Solo Learn app change request: cache work/ composition on app interrupt

Solo Learn work in process is lost of the user's session is interrupted (Android app). Recommend interrupt process code to save work in draft form. MANY TIMES I have lost work that I was in the process of composing of there is an external event/ interruption on my Android device that steals the focus. Request a change to push any screen composition into a draft file, noting the content of the current screen, the forum/board / function that the user is in, and date-time, etc. I return to app, inform the user that a draft exists and all of the user wishes to open and continue.

You can send this through in app Feedback feature, or alternatively you can send them by e-mail info@sololearn.com I'm developing a habit to copy whatever it is I'm working on to clipboard just to be on the safe side. But honestly, the app has grown better in stability compared to its older versions. At least the Playground is not as unstable as it used to be.

JoeSponge As for me, in mobile, built-in keyboard, got swipe feature too, but I'm not comfy with that ­čśü Better draft outside the app I guess, then copy it off when you're done XD

Ipang , understood, but... This is a handheld Android device... It's not really meant for a writing / editing platform. That's not what I would normally do on here - but that's where the SoloLearn platform lives. If I have to compose in a separate app and then transfer, then I will eventually stop using it for that. But I will submit that to the developers. That didn't occur to me, this app BEING a development/ programming app. :-D

JoeSponge True about mobile, productivity speaking, I hardly find one who can type with more than two fingers (thumbs mostly), and screen size of course is another matter. However, I admit that most people nowadays carry their phone/tab everywhere, while interaction with full sized computers/laptop are limited at workplaces. And though rare, I have seen people writing lengthy codes on mobile. Don't know whether they use external keyboard or something to cope with default software keyboards, but they did it.

Ipang For me, it's a Swiping keyboard. Swype - which I picked up as a trial. I prefer it, even tho' it's been dead for a couple years, but I can still find it hidden in the app store. I can do just about everything I need - though not extremely fast -- right up until there's an interrupt, and my work gets discarded. Several apps handle it well, but a couple have had me swearing under my breathe, after a 10 composition gets dumped. :-D
