Started working on the in-app review and endorse system. Players can read reviews (the chat button), post a review (pencil button), and endorse the module (heart toggle, toggles between red and grey). The number next to the buttons tells you how many reviews and endorsements there are for the shown module.

When players post a review or an endorsement, it will show up on their device immediately. Once a review by the IB Team has been completed (less than 24 hours hopefully), the review and/or endorsement will be visible by others as well.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a solid system for feedback. The opening screen looks great!

Last night I worked on copying the code from the PC version to the xamarin version for the newly added reviewing features. There are slight differences in handling iOS, Android, and PC for downloading files from server and file handling so it takes a bit of time in the importing code. Seems to be working now in all three. I hope to have v25 out in a couple days for Android and PC.

I posted v25 to The Vault and to Google Play (sorry iOS users, Apple is too difficult to deal with these interim builds so I'll post to TestFlight with a more stable beta build when ready).

v25 includes the new Review and Like/Endorse System. Let the reviewing begin :P

Nice one, I seriuosly lag behind with play/build testing, but we will get there :) . I have like 10 days off around Christmas (all combined) and despite busy RL in that time, there should be ample IB opprtunity slots incoming :D .

So serene and beautiful. The man is intense and a perfect fit for the unplugged sessions, enjoying it a lot here. Bonus points for "Neil" obviously :lol: and also because he's a bit shy and nervous at the beginning of the longer session, which makes him a very charming and likeable guy.

I hadn't seen that performance before and it is pretty cool.

I just submitted IBbasic to the app store for review (v25). I expect it could take some time before it shows up in the store. It hasn't been on the app store yet so there may be a couple rejections and fixes here and there before it finally gets approved. Hopefully, we will see even more involvement with the combination of Android and iOS players (plus PC players too).

That was super fast... even for Apple.

IBbasic is now available for iOS:
