I have read the article. I agree that restoring the session is necessary and useful. Well, for me it is not - my device have 128MB of RAM (but this one is extreme). But, I understand that devices of other users are not equipped with the same amount of memory as mine is and therefore low memory conditions can occur very ofen.
I'm never buying a 64MB PDA again...
So, I'm thinking about the restoring feature for 1.3.3 - it should not be much complicated to do it. For the begining, I'm considering full dialog restore. Example: If you are in URL rewriting dialog, pRSSreader should restore 3 windows (main window, Site Properties Window and URL rewritting window). For now, I can not say if I could go further in restoring and my stand is that dialog restoring should be sufficient enough for most of users.
Well the case where I notice this is reading an article then I power the PDA off or it goes to sleep. Then a reminder wakes the device, and the act of that closes pRSSr. So I'm only in the main window I guess. Not sure if that answers your question.
Does anyone know if the competitiors do any session restoring? Which and how?
Any further comments on session restoring? Any wishes before I start to implement it?
We're talking about a feature that basically should be transparent. It should "just work" and the user should not have to think about it.
