Toucharcade App broken by iOS 8

Hi

I've just updated to iOS 8 and I've found that I am now unable to post against a any of the articles on the site through the Toucharcade App.

If I try I get a long wait followed by:

"Error
There was an error posting your comment.

Error code: 18
Invalid argument. 'remote_auth': Invalid message sent. please see http://disqus.com/Apo/so/ for more information."

If I go to the settings and log out and then log in again I get a log wait followed by:
"Login Error
TouchArcade was unable to log you into Disqus. You can still use your Wish List and post on the forums."

Have you checked that posting on forums part still works? Fingers crossed it's not totally broke.

Another valid reason not to update and lose my jailbreak.

It seems to be okay in the forum. It's just posting against the news articles and reviews that gets the error.

As other people don't seem to have any problems I'll try setting up a brand new account to see if that works. If you see a dancj posting here then that'll be why.

same here, i'm logged in as vicsark in the forums, but am unable to post a comment in the news through TA app (ios 8, same error codes)
Maybe it's a problem on Disqus side?

I've just tried setting up a new account and it's made no difference.

It looks like I'll have to wait and see if the app gets updated to fix it.
