Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have some generic feedback:

  • "sign in with other OpenID" page could do with something saying "loading", preferrably in the ActionBar. Also the login buttons should be listed vertically instead of horizontal.
  • Notifications should work like another sliding drawer. Google said to basically copy the Google donation app for this
  • Can you replace Pull to Refresh with
  • I would reconmend changing some of the app branding based on the site, for example the ActionBar colour
  • I don't know if it's implemented, but GCM push for notifications would be nice (along with expanded notifications for these)

Overall, it feels fairly nice

Just as a heads-up, GCM push notifications already exist in the app. Regarding the pull to refresh suggestion, I can see where you're coming from seeing that it's the actual successor of the one we're using in our app but I don't think we'll be integrating a preview build library at the moment. – Kasra Rahjerdi Aug 22 '13 at 17:07
I don't like the loading screen. Can you get rid of that? – Joe Simpson Aug 22 '13 at 18:05
Also can you remove the modal ProgressDialog's? – Joe Simpson Aug 22 '13 at 18:05

Thanks for the feedback! Most of these things are on our radar:

  1. Redesigning the "Sign in with OpenID" path is planned.
  2. Notifications will work like the drawer, we just haven't gotten to it yet.
  3. We're thinking about changing the Pull to Refresh library, but it's low priority since what we have works for now
  4. We've redesigned the feed to make the sites more visible. I'm not sure we want to change the overall look-and-feel for each site in the app, so probably no actionbar color changes.
  5. GCM push notifications should be working for anything that shows up in your inbox. If you're not getting them, it's a bug.
