I didn't like the app on my Droid so I just ditched it. Quick and painless.

I loaded the DC app on SO's iPad then decided I didn't like it so I deleted it. I much prefer using Safari for DC.

I use the Android app and it works quite well, just have to remember to refresh the page, it doesn't always do it on its own when you launch the app. It does most of what I need it to do.

I haven't loaded it on my tablet, it's big enough that the regular website is easy to use.

I think part of the reason I love the DC iPad app so much is that it's how I first discovered DC. I'd looked up something on DC in Safari and it said there's an app for that, so I downloaded it. I was not used to navigating the regular website, and when I first perused the site, it came as quite a shock, nothing like my sweet little DC app!

I have been using the the DC mobile Ap on my iPhone for a long time now. It's very user friendly. I rarely use the regular website, except to access some of the features that aren't as easily accessible on the mobile ap, or if I want to use a full size keyboard on the PC or laptop. I particularly like the "current threads" selection, I can keep up with everything new that way.

The app has no ads. It also lacks a few of the features of the regular site, but then I just bring up the regular site if I need to. I have not yet figured out how to do multi quotes on either

Banner ads actually DO monitor your browsing habits!

I say go for it, Pac, get the app!

And as an aside, has anyone noticed how the banner ads so closely follow our patterns? Almost in a Big Brother kind of way
A couple weeks ago I was browsing Amazon daily for pots, talking about pots, and every banner ad until today has been for one pot or another. Circulon mostly, which is what I ended up getting...
And now they are about Sous Vide cooking appliances I haven't even looked into those, only replying to the thread.

Do you still see those banner ads with mobile browsing if you install the app, or does it block them to neaten up the page?

Thanks for any help or insight.

BTW Dawg, I don't know how to use the multi-quote on the apps, but can use it on my iPad when going to the regular site. That is a plus I guess. Another BTW, I love my new iPad! It is amazing how much easier it is to see the bigger screen. I was doing so much on that little iPhone.

Show-off! Sure, just multi quote away, Chopper!

I agree, the iPad is SO much easier to use than the iPhone, glad you love it too. Also, I find I can type better on my iPad than on the PC or the work laptop. My iPhone, not so much either, that tiny little keyboard...
