    Other than no ads, I think I like the browser view better...comments?

    (just downloaded it, so haven't used it much yet)

    When I use the forum app, I kinda miss the look of the browser version. So, I switch back and forth. At work I'll use the browser on the PC I use. At home I'll use the app on the iPad

    The browser seems more friendly. For example, you have a preview of the latest post.

    I find it annoying, though, to be pestered (in the browser) to use the app!

    Yep prefer the browser every time as it allows you to remain on the same page when posting. The app throws you to a new page which is annoying if you are replying.

    I use the app - seems to me that I can get in, read what I want and get out a lot faster using the app...

    Cor blimey, apple and pears, innit.......I just wish that they would fix that bug where sometimes you are scrolling through the latest posts, you click on one to have a read and make a blasé comment then when you go back it disappears to a different time and post.......I get in a right two and eight!

    I use both... Not sure what I like better, but I think I use the app more because it seems faster to me.. Plus I leave myself signed in, but with the browser I always log myself out. Not sure why though. But I use the browser when I'm "tired" of the app look lol
