    It's a smashing bit of kit, I've obliterated Blink feed from it which makes it a more grown up phone.

    Hardware wise I think it's as lush as phones get at the moment, hold one and you'll see what I'm talking about. Weighty, metal, unbelievably sharp punch screen with the battery life of two days, easily.

    I've noticed the app doesn't retain your logged in status, ie: the Pencil icon disappears from the top right. You have to fully close the app and re-open for it to log you back in. I think this is when you leave a wifi zone and come back to it.
    Can confirm this happens to me as well

    Freaky, I will tell you what would be awesome for this new version. An option to move the toolbar and banner from the top to the bottom. I'm using an HTC one and one handed operation is currently awkward as hell as it's just too far for the thumb to reach up to hit refresh or to hit the EG logo for the menu.

    Possible?

    Hey guys,

    Those of you whose login keep giving up, I probably won't get a chance to do anything till next week.

    In the meantime, I'm interested in the comment about WiFi and leaving returning.

    The way the app works is it gets an authentication token when you start it. I expire this token after 10 minutes.

    Oh hang on, I think I know what the problem is..... I've just rubber ducked it :).

    With 3G switched off (data mode deactivated) and either wifi off or out of range I get an app crash every time I open. In these circumstances I'm expecting the app to open in offline mode?

    I see that, its the forum page I'm guessing its your default page. Forums don't work offline but they shouldnt crash the app. Will fix.

    Was going to post the same. Another small tweak that would be useful - for the app to take you to your default forum page when you hit the forum button. If you're in groups and want to see the rest of the forum, you have to scroll to the All button, which is a pain. Not a biggie of course.

    I'm having similar problems logging in. If I go to edit my username, but don't change anything, then sometimes it will then log in.

    @freakybun

    I installed a startup manager on my phone to speed up boot times (go rooting :) ) and it place the Eurogamer app as one of the startup apps.

    Why is it running at boot? :)

    No trouble logging in here. Strange.

    Started getting this too.

    If I hit the back button over and over until the app closes, it will log in when started up again.

    Is there an option to Log In via a button or a log press of something that I'm missing?

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    No biggy, but the app is stripping the less than/greater than symbols before displaying a post. See my last post in the Excel thread.

    Hey! I should have an update out later to fix the login issues. I simply can't replicate it reliably so instead ive had a good hard look at the code and think I know what's going on..

    2 other minor changes are adding Xbox one and ive fixed the forum page crash when you have no data connection.

    @mrpon what page was that?

    Just the browsing All threads category, scrolling up or down on that showed the other threads as normal. Bizarre isn't it?! I've seen something similar on the old iOS app but that was actually in a thread.

    Like I said, it's back to normal now. Just thought it might intrigue (annoy) you :)

    :D

    Just been tinkering with wifi/3G etc.. seems pretty solid fella. Groups seemed to be working great as well, previously flaky.

    Thumbs up!

    fb- log in fix is good (ancient dHD, 2.3.5). had a couple of crashes, but I think they were caused by another app.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    FB any chance of some bigger font options please? I got a Nexus 10 last week and thanks to the mad resolution the text in the app is a bit small for my poor eyesight.

    Great recent update by the way, not had trouble logging on since.

    Mat, the font sizes in your phone Settings section will increase the fonts in app.

    I completely forgot to reply to this, sorry.

    The reason for this is it needs to set alarms to schedule content updates if you have selected to do so in the preferences.

    That's all it does and does nothing more.

    Yes but then everything is bigger across the whole tablet, which isn't what I want to do.
