Morning all, Just a quick update to say I'm making good progress with the development and we just hit 24k email signups!

This is great news. I have signed up!

I must say, despite of how awesome Sync for Reddit was, I think we should all try not to go overboard with our expectations of what the first version of Sync for Lemmy will be. This is testing ground for all developers and expecting the same level of polishment that an app had on its 22nd version might be detrimental to the actual experience.

We know what ljdawson is capable of, so let's support him, let's enjoy his work (I am sure Sync for Lemmy v1.0 will still be awesome), but let's also give him time to refine his product on a new platform. I don't know what is involved in the development of this new app, but I do see some points where all other Lemmy apps are struggling, so I can only assume this enterprise presents some new challenges. It is only fair to give him some room for growth and not expect absolute greatness from scratch.

I'll bet Laurence is stoked to read: "It's been 47 minutes since the last update. Is Sync for Lemmy abandoned?" once things are underway

[-] jabber 43 points 10 months ago

As someone who bought Sync for Reddit (Pro) back in 2012, I just wanted to express my thanks for all your hard work over the years. It's one absolutely stellar app, and you can count on a day one purchase for Sync for Lemmy from me.

Really excited for this, how have you found working with the Lemmy API's compared to Reddit's?

[-] Bilbyton 28 points 10 months ago

I'll being pro again as well!

Agreed! I picked up Lifetime for Sync for Reddit before uninstalling it in support for Sync for Lemmy, and I'll be popping for Lifetime again when it's out! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ Long live Sync for Lemmy ๐Ÿค“

There's a sync sized hole in my home screen and only you can fill it

[-] TheBest 8 points 10 months ago* (last edited 10 months ago)

I'm so ready to get Sync'd again

Day 1 purchase for me too.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 10 months ago

As a Sync Ultra user, would pay again. The quality of Sync is out of this world, I used Reddit just so I'd be able to enjoy a good UX on my phone.

Good luck with the first version!

[-] [email protected] 21 points 10 months ago

I'll be there on day one. Deleted Sync two days ago and need to fill that gap in my app list.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 10 months ago

I haven't been able to bring myself to uninstall it yet :(

24k!? Dang. I'm really hoping that contributes to the activity over here. Lemmy provides a similar enough experience that, as long as the people come, it'll be comparable to Reddit for sure.

One question I've been curious about: is your goal to make Sync for Lemmy as close as possible to the same experience as Sync for Reddit, minus any changes that are inherently different between Reddit and Lemmy?

[-] FunkyDuck 17 points 10 months ago

I'm hyped! Currently using Connect for Lemmy which feels fairly polished but I find myself always trying to do Sync's gestures lol. Really excited to get Sync back!

If I keep Sync for Reddit installed on my phone, will there be a way to import my settings once the Lemmy version is released?

[-] [email protected] 9 points 10 months ago

It's the back swipe and the collapse, isn't it! This is pretty good in the meantime so fair dos to the developer of Connect.

But sync was sooo good. Can't wait.

Fuck yeah! I was so sad to uninstall Sync, can't wait to have the same experience but for Lemmy! Thanks for your work, I'll gladly pay for pro again

[-] [email protected] 7 points 10 months ago

Absolutely. Not even a question. Sync on Android has been better than Apollo on iOS in my experience

Even if I use Lemmy less than Reddit, Sync has earned my respect enough for another purchase, I know Lemmy is in heavy flux, hope this doesn't dampen your efforts ^_ยฐ

[-] [email protected] 14 points 10 months ago

Sync was amazing, it will continue to be amazing. I'm 100% buying the Pro version again.

[-] MacaroniLove 13 points 10 months ago

Just subscribed to Lemmy.world because of the message in Sync for Reddit, so I'm definitely looking forward to buy your app again. Still not too sure about the differences between Reddit and Lemmy, other than Lemmy is slow, but it's probably getting a lot of attention suddenly.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 10 months ago

That's sort of a good problem to have; it means Lemmy is gaining a lot of attention. Hopefully people stick around long enough to reform their communities in Lemmy while people upgrade and add new servers to handle the demand.

This is what keeps me going. Your work is so appreciated!

[-] Rez 12 points 10 months ago

I was unsure where to move after reddit, but when you annouced Sync for Lemmy it was clear as day. Thanks for keeping Sync up and running!

[-] Dropboyy 11 points 10 months ago

Sync was awesome, so glad to hear there's gonna be a version for Lemmy

[-] [email protected] 11 points 10 months ago

Can't wait! I'll buy it again!

Can't wait!! Thank you for your efforts and I'll be purchasing Pro again!

[-] jacksonmang81 10 points 10 months ago

Only reddit app I've ever used. Can't wait for the Lemmy version!

[-] Mr_Blott 10 points 10 months ago

I had only one complaint about Sync Pro - it was too cheap by half, considering all the work you put in over that decade+

I'd have gladly paid a tenner. In fact I used to pay for pro again after I got a new phone lol

Iโ€™m very excited about this! Sync was my preferred client on my Android phones, so Iโ€™m definitely looking forward to this.

[-] Aervalynn 8 points 10 months ago

looking forward to supporting the new version of sync again when it's up! Thanks for all your work on this

[-] anthonium 7 points 10 months ago

Just take my money already! Definitely will pay again for pro version of Sync!

[-] Corey1031d 7 points 10 months ago

Patiently waiting! Using Connect in the meantime.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 10 months ago

is there a confirmation on the signups? I click the button but nothing appears to happen.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 10 months ago

You use Firefox, don't you?

I've experienced the same problem. FF's advanced blocking blocks the call. Try signing up from a shittier browser, like Chrome.
