Is it only me or is the devrant iOS client super glitched? I already made a bug report on GitHub for one of these issues, but I just noticed another bug.

1. Every time I post a rant, the previous draft is restored. I have to delete the previous text and re-select a new category.
2. I cannot put links into a text field. When I long press, no context menu with “paste” or something pops up. I have to type a word, select it and replace it with the link.
3. If you open the app, close it (without killing it) and open it again, a prompt saying “failed to load rants” pops up

    Not that much better in the Android client either tbh.. notifs disappearing out of nowhere never fails to annoy me.

    @Condor you’re on Pie as well, right? Does devRant and your launcher crash as well when you open devrant from the “recent apps” screen? It seems like the app goes idle and completely glitches, which somehow affects the launcher.

    @RantSomeWhere I am on Pie yes, but haven't experienced that issue yet.. most often my apps just remain in memory. I'll try on my Nexus 6P which is more constrained in terms of memory though.

    @RantSomeWhere I've tested it for a while on my 6P by leaving devRant open on it and watching some YouTube vids (although I didn't get any memory stats off of it, probably should've done that) but for several hours of it being in the background, the app never crashed, it just remained quietly in the background at best and reloaded the rant feed at worst. I did disable the Nexus Launcher on it to get rid of that (IMO) terrible Android Pie app switcher layout though, so that may have something to do with it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @Condor I might try a different launcher, perhaps it’s lawnchair acting up
