    Our new site app is now available for iOS - search "Mu-43" in the App Store.

    Benefits vs mobile browser:
    -Lower data usage due to image lazyloading
    -Push notifications
    -Different user interface that some may prefer

    For those who missed the announcement, our app is also available for Android.

    It's by Tapatalk? How is this any different than just using the Tapatalk app?

    It's organized differently. Try and you'll see.

    I like the thread preview on the side bar. You can easily browse by looking at the last comment or photo. I am missing the bottom response icons. I can like a post, but I haven't found a way to use the other responses other than to go to the web view.

    I tried to download it, but it wants my Apple ID. Why? I don't have one.

    Yes, those are limitations. Good to have choices.


    That's a good question for Apple to answer!

    Another free app didn't require the Apple ID. The mu-43 app did.

    I'd have to defer to Apple. No idea why they'd require an Apple ID for some free apps and not others.

    I started to apply for an Apple ID, but it was way too much hassle. And when I tried to abort the process, it locked up the app. I had to reset my iPad. Mu-43 works fine for me with no app so I'll just stick to accessing it that way.

    Thanks.

    I'm also seeing double images when a photo that's hosted my Mu-43 is posted.

    Wondered why the app was using over 4.5GB of space on my iPhone, then found a "Clear Cache" option in the app settings. This really needs an option to automatically clear the cache at a set interval, like every 30 days.

    The iPhone app seems to have lost ability to "Like" posts.

    How do you remove the bottom response banner thingy when viewing a thread?
