Hey Nigel! Thank you very much for the support, appreciate it and upvoted you!

You’re welcome. @APPICS
Looking forward to your full roll out.

It is becoming annoying.. After the update everyday i need to login again from mobile, and obviously if this continue i have to stop using the app because i can't always put the key to login everyday. Please fix the problem, or i can't use the app anymore.

Hey @thecryptotrader! Sorry to hear you are experiencing issues. Can you please let me know if you are on iOS or android, as well as the current software on your phone so that we can investigate this bug ? Thanks!

android. Don't know, but i always have the latest version.. and it should not be about the version, because also in other phones happens.

Same here but I am using iOS. I now can’t even post either. Hope these issues get resolved quickly, I really like the app.

Hi @appics
I did have a look on my app center and it say it was updated yesterday so maybe my phone did it automatically.My app version is 1.20.3 (1708) can you confirm it is latest version?

Also I have posted using your app so you can leave a comment and I will see I will get some notification.

7.5% beneficiaries were mentioned nowhere. And what do we get in return? Nothing. The app looks amazing and it is easy to use. But I can easily use any other UI/platform connected to Steem.
