    Ok, so I used to use the app all the time, but I don't know if it is iOS 5, or whatever but the app just crashed all the time. No matter what I am doing, and no matter how much RAM I have.

    Anyone else?
    Its made me have to use safari because it is just so annoying to be in the middle of a post or something and it crashes.

    (and I did search and look in this section but all I can find is stuff about the parse error)

    Have you tried deleting the app and reinstalling it?

    I've had no problem (I'm at iOS 5.0.1). Have you tried the Forum Ruuner App, it has a free version and uses the same software. It may give some clues if that crashes as well (or even if it doesn't!).

    iPad 1 guys, in case you didn't see my sig. :)

    I can watch the ram just go down and down and down until it just crashes...... :(

    I will look at the forum runner app.

    It also happens on the Tapatalk app, Graywolf. I think it's just a price of having the iPad1, though, there could be a memory leak. Now that I think on it, if I access the forum via Safari, it'll crash sometimes also. So, it's probably not a memory leak (too many different apps crash). Probably just cause we have 1/2 the RAM as the newer devices.

    The good news is that, if you are typing something in the forum while on Safari, the forum software does an Auto-Save every now and then (which it just did while I was typing this on my PC).

    Trust me - I really appreciate that Auto-Save! So, on a side note, thanks to the forum developers for adding that...!!!

    Sorry, graywolf, I've got no solution for you - but a lot of sympathy, cause I am there too.

    The weird thing is though, that safari has never crashed on me. Ever.
    It's just the app. And I am very obsessive about my RAM, I only have a few tweaks and a theme going and there is no difference in my ram in other apps.
