Good feedback! I agree with you on the "tap the Hot Deals button and reload the content again feature" that's something we should put in. +1
- as an aside, in iOS if you tap on the Time (at the top of your device) it'll typically take you to the top of the page. Works in safari and other apps with long scrolling behaviour. That could help a bit for the next little while.

Wow I've never known that tip. Then again I only started using an iPhone about a year ago

Looks like most of the other feedback I had had already been posted. The biggest feature missing was the search so I can't wait to try that once it makes its way into the app.

I also found it tricky to get the quick reply to come up - sometimes it took several attempts to scroll up and down before it would appear. Also it would be really cool if we could change fonts or background colours...maybe even just the font colours for the thread titles so that they stand out more when first looking at the list of threads

@7-Endless Thanks for the feedback!

Search is coming shortly - though it's the first version of search, the results will make the same as those on web.

As for the colour updates, agreed, we'll be making design updates along the way.

You should make post title dark and user name light colour, not other way around. I come to see deal not meet friends

Hey @tk1000 So currently the only subscriptions you'll see in the app are those that are subscribed in the app, we're working on syncing web subs with the app.

Absolutely, that's come up a few times now. We're working on a tweak for that.

(Though for the Hot Deals forum, the bold is the retailer name)

In profile area, it only has user name and post number, sort of wasting space. It can become a dashboard showing number of new PM, number of new upvote and so on
Or even a link to deal around you

Also title should be on the first line and user name is below the title . People usually read from top to bottom, so need put important information on the top and larger font

Also the page navigation bar is inconvenient comparing to enter page number. It looks cool but for those 80 plus pages hot deal threads,it's hard to move to specific page. And it seems very sensitive, sometimes it went to certain page before I stop moving bar. Seems as far as I stop moving a very short time, it starts to refresh page

Besides, inside the thread, it should also provide a shortcut to last page and first page button

For the BST, if I swipe to right, I can go to last page, but can we add a function that if I swipe to left, I can see seller's feedback summary (for example, 27 feedback.100% positive). The rationale is if I didn't see good feedback or enough feedback, I might not want to open the post

Even better option is we remove how many replies line and put feedback summary there instead

And page load(especially swipe to last page) is very slow
