For those of you who view ywn via your android and BlackBerry10 devices (and maybe iPhone, dont know) may have noticed that YWN has rolled out a new update for the app.
Any opinions?September 30, 2014 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1033854SayIDidIt™Participant
First explain why YW needs all those permissions. There is no reason YW needs ANY of the permissions they are asking for! After you remove them, then I will try out the app. (Android)September 30, 2014 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #1033855Letakein GirlParticipant
It’s a very clear app, and it works really well. I haven’t found any bugs yet. I just don’t see the point in it cuz it’s the exact same thing as the website! Know what I mean?

I personally think the new version is much slower. –
The bar on top is nice, but takes up uneccesary space. –
The zoom in feature seems to have been taken away. –
The coffee room is still not optimized for mobile, and now with out the zoom, it is very hard to read/type. –
I uninstalled it and reloaded the old one.
Hopefully next time YWN will make it better.September 30, 2014 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1033857Hatzalahoker h-37Participant

For those of us that have our browsers blocked for “religious reasons” the app tends to replace the necessity of the actual browser.October 1, 2014 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1033860ChaimShamayimKeymaster

Anyone else concerned about the Permissions this app requests?October 2, 2014 3:02 am at 3:02 am #1033863Hatzalahoker h-37Participant
To das yochid u can advertise classifieds and it’s easier to post then the old oneOctober 2, 2014 3:25 am at 3:25 am #1033864☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
So you mean it’s better than the old one? OK, but why would someone use it instead of a regular browser (unless, as one poster mentioned, the don’t want a browser at all.)October 2, 2014 7:53 am at 7:53 am #1033865appdevParticipant
As an app developer I must say that the YWN Android app is done very poorly. Who ever heard of putting the text ‘Back’ in the action bar? Doesn’t an up arrow suffice?
Additionally, the sharing options crash if the user does not have the app installed. Why not just invoke the standard sharing dialog like every other app does?
What is the circle icon doing in the center of the action bar?
