    The Snapzu Android app - I'm sorry

    Hi all,

    I'm being the Zusnap for Snapzu android app, and I'd like to take this opportunity to explain my reasons behind creating the app, and to apologise to the many of you who are disappointed with it, me, or both.

    Firstly, when the shit hit the fan over at the place that shall not be named I began to look for alternatives, first I found Voat, then I found Snapzu, and whilst Snapzu has some rough edges I really liked the community feel it gave off. So this is where I've set up my new go-to happy place.

    I've always been more of a lurker than a contributor (like I suspect most of these type of website visitors are), and I wanted to be able to enjoy the experience on my mobile. So naturally I looked for an app, but none were to be found. So, as a budding app developer I thought this was a great (but challenging) opportunity.

    I managed to get my app "working" and hastily sent it to the Play Store. It barely worked, but that same night I submitted my first update which helped a little. There have been a total of 10 releases of the app on the Play Store since Friday, each bringing updates that I hoped would improve the usability.

    A lot of you seem extremely disappointed in Zusnap, and I am extremely sorry for that, I really am. I did not create this app to upset anyone, or to 'scam' anyone. I sincerely made this app to provide an easier experience on mobile that using your browser. With the latest update (version 1.5) I have added text zoom controls to the action bar. I now feel that the app is in a position to provide me with a better viewing experience than through a mobile browser, and I am happy to be using it daily to view Snapzu. This does not mean the updates with stop, I fully intend to continue with app updates to provide a better experience.

    Again, I am very sorry that I've upset so many of you, that was not my intention at all. If the community feel that I have done the wrong thing in releasing this app I will remove it from the Play Store and only use it personally.

    Snapzu, I'm sorry.

    EDIT I forgot to mention: There is no API available for Snapzu, so implementing features is incredibly difficult. However I will continue pushing updates and improving the app as best as I can.

    The Snapzu Android app - I'm sorry

    EDIT 2: I have just pushed an update to the Play Store which removes the ads. It should be live in a couple of hours.

    Any change of an API?

    Chance*

    An API would allow for more fully functional apps to be developed much like the reddit / voat clients.

    I've developed a very simple app for Snapzu called Zusnap and I'd be able to DRASTICALLY improve it with a public API.

    I'm still working on Zusnap without an API though, trying to neaten things up a bit and add some features.

    I'm sure other devs would jump on board if an API was made available too.

    Can anyone give me a hand with Android's WebView?

    I'm trying to hide the top banner of a webpage in an Android WebView, but it's doing my head in! I've been at it for days and still can't get it to work.

    I have used the code below, to try to disable the displaying of a certain element, the page loads (including the element I don't want) but then disappears completely and shows the word "none".

    private class MyWebViewClient extends WebViewClient {
    
        @Override
        public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView webView, String url) {
            webView.loadUrl(url);
            return true;
        }
    
        @Override
        public void onPageFinished(WebView webView, String url) {
            webView.loadUrl("javascript:document.getElementsByClassName('welcome')[0].style.display='none';");
        }
    
    }
    

    This is the onCreate

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    
        AdView mAdView;
        mAdView = (AdView) findViewById(R.id.adView);
        AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
        mAdView.loadAd(adRequest);
    
        this.webView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
    
        WebSettings webSettings = webView.getSettings();
        webSettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
    
        // To keep browser in width of phone
        webView.getSettings().setUseWideViewPort(true);
        webView.getSettings().setLoadWithOverviewMode(true);
    
        // Sets default zoom
        webView.getSettings().setTextZoom(250);
    
        //webSettings.setTextZoom(125);
    
        MyWebViewClient webViewClient = new MyWebViewClient();
        webView.setWebViewClient(webViewClient);
    
        webView.loadUrl("http://www.example.com");
    }
    

    Any class I choose (not just welcome) hides the entire website and displays the word 'none'. And if I change it to try to change height to 0px, it displays '0px' to the screen.

    It's not a problem with the specific website I'm using, it does the same for my personal simple HTML / CSS website. Which makes me think either my JavaScript is wrong or there's something in WebView stopping me.
