Missing error state(s) for creating projects (BCX: Phone site) - I was working on file uploading from the mobile index. So I also added these similar views for when the storage limit is reached.

Failed nameless attachments on Android (BCX: Phone site) - Looks great from here. Thanks for taking this on, Javan!

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. ArgumentError in todos#create (invalid date)... (BCX: Phone site) - Yup. I have a to-do to investigate here: https://basecamp.com/1679267/projects/1682582-bcx-web-views/todos/28418341-investigate Closing this as a dupe. 2 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Add project burger button to all sub sections (BCX: Phone site) - I've been feeling the same thing. It's time for a consistent project header/navigation on every screen. Now that the app is out I'll have time to put some focus back on the browser experience. 2 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z. DIsable for IE on Windows Phone 7... (BCX: Phone site) - Confirmed this method works on WP7. 1 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Trigger pushed state for 'attach' button (BCX: Phone site) - Let's forget about this one for now. The current design isn't using a button. 1 Archive
Pratik Naik Pratik N. Convert "Load more" to infinite scroll instead... (BCX: Phone site) - Tackling this in the web views project - https://basecamp.com/1679267/projects/1682582-bcx-web-views/todos/24002764-infinite-scroll 2 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Embedly on mobile (BCX: Phone site) - I did a little reading on this. Embed.ly for mobile still requires jQuery when used in the browser. Up to this point we've been able to avoid including jQuery on the phone site and I'm hoping to continue to do so. Today the total JS on mobile is 28KB, which is smaller than the core jQuery file (3... 2 Archive

Exploring fields (BCX: Phone site) - I spent a little time exploring designs for the message composer fields on mobile. It's tempting to go with an Android/Windows style minimal widget style here. We'd recoup some space in the layout and it simply feels more modern. Unfortunately, I can't get past the fact that none of these designs...

Design UI for changing subscribers (BCX: Phone site) - That's an interesting idea. Judo could be to disable checkboxes for the people that are already subscribed. I'd actually be in favor of doing the same thing on desktop BCX.

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Adapting your WebKit-optimized site for... (BCX: Phone site) - Here's an article from the IE blog detailing (pleading?) how developers can support IE10 on Windows Phone 8. http://blogs.windows.com/windows_phone/b/wpdev/archive/2012/11/15/adapting-your-webkit-optimized-site-for-internet-explorer-10.aspx It's interesting that they're supporting the un-prefixed...

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. ~ Embed.ly support (BCX: Phone site) - See: https://basecamp.com/1679267/projects/764604-bcx-phone-site/messages/6454340-embedly-on-mobile 1 Archive

Attach files to comments: initial design (BCX: Phone site) - A few further explorations. "attachments_contained.png" is a variant that recalls the unified text/attachments container in desktop Basecamp.

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Tapping project names on the Progress page (BCX: Phone site) - Looks great. Thank you! 3 Archive
Sam Stephenson Sam S.
Mobile launchpad (BCX: Phone site) - Just wanted to say how much nicer the mobile-optimized Launchpad is to use on my phone. It looks great and it's super fast.

Furniture shifts when selecting an event on the... (BCX: Phone site) - Good catch, Sam. The selected slate makes space for the background color highlight by adding some padding, then reducing the margins. It should be a wash, but it's clear that I haven't accounted for the timestamp and it's otherwise somewhat fragile (text reflowing). I'll refactor.

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. ~ Deep links (BCX: Phone site) - Punt. 1 Archive
Ryan Singer Ryan S.
Launchpad mobile on iPad (BCX: Phone site) - Yeah I wonder if anybody uses them on the desktop. I'd bet usage is miniscule.

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. ~ Switch to standard (BCX: Phone site) - Punting for version one. There isn't any compelling reason to use the desktop version on mobile devices (even tablets). "Edit identity" is available within each app. 1 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z. ~ Identity#edit (BCX: Phone site) - Punting on this for version one. While letting people edit their identity on a device with a built-in camera may be a good way to increase the use of custom avatars, it doesn't seem like it comes up frequently enough to justify the time spent in making a dedicated mobile view. 1 Archive

Project catch-up on mobile (BCX: Phone site) - I got mine dead on at 4:12pm CT. Nice job with those views JZ! Definitely handy.

Design custom checkbox elements (BCX: Phone site) - For posterity: here are the new custom checkbox element. They're built with CSS which offers a few improvements: • They look the same across browsers and platforms. This is especially nice because the default checkboxes are awful on recent Android builds. • We no longer have to resort to using di...

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Tapping disabled to-do checkboxes in index... (BCX: Phone site) - This can be fixed when we do a custom CSS checkbox. We then replace disabled checkboxes with an inert element that appears to be a checkbox anytime we want a checkbox for display only. 1 Archive
Jason Zimdars Jason Z.
Need PSD for BCX's paper.png (BCX: Phone site) - Yeah, I think so. They won't ever be used adjacently so any minor differences will be fine I think. Thanks!

Pratik Naik Pratik N. Dont show new comment form for archived projects (BCX: Phone site) - Sounds good! 4 Archive

Kindle Fire (need user agent string) (BCX: Phone site) - FWIW, the checkboxes look like that on the Nexus 7, too. I've yet to figure out how to make them better or even change their size. We may have to consider a custom CSS checkbox control. That would give us uniformity across platforms, too. I'm not sure what's going on with that tap highlight. I ca...

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Inline scaling performance issues (BCX: Phone site) - There are tons of thumbnails if you load a few pages in and look at Friday's Progress screen. I'm not seeing any slow-down (on iPhone 4). FWIW, we did investigate this in the early days of the iOS app discussed here: https://basecamp.com/1679267/projects/781325-bcx-iphone-app/messages/3441415-ret... 2 Archive
Noah Lorang Noah L. Basic reporting (BCX: Phone site) - Tiny compared to google analytics too -- that weighs in at a whopping 40KB! 12 Archive
David Heinemeier Hansson David H.
Update FAQ to reflect email-in for content... (BCX: Phone site) - Bam! Per-page tailored bundles doesn't really work that well because of caching, though. It's better to request one bigger file once than it is to request many smaller, but different and uncachable, bundles many times.

Draft announcement: Basecamp mobile (BCX: Phone site) - I also pushed the no-app-required point closer to the front by adding it to the second paragraph: ---- When you're away from the computer email is a great way to keep up-to-date on what's happening in your Basecamp projects. But sometimes email isn't enough. You want to download an attachment or ...

Adding content on mobile (BCX: Phone site) - Good solution. I like how the buttons are all one-click now instead of two-step.

Jason Zimdars Jason Z. Announcing the phone-optimized app (BCX: Phone site) - Talked to Shaun today and got him setup with graphic assets so he can do a launch video for the phone layouts. Hopefully he'll have that ready in a few days. 2 Archive

Relative dates for indexes (BCX: Phone site) - Yup, that works, too. Thanks!

Link to a dedicated mobile FAQs? (BCX: Phone site) - “Thinking aloud, it would also be rad if we could pull a list of iCalendar feeds into the mobile app to simplify the process of subscribing to them.” Just to follow-up on this, Michael... It looks like we're out of luck. Neither Android nor Windows Phone 7 has any facility for subscribing to .ICS...

Improving the discussions index (BCX: Phone site) - +1 -- I even think there's a good argument that the desktop version too would be more useful like this.

~ When viewing a text doc, denote that it may... (BCX: Phone site) - It's possible that this will be more easily missed on longer documents, but I feel like this is optimized for the person looking for edit controls rather than making an issue of it for every person who views a document by making it too prominent. What do you think?
