    I d/l the iPad Forum application a few days ago but now I see an ! Exclamation mark across the Icon on my iPad 4G.
    I assume it's an error indicator, but why and how will I get rid of it? Searched the Help Forum but didn't find anything.

    I've got it too, I think it's supposed to be that way.

    Sent from my iPhone 4S or iPad 3rd gen, whichever I happened to have in my hands at the time, using iPF.net

    Well, there is an exclamation mark within the white conversation bubble of the icon. Is that what you see? Have you tried the app to see if runs properly?

    I know-I was wondering if the OP had run the app to see if it worked. :)

    Yeah, I ran the application, but when I see an "!" it means there is something to "exclaim"...
    I asked my psychiatrist who feels the ! is superfluous and may show the designer's desire to stand out which wasn't necessary. The ikon just confuses people like me.
    Seriously, I accept the icon as is. Thanks for enlightening a poor soul...:p
