A RULE SPY'S IN THE BASE?!

I searched up “Lemmy” on the PlayStore and noticed that Reddit appears right before the last lemmy client in that search X3 do u guys know if there r any other lemmy clients worth trying? I randomly felt like trying all I could find and for now I’ll stay on Jerboa and the Web UI but I use Voyager too now, mainly for DMs

Edit: I apparently wasn’t clear enough but I was asking for OTHER clients that aren’t on this list X3 but feel free to share why u use an app in this list if u want anyway :3

Crack0n7uesday,

I just realized I haven’t been on reddit since sync closed down.

Yea kinda funny how I thought I would still want to use Reddit after moving to Lemmy but I just never opened the app and ended up removing it :p Same as with Windows when I moved to Linux years ago! X3

I think it’s been like 8 months since the mass migration thing? maybe nine?

Crack0n7uesday,

I think I check Facebook more than reddit these days, am I still cool?

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Oh well X3 yes u can still be cool :>

theneverfox,

It’s kinda depressing I’m not even in the list…

Well whatever, I still use my app daily

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

What app is it?? :o That’s why I made this post, to find more lemmy clients, but so far out of the 150+ comments only one has told me of a client I didn’t know of and I can’t install it for some reason LOL X3

XPost3000,

Fun fact: Eternity for Reddit was named after it’s update schedule

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

LMAO so I’ve heard ye X3 Tho jokes aside I’m guessing it was called Eternity cuz the original reddit app may be gone but the community is eternal or something like that?

jivandabeast,

50 million downloads? Is lemmy really that popular?

yetAnotherUser,

No, it’s 50 000. It says mil, which means thousand in Portuguese (and in Spanish and Italian, if I’m not mistaken?) imo it’s confusing, because Google likes using 50mil when it’s 50 000 and using 50M when it’s 50 000 000.

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

nono THOUSAND X3 I’m Spanish and it confuses me too all the time LOL X3

Boost

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Oh wait, I was surprised so many people were mentioning Boost and Sync and then noticed they seem to be the most downloaded by far, duh X3

Pantherina,

Tested Raccoon and its basically like Jerboah but worse with too big UI, missing features and bugs.

Jerboah forever! Its the most stable Lemmy client and also full featured.

Kolanaki,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

My only problem with Raccoon is that I can’t make post titles large and the comment text normal. Everything is either too big or too small because there’s only like 1 setting for all the text.

I really wish the dude who started Liftoff would give us an update or something. It’s pretty damn perfect but it won’t work with 0.19+ of Lemmy currently and it still has an issue where it repeats posts all the time.

Be nice if RIF became LIF. I liked RIF.

Pretzilla,

That dev is now doing Three Cheers for Tildes

Kolanaki,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

You mean the RIF developer, right? If Tildes wasn’t invite-only, I might have been on there instead of Lemmy.

Pretzilla,

Yes RIF. Tildes and 3 cheers is still pretty nascent.

DieguiTux8623,

Hi and thanks for trying it out! I have been working on content font sizes (there were some rendering problems I realized) but I’m curious about having different dimensions for different parts of the content (currently there are two options, one for the menus/buttons of the app, the other for posts and comments). What more fine-grained control do you think would be useful?

Kolanaki,
@Kolanaki@yiffit.net avatar

What more fine-grained control do you think would be useful?

Post titles, body text, comment text, and usernames would be ideal.

DieguiTux8623,

Seems legit! Thanks for answering so quickly I can definitely work on it! let’s see if in future releases it improves. ty! 🙏

DieguiTux8623,

Done here, this week’s development release will contain the new feature! Thanks again for the report.

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

I dunno, Raccoon seemed cool to me :3 It did feel similar to other apps but in a good way, but it’s super laggy on my phone for some reason, apparently other people here dont have that issue but someone did have a different problem so I guess we all get a different bug at random LOL X3

DieguiTux8623,

Thanks, I’ll look into it: does it happen only in some screens (e.g. community detail or comment detail or settings) or in general the whole UI is lagging?

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Oh hi Raccoon guy! :3 I think it was certain UI elements that took like a second to load, like if I tap the three lines to open the sidebar where I can log-in and stuff or the little icon at the other side to sort posts or the all/local buttons inside the sidebar, that’s all I could try rn without logging in but I think it also happened when going in and out of DMs

ProgrammingSocks,

I use Eternity because Jerboa’s scrolling was fucked up for me for months.

Pantherina,

Tried Eternity, was a blessing for Reddit but I dont think I need it for Lemmy

DieguiTux8623,

What features are missing that you would like to see? Apart from the text size, what are the other bugs you found? I just ask you to take a couple of minutes to answer, I think the project is very poorly maintained but no one’s voice has ever been ignored.

Pantherina,

Lots of dialogs where a bit messed up, for example the answer or the report one. Not sure. It was mainly that text boxes appeared on wrong places, too low or high and the rest was black.

Not sure tbh, cannot give a good report sorry.

Missing:

  • view absolute ratings like jerboah (not only the final score, like 100+ 200- instead of just 100-)
DieguiTux8623,

Ok the drop downs I see. thanks! As for the vote format, you can choose the “separate” option to split positive and negative votes:

Pantherina,

Cool!

PROTECT THE RULECASE!

INRULEIIIIIING!!!

spader312,

Sync is my favorite

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Sync does look very neat yeah :3 Did it not have a premium version or something? or maybe it did at first? Did u pay for that or is/was the free version good enough?

burrito,

The dev hasn’t updated it in a bit and it’s getting more broken for me, especially with loading certain image types. I did pay for ad free on it when it came out but I’m starting to get a bit frustrated with the issues lately.

spader312,

You can pay 20$ to remove the ads from within the app. The ads never bothered me. I used to have Sync for Reddit and that one I had paid like $5 to remove ads. But I think the developer had stopped updating it for like a year before sync for Lemmy came out. Maybe not enough incentive

Krzd,
@Krzd@lemmy.world avatar

Can only recommend b Boost, I used it for Reddit and it’s pretty nice for Lemmy as well. (Still missing the ‘mark read on scroll’ feature though)

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Yeah that was neat on Reddit :3 I think it’s also missing the ability to sort by New Comments? either that or hiding votes, I think that was one of the reasons that I chose Jerboa over it for X3

Krzd,
@Krzd@lemmy.world avatar

Comment sorting works on my end, hiding votes I haven’t looked into.

(don’t quote me on this, but I’m pretty sure the mark read on scroll is in the works)

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

nono I meant sorting posts by New Comments, so when there’s a new comment in that post it gets pushed to the top like bumping in forum sites that dont have voting :3

Krzd,
@Krzd@lemmy.world avatar

Ahhh ok, yeah, it doesn’t do that, although I’m fine with it highlighting new comments.

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

ooo like making those comments a different color or giving them a little icon so u see which ones weren’t there before last time u were in that post? Jerboa just tells u how many new comments there r in a post but doesn’t highlight them :< that would be neat! :3

Krzd,
@Krzd@lemmy.world avatar

It tells you how many new comments there are and highlights them with a lighter background than the rest

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

yeye that’s what I meant, I wish Jerboa had that :<

Krzd,
@Krzd@lemmy.world avatar

Update: there now is read on scroll!

trafalgar225,

I’m a huge Boost fan.

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

That’s what I used in Reddit! :D

btw I recommend not sorting by Top or Old in this post X3

Unlix86,

GRRRR >:C

Summit

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

ooo I think I had seen that one before! or maybe it used to be a Reddit client and that’s when I saw it? I can’t find it on the PlayStore and if I go to it from my web browser it says it’s “not available” :< might either be a regional thing or maybe it’s not compatible with my phone tho it should specify so in either of those cases as usual

FakeGreekGirl,

I was using Eternity for a while, mostly because I used Infinity on Reddit and it’s a fork of that. But it’s still not feature complete and it hasn’t been updated in ages, so I’m on Voyager now.

fuzzzerd,

What features are you missing from Eternity? It seems fairly stable and feature complete in my experience.

FakeGreekGirl,

Minor things, mostly. Like, animated gifs don’t animate in comments, video links don’t always work, etc

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Oh that sucks :< Was it abandoned or something? It at least didn’t seem broken when I tried it but I didn’t check when it had been updated or anything

FakeGreekGirl,

It’s mostly working, but there’s some minor stuff that doesn’t work well.

No idea if it’s abandoned, or if it’s just going through a slump, or if I’m just impatient.

sag,

Progress is slow but they didn’t abandoned it You can check the repo.

devilish666,

Im still using eternity untill this day although dev seems very slow progress in git compared to other apps but i can assure this apps rocks
Tbh why i used this apps in first place bc it can open redgif videos inside the apps not redirect it to browser apps

BustinJiber,

Do you remember RIF? And that time reddit forced all the third party apps to change their names by adding “for Reddit” at the end? So RIF changed the name to “RIF is fun for Reddit”, that is “Reddit if Fun is Fun for Reddit”. Good times.

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Omg I didnt know about the “for Reddit” thing, that’s hilarous X3

BustinJiber,

At some point there was like twenty of ‘for Reddits’ on Google Play. Before, you know, the dark times.

Artyom,

RIF is short for RIF is fun, not Reddit is fun because at a different point in time, Reddit didn’t want other clients to have the word reddit in their name.

Klear,

RIF is fun is fun for Reddit, then?

Still better than DC comics’ Detective Comics.

sukhmel,

I tried searching for keepass2android yesterday and none of the results on the Play Store were the app. There was one old icons pack, the rest was just something else.

Is that app shadow banned or something? I can open the app page if I follow a direct link

https://programming.dev/pictrs/image/8c4dfed1-8640-4e28-a3e7-bb7a18fabb01.png

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

huh that’s weird, maybe it’s just not very popular and u get other more popular results that technically fit ur search? That has happened to me before when looking for not-very-well-known apps but I find them after scrolling down a bit

sukhmel,

Yeah, I thought so, too. Then I opened a list of apps by that author: https://programming.dev/pictrs/image/596666ca-d547-410f-910a-20be2db4c940.pnghttps://programming.dev/pictrs/image/310ae9ab-d8f0-4911-bf76-19a4a4559568.png

There’s no app ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Suppose it’s some regional bullshit, but maybe also something else

TheCoolerMia,
@TheCoolerMia@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

yeah that might be it! I think I do remember that happening to me too

wander1236,
@wander1236@sh.itjust.works avatar

If the developer unpublished the app, it won’t show up in search results, but the direct link will still work for you if you previously installed it.

sukhmel,

Maybe that’s it, although ey publishes updates, so I thought it’s not the case

wander1236,
@wander1236@sh.itjust.works avatar

You can still update unpublished apps.

sukhmel,

I understand, it’s just that I thought that the only reason to unpublish would be abandoning an app. I was too pessimistic in that regard

Pantherina,

Please use fdroid, search for apps there, copy the source URL and use it with obtainium

sukhmel, (edited )

Started using fdroid last week 😅 but hey, keepass2android is not found there, too ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Installed Obtainium, will set it up

Pantherina,

Why not use KeepassDX? Its better afaik

sukhmel,

I do now, it’s just that I didn’t know about current state of affairs and last was choosing a manager more than seven years ago

Getting6409,

I ran into this exactly, but it turned out to be device compatibility. I could never find it in the play store on the (x86) Chromebook, while it always showed up as you’d expect on the arm android.
