I haven't been able to find my favorite questions in the official Stack Exchange Android app.

Looking at my accounts page gives nothing on them.

    I am reading this post in 2019 and sadly, the Android app still doesn't have the requested function.

Currently this is really difficult to do in app, it definitely needs to be done in a better way. For now, you can search infavorites:mine on a site to get your favorites, but this obviously can be done better.

    @ShadowWizard give it 6-8 weeks Commented Dec 8, 2015 at 18:36
  • Any update on when/if this is going to happen please? Commented Jun 9, 2016 at 12:29

    @ShadowWizard I promise this is actually on my task list for this upcoming week (I angrily stared at this link in my TODO bookmarks folder 3x today due to it annoying me using the app myself) Commented Jun 19, 2016 at 17:59
  • Thanks! Really looking forward to having this on the app. Commented Jun 20, 2016 at 19:45
  • Is this still on the todo list ? Commented Jul 3, 2016 at 19:51
  • Does who develop the app? Maybe, (s)he needs community contributions of code? Is the app open/close-sourced? Commented Jul 4, 2016 at 5:43
  • This is still on the to do list. I'm talking about it in our team chat room right now. The functionality is easy to add in, I already have the code (it's just injecting infavorites:229741 into the search bar) -- The harder part is figuring out where in the UI to put the button / if it should only be available when you already have some favorite questions (so we'd have to do the API call before showing it, etc) -- I really want to do this.

    @ShadowWizard / all -- This is my current "what if?" mock-up, it works but requires a LOT of testing before I can release it, it might go to beta if I can make sure it doesn't crash tablets too: i.imgur.com/A0pnUnV.png -- I'm not sure what we're going to add in that second nav, but "Favorites" will be there.

  • Sorry about the delay (both on the initial ignoring of this, and saying I was going to do it earlier last month but not getting around to it, I ended up being out of work for a week and a half due to an illness) Commented Jul 5, 2016 at 16:33
  • Oh, I see. Maybe, the button might be placed in the left-side menu. Commented Jul 6, 2016 at 5:33
  • @SergeySarbash which left side menu? I'm currently considering what's in the picture I posted, which ads drop-down links after clicking on a specific site in the left sidebar (or if you open the sidebar while on a question / etc) -- I'm also considering instead taking out the Questions/Users/Tags drop down in the main Action Bar and moving that into a tab UI, like we have on iOS (and as of last I/O that's also an accepted part of material design) Commented Jul 6, 2016 at 15:07
  • @KasraRahjerdi sorry for a dilettantism I meant sidebar of course. It might be placed below "Feed" menu. And there might be grouping of favorites, sorting etc. Ah, I can't find the pic You referred to. Commented Jul 7, 2016 at 6:39
  • I used this infavorites:mine in the Android app on a site where I have no favorites. It shows me the list of the highest upvotes (my guess) instead. Is that intended? Can I also get a list of my favorites for all of my sites?

    @MarcM. no point, this will never be done. The whole android app is one big sad joke. Year after the developer promised something, NOTHING WAS DONE. Not a single thing. Instead, they made whole NEW app, with exactly the same bugs and lack of any feature. Sad, right? Commented Jul 16, 2017 at 14:21
