FT iOS app 1.4 discussion and feedback

NOTE: The app is not supported nor available through the App Store. The app will no longer work at all since the 28 March 2016 revisions to FlyerTalk.

FT iOS app (v. 1.4 is the most recent) is not currently available, nor is it supported. See IBobi's post, duplicated here:

As to the App crashes, we are no longer supporting the app in its current form and have recommended using the full site on a mobile browser such as Safari or Chrome for the time being.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please use either the mobile skin or the full site on your mobile browser until such time as a new app is available. Thank you!

New Apple App 1.4

Did you even test the new 1.4 app for flyertalk forum?

There is now a huge space between every post in a thread. Go on. Check for yourself.

And there are overlapping issues between posts where they merge and become unreadable.

Hope you fix these issues.

The new icons and transparency of the font / smiley icon are improvements. As well as being able to properly start a new thread in a forum

Just came by to post something similar.

Still haven't addressed pretty much any of the major complaints about the iPhone app that have been discussed before.

I see the extra space issue happening -- it only appears to happen when someone is quoted in the post -- that generates a big space at the end of the post, before the next one starts. Are you seeing the space in other instances?

Can you link a thread where the overlap is happening, because I'm not seeing that.

Thank you!

Subforums are now defaulting to OPEN, which was a major complaint that has been addressed.

The "first unread" option does not bring one (or at least me) the the first unread post as it does on the desktop site and in some cases, it's two or 3 pages behind where it should be from the first unread post

Did that just happen? Is it happening in the forum too?

Any of your other apps doing this as well?

Since that is clearly a bug that appeared in this new version today, I would expect they will address it as part of the roll-out process rather than waiting for a whole new build.

Very pleasantly surprised to see that I can now actually read announcement posts on my iPhone ^ but.....

There are currently two site wide announcements-1 is a poll/survey and the other is about frequent business traveling and I opened up the poll/survey post and I was able to take the poll/survey but when I open the other announcement (frequent business traveling), it opens up the same survey announcement post

Possibly it hadn't been tested with more than 1 announcement running on teh same page. I'll have them look at it. Thank you
