I have noticed a problem after recently changing the font on my S2, to Rosemary from the default font.

Now there is no way to differentiate between the threads you have read and the new ones, and everything looks the same.

Anyone else having the same issue?

This is strange arjithin - but chances are its one of those small Google bugs. Perhaps Google Play would have notified you of an update on the next restart or something like that.

Nice suggestion. In fact it had been requested before and we've already suggested it to the devs.

Go to settings, and turn on "Remote Thumbnailer". This should speed up image loading.

Unfortunately you can't attach more images when editing a post at the moment. Still not sure about the app-crash issue when uploading, sorry.

Nope Phamilyman - nothing on BB. We had considered Tapatalk, but things didn't work out at the time. Lets see how things go in the future.

See my reply to 'Enveee' in this post. That should help.

New/unread threads are shown as bold in the app. Chances are the font you picked doesn't have a bold version - hence the problem of not being able to differentiate.

Thanks, Rehaan. With this font, it rather looks like everything is bold and unread. Guess I have no option but to go back to the old font.

When are the devs going to migrate current app to use Holo design? Current look of the app is so gingerbread era. Is this even planned for upcoming versions?

Hi Rehaan,

Tried the setting suggested by you. Indeed it has solved the issue of slow loading images.....

This has hugely improved my TBHP app experience. Thanks.

The forum was down for few minutes earlier today. I was getting data base error when I tried to access the forum from my PC.

I checked the app just now, its working fine.

Please check again and confirm

Just got this app on my note 2 and man it it awesome! Now I can read all the posts etc on the road... too good.

Since I am on the internet space, I'll post more actionable comments after I test it out for a week.
Cheers again!

Anyone having the issue of the screen suddenly becoming bright when you are scrolling as you read?

Have you tried switching "Auto Brightness" OFF?

Yup It's not auto-brightness related. Just that when you touch the screen the whites brighten up . Doesn't happen on other apps. I don't think it's brightness related and I'm running a JellyBean ROM on my GNexus with a custom kernel if that matters.

Rehan, sorry about the wrong spelling for your name in last post. My phone autocorrection is at fault. Here is a screen shot of what I mean

And then the same page showed up nicely on browser. As here

Is it possible to get an option for the inverted page layout? I mean black background with white letters which is good for reading at night? I find that's more easier in darkness plus some battery savings too.
