I'm loving this app, pretty easy to navigate once you get the hang of it! One thing I can't seem to figure out though is why I get double notifications, everything comes through twice

Confusion is in charge... or alternate realities rule

My observation from using the free version for awhile, decided to get the premium version as it should be better then the free one and I would be contributing in a minor way to XDA.

Unless I have missed something in the downloading from google play, the premium version does not function as well as the free version. unable to have my favorite show; not able to have threads first then forums, To me it appears the free version is more useable then the Pro version.

tapatalk app gives more functionality then the Pro version.

Maybe, it is operator error for not knowing how to unlock all the Pro upgrades to enable the app to perform better then it is now.

just my observations regarding how the Pro version is not indicative of the title it bears...

now that i got it off my chest, how does one use the Pro version and where are the hidden settings to get the better functionality of the app?

Excluding selected subscribed threads?

I love using the XDA App, but I have one major problem with it, which I don't think is covered, and I don't think there is an answer for it either. I have some threads that I am subscribed to for what I consider 'archive' purposes and I would prefer not to see new posts to these threads from my control panel (talking web interface at the moment). I have put these threads into a different folder. I had hoped it was possible to exclude a thread folder from the control panel, but learned that is not possible with the web interface. It was suggested to me that I bookmark each thread folder and access my threads that way, rather than through the control panel, which is an inconvenient but viable workaround. However, there is no way to do this with the XDA App, I have to see new posts for ALL my threads. IF there is a workaround, I'd be glad to hear it, but I'm not thinking there is...

(Sometimes have to switch to the web interface for more complex posts too, but that's no big deal...)

(EDIT: come to think of it, MAYBE I should just bookmark these threads and unsubscribe from them... :rolleyes:)

Hi! First of all... sorry for bad English... I`m German and not good in learning languages. I only want to say many thanks for these useful informations! I didn`t see this app before. Think I will try it later!

    I'm writing this guide to the XDA app because there are a few guides already but they only cover use of the desktop site.
    This is for all of you who use the app instead, but may not know how to do certain things.


    I will keep this as simple as possible so it's easy for anyone to follow what's being said.

    If anyone has a suggestion as to what I should add, or if I should remove or include anything, please let me know by either posting in here of sending me a PM.


    To start with, for those who haven't got the xda application, the free version can be found here. But I'd suggest buying XDA Premium because it's ad-free, has a few features which the free version doesn't and it's donating money to this wonderful site :)


    Right, now you've got the app it's time to show you around.

    Across the top of the app you will see different tabs for you to choose from.
    J2z04.png

    I'll tell you what each of these tabs contains and what you can do.

    Latest
    0kGfa.png

    As you can see above, you can click on either Unread, All and Participated.
    *Unread - This allows you to view the last 1000 threads from across the site except for those where you're the latest person to comment.
    *All - This is similar to Unread but shows the 1000 latest threads, whether you've been the last to post or not.
    *Participated - This allows you to view all of the threads that you've posted in.


    Forums
    DKuOh.png

    This is where you'll find all of the different forums across XDA. This includes a ton of device specific forums, a general discussion forum, and forums dedicated to the development and hacking of different OS's.


    Favorites
    F7pTO.png

    As you can see, we have 2 options here.
    *Forums - You can subscribe to a whole forum here, just as I have for my devices. This is a good idea if you're helping out in your devices forum quite often.
    *Topics - At some point on xda, you'll probably find yourself subscribing to a thread so you can easily keep up with it. This is where all subscribed threads are placed.
    I'll explain how to subscribe to a thread/forum later on.


    PM
    cnNI1.png

    If you want to check your PMs or which PMs you've sent, you need look no further.
    You'll easily be able to notice if you have received a new PM because the top message to show will be highlighted (see pic above)


    More
    7ouT9.png

    This tab gives you the following options :
    *Profile - View your own profile to see how many posts/thanks you've had and your general information.
    *Who's Online - Simply shows you every user who is currently on.
    *Search - Searching is one of the biggest things for you to do if you want to find out information. To make searching easier, only search for keywords rather than the whole question.
    *News - This is great for viewing stories on the Portal, without being on the Portal. It shows the most recent portal posts, just as the desktop site does.
    *Settings - You can change theme, font size, in-app signature(I'll explain this later), preferences etc.
    -*
    02jAU.png
    fQTbS.png

    --*Display Style - This gives you a choice of a few styles and themes for the app.
    --*Font Size - Here you can change the font size from small to very large.
    --*Default View - You can choose what you want to load up right away when you open the app. Choose from Latest, Forums, Favorites or PM.
    --*Notification - Here you can choose which push notifications come through to your device, how often to check for notifications as well as select a ringtone for when they come through.
    --*Prefix Display - You can change the options to either No Prefix, Only in Topic View, Only in Thread View or Both Topic and Thread.
    --*Use 24-hour format - Tick the box to have 24 hour time displayed or un-tick the box to display AM/PM.
    --*Posts per Page - Change how many posts you wish to view on a single page. Choices range from 10 to 50.
    --*Loading Behaviour - You can change how it loads up a thread. It will either Show Oldest Post, Jump to First Unread post or you can Jump to the Newest Post.
    --*Tapatalk Signature - You can choose to have no in-app signature, Sent from [enter device name] using xda, Sent from [enter device name] or you can set your own.
    --*Customize - Customize your in-app signature to whatever you'd like (as long as it's in accordance with the Forum Rules).
    *NOTE* Your in-app signature is different to your site-wide signature and will also show as being part of your post. So please be sure to separate your post from this signature
    --*Enable BBCode - Tick to enable BBCode. If you're not sure what BBCode is, or want a full list then click here.
    --*Enable Smilies - Tick/un-tick to enable/disable the use of smilies.
    --*Show Avatar - Tick to show people's avatars. Un-tick so no-one's avatar is shown.
    --*Display English - Choose whether to display all writing in English or not. The default language will be whichever language your device is set to.
    --*Save files to - Choose where to save all files which you download using the app.
    --*Search History - You can clear the history of all searches you've made whilst using the app.


    *Logout - Lets you logout of xda but can still view the forums.
    *Exit - Exits you from the app right away.
    17
    Stickies - If you wish to view the stickied threads of whichever forum you're in (and I suggest you do), then you need to click the Stickies tab inside a sub-forum. (See pic below)
    There you will see the threads which have been placed there because they contain important and useful information which will help you out.

    bRVBb.png



    Creating A Thread - Before I explain how to create a thread, please follow my suggestion to read the stickied threads first. Also, please read this great guide by saywhatt - [HOW TO] make a good THREAD, POST, QUESTION and POLL and that will explain exactly what to add to your threads to make it the best it can be!

    Now it's time for you to learn how to create a thread for yourself :)

    Once you know for sure you're in the correct forum, you're ready to start.

    *When you're in the list of threads in that forum, what you need to do is to press the menu button on your device. Doing so will bring up the following options -
    djwVi.png


    *Simply click on the New Topic option and you'll then be brought to the following screen :-
    SUTQs.png


    *In the Subject box is where you need to put the title of your thread. Please be sure to follow the guide mentioned above so you can make the most suitable title possible.
    *In the box below the Subject box is where you type your post. This will be the first post of your thread so, following the advice is the guide previously mentioned, make sure to include all relevant information, any questions which you need to add and explain it all as well as you can and make sure it can be understood by other people.
    *Once you've made sure your thread is ready to be posted, click Submit and you'll be taken back to the list of threads and you'll see the new thread at the top of the list.


    Thanks Button - The thanks button is there so we can click that, rather than posting "Thanks" whenever someone helps us out.
    To locate the Thanks button, click on a comment and the following menu will show up :-
    zTu3c.png

    Simply click on the Thanks button and voila!

    The screenshot above had some other useful stuff in aswell.
    *Reply - Click this to simply post in the thread.
    *Quote - If you want to reply to a specific post, click Quote and it will show their message on with your own. The other person then knows exactly who you're speaking to.
    *Multi - The same as Quote but can be used if you want to reply to numerous people in a single post.
    *Share - This is so you can share the post/thread to your favorite social network sites, through a text message or even share it across Bluetooth.
    *More - This option has a few more options to give you. By clicking More, you can send the user a message or view their profile, you can copy the info of the whole post or just a link to that post and you can also open the post in your web browser.


    Sending a PM - At some point on this site you may feel the need to send someone a PM but don't know how to.
    Follow these steps and you'll be sending messages in no time.
    The first way of doing this is to go to the PM tab, start a new PM and type in the persons username (as shown below)
    oxbX2.png

    If you want to send the same PM to multiple users, then after each username but a ";".

    Another method is to click on the users display picture and it'll take you to their profile.
    Then click on -
    ycVHJ.png


    Reporting - Unfortunately, we can no longer report a users posts via the app. What we must do instead, is click on the users comment, click on More and then click on Open In Web Browser. From there, follow the guide Getting A Moderators Help.

    Posting pictures - If at any point you wish to upload a photo into a thread, click on the camera icon when you're in the comment box and you'll get an option to upload from either Gallery or take a pic straight from your Camera.
    NGdMA.png

    As you can see from the pic above, you'll then get the options 'Tapatalk Hosted' which means you can actually have the picture mixed in with your writing (how I have in this thread). Or if you choose 'This Forum' it will pin the picture to the bottom of your post as an attachment.

    Using an Image Host - Sometimes while trying to upload a picture on XDA, you will discover that the picture you've just uploaded (using the method above) shows up as an error and will just keep loading. This will be because there's an error in the system somewhere.

    Instead of it putting you off uploading a picture, you can always use an Image Host app such as Imgur. What this app allows you to do is to upload the picture to that app and then Imgur will be able to host the file instead. It can then be displayed on xda by using certain BBCode.

    Subscribing to Forums & Topics - If you're constantly looking through a specific forum or you're in a particular topic quite a lot of the time, you'll probably want to subscribe to the forum/topic so you've got easier access to view it.
    This will explain how to do just that.

    Let's say, for example, that you'd like to subscribe to the entire 'About xda-developers.com' forum. All you have to do is navigate to that forum and simply long press on the forum itself.
    You'll then see the following pop-up.
    HXOkY.png

    As you can see, you're presented with 3 options.
    *You can Create a Shortcut so you can have instant access to the forum directly from your homescreen.
    *You can Mark the Forum as Read, so it will be as if you have read every single topic in that forum.
    *And you can Subscribe to the forum. If you choose this option you are brought to the following screen where you can choose how often you'd like to be notified of changes via email.
    gNFVo.png


    Subscribing to a certain topic is exactly the same.
    Simply long press on a topic to be given the option to Subscribe or Share.
    T9P7x.png

    To unsubscribe from a topic or forum, simply long press again and you'll get a pop-up with the options to Unsubscribe and Change Notification Type aswell as the previous options to Mark as Read and Create Shortcut.
    6
    STOP USING THIS, OR ANY THREAD, AS AN EXCUSE TO MAKE YOUR FIRST 10 POSTS BY SAYING "THANKS".
    THERE'S A BUTTON FOR THAT, SO USE IT!

    Cleanup Requested.

    Thanks for the thread. Really helped.

    Hope you don't mind me adding something I think is helpful.

    A great tool to use when posting is the Spoiler. The use may be covered in other threads, but since this is dedicated to the app, it could help others get up and cracking earlier.

    Basically, the Spoiler gives users the ability to hide long sentences of text giving readers the option of expanding if they wish to read the content. Really useful when quoting OP's or long posts so readers don't have to scroll through long sections.

    Also great for long signatures. Enable bbcodes in settings.

    Format is simple and requires only to type in:

    [ hide] long text, quote or signature [/hide ]

    Without the spaces within the square brackets.

    Users, please help other users by using when possible.
