Nils,

On the boss's request, am poking you here. I am a somewhat recent but very happy user of the Android app.

One thing I'm missing is support for labels, and one thing I've noticed not working correctly is the 'fresh articles' filter, which seems to show a random selection of articles, not necessarily unread.

Is labels something you are thinking about implementing (or maybe have done so, but I haven't been able to find)?

From the better-late-than-never department: this is now possible using updateArticle. :)

Also, getCategories now properly returns Uncategorized and virtual categories.

Ah thats great news. Got some time to spare this evening and just started implementing stuff (publish with a note already works, check for api-level is implemented). The SINCE-ID-thing will probably take one or two days since I need to reconsider some old techniques I used to make sure all articles are fetched but it WILL BE DONE! :D

Ah, I just noticed you added your app to the market. I actually haven't really looked at the code yet since I realized it was too far away from the concept how activities are used in my app so I couldn't copy from the Fragments-stuff. Tried to implement it myself but so far i only managed to make it look like it was before while using fragments in the background. Next step is to try to make the communication work with two visible activities but I spent several days reading about it and haven't got a clue what to do. ;)

Greetings,

The entire SDK is a mess. Fragments being a bolted-on hack nobody thought through really doesn't help things at all.

Hi Andrew,

I recently implemented the functionality to handle labels in my app, so users can assign articles to labels. Unfortunately I mixed up the request (implement tags) with my idea what was to be implemented (implement labels), so the issue is still there. Thing is, the API doesn't provide tags. Are you planning to implement this in the API? Is this even advisable to do, editing tags from within the client?

There are some other things I would like to discuss but haven't got the time right now. It's the old issue about the maximum number of articles provided by getHeadlines but it can wait. ;)

Greetings,
Nils
