Cool! Why did I have to buy this iPhone...? Q_Q
I can help you with the spanish translationThanks, I will send you the english texts with a few notes, check your PM. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Nice idea! A few things I picked up after testing it out:This was what I was looking for. Amazing Feedback.
The app currently doesn't accept username with special characters, eg [ ]. This needs to be addressed as there are usernames with those characters.
The osu!rank settings interface is not so intuitive at the moment. It took a while to figure out that one must select which "Widget" position first from the middle of the screen, then Query the username, finally "Set Widget" to get multi widget to work.
IMO to make it more intuitive, consider the following alterations:
- Move the "Widget" selection to the top. Rename it to something like "Widget#" or something like that.
- Put a title next to the username input space, eg "Lookup Username:"
- Move the Query button below the stats
- Move the Set Widget button to the right of the "Query" button
This should make more sense since the item position follows the flow chart. To sum up the UI changes, see this photoshop:
The actual stats displayed by the widget needs some formatting IMO. Player ID and Rank needs to stand out, while pp is probably less important (as peppy plans to remove pp later). It'll be good to show Accuracy instead. Consider this formatting for example (I will stick to peppy in your example):
lvl 57 (80%)
Just my 2cents
[...]I was going to do this sooner or later, as it would be much prettier I think.
You can consider getting rid of the [osu/taiko/ctb/mania] tag [...]
[...]I hope to include this feature inside the next update, as I (basicly) just need to include it, if I had good backgrounds, that is.
Different Widget backgrounds in the future (If you would like to contribute to this, contact me)
Hi, nice job !This sounds odd, if you may, would you please send me some information about your phone? Feel free to PM.
Panel (3x1) isn't working for me, when the widget is settle, it force close osu!Rank (de.givepackageplz.osurank) and when i restart it, widget is unfoudable in the list.
But the 1x1 widget works without any problems , and if you need translations in french, i'll be there
We need not an "osu!rank" for andorid. We need actually osu! game. Osu!droid - sucksPeople who do not contribute to a project should keep their mouth shut. The developer of osu!Rank spends his own time to bring the community this wonderful free app. If you don't want to use it, don't install it.
Alright, update 1.0.9.The app (main GUI) looks a lot nicer now, good job!
We need not an "osu!rank" for andorid. We need actually osu! game. Osu!droid - sucksI am sorry to hear this, but I am afraid I can't do anything about the "osu!droid" project, as I am no part of this project.
I noticed that the search history from 1.0.8 was lost when I updated to 1.0.9. Any new searches performed on 1.0.9 are saved correctly so that's not an issue, just thought I'll mention it here anyway in case someone comes screaming "search history doesn't work!"Urk, sorry! I forgot to mention that I changed a lot regarding the Configs/Settings/Preferences, whatever you might want to call them, so they might get lost if you update. I could've merged them with the new system, but I simply didn't. If I do future changes to those system, the Search History won't be lost.
1x1 Avatar TextsHaha, "offending" might be the right word for this, I think I can manage something else, I won't use the toggle function you mentioned, I am no fan of this. Hehe.
Personally I find the Rank text kind of "offending" right in the middle of the user Avatar. I can think of 2 alternatives to this:
Widget DimensionsOn several phones, there is already a line, saying how much place is taken by the Widget, so I thought this might be unnecessary.
If the name gets too long you can simply consider ditching the word Avatar/Icon/Panel/Wide Panel and replace with dimensions only.
LanguagesOh well, why not. For now this was only decided by the language set on the phone, as we have a new fancy Settings menu, I'll implement this, Force English will be obsolete then I guess. Haha.
How are the translations handled at the moment? Does the user have to download a separate app? There should be a menu item to change language settings in the future. (btw I'm not following what's going on with the translation project, so dw if the translated version is not yet released)
Spam ProtectionThere will be lots of changes to this within the next update, I will consider most of your points there. Its hard to find a good balance for this, but I got a few ideas the might work for this.
There should be a mention about the Spam Protection somewhere in the main GUI. Maybe add an "What is Spam Protection" link into the menu, it'll need to explain the duration of the spam protection, how often this app refreshes the cache on server and don't ask how a user can change this frequency etc.
On the same issue, I always find the wait after I change a user/add a new widget is a bit long to be honest. Sometimes I don't know if the widgets are being refreshed or not so I touch them again, of course followed immediately by the Spam Protection message. You might want to consider temporarily lift this spam protection when a user display is changed from the main GUI. Alternatively there can be a text display eg "Refreshing" displayed on all widgets as soon as the refresh starts, so the user knows that the app is doing something and will refrain from clicking again (and trigger the spam protection).
