Download the new PF App for iPhone/Android phones! Please write rate and review too :)

It's based off the TapaTalk app, so if you are used to that, using this one will be very similar.

Download for Android phones:

Got it! Reviewed it!

I noticed the Profile part loads as blank. I say someone gets banned for this.

It doesn't support tex and I can't seem to find a way to list my subscribed threads. :| Looks pretty clean though. :)

The subscribed threads are in Favorites I believe.

Tell me when it supports LaTeX. Until then I don't really see the point.

I experimented with Tapatalk for a few minutes until I realized I couldn't actually participate in any discussions I was interested in due to lack of math formulas. Deleted Tapatalk and got a refund.

This is a problem and will hope to get it resolved.

What about the old iPhone app? Is that one dead? I hope so :smile:

I'm so used to the web forum and a bit Aspergers about change but so far the thing I don't like is that when I view a thread and want to reply, I don't see a way to log in and have to go back to the subforum or main forum to press on the Login button but I don't know if that's a limitation of the backend or if this PF app was designed that way

Also I think it's kind of annoying to hit the menu button on my phone and then hit the Reply button to reply to a post but that might be because I'm used to the web view.

Ohhh I love the 'Dark mode' though. Never saw this option in the web view

also one thing I really dislike is that I can't view LaTeX. it's ok if I can't type it because it's rather bothersome even on a smartphone, but I would at least like to be able to read it

Downloaded, used, loved, rated and reviewed. Much better than the mobile skin I've been using in a smartphone browser till now. (I can even see avatars.!) All functions are much simplified compared to the mobile version of the site. The ad in the bottom of the screen keeps appearing and disappearing randomly and I misclicked on the ads a couple of times.

The image that is shown while the app is loading looks lame in my mobile.

Maybe it was designed for larger screens..

Can you make the Android app available on the Google TV? It isn't currently; it says "This item is not compatible with your device."

I think there is some bug or glitch regarding white spaces around the quotes. I think a more tight design would be better.
For example compare the two screenshots, app vs browser.

Just hit 200 installs!

Nice! Now if only we can get 20,000 we can get that Super Secret Squirrel Decoder Ring we've been wanting!

Sorry folks, the iPhone app will be a little be longer. Apple rejected the app with a confusing reason. I'll figure it out. I must say the Android store process is vastly superior to the Apple store.

What's the reason they gave? iOS has its disadvantages, but, they are more stringent in their security measures, which is good. But in our case, I don't see the possibility of ill-intent. Maybe a lapse in the security of the app?

We can use one of those here on campus... we have bazillions of squirrels to decode.
