I have a question regarding the new option for forum owners to monetise their forums when viewed via Forum Fiend. Will these ads be displayed if I purchase the ad free option? I understand the need for forums to make money to pay for hosting/bandwidth etc, but if they're still visible then the distinction should be made with the "Remove advertising" option.

Also pertaining to that, can you explain the reasoning behind an ongoing subscription to remove the ads, rather than a one off payment? I'd like to support your development of this app, but would rather not sign up for a subscription to do so. I would sooner it just be a larger one off payment. Could this option be added somehow?

Thanks for any help and keep up the good work.

The forum owner ads will not be shown in the ad-free version. I do not really have a way for forum owners to monetize off of people who have paid, but I figured that at least the option to put their ads in the app is better than nothing.

As for the subscription, I really didn't have any grand reasoning for it, it's just what I picked. I suppose I could just change it to a one time charge if people don't like the subscription option. Of course I have to be fair to those who already subscribed. Maybe I will put a choice in the next update where people can pick either/or method.

Ah, excellent. I'd had to revert back to Tapatalk due to getting a crash every second or third thread (many of those reports ill have been mine), and many blank pages on thread list.

I'll give it another go.

BTW, can I confirm whether you can see thread content from the crash reports?

cheers, Martin

I can not see thread content in the crash reports. Here I have attached an example of exactly what the crash reports look like:

Hi. Your app is really nice. Better than tapatalk at the moment. But the performance is really laggy when browsing the forums.
