Start app in portrait mode, if you start in landscape mode most buttons will not work, at least that is my experience.

I have the same problem on the Trawler Forum as well.

This is the current fix for the iPad issues.

Unfortunately we outsource and buy the apps from Forum Runner. They were acquired by a big company in 2012 and service has gone down hill. They say they are working on a fix but 6 months is way too long to fix things. We are evaluating getting apps from another provide or building them from scratch on our own so we can add other features.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the patience!

Instead of buying these apps and all the troubles that come with them, why not just give in and install the Tapatalk plug-in. There are problems with Tapatalk too, but they are minor compared to this disaster.

Disaster seems a bit excessive, just means you have to start the app in portrait mode.

That apparantly works for some, but not for others. You can't ask people to perform tricks to use a broken app and act like it's normal. Problems must be solved quick, without pointing fingers to other parties or lame excuses that do not concern the users, who should be viewed as customers imho.

Y'know when I think of customers, I think of someone who has paid for something. So Jedi my question for you is do you feel that you have not gotten your money's worth from this FREE app? Maybe you should ask for a refund. While it could be better, how hard is it to rotate an iPad every now and again? Once you know what the issue is its pretty easy to avoid. It's almost automatic for me now. I will be happy when it is fixed, but it's not that big of a deal. I will now rotate 90 degrees so that the send button works......

Delete and reinstall. This will work for a while, but at some point you'll have to do it again.

That's more bother than turning it! It's funny, I am so used to it now.

I consider this app a privilege more so than something I am entitled to. But that's just me...
