Curious, is there a "portal" view consolidating the recent threads of all the sub-fora like of the website?

Why can't I see avatars in the forums but I can when I look at the "people" menu? Using iPad.

It turns out the new app isn't compatible with my iOs (original iPad) and after reading these posts I'm kind of glad it isn't. One more example of the advantages of being a "late adopter!"

I tried the TapaTalk app on my Galaxy S2. It works fine. Now.

I am using the new app on an iPod mini. When I go to "participated" to see the threads I have posted to, I get a thingie telling me there are none. Same if I click on my or other people's avatar to see posts I/they have made--thingie tells me there are none.

Other than that it is all good. I like that it will save a post as a draft if I need to leave the site to check on something, so I can add to it without recreating it.

On an iPad 2, I also appear to have no "participated" threads. Still learning my way around the app, but it is much better than the old one.

I deleted and reloaded the app. It appears to be working much better at this time.

Finally figured out this app!! I bought it from iTunes..registered it and then hooked up the forum. Doesn't work from just clicking the box that's offered. I was not familiar with tapatalk at all, and didn't have the background. Now I can explore much easier.

I deleted the old app, downloaded the free version of Tapatalk and then accessed the ER app (on my iPad Air) and there's no possibility of signing in and the app looks the same as ever. Ended up deleting both and will stick with web browser access.

The app from iTunes was only $4.99. Worth it to me since I really enjoy reading this forum, even tho I hardly ever contribute. Still can't see avatars tho..miss those familiar faces.

I just did a search for the first time in the ipad app. No matter what term I use, I get "no topics" in the results.

Same for me (on iTouch). I liked the search because I'd remember something somebody said but forgot the thread.

The branded app is free - you should not be paying for it? The search issue is being worked on now and should be fixed within a day.

I am seeing some posts that are missing text, including this one by Hermit, which actually has a sentence following what does show up. Another text box by another poster was completely empty, although the content appeared when someone quoted it.:

I am so sorry I upgraded to the current mobile app. Worst upgrade for me and its at least the 3rd or 4th where previous ones offered improvements to my ipad experience. This one is a step backwards. It's very non intuitive in its format and layout now. I'm tempted to just stay away until I see another change.

This seems to have been fixed (on iTouch, anyway).
