    We're currently having an issue with Sucuri that is preventing the mobile app from working properly. There is a fix in progress - please stand by!

    1.2.52 of the apps will be available for TAZ members within 48 hours so that quick posting from the index is re-activated (currently deactivated to prevent 502/405 errors that were blocking everyone).

    Also a reminder, if you have technical issues, send them directly to reviews@turnkeymobileapps.com -- they will be replied to there as TAZ is on Business Class. If you have questions about running the apps, send them to order@turnkeymobileapps.com.

    I have uninstalled the app for the time being as I did not find any significant benefits over browser yet. I hope that this app will continue to expand and adds mobile sharing of media/links/etc to the app. At that point it will become interesting,

    Due to the many alerts that TAZ has (some for moderators) and no way to reduce the related PUSH alerts this app was becoming annoying. It would be nice if it were possible to set preferences on PUSH alerts to avoid this annoyance factor. Its not useful to receive many trivial alerts.
    Like many people I clean up my phone once in a while and remove apps that do not have enough value to me. Mainly to reduce the CPU use.

    I actually like visiting TAZ on my mobile browser. The issue I found with the app was half the time the notifications were late or didn't fire at all. I've uninstalled it.

    Now the app is opening in a reasonable time.

    How about support 1Password to login?
    Mobile browser support it.

    Borderline considering this for my forums. But if the price points are accurately discussed here, I think that i'll have to pass on providing this for my forum users. Unless, I can find a compelling reason to do so other than having push notifications for mobile apps.

    The app glitched after uploading that image to my post in the app and I had to force close and restart it, continuing from the saved xenforo draft
