According to this other question, we should get a confirmation pop up when trying to delete comments from within the android app.

However, I do not get such pop up when touching the delete button in the app.

Because of that, I have numerous times accidentally deleted my own comment (sometimes very long) when I wanted to simply edit it.

Can this please be fixed?

The app version for which this doesn't work for me is 1.0.56.
Android 4.4.4.

    Really?! You get a nice big and clear dialog: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/230599/… so really can't see how it can be too easy to delete. Unless of course you don't bother to read messages, and that's really your problem. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 8 '15 at 13:55

    @ShadowWizard The dialog never appeared in my case. I just touched the recycle bin and the comment is suddenly gone. – user26486 Feb 8 '15 at 17:29
  • Yep, the dialog never appears and it is enough to touch the delete button. Just tried it again. – user26486 Feb 8 '15 at 17:31
  • So please change this question into a bug report, saying that you don't get the confirmation dialog and I'll reverse my downvote here. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 8 '15 at 18:41
  • @ShadowWizard Try posting a comment saying 'Test comment. Test comment.' right in this post with your Android app and then touch your comment and touch the delete button. Does the dialog appear? I want to make sure this really is a bug by making sure we both get different results for the exact same actions. If you can't do it at the moment, I will wait. Thanks. – user26486 Feb 8 '15 at 18:43
  • No android app for me, only iOS. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 8 '15 at 18:48
  • Eh thanks @Tim, I forgot to retag! blush – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 8 '15 at 23:22
  • Yeah, I can confirm this since the usage of action bar for comments. Probably a regression, but I was too lazy to post this bug report. On the other hand, please include the app version to clarify the issue. – Meta Andrew T. Feb 11 '15 at 6:37
  • @AndrewT. Edited the question. – user26486 Feb 11 '15 at 7:11
  • Yes I agree this happens and should be fixed. – 5cube Feb 21 '15 at 7:54

This will be fixed in the next Android build. It looks like the dialog was lost when the comment action dialog was removed.
