    I am currently posting this from my phone and have had great success accessing the forum through the app. I do have two requests, one major and one minor.

    The first is easy enough. And that is the ability to copy text when viewing a post. Long hold does nothing and there is no way to select or copy text. This is rather frustrating when I am trying to look up an app somebody posted or reference a specific line.

    The second request would probably take a substantial amount of programming but I thought id share. My request is the ability to preview posts or at least be able to see the previous posts in the thread you are replying to. In the full web browser this is called Topic Review and is at the bottom of the reply text box. This is extremely helpful for writing replies and referencing posts before yours. The way I have to do it now on the app is select all my text and copy it (this works in the post editor), go back and reload the page, reread the part I wanted, hit reply, then paste the text and continue writing.

    Thoughts?

    I agree with you on the 2nd suggestion as I think it would be quite a helpful feature.

    Re: the first, I can already copy and paste while viewing a post in the Phandroid app, so maybe the problem is with your setup?
    What version of Android r u using? Or what keyboard?

    Edit: just to confirm, I copied and pasted the text below directly from your post.

    The second suggestion would be a very helpful implementation.

    As far as the first (bug?), I am still unable to copy, or use any long-press functions on a post through the phandroid app. I am on OS 2.2 and using the stock keyboard.

    I'll check the market for a phandroid app update next.

    Edit: it is fully updated

    Ok, well I'm using MIUI 1.6.3, which is built around Android 2.3.4 and with both the stock keyboard and Swype i can copy and paste in the Phandroid app.

    Sorry I don't have any better suggestions.

    Bump. Where is a good place to post this kind of feedback/suggestion?
     
  6. Moving this to the Phandroid Application forum.
