I'm the only one recently who said something good about the changes and now the app won't open!

Can't we just have the old one back? It's true, if it ain't broke..... come on guys, it used to be easy to get around. Now..... I don't like it.

I wouldn't say the old one wasn't broken - it definitely had glitches. But the new one... I'd much rather the old one back than the new one.

What do you mean by the full site? If there is something we should know about in order to navigate easier then please let us know. Any help would be greatly appreciated including how to get my avatar to show up.

Bad decision.
I'm not going to TRF on my iphone now. It just doesn't work. I hunt all over the place to find what I want. What was the motivation for the change?
And, I'm not a person who minds a change, if it is for the better.

Please, can the App developers revert us back to the old format? This new version isn't working on the iPhone/iPad. You can't
1- change settings.It shows changed, but doesn't apply changes
2- go from a link back to the thread. You have to close link and reopen TRF every time!
3- set/change avatars.
Furthermore, it takes ages to load, it's complicated to know which threads have new posts, topics don't load, can't erase older notifications......

reverting to the old isn't an option but we've reported the issues to the app developer and think we should see an update pushed out in the next day or so. Thanks for your patience

I'm liking the new new ap more than the last one. It's sleeker and easier to navigate (plus without the colours).

It would be nice for a future update if the multi quote reply could return (unless it's not gone and I just can't figure it out).

I still hate the app and now no longer use the forums unless I'm on my laptop.

I don't like the colours, I don't like the layout, the fact the thread I reply to disappears when I've looked at it annoys me, no delete function, no multi-quote reply.

Real shame.

I just downloaded the update for the iPhone app and I must say... I love it. Looks great. Well done.

I've updated the app and it seems to have sorted most of the issues I was having with the previous update. However, the avatars are all missing now which I didn't realise how much I liked having them until now. On balance I too think I will access the Forums through the website rather than the app.

So, in general I'm still liking the new app.

I'm still not a big fan of the message set up, but I'll get used to it (it somehow seems smaller than on the old app, if that makes sense). That said I haven't noticed the glitches that I had previously noticed with the message set up (how it made everything one paragraph or when it froze while sending a message), so overall I'd consider that a gain. I still like how you can save drafts as well.

The layout and overall look is, in my opinion, actually really nice, and sleek. It's making the most out of the app. That said, I can't make sense out of the "participated" section as it always shows no topics. Similarly, while I like the display of profiles, I find that if I click on "posts" it also ends up with no topics regardless of how many posts the user has.

It does suck that the delete post and multi-quote functions are gone. It'd also be awesome if, in a future update, things like the "thanks" could be added to the app. I find it's a huge nuisance to try to thank people using safari on my phone.

Also, I'm finding that the settings seem to reset periodically. I know I've had to turn off the signature a few times, only to find it turned back on again later.

Am I right on thinking you still can't go back to a thread once you've followed a link? I find I have to reopen the Forums - if this isn't the case, what should I be doing?

I am still having this problem - it is very annoying particularly in the fashion threads.

I found that in settings you can change it so that links open in the app instead of in the forum. Granted, setting changes don't seem to stick all the time, but it's something.

I am now able to go back to a thread after opening a link without having to reopen the thread. But I still can't upload my avatar or see others. Also cannot delete old notifications or see threads participated in...??
