 New version of the iOS app (iOS 15 )
Topic Originator: Milos Drizzle  
Date:   Wed 29 Dec 23:15

Hello, hope admin are okay with me posting this on the footy forum, as most folks won’t see it on the Admin forum). I’ve just published a new version of the iOS app, re-written from the ground up using a new Apple framework, SwiftUI. Unfortunately it’s only available to those running iOS 15 and up. Hopefully a fair few of you will have this latest version of the OS, or plan to upgrade your device.

The updated version of the app (v3.0) app is lighter, faster and smoother than the current version (v1.8.7, I think). It also has Live Updates, Themes (not customisable), and Search. It also caches images intelligently, and font sizes can be changed independently on each screen.

Note that on the App Store it is under “DAFC.net Forum 2”. You will only get v3 if you are running iOS 15 or above.

It seems to be generally stable - I’ve tested on an iPhone 6s and 10. Hopefully folks will find it runs okay, but let me know on this thread how you get on.

Edited to say that I’ve tried a few themes and same issues. I may have my phone set to a dark theme of that makes any difference?

But themes themselves look great BTW and bashes are great (names)

Same as above - can’t see what I’m typing. Black text in a dark grey box. Other than that, looks good.

iPhone 12 Pro Max on iOS 15.3 - finding it really unresponsive, keep having to close down and restart and refresh to see posts or scroll down. Will bear with it today and see if it settles down

Ah, just realised that Dark Mode is throwing a spanner in the works re: the edit form - I`ll aim to fix later.

P - can I confirm that you do have the most recent version? In the About screen it should say v3.0. I`m surprised to hear that you are finding it unresponsive and crashing.

SAP PAR - I haven`t built it with the iPad in mind, so that is definitely a blind spot with the app as it stands (previous versions would also have that weak spot, so at least I`ve not made things worse!).

Edited to remind folks that this app is listed under "DACF.net Forum 2" on the App store.

Yep defo version 3 and .net 2. I’m on the beta program so am usually a version or two ahead of most so maybe something in that but it’s unusable for me so using browser instead now.

I`ve submitted v3.1 - hopefully get approved in the next few hours - which solves the Dark Mode issue. The app will basically ignore Dark Mode, and it is up to you to pick one of the dark Themes if you so wish.

P - noted, thanks. I`ll need to update my dev environment to get access to IOS 15.3. It may well be that there is an issue there, so I need to get ahead of the game to check it out. I won`t be able to get round to that for a few days, unfortunately.

Yes same here on the landscape view. Never used to on the old app. It’s like everything is popping up as a side menu as there’s a sidebar button that can make it disappear (leaving 100% blank screen) and reappear.

working great on iPhone though

When you say rogue, can you clarify? Note that I`ll take a look at the iPad as the next priority - I haven`t given it any thought so far (as with the previous version, but got lucky with that, I guess!). I don`t think it`s possible to get earlier versions via the app store, I`m afraid.

Yeah, I`d expect it to automatically update - v3 is a follow-on from v1.8.7 under the "DAFC.net Forum 2" entry in the app store. Is it behaving itself for you on the iPhone?

It does seem fairly stable. I have had the very occasional shut down, probably related to images, but I haven`t been able to reproduce it.

I`ve just checked with the iPad here, and it`s.. an interesting experience! I`ll look to solve that over the coming days, at least have it "humungifed" over the screen (which is presumably the experience before). To be honest, I hadn`t expected many folks to be using the iPad, my bad.

In my defence I`ve been asking for testers since the start of December, with zero offers. Although it was on the Admin forum, which most folks probably don`t frequent.

Note that you can fine tune font sizes independently on all screens - an important feature, IMO.

And thanks for the thanks. Taken about 3 months, as I can only grab chunks of time to work on it.

Tbh, I don’t look at the admin forum that much so only caught up a few days ago. With Xmas etc, never had time to volunteer! Fine tuning font sizes is. Great addition

I had a couple of issues with the Kyle Turner thread yesterday weirdly. It’s like it locked the app up. Fine on everything else and no problems after 5 mins of browsing this morning.

On iOS 15.2 and iPhone 13 Pro. Will let you know if anything else.

Great work with the app though. Only tried the very first version when you first released them but it’s came on leaps and bounds from my memory of it.

The app was working this morning but is now not working. I can open the app and select a forum. The forum main page appears but it freezes at that point. The refresh button looks like it is working but having no effect. The main menu tab also works. I’m using iPhone 12 with latest software. Cheers Milos.

Strange one. Can you swipe between screens? I`d also try completely closing and reopening the app, see if that gets things back working again.

I`ll try to reproduce on the simulator tomorrow. Can you even swipe to the Posts screen, or are you completely stuck on the Threads page?

Note that an older version of the app is still available on the app store under Brian`s account, "DAFC.net Forum" (without the 2), though there may be niggles in with that.

It doesn’t allow me to swipe back to the forums list. My only option at that point is to close the app. It’s working again just now and allowing me to post this so it seems to be working again for now.

I haven`t been able to put another update out tonight, but should get more time tomorrow. This should solve the "freezing" that various people are experiencing.

Edited to add that i notice the action menu isn't showing properly on the iPad, which I'll take a look at also. You can still view the forums without using the action menu, but you need it to log in and access other parts of the app.

I`ve just submitted v3.3 to the App Store, which will hopefully be approved later on today at some point. That version will solve the "freezing" that some people are experiencing, and fix the Action Menu display on the iPad.

I have tested this on an iPhone 6S, 10, 13 and iPad, all running iOS 15.2, without any issues.

Raymie - can you have a go with V3.3 when it is available (I`ll post back here when it is). The bookmarks are all behaving fine. You could try deleting the app off your phone completely, and re-installing.

iPad opening up thread in landscape - but not able to post new message, or edit etc. Using iPhone SE (original version) to post.

Any idea as to issue ?

Good in portrait as well.

Strange, I’m posting this from an iPad in landscape mode. What is happening when you press the plus icon in the action bar?

Is that the icon at top right of screen ?

I was able to reply using icon at top right of each individual message.

Now that gives three options.

1. View originator profile.
2. Search originator posts.
3. Report abuse.

What’s up Doc. ?

Ah.. You`re not logged in! Log in from the menu using the "three line" icon at the far top-right of the screen.

That crossed my mind - but I can’t log in on IPad - comes up with a downward pointing arrow in grey in middle of top bar.

I didn`t make any specific fix, but I changed the way the paging works (the forum/threads/posts screens), so it is possible it has improved things.

Have you got the latest version, v3.3? That was only made available earlier tonight, and fixes that issue.

Hello Milos, I have installed 3.3 into an iPhone 8 iOS 15.2 (19c56) and in portrait mode there is some truncation in the right hand side of the page. Maybe 3~4 characters size. I tried different backgrounds and the text overruns the backgrounds. The icon also is larger than the page. In landscape mode on the phone it refits perfectly.
The typing box is very small (1 line in height) as the “Submit”, “Clear”

Hello, I`ll try to reproduce that on the simulator tonight. I`m wondering if there are font-size settings on the iPhone that are impacting on this.

Hello Milos the submit, clear and close are definitely related to font size. I reduced two sizes and the green amber and red boxes are now smaller and I have 3 lines of text visible in the dialogue box.

The App view remains the same however.

Yeah, the iOS font size setting is causing the issue - I can reproduce on the simulator. I suspect it will affect all versions of iPhone. I`ll investigate and aim to fix in the next update over the coming days.

The text/thread doesn’t fit into my screen, I have to pull my screen to the left to see the end of sentences etc.

I’m on iPhone 11 and most up to date software and version

it only takes one tree to make a thousand matches, it only takes one match to burn a thousand trees

Hi folks, I`ve just submitted V3.4 to the App Store, which will hopefully be approved by tomorrow morning - I`ll post back here once it is available. V3.4 has the following updates:

> Fix to glitches where the iOS text size was different to default setting
> Posts made by the app now correctly appear as "Posted from the iOS" on the web site
> Fix to bug whereby in some circumstances where you posted on a thread, the thread then opened beyond the end of the thread
> Fix to "Loading page x of y" text when a thread is opened
> Aesthetic tweaks

The key fix is the first on the list above, which will fix the problems reported by parsmad68 and oakley_pars. That is caused by the text size setting in iOS. Now, the app will ignore that iOS setting (other than pop-up menus etc.), but you can of course change the font sizes within the app (although the Login and Search form screens are fixed to a small-ish font size, so I should fix that in future).

Hello Milos this has updated in the text entry field but in the thread the page size is too small and the text overruns.
Not a major issue as you can always turn to landscape mode.

I tested with size 2 text setting on the phone (definitely need my glasses for that 👀) and the page still remains the same with the right hand side extending beyond the screen.
I also noticed with adding the above Emoji that the body text entry screen became a thin line meaning that I had trouble closing the emoji screen by clicking on the Body field. Is it possible to have the Submit, clear and close buttons even smaller? I like them with colour and bold but if they were smaller I think they would interfere less with the body text entry.

Thanks for all the work you are putting in. It is much appreciated.

Hi parsmad68, Now I am confused! Can you absolutely confirm that you have V3.4 (in the About screen). In the simulator (iPhone 8, iOS 15.0), I have set the text to humungous - the largest it will go (and set the text bold out of sheer devilment), and the app is behaving itself - see the screenshots below:
