  1. Product images are now shown in review detail and order detail

    This works great for me. I see the product images in both the review and order detail, and when there isn’t a product image set I see a placeholder in the app.

    In the notification list, only the first two lines of a review are now shown

    This change works well for me. However, I’m seeing some other issues with reviews:

    * In the notification list, a review’s star rating doesn’t always load right away. The star rating is also then missing in the review detail. Pulling to refresh the notification list worked to load it, so I’m not sure if the star rating is just loaded different from the rest of the notification and takes longer to sync?
    * In the review detail, a very long review can end up overlapping the Gravatar and star rating, and get squished up against the moderation buttons. I noticed this twice, both times when I tapped the push notification to open the app and see the review:
    * I can’t scroll the review detail. In portrait a very long review will be cut off, with no visible moderation buttons; in landscape the review may not be visible at all:
    * In the review detail, the star rating can appear above or below the review text:


  2. This is more of a design question on the Notifications tab:

    When I view my notifications, there’s no indication which of the reviews have been approved and which are not approved. Could there be a way to distinguish between the two, so that when I’m scanning through my notifications I know which ones I need to take action on?

    In the WordPress app, I also get notifications for new reviews (just like comment notifications) and they have a subtle color difference for approved and unapproved reviews/comments. Here are screenshots to compare the two apps:


  3. I believe the woocommerce android app reached a stable state for managing orders and reviews. Thanks for the great work for woocommerce android team.

    There are some problem with order management in the woocommerce, which is making this app an incomplete solution for me:
    1. Order doesn’t contain any pricing information for any custom pricing added by Woocommerce Extra Product Options – Theme Complete plugin. This is the top seller plugin in codecanyon and many the stores are using it right now, but woocommerce app doesn’t handle it’s output.
    2. The app don’t provide custom order status and just have complete status option after the order is in processing state. I have a custom order status like delivered but this is not available in current woocommerce android app.

    I hope woocommerce android team will look after the basic yet most important functionality in any woo Store.
