    The existing MP mobile app is not seeing anything new on the new InsideFlyer ... Tapatalk seems to be OK ... will there be a new mobile InsideFlyer app?

    There will be a replacement coming soon that's very similar to the current one. The timing was difficult getting it out there, but the Milepoint one should have an update to change it out sooner than later.

    Down the road we're looking to have a custom solution as well.

    Eagerly awaiting a solution for small footprint devices.

    Is Tapatalk not useable by you?

    Tapatalk is an okay solution for now. There was an issue with our branded app, but it's in the process of getting through the app store and will hopefully launch as an update soon.

    Actually I am finding Tapatalk quite useable. The Timeline gives me all threads and a quick and easy way to mark a thread as read. Good features.
    I also like being able to use emojis

    The branded app is built using Tapatalk as well. The custom app in the future will of course have everything built from the site, but they're working nicely for now.

    Is there any work underway or plans for a functional android app? The old Milepoint branded one with the Inside Flyer skin still isn't working.

    iOS app now restricts edits to every so many seconds? Seriously?? Why are you limiting when I can edit a post I made?

    OK. I'll look at why that's there and update. Sorry for the change. I was not something we intentionally added in this release.

    Another issue with the new app. Someone puts a link in the post. You cannot click on it! It thinks you are clicking on the post to edit etc. Seems the quality testing was very poor on this rollout. Simplest example. Take the link you guys embedded in the signature. I took out the link as a result.

    Auto refresh does not seem to work as in previous app. Will come back to phone after 15 min and bring back up same page from sleeping phone. Need to pull down refresh.

    Platform: iOS.

    You can adjust the refresh rate of the app from the menu (top right) -> settings -> advanced settings -> auto-refresh.

    Mine was and is set to 'always' already. Does not function as advertised. I had already checked this already. Also tried to add the image after by editing the post. It does not show it inline rather says 'view attachment'. So many things broken in this new release. Of course you cannot click on the link below in the app as that is broken too

    Take any post in the app. Tap on it. Choose 'More' Click 'Web view'. Nothing happens.

    More on this. Coming back to the app after a while does show the time since last post in each entry being updated. But it does not refresh the page to show new post entries. So something knows enough to refresh the times just not a proper complete refresh as it should.
