Hi!

I'm updating the mobile app which WILL APPEAR AS A NEW APP IN THE PLAY/APP STORES. I do not know when this will happen because both Google and Apple do not say when it will happen. There may be a period of time when neither app works (we are only allowed one site active at a time) but I will do my best to give you guys a heads up if this does happen.

If you like the app - great! I would encourage you to atleast test out the mobile version available via the web browser of your choice on your phone / tablet so that in the event that the app doesn't work for a day or two that you have an alternate way of using the site during that time.

When it appears as a new app in the stores I'll also try to gives folks a heads up.

Nip

PS: people like both the app and the mobile version - we plan on supporting both indefinitely.

Does this now work with Twitter so we can stop the nonsense of copy and pasting tweets text?

If so, I'll donate $200 right now to SoSH.

I think that the new version will, though I haven't tested it yet. It may conflict with the thing here that we use to embed tweets.

I could have tested it, but that's a pain in the balls. It's a new version anyhow so nobody has to "upgrade"

Still no embedded tweets and now ads on every page. Going back to the old version for now. Thank you for the efforts to update the app nonetheless!

I like the layout of the new app, but I'm having one issue I can't figure out. In the old, after viewing a thread in the "Recent" (or whatever it was called) view, it would be marked as Read by unbolding itself. Anyone figure out how to do that? If not, how would I go about installing the old version? I just got a new phone Friday so it's only ever had the new app on it.

Go into settings ( three bars on top left of the main screen) and then go to "Unread Handling". Check the boxes to grey out read discussions and remove read from unread tab

I've been having trouble connecting with the app the last few days. I haven't updated it yet. Should we still not update the Android version?

Thanks

Holy shit, Twitter appears in the app now. It still displays inside a bracket (unsupported video) but the text is displayed and clickable. A Merry Christmas to all!

Do you mean tapatalk or the standalone SoSH app? Android or iphone?

Anyone else not able to get SoSH to load on Tapatalk? I can get the one other Tapatalk site I use to load fine, so I’m guessing it’s not the app.
