Odd request

I have a very odd request. I have sent my app to be approved for the Nexus Player/ Android TV. My Issue is that they are considering the Loading image at the beginning to be to small. I have explained to them what that is and they still won't approve the app unless that loading screen is bigger. Very odd but google is just being a butt about sizes with there android tv apps. My request would be to make that larger so the app could pass. The font has to be 18sp in size for them to approve. 

Oh it took 5 times to finally get them to tell me that. Errr...

William,

I understand the frustration! Would it be possible for you to take a screenshot of the loading screen in question?

I couldn't get a screenshot from the emulator but the loading animation that comes up before the presentation loads is really small from what they said. Really they are complaining about the font size of the loading animation and not the animation itself. I will see if i can take a picture of it tonight when i get home, but from the looks of it they wants a fairly good size animation just to get the font the right size.

Sounds like you are talking about the loading animation in Viewer (see here, http://www.screencast.com/t/wBwcBvfs). Is that right?

That's correct. To them it's too small and needs to be larger because it contains text that's below there minimal 18sp.

If anything it be cool to change the loading animation in the Viewer to something simple that didn't have any text. Like this one. That way text font won't be an issue.

Any word yet on this. I didn't know if this has been discussed because as of now I'm on hold on the project being published. Thanks

I have submitted an bug to our developers on this issue. We will either be changing the loading spinner to conform to standard, or removing the text that is offending google. I'll let you know when the issue is buttoned up.

William,

Just following up. Did the new loading spinner that was created work out?

Yes that should work for me. I am just waiting for it to be implemented. Thanks
