    I tend to use and think the app looks best in portrait.
    I almost forced portrait but know that some people have slidey keyboards.

    I'm finding it hit or miss when clicking links within someones forum post or spoilered text. No visual feedback and often nothing happens. Bit of an odd one that, might be my dodgy thumbs.

    We might be able to cross your palm with a proper content API to save you scraping our markup...

    Its the archive i'm parsing. Click on the reviews link on the menu on the main site,  sadly its missing :( or maybe that's a good thing!
    Ah yeah see what you're saying, bummer. Link test <a href="http://www.eurogamer.net/archive.php?type=review">here</a>

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Linky is just the full HTML, linky no Worky.

    When i click new post the text entry cursor appears on the second line of the textbox, not the first.
    There's a disparity between the way android paragraph spans work that I need to understand. Like when you quote post someone,  there's one line break but in the editor there are two. Hopefully ill nail it down someday :)

    Its my first app so I'll iron out the little things eventually

    Please keep the most minute of detail coming,  its those silly little things that annoy the shit out of me.

    You are already turning out to be a model beta tester!

    Forum links should be with square brackets, perhaps I should support both and put in a link button?

    Cheeky feature request, would be nice if tapping the EG header bar took you back to the main news page.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Be great if clicking on a forum thread took you to the last post rather than the top of the last page. I'm gonna shut up soon.

    Nice app, better than the official one, posting from my Android now.
    Got to say that jonny's app wasnt official as such and I really admire what he put together back in the day before stack overflow had an answer to pretty much every android development conundrum.

    Thank for the compliment, I just need you to find me some bugs!

    Feature request - hide a search page in the settings that would allow us to search the main site or the forum. I know this one is a biggie bit would be something special indeed.

    Aha! Videos...

    So I attempt to guess the link to the mobile video based on its Id. Not every video seems to have a corresponding video file available on the mobile site. Plus the quality is pretty awful but I hope that I can work this out in future.

    Will it be possible to also see group threads please sir.
    Group and interesting threads are on my radar, I'm hoping to get access to their API before I work it in.

    I really want to do search at some point. Searching for reviews or grouping by game would be amazing.

    Sweet - proper API might mean you'll be able to do a group view too :D

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I thought it was official? Well kudos to that/those person/s.
    Maybe that's me speaking out of turn. Perhaps it was, I think that any app developed by readers in their own time can't be considered official. We just do it out of love.
