It's cool man - find the topic you like, press and hold on it then choose subscribe. It'll then show up under favorites. I believe you have to from the list of topics though, not while you're actually viewing it. Hope this helps!

That is quiet not user friendly, since we have "subscribe" to receive email notifications for new replies...

Talking about confusing, eh?

yes, poorly implemented.

With such a large forum I thought favorites would be helpful to shortcut to the sub-forums I read.

subscribe to make a favorite. to me that implies I would get alerts for all new posts which I don't want. we'll see.

You can shortcut the forums you'd like.
Simply long press on it and a Create Shortcut option is the bottom option.

Also, no you won't get alerts for all new posts. The only way you get alerted for new posts, is if you subscribe to a single thread and change the option to get notified.

Hopefully this isn't too stupid of a question, but is there a search function for the app?

This needs changing to "add forum to favourites" with a heart icon instead of "subscribe." it's confusing if you don't know
