Most Important Features Don't Work I downloaded and paid for Forum Runner just so that I coukd have my most visited forum on the go. Searching the forums, creating new thread, and replies work well. Although the 2 most important features don't work worth a dang. Every time I go to add an attachment from my gallery, like a picture, the app crashes. Push notifications don't work either, even after the 2 weeks it took to validate my account. If you can find your forum in Tapatalk, definitely go with that. Forum Runner should be your last resort
Great basic app for forums Been using this app in conjunction with my own forum and many of my members use it too to access my forum on the go. It is basic though in how it looks. Some themes would be nice or a way to pick up the forums existing themes perhaps. A free demo would be good too for those wanting to test it before a purchase. Buying without a proper test has been off putting so quite a few of my members. Great little app though.
Always waiting and no idea what for... I bought this app to keep track of a forum I'm interested in. I thought as it has a price, it would be a quality bit of software. Unfortunately it is far from it and most the time you spend time staring at the spinning circle and a white screen. Nothing seems to really work. I'm off a mind to write something better myself or use tapatalk. In its current state I would say not to waste your money on this, but hopefully in the future it will become much improved.
Could be better Its a handy and easy to use app. It was a simple matter to find the forum I was looking for within the program and though it isn't fancy it is functional. I do have one complaint, so far. My forum utilizes *spoiler* boxes. You cannot see any of the text hidden beneath those boxes in this app. Since the main post material is in those heavily used bits of code, this is a huge set back for me in terms of the usefulness of the program.
Won't let you post in forums you're already a member of. Customer service is also no help. Their response "I am sorry the app is not working for you. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do for you at this time. If you want a refund for the app, I recommend contacting Google Play." Can't do that since it took them over a day to respond to my complaint.
Phil LG G2X This app worked fine until I updated to contact Cyanogenmod Forums. The app simply does not not not work. An error message appears tell me I have outdated plugins and an outdated software. What's up? I paid for this app for the exclusive use on this forum. Please look into and fix. Thank You. If you can't fix I would like a refund.
Best forum reader, but full of bugs they never fix Most avatars and images never load. Can't add reputation. Often flakes out. Signatures don't show, etc. I use it because competitors are far worse, but this app is not good at all. Oh the latest update removed the favorites button so I have to look up my forum every time! Awful!
WORST piece of trash ever. This is a very misleading description. You cannot input the web address of the forum you want/need. I got this for ONE forum that I frequent, and it is not listed nor can it be searched properly. PLEASE REFUND ME IMMEDIATELY. And maybe consider a FREE DEMO.
I used to love Forum Runner I used to love this app - - but unfortunately development seems to have stalled out. This means that it gets buggier with every OS update. The bigger issue is when the forum software gets updated, Forum Runner refuses to work half the time. I've been advised to switch to Tapatalk from a couple of forums I regularly read where this has happened. I don't really care for Tapatalk, but if it at least works, I guess that's what I'll have to do.
Photo support is very poor! No zoom/pan, crashes often when browsing photos! I frequently visit forum where lots of photos are posted and I'm p$##ed of forumrunner inability to deal with them. Not worth the money!
Terrible Formatting Looks like they haven't supported this app in a long time. Additionally, I hate that there are constant ads despite having to pay for the app. Stick with tapatalk if your favorite forum supports it.
Sorry excuse for a forum app You have to click more forums button at bottom of the page to see more, but constantly. Lots of useless forums in the list that are available. 5 to 10 seconds of waiting before content shows up. Over priced for what you get. I would get a refund if I could. Grade I would give is a D-
False Advertising Wish I could give it zero stars. A message popped up when I was going to my favorite discussion forum to get this app to make it easier to participate in the forum. So I got it. Come to find out, that particular forum isn't even apart of this app. There should be a list of forums included in this app that a customer can view before they buy. And advertisement for this app should NOT pop up on a forum that's not included. Sad that people in our society feel that they need to be con artists to get ahead.
Worst app I have ever used! This app is so pointless. If you want to post a thread, reply, or anything other than a private message, this app is not for you. If you wanted to have a app to have your different forums saved so you could visit them whenever you wanted, this app is not for you. If you wanted to pay 1.99 to look at posts you could view on the Internet for free, then download this app. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS AWFUL APP.
Can't add favorite Utter rubbish, no way of adding forum to favourites and screen icons are only showing half above the bottom of the screen. and I paid for this piece of junk and can't get a refund.
Awful. Had this on my iPhone, so quickly downloaded it when I switched to Android. It was awesome on iPhone, ducks on Android. Basically pointless. Photos are tiny and unable to scroll through them. Doesn't hold place in same forum and if it does, it doesn't refresh. Waste of $1.99.
Works. Could be better. Allow zooming on photos, image display is generally terrible and needs completely rebuilding. Issue with links not opening page in Chrome, but browser opens okay. No idea why all links go through some third party site either. Post / reply screen is very basic. Browsing posts is okay, though.
Not impressed at all. Bought this to browse my forums, but it's so basic and the features are sub par. It often just hangs on connecting to forums and never comes back. It's definitely something I wouldn't recommend or use in it's current state. Even if it was free.
Buggy and inefficient The menu at the bottom is cropped off so I can barely see the icons and there are a few other minor bugs. Also the app is far less efficient and customizable than Tapatalk. Too bad one of my forums dropped Tapatalk support and only supports Forum Runner.
Totally sucks Outdated, not supporting many forum TAGS, photo view is also poor. Totally disappointed, just avoid it. Nothing changed.. What a shame for an app developed by VB. The irony..
Why are there Ads???? STAY AWAY!!!! This PAID app has ads! do not buy this app till they fix this issue. Tapatalk dosent have ads, I would get that insted. Plus this app is full of bugs.
Does the job....barely Pretty poor app on android. Only bought it again because it worked so well on my old iphone. Pictured load wierd. Cant zoom on them. Hard to edit posts and remove pictures. Would love to give it 5 stars.
Very poor. Functionally it kinda works but you only get half of the menu icons along the bottom and there is no Android Menu button even though the app tells you to use it to create favorites. Very poor standard of build in this app.
Poor functionality Menu is gone to add forums to favorites, to make new threads, or to even make comments now. Can still get around it to make comments by responding to someone. Just going downhill fast.
Can't interact Really liked this app, but after I got a new phone, all functionality ceased. I can't search, access profiles, start threads, or directly reply to them (I can quote another message and then erase it to reply, but that's ridiculous). Not sure what went wrong, but this app is a poor reader at this point.
This app is great but needs updated for new Android OS. One cannot do anything other than read threads. No reply or refresh feature etc. 5 stars up until now though.
Not sure who to blame Had FR for while but changed my tablet and now I can't do anything. Well that's not true, I can respond if I quote a post. I can't create favorites or refresh, or even generate my own post. I guess galaxy 4 tab users are just SOL
Stone age Dude. It's the year Marty goes to the future and the GUI on this is what qualifies for a PAID app?!?! This should be a legit crime. User interface is so crappy it's pixilated on my S5 and Xperia z3. Seriously this app needs a 10 year overdue aesthetic update. Get real man...
Painless and simple Excellent app. Simple and easy to use. With the latest update, I’m able to browse through my favorite forums on the go without experiencing any crashes, adding pictures and attachments are easier than ever.
Display issues with galaxy s5 I've never been fond of this app, it's always had glitches and image rendering issues, but a forum I frequent only supports this for mobile viewing. A recent upgrade to galaxy s5 made it even worse, now there are screen size display issues and no way to mark favorites. Looks like the devs have also abandoned it...
Well then Not at all what I was expecting I was hoping to be able to post on my forums heck even reply would be nice. I'm not at all pleased with this app or myself for not reading the reviews before blowing money on it going to uninstall from both phone and website
Why are you here ? Not useful to me at all. Google says " kaching ". I've lost faith in their apps that don't work, or do what they say. So kiss my money and time good bye.
Crashes still. Crashes, men's don't appear so can't save something as a favorite, useless. Easier to go to the web forum.
I love this app, but please come out with some updates. I can't access any menus on my phone, I can't refresh. Navigation is a pain in the ass, yet I can't bring myself to use anything else
It works. Nothing spectacular or fancy. It let's you browse forums easily, but the site have to register to forum runner first. I think the business model is a bit backwards. Should be free to users, charge the site operators instead. That should get a bit more adoption.
Used to like it When I first downloaded this app it was great for a simple way to browse my favorite forums, but now that I've upgraded my phone, it's useless. I can read but can't reply or save favorites forums because the bottom of the screen is completely cut off. Going back to using Chrome to access my forums.
Slow slow sloooooooooooow Using on nexus 7 and htc one. But not using cos so crap.
Extremely disappointed. I paid money to use this app and have not been able to use it once. I continuously get an error message say that the server is too busy. Unacceptable.
Just doesn't work! This app repeatedly crashes on opening and when I do manage to run it it will not open any of the larger threads on the forum, giving an "unknown response" message from the server. It seems that there is nothing we can do about this despite being paying users, as their forum appears to be for forum admins and there are several such issues reported there that have been completely ignored. As a result this app is practically unusable, which is not good for what probably could be the main rival to Tapatalk.
Poor Tapatalk is a much more reliable and versatile forum plugin. Forum Runner crashes regularly, has image cache problems and hangs. Unfortunately there are few vialable alternatives.
