    Aye, we were warned the app would crap out eventually as eg did stuff.

    It's the end of days, i tell's ya. :(

    My favourite app, but i guess i'll have to adapt to mobile view eventually, since we all know the mooted return of portable view is just a cruel joke by craigy.:(

    Problems for me as well I'm afraid. Failed login prompts and news not loading.

    Any plans for an IOS version? Used the app quite often when i owned a Note 3 and enjoyed. It would be great if we could get an IOS version.

    Still being really funny for me, can't log in sometimes and the forum often now won't load. I'll be on the mobile site til fixed (if it can be?) still. Happy to donate to keep it going :)

    Had issues with login recently but I have closed the app and it seems to have logged me back in.

    What's happening is a symptom of one api web server of many being dead behind a load balancer.

    Refreshing a page or opening the app again will eventually (usually first attempt) make stuff appear.

    It's annoying unless eg fix their backend, I might update the app to retry few times.

    Am I going crazy or do Group threads not show in the All view of the forum?

    No you're not. Either swipe out the menu and tap the refresh icon or close the app and restart a few times. Freaky is aware.

    Hey, anyone having issues signing in on the app? Have they changed their login api? Been a couple of months now.

    Yeah it's been like that for a while. Keep trying to close and re-open the app will eventually log you in but I've all but given up on it now and using the mobile site instead.

    Shame as the app is/was excellent. No idea why EG aren't taking it on or develop their own.

    they can't destroy your browser with massive all-encompassing ads that piss you off.

    Just go to your settings, click on your password, confirm, don't re enter, close the app. Reopen the app and all's good.

    Obviously needs a fix, but for now this is a work around.

    Eurogamer - get your act together as it is easily the best gaming mobile app out there!

    Nice, that works. Saves me having to repeatedly close & re-open the app until i can eventually post!

    Cheers!

    Sad to say it looks like the plug has been pulled on the API. Maybe it's a mistake but with the upcoming redesign, maybe this is it.

    Will keep an eye on things.

    That's a real shame. I hardly come here any more since the app didn't work well. I'll be probably visit here less and less. It's too much of a pain on mobile. In wonder how many are the same?

    Thanks for all your hard work. I really appreciate it.

    I don't visit the site unless I have to (to send this post for example).

    I've no idea how this all works but I have noticed for me that the issues never affect the forum. Is there a way that it could be rejigged to just be an EG forum app?

    Edit: Just noticed after all this time you can set the forum as the default screen on startup. I'm an idiot. Still not letting me sign in though, maybe there's a way to remove the non forum part and stick in a sign in screen. Again just wondering.

    Saw that the stories weren't updating this Morning and worried a bit, but hoped it was something minor.
    Real shame if that's the end. Been using this app for years, and it's honestly been fantastic throughout. Really one of my favourite apps, no bullshit, just a nice, clean view of Eurogamer and the Forum

    I've been using the app for the last few years and it's been an absolute godsend - thanks for all your hard work freakybun. I'd detail why I like it so much but theguy above me explained it better than I could.
