Mobile workflow

enjoying the friending meme, lots of fresh activity on the friendslist *waves*

but this is underlining my problems with the LJ mobile experience.

dear hivemind, what can i change to make things better?

specs:


  • Samsung phone with Android Marshmallow

  • email client is Google Inbox

  • browser default is UC Browser, with Chrome and Samsung's "Internet" as backups

  • official LJ app

problems:


  • the official app doesn't properly display a bunch of custom LJ tags - usernames, community names, polls

  • the official app won't let me choose a freaking userpic

  • the official app can't negotiate CAPTCHAs

  • browsers have more functionality if i display the desktop page but still can't negotiate CAPTCHAs (and it's really easy to fat-finger the wrong link)

  • i can't respond to comments from email

has anyone found a better way?

i see there's a .ru app. anyone know if it works any better and if so, if there's a way to sign in with a .com LJ?

I don't use the official LJ app at all. It's horrible. I actually use the mobile version (m.livejournal.com or some such - checking on mine, it's m.livejournal.com/read/user/laridian) and that's much easier to deal with. That would be my first suggestion.
