New DBSTalk app should now be able to be downloaded from the app store.

 

It is a Tapatalk based branded app.

So far so good! I suggest anyone with issues do a delete and install new.

I just deleted the app and reinstalled. Seems to have fixed the problem. It also seems much quicker and solved a problem that started yesterday where ads started to appear randomly.

Edit: right after I posted this I started to get multiple crashes. I think I'll stick to the web page for now

In the settings for the app there is an option to clear cache. Try that. I haven't had any problems. Ios 7.0.4 on iPhone 5 here.

If you care to try the FREE TapaTalk version, you can find DBSTalk inside that app.  Wondering if that one crashes as it should be the same as the one they make for us.

Both apps crash 100% repeatable every time by attempting to enter HD Locals : Philadelphia PA thread. Path (off the top of my head) : DirecTV products and services > DirectTV general > DirecTV programming > HD Locals Broadcast Issues > Philadelphia, PA

Does it crash on every thread or just the one? I have found today one thread that mine is crashing on every time as well but it's just the one thread.

How about an indication of where a notification is from? On the DBSTalk app and the Tapatalk app, the Badge Icon will display a number saying I have a notification, but upon opening the app there is no indication as to where the notification is from.

Thanks Andy.  Hopefully you guys will be able to get the update live in the App Store before the App Store freeze coming up.

 

From Apple: 

iTunes Connect will be temporarily unavailable from Saturday, December 21, to Friday, December 27, 2013.

 

During that time, iTunes Connect will not be accessible and you will not be able to submit any apps or In-App Purchases. Processing of any Newsstand Atom feeds will be delayed until after December 27. Sales and Trends reports via the Autoingestion tool will be available but may also be delayed.

 

Also, you should not schedule any pricing changes or apps to go live between those dates. Pricing changes scheduled to take effect in that date range will cause the app to become unavailable for purchase until after December 27. Similarly, apps scheduled to go live during that range will not be released until after December 27.

yeah, what's up with this.  Are club members supposed to be seeing ads?

In regards to the ads....

 

Are you using the FREE app or the DBSTalk app?  In the FREE app, you would as we can not control settings.  In the DBSTALK app, which may go away, you should not.

 

Well, hummm, looking into making sure something did not get messed up, it seems that I no longer have a way to omit groups.  Heck, I do not even see a way to put in my ad id's for the apps to use.  So, not even sure where the revenue is going now.  But that does explain why the site support revenue has gone away from the app. 

 

Andy?
