Hide warning message by tapping on the message

Andrew Heard shared this idea 2 years ago

The orange warning message below remains on the screen for 7 seconds. Does it vary between different messages are they all 7 seconds? Some are more important than others. Of course there is no perfect amount of time to display a message: too short & people complain not enough time to read, too long & other people complain it remains on the screen too long. But as a little improvement, if the user taps on the message (not the satellite icon) it should suggest they have acknowledged the message and it can be hidden immediately.

Hi, nice idea.

It will be implemented in the next app version. Unfortunately it won't work for 100%. Messages are divider into two categories.

Short (2 or 4secs), visible always even above dialogs etc. It won't work for these short messages.

Long (5+ secs), for these, it will work.

The reason is a technical limitation. Thanks for understanding.


Very good change!
