With this release, the on-page toolbar has been moved into the Android title bar, the on-page Quick Reply box has been replaced with a native quick reply box, and the on-page Pagination controls have been replaced with the familiar pagination controls from the old tapatalk based Discussions/RPF apps. The native Quick Reply and Pagination controls should adopt the custom theme colors that the user has set on the site.
The next step (when I get around to it) will be to move the post inline tools (like Edit Post, Delete Post, Hide Post, Quote Post) into a native popup menu that appears when long-pressing on a post, in the same manner that the old tapatalk based Discussions/RPF apps worked. The mail/private messaging interfaces while in the legacy wrapper also need quite a bit of work.
The ultimate goal here is a complete and fully functional/usable hybrid where all of the user controls and functions are handled in a native way, but all of the rendering is done in the WebView, which will give the app the full range of BB Code support that the website has, since a lot of what the site offers is not easy to reproduce using native platform widgets.
Speaking of BB Code, a lot has been added recently, so be sure to check out the reference to see what has changed:
