Accessing this site is fast, quicker than using the native android phone app or Dolphin HD.
Missing all the text formatting and smileys when writing a post. I don't know if adding those is possable.
I like the Push Notification service...very easy to setup.
I like the post editing "pencil" icon.
More to come as I play with it.
Very nice job.

Serious design flaw with this app.

THERE IS NO OPTION FOR NEW POSTS.
I only want a listing of new not a whole days worth of posts.

I noticed that, I agree that the New Post feature is a must have. I don't think this app is meant to replace the whole browser experience though.

I did discover that the "new" posts are indicated with a little blue ball in the upper right corner. I'd still prefer it if it didn't list a whole days worth of posts though.

The iPhone/iPad app doesn't have that either. It's something that will be added hopefully at some point.

Since it is a Android app it is very easy, and quicker, to upload updates to the Market.
I like the blue quote bubbles, cute touch. This just might replace my browser for reading this forum.

Try opening the forum with your Android browser, should get a pop up. I accessed the Market through that. I used Dolphin HD.

I get the pop up and it got to the black bar showing download but, nothing happens it just black bar and under it is say cancel download. Nothing comes down.

With no indication it ever downloaded I went back to home page on phone and saw it had be installed. Weird...but, I have it!

Yep, it's a must have for me. Won't even bother downloading the app until that feature is present.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I logged in on my phone and then hit home and the pop up came up, then I was able to download the app. I still cannot figure out how to log in and make posts but I'm sure I will figure it all out in time.
