Another near-final update just went out. This one is mostly cosmetic as it adds some forum icons and cleans up the home screen a bit.

Thanks.

Private messaging not available in the beta? Also I can't seem to edit my posts after initial post with the beta app.

A few things I've come across with the Android forums app:

  • Can the max number of forums appearing on the Home screen be increased from 3?
  • I noticed that, in the Hot Deals forum, deal Expiry Dates show up on the app when the OP inputs the field but the Price field does not. If the price is not added in the title or within the first post/main page, forum app users need to open the main RFD app to look up the details. Can the Price field be added?
  • Any type of list (bullet or numeric) does not appear as lists but as one string of text (view post #27 above from @RFDMobile or this post in the app and you'll see what I mean).
  • Coloured text does not appear in the forums app (see save-on-foods-darrells-deals-week-ongoi ... #p27424205 for an example). Can this be added?

Wups, sorry for the delay!

1. So yes, looking into it now!
2. Sooo, the thing about that is: people rarely seem to add the price to the price field. :( That said, I'll see what we can do to add it in somewhere.
3. Great point, will fix shortly!
4. This should be doable - I'll add it to the list!

Thanks for the tips!

So private messaging is coming, but the first phase will be simplified. After we get it in we'll start to spice it up.

Editing should work, but I'll look into it.

Having an issue with the Android app and images. It typically shows images as a broken paper icon but using a web browser i can see them fine. Is there an issue with the way the application displays images?
Sorry wanted to clarify this is for the RedFlagDeals app and not the beta forum app.

Any update on this? The Android application is still not showing images properly (shows a broken paper icon placeholder).

Awesome app, is there a way to have the actual thread title bolded instead of the store name?

@GeneralZod We can't seem to get this to replicate on our devices here. Any chance you could send me a PM with a screen shot?

Any way to navigate to a specific page of a thread? Using that scroll bar on the bottom isn't accurate and is way harder than typing in the page number.

Hey @darkcloud8282 good question/comment.
Currently the only way to jump to a page (vice scrolling down) is to use the pagination button at the bottom. That said, for a thread that has many many pages, do you typically try to go to a certain page, i.e. 596/997 --- or are you just trying to move back/forward in the conversation, without a specific page in mind?

Sometimes I scroll through a long thread and jump around a bit. But I've had a bug where when I try to scroll to the last page and it refreshes back to the first page.

Have had an ongoing issue for the past few months. It's intermittent but hoping there's a permanent fix on my side. When I mark all posts as read from the app, when I refresh, it still displays all posts as still unread.
