Their search function (website and app) has always had issues. The app certainly works better overall - at least now I can type a PM without the letters disappearing), although I've not tried searching on it yet.
I only use my phone for BP
I never use the app it is bad
I use the regular website on my phone. Much better IMO
New app needs A LOT of work. It’s a good start. I hate how hard it is to find the end of a post and the beginning of the reply to that post. Sucks. Also the keyword alerts don’t give you any information about what’s in the post other then the keyword itself, so you have to click though just to see if it’s really pertinent to me or not.
I only use the app for reading thru the forums. Thats only because thats all i can on it. It needs a lot work. I Love BP though.
Yes they almost need some recommendations/enhancements from the BP community to make it better. I will just have to stick with the web version for searching like @Michael Plante
I need to start by saying that I love BP, but the forum software leaves a LOT to be developed. I am not sure of the exact structure but I am sure that a lot of the search functionality can be redone. I find it very difficult to navigate and to search for the information I am looking for. This site is FULL of useful data, and having a great search functionality and a little time spend on the flow of the software would be really welcomed.
As a member of BP for more than a decade I’ve seen a steady growth towards a single thing. To help investors.
I bet there isn’t a person who has criticized BP who have walked in the footsteps of a web based business.
I can say with a lot of experience that the web and technology changes so fast and dramatically that it is difficult to see the end game and solve for all of the issue which arise along the way.
I bet josh has an easy million or two invested in BP. I would hope we give him credit for creating a home we can go and help and learn.
For myself I’m extremely greatful.
Everyone has a choice. You don’t have to use it.
I for one appreciate BP.

As suggested above, I would be one of those people you believe don’t exist. I’ve made similar mistakes, all because I was an amateur acting like a seasoned pro. Smaller scale so the consequences were less obvious to fewer people.
The content is appreciated. The delivery is a hindrance to gAINING benefit from the content.
Example, that capitalizing right there which was absolutely preventable with beta testing. Whoever approved the app in its current state shouldn’t be handling anything having to do with technology, regardless of how fast or slow it changes.
Good to meet you.
Just curios have you spent a million or so building something?
I’m a firm believe in the foot step. If you’re unwilling to walk in them don’t critique or criticize those who are. And if you have then it’s ego and arrogance that allows you too
After all you could show your skill set and build your own.
very good. I for one appreciate BP. Good house hunting.
BP gonna algorithmly BLOCK yall! :))
I don't use my phone for anything other than calling people don't understand why anyone would want to look at a tiny screen.. and don't under stand why anyone cares 90% of you who are complaining are using the service for free.. so whats the big deal..
Well I don't use the app to search and post, I do it on a desktop 90%. What I do like about the new app is the podcast update. It is a lot easier to find and listen to. I gave up on the app last winter because it was difficult to find the podcast and pickup where I left off. Recently revisited the app and definite improvement (even if this wasn't a recent improvement with the last update). Great job BP in this area!
In future updates I would like the podcast to automatically move to the next oldest podcast, because it is hard to scroll to say Podcast 179 while driving. Just a safety update to us commuters who listen while driving. Keep up the good work!
