Forums App (Android) - is Live!

Finally, the long wait is over!

The Forums App (Beta) is going live today! We’re launching the Android app first, with the iOS app to follow shortly.

This is a native experience for the Forums and although we’re still in Beta we have a ton of features in the pipeline - with regular updates planned. Let us know what you think! Helpful suggestions are always welcome and we’ll do our best to implement the best ideas in a timely manner.

(Or, search for: "RedFlagDeals Forums" in the Google Play Store on your device)

Glad to hear you like it so far.

We're working on the subscriptions bug, it's supposed to work :)

How shortly is shortly?:) I found RFD iOS app really costs data after last big update. Not sure whether due to that those flyers or that egg farmer video ad, but really look forward new forum app in iOS

I love the forums app so far, I only use the forum part of the site and it's nice being able to instantly open into the hot deals without navigating.

We voted him in as God of RFD last month. Where were you during elections...?

Looks good, replying seems simple. Much better than the new mobile site.

Hoping to be able to view profiles, multi-quote, and importantly swipe right to go back in the future!

A suggestion/comment if this isn't being implemented yet. Can we get a confirmation for logout? The button is pretty big and mispressing it can happen. Would be nice to have a confirmation.

Yes to basically all of those! As for the logout button, it's temporary and will reside somewhere in the settings/profile section once it's complete.

What do we have to do in the beta program? Do we have to report any bugs or problems?

Here are some feedback/suggestions after using the app. This, of course, is relevant to the current version and whatever I mention here might already be in the works.
  • Threads aren't marked as read until you scroll to the last post. Maybe mark them as read after you click into the thread.
  • Deal pricing isn't shown at the top of the page a long with other info you would see in the full/mobile version of the site. I'll assume this one is already in the works.
  • The scroll bars to select the page is alright but it's not great. Would be awesome if there were FABs to go to first page, go to last page, go to first unread or the next page. Similar to the regular website.
  • I might be mistaken but I think currently image links open to external browser, would be nice if they can be rendered in-app.
  • I don't RFD's own embedded images can be zoomed in. Would be nice if they could.
  • The current threads don't respect account settings on the website in terms of the number of post to show. Would be nice if it either respected the settings from the site or if you can set it as a setting.

I wish I could sort threads: that'd be my #1 request. The app is very barebones, and feels like a stripped down version of the regular app for now. Still, I'll be using it, and it has potential.

Hi eeto,
Technically nothing but use the app. Although if you happen to notice any bugs or things you'd like to see - let us know!

Thanks for the feedback! To answer some of your questions/comments:
1. It's similar to the way web works - need to go to last page to mark as read -- but it's a good point to discuss nonetheless.
2. Good feedback - in the works.
3. Have you tapped on the pager box in the bottom right --- [ 2 / 12 ] --- if you do it expands. Tweaks are in the works.
4. WebView for the links - in the works.
5. Pinch to zoom - in the works
6. Yep, although a bit down the road.
