I've been using Forum Runner (the DBSTalk version) for a while now on the iPad.

The only issue recently is that it seems that keeping track of read threads/posts doesn't seem to be working properly as I'm continually switching between the PC (with Firefox) and the iPad.

If I'm just on the PC, or just on the iPad, it's mostly in sync, and keeps track of the last post read in every thread, but if I swap between the two, then it's out of sync.

Also, when just on the iPad, it's also not always keeping track of last read when viewing with the "subscribed" button, but mostly ok with the "current" button. And if I need to re-start the iPad App, it seems to lose some of the recent history.

Wasn't sure where it was best to discuss this stuff.

Don't know if problems are to be reported here or a new thread started, so I'll start here first.

I've noticed that on the subscribed thread function if someone that's on my ignore list is the last person to post in the thread the iPhone/iPad app show that there's an unread message. The icon won't go away until someone that's not on ignore posts and I read the message and then the icon will go away.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Probably dumb question, but is there any new discussion anywhere on the forum for the recent versions of the DBSTalk iphone app? I'm unable to find any. Looks like latest version is 1.5.6.

You can continue to discuss here if you have an issue. We don't have a lot of control over the upgrade schedule, as we are really just putting our wrapper over Forum Runner's app so you don't have to buy it.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

A question for those of you who use the DBSTalk app... specifically on an iPad with the newest firmware:

Does the app do a good job of giving you notifications?

Several times lately I have received a PM, and I didn't get any notification about it. I'm just curious to see if I'm the only one experiencing this, or if other people are as well.

If I understand you correctly, my notices of PMs come through my e-mail, which I can read on my iPad, of course.

I get them that way too of course. I was referring to receiving notices in the Notification center.

It seems kind of hit or miss with me. If I toggle notifications on/off in the iPad settings menu they'll usually start working again.

Not perfect, but working much better.

Any hope of ever seeing this on Android? There's a LOT of us out there that would like this on Android.

**EDIT**

Hmm, maybe there is. Just found something out there on Android Market(I REFUSE to call it Google Play) from ForumRunner for here. Gonna try it out.

You should update the title so people know Android is available too.

Don't know if anyone is reading this forum, it's not been updated for a while, but I'll ask here first.

Just got a shiny new Ipad 2 tonight and loaded up the DBS app. However it will not let me log in. I use the same info as I use here but keep getting email address in use and enter the correct password messages, any idea why?

Assuming you've checked the obvious (like upper/lower case and having the correct password)... are you sure you are logged out of DBSTalk from your computer before trying to use the iPad app?

You do not need to be logged out of the site to use the app...but you mentioned email address and that is not even used to log in. It should be just your user name and password. Both case sensitive.

So it sounds like you are for some reason trying to REGISTER and you are already registered. Just use your same login details.

Hope this helps based on what you mentioned in your post about email already in use.

Thanks--- for some. Reason I kept ending up on the registration page rather than log in page. I guess after decades of window use I'll need to relearn a few things with the iPad-- that's one of the reasons I bought one.

I learned something new too. I always made sure I was logged out from my browser before using the app. Didn't know that it would be ok either way.

I've recently ( last few weeks ) had the app close itself when trying to join the chat session. Used to work fine. Not sure if an iOS update or an app update clobbered it. Anyone else having that issue? iPad 2 if it matters... I tried rebooting the iPad, btw.
