is anyone have problems lately with the android app just not loading the forums at all? it's been very unstable for me lately even though the website is fine on the multiple devices...
Yes, I am having the same problems on my Android. Often the forum won't load. Accessing the notifications is a hit and miss. Sometimes they open sometimes it's just stuck in loading. After a while I get the error loading threads.

We're aware of the issue. The problem is happening due to a connectivity issue with the YellowPages authentication service. They're looking into it.

Android app, also cannot SAVE the Notifications settings. I want to turn all off except PM

After I toggle them off, they come back to ON again, every single time

I tried rebooting, didn't help
