    Default VCA Mobile Application

    Just downloaded the mobile app. for the forum.

    Runner, do I have to log in every time I open it? Seems like this process is going backwards and using this forum is getting more difficult than it was a month ago.

    I had the 'old layout' saved as a bookmark. You clicked on it and it opened with you logged in and there were all the new posts for your review at the top of the screen. Simple and easy. So simple I was doing most of my posting from my phone. Now I have to be at a pc to really utilize the entire site easily.

    I forgot to mention that when I receive an email letting me know there is a thread response, pressing the link says 'error loading page'. It's been doing this for a couple of days. Works on pc but not on Evo phone.

    I'd really like to get that issue fixed.

    I've been logged in all day. I recall a "remember me" option, though I can't be sure.

    Make sure to hit the menu button on your phone, there's a lot of stuff there.

    I'll look into the emails.

    No remember me with this phone unless its a bookmark. Got the same error loading message when trying to respond to this thread using the link in the email.

    I downloaded the Android app late Tuesday and it has been working flawlessly. I was a bit puzzled about how to change the view until I hit the menu button on the phone itself (Droid X2). Then it popped up several options including the forum views. I haven't had time to really dive into it much more than that, but I really like the icons for read/unread posts, the way the page numbers on longer threads show at the top, etc. No logout issues either, and I have open/closed it several times. Great stuff!

    Still not remembering me.

    Also still getting 'error loading page' when I try to access a thread from an email update. Any progress on either?

    No, you have to enter your user name and password every time. It's easier just using the site page as a bookmark in my browser. That remembers my info at least.

    I could do that but I was thinking it would affect my battery life staying logged in all day.

    Not to get off subject but the battery life is beyond pathetic on the Android. I'm afraid to install anything else on it.

    It was my phone itself which remembered me, not the app.

    And yes, I know about the email notifications. Give me a chance to work on it?...

    Mine will not stay logged on with the Viper App, If is go to the VCA site with the standard Browser it ask about remembering the password and it does, but the App doesn't,
    Is there something I need to do to get the Viper App to remember the app?

    Whenever I open the app it shows "Welcome, y2k5srt" at the very top with a "Logout" button to the right of it. It must show the most recent threads as a default, but they seem to be slightly behind the view when I open the forums themselves (about an hour behind). When I checked my running programs (go to settings on your phone), the VCA app was not running before I opened it so it must be retaining credentials some other way.

    As for the iPhone app, the club had to work from one of those Mac things to get it developed and didn't have one handy. PC guys - go figure.

    The guys with crappy battery life might want to down load the task manager app (to kill apps that run all the time), If you havent done it already.

    I figured the logout problem out.

    If I back out, it logs me off, it I log on then used the Task Manager to close the App it keeps me logged on.
