I am really liking this app. I have an Android Incredible and was notified the app existed when I visited this site using my phone. Very nice touch.

One Item I would like to see is the ability to eliminate those forums that do not interest me from being visible (or move them to the bottom of the page). For instance since I am a DirecTV subscriber, the DISH forums have no interest to me. It would be nice to be able to hide them.

Another item that would be nice would be the ability to see news on the DBS site. When I use the browser, I open DBS to the home screen and can easily see any new news that is available. Currently the App only opens up to the Forums.

Finally, it would be nice to have new posts more prominently displayed. It is hard for these old eyes to distinquish between bold and normal on the screen.

Once again let me thank you for your hard work and for making an Android App for this site. I am hoping that with just a few more minor modifications, this App will be my goto way of reading these forums.

I understand that Tapatalk is making some changes that make their software not so intrusive. Any chance that you will revisit this issue?? I would like to not have a single app for every forum that I follow.

You can eliminate the forums that you are not interested in. Just go to the "EDIT Options" on the quick links tab. (Must do this on PC) At the bottom of page you can hide all you want to get rid of. Then the next time you use the App they will be gone from there also.

Kevin,

I have been a member since 2008 and had no idea that we could do that. EXCELLENT! Instead of hiding I have just been keeping them collapsed. This is much better.

Thanks!

Allows one to add picture attachment to a post by taking a picture with the phones camera. Very cool.

I just installed this on my Nook Color (running Honeycomb on a SD card, not rooted yet). It looks pretty neat, but how do I log into the site?

Login is under the menu button, at least on the Android phones.

Btw: Flashable zip of Honeycomb on the Nook Color available now.

On the Nook Color there is no menu button. I've tried all of the available soft buttons without getting to the login screen.

I've seen that, but am not quite ready to go that route (maybe later). If I can re-size the partition on the 16 GB micro-SD to be able to access more than 1.3 GB, that should give me adequate performance.

I kinda suspected that :(.....keep in mind that the Nook isn't a "Android" device as such. Android tablets will have the menu button along with the others found on the phones. For Android apps to run on the Nook some reworking of menus and such will have to be done, at least that is my guess.

Yeah, I agree. At least I can log in using the browser app (I'm using it now).

Edit: I found the menu soft key and was able to log in, but when I tried to post there were three soft keys, Send, Attachments and Cancel, but they wouldn't respond :(

I needed to hide the keyboard for the SEND key to work.

A lot of the operations are not exactly obvious :D
