    Treeleaf App online for testing and commenting

    Hi everyone,

    The yet to be named Treeleaf-Jundo-Quote-App is available for testing. This is a browser version (beta 1), if we're all happy with it I'll turn it into a proper app for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone.

    Please take a look and let me know what you think, and be frank about it. If it's crap, I want to know
    Is it clear enough? Should things be different? Any comments are welcome.



    Thanks!

        Hi Ongen,

        Looking great! I love the use of the Treeleaf colors and open space.

        One minor "under the hood" quibble: in the current version, the XMLHttpRequest() for app/quotes.txt is running on every tap. I'm not sure if the final version will share code from this (or will even load from the network), but if so, I think it would be more efficient and allow for better error handling to load the quotes at runtime, and then pick one on the tap event.

          Hi Ongen,

          nice, clean app.
          I have been playing around with it for some time.

          "Beautiful and ugly, in a Buddha's eye" and the next click reveiled only "take x breaths".
          Are those meant to be separate, so sometimes no words of wisdom, only "breathe" (good too)?
          Otherwise ther might be a bug?

          (Or it was Shingen talking to me, telling me to stop playing with apps... )

          Thank you for your work.
          Gassho,
          Danny

            Hi.

            Just a question, why is the Treeleaf logo Big and the text small, shouldn't it be the other way around?

            otherwise, nice app, Its all good practice.

            Thank you for your practice

                Hi Ongen!

                It looks great. It's simple and clean.

                I'll be playing with it and post here if I have any comments.

                Thank you for this.

                Gassho,

                        Hi Sekishi,

                        The quotes.txt file will be inside the app for now, so it will function completely offline at this moment. We can update the quotes through an app update. I feel that it has no use making an elaborate online quote management system with remote fetching of quotes before we know if the app is widely appreciated.

                        Still you are right, I will see if I can get it a bit more streamlined

                          Hi Fugen, I don't think I can get the text bigger without it starting to look awquard, but I can make the logo smaller. Will see how that works out.
                          Thank you

                            I just want to thank all our members who supplied quotes. We could not use them all, and we had to shorten many into a single phrase. but I believe we included most of the folks who had a suggestion.
