Web Works =/= native
EDIT: It does look quite nice in the screenshots though, and if I were the type to use such an app, you would probably be finding a PM from me quite soon. As it is, I'm not really, but still, kudos for creating an app that looks pretty good.
i now actually visit the forum more ofter due to the app... and not just because i created the app, but because it now has a native-looking UI.
PM me to sign up
You may also post your feedback here

Btw, I made this message from your app

I got a stupid question: Where is the back button to go back to the list of threads when you're done reading one?
OK, never mind. At first login I was directed at the Page just like it looked on the browser. So I closed the app and reopened and now I actually got the app running...sorry.

I really got used to the other CB Forums app, as that was easy to read for me.
But nevertheless I do like it and appreciate the effort.
'Restart the after you've logged in'
When enabled, it will play a (flash)video in the background, so it keeps the screen alive. (No other options yet that can do the same).
Edit; turn off Keep screen sliver in the options screen. That will fix it
Edit; only works when you turn on your music while the app is running. I might remove the keep screen alive option, or I'll look for a fix

- me down baby!
i like it a lot, is there a way to make the text larger in the forums, maybe fill up the screen more on landscape ?
i also have to push twice on most buttons
i dont mind the white text and black bg,
buttons are cool but maybe a lil smaller or a way to hide them so we can have more screen space
thanks for making this app much faster so far than my pb browser
it will include;
Music player stop bug fixed
laggy 'back button' fixed
added the page zoom
fixed onlaunch lagg
Music player fix; removed the option for beta 4; i really need to fix it
Back button; In progress
Beta4 is not released yet
Music bug fixed, and the back button is also fixed!

Getting back at my first findings.
-forum and messages are sometimes white (when you go HOME)
-forum and messages are black when hou navigate back by the path on top of the screen
-a lot of different use of collors in the menu's
- when entering a forum message you sometimes cant get rid of te bottom kenu bar while in landscape, you cant see the reply box then
- the useof different font types with the different menu's
- had some trouble logging in
- not possible to zoom
- music and movie player, so sound stops when entering bb forums beta
- buttons a bit laggy on the bottom
-like the way the screens slide over each other
- navigation is pretty smooth
- pages loading reallyfast
- scrolling goes super fast
-overall super trooper fast
I like it! Keep up the good work Jeroen.
I go nd test some more.
Thanks for your great feedback !
I fixed all the 'buggy' things you posted. Especially the musicplayer bug was very annoying.
I added a 'zoom' button in beta 4 (unreleased yet, I'll release it today)
Laggy backbutton is fixed
Loginscreen ; fixed
The replybox; just tap on it, and begin to type. It will automatically adjust to the screen and you can see what you're typing.
