    I'm using SlideIT seems to work. The biggest problem is trying to log in, when I click username it doesn't auto delete it and it can be hard to type in my username. I'm using Motorola electrify this took me over10 min to type.

    Found an issue.

    The spoilerbuttons don't seem to be working when I click them. Tried multiple threads. Droid X2 with latest version of TPU.

    seems to run fine on my Samsung Galaxy S II with android 2.3, btw reviews is missing categories, and it would be nice to have a option to change text style and size too, and a option to invert the text/background to white on black to save battery

    I'm working on adding push notifications for news and reviews.

    any ideas for that? activating news by default seems bad because of high volume. what about reviews? (~ 1 per day)

    Even with the notifications disabled from within the app, I still rec a notification when the CM case review was published. Using a Galaxy Note with Gingerbread.

    did you manually adjust the settings or just update the app?

    check if re-checking and unchecking the checkboxes in settings fixes the problem.

    indeed it was a nice addition.

    Wizz are you planning to enable replying to comments when viewing the news and review section rather than having to go to the forums. App seems to be working well so far.

    I agree with above post.

    Also i have never got any notification... Do you need to keep the power hungry 4g lte on all the time to get them? I would like it so when ever i enable my 4g it does an update like my email. My batts die to fast with internet on all the time.

    I have an Samsung Galaxy S 4G LTE Aviator..

    are you signed into a google account? the notifications work through google's service, just like most other app notifcations

    this is planned for until after we update the forums to vbulletin 4 (no eta yet). right now it's extremely difficult to code in a decent way. vbb 4 has a web service module that will make things easier

    ah ok i figured it was sonething along those lines. ive messed with vb before, im no coder but i understood enough to realize how complex it can be.

    im just looking for say... click the comments button in the corner, scroll down to the bottom, and click comment. i know that sounds simpler than it really is. considering all the things you do for TPU, i have to say your doing one hell of an awesome job at it. servers, site management, apps, etc, its a lot. kinda reminds me of my clan days, minus the reviews and making apps.

    :respect:
