I can access my account just fine if I couldn't then I wouldn't post this.

What I'm asking or if someone can tell me is is that on the Google Play Store for Android there was a plumbing forum app which I have always used now it seems like it doesn't exist anymore can anyone confirm this or not I prefer to use the app instead of going onto my computer and accessing this form online

Can't you access the site from your phone manually and have it remember it?

I can access it through my phone by using the internet the question that I'm asking though is what happened to the app???
I much rather prefer the layout of the app it is much simpler the design is different and much easier to use.

Just to make sure everyone is clear I can access the site perfectly fine I'm just asking what happened to the plumbing forum APP.

Southern California,
You are referring to the actual Plumbingfrorums phone app? That went away when we transferred from vBulletin to our Xenforo format a few years ago. If you were able to have the app running just a few weeks ago, this will prove how computer dumb I really am.

By the way, you can still "PIN" this forum to the face page of your tablet, you just won't have the old logo and you will need to manually label it as "Plumbing Forums." To do so, simply type www.plumbingforums.com into your browser bar, when the site pops up, his the three dots or lines, which is usually on the top right of your screen, and click "add to home screen."

I'm surprised you were able to use the app as it was turned off some time ago. I double checked and the app setting is not in this software now. Xenforo is made to be very mobile friendly, so once you log onto it via mobile browser and save it should be much better than an App. You will get the full function of the forum. And if you don't like it in up and down (portrait mode) turn it to landscape.

Highlighting fixed

You can now highlight and hit delete if you want to get rid of a line in a post. Or use it to apply a top bar editing function.

Well to be honest with you guys I'm sad to say but the app was very convenient and if you're telling me that it was pushed away years ago and I was still able to use it then I guess I got my money's worth.

I will say one thing though I will be on this form a lot less often now since I can't use the app talk to you guys soon

The app is back online. I did some research and saw that it had not been off-line. We just needed and updated link to make it work. Done now. So @voletl no excuse not to visit the forum and your friends!

I've reported the not staying logged in. It's happening a few other places I visit. I expect it fixed sometime today.
