    Help!!

    Just changed on my iPhone 5 and now as well as not being able to "thank" any more (that changed some time ago) now I cannot even reply to threads on my phone!:eek:

    Anyone got any suggestions to try?

    I'm using it on an iPad, haven't tried the iPod/ iPhone version yet.

    Looks like a good start, but...

    I was wrong about this.
    ***It kicks me out to a web browser every time I tap on a thumbnail. This requires a double click of the home button and selecting the app to get back. This is very user unfriendly.***
    I guess it just does this with images posted on other websites. Flickr for example. I still like the old app's method of sliding over to display a web page with a single tap back to the thread.

    If I'm getting kicked out to a web browser I might as well look at the website instead of use the app. The old app displayed the image and a tap or two returned me to the thread. It also allowed flicking through all the images posted on the page and looking at thumbnails all together on a single page.

    It's nice to able thank some one now, but it's called "Like" instead of "Thank". It's inconsistent with the website. The little heart that shows the number of "Thanks" is good but, the pop-up that it calls up never shows more than three names. It is also labeled like instead of thanks.

    It's good to see development and I'm hoping for improvements in the future.

    "Subscribed" is now called "Favorites". Again an inconsistency with the website. On a personal note, some of my subscribed threads are incredibly frustrating and not at all my favorites.

    I don't know if it's available in UK yet, but it's a new app, not an upgrade. Same name, same icon, new app. kind of confusing. Search the App Store for Mu-43. If the new one is available it will show up with a "download" button instead of an "open" button.

    I have not yet downloaded the new app - but this is my main gripe with the FujiXSpot app. So I'm assuming they're using the same code base. I like the old one that shows the full-screen version of the image once you tap on it. So no updates for me until the next version. :smile:

    Hyubie,

    It does just show the image, but not all the time. It seems to be the way the URL is being parsed. It's not done the same as the old app.

    You can download the new one without the old one going away since it's not an upgrade to the old one. They have the same name and icon which is confusing, but you can use them side by side. Right now I'm using the old one for image heavy threads.

    I'd like to see some way to access the forum galleries inside the app. Both for viewing others and managing my own.

    Noticed a "bug"... when you are looking at a Buy/Sell/Trade thread, it only shows the title and pictures. Doesn't allow you to see description price location etc...
