Not sure if there's a plan to update the iPhone app, but I just checked out the latest Tapatalk (upon which I believe the SoSH app is built) and it (finally) has GIF support.

Why can't I see the new subforums like the alternate P&G and the gambling forum on the android app?

Just rebooted the phone and it didn't help.  Do I need to reinstall the app or something?

I think you should have to pass a test to be eligible to install these apps.  Who's with me?
 
So seriously, you won't clear data, but you will uninstall the app?

I tried downloading the app on my android, version 2.3.5, and I was met with the message that my device is not compatible with the sosh app.

Is there any remedy/solution for this?

Get a newer phone?

I knew this would be the first response. But, I'm cheap, so I won't be getting a new phone for a while.
I'm assuming that you are on the latest version of Android that your phone supports? If so your choices are limited. You could perhaps install a custom ROM based on a newer version of Android.

With some spots you could potentially install an older version that doors work with your version of Android but that isn't a choice here because older versions don't exist.

Perhaps you could buy the full blown version of Tapatalk and then get an older version of it via their support?

Oh and bite me GHoff.

Two issues I am having with the iPhone app.

1 I am unable to attach images via the app anymore. I get an upload fail popup that tells me to contact someone on the staff


2. Gifs seem to cause the app to crash.

It's been taking forever for a page to load on the Android app lately.  I thought maybe it was a server issue but on my computer everything is fine.  Is something up with the app?

If you're having problems that are clearly with the app (like soxhop's crashes) you might want to post on the tapatalk forums where they can help with them.

It actually started working again out of the blue.  But I'll go there next time I have an issue.  Thanks, Mr. H.

Is there any update you can release (or that tapatalk has released) for the SOSH app on the iPhone? the app has been crashing nonstop for me... It usually happens when I try and load a new page

The Android app crashes on me frequently as well. It always seems to be when I've switched to a different app and SOSH app is running in the background. 
 
I've also found that the image cache for the app gets huge and takes up a ton of space. I'm wondering if there's an option to put a cap on the size, or have it automatically delete the cache when you exit the app.

I'm pushing out a new copy today.
 
amlothi - we don't control those things with the app so it's kind of is how it kind of is.  You're the only one Ive heard about this causing a problem with so it could be a localized issue.

The Android app doesn't seem to be loading.  I don't use my phone all the time on this site, but it's been about a week since I've been able to.  The iOS app seems fine.

Android app's been working fine for me.  We don't have the source code for it, so there's not much we can do to troubleshoot unfortunately, short of shot-in-the-dark things like rebooting the phone or try uninstalling and reinstalling.

Nip, would it be too difficult to add an icon so someone can add a link to a post?
 
In the android, click on a post (it'll turn blue), then click the menu button (top right, three dots) and select "copy post URL" and then go paste it wherever you want.  I'm guessing the iphone app is similar.
 
([SIZE=13.63636302948px]On the web, that's the thing at the top right of every post (there's a post # and a share icon, click either of them and copy the link))[/SIZE]

I don't see anything like that on the iPhone. When you click the three dots on the top right, your choices are:
  • Reply
  • Share
  • Subscribe
  • Web View
  • Refresh
  • Cancel
 
 
Try share, sometimes there's a "Copy to Clipboard" option under that.

Will there be a Windows phone app at any point? Not that there's huge demand, I'm sure -- but thought I'd ask since I'm getting one and I do love the iphone app.

My guess is that as soon as Microsoft pays the devs to support Windows Phone, they'll begin working on it.

Just keep waiting patiently.

Just downloaded tapatalk on the windows phone...works great for SOSH -- best interface yet, significantly better than the iphone app. Kudos to whomever worked on it.

Hey Nip! Thanks for all of the work on these. They've been great to date. Question for you: I'm suddenly seeing ads when I'm logged in on the iPad app. Is this a byproduct of the upgrade? Not seeing the ads on my phone, but haven't upgraded there yet.

I took the update (didn't notice SoSH was on the list and clicked update all) and the new version won't keep me logged in. It accepts my password but doesn't look like I'm in. If I put in a bad password it tells me so it looks like it is checking that properly.

Any thoughts?

More details - it looks like I'm logged in initially (I can see P&G for example) but the app doesn't remember what posts I have or haven't viewed. And if I go to browse forums the member only areas don't show up until I log in again

I am using the iOS app. Rebooting the phone seems to have resolved most of the issues. I think I'm all set.

Edit: spoke too soon. Looks like on any sort of refresh it logs me out. Using the web version for now. :(

I guess so. It must be a change in tapatalk somewhere, we previously had one at the bottom

I'm having the exact same thing happening to me.
