Sync mobile app across devices?

I love the mobile app and use it almost exclusively (still have to sign in via PC/Mac to vote, but that's another thread).

I generally use the mobile app via an ipad, but also use an iPhone on occasion. Unfortunately, when I switch devices the app doesn't seem to know which threads I've already read - so everything is marked as unread. Worse still, when I move back to the ipad after using the iPhone, everything is again marked as unread.

Would love to see this fixed.

Thanks!

Re: Sync mobile app across devices?

The good news is I can now see pictures from my phone. Since I'm hardly ever at a computer to do surfing (besides work but I literally have no time for play)

Well, it seems to be syncing now - nice job!

Next up, the ability to see member photo galleries on the mobile app :-)

Well, I read all the active threads last night on the ipad. Then this morning, log in to the ipad app and everything is showing as unread. Sure, some of the threads have new additions, but most don't (last post was my own).

Yep - same issues, still not syncing across devices using the app.

In fact, even on the same device, the app seems to forget what threads I've read. On several occasions using the ipad app (love the new colors BTW) while reading in the "latest" category and only in the "unread" section, I've hit the button to mar all as read - it works. Then I move to the "participated" or "all" section and when I return to "unread" everything shows up as unread even though I just marked it all as read

Also, on occasion if I just drag down on the screen to refresh, everything I've just read (and was not showing in the unread section) pops up again.

To be clear, I like the app and appreciate all your efforts. I hope this helps narrow down some of the lingering development issues.

Thanks!

Miecha, I thought that only happen to me. I hate the fact when I get notifications for unread forums that I just posted on a minute before. Other than those issues I like the app update.
