    I don't care for it either. Right now I'm using my mini tablet and going through a regular browser. there are a lot of mobile apps that a lot more clumsy then just going through the web.

    Can't say I'm crazy about it either. Although it seems faster.

    I've been running both side by side until the old version stopped working today. I liked the old one better as well. It also allowed you better post editing control.

    I don't like mobile apps on sites, period. I use full site when possible, though some site's throw me to mobile by default, some don't have a full site option.

    It doesn't crash as much for me with is great. I suppose if I have a gripe (beyond the shocking fuschia color scheme :eek:) it is when viewing the listing of threads in a sub-forum, it previews the first post in each thread rather than the last post. Perhaps there's a setting I need to adjust.

    Otherwise it's got some nice features vs the old app.

    I don't mind it either, the only complaint I have is that when clicking a thread, it always takes me to the last post rather than to the beginning of the thread, even if I have never been into the thread before. Bad UX.

    +1 on every site, mobile pages and apps just do not take the end user in mind, just strictly how can I make this function on a mobile.

    I always use the full site on everything from my galaxy s3 to my tablets. Full web pages are way more user friendly and easier to navigate.

    Just the opposite for me, which I hate.

    Just got the new app. Couldn't figure why the old one wouldn't load, then I found it. Defiantly gonna take some getting used to. But it works.

    Sorry I'm not a fan of the new app. I always look in on strat talk when I'm out and about. Well that will not be happening now. I'll stick to my home computer when logging in.
    Sorry guys it's a

    I have been happy running the original App for quite a while, unfortunately the new App will not run on my old version of Android; I get the message"your device isn't compatible with this version". So I guess its back to the web version, which means small writing, with zooming panning around until I get a new phone. Is Father's day coming up soon? :neutral:

    Haven't been here in awhile. To my surprise here is the new mobile app. It's terrible. Profile section is the worst. But it just doesn't look good, functionality aside. Has anyone who didn't like it initially adjusted to it?

    Funny how much interfaces play a roll in addition to content.

    At least ST hasn't gone the way of Harmony Central.
