It might be a 32 bit app. No 32 bit apps will work with iOS 11

Hi,

The WF Access app has not been updated in a few years and is incompatible with iOS 11. I'd recommend having a look at this:

Free Automotive, Car Mobile App - Apple & Android

Cheers,
Fergus

Yes, iOS 11 release as of this morning. Been running 11 beta since the beginning. Devices include iPhone 7+, iPad mini 4, iPad 2017, iPad Pro 12.9 2017.
Having said that, I don't use any of those devices to post (as you can see from my post count), but I can read everything. The iPhone didn't show anything until I logged in though. That's why I was curious what wasn't working for you.

Hey guys,

Sorry to repeat this again, but the app is no longer supported.
I would recommend using either Tapatalk or the autoguide app.

Richard.

I wish Autoguide would take over the WF app or design one like it. I feel they will lose a lot of member ship because of it. Ease of use is something i look for in a app and the original WF apps design fit that bill. Even the AG app is on its way out as they force the stupid mobile format down our throats. I just cant get used to TAPATALK no matter how hard i try. Its sad, i wish you guys would listen to us and figure something out.

1 We're not forcing the AG app out in favor of the mobile skin, they're the same functionality. The AG App just needs to be refitted for IOS 11 and isn't finished yet.
2 We did take over the WF app, that's why we managed to get it back online when it experienced a critical security failure last year. What we didn't take over and can't take over is ForumRunner, the root software developer, they refuse to build a new version and have since 2013. We cannot rip off their design as that would be copyright infringement.
3 What about the mobile view do you not actually like as we are literally upgrading it on a bi-weekly basis so it could be what you don't like is patched or on the to-do list already

I dont mind the AG app. Its been giving errors for awhile now and im on ios 10. If you plan to keep it going i will be happy. I thought you were phasing out the AG app in favor of the Mobile format not the other way around?

I like being able to quickly look at previous post, my threads, profile etc and so far the WF app is the only app thats done that ... and smoothly. AG app a close 2nd.
Tapatalk is too cluttered and hard(er) to navigate "quickly".
Its all about speed especially moderating. With the WF app i could literally fly through all recent post and do what i got to do.

There hasn?t been an update to JF app in 5 years; that?s wrong.

I love using this app; it really is fun to stay in touch with folks, convenient when I?m working on my rig, and to get me through boring parts of the day! But it?s not that hard to update an app, I just met with the head app developer from Apple. Any half professional company with a couple of sixteen year old techs can do it. My opinion is JF should stop relying on outside support (Tapatalk, Photobucket, etc) to operate its systems; it can be organically or integrated through third parties but would be seemless to the end user.

@sdjp - JF app? or did you mean WF app for Wrangler Forum? It's unfortunate but the old app as previously stated multiple times is no longer supported. We cannot update something that isn't supported anymore.

We do have our own AutoGuide app and encourage members to host their images here directly to avoid using 3rd party sites but we the community has options on whatever works best for them.

As Kyle mentioned, our enhanced mobile view is being upgraded on a bi-weekly basis so any feedback on how it can improve would be greatly appreciated. Don't forget to include the phone/browser you are using.

Let us know if there's anything else we can help with. Happy Friday the 13th!


Cheers,
Nate

Ha! Yes I was gripping about Jeep Forum, it was early in the morning and I couldn't log onto JF because of the new IOS on my Iphone, so I went through the web browser and WF and JF have that same green header, I confused to the two. Sorry for the hemmup gents.

No worries, it's one of our other sites too so that's easy to mix up especially if they have the same green header.

The iOS11 update has caused a lot of incompatibility issues but they are being worked out.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.


Cheers,
Nate

Is Guide also gone, now? The mobile site is a bear to use Just posting a reply is so cumbersome that sometimes I decide to just move on, lol.

WF app was awesome, was excited to try
AutoGuide but itís no longer in the App Store, and Tapatalk is a PITA.

Hoping someone out there has a good option I just have found yet.

Hey there,

I believe the AG App just needs to be refitted for IOS 11 and isn't finished yet at the moment. It should still be in production as of right now.

Ugh, that's a drag. Hopefully they will make it available to the US once they are finished with it. Sorry for the inconvenience. I understand that this is not ideal.
