problem using instructables on tablet and cell phone

 Hi ,
       Im having a problem using the instructables app and web page on my cell and tablet. Once i sign in  and go to the top right corner and click my picture for the drop down to go to my page of instructables or anything actually , It clicks on the   Tech shop tab instead like it by passes or doesnt see  the drop down choices ?

It's a known issue, which HQ are, presumably working on.

Hi Kiteman
I was searching for a better faster web browser for my android phone . I was using the dolphin browser and i wasnt to impressed. So i did a search and came up with a browser called "opera mini " browser. Has great reviews and says its fast so i downloaded it and yes it is very fast and it recognizes the drop down tab on instructables . It works great .... give it a try .... Jim
(Typing in Opera Mini)

So it does!

Unfortunately, the flag buttons don't seem to work in this browser...

hhmmmmm im on it now. seems to work on the flags for me ... So what do you think about the web browsing speed? fast eh??
A bit too fast, actually - hitting the You button, it reacts so fast that I'm at my You page before the drop-down menu appears.

Now i know that thats not a real complaint now is it ?? I cant believe the difference between the regular google search and this browser. what a difference.... I noticed the same thing on my laptop when i switched from using internet explorer to firefox..
Cool, thanks.

I have had the same problem, especially on my daughter's iPad. I hope Kiteman is correct. I did get the new app for my iPhone. I was hoping to be able to navigate and respond to posts in the Community section, but cannot find a way to get to anything other than normal Instructables.

ok well last night it worked on my phone and tablet. but now i see that the 2 tabs for tech shop and handyman are gone which was the initial problem because it would go to them when you click on your page but now it doesnt see the drop down when you click on it ... HHHHmmmmmm
