Some apps don't have refresh button
#1
I've noticed that a couple of apps, Geary and Cawbird (Twitter), don't appear to have a way to check for new messages. Is there something about the PP screen size that has cut off UI buttons? Or, are they just supposed to do that at some polling frequency?

Thanks.

From the Cawbird github, I see that a refresh button was added in a newer version than what apt installed for me. I *think* sliding down at the top is supposed to refresh, but I'm not sure. On the PP, it doesn't work that way.

Yes, cawbird is polling for new tweets. Can scroll down to see them.

I can't say for Geary in particular, but most IMAP clients use a combination of Lemonade for servers that support it (which is most by now), and polling for those that don't.
