    The Android app is very blue, but it seems to be working fine. It's laid out a little different too, but I am sure I'll get used to it :)

    Just a heads up, the android app isn't connecting on my LG G5, it just does the same "can't connect to server" that it was throwing earlier.

    Thanks for working so hard to get it back up and running!

    It's working for me @MPRC. Have you updated it from the Play Store?

    I killed it manually a few times and then uninstalled and reinstalled. I haven't tried restarting my phone yet, but I've found the G5 to react oddly to other updates on smaller apps so I'm not too worried, I'll try again and update you guys as to my progress.

    The iOS app should be updated and available to download.
    I'm trying to figure out a solution for uploads but right now Tapatalk (grumble grumble tapatalk) will only allow us to upload if the images go to their servers, meaning we won't have any control over that content. This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to ditch Tapatalk altogether.
    Anyway, stay tuned.

    Works great. And looks great. Thanks @Josh

    It might help to be transparent with the cost of running the app. This would help in determining amount to donate. Thanks again

    It looks nice and runs smoother, but I'm still having issues with broken image links on android. (LG G5, up to date operating system, via wifi or data)
