Thank you! Don't know how I didn't see that before, I guess I was skimming for the word preview instead of button 😆

Okay yep #5 is definitely the most annoying: this looks fine on web but messy as hell in the app.

Eurgh, that looks disgusting in the android app, the link previews boxes break up the list horribly!

Come to the UK, we've had this for years

Yes I understand that, but my point is the app still lists all those subs under subscribed, although the website (correctly) says I have 0 subscriptions. In the app, 'Front Page' is the same as 'All Subs' (/hot == /s/all/hot), and I don't see a way to view an equivalent of /s/subscribed.

Comparing this with this and still getting this

Note: I see the previews aren't working there, you'll have to click 'get the file', sorry 😜

I used the option in preferences (on the site through the internal webview) to unsub all, but the app still tells me I have 10 front page subs when the site says I have 0.

I see you mentioned that this only affects the subscribed tab, maybe this is the root of my confusion but the terminology 'front page subs' seems to be self-contradictory 🤔

New user here, came in from F-Droid! I like the idea and I see you're considering decentralisation - hoping for ActivityPub!

So far I've only noticed four things about the app that bug me: - I used the option in preferences (on the site through the internal webview) to unsub all, but the app still tells me I have 10 front page subs when the site says I have 0. - I thought the thread view still had up and down vote buttons instead of lightbulb and laugh - turns out they're useless pgUp and pgDown buttons - does anyone use these when you can just momentum scroll? I feel like they're just in the way. The preferences page also still refers to the votes as 'upvote insightful and downvote funny' which is confusing. - The RegEx for your automatic linking of subs/users/comments doesn't link anything after subname: s/sub/comments/hmmm (I did see another effect in someone else's post where a word ending in s joined to another word with a slash produced a sub link but it appears that got fixed at some point?) - The markdown engine doesn't seem to have ~strikethrough~ or multi line code : appears to become inline [][code][] (edit: just learned that the 'reddit way' has always been to prefix each line with 4 spaces... Wow. That must be frustrating when pasting more than 3 lines.) I'm used to using markdown in Riot (a Matrix client) and GitHub for code blocks with the format langNameForSyntaxHighlight code();

...5. Do link previews have to break up blocks like lists?
