IOS can't read Thai Language.
Since IOS 13 released on September 19, 2019....
All IOS user cannot read Thai language in Ingress Prime anymore... And It's already 2 years but Niantic seem not care about solving the issue while Android can read and type Thai language as original Ingress. What we can see are square boxes with a question mark inside for every Thai characters. (broken fonts)
I try to report this problem to Niantic since 2019 but this is what Niantic responded.
That's a bad joke but yes, Niantic told me to throw away my current cell phone and buy a new android cell phone just to play Ingress if i want to read Thai language.
Nowaday, I don't know if I play mission and there a question in Thai language, how can I do? I try to contact local Vanguard but she told me that she report to tell Niantic too but Niantic just do nothing.
I tried more to tell Niantic by created a mission banner (18 missions). But all rejected (as I thought) Niantic give me a reasons
- A lack of a clear and informative description and/or title
- Mission Image, description, and/or title are unrelated to the Waypoints chosen
I choose "Siam" area because "Siam" mean "Thailand". I just want to tell Niantic that we really cannot read you Niantic seem not care us. (If they approved It will be a limit time mission until Thai language readable on IOS)
I really don't care if this banner pass or not but what i want is to tell Niantic that we still want you to watch this problem.
Can you please.... solve this problem? I love Ingress, I subscripted for C.O.R.E since the first day and I think not just only me did that... even we cannot read Thai language. And I hope Niantic not leave us...
PS1. I use to post this issue since Nov 2019 located here https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/6561/broken-thai-fonts-since-update-to-ios-13#latest but nothing happen. After 2 years from that day. Today, I post here again and hope NIANTIC solve this for all of us.
PS2. This problem happen to Pikmin too.
We're still investigating how best to support Thai language so that it's human readable.
