    Our current S.C. app is being phased out (no longer available in the Apple App Store and Google Play store).


    The new S.C. app is now in the Google Play store. Has also been submitted to Apple for approval in the App Store. Currently the app is based on Tapatalk version 1, but we will be updating it soon to be based on Tapatalk 2.


    I think overall it will be a nice improvement on the old app, especially with the Tapatalk 2 update that solves the issue with embedded Flickr images (as well as including other nice improvements).

    I'm replying using it now!
    Neat - and the image display makes the old version look a bit Jurassic.
    Thanks Amin

    you have made the term early adopter seem like it needs a superlative

    does it automagically turn all the improperly attached photos into ones that will display without clicking? if so, i love it!

    hmm well like many an early adopter I've immediately run into a problem ... after shutting down my phone I started the app again and got " unable to connect to forum" .. then the app hung, so I forced a close and killed it.

    So now very time I start it, I get "unable to connect to forum" and then if I try and open it again, it hangs.

    I'd better go back to the Cretaceous version ... :frown:

    Hmm... I've been using it for a while now. Before going back to the old one, maybe try wiping data for the new one - maybe just a one time glitch?

    When I worked in software, I was known for being able to crash any software and operating system ...

    I've tweaked a bit and deleted data as suggested and posting from it now again. Will report back on any further probs
     
  8. Just downloaded both the SC and NEX app to my Sony S tablet. SC seems to work perfectly, NEX does not go beyond the flash screen.

    Thanks for this great option.

    It's been fine since I reinstalled it.

    I have noticed one (very) minor thing about posting from the app, which is that the "smileys" aren't output correctly.

    For instance, using the app's smiley button for a big grin displays correctly as a :biggrin: in the app, but on the desktop version of the forum just shows as ":D"

    Whereas if I post a
    Code:
    :biggrin:
    here in the desktop version, it shows up as
    Code:
    :biggrin:
    rather than :biggrin: in the app ...

    I bet that's all as clear as mud :smile:

    I'm having technical issues - our old app developer hosed my Apple account, and the app basically got removed from the approval queue. Now I'm getting various errors trying to resubmit it. Apple's submission process is a huge pain in the neck, but when I can catch a break from work I should be able to get this sorted out. The other apps (FujiXspot, LeicaPlace, TalkNEX) were not affected, and Apple actually approved them pretty quickly.

    I was inserting.... Um. What? Bad iPad! "I was wondering" what was taking so long; I had been checking daily for new goodness! Hope it gets cleared up for you and us all soon!
