Seeing the app in my updates, though it's for the version we already have (on iPad). Maybe something is about to happen.

I was right. Getting 1.6 now. Thanks to David for all your help on this!

The bugs I had been seeing in short responses are gone it looks like.

Got the update on my iPhone 5, so far OK . But on my iPad 3 it's FUBAR. In landscape mode can't do anything with it. In portrait none of the icons on the bottom of the screen work.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I believe they were working on a further update. What we just got was the version that came out in November. I know landscape was mentioned as being an issue.

Be very careful with the iPad version of Forum Runner.

It has been broken since early November, and many people, including myself have been posting about it.

The biggest issue is that you must initially open the App in portrait mode first, then it will work correctly. And after you kill the App, then you need to do the same next time.

Also, there are other bugs when making a new post, and I've also had the list of threads go blank many times. The 1.6 version on the iPad has problems, and they've known for at least 2 months with no fix.

I'm not one to be very critical in a public place, but I tend to agree with that description recently.

I was very much hoping that the 1.6 version was not released for DBSTalk until they fixed the major bugs. 1.6 is very bad for the general population on the iPad.

It is very easy to recreate the problem on the iPad.

Just open the App for the first time, and the button in the upper right will not work.

Simple, and they've known for 2 months.

Originally, one of the guys over there indicated a new version was going to be released very soon. I didn't realize that 1.6 was such a bad version, I had a lot of issues with the previous version...

I know David Bott is fed up, they dropped the app for AVSForum.

Reading that thread, seems like they really are no closer to a fix...

Zachery has been posting since November 26th that forum owners should notify all users to first open the iPad app in portrait mode.

As I've posted over there, that's seems impossible to manage, especially since the issue has now existed for more then 2 months.

Shame that I didn't see this thread until tonight, I was happy that the DBSTalk iPad App was not updated. Actually, I thought that maybe the lack of a fix and the poor support was the reason why, until I saw the new version tonight and cried.

I'm starting to regret my part in this...I was honestly thinking the inability to correct typos, at least on some posts, and some of the other items was an issue.

Its terrible on iPad2. The whole bottom of the screen doesn't register touches, which makes it painful to use. Bottom = about 20% of the screen from the home button going up

Kill the app totally, then turn the iPad into portrait, open the app, it should then work in both portrait or landscape.

Yep, our posts crossed. It should work fine that way, but every time the app closes completely then you need to repeat. There are a few other minor bugs as well, but that's the biggy.

Using it now.

They are using a library not updated since 2011. Seems like they've had a long time to work on that issue.

Wow Sixto thank you I thought my Ipad 2 was messed up because it didn't respond in landscape mode and I tried the same on SatelliteGuys App also, they should really fix that on a upcoming update so it could work in any mode regardless.
