MgoDroid / MgoBlog Android App - Force Close / Reset Issues

Submitted by aenima0311 on May 7th, 2011 at 11:40 PM

Has anyone else been getting these constantly since the update?

Is there a way to reinstall the old version?

Thunderbolt here as well. I've noticed the restart issue. My biggest beef is that the threads are all backwards, so you have to read from the bottom to the top and then replies are top to bottom. Very confusing.

Honestly, I just open a brower and view the full html website. Loads fast on 4g.

Saw the complaints re: new version and didn't update. But as for a wish list, the app needs to download the content so posts can be accessed without reception/wireless. Maybe not everyone rides a subway like me, but perhaps your office bathroom is beyond the reach of the local cell phone tower? Please, join me in this cause.

We're going to add this as a user selected option in the next big release. Multiple users have emailed me about caching articles to the SD Card, and we're looking into it. Our first priority however is getting the app as stable as possible.

We're making a preferences page for the next release, with the option to change the ordering of comments. It's trickier than you would think to implement, but we're on it.

Love the app, no forced closes for me thus far. I like that the most current posts are at the top so you don't have to re-read the same posts to get to the new ones. I notice some posted links are not highlighted to click on taking you to the website but not sure if that's a user or program issue?

I haven Incredible 2 and I don't even bother with the app anymore because there are so many bugs. I can rarely even read a board post without it restarting.

Hey everyone,

So I currently have a rooted Moto Droid 1 that runs Cyanogenmod 7, but I try to test the app with every firmware on my phone before releasing it, and I was unable to reproduce the critical bug that was reported on Monday. It looks like the bug is only showing up on newer phones, which is boggling my mind right now. I am in desperate need of some information and anyone that is encountering the bug should reply to this comment:

1. What phone/firmware are you using?

2. What were you doing exactly in the app when it force closed? The bug reports are sometimes not very helpful, and these ones are not giving me any useful information at all. 


I want everyone to know that I'm working my ass off trying to fix this, but it is nearly impossible on my Droid 1. If anyone in the Ann Arbor area would like to meet up at Espresso Royale or something and bring their phone so I could get full logcat dumps (much more informative than the bug reports that Google sends me), I would start jumping for joy.

Htc Thunderbolt

running Das Bamf remix 1.6.1

an example i just did

load up app for first time click hello Pharoah Brown loads perfectly can read whole article

load up hello mario ojemundia loads fine start to scroll.  Closes and restarts app at splash screen.  

It's wierdseems to be targetting specific main or board posts.

Is there any chance you could move the ad to the bottom of the page?  Also, it would be sweet if you could side swipe to switch between the different tabs (similar to the News  & Weather app that comes with Android)

HTC Sense UI, Android 2.2 (Froyo)

Sometimes I'll load a front page post and it loads prefectly, other times it restarts as soon as the post starts to open.  Same with board posts, seems to be no rhyme or reason to the force close/reboots of the app.

This only started after the last update.

Just wondering how the testing is going. I work for Verizon Wireless and currently own two HTC phones, one Thunderbolt and the other Incredible 2. I'd be willing to send you my Thunderbolt if you need access to one. I don't use it, and it currently isn't even activated on a line. Let me know,
