My feedback as a KH (after one day)
« on: February 14, 2018, 08:26:54 PM »
I've only used ChastiKey for one day, but here are my thoughts thus far.

Pros:
  • The interface is easy to use, especially thanks to the great documentation on the website. Plus, Kevin quickly answered any questions I had.
  • Creating the locks is quick and easy.
  • I've loved the amount of participation.

Cons:
  • My main complaint is that, on my device, it's a battery-killer. I think that this is mostly due to the fact that it keeps the display turned on unless I purposely turn the display off. (If someone knows how to prevent that on a Pixel XL, let me know.)
  • When dozens of people are using a single lock, it's hard for me to remember who I've added cards to, which cards I added, and to tell who was unlocked. It would be nice at some point to be able to see the "history" of each person subscribed to a certain lock, or even to be notified "[Username] was unlocked at 15:22 after 22h, 4m in chastity" or something. For now, I will probably just change my method of sharing locks.

At the moment I have data for when they unlocked and can tell if it's because they found the green card or they deleted the lock, and can probably tell if they used a key instead of finding the green card. If they deleted the lock before it finished then they probably weren't locked with it in the first place.

Unfortunately at the moment the list only shows people that are using the locks. So I'll need to include a filter somewhere to show users that are locked and those that are unlocked. Other people have asked for this too so I can look at it for a near future version.

The full history of a lock is a little more difficult and would require a database structure change and rethink so is unlikely to make it into the app until I can rewrite it all from scratch.

I'll have a look at the language used to see if there's a command/function that would sleep the app or turn off the display after a certain amount of time.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not a keyholder myself and don't particularly enjoy being one so it's not always easy for me to see the problems from both sides.

I agree so far with that.
And as i mentioned in another Thread, it would be useful, if there would be the option,
to rename the locks. For example i could rename the "hourly, variable lock, 12-68 hours" as:
"Standard-Lock", "requested Lock for CKU0815", "Special Punishment Lock",...

If it will be doable, to show a history of changes, made to the lock, that would be very cool!

Let me see what I can do with renaming the locks too. It won't be in 2.3.1 but it can be in a near future release.

I'm reluctant to use anymore text boxes in the app because they're so buggy, but with a naming of locks textbox I can restrict the length of the name like the username and you don't really need to be able to copy and paste for naming of locks. They would have to be short names of like 25 characters max, maybe a bit less.

I'm so frustrated with the text boxes in the language I used which is why I've not done anymore to the profile page and why private messaging isn't included yet.

Kevin,

Just want to reiterate that I'm really enjoying it so far. To some extent, for me, it's more about figuring out how to best use this particular tool within the parameters already set. Just trying to keep up with a dozen people using the same lock wasn't to my taste, so I can re-design *my* process to better fit my wants.

Thank you for being open to feedback.

What's up to the Textboxes etc:
The new notifications in the 2.3.1 beta are good. Thanks!
Individual renaming for the locks must not be oversized. 25 characters should be enough, yes.

Thanks for your good and hard work on the App, Kevin!
Great Job so far!

I could write a large list of problems with the text boxes. Not being able to copy and paste is just one problem which is why I had to use QR codes and haven't given the option for the user to send text codes for a shared lock.

If I can find another language to build it in again it will almost definitely get all of the things that everyone is shouting for like private messaging.

The naming of locks should be doable though.

Private messaging is very important.

I didn't realize there was a cap on it until I hit 20 posts in one hour.

I didn't realise there was a cap. I'll have a look now to see if I can remove or increase it

I believe that PM restriction has been removed now. Please let me know if not.

I'm working on the naming of locks and will get it in the final version of 2.3.1.

I haven't got the names saved yet but you can type in a name for each shared lock (see attached)

Ignore the names I've used. Was just seeing what you could type with a 25 character limit.

looks good Kevin!
I haven't abandoned any locks yet, but if you make it so we can do custom named ones that helps me keep tabs on active locks currently running.
Thanks for the PM update too

Looks great Kevin! I think we all appreciate how hard you work to customize this app with everyone's suggestions.  It kind of blows my mind how responsive you are to everyone's suggestions.

I think I've solved this in 2.3.1. It turns the screen off after a certain amount of time based on your device settings.

Thanks. This will help a lot.
