but back to topic:
#1 Tapatalk is a great base but the xda app isnt really providing anything above and beyond its base. Add more customization and features. There have been many great suggestions but I also see this thread constantly reporting bugs with standard features, I do understand you need to get the basic things working before you add something completely new. Perhaps a post on the portal could bring in some new help, a few extra developers, different sets of eyes and and ideas could get the wrinkles out and some new great ideas flowing. I would love to see this app give me a reason to stop needing to use tapatalk instead.
#2 it would be nice if your xda "contacts & freinds" could sync to your phone contacts, and by clicking them in your contacts app, bring up the option to send PM through xda app. This would also promote using the "friends" feature on the site. this would also require adding a way to view/add/send request for " contacts & friends " in-app now.
