PF iPhone SE app

    I've tried (I really have) to get my PF app to use my PF user and password from my Keychain but there doesn't seem to be a way. If I use Safari, the info is in there and available. There is no apparent option in the preference for PF.
    Any ideas? I get frustrated telling it again and again.
    [Edit: @Mods - thanks for moving this. I never know where to put this sort of stuff (answers on a postcard, perhaps.) ]

    Hmmm my app seems to remember the login. I haven't signed in for months.

    This is a fairly recent thing for me. I have tried various things - deleting the PF password in the keychain for safari. killing safari, putting the password manually into the password list. Each time I log in I tick the 'keep me logged in" box but it doesn't. Fairly recently, I moved from iPhone 4 to SE but I didn't associate the problem with the change - but I could be wrong. iOS is subtly different for all machines so I wonder is there's a genuine bit of incompatibility. I can't be the only PF member with a new cheaper iPhone and it could be useful to hear from someone who either does or doesn't have this problem.
    Greg. Do you have an SE, by any chance?

    Just to be clear, are you using the PF App or browsing PF using mobile safari browser?

    I have tried both. I ditched the PF app but can't seem to find another copy on the App Store (that's another issue, too). At the moment the problem is on mobile safari but it was on the app, too - which is why I tried ditching it.

    I think you need to manually add PF into your keychain and then when visiting PF you'll get a popup to remember?

    So far so good. I can't remember using TT before. The screen colours are quite different.

    The downside to the App is that the equations aren't processed. It's best for a quick overview of what's happening on PF.

    I thought I ought to report on progress. I ditched the App from my SE. That App had the Blue PF logo and was the one that had been giving trouble. I couldn't find a replacement for that anywhere but I installed the Tapatalk App and that seems not to need me to login every time. It's a different interface completely from the original PF App and it's a bit zippier. The Tapatalk Icon has a white 't' on an red speech bubble.
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, Greg.
