    Android app

    I became aware of the Android app today and gave it a try. Opening it under Android 10 (the latest version) provokes a warning that it's a very old app which may no longer work properly. Ignoring this, I gave it a try and logged in. It's not very friendly to navigate, but I quickly figured out how to get to the forums. There I discovered it doesn't support the Like and Thank buttons.

    May I suggest it be withdrawn from the Play store?

    Why? It may still generate some revenue out of ads.
    I haven't downloaded it tho.

    It didn't present any ads to me in the few minutes I used it. But even if it does, lacking the buttons means that users would be admonished for failing to thank others for their help — something that isn't possible with the app.

    Re: Android app

    Yeah, unfortunately we are not able to support that app any longer, and it's not compatible with the Likes functionality. I'll see about removing it soon.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
