Menu on image long click in conversation list to f.e. edit/delete/... contacts.
I searched a lot to find how i can delete a misspelled contact ID.
On edit contact name, the german "bearbeiten" aas ok is irritting. It should be "ändern", "fertig" or "ok".
Its not self explaining that on has to click + to find the contacts list. Maybe better image for this?
Spend a lot of time to explain and install the app to 3 more devices.
Please let one register new accounts on other servers then pix-art.Trying this brings an error about wrong name (ok, this is not really design). I used the more user friendly pix-art rather then conversations, but its still sort of complicated (too complicated for a lot of people, so i have to install/add an id for them by myself).
Completely reworking the concept of "conversations" and using the separate chat list/chat activites would be amazing. A navigation drawer is also wanted.
Hi all. I'm a Junior UI/UX designer from Goa, India. Can I help with some UI wireframes and mockups for new app design?
But the problem is I do not know German language and the app seems to be in German.
Hi @Yasha08, nice to hear, that you want to help. The app is not only in German. We have also English and some more languages integrated (please have a look into our crowdin project https://crowdin.com/project/pix-art-messenger).
You could send pull requests with your suggestions. But we have to keep in mind that this is a fork from Conversations and this should be a fork. The Conversations developer makes a great job with integrating security fixes and so on and I want my messager to be compatible with these fixes.
I'm glad to hear from you. Thanks
@Yasha08 Really nice to hear - you could otherwise help out at the main Conversations repo (But don't expect too much). In general, lot's of apps in XMPP could thrive from you suggestions, just take a look: https://omemo.top/
And finally you could even fork Pix-Art, too! That's what XMPP is made for!
Looking forward to your suggestions!
Why not make the design match Conversations upstream, but simply use blue instead of green. I find the current default Pix-Art-Messenger design very bad and this is the biggest reason why I prefer recommending Conversations Legacy to my contacts.
I'm talking specifically about the main view and the in-conversation view. How it looks in Conversations is good, no need for changes.
1, 3 and 5 - the background of this box is really off, it doesn't fit the other colors nor the color itself is anything most people consider good looking today, 5 is passable though
2 - it's very non-standard to put a button in this place, it should either be on the right (like in all other messengers) or somewhere else (fe. in the 'attach' button)
4 - the background of this button feels off, I'd go for the whole bottom bar having the same background and that background being white like Conversations does - the flat, modern sleek design
6 - take should be Take, record should be Record
Dark theme is much better, it could be made the default instead, but I think the changes I outlined would be best fitting for modern people.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
