An integrated login via the app itself would be awesome  :-)

If you go straight to PM's as an example you get access denied

Great starting point though :-)

EDIT: This is on an IPOD Touch

Yeah I agree, It's surely nice and better than I expected on the iPad.

Not entirely sure what the youtube button is for ?

Also a bigger font in the reply box would be nice, it is really too small now, especially compared to the font size of the already posted messages....

Is that iPad or iPhone? I think stuff like that we can surely work on, just so long as we get the feedback! Though I don't really know why I'm saying 'We', I didn't write it

PS: I don't know that we want to give too much away about what may be coming in the future but as the FAQ page says, there surely will be more to come, and I know we've spoken over the course of the development of the app about the login so watch this space on that one.

I don't have an iPad any more, but suffice to say that DanP has worked very hard on this for some time now. A few of us moderators were using it for testing purposes. For quite some time I used it as my only window to the forum and got on just great with it. You look at adding this and adding that and in the end, you reach the point where all the obvious known kinks and crashes are resolved so you have to give in and rather than including the world and all the features you'd love to, you have to get a version out so all the rest of the members can play too

But provided we're still here after the world ends on the 21st I'm sure you can expect new versions...

I use iPad. My wife has an iPhone and my son an iPod Touch so I can test around ;)

Will have a look at the font size on the other devices to compare....

Anyone else having issues with ipad(3) and the aspect ratio?

Fine with iphone 4 for me but it's cutting part of the screen off at the too, bottom and right for me on iPad.

Maybe found a small bug in this. Logged in, I can't open and view messages from my 'out box'. I can read messages in the 'in box' though.

Ordy, I'm working on your aspect ratio issue and have recreated it in another new dummy app.   Very odd.   
 
For your connection issues,  I take it you weren't suffering from any connectivity issues that day?   The app does implement a timeout if it doesn't get a response in a timely fashion (as required by Apple).   I can look to increase the timeout if this is something that happens a lot?
 
Jim, I think this issue also occurs using the Safari browser when using the Mobile CSS view.   It will hopefully be corrected in the next version of WebWiz, I'll check with the guys over there just in case.
 
Dan

OK - small request, if you genuinely like and use the app, or maybe if you don't could you leave the app a review on the app store? We've been hit by what looks like a few suspect reviews giving it 1 star (yes, I could speculate, but I won't). Now, there's nothing wrong with getting 1 star reviews if that's genuinely what it deserves but as you will see when you look they're really not genuine reviews - well, not all anyway.

So, some proper ratings and reviews would be appreciated please. They don't have to be 5* if you don't think it warrants it but negative reviews just for the fun of it will sadly impact the developers commercial prospects which in turn could affect real world 'putting money on the table' type things and that's not on 'just for fun'.

Cheers all
