Title images
If you are a server admin, please send me (pm or mail) the server login(s) and the related maniaflash channel where users can get relevant information about the server(s) and the clan/team/funtag/group or how you want to call it. I will use this information (when I have enough) later to get it in the app and make some awesome things from it.

If you are a title owner and you want to have a nice icon for the servers with the title, please send me a logo and a nice screenshot of the gameplay (pm or mail).

FAQ

The login isn't working
Android: Try to clear the data and cache in the Android Application menu in Settings. Then start the app again.
iOS: Try to skip the login step and then retry to connect in the Settings tab.

All: If this won't help you can also try to revoke the Authorization (only when you already logged in once, but it doesn't do anything). Login at the player page (player.maniaplanet.com) and go to Account -> Authorization. Then press the Revoke button where ManiaPlanet Toolkit is.
If this still doesn't help, please PM me, maybe there is something more wrong ^^.

Why do you need so much permissions
I want to give you as much information as I can get, atleast, not everything. Like the online status, I will use that later, but to get it working then it's better to already get the permission so we can get it working without any more steps to do except for updating the App. And I need offline access to get the access to the data again later and you don't have to reloggin.

How to activate the widgets
To activate the widgets on iOS
Swipe down, open the notification center and go to the 'Today' tab. Click edit and add the widgets there.

To activate the widgets on Android
On the desktop/home screen of Android, hold down long on a empty space. Click on Widgets. Search for the widgets and hold it to place it.

The current vision is to focus more on other projects, thats why I just removed the app from the App Store and Play Store. Current users can still use it but new users can't download it anymore. Hopefully you will understand my choice.

This looks like a great project :1010
I have Android so i can't test it but nevertheless i got some suggestions:

- Login with your Maniaplanet account and view server with buddies
(next step would be posting things in Maniahome or sending messages to buddies like it's possible on the Player Page, but i don't know if somthing like this is possible)

- Servernames/Playernames with colours

Keep on your work :thumbsup:

Login with MP Account should be possible to make, then it's also nice to "import" the favorite servers from the player. Publishing posts can be nice too. Put it on to-do. Done

Should be possible... Ill put it on the to-do list. Done

Thanks, toffe.

Did some updates today, take a look at the new screenies.
Reworked rankings, now called rankings (nice ha). You can also see top 100 of rankings of World/Continent/Country your in. And the position you are off course.

I would like to release it soon.

Really ambitious project and I like it!

Although I appreciate your effort for this project, I do not think that it would be useful for everyone in Maniaplanet. It's mainly interesting for server hosters who want to take a look if their servers are populated. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be very useful for players because you only take a look on the server-list if you would like to play. And this can't be done via a smartphone, not yet at least :)
There are some great things for players though such as showing the rank stats or taking a look on the news. If you are a creator and you would like to share some stuff, you can easily do it with the Maniaflash-channel.

I haven't got any suggestions yet, but try to make it more attractive for players. I don't know how you can accomplish it. If I got some ideas, I'll post them here.

Enough criticism has been told, this project is great and I am absolutely sure that more fantastic features will come up in the future!

Regards,
Soprah

Unfortunately, I'm limited in the functions, all information and stuff needs to work with ManiaPlanet WebServices.
I still have a dream: Make the chat available to WS :yes: :roll:. That will be cool to have in the app!
