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.

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 – Mathieu Guindon Dec 8 '15 at 18:36
  • Any update on when/if this is going to happen please? – This is the Dave I know Jun 9 '16 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) – Kasra Rahjerdi Jun 19 '16 at 17:59
  • Thanks! Really looking forward to having this on the app. – This is the Dave I know Jun 20 '16 at 19:45
  • Is this still on the todo list ? – JonasCz Jul 3 '16 at 19:51
  • Does who develop the app? Maybe, (s)he needs community contributions of code? Is the app open/close-sourced? – Sergey Sarbash Jul 4 '16 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. – Kasra Rahjerdi Jul 5 '16 at 16:26

    @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. – Kasra Rahjerdi Jul 5 '16 at 16:29
  • 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) – Kasra Rahjerdi Jul 5 '16 at 16:33
  • Oh, I see. Maybe, the button might be placed in the left-side menu. – Sergey Sarbash Jul 6 '16 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) – Kasra Rahjerdi Jul 6 '16 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. – Sergey Sarbash Jul 7 '16 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? – ott-- Oct 7 '16 at 18:32

    Any idea where to submit a feature request for this? – Marc M. Mar 21 '17 at 1:11

    @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? – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Jul 16 '17 at 14:21
