Just updated my iPad with ios6. Losing YouTube I can cope with but when I try to use the mumsnet iPhone app, it lets me read messages but I have lost the facility to add comments or flip messages or see titles when I open the thread! Any ideas why this is happening I've reset my settings to disable restrictions so can't understand why!

Hi Alan
I don't know why this is (don't have an iPad, let alone iOS envy)
but will see what we can find out for you.

I am having major problems on my iPhone too, it keeps freezing on one post and will only let me see the title of that post even on other threads and won't let me post I have to keep deleting and reinstalling the app for every thread I want to read sad

I've had no problems with the MN app on my iPhone since downloading ios6.
At least, if this posts I haven't. grin
I always find just opening MN in safari better than the app on the iPad, though.

Mines letting me post now but have the same title problem as pinkchampagne

Tech are going to try to recreate this one tomorrow on an iPad - please bear with us (and sorry!)

Had the same issue with my iPhone after downloading iOS6. I solved it by deleting MN then downloading it again. My MN icon now has a nice blue 'new' banner in the corner. confused

And MN working fine again since new download.

Yes I had the frozen post issue on the phone app too. And iPad app just never worked so I open it from the browser.

I have an iPad, and the mumsnet app has had some rubbish reviews. So I haven't downloaded it yet, or until it gets sorted.

I've downloaded twice now... And just deleted again.

App freezes showing the title of the last thread I read but I can go in/out of other threads-just not see the title or flip/post etc

Will be using the mobile site but neeeed the app back <<impatient>>

Yes, I get the title thing and can't flip/post/watch on iPhone now after iOS 6 download. Scared to put it on iPad now smile

This happened on my phone last night so I deleted and reinstalled the app and it seems to be working ok. Not had any problems with iPad yet <wood touching emoticon>

Hello. Just to let you know, we couldn't replicate the problems some of you were reporting, so we can't be much more helpful, we're afraid.

We're glad it's now downloading OK for some of you.

There will be a new app just for the iPad soon. Promise.

Newton explained the issue far better than I can. Touch wood it's been ok for today though.

Problems still happening here!
Deleted and downloaded 4 times.
Thread title still freezes and can't add message.
Had to come straight here and not click on anything else to post.
It's gonna be a long day. grin

Yep, I've deleted and downloaded the app a few times now and after a few threads, starts freezing so can see the title of my last thread and add or flip message facility. Hey ho.. Hope the new app comes along sooner rather than later...
