From the nosy neighbor department: View number of 'Up' and 'Down' Votes of a question/answer - Android App

I want what they have!

Screenshot of the feature in Android

Can we see vote counts in the iOS app too?

  • Just to confirm that the Android version does have this feature, so +1 for feature-equality. Commented Mar 26, 2014 at 1:58

Coming soon to an iOS device near you:

Better Than Android™

To use the feature, press on the question score and hold your finger there until the vote count appears.

  • Balance is restored!

  • Is there a reason the negative score has no -?

  • Honestly, because all the questions I had looked at had + with no minus. This question is +2/0 for example. I'll look at the actual logic since browsing more I can't seem to predict how it's going to +/-. Commented Mar 31, 2014 at 23:36
  • I think the - just gets cut off if it's a really big number. Here's an example that shows both: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/220429/…

    Yup. I'll be mirroring what you see on the site. Between 1 and 99 votes, you get a +/-. Otherwise not. Commented Mar 31, 2014 at 23:55
  • Could we also get this for the iPad version?

  • @BrianNickel I can't seem to do this... :P how long should I press on the score number?

  • @ArceusMaster0493 it looks like it's competing with the swipe to navigate gesture. Holding for a second then swiping down slightly works. I'll look at it on Monday. Commented Apr 3, 2015 at 6:30

    @ArceusMaster0493 It was exactly what I suspected. Well be fixed in the next build. Commented Apr 6, 2015 at 17:59

Having now seen the Android implementation (HT Andrew T for the edit!) I hate to say it but going modal for that pains me. I much prefer the desktop method.

I decided to mock up a more consistent implementation. It's a lot like the desktop approach, but drops the up/down arrows to save space.

Long press vote area

See inline vote counts!

Tap again to restore the voting arrows.

If the devs also like this implementation, they should feel free to apply it to Android and the mobile site as well! (Not that I could stop them if I wanted to)
