    Sorry, but its true. With the app, loading a page takes forever or often it fails completely.
    Much easier and faster to browse the forum in chrome on android.

    Sorry it wasn't up to your strict evaluation, standards and guidelines.
    Perhaps it's your particular device at issue. Try to clean up your own backyard. Clear your internet cache, cookies and reboot. Rinse and repeat. HA

    I love the app. The only problem I have is that I don't get push notifications for it anymore since the last iOS update. Not sure what is up.

    Have you checked your privacy settings on the device?
    Perhaps it was turned off for that application.

    Just a thought, no idea why that would change.

    I did, reloaded it, checked app and device settings and then let TJ know since he is an admin. Not sure what is up. It did it on all my Apple devices. Probably an Apple bug that needs addressed.

    I have been curious about this app. I normally view using Chrome on wifi connected tablet. I keep getting annoying pop ups to down load app. Is there any advantage to use the app over Web.

    I love the iOS app on iPhone.
    The iPad version, not so much.

    I liked the iPad App, but didn't like the Push Notifications.

    I was disappointed with the iPad app and went back to just viewing the forum in Safari.. Biggest issue was no way to view "new"/active threads (at least that I could find)..
    Seems like a lot of wasted space on the entire right-side as well..
    No biggie, Safari version works great.

    Hi, glad you liked it. LOFLMAO @me!!
    Sorry that some things in life aren't quite up to our strict desires.
    Perhaps "they" should Rub the magic vase with more enthusiasm...

    The wide margin on the right, gives those of us with less than perfect eyesight the advantage of spreading the screen out, enlarging the font. And making pictures more visible.

    The sense of entitlement is unfreaking believable.

    It's amazing how people can sit there and call anything they got for free on someone else's time "garbage".

    Why not type: "suggestions to improve the app" or "why I think the app falls short" etc.

    No, never did. Assuming I never configured it, the forum sends me e-mails.

    I just need to do the emails. Push notes worked for awhile, then stopped.
