@brandon thanks for the kind words! Lots of things left do to and lots of bugs left to fix though. A lot of changes needed server side as well, just look at the "blocked by API issue" tag on our gitlab 😅
@brandon what's interesting about this it's that it's the second time in the last two months this exact thing happens, last time it was because the sdk does network calls during class initialization(so before the main function of the app),and returning the wrong data there can make it crash apparently...So Facebook literally has the power to deny the apps of most of the tech industry to run. By flipping a switch in their servers.
Blocking those endpoints with PiHole for example fixes the crash
@Horizon_Innovations that's weird, we don't use GPS anywhere
@david yes, multiple photos at once are possible, but only from the gallery at the moment (not from the camera, or mixed camera/gallery). Hold to select a photo, then you can select more.
The corresponding issue for this is https://gitlab.shinice.net/pixeldroid/PixelDroid/issues/140
@cbush Kotlin has been a blessing for us, it's a lot better than Java in a lot of little ways. Not saying it's good, just less annoying than Java in our experience.
Moreover, it's not possible to make an iOS app without (a lot of) proprietary software.
As such, we won't be making an iOS app, but I'm sure one will come along someday ;)
@steffanieswede yes, although I'm not sure it's in a release yet. In any case, that's not really related to our app, you should ask dansup about this 😉
@steffanieswede That's OK, we can try to get to the bottom of it on here.
What instance are you using? Does it consistently do this, or did you manage to log in after a few tries? What browser opens when the authentication starts?
2FA can be set up in the account settings, but if you don't know if it is set up it isn't 😉 (so it *should* work)
You can make an account or authenticate with GitHub or gitlab.com
Do you use 2FA by chance? That doesn't work for apps, server-side thing that we can't do anything about :/
We finally got around to migrating to a GitLab instance. Links have been updated , GitHub repo has been reduced to a mirror, Weblate has been switched to the new repo, CI has been reconfigured, etc.
Development will resume, and contributions are very welcome at https://gitlab.shinice.net/pixeldroid/PixelDroid
Thanks to @ShinIce for providing the hosting and helping with the migration 😃
