Smart Phone Signature

I notice that posts I make using my iPhone on the DC app carry a signature, "Sent from my iPhone using Discuss Cooking". I can't find a way to turn that off.

I know I can go to "Settings" "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" and turn off and clear all signatures. That doesn't make a difference. The signature still appears.

How do I stop it?

Andy, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, so I'm not sure if it will work the same on all phones. I kinda remember you having an iPhone...

1) Open the DC app.
2) In the upper-left of the screen is the symbol that looks like an equal sign with three horizontal lines instead of two. Click on it.
3) In the upper-right of the screen is the "gear wheel". Click on it.
4) Scroll down to "SIGNATURE". When you click on "Discuss Cooking Signature" you should get a box giving you options. Options are good.

Good luck!

I can tell you how it works on an Android phone. Hopefully it will be similar on the iPhone.

Open the main menu in the DC app and look for the Settings icon - it looks like a gear. Tap that and scroll down till you see the Signature item. Then you can change it or choose not to show one.

Thanks, CG. That did the trick. I didn't look for the settings on the App. Still getting used to the smart phone.

No problem, Andy. I was happy to share my learning experience. I had been using the old, pre-tap-a-talk app on my phone until the DC app got updated across the board when I added my tablet. Took me a few 5-minute episodes a day for nearly a week before I found how to stop that "Sent from..." signature.

As far as learning an iPhone? You're on your own there. We're Droids.

Those smart phone signatures at the bottoms of emails have always annoyed me. So when I got my phone one of the first things I did was turn off the signature. When I saw it again on DC I thought something got messed up but my settings looked right. I never thought an app would have that option for the poster. It's not the app's business.

Default settings, Andy. It's dee fault of the app creator that the setting is opposite to the way a user actually wants to use it.

Yes, on the iPhone it's on the DC app. Mine defaulted to the signature as well when there was that problem the other day. Of course I can't remember how I turned it off. I think you go to your profile on the "regular" site, and there's an option to turn it off.

DL, see CG's post #2 above. It's in the App menu.

Yep, that's probably where I found it.
