Default APF Android mobile app now available

The APF Android app is now available!

You can see its features and download it for free here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...etin.build_967

It works on Android devices release 1.6 and higher.

***

For those running iOS devices, that app is also downloadable for free:
Introducing APC iPhone App

The upcoming release of the iOS app will fix bugs and expand some functionality (I'm not sure how yet).

Sweet!

If other folks want to test post here from their Android devices, go right ahead.

I'm having some issues with the app... when I select a new page within a thread, it doesn't highlight the page number and I have to scroll down to make the posts from a previous page go away. Also, the only way to get to the individual forums is through the "Menu" button. The "Forums" button brings up a sub-screen within the app itself but doesn't give me any other option than "Forums," which does nothing.

Also, pictures (.jpeg and .gif alike) won't load on their own. I have to select each individual post itself to see the pictures. Not a huge deal, but when trying to scroll through "This is Alaska," it would be nice to just see the pictures when I open the thread.

Ok, so to stop people from calling me an oldtimer who still owns a landline at home, I downloaded this app to my phone. It lets me log on and even knows that I am a moderator. But that's where all the good stuff ends. Once logged on, all I can see are about 6-8 of the most recent threads. It has 2 options below - "Newest" and "Forums." Neither of them work since I choose one or the other and the same 6-8 threads are still there.

Needless to say, I cannot post from this dang Android device.

I think the app is deficient at best and defective at worst. Or it could be my phone. I might need personal tutoring. HSLD, I'm coming over to your house tonight! What's for dinner? Are you in NRT again?

Try the MENU button on the bottom of your phone. What kind of phone do you have (PM if you want)? If it's one of the newer Android phones*, its got the MENU button. Hit that and it should bring up a sub menu that looks something like this:

Home
Forums
Messages
Notifications
My Profile
Friends
Photos

Then, tap "Forums" and voilą, you now have access to the forums.

*Might look like this, obviously second button on bottom left of phone:


Or it might be like the button on the bottom left side of this phone:
