Image problems in the Android app
« on: September 29, 2017, 10:13:17 AM »
I'm not sure whether this is really an app problem, a data problem or a bit of both.

For a while, the images in Recommendations in the Android app on my phone have sometimes been to large to fit on the page that they're intended for.

When that happens, the part of the photo that's too large for the page it should be on is then displayed on the left edge of all following pages of recommendations. In this weekend's Recommendations, that happens with the image for Walking trough History (and to a smaller extent for the image for Raiders of the Lost Ark). The edge of the Raiders image can be seen on the page for Walking through History, but on following pages the Raiders image is obscured by the overflowed part of the Walking through History image.

But they all pale into insignificance compared to the monster-sized image for Clique, which is high enough to push the synopsis for the series off the bottom of the screen, and the right-hand side of which then underlies the whole of all following pages of the Recommendations!

The problem of an over-large image in the recommendations overflowing onto subsequent recommendations in the Android app has happened again for this weekend's Recommendations.

When the recommendations are viewed in portrait layout on the phone, the image for the movie "Philadelphia" is too wide for the page and its right-hand overflow appears on the left of all subsequent entries in Recommendations. The problem doesn't appear in landscape layout.

Also, it looks looks though when the image was being prepared for use in the app, it was shrunk without preserving aspect ratio, giving quite a bizarre look to Tom Hanks's head.

Hi there prl,

My apologies in not getting back to you sooner.

I have fixed the image for Philadelphia, checked the app and it all looks fine now.

Have a lovely day,

Again in today's weekend Recommendations in the Android app.

The image for the movie Collateral stretches right across the following entry for Harry Potter: A history of Magic.

In this week's Android Recommendations the image for The Girlfriend Experience is far too large for the space available and its right-hand part underlies all following recommendations.

The image for the same program in the "What's on this Week" email is also in the wrong aspect ratio: badly squeezed horizontally, but I guess it's too late to fix that.

Can't something be put in the software part of the process of assembling the app and email data to catch problems like this?

In this week's Android Recommendations, the image for Red Light/Green Light is huge, and causing all the usual over-sized image problems in the app.

Can't something be put in the software part of the process of assembling the app and email data to catch problems like this?

Just when I was beginning to think that IceTV had fixed this problem for good, this weekend's Android Recommendations has an oversized image for Flightplan :(
