I get where you’re coming from, I like minimalistic interfaces. However right now it’s a hack/hidden feature so I think that’s worse. You’re probably right in that a mockup or demo would be the only way where we’d have the chance to agree, that is just my experience. Either I’m wrong and I’ll realize it once I’ll try to do it or I’m right and you’ll see that it doesn’t look or feel as bad. Or maybe we’ll still disagree But I’m afraid discussing it further will not help, too theoretical, too little actual experience.
Sorry, I won’t develop this. Nice to hear, that you’d merge it though I was just giving my opinions, hope it didn’t come off as demanding.
Oh cool, yeah I actually miss the “mark as read” or “to do” feature for notifications. I know there is the notification log, but it’s too different. We’ll see where things go and what solutions and ideas will pop up, I’m excited
Just an additional quick little heads up: How about having a menu when you touch a message? The first option could be “mark message as read” and next in the list the ones that show up when you long press a message. It gets away with how it is right now because that’s how most messengers do it, so people already know it. It could be better for newcomers. One could argue that you’d open the menu accidentally sometimes when scrolling. But that doesn’t seem to be the case or bother anyone in lists that have items that are touchable. Anyway, just talking, because it’s interesting. Have a nice day and thanks for your time regarding DeltaChat and for pushing software freedom.
