In-app notifications drop down from the top of the screen to let you know what's happening. Simply tap on the notification to instantly be taken straight to the thread.

Needs a major fix/update

Some one is asleep at the wheel. Apple updated iOS and the app keeps crashing or won’t open. System Dropped 247horns but still shows in the accounts to get messages from. Over the past 3 months app has gotten difficult to open and when it does not load all content. It was a great app app up until 3 months ago...

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We do update the app regularly to coincide with major iOS releases, as you can see from the version history. Are there particular issues you have run into with a recent iOS release?

In regards to the threads themselves, we do not moderate any content from any of the sites we support. We simply include those threads in the app. If you have an issue with a particular site, we recommend you reach out to the moderators of that site to address your concerns about content.

Hands down the best way to consume all things Longhorns Sports. All the major insider sites and message boards, perfect and customizable alerts. This app is easily dominating my iOS screen time usage in a scary way. Love it. Recommend it. Download it.
