Re: Cruisers App

I am Responding to this using iPad with IOS7. But none of the search functions work. Am about ready to trash the app and use internet version because there's too much value in search. Bummer

Re: Cruisers App

I liked the old version of the app better. So who (with the power to change it) would care about such things?

Re: Cruisers App

I too have found the search does not work with the new version. Not lovin' it much to be honest, though I like the way it feeds the next page of posts when you scroll down. Much more intuitive.

Re: Cruisers App

Folks, we've passed along the search problem to the app developers for resolution. Thanks for your patience...

Re: Cruisers App

You guys should try the Tapatalk app, which now works with CF too.

And I just checked and the search function works well from within Tapatalk

While the new CF app is useless, this is just not worth the money. Works on CF but not anarchy...

IMHO, just use the internet page for both forums.

Re: Cruisers App

A further note for the devs if they are reading. Quoting seems to crash when the quoted message contains a hyperlink.
