I have a feature request. Or is it a UI request? I don't know. But anyway, I think it would be awesome if you added that snap back to the list feature like they have on Inbox. You know how when you scroll to the end of the article if you could keep pulling down ,or uo if you are at the top, and it snaps back to the list view of stories. Instead of hitting the back button. I think that would be dope.

Would be good to have a search bar on the app home page so that you can easily find articles

Agree completely.  I think search is something that is supposed to come with the complete app redesign that is in work. Phil once said that it takes a good bit of of back end work.

 +Phil Nickinson correct me if I'm wrong. Any updates?

Only been a month since we teased it, so figure it's about time to push out that Samsung multiwindow update, right? 

Also (fingers crossed) look for those damned link crashes to stop. 

We'll get this update (1.8.4) pushed out to y'all this afternoon.

A mark all as read in the forums would be a nice addition to the app.

Actually for me it is not even the comments. It is when the app launches.

OK. Let's try this again. v1.8.1 is rolling out this afternoon. We've tested internally and aren't crashing on update. (Again, sorry about that. But bugs happens, and this is a beta group, and we all opted-in for it.)

So ... Give it a whirl. And, yes, we're hard at work at a major redesign!

Thanks, folks!

When opening a link from Google+ to Android Central the AC app crashes, when I click on the link a second time the app opens correctly. Happens every time I open a from G+.

I would like to see a tab for device reviews or just a devices tab.

When the app crashes is the standard app crash dialogue that pops up all that needs to be sent, or would posting here be preferable?

Both would help.

Pushing out a beta update tonight for your fine bunch of beta testers.

Fixes include the crash when you rotate your phone (whoopsie), and hopefully some more help for those who are experiencing crashes when going to the comments after opening an article from a social link. We've also done a little hackery to fix the YouTube integration.

We're headed to Google I/O this week, but sing out as soon as you can if you have issues with this build.

Thanks!

ICYMI: We've switched developers and are slowly getting back to work. Today we tried to push out a new beta build, but that obviously didn't go so great and so we pulled it.

If you already took v1.8 and it's crashtastic, you'll want to clear data, or uninstall and reinstall and you'll be back on 1.7.

Sorry about that, but remember that this IS a beta group. Bugs and crashes will happen sometimes. That's why we're all here.

If you want something less likely to see that sort of implosion, you can use this link to opt-out of the beta track. https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.androidcentral.app

Thanks for everything though. Hopefully we'll have this fixed soon.
