I've started using the new app and the active threads seems boxed,it has black all around the sides which makes it really small and hard to read,clicking on a thread it's the same.
Threads I'm on or watching comes up s normal.
Anyone else having this problem?
I'm in iPhone6.

Here's a pic of a thread for tech.

I'm OK on that on the iPad but there are a couple of other niggles.

Might it be worth MNHQ running an 'issues' thread rather than waiting for this survey they mentioned to come our way in a few days?

I agree Cozie,I'm still debating deleting at the mo & going back to the normal App.
I've not tried iPad yet,I'll have a look in a bit & see if it's any better.

Just testing whether my requested name change worked...

RueDeWakening Fri 04-Mar-16 00:03:57

Oh hang on. It did, but only for the second post confused

So, Tech, every time I try and change my name on the app it generates an error message. When I post, it's under the previous name. But if I post again, it seems to have registered the change.

Will see if I can grab a screenshot of the error. brb...

Here it is. Question is, which name am I posting under grin

cozietoesie Fri 04-Mar-16 07:44:46

Can you check the 'posting box' (top line) and see whether the name there ties in with the name you think it should be ?

andadietcoke Fri 04-Mar-16 07:47:59

I don't have the boxing on a 6+

RueMatisme Fri 04-Mar-16 08:21:00

Cozie it doesn't, or at least not immediately.

Groovee Fri 04-Mar-16 08:33:14

Ok here. The only thing which has changed for me is the OP's name in green.

andadietcoke Fri 04-Mar-16 09:31:12

groovee I knew it was a different colour, but can't remember what it was before!!

MissBeaHaving Fri 04-Mar-16 09:39:46

Seems like we've all got different issues with it.confused

cozietoesie Fri 04-Mar-16 13:03:04

Looks like it. I have nearly all the post name banners in purple now whereas before they were uncoloured if I recall. (I'm still in red/claret colour and any OP posts are in a bright turquoise.) Nice try guys but it's not working for me - visually very intrusive. wink

Oh - and bookmarks are still flaky as all get out. That's more important to cure than name-changing I

cozietoesie Fri 04-Mar-16 13:04:03

OK - maybe a dull turquoise. grin

Groovee Fri 04-Mar-16 15:14:17

This is what my thread looks like, iPhone 5c and my iPad is the same

DisraeliGears Fri 04-Mar-16 15:16:13

Mine is the same as Groovee posted above. I'm on an iPhone 6. Didn't have any issues with NC either and all that's changed is the OP's name colour. I was hoping for an advanced search function!

stealthkick Fri 04-Mar-16 15:17:51

Issue with name change was the same but it's worked.

No other issues so far

gant Fri 04-Mar-16 15:45:12

Testing new name..

gant Fri 04-Mar-16 15:45:40

Mine changed easily and worked straight away

Luckster Fri 04-Mar-16 15:50:51

I get the error message when changing names but it clearly has registered a name change.

LovingSummer Fri 04-Mar-16 16:51:03

Name change worked fine, told me it was a success and its changed fine.

I can't see any obvious changes apart from the fact that everything loads a little slower than normal.

I've got an old iPhone 4s and don't have the problem with black around the edge of the screen. I've got he lasted iOS, so I wonder if it has to do with larger screens rather than iPhone per se.

Other than the ability to name change, is there any other difference?

Groovee Fri 04-Mar-16 18:14:24

First survey is through ladies.

cozietoesie Fri 04-Mar-16 18:49:44

I have to test name-changing before I can answer it.

I'm racked by guilt. smile
