Update:

It’s been over 26 days since the promise of initiating work on the new version, yet there hasn’t been any tangible progress. The last update occurred more than 10 months ago, signifying a significant hiatus. But what’s causing this delay?

At the onset of the year, a sense of fatigue set in, leading to a diminished interest in advancing Instander. Consequently, attention veered towards other ongoing projects. However, as time progressed, enthusiasm for revamping Instander resurfaced. This time around, the aim was to ensure that the update would be robust, incorporating newfound knowledge and skills. Consequently, the process is taking longer than anticipated as I’m essentially overhauling the entire codebase. This entails eliminating redundant segments, updating to a newer framework, and enhancing overall performance. These endeavors are geared towards bolstering the app’s stability and facilitating the incorporation of new functionalities.

Presently, only 25% of the envisioned modifications have been executed. Given my penchant for perfectionism, I often find myself revisiting previously written code, striving to optimize it further. This meticulous approach contributes to the extended duration of the update.

Completed tasks include:

  • Enhancing the app’s structural integrity.
  • Refining the mechanism for media downloads.
  • Upgrading the settings menu.
  • Enhancing the functionality of Insider Verify.
  • Implementing numerous minor yet crucial tweaks aimed at enhancing user experience.

Currently, efforts are focused on developing a new feature termed “In-App Update.” This addition holds significant relevance as it is poised to streamline the update process, potentially resulting in more frequent and seamless updates directly from within the app.

However, certain pending tasks include:

  • Downsizing advertisements.
  • Incorporating additional gesture controls.
  • Introducing the Ghost Mode feature.
  • Enhancing the visual aesthetics of the app.
  • Designing a new theme.
  • Implementing a comments menu.

As for an estimated completion date, it’s challenging to provide a definitive timeline given the extent of pending tasks. Rest assured, efforts are ongoing to expedite the process and deliver a comprehensive update in due course.
