Thank you very much. On my second phone Samsung Galaxy S7 with Custom Rom Android 13 SG incl. login now works again, thanks to the customized apk. I only had to disable Play Protect in the Google Play Store, otherwise the APK installation is blocked.
I'll add the link to this thread in the original mabako's sg app thread so other people who have this problem can see
EDIT: forgot it's locked, here it is for posterity sake
I don't use the app any more, but good job! This is the beauty of open-source.
Yay, thanks a lot for the work!
Many thanks, NoctuaVentus, for this fix. It is a true eye saver.
I'm continuing maintenance for the app, I'd like to rename it from "Fixed Login Edition" to "Continued" or similar, but idk, suggestions are appreciated.
In the meantime, here's the APK for version 1.5.14-beta1. It's an experimental release because I upgraded many libraries and the SDK used to compile everything. Let me know if something breaks or if everything works fine.
Changelog since Fixed Login Edition:
How about "NoctuaVentus" edition? Or "NoctuaVentus 1.0" edition? Or (if you're too modest) "NV1.0" edition?
Thanks for sharing your work.
Thanks for the fix.
Have a bump and a blue heart.
Thank you bump
another thank you bump, because i'm really greatfull for you fixing the login on the app
I'm glad it works well!
I'm testing the experimental release.
Let me know if i can help you with some tests :)
Does anyone use the "Bookmark Discussion" feature on the app? SteamGifts already allows users to bookmark the discussions they want to keep an eye on, but the two are unrelated.
For now I'm thinking about simply adding a Bookmarked Discussions section on the left popup menu, though this might lead to confusion about the 2 similar features, it does work correctly to show the discussions bookmarked from the site. In the future I might just link the two systems.
Though the app does let you save giveaways while the site does not (I think there are some extensions that do, though)
i don't use bookmarks. unfortunatly cant help you there.(bump)
I am still in the old app since I (yet) did not have problems with the login.
But to answer your "user-research" question. Yes I use both of the bookmark options in the app, discussions as well as giveaways. I use mostly only to temporarily keep track of threads which I want to check out later again.
Maybe you could also migrate/merge the mobile discussion bookmarks to the official steam gifts api bookmarks on update to new version. so you do not need to handle two different ways of bookmarks.
Get a new phone, they said. it's going to JUST WORK, they said.
Thanks a bunch for keeping this alive.
A million thanks for fixing this! This was the most used app on my phone before the login functionality broke lol
fucking love this guy sm I could kill someone
v1.5.14 has been released!
This version of the app has been renamed to SteamGifts NV (or SteamGifts NV edition)
Full Changelog: https://github.com/PrOF-kk/SteamGifts/compare/3cb361937b5b799bbc3d7dbcfda5a8cd5e9545c4...v1.5.14
Thanks for the great working keeping this app alive. Is there any chance that you could get it listed on the Google Play Store?
Aside from the one-time fee I'd need to pay Google to submit the app, the codebase is too old and it wouldn't get accepted.
To submit an app on the Play Store nowadays you need to successfully target Android 13, while Sg NV currently targets Android 8.0 and doesn't compile otherwise because of deprecated old code
How about F-Droid?
I'm not sure how that works actually
You can check here. Hope that helps.
If you don't already have an android developer account, I'd not spend money on it - whether or not it is approved is a bet, and they can change their opinion each update (as the last version I uploaded only had a minor bugfix, still was rejected).
To quote from the last email I've got:
Here’s how you can submit your app for another review:
Keep in mind the Google Play version of the app already did not load game images, if you want to remove brand names you probably can't even list game titles.
Thanks, I won't bother then.
And thanks for the app <3
So I might take a look at F-Droid someday, but for now an alternative is to use Obtanium to update automatically
Oh cool, Ive not heard of Obtanium before. I will give this a go, thank you for sharing!!
I have a problem with it.
If you use the " Hide entered Giveaways "
Then click the left side menu " Wishlist "
It will kill the app. Shut it down.
The rest work just the Wishlist Menu.
Most people don't have a wishlist of several thousand items.
That may have something to do with it.
Would be interesting to see if others have this issue.
Nope, it worked on the older version.
It also works on the " Fixedlogin "( sg-fixedlogin.apk) version released " Jan 9, 2021 Or " Apr 4 "
( I don't understand Githubs system)
Must be something between the " Fixedlogin " version and the " v1.5.14 "
Those where the only two I could download.
I didn't make any wishlist-specific changes, so something must've broken it by accident. Unfortunately the wishlist works fine for me so it's going to be harder to identify what broke it
Just to let you know that the old version on F-Droid works again without any updates. It stopped working a while ago as it logged me out and I coudn't login anymore but today I randomly tried and I was able to login.
Thanks for the heads up!
It might not work for long since each Android version increases the minimum target API requirements, I think Android 14 will not support an app that old unless you force it with adb
