    I can't get in again. Put in my User login and password, it swirls and keeps saying that the account timed out and tells me to do it again. Did a hard restart, and removed and reinstalled the app. I can get in online with my FB account, as well as with a less desirable iPad FB app. I contacted their help. What gives?

    Tried it again, after typing in the weird wavy words and answering a security question, logging in several more times, and doing another restart, I'm in again. Whew!

    Friendly is long overdue an update to their app

    I have given up on Friendly. I just use Safari and go to the site.

    Yeah, I may do that too. Friendly is just so convenient. Sigh.

    It's only been four months, and that does seem a long time. We really are spoiled by frequent free updates in the app world, aren't we? :D

    What is up with the wavy words? Some are just impossible to read. I have, despite my age, perfect reading vision without glasses, but there is no way anyone could read them. Understand they are a security feature, but geez!

    Yep, annoying and often difficult to read. However there is usually a button or link that offers to get you another captcha, which might be easier to read.

    (notice how I snuck in the proper term for the wavy words) :D

    Aha! So that's what it's called! Still annoys me. But now I can call it by name....and switch it out.

    Thanks, Twerp!

    You should all switch to the Mypad app instead. I love it and never use Friendly anymore.

    I'm tired of trying a new Facebook app every other month. Until Friendly stops doing what I want, or the official app comes out, I'll just keep on booking as I am.

    I still miss Social.

    Gotcha. I am going to get rid of Friendcast, it sort of creeps me out.

    I second that. Although mine says I have an unread message and I constantly have a red ballon on the left hand side even though I don't have an unread message.
