    Recently (about a week ago) I have had to start the app twice, the first time I start it it opens but nothing is listed the second time it usually works, but not always.
    I tried reinstalling the app but the problem continues

    Mine too. Android. It happened when the menu changed. Can no longer get to the classifieds either. Seems if tge ap is open but not active it wont reconnect with the server unless you close and restart the ap

    Just failed again. Its better than it was. For the record I'm running android 5.0 on a galaxy s5. Seems the issue occurs when the ap is selected fron the tiled view that shows all the open aps. If selected from there it (sometimes) will bring the ap up with no text, just the white background. Touching the TDPRI at the upper left will cause it to try to connect to the server but it just spins without loading anything. Solution is to close and restart the ap.

    We're working with the developer on this but haven't heard anything.

    You might try switching to Tapatalk and adding TDPRI to your forum's list while we figure this out.

    Chalk up another one. Mine will sit on the blank screen saying "Connecting to Server" indefinitely. I'm on a Droid Turbo with the latest Android software.

    It has come to the point where I barely use this app anymore, which is a shame because I love this community. I can't start new threads I can only reply to already existing topics. Please fix it, I miss it

    The others are talking about having to launch the app twice, but then it works normally. You seem to be saying something completely different.

    Why can't you start new threads? What happens when you attempt to do this?

    If you can reply to thread there should be no reason you cannot start a new thread.

    Also, have you tried using your mobile browser - it works well and would allow you to do almost everything - if not more - then the app.

    If that's the case, why was an app released at all?

    Some folks want an "app" and won't settle for anything but an "app."

    So, we offer a mobile phone version of the site, a TDPRI App and are also on Tapatalk.

    This is my solution as well. I have to physically close out of the TDPRI app in order to open it and have it successfully connect. Strange thing is, I don't need to do that for Strat Talk.

    What Android version are you using and what Android device are you using?

    Have you tried the mobile version of the site?? Or have you tried Tapatalk? Both are viable alternatives until we find out more about your problem.
