I'm just trying to provide honest *end user* feedback which is - it's ok. Maybe I'm not the best person to judge, I dunno. I'm not saying I'm right and you're wrong, it's just -a view.
    Mark... I respect what you're trying to say. And maybe I'll say it for you, since several others just like to pretend we aren't rational, all just haters, always criticizing and nothing positive to say...

    It's almost impossible to promote this app when users already see and have used other mobile apps which are light years ahead and quite stable. This is because those apps get continuous development and improvement. You do your site a major disservice trying to push current users and new users to use this app when the amazing Tapatalk app and also Forum Runner are available which many have seen and provide a much better user experience. Even the mobile skin here (after I spent time cleaning it up a lot) are a noticeably better user experience than this app.

    I bought several licenses last year and wanted to do some major promotion. Adrian is a super nice guy and he seemed to have best of intentions when he sold us all on the future of this app. But a couple of months after the company collected the money, he and Fabian left, the development slowed and then stopped altogether. I think there was a 6 month gap between releases, maybe more, don't recall. For long periods there were significant problems. So after all this they made a huge to do about specifically hiring Omid who would bring us something great very shortly without paying another fee, details to be provided. Over the next several months, same story again - nothing at all, no news, ignoring all polite requests for a kind update. The three month extension - same thing. All we've seen in many months is a quick stop gap fix just to have the app begin to work again.

    Mark, I waited a long time to promote this product that was supposed to be the best mobile effort IB was making. Read the forum. I really don't know why nobody at the company hasn't even responded at all. Not the courtesy of answering reasonable questions or to help us sell the app as a great product that we're proud of to use on our sites. I can't answer that.

    Well I'm currently using Chrome web browser. I have the Forum Runner auto sig set so you can tell when I'm using that.

    I have lately gravitated to Forum Runner on mobile simply because it's installed on my site and it helps me to answer support questions on my site about how to use it. I need to learn it.

    However I have used the mobile app, and also the mobile style, on many occasions.

    Using the vb ISO app and I am having this issue. I have not upgraded to 1.3 iso app yet. So I guess I will wait longer.

    4/6 weeks to get Apple Store approval? I'd speak to Apple if that's the case as pretty well everyone else gets it in under a week...

    Patch level 2 is a security patch - the changes required for the fixes are intertwined between the core code, MAPI and mobile. There will need to be a co-ordinated release, not a single file patch.
