      As the title says, whenever I start a slideshow and double tap the image, the slideshow now stops. This wasn’t the case a few versions ago, but I’m not 100% sure when it started. Also not sure if it’s intentional or not; if it is, a settings option to disable this would be nice

      (if I’ve missed it, however, my apologies; in that case I’d appreciate a hint where to find it)

      Are you talking about double tap or single tap? I am asking because you say “double tap” but in the Play Store review you said “tapping the screen” – which assumes single tap.

      I usually double tap images, so this is how I noticed it. When playing around though I’ve seen that it doesn’t make a difference, the slideshow stops regardless.

      I also went through old versions of the app on Aptoide; the last time it worked as expected was in Version 5.5.22

      We did change this, so it’s expected behavior. We think it’s more in line how other galleries work (thus what most users would expect), and we got some requests for F-Stop to work this way.

      Ah, I see, thanks for clarifying. (and thanks in general for the quick replies). I honestly didn’t think this was intended, my apologies. Any chance a future update could bring a settings element that can toggle this feature? Of course I don’t know whether that’s worth the hassle if more people wanted things the other way round, so no hard feelings if this is just how things are now. Just saying it would be cool, haha.

      This change to the way f-stop slideshow operates is a bad move because if I’m wanting to use an app with the same sort of behavioural functions that is just like every other app, then I will just go and use a different app. The very reason why F-stop was such a great app was the different functions that could still be done during an active sideshow. If you’re getting requests from users who want you to dumb down the app and make it more like every other app and make it just like any other gallery app, then view these requests with scepticism. A user, who presumably likes the innovation of other functions the app performs, then makes a request to strip away a function what was a game changer so it’s more like the other apps that were presumably discarded because they didn’t offer enough innovative functionality.
      Theyre essentially wanting you to get rid of innovative ideas that give an edge over competition….. it doesn’t make sense why this is suddenly such a great idea and then changed in every update thereafter or why it cannot be offered as an optional function to choose from in settings menus.
