And thanks to you for a great app and the quick response! Much better (in both respects) than the folks at Tapatalk IMHO.

I didn't think to try posting again to get the draft back...but it makes sense.

Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the next round of testing.

Bug: Subscribed xda topics list keeps going blank. Clearing cache solves it only temporarily.

Feature request: please add subscribed sub forums.
In small communities ff is really awesome, but in communities like xda it's a Pita.
Beside from that, ff is really the better tapatalk.

Maybe it's only today. But on xda ff is very slow. On my other boards it works fast enough.
Second: The favorite shows on last level forum. Ie: xda→ xperia t, tl, tx, v(fav)→ xperia t android development(fav)
In this case ff show only the last favorite with others I had also favored this sub forum.

Third: It will be nice, that I can see the topic while I wrote an answer.

So far so good.
Thanks for the great work. :

one more thing... a cool-to-have-down-the-road feature request: change pages by swiping the screen left or right.
That's a good Suggestion.

How about app translation? I can do the German translation of the app.

In landscape mode I do not know what users are shown on right side. Can I hide them to get more space for the threads?

In portrait mode - I personally use them most - it's difficult to recognice if there are more unreaded pages left. Maybe a different icon to show that there are some unreaded pages are available could be a solution.
