I frequently use my Iphone (6+) to use ATP and lately there have been some odd glitches. The one today is about the acorn icon being replace with the word new in red letters. There have been blank photos mixed in with the rest. Clicking on the photo will take you to it and its there but others on that page may be missing. The five icons on top of left column are often scrambled. Here are a couple of pics of todays glitch. Does any one else hve these little glitches? I tip my hat to you.

That's interesting. I know why that would happen and it's a technical reason that I won't go into, but it looks like a bug in the iphone's browser rendering. I may be able to find a workaround but it might be difficult since I don't have an iphone so I'd be flying blind.

One thing to try: are you zooming the page? Is it possible to not zoom and leave it at the default zoom settings?

I have an iPhone 6, not the +, and I'm not seeing any of that. I'm able to read everything perfectly from the phone.

Still not able to figure out the podcasts though Sad

I have the 6 + and I would simply reload the page. You might switch from vertical to horizontal or reverse, that will solve a lot of non-loading or strange loading issues.

Good to know it's just me. It's been happening for about a month. Not an issue elsewhere that I've been aware of. Switching from vertical to horizontal has no effect. Zooming has its own issues but resolvable..and so far all seems fine. The acorns are back. Thanks for all the pointers. I tip my hat to you.

I use an iPod Touch, basically an iPhone without the phone part, for ATP some of the time so same browser, and I set my ATP preferences to not use the mobile version of ATP because I find the desktop view works better for me. Did you do the latest ios update? I have not done it on my iPod because it messed up the auto screen rotation on my iPad (apparently I'm not alone according to discussion forums).

All updated. These quirks. I tip my hat to you. have only occurred at ATP. That's the reason I brought it up here. It's a sporadic and realatively new phenomenon. All is is as it should be today. Fortunately it wasn't anything major just perplexing. I tip my hat to you.
