    I have to say, the functionality of this app is AMAZING. it literally puts EVERYTHING two taps away fromy our home screen!!

    Anyways, the app is functioning properly by showing up to date info about statements, charges on credit cards, ebay account changes, ect.. The oNLY issue is that the accounts are not linking to the account website. On the online version, you can view your account details, and if you want, you can click the account name and it will bring you to that account's website. It is SUPPOSED to work the same on the iphone, i just havent been able to get it to open the browser.

    has anyone had issues like this? I contacted support 4 days ago, still nothing.

    I think it's read only on the iPhone for security reasons.

    Only through the main website will it auto log you into the real account sites.

    If the phone is lost, and it wasn't set for a password, you can even go to the online site and block any access from mobile devices so anyone can't just pick it up and see your info.

    umm.i dont THINK you are correct. I know it wont connect you directly to your account without having to put in your password, but that would COMPLETELY make the use for myspace, ups tracking, and photobuck USELESS... I hope thats not that case.

    I mean, when i tap on what SHOULD be a link, it underlines like it is SUPPOSED to open a browser, but it doesnt/

    i dont see how it would be a security list to just link you to the url (not your actual account)

    I don't have those type of accounts setup. But did it say anywhere that it will link you out of the app, or is just a misleading UI choice that looks like a link? I tried to find some info, so I may be wrong.

    Some accounts I"m sure will have people thinking why bother with them in Pageonce for the iPhone because of the usless information they show.

    Try out the forum at pageonce, or send them an e-mail.

    i already sent them an email and posted on the forum, still not answer.. so i figured i would ask here.

    I guess it didnt ACTUALLY say it will link you to it, but it would almost be NESSECARY to do so for some of the accounts they give you AND it does it from the online version..

    Maybe that will be an option in an update, which is why the links LOOK clickable??

    I woudl just like to know if anyone ELSE has one, if they can link to their account outside the app.. its a REALLY awesome app, but i'm DYING to get this direct linking work, otherwise its not NEARLY as cool!

    I have Pageonce and I have my Photobucket account linked to it but I can not link directly from my Touch to the Photobucket account from the Pageonce page. Is this the same thing that you are experiencing?

    It shows the albums in my Photobucket account but when I click on them nothing happens.

    yep.. that is the EXACT same thing i am experiencing.. the photobucket (and all other accounts) do not link to the website.. who needs to see the names of their photobuck albums.. you want to see the PICTURES!
