Arn, thank you for the feedback and explanations.

A useful feature would be a separate section in the watchlist for individual forum discussion threads. As it is now I either have to search or hunt through the forums for threads that I am watching or go back to my browser bookmarks. It could basically be an in-app bookmarking feature, that, like the forum section, indicates which of your watched threads have new comments.

Thanks!

Fantastic app. With video and images of the games, discussions, and everything else - you have created a game exploration and buying service many times better than the AppStore!

Would be nice with a long-pull beyond the news/review to scroll to the next news/review item, like that used by Reeder.

Shouln't the icon sidebar "Hot New Games" be renamed to "Game Buzz"?

After all, any game could in theory suddenly cause a lot of forum activity, not only new games. Unless you filter by age?

Are replies to articles using your TA account on the app not supposed to work?

I agree with everyone else. This app is great and will only get better. My thought on the top left button is that I don't necessarily want to go back to the home screen when I triple tap on it. I only want to go one level back - such as from page 2 on this thread up to the "iOS apps" subforum

I must be in the minority here, but I still prefer to use Safari to view the site and forums. As nice as the app is, I just don't have any problems using Safari. I guess over the years I've become accustomed to my iPhone's touch screen and can make very precise taps on small text.

There is a newness bias to the ranking.
