    Long story, but they tried to add even more advertising... I'm pretty pissed and took it the whole thing off line. I'll get a solution up as fast as I can.

    I downloaded the mobile app and don't use it.
    The standard site is better to navigate with my Iphone.

  4. Does this app have anything to do with all the spammers lately? HRP

    I have been using the mobile app exclusively, to the point where I did not see how good the site looks in the mobile browser (Chrome).

    Ryan is battling on our behalf. No matter the outcome, it appears there is no loss of functionality, IMHO.

    This might be a little off the topic, but I'm need an update on that shiny black coupe of yours, so if you could get on that, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks, -Abone.

    Sad about the app!
    I use it alot !
    Fast, no lack, no problems, except fat thumbs. But that it also an issue on safari.

    I have to shut down all my other app s, just to run HAMB semi-smooth in Safari.
    I'm 88% sure the biggest problem is my phone.
    But I dont know how to fix an IPhone.
    I can ballance 2 set Webers on a four banger and I can rebuild an engine.
    But phones are black magic.

    So I'm looking forward to/hopping for the app to come back up again.

    Writing this took me over 5min. I can do it faster in the app.

    While dealing with this app issue, I'm also gonna rebuild the mobile safari option. Goal is for it to be smooth as shit on both.

    Not working for me. Mine says tapatalk is disabled in this forum. It says contact forum administrator. It has been doing it since this morning. So how do I continue to keep it on my phone?
     
  15. Smooth sailing on Safari. Have not used the app since the change. For me, never ran well after the tune up. Realized that for me, there was no reason for it and removed it.
    I dig that you are passionate about the site and hope you get the app how you envision it.
     
  16. Good for you, Ryan!

    :confused:I don't know crap about APPS, IPods, IPhones, or much else computerized. But I enjoy the forum and knowing we have an administrator keeping things as smooth as possible is great.
    Does sucking up help?:rolleyes:

  18. Mine is dead as well, on both my apple and android devices.

    It is a thing of beauty in the mobile browser on both, though! :)

    I have no explanation of why it still works for some of you. I bet there are a lot of ads?
     
  20. No...the spammers have more to do with the fact that site visits/page views are through the roof. Unfortunately, sites with tons of traffic grab the attention of the "enterprising" spammer....fortunately, we're on to them and are working to keep them shut down. Just a growing pain...

    I miss the phone booth down at the service station. Hell I miss the real service station.
    Am I the only guy still using a tower and keyboard at a real desk?

    I'm usually up at all hours of the night, so I tend to be around when these idiots start posting. I immediately send you a report. They are easy to spot because their user names are really weird.

    As for aps, I am lucky I know how to use a cell phone. Aps and all of that stuff is waaaaaaaaaaay beyond my old brain.
