Not a new idea

<str4d> This does raise another point for discussion - whether I re-enable the option to disable participation.
<str4d> Primary reason for it would be to reduce data usage, which is something I have seen a couple of users on Irc2P complain about
<zzz> you should have an option imho
<str4d> It was disabled prior to GPlay so we didn't run the risk of accidentally choosing the wrong initial setting, because it would be impossible to update the default for existing installs.

  • str4d still wants to see if this can be improved in any way

<zzz> I still like the idea of 'profiles' you'd pick from on install that would magically config everything
<str4d> That would definitely be nicer.
<str4d> And then we would still retain the ability to tweak the specific settings for those profiles
<zzz> yup
<str4d> So win-win
<zzz> wifi tablet, phone normally on wifi, unmetered phone, metered phone, bad old phone ←— roughly the choices
<str4d> If you already have a nice idea of what you're imagining in your head, feel free to make a ticket for it ;P
<str4d> That reminds me, Facebook released an open-source library to help determine the network speed an app has access to.

  • str4d will grep it to see if it might be any use for us

<zzz> cool. link?
