Placemarker. Build 11 has been released to all testers. Replies after this one should be related to build 11 only. We've addressed everything before this (or passed on some suggestions). Nick Wilder

Just installed build 11. I know it's been mentioned earlier, but I'm finding the image scrolling feature to still be quite sensitive, making it hard to just move 1 picture at a time as it tends to go 2-3 pics at a time. If I keep my finger on the picture through the whole scroll it generally works alright though.

Also as a suggestion feature-wise, I'd love to see the option for "Best routes for YOU in this area" for areas and would be a nice addition in my opinion. Keep up the good work!

Had a force close on the new version (build 11) while attempting to download 2 areas (which had download errors when attempted from the areas screen) simultaneously from the home screen.

I am facing an issue with phone storage space, would love to see a way to move areas or the entire app to SD Card.

Also, when I tried to remove an area to clear up space it says "The application Mountain Project has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

I get the same error when trying to delete an area. Here is the logcat from my HTC Thunderbolt (Android 2.3.4):

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble deleting areas.

One other issue: It appears that the imbedded area (Teton Natl Park) is downloaded without required updates. You have to update it manually, which isn't a huge deal but would be nice to correct. The first time I tried to open it after updating, I got a "Force Close" error. I tried to open it again and it came up fine.

Other than those two issues, I've found great functionality so far. I have been super impressed with the app.

ETA: On my phone, there seems to be no option for moving the app to my SD card. Even going into the app manager and the system settings, I can't get the phone to move it over.

Installed build 11 yesterday and have a major issue which has lead me to uninstall.
I had the same problem with a previous build (8), and didn't try with 9 or 10, sorry, but I assume these build would all not work with my phone. Makes me think it's a problem with my operating system and compatibility.
The app runs fine after install but when I try to download an area it stalls out at some point and then will say a 'process failed' and ask me to force close it. Makes the app not so usable but the bigger problem: with this app installed all other apps and even basic phone functions will begin to get these 'process failed' errors and force close. Uninstalling the MP app fixes this.
I'm running Cyanogen Mod, android 2.3.7 on a Samsung Galaxy/Fascinate. I don't have these errors normally. I'd be happy to provide more info if you guys are insterested, pm will get the quickest response from me.

Just installed build 11. Samsung Stratosphere, running android 2.3.5.

When reading a long page (e.g. a page with 60 comments on a route), flipping my phone sideways from landscape to portrait or vice versa takes me all the way back to the top of the page, which can be quite frustrating. My samsung stratosphere has a slide out keyboard and opening or closing it, while keeping the phone in landscape also does this.

Also it doesn't appear to be possible to zoom in on pictures that I've downloaded. I'm not sure if this is just me, but it seems like a bit of a waste to download photos in full resolution and not be able to zoom in, especially since most people only have 4ish inch screens.

Awesome app!

I'm not able to move the app to my SD card. When I go to settings, and then applications, and click on the mountain project app, move to SD card is grayed out. Is there another way to do this? Christina kalb

Also force closing on my Droid 2, when deleting an area. Must be an issue for all phones from the sound of it.

Another UX suggestion for the "You and This Route" / ticking. Keep more of the items on one page (or the main route page) to minimize clicking and opening new windows.

Also can't delete from your To-do list. (this is only under Personal Page -> My Todos

Maybe under the Classic Routes for a general Area, have smaller text that says where it's located, like on the original MP page. Link to that area's page too would be cool.

Ability to PM users/view user profiles too maybe? This would probably be most useful to implement on the mobile forum page first

Same issue as reported above - Force Close when trying to delete an area. This is build 11 on a Motorola Droid 3, Android ver 2.3.4. If I try to restart the application and access any area I'll either get a the message "an error occured while accessing the datastore" or another Force Close. Only solution is to uninstall and reinstall the app.

Requests for future versions:
Ability to install on mnt/sdcard-ext instead of mnt/sdcard (on many Motorola models the latter is actually internal storage)
Ability to download sub-areas (so that I don't to have to download all 60MB of Boulder area climbs if I just want info on Eldo's west ridge, say)
Ability to preview areas before downloading (e.g. a link to the web site)
Identify which of the thumbnail images are beta photos

I wasn't sure if I should post this here in the beta section, or in the app general section, but since I'm using the beta I figured it should go here:

This is minor, but when routes are listed with their star ratings it would be nice if there were empty stars. E.g. for a 3 star route, have 3 filled stars and one empty star.

Much more importantly, there should be sorting options. Quick, easy functions to sort the areas alphabetically or by state. Also, options to sort routes in an area by name, or by rating, or by difficulty with a single click would go a long way toward improving this app's usability.

My phone has been doing a lot of random reboots lately, normally only once a week or less... But lately once a day or more. Not sure if it's related, but mp it's the only app I've installed our updated in the past month... And my usage patterns haven't really changed. Joseph Stover

Same issue with unable to delete area. After trying to delete an area and it fails to delete you can not open or redownload the area. Only way I found to fix this was to erase all application data in the MP app settings. At this point you have to redownload all areas.

contrary to a number of people on this forum I have had no issues with trying to delete an area. My phone is an LG myTouch 4G with build 11 installed. the deleting process is slow but I have not had it freeze my phone or give me a foce close window. The previous issue I posted about has been taken care of with this new build and I have found no other bugs, the app seems great to me. Kristen Rowe

When I have both data and wifi enabled and connected, the data downloads often fail, and when restarting the download by tapping, the app force closed. I'm on a Droid Incredible running CM7, Verizon.

Also, when viewing pictures, scrolling to the next picture often overscrolls and takes me two or three pictures over. I think it would be better with less sensitivity or no scroll through, just go one picture at a time.

I found on this route page for Nendo Dango that the app truncates text in and after an http URL that is followed by a MountainProject ID URL. To explain, in the first sentence of the description there's an http URL to a wikipedia page for "Las Conchas Fire". Later in the same sentence is a MP ID URL for a neighboring route. In a web browser this all looks fine but in the app, the description looks like this:

Established a little over a week prior to the devastating Chocolate Chicken Pot Pie

I'm using build 11 and haven't looked for other instances of this same situation so it may not be a widespread issue.

I LOVE IT! Such a great app, the only problem I've had is it doesn't transfer my tuck list or ratings to my account Emma Hanks

First, I really like the look and feel of the app.

I played extensively with it and tried to break it. Downloading a bunch of areas at once, I got three states with no problems. When repeating this later with more areas, the database kinda got stuck though while deleting an area. It never finished. I had to delete all application data through google play store, then download it again.

I noticed that when extracting images, the kilobyte counter goes to about 110% of the max.

When I start an update from the Updates screen and it fails (for whatever reason), I can hit retry on the home screen, although the home screen does not offer downloading the update initially. Not sure if that is intended behavior.

And the feature I'm missing the most is the ability to rate routes. Stars and ticks are there, but rating? Please add that.

I can see though why I can't comment from the app (although something like a personal note for something like: "Add comment later to mention missing bolt." might be nice).

And if there was an option to disable the "Confirm Download" dialogs, that would be nice, too. Maybe a separate disable for wifi/data connection. Although that would require an options page, which the app doesn't have! Pretty cool that it gets away without it.
