Hi, when scrolling active conversations the same ones repeat over and over every 10 threads or so on the iPad, can i fix this? Thx.

I have been getting this too.... At first I thought bloody hell there are loads of duplicate threads... Then I realised its a glitch

And I haven't broken mumsnet...

Because Apple is overpriced shit? The Android app doesn't do that.

Hullo all - are you on the app or the mobile site?

Same problem here, on the app on an iPhone 5

Hello KateS, I'm on the app.

I think I have worked this one out. I assume you are talking about the iphone app? I think what it does is show you each thread which has recently been replied to, in the order it was posted. So where a topic has been popular, and replied to 10 times in the last minute, it will show each reply as an active conversation (ie there is nothing in the code saying "ok, if this becomes the most recent active conversation, I need to delete conversation 3 from the most active list as that is the same conversation".

Sorry that is probably as clear as mud, but it's hard to explain.
