I’m leaving this here instead of github as it isn’t really a bug.
Having used Poli from day one and promoting it heavily to my audience and friends, I have recently returned in the hope of using it exhaustively as my daily driver.
I was therefore very disappointed to discover some unexplainable changes such as insisting a pop-up notification is drawn over the bottom of the screen upon a quest triggering with no option to disable this. I have dug deeply into the services and activities but have been unable to prevent this pop-up. Intruding onto a user’s phone needs to either be incredibly subtle or at the very least have enough options to tweak it as the user desires.
Therefore and before I do this planned write up for our sizable audience, it may be wise to provide an option to disable this intrusive pop up notification for ‘adults’ using the app as I can’t think of any adult that would be happy with this being mandatory instead of optional.
Also, we’ve noticed that the notification provided to the Android notification draw, no longer shows the ‘quests notes’ as the subtext in the notification and instead shows a strange sentence of ‘Ready for a quest?’ This of course is useless and makes no sense so please also amend the code back to before so as to provide the users notes as the subtext to the notifications quest title.
If by chance you are unlikely to be able to make these changes and/or this app is more of a hobby, we would really appreciate what version those changes were made in so that we know which version to recommend to our audience.
Also, we noticed that full themes have yet to be implemented. With so many phones having AMOLED screens and therefore a huge percentage of users choosing to use exclusively dark themed apps - it is again imperative to provide a full black theme for those users and also anybody else who doesn’t like being blinded whilst using their phone late at night.
Even better would be to provide a master switch for advanced users which opened up every single conceivable option within the code as not everybody is your standard simple user. It seems mad to limit your profit by cutting out half the population by not providing options for user’s who know how to use a phone or who aren’t a child.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to providing constructive criticism over the coming months so as to help improve the app and therefore your user base and subscription model profits.
