A UI quirk. Why are some pages able to scroll much more freely than others? For example, go to News & Reviews, and flick to scroll. It moves as you'd expect, in terms of speed and how long it takes to come to rest. Now if you click one of the reviews and try again, it's much less free, there's more friction.

I haven't seen an option to subscribe to a thread in here either... Is there one?

Love the app, still waiting on the iPAD version. Couple of concerns, though. Don't know if they're being addressed in a future update...

#1. i go to the front page of the TA website, and see two games that catch my eye on the sidebar: Suspect in Sight and Mutantstorm. I go to the iOS app on my phone to nudge me when they hit the US appstore.

I do a search, and neither comes up. Checked my spelling, repeated process. No go. Apparently, I cannot add these games to my watch list. Bummer. Funny, they're on the front page of TA.

#2. Order of events: boot up the TA app, see Strikefleet Omega on my sidebar of HOT Apps (this was weeks ago). Wow, how AWESOME!! I've never heard of this one. I click on it, and it's unavailable. Repeat several times, restart phone thinking there's a funky RAM issue or something.

Upon further research: apparently, it's only in Canada or some such (after researching the message boards). Why is this showing up on my app recommendation list? The game, of course, has since been pulled from the Appstore, but the lesson, apparently, is one that the TA guys can possibly use to tweak the INCREDIBLE app recommendation/watch list feature in future updates. Maybe the recommendations are region-specific??

Great work on the app, am also looking forward to it going universal.

One question though, is there any chance of having signatures show up in the forums?

I guess sigs were mainly omitted due to space constraints - but perhaps we could set a special smaller restricted sig for use in the app, say 1 or 2 lines of 40 chars or something, and only use the longer 4 line one on the web.

That way sigs don't take up half the screen on iPhone affecting the user experience. What do you think?

Why did the app start showing the forum web pages instead of the app-version? The old version was so much easier to navigate.

+1 for siggy & landscape mode!

for siggys, may be a simpler way of implememting would be an option to toggle it on and off

Also, the scrolling up & down in te text box is so difficult if the content is even a line more than the characters it occupies, can this be looked into please?

back to add + 1 for the battery drain too... oh Lord!

PS: has anyone noticed that blank space one gets under te save edit button?

Full-screen ads now? When did this become a good idea?

I would like for the app to send me a specific notification if one of the apps i'm watching goes free. Besides saying "This app just dropped in price!" it could say "This app just became free!" or "This app just dropped to <insert price here>".

Will the universal update include landscape mode for the iPad?

Edit: watched the TA video
