Amazing. Good to see this has been produced; will check out the Apple version.

When one is made for the Windows phones, I will be fully happy.

EDIT: Posted on android market
***
Works pretty well, only a few bugs of notice.
Spoilers do not open
On your profile, new lines within your profile inserts ugly <br> tags which are visible.
Unicode does NOT render properly, nor do custom usertitles of staff members which have HTML formatting codes in them. Recommend striping html entities like that.
-------

New bug, inserts size tag seen above. This post was originally posted from PokeCommLite, and edited from the computer.

When you're viewing the content preview of blogs and/or threads, it shows the HTML markup in them instead of just the text. Same with profiles--if I view my profile on it, the information in the textboxes (claims, etc.) have <br> tags displaying if I hit enter in it. And my usertitle's HTML shows.

Also I don't like the lack of latest-thread on the forum display but I could live. :( At least a latest post time/date or the on/off icons for new posts would be nice though?

Glad the Android one came out first though! xD

Pachy: WTF? What part of do not post the bugs on the android site did you not understand?


Yes we're aware of the markup issues.. its usually happens in a css coded threads

We know there will be limitations as its pretty much designed for a vanilla vB install and well PC has a ton of custom stuff.

Comments on Android Market can be edited or retaken, and ratings are far from final. I apologize but I DO rate apps honestly and truly to encourage bugs to be fixed. I know this annoys the snot out of developers, but it usually works wonders. :3
EDIT: Modified/removed comment and boosted to 5 stars to prove point. DO: Fix bugs or add to a "Known issues" header to description so you're not inundated with poor ratings. Then, low ratings by stupid people can be down-voted as not helpful.

Perhaps do some sanity checking on the vB end to make sure the mobile app doesn't get content it cant parse?

the point of this release is for us users, well those of you with an android device, to test this and report bugs.. HERE on PC.. so we can address them with the vB mobile dev guys.

Mmkay. Make sure that's obvious on the app's description so that people notice. (I do read that because it's essential to know what permissions are required and what, if any bugs do exist that the dev/poster is aware of)

      The apps pretty good :D even on a small screen which my phone has its all working fine.

      I have a question though, when the site has a database crash will the app goe down and if it does will it have an error page like the site does?

          If Apple don't approve because it's Pokemon, upload the ipa somewhere so that people with JailBroken iDevices can still use it. =)

              I like it, but as noted it does have some issues.

              I've seen the <br /> code on user profiles. I've also seem the HTML user titles, it shows the HTML instead of rendering it.

              Spoilers not opening as said before.

              Also noticed that when viewing an album on user accounts it overlays the pictures on top of each other.

              Great work who ever coded it much appreciated.

              *I noticed that when I posted from App, that it puts "[FONT="a"][COLOR="a"][SIZE="a"]" before the post, these are not valid code, so I don't know why they are there.

              [SIZE="a"]The app is very nice! Loads incredibly fast compared to regular PC. I especially like how useful subscribing to threads is when using the app. I used to find it tedious to check them.

              I haven't noticed any broken html bugs, but maybe that's just me. As you can see it does apparent do the font=a, color=a, size=a thing. The one thing I did notice is that the app does not handle horizontal screens all that well.

              Like, I can just flip my phone on it's side and it will detect it and display in landscape mode. The benefit is mainly that the virtual keyboard keys are a lot bigger.

              The app home page is veeery scrunched in landscape mode.

              Also, totes posted this from the app.[/SIZE]

                It just gives a general can't connect to server error. That's what I was getting earlier today at least.

                    Haven't found any problems with it at all. It was a little hard to navigate at first but once you get the hang of it its easy to use. The more I use it the more I love it.

                    Want to go on PC? There's an app for that.

                    ...I had to say that. But this is a great idea, glad to see it finally launched.
