v.58.04 released with:
1. Fixes for attached images showing. Some images could "disappear" randomly.
Now I plan to work on more image improvements, maybe even create sort of "Slide show" from a Timeline images?!
2. "Log out" button added in Account settings.

Already available here: github.com/andstatus/andstatus

v.58.01 ""Background syncing and migration to Kotlin" is released (and is already available here: github.com/andstatus/andstatus )

What's new:
1. Fixed background syncing on Android 9+.
2. Fixed downloads (avatars/attachments) with redirects, in which location is relative or absolute path without host and protocol.
3. AndStatus fully migrated from Java to Kotlin kotlinlang.org/ .

Full list of changes is here: andstatus.org/changelog.html

See my first educational YouTube video about User Experience in the youtu.be/S5J8WyoX-Uk
It appears that making video about an app is not less fun than programming the app :-)

And see you as happy players having fun!

v.57.07 released with a fix for Twitter that recently broke new Twitter account addition in our app telling that a User has an old browser

@deutrino I do all of those with #AndStatus. Not an easy UI but a lot of features like those.

@AndStatus Feature request: Configurable option to automatically get note information for all notes when refreshing a thread.

You may be interested in another Open Source app for Android under andstatus.org umbrella:
Todo Agenda is home screen widgets for your Android device. Each widget has its own settings and displays configured list of calendar events and tasks so that you can easily have a glimpse at your due, current and upcoming appointments.

@gchilloux I tested #AndStatus connecting to framapiaf.org from Android emulators v.7.0, 7.1.1, 8.0 and 10.0.
I do see a problem retrieving images / avatars on Android 7.0 only, even 7.1.1 works OK.
This means that upgrading your device firmware at least to Android v.7.1 should fix the problem. As you understand, I won't create special fixes for that Android version :-)

@stux You might take a look at @AndStatus for a client that you can take with you and will synch up automatically next time you have a connection. Very handy for me since I'm often underground or too far away to get a signal.

#AndStatus v.57.00 Beta published. "Animated images and Video preview. User's preferred screen orientation".
Download from: https://github.com/andstatus/andstatus/issues/456

1. For Android 9+ only: Animations of animated images are shown by default. Both in attachments and in avatars. GIF and WebP are supported. Settings -> Appearance -> "Show image animations" option allows to turn this behavior off. It appears that currently only ActivityPub and Pump.io networks (i.e. server parts of them) support WebP and keep GIFs as is. Other servers simply reject WebP and convert GIFs to video... https://github.com/andstatus/andstatus/issues/330

2. Animated images and video on Twitter are shown as preview image with a "Play" button on it. This is the same behavior as for other social networks.

3. "Play" button on a video preview image is moved to the bottom corner to allow better view of the image.

4. Screen orientation is not "unspecified", as before, but is set to "The user's current preferred orientation", set by a User for the whole Android device. In particular, this allows to use landscape mode on smartphones (and not on tablets only, as before).

#howto use the #fediverse with nearly no internet connection with #AndStatus:
Choose in the settings:
- to not fetch images
- to not fetch avatars
- increase the time of sync
Now next time you got internet connection, even if shitty as ~1kbs you can let AndStatus sync.
Also no problem if internet connection is just accessible for some minutes.
Messages get stored offline. You can read, fav., boost, and reply to them any given time. Once you've got internet again even you're replies will be sync.

@AndStatus@mastodon.social I still don't see any "Follow requests" but at least I could Remote follow you from this Pleroma site ( https://queer.hacktivis.me/AndStatus )
