Heya!

After a while in developement, we finally decided to release the mobile notifier! :D

Features:
- Last 10 posts can be viewed from the app.
- Images are also displayed in the app
- most bb tags are also parsed
- Double tap a post to open it in the browser.
- Service sending a push-notification when a new posts is made.
- Changable time between update checks.
- Enable / Disable service.
- Enable / Disable mobile data used to check for updates.

Known bugs:
- There is a bug in android 4.4.2 where it doesn't restart services, which kills the service instandly :( (at least thats what i think it is)
- You tell me :)

Not yet implemented
- Smileys (that means walrii too :()
- Links in posts. [ url] [ /url] tags work though
- WIRC??? (Maybe)

screens: ShowHide








Source
The source can be found at https://github.com/QuantumInfinity/CodeWalr.us-Post-Notifier

Download & Install
You can download the apk from http://quantuminfinity.space/files/Walrifier.apk
Initially i wanted to put the app on the play store too, but i don't know if thats a good idea.
You have to enable 'install from unknown locations' in your settings, but that get's prompted by android automatically

If you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions please let me know :)

Awesome! I am installing it right now. It looks very nice on my phone and I like the Walrii page refresh background. :) I'll check if notifications works now.

So some basic thoughts. Add an option not to automatically search for posts. Use back to switch to previous tab. Other than that pretty good.

Ok so I tried it and notifications work! :D But I think the :walrii: icon could be improved so that everything that is supposed to be black is actually transparent, rather than just the outline. Otherwise the icon kinda looks weird. To see what I mean, it should look like the first icon below rather than the second current one:

Awesome! I sadly don't have an Android phone, but I'm gonna try it out in a emulator!

I just got another idea in the other notifier thread: What about a setting where you can enter member IDs, separated by commas, so that for example, if I entered ID #1 it ignored my posts? That way, I don't get notified of my own posts. Of course, people would probably be able to use it to ignore posts from specific users or boards, which might not necessarily be good, but I guess that could be handy if the forum got super busy at one point and some new members were obnoxious (although they would get punished eventually, but that can take a few offenses before they do, depending of how active they are)

Snektron

Hmm yeah that might be a good idea. Maybe i can have some sort of 'username' setting too.. Il go see if theres a tapatalk api or something for authentication :)

DJ Omnimaga

Login would be an alternative, although not necessary unless you decided to implement the ability to use WalrusIRC and posting (which are kinda obsoleted already by our mobile theme)

Snektron

Hmm.. I could also upgrade the plugin at one point, so it allows entering of username instead of id and does a small lookup. Anyway i'll see, the next few weeks are going to be very busy for me and i'll won't have much developement time :/

Yep, gotta try that out. Is it going on Google Play, F-Droid or some sort of Android repo?
