    Guys,
    I've been using for a while the milepoint app and not its really unstable.. the app crashes all the time for no particular reason. I open, use it for a while and then it crashes.. I have an iphone 5s with all the updates. Does anybody have the same problem or its just me? Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem... used to work great... the last 6 months or so it is basicly non-usable.

    We've been having some issues with timely updates from the developer. Wish I had a better timeline but we're working on it. I'm a frequent user of the app so equally frustrated.

    I am running on ios8 and iPhone 6. Occasional terminations. Biggest headache is incorrect posting of signature and editing existing post reformats horribly. Otherwise more than tolerable even in its current state. Looking forward to the new app.

    No guarantee on timing, but I can confirm that we have started down a short-term path to provide a better app solution. It may involve some changes but we hear the concerns. We feel them as well (I'm a big user of the app).

    More to come soon, just don't let anyone else know. Our little secret. As Randy says, winky, winky.

    I have been playing around for a day with the latest version of the Milepoint app on IOS on both my ipad and iphone. I have to say, major improvement in stability! No more crashes after browsing pages, especially on the ipad in landscape mode, it's a joy to work with now. Nice work guys!

    Just downloaded the iOS app yesterday. Will use it for a while to see how it plays out.

    ETA: does not appear to be an interface to add a signature from the app ?

    Second thought on the iOS app. Does not seem to refresh unread count on main panel. And no way to refresh from main panel. If I go into unread for example and come back out then it indicates the number unread. Not before.

    Third thought. When in subscribed, no method to mark all read. The option is there for unread and for participated.

    #4: count of unread only shows for unread listing and not others even though same unread posts are part of subscribed and participated.

    Even if you set the Auto Refresh in Settings to Always?

    Yes. Are you saying for you it always is refreshing at the top level?

    No unfortunately it doesn't with that setting, it only refreshes after selecting a menu at top level.

    I think that option is meant to be for periods of sleep of the app. It would be useful to be able to refresh at the top menu level.

    Indeed that would be nice, either refresh on start up of the app, or pull down the menu at top level to force a refresh.

    Once the redesign is complete we'll be making an app and looking over some previous suggestions/making sure everything is in there. We used something this time not specific to Xenforo and not custom built.

    That said, it's definitely an improvement over the last app/developer. Sorry it got so bad at the end.

    Issue #5 cannot seem to embed a video yet. Use the bbcode option but after posting the image/video does not appear in the post.

    I was able to embed a video, but I can't view the video in the app. I had to go to the "full site" (browser version) to see it.

    I'll look into that one.

    I do like the ability to hold down the mark all read check mark and not have to get a popup.
