New CF Mobile App Solutions

Started this Thread so we can help each other learn the tricks

1 Getting Rid of automatic phone signature

Drag left side menu bar and a "settings " icon pops up

Open and scroll down to Signature.
Open and select None

2 Low light use
Open settings as above and select "Dark Mode"... works better if you increase font size. Girlfriend appreciates this in bed

She appreciates you increasing your font size? Bet she does.

Re: New Cf Mobile App Solutions

Is the bloody app better than using the website on ipad? Or just useful if you have a phone?

Not better than iPad or web. Just better than the previous phone app.

Yes. Much. It's easier to read in the app, easier to navigate and just seems 'cleaner than using the website, on which I always seem to hit the wrong button cos I'm to lazy to make it bigger just to hit one button. And that's on the iPad. On my phone, the browser is just waaaay too small.

That said, I wish there were a thanks button on it, and a report post button... they are the two tools I seem to use most, and I think it's important that our members can too.

Re: New CF Mobile App Solutions

Hey it works!!!! Okay one re-convert to the iPhone app!

The previously cited flaws appear to be fixed.

Still miss the pithy signature lines (
