I sign in to all my Hoot suite feeds via facebook on my laptop but I can't seem to do this on my ipad. I've just upgraded to Pro too, so I'm finding it  rather frustrating.

@Vindivhan Hi there! Happy to help you out with this. The social networks should automatically sync to the iPad app for you. Can you please try logging out of the app through the settings menu and back in? 

Please  note that Facebook Groups are not supported on our mobile apps, only Pages and Profile will be displayed. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions, and I'd be happy to assist.

Hootsuite stopped working, failing to link to Twitter, then crashing on load with ios6. When i deleted and tried to reload, it, the Appstore says it is not available except in Canada. What gives???

How do I resize columns in the iPad app; I want one column to fill the screen?

I just found the "Launch Welcome Wizard" under the Settings button and re-entered correct email and it imported all my feeds correctly.

Thanks & sorry for the 2 'panic' help requests above!

additional info to #9 above...

I have the iPhone app installed under the correct email address & it is working fine. The problem with the iPad Hootsuite app is that... I could only enter 1 account for Twitter and then it would not let me add my Facebook personal & business page feeds... I get this message: "Hootsuite Permissions Notice - Team Member limit reached for this social network"

Not sure what to do and/or how to fix?

I signed up for Hootsuite under 1 email address, downloaded the Hootsuite for iPad app... entered a different email address, by mistake, and now cant change back to the correct email address!

Is there a way to start over with the iPad app so that both Hootsuite's are the same?

I'm trying to use your app for iPad, however, every time I download the app and then try logging in using the "Import" feature, the app starts and then closes out, sending me back to my iPad homepage. Any clue what's wrong? Are any other users having this same issue.

I like the app very much. On the iphone the app is very good and it updates itself when you open it up.

Sadly on the ipad it doesnt work like that. The app doesnt update itself and that's a shame, as I like to use the app on the ipad so much.

Hope an update will be out soon.

Thanks a lot for bringing Hootsuite to the iPad, it's a great release! I'm a little confused on the "import your accounts" language, though. Is it not using a true "sync" with our main Hootsuite.com account? I've already set up the app on my iPad, so if we add more accounts to Hootsuite.com, will I have to perform another import to get them on my iPad?
