Eight Forums Android App

    Thanks, z3r010! I received my app update today. Much better so far as options to navigate, personal messaging, etc. Great job!

    I've only been on it once today. Didn't notice any bugs. The last version when I went to quote a post it would freeze and ask to report or force close. I would force close then start again and it would. Didn't want to report for I was afraid it would tarnish the reputation of the app with Google. I don't know how these things work. Do you receive these reports? Is it a tarnish with Google?

    I have a Droid2 with Verizon.

    Nice! I only just saw this topic. I normally use Firefox to access the site on my tablet, it's fine.

    But I will be trying this on my phone. Sounds good. Thanks.

    Wenda.

    W8 Mobile App (Android) Navigation quirk W7 app works fine


    Hi there
    On a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone (android 4.1.2) I notice on the W8 Forum app if you click the 2nd ICON and then browse by the Forum Topics you can't get out of the application by pressing the BACK button on the phone.

    The W7 application works perfectly -- not sure if there's any difference in the two applications -- I haven't a clue about coding this type of stuff.

    I've uninstalled and re-installed the app --same problem. (If you press the Back button several times very quickly the App eventually exits or one can terminate it on the phone via the Menu button of course but this seems a bit of a brute force way of exiting an app).

    Strange.

    Cheers

    Droid X2. Android version 2.3.5

    After going forward to surf any one of the five categories at the top the back button will eventually take me back to the home screen of any one of the five categories. One more back button push from any one of those home screens exits the app.

    Hi there
    Great stuff - thanks

    I posted some other problem recently about 7 forum app - same applies to this one with Samsung S4 phone on Android 4.2 when you access the Forums by CATEGORY mode -- sometimes message -- App has stopped working.

    however last two days it seems to be working PERFECTLY now.

    (BTW will this also work on upcoming Android 4.3 release - I want to install a custom 4.3 ROM in my phone -- remove all the bloatware that comes with stock Roms).

    Cheers

    Sorry to bring up and old thread (and probably in the wrong thread too? ), but is there a report button in the app?

    If you can't see one then probably not.

    You may be better using tapatalk which is all the app is based on but more up to date.
