Mobile device app work flow suggestions

I love that I have access to the forum via my phone, but I find that the interface lacks some key features.

  • When replying the lack of seeing the previous comments makes it difficult to follow up with a response
  • Lack of the edit option to a comment.
  • The lack of tagging (e.g.0 ['code]['/code])

These are some things that I find will be very helpful.  
Yes I know I can use the webpage, but the app is a great extension of the site and having some if not all the features list would be a great addition.

Most important to me is see the previous comments while posting your own comment.

In order of priority:
  1. Open notification links from email in the app (rather than opening the browser on my phone)
  2. Seeing previous comments
  3. Formatting toolbar
  4. Private Messages

For me I really wish it had group discussions, but I think my usage of the site is different than the average member. I spend more time in discussions. :)

I have to use Safari for Group Discussions, but it has always been this way. I have become adept at either tool.

I gave up using the app quite some time ago but I do recall one of the problems for me was the inability to change from portrait to landscape. I don't know if this remains true, but on my tablet this was really frustrating as I typically use it landscape. Even on a phone if trying to read a code block landscape orientation can be very useful.
