Instructables app behavior (Bug?) Answered

I've been using the Ibles app on an Android (V 4.3) phone for a month or two. There's a lot to like about the app experience.

For instance, the app makes it super easy to follow other users who are following your account... Super easy to click "follow" on many accounts in one session. I'm not really a social networking person, by choice, so I never paid much attention to following. Never cared about the number of followers--or hits, for that matter. I'm sure this is a breach of social networking etiquette. Guilty. 

So-- it's a pain to "mass follow" other users in the browser interface (yeah, wouldn't be problem if I'd kept current with following)--go to you:subscribers, click on the account, select follow, move backwards to the you:subscribers page, repeat ad nauseam, with all the load times associated. On the app--load the followers page, then click, click, click on the icon next to each account. Pie easy.

But there are some odd app behaviors:
One: the app Followers section doesn't sync with the normal online interface. I.E., more followers in the browser online than on the app.

Two: the last "follower" in the list doesn't display correctly. Shows as "not followed," when clicking on the user's account shows that I am indeed a follower of that account.

Maybe there's a sync lag that would explain this...if so, it last several days.

OK here's a weird thing. We recently bought an Android tablet (Nexus 7 vII), and I just now put the app on the tablet. Everything about "following" looks up-to-date on the tablet.

But not the phone. Maybe it's a memory issue with the phone (8G vs 32G)...
