OK I've installed 5.0.6.
It's radically different than 1.6.

Janet,

Thanks for your response. I have followed your instructions to the letter and am still experiencing the same problem.

FYI: Of the two Trawler apps on Playstore, I installed the one with 1,000 downloads. The app manager on my Android tablet says it is version 1.3.18

You need to install the other version. 5.0.6.

Absolutely switch to the 5.0.6 version. It's light years ahead of the old one.

Good to hear the new version, 5.0.6, is working properly.

I have just tried the other app (currently shows only 100 installs!). It does not work properly on my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2): links within posts don't work at all, no options for quote etc and I find the layout with pictures makes the whole thing cumbersome. I will revert to the previous app and use full-site mode if I need to click a link. Thanks to all for the input.

There is an option for quote. It is the little return arrow in the lower right hand corner of the post you want to quote.

You can alter the settings of pictures in the settings menu.

It really is much better once you figure it out.

Did you remove the old version and do a complete reboot before installing the new?

Only you can decide that. Are you happy with the way it is working? Do the links work?

Then load version 5. Totally different. Remember to remove the old one first.

Is it an Android problem that I can't find a way to start a new thread? I have several icons along the bottom of the screen but none of those seem to be to reply or to start a new thread. Can't find it with the search function either.

Thanks for any help.

Greg.. Your using the old Ap. You need to switch to ver. 5.0.2 ( or something close to that) read the whole thread.

My tablet problem with links not opening corrected itself a few days ago after much hair pulling and AP uninstalling. Uninstalled and reinstalled about half a dozen times. Shut tablet off and took it to a computer guru (my son). Finally just gave up with the links. If I needed one bad enough I could just open the full version. Like majic, the links started working again after I quit trying. LOL.

I wanted to start a new thread but there was no place to open one so I tagged onto the end of this one to ask. Seems the answer was the same. I had kept reinstalling the version 1.????, not realizing there was a 5.--- elsewhere. Now there is only the new 5. something version in the AP store.
