I just found out that we can do more than only down vote the review:
You can mark the review as spam, exactly we rate it to what it is.
you can do so via the three dot menu of the review.
Please sort the reviews with "newest" to find the bad review Marcel is talking about
If you want to manually check for updates, you can long press 'About' in the navigation menu.
Good idea!Somebody long pressed the trash bin icon and confirmed the permanent deletion and now leaves a 2 star rating for this. I think I am going to remove all these extra features and change the appearance of the app to let it look like the Gmail app. I think there needs to be ads and tracking too and support should be limited to standard answers and ignoring. That's what people expect after all.
Two things Marcel
Imagine that you are working on a hard to implement feature and that you in the meantime receive a series of unfair complaints. How would you feel? It is easy to say to just ignore, but I am not a robot.Marcel you really need to try and focus on the positive instead of the negative.
You won't be able to please everyone and there will always be some haters for no good reason too.
Despite some negative reviews by far the overwhelming amount of reviews are positive, with 4 and 5 star ratings.
I think you will be more fulfilled if you can try to accept that most people are unbelievably happy with FairEmail, with your work and attention, and with your support
Thank you for all that you do for us and the android community
Once the app is installed, it immediately takes you to a page to allow complete access to all of your phone and to create an account. If you refuse just one, you won't be able to bypass the screen of launching the app. Why must the app need access to my contacts, draw over other apps, and ignore my phone's setting for battery usage? Worthless.
Of course, for someone who doesn't want to learn about the background and benefits, it's all worthless. We can be glad that he/she no longer uses FE. And it's a pity that we, as a knowledgeable user community, can't respond to such stupid remarks ....
Very well said!!
So sorry about all that... It's hard to see people complaining when you've put so much work into something. And no, it's not easy to ignore.
Why should every app include those emojis??? It would be better if Google downloaded it via play services once and stored it for the whole system and for all apps to use.FairEmail will be 10 MB bigger because Google forces apps to include emoji. This is the policy:
The alternative is worse: let the app download the emoji on demand from Google's servers.
As a comparison: the app is about 20 MB now.
I am pretty shocked by this monopolistic dictating behavior of Google.
I've added multiple select for local contacts to my to do list, but this will be low priority.Sometimes, I go through the local contacts list within the app and clear some of the unnecessary addresses and also to rename some contact names. As I marked "add senders of incoming mails to the contact list", some addresses like [email protected] and [email protected] are added too. So I would like to suggest:
1. being able to long-press mark multiple contacts after searching and bulk-deleting them
2. never adding no-reply addresses to the contacts*
3. adding an option for an account-independent contacts and frequency count such that the same contact doesn't have to be added x times for x accounts but only once
* This one may however cause troubles if a noreply address was marked as "not Spam", I think, so such addresses would need to be an exception and added to the contacts
What you can do is long press on a local contact and mark it as "never favorite". This way the contact will never be used for suggestions, etc.I can see that and that's why I was speaking of adding an option (e.g. a toggle) while the default behavior remains the same as that's what people are used to now.
Also, an account-independent contact list should be slightly more efficient in terms of retrieving but especially in terms of memory and disk usage. Though probably more of a theoretical rather than a noticeable improvement for the end user.
