I would give up devices before joining the apple cult.
The Blackberry keyboard was one of the things I hated most. That and the fact that in order to reboot the device you had to take the back off and remove the battery. Low tech all the way, baby!Really? I still miss my Bold at times, the best of the three Berries I carried for work before we switched to Android. Not that I dislike the Samsung Galaxy S phones I've been packing for the last five years or so, but touch screens and I have never got on very well compared to the BB thumbboards.
We use an MDM that works with Samsung Knox security to lock things down. Forces encryption, lets us control apps and push apps, manages mail flow similar to BES, provides a VPN for data connectivity to our corporate systems. Android can be secured, just takes more work. After all, the last generation of Blackberry phones made by TCL ran a Blackberry shell over Android.I find it curious that you would move from the most secure device to the least secure but people have all sorts of reasons for their personal choices and it's nice to have options.
Shutting down discussion, with a promise to improve, but delivering nothing over 12 months later. That's a whimsical hope I would think.It's well over a year old, so I hope that this is still true.
and Blackberry is making a comeback in 2021: https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/blackberry-5g-1.5692088So do I! Almost as much as I used to hate Blackberry.
Source:Joel R said:I can tell you that since IPS started conducting code audits, there have absolutely been cases where developers were not only delisted, but forcefully removed due to serious breaches. So yes, less developers.
Those same devs are actively selling in other ecosystems. You can keep them, and their variety, and their competition; we don't want them back.
Out of all the things you listed, you skipped over the two factors that matter the most to serious community owners: trust and quality. That only comes from having a curated, managed marketplace. And if that means the lowest subset of files and developers get removed, thats a trade off any Invision client is willing to make.
No, not a liar or dishonest. I have no doubt you had, and have, plans. My skepticism is on whether any of those plans will become outcomes within another 12 months. The 3 years ago locked thread (@Alpha1 posted on previous page) demonstrates this is not a new issue or customer complaint, and there's many other threads discussing, or being impacted by, poor 3rd party add-on's and developers with minimal, if any, reliable methods for customers to gauge quality or responsibility. To say it's a very small minority is, IMHO, denial at the impact this causesI perhaps understand the skepticism but then you're perhaps calling me a liar, but I wouldn't understand what would give you the impression that I would be dishonest.
The owner of a competing company being snarky isn't unexpected, the main topic being discussed in that thread by contrast is a bit surprising and is annoying a few of their own customers.
TLDR for anybody else, IPS is changing how their "marketplace" works to prevent customers from downloading marketplace 3rd-party add-ons directly, instead you have to associate your install to a license (yes, even your localhost test installs) and then install the 3rd-party add-ons via the Marketplace within the IPS ACP. A 3rd-party vendor disappear on you and you want to update the code yourself? Too bad. You normally do test installs on a localhost that might not even be connected to the net? Too bad. Your normally have your own guys do a code review before installing on your production server? Too bad. If any vendors choose to allow direct purchases from them, instead of going through the IPS "marketplace", then you're good to go but IPS is really wanting vendors to go through them.
In the long run IPS really is moving themselves towards the closed paywall garden model of Apple along with their own app/marketplace store. It's just too bad I can't give away my IPS licenses even if I wanted to.
There have been more than a few events which gave me the impression that they read the XF suggestion forums even more than the XF team themselves.
Any index. Media index, category index, album index.It seems the lightbox itself is restricted to load just from the gallery index.
We have, for several years, already got a way of navigating from media item to media item with the built-in film strip. The lightbox adds very little benefit when you're already viewing the full media.You can't even load it from the individual media page
You can react through the lightbox, so that's an unfounded comment.or react or do other basic stuff from within the lightbox
Such as? You can do almost if not everything.The comments within the lightbox are going to change slightly which should mostly complete the experience.or do other basic stuff from within the lightbox
