Now that the app has gone, is it going to be replaced?

And what security concerns were there? This came right out of the blue.

Tapatalk is shit, but it least you could still use it on your phone. I rarely look on my computer and mostly just use my phone, won't be the only one I'm sure.

I use my phone 99% of the time when visiting AHB and use my phone’s browser. I tried the app once and found the web based platform through the browser easier to use.

Yeah, personally, I find the app easier to use, because then it brings up all the new posts in one spot. Anyway, I'll just have to only look on the puter.

I'm talking about the iPhone app?

You can't refresh cookies that I can find

That response from admin was to a guest post from me yesterday - I couldn't log in to the new version with 2FA through a browser. Not sure why my post wasn't shown, would make things a bit clearer.

Hahaha, yeah that would make more sense. I cannot see it!

Thought the app was amazing, used it all the time. Upvote for replacing.

To make a direct link icon on your phone. One click and you're on the site.

For those on an android phone.
1. Go to Chrome mobile browser.
2. Type in the forum name and pull it up.
3. Log in.
4. Look at top of forum page on right for 3 vertical dots

For iPhone, click the icon on the bottom of the screen, center of the page as if you were saving a file and you can add to your home screen.

Either of these will create a link on your phone home screen. Then you will just need to touch it and open the forum.
Whatever page you are on when you save, that is what you will open up to.

The mobile site really is painful in comparison to the app. I really only use the site when I'm at a computer now which is far less often.

I was wondering what happened too. I used the app all the time and found it better to navigate than tapatalk or the mobile browser. Hope it does get replaced.

So for anyone who hasn't followed the instructions above from AHB_admin, I recommend doing so. I seems to work better than just a standard mobile browser Page and is a good substitute for the app.

Not getting any notification that the app was shut down was disappointing. I mucked around for a week or two thinking it was my devices or account, even deleted and reinstalled the app before emailing admin. They were quick to respond though, with directions as above and explained why the app had been shut down.

We would have liked to give a heads up, but if we had waited and done that for 24 to 48 hours, the possible security issue may have been used. Then everyone would have been bummed out.
1. The post about it being taken down should have shown in the Yesterday's Forum Activity email and shown on New Posts.
2. The thread about it should have shown in the Yesterday's Forum Activity email and the New Posts if you logged in by mobile browser or laptop.
3. It's been being discussed here as seen above, and those that have used Contact Us have had a reasonably quick response explaining it.
