    Yeah that's half a bug. I don't get a count of the number of threads so cannot calculate the last page, but i should really let you go back to the first.
    Odd that they wouldn't open that up in the API. Would a crude hack of counting pages behind the scenes until you get no threads returned do the job?

    Very nice.

    Have you any plans to do something similar to let us launch the app directly into the forum rather than the homepage?

    I'd love this. Since giving up my games console before uni, I pretty much come to EG just for the forum and not for the main website at all.

    Ha, I'd just come in to suggest that it launches straight to the forum! I can cope with 2 clicks though I guess!

    Crash bug:

    If you try switching from group view to another section (I. E. All, Gaming) via a long press, it crashes. Fine with a quick tap though

    I like that the forum is snugged away. I don't want easy access for all those common front page oiks to spoil it all.

    Oh freaky, am I missing the feature or is there no way to quickly scroll to the bottom or top of a page?

    Oh yeah, I've got a broken test too, just tried.. good spot! that'll teach me to add a "view thread" on that menu in haste. 

    If that's about it on the bugs front, I think in a day or two its time to float it down Google play :)

    Think I suggested that to mrpon yesterday.  You know what, I think I might just add that.

    Yeah would be nice that. Quick minor one freak, viewing EG articles within the app when linked in the forums. Was this a feature on the old app?

    Found another niggle.  I was reading the forums, jumped to the news feed to have a look and then jumped back to forums and it ignores my default and loaded 'all' back in.

    Hang on, it might have lost my setting because I've marked it as default again and its working all the time now.

    One thing that would improve usability.. Any chance of putting My Interesting in a more prominent position?

    I use it a lot and I've got to scroll past a lot of groups to get to it.
    I might reorder things, I don't do many groups on here so I don't get to see what its like.  Sight tight, I will have a think.....

    By the way, did you know you can select your default group with a long press on the category name?
    How about adding the ability for users to alter the positioning themselves? Or us that too much of a ball ache?

    One other odd thing... It hasn't appeared in my available apps in Nova and lost the short cut on my home screen. Would it appear after a reboot?

    Edit :
    Just reinstalled and it's there :-)

    Think I've found a bug in v3.02, tap on the forums then tap on the greyed out First or Prev buttons. Firstly it opens the menu, secondly it defaults the forum to Wii sub category! Blasphemy!

    Sorry fella, another quick one. Could we have the "You are currently in: (thread name)" back somewhere?

    While we're on the subject of requests... How about a forum widget? :)

    Great job as always freaky.  Can currently put any number into the thread page control and the app will take you there even if it doesn't exist.

    Don't know whether anyone's asked this or not. Is there a way to search posts, because I can't find it If it exists.

    An issue occurs when (accidentally) changing the orientation of my phone while loading a page, takes me back to the page I was on, but shows the number of the page that I changed to.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    Also the "this looks interesting" button just views the thread, rather than marking it.

    There's no search in the API but I suppose I could hijack the mobile site.....

    Well it was on the old design and I believe it was requested last time. It's certainly good for reference when threads take a derail! Yes you could double swipe up, but then you've lost your place in the thread etc..

    Wouldn't want to be the sole voice on this though...

    Just noticed one. On a review/preview/first look etc you can't see what platforms the game is on. It shows you on the homepage at the top if the article is there but no where else.

    I just went from the homepage to the  forum, having just ticked reviews on the slide out menu, and the top banner has turned grey.

    I did deliberately keep it out because I wanted to simplify the app from a ux point of view but I can see how its useful.

    So I don't think I'll make it default instead I'll play with layouts and make it a preference option...
