Do to the parse errors and various issues with the older app platform we have been developing a new replacement. The new Garage Talk application is live today and will replace the Rennlist and IB Automotive applications.

Will you be releasing an update that takes advantage of the device screen resolution? iPhone 6+ could certainly use this.

That is in discussion as a future update but we are unsure of which release version at this point. Depends on the amount of early bugs as to where it appears in the priority list.

How about an iPad app? The zoomed iPhone interface looks like garbage.

Personally I'd rather you stayed with the customized site specific apps rather than one that rules them all.

I'll be sticking with the old apps until you block them or come up with something better than this.

those huge ads are annoying. any way to get them disabled in the app? in-app purchase perhaps?

The app really needs to be optimized for the iPad, I sent numerous requests while I was testing through TestFlight but received no feedback.

This is great! I was looking for the right place to bitch about the Rennlist iOS app when I found this thread. I'll give it a whirl!

Bad news... it can't handle this post.

The app just crashes on my iPhone 4s. Loads just fine using chrome browser on same device.

The new app is averse to home improvements.

This loads slowly but doesn't crash on my 4S. Let me know if it continues to happen. We have a release with nearly a dozen bug fixes coming in the next week that should speed things up and avoid these issues.

Sorry for the early problems but we wanted to get this out because the older app is unusable for most users due to current parse error problems.

Got the new app. The ads suck. That's why I pay for a subscription. How do you shut them off?

The ads are in test mode and will likely be removed from the application in the next release. This is an early release so we are testing all features and will continue to tweak based on what we find in testing and on user feedback.

oh ok. thank you IB -

My user feedback is that



as soon as a user with a paid subscription logs in, the ads should disappear.

For some folks ads are even



worse than parse errors. Because they're invasive. And interrupt the flow and continuity for the user.

I guess I'll just use the website on my laptop until it the app is actually an improvement over what has



been a drag for so long already.

Naturally I'll still use the phone sometimes, but I'll still curse every ad the moment I see it.



Thanks for the quick r



eply. I appreciate it.
