    working excellently on my DROIDX.

    Only suggestion would be to add a filter option for the reviews.

    Just got it from the Market and works fine. So much easier and faster.

    Sorry Wizz, I didn't see the quotation on the forum (app). Runs like shit of a shovel is a good thing. Means it's incredibly quick. The only gripe I have is the images loading full size. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but feels/looks a little broken for me.

    Id love to see unread threads highlighted or something.

    The way reviews are setup is outstanding, btw. Works well on the hi-res screen on my Galaxy Note.

    Works great. Using it right now. Very quick.

    Will continue using for a bit and come back with any bugs and/or suggestions.

    Ok, after some use here are my thoughts: everything is perfect except the forums. (Which i assume is because it‘s just the mobile site in a browser control.) This is also the area where having a native app as opposed to just a site designed for mobile could net the most benefit for a mobile user.

    In a perfect world, where code writes itself and time is as cheap as words, i imagine an app which would allow me to be working on a project and writing the project log from my phone at the same time. Some sort of ability to take a picture and have it automatically uploaded to tpu.org, and the img tag complete with image url auto inserted into a new reply to the thread you‘re viewing would be the killer app for the forum side of things. Those of us with physical keyboards on our mobile devices could approach laptop levels of usability on the forums.

    As for actual plausible improvements: being able to swipe to change pages on the forum would be nice; and the page buttons are a little difficult to hit with them being between the reply box and the quote/reply buttons above. Everything else, apart from the mobile site browsing of the forums is about perfect barring any bugs.

    I haven't read the thread so it might have been mentioned before: if you rotate the screen while using the forum it takes you back to root.

    News and reviwws are excellent though. Finally i can tpu properly while on the can!

    Edit; using a galaxy gio with stock settinhs.

    Buttery smooth and fast on my Droid X2. One minor issue; the reviews have a ton of white space below the text; swiping between pages makes it an overall non issue but it's something to look at.

    Everything is working on Samsung Galaxy Nexus. 4.0..

    Only issue I see is re-sizing of the images..

    Take for instants Your PC ATM or Sexy Hardware.. Images show as the size the person took..
