Default another app question/problem

Ok fellows, I have been using the Internet Brands app for quite awhile now without any hiccups. A few days ago I started experiencing the following:


I log into the app, goto "S Type" or any other site page, I can see all the threads without problems. On a few of the threads I click to read no problem, I click on others and receive the message "Error the remote server sent an unknown response. This could be a result of the forum software plugin being outdated or having a conflict".


The above message only happens to this forum. Other forums I have visit have no problems and operate as usual.


I have uninstalled app and reinstalled a number of times with no luck. I have read the comments at the app store where this has been happening to others as well without any resolution. I cannot believe its my Android only choosing this forum to reek havoc on.


Any ideas would be appreciated.


Thank you

Rick,

The fault is IB's App and not your install/configuration. They are working on it.

Unfortunately, the Parse Errors are still happening network wide and the cause of the issue is more complicated than we expected. The good news is that the issue is leading us to accelerate the launch our new mobile app, which we're now calling Garage Talk. The new app offers the same functionality as our current one, but with a cleaned up, snappier interface. We've been developing it for the past year or so and were originally planning to launch it at the start of summer. However, now that these Parse Errors are happening, we decided to roll it out to select sites as soon as possible, including JaguarForums.

I'll keep you posted on GarageTalk's launch once we work out the specific date. In the meantime, please bare with us

Thanks!

I'm having the same issue. Very frustrating. It seems to happen to the same threads every time... So please do let us all know when the new app is available and I'll certainly be making the switch!

The problem is related to the number of posts, attachments & pictures in the thread you are trying to view. A thread with only 1 or 2 posts is ok, but when it gets "too big" the app crashes. The only way around it in the meantime is to view the forum with the "mobile version" on your phone's browser.

Having the same issue here. Real shame.

Does anyone know any other apps that support Jaguar forums other than IB Automotive?

The older application is no longer supported as we have finally finished developing the new replacement application.

The Android version was approved recently and can be found here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.internetbrands.android.autocomm&hl= en

Apple is dragging their feet but we hope they will approve our new, Garage Talk, app in the next week. We have held out announcing anything until both are live.

Sorry for the delay. We did not expect issues with the older app this close to releasing the replacement.

Default another app question/problem

First and second attempt to download/install seemed as if only half the app installed. I saw directories and topics, clicked on a random thread, the authors name would appear without any text. I checked in other directories and got the same. I uninstalled both times.

Third download/install seems to have cleared everything up on my Android Mini. So far so good with app.

I will navigate around and will report back.

Hi

Is this meant to be working/production software or part of a trial? The version on Google Play is still labelled Beta.

Guess it's still early days for the new app.

Just loaded it on my iPhone 6, it's crashed three times in about 10 minutes.

My first intial feedback is the "current threads" of the old app is missing.

You can look at "new posts" but it's the exact same problem as using this function on the website, if you read a post/thread it disappears from the list of results in "new posts"

I prefer to see all posts, including ones i've read. This is possible via the website from "Quick Links --> Todays Posts" and via the old app under the "current threads" tab. But is missing from the new app.

Actually i'd like to take this opportunity to once again ask for read posts/threads to be returned to the "new posts" results, with the unread threads in bold, the read threads non-bolded, exactly how it works on every other vbulletin forum, apart from the IB ones...

Thanks.

I haven't experienced any of the problems above. So far so good on my Android Mini.

When a page loads it would be nice to have more than 10 threads load at a time IMO. I could do without the ads.

Just installed Garage Talk on my LG G3 and all appears to be OK!
Many thanks for it as I have been unable to read threads on the old app for a months or more now..

The Garage Talk app. has taken q dump. All was well for a while, now it is acting up. I can see the posters names but there is no text.

This has been happening for a few days now.

Just FYI

Mine's been working great (iPhone). Glad to have access again.

My only "complaint" is no way to post "thanks" (from what I've found).
