According to the Android app, these are the five most recently active questions on RPG.SE:

all the timestamps are those of the questions themselves

(Here they are: 1 2 3 4 5)

The time stamps on all of these, though, are wrong. These have all been active in the last seven hours. Take a look at the full site:

the time stamps are ok on the full site

Scrolling down a little, some of the other questions are... better.

some of these are ok

(6 7 8 9)

I've noticed this pattern but I'm not 100% sure it's absolutely the cause:

  • In most of these cases, the most recent activity was an edit.
  • Most of the incorrect timestamps are the timestamps of the questions themselves. The exception is in question #5 above, where the most recent activity was an edit on the question, and the timestamp is the most recent answer.

Is the Android app ignoring edits in its timestamps?

  • The application is currently only using the creation date of a question for that field rather than also using the edit date and those of answers, great catch! This will be fixed soon. Feb 10, 2014 at 15:01

As of version 1.0.9 the application correctly uses the last modified date of questions for showing the timestamp in all lists rather than the creation date, thank you!
