Look for the update soon and please let us know here or via our contact us page whether it worked for you or not.

Unfortunately I have no news on iOS right now, but we're still looking into that so there's still a chance we'll also be able to restore that app to a usable state. Please remember though that the app is still technically discontinued, but based on your feedback we wanted to try to make it usable again as a stop-gap solution until we move forward with our regular forums mobile project in 2021.
Works for me!! Thank you! This is amazing

Yes please bring it back I find the regular app very frustrating when browsing hot deals you can't auto load last page/post.

Thank you very much for your help @TomRFD . It's great to see the app up again.

I was enrolled in the beta program and the update hasn't been pushed. When I left the program it went trough. Also you can't install the app using the command from the desktop version of Google Play. It's more an info for the other RFD-ers. I am very happy to see the app working.

I had Uninstalled when it stopped working so the update wasn't easily accessible with a Play store search as it's no longer listed. But I found it in past purchases "library" where you can see all previously downloaded apps.

I don't have any news on the iOS Forums app to share yet, but we're still hoping to be able to restore that app to a functional state through a website update.

Also, the timeline to update the main app to include native forums (not a web view) could possibly be bumped up to later this year (as opposed to sometime in 2021). When I get a more clear picture of what's going on, I'll share another update on that.

You guys are making me want to try the app again ...

I generally don't like running apps because they either drain more of my battery or use more of my data.
I want to try some of these features so maybe I will give it a whirl again ...

Personally though, I've been very happy using the mobile site. It's a bare bones forum and that's what I love because I tend to consume a lot of content of RFD. I need to get in and out of the site and often.

Forum app is much easier to use if you are looking for just that - forums

The forums app will make your process infinitely easier to consume and stay up to date IMO.

The Forums App is working again! Dark Mode!!

I know I've been quick to criticize RFD over a lot of things, but it looks like they got this one right for now. Thank you!
