App won't work whilst connected to WiFi. Page 1 of 1    
Hi, I've searched high and low, for a solution, all to no avail. My problem is simply that, when I have my Samsung phone connected to WiFi, the app doesn't work correctly. It takes ages to show profiles and messages. Turn the WiFi off, and it works like lightning.. I've tried disabling the ipv6 setting on the router. The app functions fine, if I turn aeroplane mode on, and then turn the WiFi on. Obviously, this is an impractical solution, as I'm unable to use my phone for calls or for messages, etc... Whilst it is in this mode. Please, please can someone tell me how to remedy this? It's driving me nuts. I dread opening the app when I'm home. My provider is Plusnet. All my other apps ie, Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, function perfectly fine. It's solely the PoF app, that becomes so slow, its intolerable.

Have you tried removing the app and re-downloading it? Sometimes that can work.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Yea, I've tried that already... I completely cleared the data, cache, uninstalled, reinstalled.. It's just stayed the same. It'll be some stupid setting, on the phone, app or router. It's beyond irritating now.

Just an update. I've tried using the mobile site, via the chrome browser. I'm having the same issue. The profiles, who's viewed me, my messages, etc... All take ages to load, as with the app.

I don't think anyone maintains this site any more so it's unlikely anything will get fixed. Hopefully your next phone update will fix the issue, i think they update fairly regular so you might not have a long wait.

I like your profile, it's fun.

Make sure your Wi-Fi configurations is connected Automatic and not to BootP.

It happens to me too. Often works only when using data, as opposed to WI-fi.
