I sneaked a tiny change into the next app release (1.8). App-details will now also display the summary text.

While it's a tiny trivial change, I'm hoping it'll make the app way more usefull. Because often summaries are the only translated text we've got. Also search results sometimes only show the first few words of a summary. Now it's becoming easy to find closure. Last but not least this will make the app and webiste more consistent.

die letzte benutzerfreundliche Version von #F-Droid war die 0.100.1
Danach wurden die "Windows" Kacheln eingeführt und bedingt durch unterschiedliche größe der Kacheln eine Hervorhebung einzelner Apps.

@Stellwerk
Hat nix mit Windows zu tun, und die suche etc ist ja wie zuvor

@rugk
Ja, ich weiß, hab die Anführungszeichen auch bewusst gesetzt. 🖼️
Was mich aber ungemein ärgert sind die großen und kleinen Kacheln für die Apps. Warum erhält die eine APP mehr Platz und die andere weniger Auftrittsfläche?
Und besonders unfair wird dies bei "Neuste". Über die größe der Fläche verleiht man der App auch die entsprechende Bedeutung.

@Stellwerk
Gibt da glaube Kriterien wie bspw Übersetzungen, Screenshots oder so

@Stellwerk @rugk @uniq Das wird da zufällig einsortiert und sortiert sich nach dem nächsten repo Update neu, sehe da nicht das problem.

Aber, vielleicht magst du dem hier folgen :-)

@uniq Perfect, thank you! I always had to use the link with way more click / taps to do. :)

@uniq Well, these texts are not always human translated.

@Zulgrib Finding good translations is not exacly easy. If you think can do it better please contribute: hosted.weblate.org/projects/f-

@uniq
Oh god, THANK YOU!
I've always been missing the summary text, because the verbose description text sometimes doesn't include the information what the app is for,

@uniq Also a big thanks from me. It's happened more than once to me that the summary text seemed more useful than the description text, but there was no way to read it in full.

@uniq
Brilliant, thank you!

Too often, the description text mutters on about all kinds of features, recent changes and whatnot. And since only the first few words of the description are visible, I'm left wondering, "yeah, but what _is_ it? What does this app _do_?"

@uniq
That should have been "the first few words of the summary", of course.

@Coffee i know exactly what you mean, I often run into the same issue
