iOS is not forgotten!

Rest assured, folks, the iOS app isn't forgotten ;)  I'm making the necessary changes to make it look good on iOS 7 & 8 :)

Awesome news!

Once that's done, I assume you plan to work on iPad version?

All your work is totally appreciated. (Even if I don't have an iOS device anymore)

Yes, as soon as I can find a good UI paradigm for the larger screen.

I'm struggling with large screen UI paradigm too, for the Android app. It just sticks with me that the phone layout just doesn't look good on a 10" tablet. If one of us comes up with something, maybe we can talk about it so as to continue making the apps as similar as possible. :)

I'm leaning very heavily towards something like Merriam-Webster's dictionary app for iPad ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/merriam-webster-dictionary/id438477986?mt=8 ).  However, there isn't nearly enough data per word to fill out the detail panel.

That does look really nice. But you're right. If all the data we put int the app is simply that data found in the Eana Eltu, it will look pretty sparse with a lot of white space on a large screen. One of the reasons the screen looks so full on the Webster app is because English is so insane, that it has several definitions for almost every word. And then it includes examples sentences, trivia, etymology, etc. None of these are in our database. We would have to create all of that from scratch which is a lot of work.

EDIT: Another thing I'm thinking about with respect to the Learn Na'vi Mobile app is... Is it /just/ a dictionary app? What if it had a section for phrases, numbers, and pronunciations/phonetics? With a name like Learn Na'vi, I might expect these things to be there. (even if eventually) Right now, it's just a dictionary, but do we plan on expanding it like this? Or should we maybe rename it to Na'vi Dictionary or something?

At least in the iOS app, there's code stubs in there for a phrasebook.  I believe it also links to NiaN and a few other things under "Resources".  That said, I've had a few things in my to-do list for a while:

- Adding a phrasebook
- Downloadable audio samples, for phrases and words
- "Favorite" words/phrases
- Possibly some flashcards, and/or a Tree-of-Voices-style educational system

My only problem is that I simply haven't had the time to code any of this :/

Did any of this work for iOS get checked in to GitHub somewhere?  I'm currently in the process of building a new database to power the mobile apps, so we should have a lot of extra data available soon. After thats done, I'm wanting to rebuild the iOS app, quite possibly from scratch using Swift.  The current build is going to stop functioning come iOS 11.

To be honest, I haven't had a lot of time to work on any of it.  That said, things have calmed down at my end, and maybe this weekend I can start getting things together.

I was sort of hoping, in the process, we could use Xamarin.  That has the advantage of being very cross-platform, not only iOS and Android, but Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops as well.  Yeah, it's a different language (C#) but the development tools are all free now.  As for the database, I'd love to hear what you have in mind for it.  Maybe I can help?

As for xplatform for Android, I'm listening. A current local codebase for a brand new Android app using Java+XML is already written awaiting the Database rewrite Seze is working on. Eana Eltu is about to be deprecated.

Sorry for the delay.  Life got busy on me.  As of today, the iOS app is non-functional for those who upgrade to iOS 11.  I started looking at the iOS app this afternoon, but its going to be a bit before I can get a new build ready.  I'm thinking just the bare minimum so it can be re-submitted to Apple for approval.  Then a full rewrite as time allows (after the work on EE is finished).

Thanks for working on it - iPad user :) I'm not updating my iPod so I can still be able to use current build.

I agree.  I'm really loving how the main look and feel is starting to come together.  I think you'll have some new assets you can use in the Android version once I'm done.  I've been using Affinity Designer as an alternative to Photoshop.  Really impressed with it, and its so cheap (relatively speaking) compared to the Adobe products.

Strange … I was wondering. I use iOS 10.3.3 but the App isn’t working either :-\

Thats odd, the iOS app worked on my 7+ running iOS 10 up to the day iOS 11 came out.  What error is it giving you?
