The Snapzu Android app - I'm sorry
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.
