Apologies also -- OT -- warning -- vent ahead . . .



I don't like the graphics of most mobile apps, and the over-simplified layout. They are like a cartoon version of the main site, intended for the growing number of I-net zombies walking around with mobile devices in their hands -- right in front of their noses and eyes -- pecking out their daily sustenance of thoughtless drivel on FarceBook etc..

Twitting away the days in brief bursts of boisterous bullsh..

Don't we aspire to be more than twits . . . ?


Give me a 15" monitor screen, a keyboard, mouse, landscape format -- like a printed page -- and good typing skills,

yeah

now we can communicate in depth about something . . .

And the graphic presentation of the information "looks right" . . .

And I can get up from the chair and leave behind the act of written communication for a while.




I guess that begins the conversation about mobile apps . . . thanks for asking.


PS -- "don't like change" is another phrase which comes to mind -- not quite a Luddite, but . . .

Back on the iPad FYI a couple of hours later, and the pop up appeared 4 times, then I was able to log in normally with the new longer password. I had deleted cookies and cleared cache at the end of the last session.

OTRA,

That explains it quite well and makes sense.

I have been using the app on a tablet and Android phone and have gotten really used to it. It is the first and almost only app I utilize.

Sometimes I also miss the expanded version but not to much anymore. I am rarely on a desktop computer anymore so if I sign onto Airforums it's feels quite cumbersome to jump from one thread to the next and lots of scrolling.

Thx

LOL!
All the reasons you don't like app versions are all the reasons I do like apps!
No ads!
Just the basics-

How do you get rid of this d--n pop up?

I've signed out and back in, it still shows up on every new page I open here.

I'm on an IPad mini, in Safari....which I prefer to the app.

The best advice I can give is to open up the forum, or any page you want to see, and wait for the pop up to open, then "X" it closed, then wait for it to pop up again, "X" it closed again, etc..

After a few minutes it seems to stop popping up on its own. The highest count was 17-18 pop ups in a row, then 6 or so, sometimes only 1.

When the popping up seems to have stopped, then try logging in. If the pop up comes up again in the middle of doing the password, "X" it out again, and start the password again from the beginning.

***** Very important IMO -- check the "Remember Me" box for each log in. *****

I am on a laptop now, but the last time I used the iPad Mini it did take some time to log in.

Good luck!

[still off-topic]

Thanks. For mainly tablet and phone use, the App makes sense I guess . . .

As an example of why I like using a computer, keyboard, mouse etc., please see Post No. 8 in the following thread. To convey the same amount of information using a phone or mobile device would be very difficult IMO!

As Walter Brennan's character used to say in The Guns of Will Sonnet --

"No brag, jus' fact . . . "

Hopefully we will have some feedback from Janet or other Moderator about any tweaks they may have been making behind the scenes. I am guessing that we are not the only ones with hiccups, but the common thread of an iPad Mini is interesting, although maybe not relevant?

It seems like maybe the pop-up comes when you are logging on to a different Wi-Fi network.
It doesn't seem to pop up when logging on to a network that you have previously logged in to.

Not sure about that, as I clean cache and delete cookies after every Internet session . . .

As I understand it, from a previous Mod post somewhere, the site here leaves a cookie which prevents the pop up after one has logged in.

Deleting cookies however sends the user back to Jail without collecting the $200, to log in again as a new guest user, whom the site does not recognize as a previous user (or his/her WIFI network).
