Add app to right bar doesn't work
« on: October 23, 2014, 15:05:46 »
Tried to add an app (Brouter for bike offline navigation).

When I click the Add App button an window opens "Add App" (or similar) and it looks like he tries to gather the installed apps.

But even waiting 10 Minutes doesn't get me another result, nothing happens.

Other Apps also need some time since I got about 650 Apps on my phone, but they normally need not more than about 10 Seconds.

Probably a bug caused by many Apps.

Could you please fix it?

Using latest Locus and 4.4.2 on Galaxy S4

Hi,

generally ... this is probably not a bug, just an not-optimized feature. I found a way to make it faster. On my device 4x. So you'll see in next version, hope it will be better.

But I did wait 10 Minutes and no apps were shown.

That can't be a thing where I just need to wait for longer.

Any idea how I might add it maybe manually if Locus add doesn't work for me?

No manual method exists. You have to wait on a next version, sorry.

I suppose this must be in some config file? Isn't that a text file which I should be able to edit?

Btw. by looking again over it it looked to me as if he tried to gather the apps and then after 1 second stopped and showed an empty list.
Maybe the list can't display that much apps since there is a item limit or memory problem in Locus?

Hi Menion,

just saw a new version was released but still the same problem.

No Apps are displayed to select.

Must be a problem when having more than a hand full of Apps.

That looks for me as if that should be normal, since those are all different parts of the App that can be opened.

I agree with you...

Yes i know - as you already wrote

Is there a "Loading...." screen for 10 minutes?
or a empty list  - like in clip above?

But how can I find the app I want to add? Try all?  :o
I guess, that´s not what users want to see, because they want to add simply the whole app.

I get no loading, I get an empty list instantly

Yes, same as in the video but always, not only after trying some times.

Because of this I am not able to use my routing app since it  only works if integrated in Locus.
But since I can't add it I'm not able to use it.

This means it's pretty important to me :(
