Topic: Search doesn't work on android app

The "search episodes by show name" function has never worked for me. When I type in that field no text shows up. I don't quite know how to troubleshoot further. I use a OnePlus 3 phone and Android Oreo 8.1. The functionality hasn't worked in previous Android versions either.

Yeap, broken for me too

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

From the screenshot I can see the keyboard popped up, but there is no cursor in the search field.

When I'm currently testing with Android Oreo - the same thing happens, but once I tap again on the search field - the cursor shows up and you can type/search just fine.

Once the keyboard shows up, if you tap again in the search field - can you now type?

wazabees, wizard?

I can tap in the search field and the cursor shows up for a split second, then disappears again. So, not able to type. The on-screen keyboard stays up. I'm using the keyboard app Swiftkey. I don't know if that makes any difference.

Edit: Changed to the default Android keyboard and it's the same bahavior. Cursor shows up for a split second then disappears again.

Re: Search doesn't work on android app

I can't reproduce this behavior (on second tap, the cursor always shows and stays on for me), but I believe I have found the issue and I have prepared a beta version that removes the second tap (cursor shows up on first tap and doesn't disappear after the keyboard is on).

Please send me your Play Store email in here: https://next-episode.net/msg/compose/santah/ and I'll include you in the beta so you can check it out and see if it's fine now.

Cheers!
