Just a quick post here to let folks know that we have just pushed an update to the official TouchArcade app [Free] live in the App Store.

This latest update primarily addresses a pesky bug that, at times, prevented users from being able to leave comments on a post unless they logged out of the application and then back in again. This bug has been squashed, and various other tweaks and optimizations have been put in place. So, please fire up the app on your iPhone or iPad, grab the update, and comment away!


If, for some crazy reason, you're not using our app yet -- give it a try. It'll connect you with our latest editorials and point you straight to the latest and hottest iOS games out there. It's a Universal app, optimized for both the iPhone and the iPad, and it really is the best way to get the most out of TouchArcade.

    I come bearing bad news! I'm completely unable to comment on this article via iPad (I'm on PC now). Earlier today I signed out and back in again in an attempt to comment and it didn't work, and the same problem occurs after updating. So... it's worse than ever for me, but it happened before the latest update hit. Puzzling.

  • ImJPaul

    Lets see if this whole commenting without signing in and out thing works. I've just been doing it on every site because I've been so used to doing it for sooooo long.

    • psk

      Testing a reply, let's see!

  • ImJPaul

    Finally the Toucharcade forums will be flooded with comments again. The number of comments on most threads dropped substantially when this started happening. That makes you realize how many people are using the app and not so much their computers.

    Also, I'd you read the reviews on the AppStore people thought the error message was TA blocking their username. So, I'm sure TA lost like 5 users who were completely devastated that they thought they got blocked.

    Anyways, HURRAYYYYY!!!!

  • animagnum

    Yay it works!

  • garret44

  • nightc1

    So I wonder if this will post. I thought the articles took discus accounts while the forums took regular local TA accounts. I wonder which this'll be.

    • nightc1

      Ah looks like TA account works for this now. That was the main reason I signed up at discus.

    • MidianGTX

      I like the sound of this! Have you suggested it in the site feedback forum?

      • dancj

        Just use the iPhone's built-in auto-brightness.

  • jamsie07

    Awesome

  • themostunclean

    My comments were always so utterly fantastic and entertaining that I would always go through the trouble of signing out and then in again so that the public would not be denied my amazing intellect.

    Thanks for making it easier for people to bask in my glory TA!

    Posting a comment of "ok" should get deleted by mods.
    Posting a cranky-pants critique of people who comment "OK" should get millions of likes from fellow commenters who require a significant addition to the conversation in each comment (like YOU!).
    Last point -- I had the bug on the app, I logged in and out, problem solved. Was wondering if I'd gotten banned. (Not yet! heh)
