All Streams Only option

  • Idea
  • Updated 3 years ago

I'd like to see the option of only viewing the "All Streams" column, as this is what makes the app unique. I don't really need the other (in my case, 5) columns taking up space and processing speed.

I'm glad to see this idea come up, as I've heard one or two other people suggest it in-person. Would you imagine, then, that the AllStreams view would take up the whole width of the screen, and that the other streams would disappear completely, making the app not scroll left/right?

What about bookmarks? It seems to make sense to keep the Bookmarks stream, despite being All Streams Only...

I think my most-preferable setup would be three columns of posts in the "All Streams" section (with swiping only bringing up Bookmarks, etc, as mentioned below)--the main body of the screen looking pretty much the same as now with posts appearing in a loose 3-by-3 grid of sorts (most recent at upper left and continuing backwards to the right and then to the next row down etc).

I definitely think the Bookmarks tab should stay--maybe even as an 'off-screen' swipe-left page type deal? Or part of the Accounts menu itself from the swipe-right page. Or maybe even a setup where the All Streams takes up 2 columns worth of space and the 'third' column shows bookmarks.

Well, what we have to keep in mind here is that this is a universal app. It sounds like you're describing the iPad experience, but on the iPhone it would not be able to work in this way. In any case, I think I understand what you're looking for and we'll take a pass at it :)

Another idea would be to specify number of columns used for all stream which would then push the others off the screen

I've coded a feature that let's you turn on "All Streams Only" in the settings. Here's a screenshot.

We have it slated for the 1.5.0 release right now (1.4.0 was already submitted to Apple for review, unfortunately) so it's a couple weeks away from going live in the AppStore.
