    With AF login there is a bug that is not refreshing your token correctly. Next release (very soon) will include a fix for it. For now, simply log out and log back in.

    When I finish the next build there will be a new App thread to track everything and I will task and keep it updated.

    Ty- Sir for responding, it's much appreciated. Really. The AF login was a big deal for many ppl, Ty- for incorporating it. If I can be of more (useful) help, plz lemme know. Will there be a dedicated thread for the AF.apk?

    A thread for app feedback? Soon - soon as the latest update hits the play store - which has gone back and forth a couple times in email today. Soon as Steve pushes it to Play, he'll/we'll announce it via a thread and that thread will become the official feedback thread.

    If that's what you mean..?

    Edit: oops wasn't on last page lol

    Tapatalk listed all of the forums that I follow within the site (I guess we'd call it a favorite here), with a definitive indicator when there is an unread message in each forum. There's nothing quite like that on the mobile web site.

    I gave it another try since you fixed the login issue. However, all it displays is the time line, or autopopulated forums from my device and apps, as well as threads I have started. How do I find the full forum index so I can read what I want?

    Irony: the only way I could post this was through Tapatalk....

    Great (although confusing - that means "new post/message" in most apps).

    Next question : how do I switch it back?

    One view is timelines etc. Press the plus,and it goes to a forum list. How do you get back to the original view?

    Also, it keeps crashing after switching views.

    Eta: I'm posting from my phone using the app. I've now tried three times to attach screenshots. They're there, then when I post thy disappear. I'm really not enjoying this interface!!!

    Press the back button to go back.

    I'm getting very few crashes. What device and software are you on?

    Is it possible that this somehow broke the app? I am now unable to see any updated content even though it appears I am logged in. When I try to browse the forums they are empty.

    Something is broken - I tried signing out (which would fix such problems a week or so ago) and can't sign back in. Whether related or not I can't say (you'd not expect it, obviously).

    If the plugin is disabled or removed from the forum software they I surmise you are only seeing content cached on your phone.
    Same theory.

    It's fixed now. It wasn't TT, it was missing https support. Steve has pushed an update to the store that takes care of that (still having some issues, but that's for the other thread).

    I dont like it but i do understand the financial issue.

    All forums i follow are in tapatalk - and those that arent, i typically check them once a month or have forgotten that they even exist. how about ios? I only see an app for android, but I use ios.

    For the moment I suggest trying a browser. It works fine on a mobile browser, IMO better than the app right now.

    (I don't know whether they'll want to develop an iOS app, but my impression is that their hands are pretty full at the moment).

    I can see several posts from you in this thread, but you need to scroll back to March 4th. I don't see anything since.
