Small issue - a clear button for posting replies to threads might be an idea.

Otherwise I rather like it.

Thanks! Overall I really like the iPhone version, just a couple of suggestions.

The ability to rotate to landscape view would be very nice. Also, I noticed on a lengthy thread such as "AF447 wreckage found", the list of pages at the top only goes up to 11 with no possibility to scroll or drag to allow access to the rest of the pages. The only way to get to the later pages is to scroll down and wait as it loads each page at the bottom, which clogs up the cache.

J.O. - found out by accident that if you drag, ie scroll, the page list quickly to the left you get access to all the other pages above 11.

Unless I've missed something, the iPhone version doesn't embed images, so you need to view each individual post separately to view any images.
I'm going back to viewing the regular PPRuNe site on safari...

Re: images, the tech team says,

"The images intentionally don't load to reduce load time (and bandwidth costs) over networks".

If others are also not into that, please chime in.

It works, but doesn't recognise my "subscribed" forums. It shows me three threads that expired in 2006 that it thinks I want to follow.

I'll stick with the button that starts Safari and takes me to the User CP.

Anyone worked out the significance of the blue blob before a thread title, I'd the red or green post counts after a thread title?

Oh, by the way, any chance in Android of making it less of a memory hog? I moved it to sdcard, but it still uses something like 4M of internal memory.

Having said all of that, still a good app, and I hope with improvements it will become the main way I access PPRuNe. Thanks!

ILblog - The iOS app is available here:
PPRuNe App for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

Keep the technical issues and questions coming, everyone. I will collect them this week and present them to our tech team.

"Go to last unread post" doesnt work, using phone 3GS

Poor on iPad

OK I suppose on iPhone; but, quite disappointing on the iPad.

Going back to a normal browser for the full experience. For PPRuNe I usually manage OK using the Atomic Browser on both.

If there was ever time and resource, I'd also like to put in a request for a Blackberry app - cheers, chaps!

I don't have an iPad, so I can't see the functionality there.

What improvements would make the iPad experience better?

OK, just got word from the tech team:

"The app works fine on the iPad functionally wise, it just isnít an iPad specific app, and may not be as aesthetically pleasing".

So they actually advise using a regular web browser with an iPad

memory hungry

Guys, run in to a potential issue for the HTC Android phones (i have a desire). The app is hugely memory hungry. I moved the app to sdcard so as to reduce its footprint. Still leaves 2.35M on internal....

And then there is the data. I just looked at it, and it was caching all the forum posts I'd looked at on internal, rather than sdcard storage. The result is that the app had grown to consuming 7M internal storage, despite being on sdcard.

I have cleared it down now, but this is something that needs fixing, otherwise it is a dead end for many usrs. Memory management on the Android is a big issue!

1. Every time you refresh it marks READ items as UNREAD
2. There needs to be a way to quickly navigate to a favorite forum. To long to drill down.
3. Need an option to "scroll to last post" in the thread like Tapatalk has.
4. Landscape mode?
5. Last post doesn't work

iPhone 4

Any chance of a windows phone 7 app? I know it isn't a very well received operating system, and is poorly supported by apps, hasn't sold well and all that sort of thing.

We currently don't have plans to develop a Windows app, but who knows - that could change given enough demand!
