    In case you haven't heard yet, we finally have our very own Tortoise Forum apps in the iTunes and Android app stores! This is very exciting news as I know a growing number of you are a part of our community via your mobile devices.
    These apps will allow you to access the entire forum from your mobile device. You will be able to attach and view photos, participate in polls, start new topics - and new users will even be able to register via the app! Oh - and did I mention both apps are completely FREE!?

    Awesome! :D

    I searched for an app the other day and was gutted. Accessing the site from safari on my iphone is so hard. An app will make it so much easier.
    Currently downloading :D

    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but when i go into the current section of the ap.
    Whatever thread I click on there always comes up "thread does not exist" so i go back out and then click on it again and it loads fine.

    I'm using the iPhone 3GS with the app.

    downloaded. It looks user friendly. I just need time to play on it. How exciting. I guess I know what I'll be doing during my kids soccer practices.[hr]
    I love it, but everything I click on says "thread doesn't exist." I'm sure all the bugs will get worked out. I just keep refreshing page.

    Can someone tell me the EXACT name to find it in the Android Market? I've been searching, but it doesn't pop up.

    UPDATE: Ignore my request. I'm a bonehead. It would help if I was searching under FREE apps. Found it, and like it so far.

    Help , I am new to this forum, I have just registered, it said to go to my emails to activate my account, so I clicked on the link but it didn't do anything and said my account was already active. It also says I have 1 new private message but when I'd try to click on it it says I don't have permission to view it. Apologies if I am posting this on the wrong thing, but I am completly new and a bit stuck :( xx

    Hi ffion13:

    When it tells you to go to your emails to activate your account, it means that you have been sent an email and in order to activate your account you have to click on the link in the email. Your account is activated. As for the private message, I'm sorry, I can't help you with that. Do you have the box checked "receive PM's from members" on your user CP page?

    The reason you didn't see your posts appearing on the forum is because new members have their posts moderated for the first few posts. A moderator has to approve it before it shows up.

    I had this problem.

    Activate your account and then leave it a while. Come back and you should be able to access your PM's.
    I think it just needs a few moments to process your activation etc. :)
