    All new threads automatically get bumped up on the list. Or threads with most recent comments. Makes it easy to follow a thread without having to subscribe and get an email everytime someone responds. There's also a simple tab that shows threads you've participated in. Just keeps it nice and streamlined and you don't have to jump in and out of subforums.


    That happens in a regular web browser too. The only advantage I'd see is if it automatically displayed the font a little larger, without having to pull it wider to read easier.

    Black market?


    I got it for free also last year, when it was the free Amazon app of the day.

    It does, and it's black type on white screen. This blue is nice on the desktop, not so much on the phone!

    Feel the same about movies & music? :stirthepot:


    I buy most music & movies I like, thanks. Many of them I sample in a not-exactly-legal way beforehand, but I still regularly buy.

    It is not merely the way it resizes the forums. It's the way it organizes everything to make forum usage much smoother and easier.

  • Just piling on here, but yes, totally worth it, even if you don't use it often. I don't use it more than once or twice a week and I am glad to have it.
