The "Portal Pasażera" #Android app is truly a feat of engineering.
It's the official app of PKP PLK, the company overseeing polish railway network. It's the only app having access to the official timetable data with last minute updates and delay information. As a true monopoly, they protect this data to the point of harassing "competition" — and by competition, we mean people making free applications without ads.
But back to the topic. This is the app that you open you need to quickly look the departure time up, or check the train delay. However:
1. The previous instance manages to be killed by Android, for some reason.
2. It takes 20 seconds to start!
3. It decides that it's a perfect time to update station data.
4. It requires you to input all the data again.
5. In the meantime, you lose reception and can't fetch the data anymore.

#Android peeps: is there a way to have all fedi links open in your respective fedi app?
I feel like I might have asked it before but can't find it.
(so if you click on a link to a fedi instance, it will open it in Tusky,Fedilab or whatever fedi app you tend to use. instead of the browser)

For a long time, I was convinced that I've set my #Android phone to dark theme. And I kept wondering why app after app doesn't respect that, and I kept setting apps to dark theme explicitly.
Recently, it occurred to me that perhaps the light theme would work better in sunlight (and it does!). After digging up the deeply hidden color theme option, I've discovered… that it was set to automatic, which apparently… is based on wallpaper. Whatever that means. So I've set light mode explicitly, and went to reset all apps to use system theme again, or "automatic".
Well, apparently not all apps actually support using system theme, or do it correctly. For example, for Element, "system theme" actually means automatically switching between light and dark theme based on the clock. Sigh.

#Android teaches that you should read comments before upgrading applications.
Looks like #meteo.pl took over yet another unofficial weather app, and replaced it with thin wrapper that forces you to install the "official" app instead. I suppose I don't have to say that the official app is total crap.
The old version still works. How long is it going to keep working? I suppose it's time to find another weather provider.
NB: in Aurora Store, you can add it to the "blacklist" to hide the upgrade.
Quick correction: apparently they've changed the app to be less crap. Still, that practice of killing "competition" is awful.

Some Fedi apps should merge or at least start adding features from other apps.
I'm currently using 3 apps because each one has necessary QOL features that would severely hinder my Fedi experience if they didn't exist. However, it'd be quite appreciated if they were all in one app instead of having to juggle them...😬🤦‍♂️
