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

I can find the Cutting Edge Information thread, but not the cutting edge thread itself. If I press the "Subscribed" soft key I see a couple of subscribed subthreads. Oh, well....

Press the bar with the word bubble above the threads/sticky bar. I believe that is what you want.

Glad to help.
I think this app needs more work to make using it easier and less confusing. Obviously somethings aren't ...well..obvious or intuitive.

I sent this email to the developers:
"Morning, This app is working great on my HTC Inspire. I do have a suggestion for a feature, the ability to block specific threads a user isn't interested in. This morning, using the current feature, I had to weed through 95 posts, many on threads that I don't have any interest in. It really would be nice to only see those threads of interest. Is that possible? All in all a great app, good job." This would eliminate a lot of clutter.
And no, I don't want to have to subscribe to each thread I have a interest in reading.
