What's New in Version 1.6.2
- Fixed layout issue bug
Good start. TOO BUGGY 🐛🐝🐜🐞
Wow! This app is terrible. A forum I commonly use brought me here as the way to beat experience it over mobile. It is SO much better using the mobile forum on Safari or even the desktop version of the forum I use on the Safari app, but it's simplicity is much nicer. This is a HUGE waste of money and needs some serious improvements as of now, but if they fix the crash /force close bug, it will be fully functional and worth the cost. For starters, the theme is BORING. It won't load albums, it just says there are no photos when I have viewed them online before. Please, save yourself the money and go buy yourself something nice because you didn't waste your money on this app. What are you waiting for? Stop reading reviews and GO BUY YOURSELF SOMETHING NICE IF YOU DID'NT BUT THD APP! Have a nice day.
Great app to read forums
This is a great app and easy to use. I love that you can add your favorite sub-forums to the home screen of the app. Not sure why others are having trouble. I just tested to see if you can zoom on images and that works perfectly in either portrait or landscape mode.
You have to sign up for a Forum Runner account and then sign into any forums you want to save. Definitely, click on the action arrow when you’re inside a forum and "add to favorites" so you don’t have to search for a forum every time you open Forum Runner. All favorites will appear on your home screen.
This app is certainly not worth paying for. Been using it for just over a month now. Thinking that continued use might make it seem better in time. It's not better. The only thing good is that you can read your forum threads a little easier (the font is bigger and more readable than using the browser). The bad: I cannot get to my forums easily as this app does not allow you to have a favorites or 'saved' list. You have to search each time to get to your forums. Push notifications do not work properly. Or at all. And certain things within some of my favorite forums are missing with this app. Also, the way threads are posted with only the most recent replier listed and they do not have the actual posters name. Very confusing. Defiantly not worth the money!
