I have some feedback. Sorry if it’s simply a stream, want to get it all out there . iOS 7 iPhone 4S.
I don’t see a login button, and tapping on the “profile” button didn’t do anything.
I have to zoom out to see the topic list, and when I do I get weird background color issues. Also, once zooming out all the buttons (navigation menu, create topic) are still right aligned to the initial width… which is probably correct but looks weird with such a large table. Categories page has the same issue.
I have to zoom out to read the profile page. Even so, things are overlapping.
The login dialog (which appeared after coming back to Safari after multitasking… dunno, still no login button) initial size requires me to zoom out, when I tap on a field it zooms me in, but it doesn’t resize the login dialog so I again have to zoom out to see the whole thing.
In topic view the “in reply to” isn’t showing up anymore.
Scrolling doesn’t work while replying. The reply window stays in one place. Only happens when text field has focus (so maybe not an issue?)
No preview for reply or new topic? Should still have a button so we can preview what the post will look like.
Create topic view has some overlapping issues (“Create new Topic:” is on top of the title textbox). Also just seems hard to use on the small screen still. Same for creating a private message.
Zooming in can cause the header to wrap to 2 lines, overlapping the title a bit (because the buttons and the logo fight it out for the same line)
Edit history is unreadable. I can’t zoom out to see what is going off the right hand of the screen. I can’t close it, since the close button is off the screen as well. Tapping in the faded part at the top doesn’t dismiss it.
Can’t scroll the search results when clicking “show more”
Landscape does some very weird stuff. Here is the profile page, after I zoomed out:
You can still drag the “handle bar” to make it smaller. Plus you can zoom out, which gives you white space. I agree though, when you don’t have text focus, you can scroll just fine, so I think it’s good.
compare against. I mostly use it for quick reading and such, and the stock
browser is a lot better for me since it opens quickly. Chrome always lags
when I open it, and then lags whenever I do anything else.
Discourse mobile isn’t too bad on this phone, performance-wise. Certainly
not fast, but I haven’t had a reason to complain.
We thought about that, but the current version of Android Firefox also shows the same 3x-4x worse than iOS perf. It’s not technically specific to Google Chrome, but I wondered if there was something magical about the old default browser.
If you have an iOS device, try it side by side on Discourse. The difference is really stark. It ain’t subtle.
