If the biggest problem people are complaining about for the last 2 days is that the buttons does not look how your like them to look, then congrats to the developer. You did an awesome job!

To everybody moaning, maybe you should be thankful for what you get all for free.
Giving opinion and advice is great, but make sure it reads as such.
A single picture about an undefined issue and the whole discussion after that does not feel like constructive feedback.

And for those who actually follow this thread, constructive feedback about the UI had been given before.
Obvious the dev choose to work on functionality first.
If and what he will do with the UI after that is completely up to him.

I don't recall anyone being unreasonable. From what I've read, everyone seems to be constructive ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If something does not look good to some people they need not follow your sycophantic lead and just say it's great even if they don't think so. Feedback was provided in a thoughtful and respectful way. Also, although my detailed description and mock-up were provided too late in the game to be useful in this wave of development (even if they were agreeable to PerfectSlayer) they were presented in a reasonable and cogent manner.

Now you are simply misrepresenting the feedback that others provided which was clearly more than just a single picture of an undefined issue. Opinions from multiple people with mocked-up screen shots and clear descriptions of the reasons for the opinion as well as suggestions for a modification is constructive whether or not you or the developer agree with the ideas or not. Let's not forget that at one point the inability of people to complete the donation process was impeded by the UI overlap.

[EDIT This too: There are actually common reasons to have some UI elements span buttons and backgrounds in some situations (counter to what I prefer) especially when reconciling light and dark themes, but I hear no logical argument or even mention of those things, just gripes about the input that was provided.]

...and PefectSayer is free to speak to that if they choose to do so (and if they don't speak to it that's OK too). So are you in fact, but please drop the pretenses and stop trying to invalidate the viable feedback of others by saying it was poorly delivered just because you disagree with it. You did not speak to the ideas, you merely complained about people providing them.

This is true.

---------------------------------
@PerfectSlayer, If you've got reasons for the current layout and feel that it is immutable that is certainly your choice and is fair enough. Please don't take this feedback about the UI as some kind of complaint or attack on you or as a lack of appreciation of your efforts. The fact that JudgeDread11 chooses to see viable feedback of others as a lack of appreciation for you is unfortunate, and you are not being helped their falsely describing the feedback of others and attempting to squelch reasonable input. If you do reject the suggestions I hope that is because you reviewed them rather than a mis-description of them. As I said in an earlier post which got lost in the flow; even though I think there is room for improvement 5.0.5 was a nice jump forward. Thank you.

Adaway has particularly good built-in help which covers webserver (among other things). In app: Show Help (button) > FAQ (tab) > "How do I use the webserver in Adaway?" (section).

Guys, when you open AdAway 5.0.5, down on the bottom-right is link to GitHub.
Developer has asked that issues are mainly reported there - so report also UI issues there

Search through the open issues and check if the same or similar one is already opened and add your comments there

Of course, help to developer by providing screenshots, marking problematic elements on the screenshots and by verbose describing the issue

Point taken. Had I not been so late to test I would have reported it at git or added to the existing ticket. Thanks for the reminder. That being said, typically before something is considered an issue or feature request worth reporting at git there would be some discussion about it here, which in turn allows GitHub to focus on things the that are actually reported and prioritize issues over design suggestions. Thanks again.

It looks like Quibi's casting function is being broken by adaway v5.0.5. When i turn it off it's fine, but will not work while blocking is active. Is there a way to determine what host file needs to be whitelisted to get it to work normally?

thanks!

Using AdAway 5.0.5. Does anyone know what to uncheck to unblock the Amazon app? When opening the app, I get a "Uh oh something went wrong on our end". After disabling AdAway, Amazon works again.

But I don't want to disable AdAway.
