Default App gone from store

Hey everyone, I recently had to upgrade my phone. Went on to the app store and the iphone app seems to have been deleted? Tried everything to transfer it over from my old phone, with no luck. Was just wondering if anybody is having this issue? Would love to get it back, any ideas would be great!
thanks
Quinn

Still on the Android store. Although I did say it could use a reboot. I doubt that'll be the reason it got pulled from Apple though. Maybe some bot made it get removed or someone flagged it

Agreed. They should make it more mobile friendly. I wonder if there is a better way to contact them. I wouldn't mind trying to help them out making it more mobile friendly and building a better app

I've talked to Tom and Logan about issues with the app. From what I remember of the conversation, the app developer was a third party company. They are no longer in business. So there isn't a whole lot of options "management" of this forum have to the affect of app problems. The only real solution would be to hire a new third party company to build a new app, and that's not cheap.

What I took from the conversation was that it sucks, and there's not a lot Tom or any of the other mods can do about it at this time.

----------

And remember this app is a totally different realm than the forum webpage. This app is essentially a mirror of the webpage. So even if Tom can still dramatically change the website doesn't mean he change the app (function wise).

The "mirror" (the app) could be broken and the reflection (webpage) could be working flawlessly.

That's the best I can put it into words.

I'm havin the same issue. Had to download tapatalk (quickly figuring out how much this app sucks). It would be nice to have the frf app back. I never had an issue with it.


Edit:

Downloaded "forum runner". Its a lot like the app I had on my old phone. Easier to navigate and way more familiar

The app should now be available on the Apple store. Please let me know if you have issues finding the app or downloading the app. Sorry for the troubles.

Do you guys have the issue of not being able to un-follow a thread once you've posted in it? I've been trying to unfollow the "last post wins" thread....but it never actually unfollows it no matter what I do!!
