Indigenous for iOS App Beta

I've officially launched the Indigenous for iOS app beta.

It's a micropub app for iOS allowing a user to like, repost and bookmark urls. There are more features planned, you can read about them on the Indigenous project page.

I have a couple people from the IndieWeb who have joined the beta. If you have a website using IndieWeb technologies or are on the new social network micro.blog you can sign up for the beta.

If you have any questions, thoughts or bug reports, feel free to file them over on the GitHub project.

@EddieHinkle excited to see you hit beta! Was unable to register with my Known website. Just spins saying “Authorizing with Server.”

@cleverdevil hmmm odd. Does it spin before or after it takes you to your login page?

@EddieHinkle after. But now that I’ve tried once, it won’t let me try again, even if I delete and re-install.

@EddieHinkle I can add you a test account on my site if that helps!

@cleverdevil yeah that would be helpful. I should also probably get a Known test server installed at some point. That’s good to know that it picked up your auth endpoint, I’m wondering if it’s an error with the “me” value that’s returned.

@EddieHinkle my site should have just sent you an invite to your “hello” email address. Just clean up after yourself, it’s my live site after all 😉

@cleverdevil sounds good. 😉 I’ll only use it for auth-ing, as the Micropub posting should be pretty fool proof (aka basic) at its current state.

@cleverdevil how strange... did you have to hit the “Done” button after you logged in? Meaning, the safari window didn’t auto-redirect back to the app?

@EddieHinkle I wasn’t really paying close attention :/

@cleverdevil no worries. I think there seems to be something off with the OAuth redirect after login. I’ll continue to investigate.

@cleverdevil The other thing is iPhone X. It should reset your login state if you go into multitasking, press and hold on Indigenous and when the red circles appear, swipe the app up, offscreen.

@EddieHinkle yeah I have done that too. Strangely, now I don’t even see my website login page when attempting to login with indigenous. It goes directly from entering my domain to spinning.

@cleverdevil that is strange! Are you entering http? Https?

@EddieHinkle the very first time, I entered “cleverdevil.io,” and subsequent times I’ve just entered “cleverdevil.io” with the same result.

@cleverdevil ohhh, so I get the spinner if I enter http or just plain cleverdevil.io. With https it takes me to the login screen but crashes on login. So I’ll need to take a closer look at my app logs to see what’s going on

@EddieHinkle ah! Nice sleuthing there 😀

@cleverdevil so one fix is I need to make sure that it follows redirects (http -> https) that would fix issue #1. Issue #2 will come from my crash logs

@cleverdevil thanks for being my first guinea pig outside of eddiehinkle.com 😁

@EddieHinkle Looks good Eddie 👍 I don’t currently have a micropub endpoint as I’m doing my own custom thing with Workflow and WordPress custom fields but if/when Workflow is finally retired this could come in handy. I’ll watch with interest.

@EddieHinkle just signed up for the beta! Wicked excited to take the app for a spin! 🙌

@EddieHinkle Couldn't resist: added micropub and signed up 👍

@EddieHinkle Guinea Pig No. 5 (or so :) ) Though this reminda me on some ral GP lovers here on microblog

@eli Thanks! :) Ran into my first major bug. Sent out an email to everyone but tl;dr there is something wrong with the build being served by Apple and invitations will go out once that is fixed, hopefully after the weekend
