Finally an official EvE app. Would love to have access to chats as well, but maybe later :)

Kinda find it funny that the only mail I am able to read is a mail from January 2010. If I try to update I get a connection error.

(Kinda sad when I got that mail without checking the date though. Thought the pilot was finally returning to EvE. He quit during the Incarna stuff and I miss him :( )

EDIT: Nvm, the mails got set to a random label by default. Once I changed the label I got all mails.

Any chance we'll get access to any of the new endpoints you're adding to CREST for this stuff?

Looks great, but a lot of connection errors (charakter screen didn't load even one time since i've installed the app).

2 improvements:
- can we get a "switch charakter" button on every screen and not just the charakter screen.
- Corp Mails are displayed in the category "None" - also there's no category "All Mails" like ingame, that would be great (maybe as standard category).

Update 2:

The push message has a weird format in BCC code and shows the CSS tags too.

< b > should make the text bold I take it.

Eve Minions is recruiting.

old guy use old stuff

stock android is 2.6 on my device
i could risk a custom rom to kitkat 4.4 but thats the end of the way on my old defy+
android 5.0? realy???
would be even nice to use some "old" and reused tablets @home fot this kind of app
they mostly run on older android versions

soo CCPLS would be nice to look into the min requirements of the app carefully if there is REALY a need for this high android version

yes it is litte bit of "work" but as i know most of the apps not realy need the newer versions its only some checkboxes while compiling (and maybee some RAM Problems with older Mobile Phones? but 512mb ram should be enough)

even pls give us a apk download

Da die auf Schildwall vorhandenen Informationen nur einen minimalen Einfluss auf das Endergebnis der Neuspielererfahrung von EVE als ganzes gehabt hätten,habe ich beschlossen, die Informationen so zu belassen, wie CCP sie zu liefern in der Lage ist.

As for mail :
- Why doesn't it cache our mail (load an inbox (inbox, corp or alliance), get the mail list, exit the app, open it again and you have to load it again...
- Can't send new mail to the corp / alliance (using key word "corp" as recipient or the complete name)

Overall use and comments :
- looks like a bit slow in some case (especially mails)
- html doesn't render in events descriptions (< b >, < br > everywhere)
- please make the "ok" button (and others) a little bit bigger, not everyone have faeries fingers :p (basic example: the "ok" when you don't have payment method when clicking on AUR/PLEX you miss it 3/4 times, and each time it opens the browser)
- still can't get my char sheet to update ^^
- i'd like something else than a "red nebula" background (something "lighter" and "softer" in color scheme, like the forum background wallpaper)
- why is the default "opened view" when I start the app, the last char I used with the activity feed. I think having the characters list at startup (when you have more than one) will be better than chosing a random activity feed from a random character.

I believe switching characters is also a bit counter intuitive :
1- click on you capsuleer head
2- click on switch
3- select your new char

Why isn't the switch button always displayed ?
I'd like to switch between mails for example, not having to do the three step before, and then clicking again on mails. Ideal use case:
1- click on switch from wherever you want
2- select your char
3- you are back on the "window" you were before switching

More than 3 step to do something is too much for a mobile app.

As for the settings, can we have a setting that allows us what to define we want to auto update or not (not everyone have unlimited data / good data speed sadly).
For example :
- auto update activity feed
- disabling auto update of mail (even if I jump to the eve mail view, unless I swipe it down)
- etc.

Anyway, nice app, and I'm looking forward for new improvments for it :D

Also too, that thing where you ask for a character name to validate the user because of unknown IP address?

Do the thing on that field to turn off the accursed autocorrect. Tell the platform to treat it like a password field, where all keypresses from the user must be passed through unchanged.

It's a bit slow for me at the moment. I keep getting 'connection error'. Eventually it gets mail but not very usable with it being slow and crashing.

Anyone read the EULA you had to accept on first log in?

Why do I need to accept EVE Online game EULA to use a stand alone mobile platform application?

And it seems to be the outdated EULA, not the EULA that was (is?) supposed to go live Nov 8th (today).

Also also too: That thing where you flash the FATAL ERROR MESSAGE about how you can't do what the user asked, and don't require the user to dismiss it before you go back to the previous screen with no clue about anything going wrong? That is some bad programming there.
