I've been using the app for some time on my Android. Last weekend all pics on here show as a broken link and cannot view.
What am I doing wrong?
There's no setting to enable pics
Found the solution.
I went through my phone's app manager and turned off permissions I felt not needed.
It creates too much traffic these apps sending a lot of your activity so they can use the info or sell.
That's why most apps are "free", nothing is free!
I turned the permission for STORAGE back on the RF app and the pics previews and viewing now work.
I get a lot of pictures on this site where the thumbnail shows but the larger version doesn't work.

I wonder if your experience was related to the amazon server downtime - you might turn that permission back off and see if it was maybe a coincidence.
