Is it currently possible to upload a picture straight from an iPhone? I can't seem to find a way to do it.

(On a related note, when are we going to get a mobile BGG app worth a damn?)

But I still can't browse my subscriptions with it.
I want that, too.

Remember, there are no BGG-created phone apps. All the apps that crop up in the Android and iOS marketplaces are 3rd party applications that access BGG material.

Hi Francis - It will soon - give me a few days to submit a new version, then give Apple a few weeks to process it...

Hi Randall,

There was literally a new update yesterday, have you tried that ? Does it still crash ? Thanks,

Mike

It appears that the latest update has fixed my crash problem.

Thanks, Mike!

About uploading pictures with the app: could you maybe include a progess bar or something like that? I took me a couple of tries to realize that the phone wasn't locked up -- it simply wasn't responding because it was busy uploading.
Also, is there currently any way to upload anywhere but in my private gallery?

Hi Francis, there is no way to do so currently. Would that be useful for you? I'm currently testing the ability to add a caption on the image, as well as viewing your gallery and games gallery.

Good idea on putting in a status bar, I hadn't tested much on slower connections (ie 3G) so I barely noticed. Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

Well, the vast majority of pictures I upload go into the gallery of a specific game, and I suspect that's the case with most people.

Adding a caption would be nice.
(Although you can go on the site itself and edit the pic afterwards, well, browsing BGG on a phone is a chore to begin with.)

Thanks for being this responsive, man!

Do photos uploaded from an iPhone though your app get delayed while an admin approves them or something? Because I've gotten to the place where your app tells me that a photo has been successfully uploaded but when I check it's not in my gallery. It's been over 12 hours now.

Just to be clear, I find my gallery by going to my profile on BGG and then to "gallery", right? I've uploaded images to particular game pages on BGG in the past but I've never uploaded to my gallery so it's just still sitting empty.

Hey Rob, there's a bug in the App where sometimes it thinks the upload was successful but it actually timed out, probably due to a slow connection. I have a fix to correctly identify this error on the way.

There is no moderation period, it should show up in your online gallery w/in minutes of uploading. I would suggest trying again.

Hey Francis,

The newest update allows you to upload directly to game galleries, as well as view the galleries in coverflow. Let me know if you have any problems. If you like the update, you could help me out a lot by giving a positive review on iTunes. Thanks!

Hey Rob, the newest update will have a better error message if the photo doesn't upload correctly. Let me know if you see any other bugs.

Hey Mike!

Thanks for the update, and yes, I'll make sure to write a review.

Browsing the subscribed items works well enough, but it would be a great help to have the thread title at the top, otherwise you're left wondering what you're reading about.

Hi Francis,

Can you not view the first part of the thread title in the navigation bar at the top ?

[checking]
Why, yes I can! I didn't see that anywhere last time I checked, though.
Was I just being blind?
