Android App is terrible!

Is this app going to be updated ever? Currently its terrible! Pics only show about 50% of the time, it constantly says contacting remote site etc...etc... There is enough people on this site, give us a good app especially for donating members.

I am guessing that the app you have is the old Forum runner version, i am not sure when the last update for this went out, but see if you can find it.
there is also an autoglide app for WF now that we fall under their umbrella, this will most likely be the standard WF app from now on.
however, the problems you are describing may not just be the app. ive noticed similar problems when i am in areas with poor reception, or where i dont have good 4g coverage.

The issues happen when I am on WiFi at home strong LTE doesn't seem to matter. Can you tell me how to get ahold of this auto glide app? I use the forums quite a bit and anything to improve the mobile experience would be great

This is the contacting site screen I am very familiar with, you can see I am on WiFi here. And a shot of the app startup screen.

out of curiosity, how do other apps behave when you are tethered to wifi?

I am on the new app and other than the massive adds:thumbdown: it is miles better than the other app:thumbup:. As far as apps behavior on WiFi... All but one of my apps (messaging) app works great. The messaging app will not work over WiFi.

Well I cant post an example because first im over my attachment quota and second a screen shot would make it unseeable unless this is just a problem on the GS4 since it is new.... but when I open a picture in a thread it is very small and in the middle of the top half of my screen. I cant easily scroll through pictures in a thread either... this really needs to be fixed pronto or I will be heading over to JF more often.

An account is free and there is an app that I download pictures right from my phone to photobucket then use the "img" code and post it as regular text...


Hit the menu button and select view links

Select IMG code
