    using the forum's mobile app

    I am missing something. I installed the app on my android. When an email notification arrives and I click the link to read the thread, I get a page asking me if I want to install the app. It is installed, but somehow not linked to my email.
    any ideas?

    I do believe the email links direct you to a browser window. Even the links to other forum posts open a browser window from within the app. Most annoying but i haven't found a way to change it, it may be dependent on which android version and what browser but doubt it. Which app did you install, autoguide or Cadillac app?

    Re: using the forum's mobile app

    I installed the cadillac app. When I click on a notification, it directs me to an install page of that app, and it is already installed. the email notification should auto open the app, I would think. I must have missed something in the setup...

    Re: using the forum's mobile app

    You didn't. Clicking on a link in an email, from your email app on your phone, has one of two ways to open. First way is to open it into your web browser app, and second is to directly into the app.

    Now that the Cadillac App hasn't been updated in over a year or two and is no longer supported by CF. It'll never happen.

    For the longest time, YouTube links on my iPhone would open my web browser app and play through there. But with in the last one or two YouTube app updates, that has changed. So if I see a link in my web browser or email app for YouTube and I click on it. It'll open up my YouTube app and play it there.

    I personally use the Cadillac App, as I find AutoGuide too clumsy. Sure I have to deal with the shrunken screen, because it was made before the iPhone 5.

    I have had some issues with the CF app (ask sub) but I still use it. Still better than the supported app.
