currently available translations. Please note that the translations are not fully complete, and you may encounter untranslated content.
    • Additional settings have been added in which sync up with your Lemmy account. This includes showing/hiding read posts, showing/hiding scores, and showing/hiding bot accounts.
    • There is now a Safari extension which allows you to open Lemmy links within Thunder for iOS users. This extension is disabled by default, but can be enabled in the system settings under Safari -> Extensions.
    • Favoriting communities is now available. When you favorite a community, it will be prioritized throughout the app (in the drawer, search results, etc.)
    • Keyword filters are now available in the Settings page. Adding keywords will filter any posts whose title or body containing one or more keywords.
    • Many quality-of-life improvements including collapsible post bodies, more community translations, addition of more sort types, improved search filters.

    ⚙️ Performance

    • Improved general loading times when starting up Thunder. This should result in some drastic improvements for certain instances.
    • Updated many under-the-hood dependencies.

    And much much more. I can't possibly go through all the changes in the changelog, but for those who are curious, feel free to check out the full changelog on the GitHub announcement.

    As always, this is an alpha release, so do expect bugs to pop up here and there. We have a Matrix space if you would like to join in on discussions: https://matrix.to/#/#thunderapp:matrix.org

    Happy holidays everyone ❄️! I'm back again to share some updates on Thunder’s ongoing development for those who might not be keeping tabs on our progress in the Matrix space or GitHub.

    The next upcoming update will be hopefully released within the next couple weeks, and will bring a whole set of new features and quality-of-life improvements! We’ve been working on some of the most requested features, so I hope you enjoy them.

    > PSA: Lemmy 0.19.0 is now officially released. As your instances begin upgrading to 0.19.0, please be aware that you will need to log out and log back in for some things to work

    Here's a brief summary of the main features we will be releasing in the next Thunder general build:

    • Ability to edit your own posts and set the post language.
    • Full reorganization of the settings page, with post and comment previews.
    • Ability to search for keywords in comments when you’re in a post.
    • Setting to combine comment scores, and show user instance.
    • Safari extension to open Lemmy links in Thunder on iOS devices.
    • Ability to favorite communities. Favoriting communities will create a new section in the sidebar for quick access, and will prioritize them in community suggestions and search results.
    • Ability to set keyword filters. Adding keywords will filter any posts whose title or body containing one or more keywords.
    • Performance improvements which should drastically reduce the start up time for some users.
    • And much more as described in the changelog!

    For those on the nightly or TestFlight builds, you will mostly have access to these features already for testing. Please report any issues that you see so that they can be fixed before it hits general availability.

    A huge thanks again to everyone who has been actively contributing, and as always, we are constantly looking for more contributors to the project! Thank you for all the community members for contributing translations. If you would like to help contribute, feel free to reach out on our Matrix space or on GitHub.

    This is the fifth pre-release for Thunder v0.2.7! This pre-release version focuses on adding the ability to favorite communities in the sidebar, keyword filters, and a lot of other small quality of life improvements.
