    The mobile version and desktop version don't communicate as to what is my last read post in a thread. So, if I've read to post 365 on the desktop machine, but last time I logged in with the mobile I was as post 357, it loads to 358 as the newest unread post, not to 366. Do they get that info from a cookie stored locally on my machine, or is it linked to your database on my member logins? Is there a way to have the info be device neutral, so I always go to the latest unread post whatever device I use to log in?

    The read data should be device agnostic and is based on your login information and stored on our server, not your cookies.

    Let me see if I can figure out what might be going on. I have heard reports that the read data on mobile isn't functioning properly, so that might be a bug the techs are working on.
