Following closely on the heels of yesterday's big desktop update, this morning the Lottery Post mobile website/app got a big update too!

For clarity sake, all of the remaining comments below pertain to the mobile website/app, so these are comments directed at using Lottery Post on a mobile phone. Also, the links are intended to be tapped on a mobile phone. If you click them on a computer, you will just see the normal desktop pages.

The biggest new feature is the addition of a new Active Topics page, which shows you all the forum threads that have new posts since your last visit.  It works exactly like the Active Topics page that has been on the desktop website for many years.

To see the Active Topics page, you can either go to the main Forums page, and you will see a new Active Topics button right at the top.  Or, you can tap the "three bars" icon in the upper-left corner of the screen, and Active Topics will be a new menu item indented under the Forums item.

If you ever want to see when the system believes your last visit was, you can now see it displayed at the bottom of the Member slide-out menu, which you can see by tapping the Member icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.

That last visit date is also now used to highlight new forum posts since your last visit.  In the forums, threads with new posts are now shown in a different color, distinguishing them from posts that have not changed since your last visit.

Also, any thread with new posts now includes a button at the top for navigating to the first unread post.

Another new page in the mobile website/app shows how to whitelist in your ad blocker.  Unfortunately, ad blockers in mobile phones are somewhat more complicated to configure properly than they are on desktop browsers, so this new guide is important for any non-technical users to figure out how to prevent ad blockers from interfering with Lottery Post on your phone.

In addition to the new features, this update includes lots of general improvements, bug fixes, and performance improvements.

To be sure you are viewing the latest Lottery Post mobile website/app updates, open the Member slide-out menu by tapping the Member icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, and then tap the Reload App item.

As always, feedback, questions, etc. are welcome here.
