    For the most part, im pretty happy with this droidforum app. However, the one annoyance I have with it is it constantly goes to the bottom post of thethread when I load it. I would rather it go to the first post of the thread. Is this possible?

    I don't know. But I can tell you that almost all the time I go to the last post and if necessary I read backwards. It's rare to find someone who starts at the beginning.;)

    I'llsee if I can get an answer for you.

    I start from the beginning. Only time I go to the end is if I already read through the topic once and I'm just looking for new replies.

    I like to start from the beginning when I need to know what is going on. So i can help. At the same time for really long threads I will start at the end and read backwards.

    I LOVE the app. Seems like this would be an easy option to add. I prefer to start at the end myself.

    The only issues I have with it:

    Very slow to start.
    Constant Force Close When I exit the app (not when I am using it so it is ok, just weird that it happens... Reinstalled several times)

    Moved to the App section. Most of the time I'm OK with reading from the last post to the first. If I need to get to the top the scroll or arrows work well.

    I'm on the forum app all day long (obviously) so usually i've watched a thread since its infancy and like to be brought to the most recent post. The only thing that does bug me however is if a thread has say seven pages and every time I open it up it drops me on page 4 even though I'm caught up to page 7. Only a minor annoyance though.

    That bugs me as well. I wonder what's causing that to happen?

    I have noticed that if I am browsing the forum with the app, and back out of it to say answer the phone, it will FC on me when I come back to the app. The only time I do not get a FC is when I actually exit out of the app.

    The DroidForums app is run through tapatalk. If you load up any forum on tapatalk it does the same thing. Just like the XDA app.

    I never had it Tapatalk to FC on me like that. I haven't used the XDA app so I can't comment on that one.
