Forum doesn't play nice on Android tablet

I am using a Samsung tab 10.1 tablet and having lots of problems browsing this forum. I get an error message that says "can't establish a secure connection" quite frequently, back arrow doesn't always work, forum frequently locks up, etc. I have tried 6 different browsers and continue to have these problems. I don't have these problems on other websites and forums. Is it just me and my tablet, or do others have these problems?"

Not a problem here with my Samsung tab 10.1. Not sure how to help. Sorry!

I think the Forest River Forums app is available on Android.

Have the exact same Samsung tablet, no problems either way - app or browser. Its probably the wi fi in the campground. They tell people the wi fi is for e-mails and checking your bills and banking - but people do one million other things on it that really bogs it down. We have actually traveled to the library to use our laptop, much better & faster!

I use a FRF Android App on my BlackBerry side loaded. Works fine, data connection sometimes on mobile makes me wait some times.

I tried the app and it worked ok, but I couldn't find where I could read "new posts" since my last visit like I can on the actual website. I also like the presentation of the website better than the app. The problem seems to come and go, but other websites work fine. Oh well, as long as I can get my daily doses of the FR forum, I will be fine.

Using a Samsung Note 8.0. The App works fine. To find the NEW posts, open up the side menu and select UNREAD. When you have read the ones you care about, click the MARK READ box at the top. The next time you go there, only the ones that have had comments since your last visit will be displayed.
