    Loving the app. Would it be possible to have a quick scroll handle, to quickly get to the letter of the app you're looking for?

    Or the ability to change the displayed name?

    The scroll handle is a good idea... in the meantime, note that you can "Star" apps that you particularly enjoy/prefer discussing.

    Inability to change the display name is an oversight. We have this function in EarlyBird - News for Android and can likely port over the code fairly easily. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Created tickets to check the change username code and added a improvement task for the scrolling. The scrolling may not be in the first public release but it is on our radar.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    More and more game threads are showing up in the Android Applications forum that were apparently submitted from Channels. Pokémon Go as example.

    Is there a plan to somehow segregate them out to the Android Games forum?

    @stevealbright @Rob If we remap those to Games, will it move all existing threads too?

    I'm not 100% sure how this will work but we have the system set up so that we CAN handle it in the future. I will ask our web dev how to best proceed. Thanks for the input.

    If they were not from this source by this user staff would just be manually moving them to the Android Games forum.

    Is that what is supposed to be happening now?

    No... They should not be manually moved. We have the infrastructure in place to make this work in a more automated fashion but need to connect the dots.

    How about the ability to search for and add channels for apps that you do not yet have installed yourself

    You know. Search and add... not a bad thought.

    This is fairly obvious, so I hope it isn't impossible, or tragically overlooked. Can the app icon at the top or the OP of the thread include a Play link? I've found a few apps to install and use, but each time I need to search play for the app.:(

    I love this app. It's very informative and I like seei g the real time questions from other users that often duplicate my own.

    How do I change my avatar? The google account I had used to login has an avatar. But i chose a handle when I was posting the first comment. Now i don't see any profile editing option.
