Unhappy with version 9.0
I just installed the new version 9.0 on Android. I can't be more unhappy. The previous distribution was much more useful.
The main screen shows just the information that interests me least.
Actually, this screen has nothing useful except the information of the people connected and this takes up a lot of space. It can also be accessed from elsewhere. It was better distributed earlier.
Furthermore, I don't need to search for devices connected to the Wi-Fi network if I already have a FingBox connected and it is selected as default. It has no daily utility. The use of the application should be optimized so that the most used functions are more accessible. Not the contrary.
The information of the Internet provider does not seem so important to me to be found on the main screen.
The community icon and the account icon should not be on the main menu. Access to the profile can be perfectly integrated into another menu. The community can be useful for a small part of the users. Most people don't use forums. People who use the forum do so without having that option in the foreground. In any case, an English community is useless for a Spanish user. I think the community shouldn't be on the main menu either.
I think that the main screen should be the network that we have selected by default with the possibility of changing it as it was previously.
Precisely, the upper tabs would be more useful in the lower area as icons. The rest of the options can be included in these five tabs.
In my opinion, Fing's main function is to detect the devices connected to the network. The rest of the options depend on it. As for the display and order of the devices, the previous window was perfect and showed more information on the screen. The display options bar takes up space.
In short, I think the intention is good but the ideal design would be an improvement on the previous one. Including more options in the lower menu. Integrating some of the redesigns of the new version. Taking advantage of the screen space.
My opinion is constructive criticism. I appreciate the work Fing staff does. I like the app and my FingBox so much that I just want the best.
