When I tap the favorite star in the android app for a question I asked, the question is not favorited. Instead a red banner appears at the top that says "Question not favorited." Is this a known bug?

I'm running version 1.0.6 of the app

UPDATE: Alternatively, when favoriting a question I did not ask, I get the following message

The account associated with the access_token does not have a user on the site

The above message occurs with version 1.0.73 of the app.

  • Are you logged in on the site you wanted to favorite the question? Try doing an action that will make you logged in first (e.g. add comment, vote)? – Meta Andrew T. Oct 30 '15 at 4:44
  • I deliberately logged out, then in, before favoriting. Does that count? – MonaLisaOverdrive Oct 30 '15 at 11:28
  • That... Should fix the issue... Because I can't repro this on v1.0.73 (I'd say device is irrelevant since it's about API call) – Meta Andrew T. Oct 30 '15 at 11:34
  • I log in using my Google account, if that helps. Also favoriting on the site, within the mobile Chrome browser, works. – MonaLisaOverdrive Oct 30 '15 at 12:56
  • After a) re-flashing my device several times due to an unrelated issue, b) rooting said device and c) logging back into the app (using my Google login) I was able to favorite a question. I'm not adding this process as an answer for obvious reasons, however I am running version 1.0.75 of the app...which may be the fix – MonaLisaOverdrive Nov 27 '15 at 23:25
  • OTOH, this exakt same behavior appeared in Version 1.0.85 on Android 5.0.2 . – guntbert Apr 20 '16 at 19:10
