Mimi 3.2 Released

There was a flurry of updates as I released version 3.0 and then quickly went through 3.1 and 3.2.  The latest version should be stable however there is one issue outstanding.  The image gallery is downloading images very slowly for people on Android 4.0 and 4.1 devices.  At this point I’m not sure if it’s due to Google’s latest Android platform update or if I’m doing something horribly wrong.  I do know I haven’t changed that code since around version 2.1.

I am working very hard to get another fix out to get the download speeds back up to where they were.

        Using stock Samsung firmware v4.1.2 since update images are very slow to load. Have tried both https and http options with no difference in result. Some load fast, midst load slowly. Could it be a size issue?

    Not sure if anyone else has reported it but s3 using 4.1.2 os, screen rotation blanks out the screen. I have to exit and relaunch mimi if I accidentally rotate the phone.

      Thanks for the report. I have had a few other reports, but it’s always good to get more useful information. I’ll take a look at that next time I work on the app, but I have a pretty good idea of what’s causing the crash.

    Ah! I’m glad to hear, at least, It wasn’t just me having issues with the downloader! I was quite baffled as to why it was going so slow. Happy to hear you’re on the case. I have faith in you, Eli.

      Thank you for that! Version 3.2.1 should be available in a few hours. I just put it up on Google Play. It should fix the download slowness.

    Came here wondering if anyone else was having the same issue. Looks like they are.

    I’m on a stock galaxy s3 running android 4.1.2. Mimi worked fine until the last version or two and I’ve done no ROM updates since. I have rooted though so don’t know if that’s the cause for some reason.

      Is the app running more slowly? If so, what part has slowed down? My guess is that the delayed image loading is slowing things down as it downloads and displays thumbnails.

        It’s not really that it’s slow, it just won’t show the image you choose after a minute or so. Usually it’s fine for the first few pics in a thread. It’s like it’s too busy after that downloading other things somewhere to download the image you have selected. The older version maybe interrupted that other process to do what you were asking it to do.

          Right on, it sounds like I need to find another way to display images and take another look at how all of the network pieces fit together.
