Hi MNHQ
Is there a problem with the mobile app at the moment that you're aware of? My active conversations is playing up. It shows the same few threads by posters at the top instead of the usual MN threads that are there. I have deleted and reloaded the app but its just the same. Thank you!!

bangersmashandbeans Fri 02-Nov-12 18:44:05

Same thing happening to me too.

melliebobs Fri 02-Nov-12 18:45:10

Same here

And here

Not the app but the mobile site keep throwing me off. Just flicks off internet. Most annoying and interruptiony.
Still have to keep logging back in too.

peanutbear Fri 02-Nov-12 18:58:39

Yes and my app keeps showing me active threads from days ago. And there is a opening sentence stuck to the top of my screen

I've reinstalled to no avail lol

Mine is showing active convo's from a few days ago too. It also had a box that came up saying it was 'temporaly unavailable' *shudder.

ipotty Fri 02-Nov-12 19:39:18

Yes! The active threads at the top of mine are from ages ago too! I'm glad it's not just me. I thought my phone was starting to play up smile

Fucking pack it in. The kids are on the laptop and facebook is quiet. Don't tell me I need to go on the daily hate mail site? <gets razor>

newtonupontheheath Fri 02-Nov-12 21:22:40

Same here! And I've only just re-downloaded the app after last time confused

RubyrooUK Fri 02-Nov-12 21:43:23

Yes, me too, this has happened for the last few weeks. Tried turning phone off; redowloading; logging in and out.....it corrupts again very quickly.

I have the thread title stuck at the top of my screen and then I can't post or flip threads. Driving me totally mad.

MNHQ? Any update on what's gone wrong?

LittleFriendSusan Fri 02-Nov-12 22:02:29

Same here with the active threads and randomly logging out...

Also am having problems going between pages of a thread: app doesn't always seem to recognise the end of a thread? As in I click on the 'next' button, it says 'loading discussions' but doesn't load anything. If I flip the thread I have already seen the last post, so there was nothing to load, if that makes any sense!

Very frustrating!!

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 02-Nov-12 22:29:14

Sorry this does sound annoying - are these not "stickies" thread?

RubyrooUK Fri 02-Nov-12 22:54:58

What is stickies thread Olivia?

The thread title that gets stuck is just whatever thread I was looking at, stuck on the same amount of messages, sometimes for days. I can't shift it or post while it it up there.

JennyPiccolo Fri 02-Nov-12 22:56:57

I have this too. They're not stickies, no.

Not stickies, no.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 02-Nov-12 23:27:53

oh.
<Perplexed>
Will work on.

Susieloo Fri 02-Nov-12 23:38:37

Mines the same, active conversations are old and no mn stuff and same re thread title, only way it goes away is if I turn the phone off, did the web chat happen with sandi toksvig?? Was that today?smile

It's doing my fucking head in now. Active is Not. Working.

lisaro Fri 02-Nov-12 23:53:51

Rep, me too, and halfway through writing a post it occasionally freezes and the cancel/send bar at the top disappears.

FannyFifer Fri 02-Nov-12 23:58:40

Same here, the one I keep seeing at top is about trousers with a side zip.

Also the first thread I look at, the title stays at the top no matter what other thread i look at.

Sort it. Bitches.

I have the 'side bitch zip' too. That is boring enough on a normal day. Sort it aaaaaahhht mn!

ipotty Sat 03-Nov-12 00:30:25

The top of my active threads is trousers with a side zip too!!! Maybe if I buy a pair it'll changesmile

Cheddars Sat 03-Nov-12 01:15:30

What's worse is that the op never came back to tell us whether she got her side zip trousers in the end. confused

FannyFifer Sat 03-Nov-12 09:13:25

Arf at you posting on the trousers thread to find out.
£300 on a pair of black trousers?

lisaro Sat 03-Nov-12 11:11:28

Hmmmm.... Gonna jump on the conspiracy bandwagon here-Mumsnetting are you secretly run by Apple and making us all think our phones are broken so we'll buy new ones? If I post this on David Ickes site it'll be 'true and a fact' in minutes. On the other hand, glad it's come out, and it's not my phone.

ipotty Sat 03-Nov-12 11:41:40

sadthought it might be fixed this morning but still reading about side zip trousers! Think she must have meant £30!

JennyPiccolo Sat 03-Nov-12 12:07:15

Side bitch zip here too.

EvilTwins Sat 03-Nov-12 12:09:38

Same here. Side zip trousers? £300? The woman is loopy.

Same here. Have iPhone 5 if that's relevant.

RubyrooUK Sat 03-Nov-12 12:52:32

I don't have an iPhone 5 - I do have a couple of screenshots of how it has gone wrong if MNHQ want me to email them over.

lisaro Sat 03-Nov-12 12:55:00

iPhone 3GS (poor emoticon). But I'm sure it's only started since I installed IOS6.

ScrambledSmegs Sat 03-Nov-12 15:02:18

I was just about to start a thread about this. I've got exactly the same problem.

I haven't installed iOS6 either. Still on iOS5 due to shiteness of Apple Maps.

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Nov-12 15:48:20

Same problem with the blackberry app too!

BitBewildered Sat 03-Nov-12 15:53:07

I've had the side zip trousers for days too, and a few other, not MNHQ type threads, just random ones which never change. hmm

FiercePanda Sun 04-Nov-12 10:08:27

Yep, same here, side zip trousers, "this probably isn't a MNers list" and "AIBU to have blocked this person" constantly at the top of the Active threads.

Definitely not stickies.

It's like the Active board has stopped updating and is stuck on threads from days ago.

Does anyone else lose their + button (the one to add a new message or flip the thread) every so often? I find that if I've been on the app for a wee while looking at different threads, the MN app has a hissy fit and the button disappears. Only way to get it back is to restart my phone. confused

ipotty Sun 04-Nov-12 11:44:14

Ho hum - a new day and still the same trousers! How are you getting on MNHQ?

Bizkit Sun 04-Nov-12 11:58:12

Same problem here, thought it was a bit strange and these same threads couldn't possibly still be the most active.
Does anyone else have problems with the search function on the app, I don't think it has ever worked on mine

eastendfareast Sun 04-Nov-12 12:14:33

Me too and getting v irritated now. Sort it please mnhq!

Same here. Even deleted and re-installed the app. Thete are threads last posted on 3rd Nov listed in Active.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 04-Nov-12 12:43:20

ipotty

Ho hum - a new day and still the same trousers! How are you getting on MNHQ?

LOL at the same trousers. I am sorry I don't mean to laugh. Will try again.

Same problem here, and same threads too.

ipotty Sun 04-Nov-12 13:22:27

Yes you may very well laugh, Olivia! But the suspense is driving me crazy! Did she buy the trousers? Did she really mean that she was going to pay £300 (!) for them? Why is a side zip so important? These are questions that need answering grin

Elkieb Sun 04-Nov-12 13:26:36

Me too, but I just though the trouser issue was vitally importantblush! Also getting a thread title stuck and all the other problems.

RubyrooUK Sun 04-Nov-12 14:38:02

Oh I hadn't even realised that the trousers and a couple of other threads were part of the problem. They ARE always at the top of active threads for me too.

The most annoying bit for me is when a thread title gets stuck at the top of a page and you can't post or flip threads. If you left message 567 on a thread, it's a long scrolling process to find your comment (and not be able to respond again). And that is if you don't get the "loading discussions" sign instead of page turning while you are forwarding through the posts.

Tech (MNHQ) Sun 04-Nov-12 15:23:22

Hi, this should be OK now. The zipper trousers are gone.... sorry for the trubbs.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 04-Nov-12 16:11:14

Poor trousers grin

RubyrooUK Sun 04-Nov-12 16:24:10

They ARE gone...pesky trousers. Hopefully that's the last we'll see of them....till the next time someone has a hot trouser-related issue....

ipotty Sun 04-Nov-12 16:43:21

Hooray!! Thank you tech! Although I am feeling a little nostalgic now... Side zip anyone?

BitBewildered Sun 04-Nov-12 18:12:41

Thanks Tech!

RubyrooUK Mon 05-Nov-12 13:23:15

Um, now my mobile app won't show anything at the top of the page (+ sign to add new post, for example) or flip results. I can't reply to posts on the mobile app as a result, although I can scroll forwards through the posts ok.

Is this a temporary fix thing or something else gone wrong?

Thanks MNHQ!

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 05-Nov-12 18:04:41

Hi Ruby, that sounds like something's gone weird on your phone. If I were you I'd try killing the app completely (hold down the running app icon so it wobbles then click the x) and start it up again.

about.com on killing running apps

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 05-Nov-12 18:05:30

Oh yes it's a minus sign / dash not an x (should have read own link first)

RubyrooUK Mon 05-Nov-12 19:47:12

Thanks Tech - that has indeed sorted the issue. Will attempt not to have anything else to add to this thread....grin

SufferingLampreys Tue 06-Nov-12 14:17:20

Apps completely died on me now
Had all the problems mentioned on here and now it won't even let me sign in

More app issues!

It keeps retaining the topic area and subject from an area I was previously browsing.

It prevents me from reading a full subject title and from posting.

Can you so anything? Pretty please?

Tech (MNHQ) Fri 16-Nov-12 17:53:30

Hi Henrietta, I think if you kill it (instructions above) then restart it that should right itself.
