Does everyone's JF app act the same? Am I using it wrong? Is it the apple app? Or does it just blow?

It just blows. Crappy search, pictures always fail to upload, can't see any pictures people have posted blah blah. The Autoguide app is better but I haven't tried the search on it.

I basically just refresh the current threads page till something catches my eye and I'll sometimes reply to it...... Can't even edit a post or else I would have had only 1 post in this stupid topic instead of 3. I think JF is a great place for all Jeepers of all kinds...but the app blows man. Haha the pics never load thats so true. I mean what's the deal here.?!?....

Why can't you edit a post?

When I try to edit my post, it fails to upload for who knows what reason. Honestly It don't bother me really on the editing posts drama, but the search function NEEDS to be addressed. I cannot, for the sake of mankind, find anything even related to what I'm searching for. It's a crying shame JF... A crying shame...

vB forum search also inherently sucks, Google works better.

I dunno what vB is, and Google seems to be the best option so far on my mobile device. I just wish Jeep Forum (JF) would make an updated, all around better JF app for the mobile user. come on JF! It's terrible.

I don't understand these threads. I have 16,000 mobile posts, most of which have been edited and there are hundreds of other people's posts that I have also edited without a single problem. Oh, and half the time I run a monthly contest from my iPhone as well.

It comes down to the end user. Gotta be smarter than the phone.

How does the "search" feature work for you? Be honest, because it don't work worth a crap for me. That's basically my only complaint.

The autoguide app is 1,000,000 Times better. I recommend using it and not the jeepforum app

I'd bet that a lot of these people are using the un-supported “Jeepforum” app and not the AutoGuide app.

AutoGuide does not own the app named “Jeepforum” and therefore can't change it or update it. The search on AutoGuide works decently well for me, on both AG forums I'm on.
