Thanks, glad you like it!

Valentine Z wrote:So far, I think it's great. Just a couple of points, nothing major:

- Stats cannot be sorted in A-Z in rankings.

Hmm, I've been thinking of adding a "Sort by: alphabetical" checkbox to the dialogue (which will override whatever option you have selected), but I felt it would be out of place. I could try looking into that again.

This will be fixed in the next update to match what NS does in game.

A question for you, Greater Tern. If we added some API endpoints that required reCAPTCHA but allowed a mobile client to perform restricted actions without HTML scraping, would this be useful to you?

Any other related thoughts?

Based on the Google Play reviews, I think that you should specify that you do not operate NationStates, and are meerly a platform for it. It seems to me that many discovered NS through Stately and would not have known about it otherwise. I know, it says unofficial app for NationStates, but...

ALSO, when you have the trends page that says highest and lowest quips per hour (under intelligence, for example) could you please maybe put current

Not sure how other devs feel, but I probably wouldn't use an API restricted by reCAPTCHA, mainly because the development overhead for maintaining the Android reCAPTCHA library would be the same if not greater than keeping the existing HTML scraping logic. I can see why you'd want to restrict those actions with reCAPTCHA, though.

I mean, if people aren't gonna read the current description, they're probably not gonna read any other warnings I add there. For the reviews (and the occasional telegram) that I get about NationStates itself, I usually just explain that I don't actually control the site in any way.

If you're referring to the current value of each census stat, that should be displayed on the top-right corner of the graph card.

Stately 1.10.2 is now available on Google Play, the Amazon Appstore and GitHub. This update brings several improvements to censuses in the app, such as support for Average Disposable Income, alphabetical sort and trend graphs extended to two years. There's also some visual improvements to the WA and World pages.

Feedback is welcome as always!

Using the latest version now. Thanks for the wonderful update, it's great! :D

I understand the trend graph can only be extended to two years, because that's from the website itself, not the app-limitation. Seems like the trends are only kept since ~ Feb 2016.

Yes, that was when the issues system received a huge overhaul (and more detailed recording of stats began as a result). The first date stored is Feb 28, 2016. The main trend graph does have data from before that, but it's undated.

It's a wonderful app, and has saved me numerous times when I didn't have access to my laptop. I salute you!
Just a question, is implementing a Factbook segment to the app implausible?

Glad you find it useful! Factbook support is something I'm looking into, but it's hard to build something from scratch that can render something like this factbook on mobile.

Ooh yeah, another suggestion: Would it be all right for you to implement a y-axis zoom for the stats? The x-axis zoom is great to see certain periods of time, but the small changes in the stats can make the chart look pretty flat.

I can look into it.
