    No problem. Now that I've used it for a minute, it's really hugely improved.

    - See if someone is online
    - You can report posts
    - The participated bug is fixed
    - Subscribe/unsubscribe option
    - Some graphical improvements
    - No longer forgets last post read position

    I'm sure there's more, but that's the quick list.

    I love the new update. It appears to be much better and has even added some nice features. However, I have a question (maybe my brain just isn't working good lol).

    When you are looking at a list of threads, what are the numbers in the gray or green bubble next to the stars in each thread, (ex. 1K/4K, 22/147, etc.? I cant figure it out....

    I hope you can understand what I'm asking. I tried to upload a screenshot, but it FC'd every time I tried. Is this a bug or is anyone else able to upload images?

    I wondered about those numbers too. When you upgrade it installs as a whole new app and you will need to enter your username and password over again.

    The number on the left is the number of comments, the one on the right is the number views. I.E. 4K = 4000

    Ahh, that makes sense. I thought it was something along those lines. Thanks for the clarification.

    EDIT: The number on the left must be the number of replies, not including the OP...

    This update is all screwed up for me. When I scroll through the forums, it switches from light to dark and when I click on my favorites and then click the Thunderbolt forum, it tells me "no topics in this subforum".

    Update: I tried unsubscribing a favorite and that's not working either. Is there any way to get the old version back?

    Never posted an image with the app but I'm sure it'll be fixed soon in an update really like the app though although it doesn't help my addiction to droid forums at all lol

    Removed the app last night and tried installing it again this morning but am still having the same problems. Not sure if it's Thunderbolt related but the previous version was working fine. Uninstalled again and won't be trying again until another update is released.

    Yep. +1 here. I'm also getting a bug where it doesn't show any threads as unread in "participated."

    EDIT: Now participated IS showing unread....

    ??? Maybe it just does what it wants haha.

    Jammin!

    App has been solid for me since updating. Actually seems to process faster for me.

    I've tried the update twice and will stay with the old version. I usually read all the new posts but the new version won't let me. It marks all read after the first page.
