Gospel library is horrible at switching languages

Postby wesleykeetch » Mon Sep 18, 2017 3:30 pm

It will switch to Spanish and then when a back button is clicked it will go back to the previous language. The switching function needs to be improved.

Isn't the back button on Android always supposed to go back to where you were previously?

Are there examples of other third-party apps that switch languages in the app? I'm curious how they behave.

I would expect that switching of language is not cached as "browsing event" or whatever one calls them. I would think it is configuration / setting event such as changing font size etc.

Yes. The same is true for Windows apps, as well. It's the browser-like paradigm, really. Navigating to the same page on a different language is still a different place "on the web" (in the library for Gospel Library), and thus is part of the forward/backward navigation history. The behavior makes perfect sense to me,
