    Hi All,

    I can't login to this forum with the Android app on either my phone or tablet. The fact I can use the web interface confirms my account credentials are correct...

    All I get is 'Network error, please try again later (login)'. As I've tried using my mobile network and home broadband with the same result it looks like it's the server end at fault. Is it just me?

    Thanks,

    Shiba.

    I have exactly the same issue. I tried to uninstall and reinstall several times but not luck.

    If anyone has any luck let us know. I'm using Android Marshmallow (6.0.1)

    Occasionally I get the same error so I just leave it for a few hours or sometimes a day and it comes right and let's me back on.

    Try to connect to network with proxy or vpn. It must be some glitches. But anyway I often use proxy server just to keep my data secure. I think it's a must have tool.

    That's fixed it... Exactly the same software version, network etc. Looks to me like some of the cached data isn't compatible with the newer version of the app.

    It's simpler to use a browser than the forum app, since I uninstalled it I have no problems.

    I use the Chrome browser with no problem login in, or any other annoying glitches the app has.
