Start page in Android app
Could there be a way to choose the startup page, particularly starting on the homepage? Rather than having to close the information pop-in box at the bottom of the start page in order to reveal the home icon in the lower-right, which then brings you to the homepage. Thank you for a wonderful app.
Hi @kevahola, thanks for your message! It seems that the synchronization between Start-up location (can only be set in desktop Settings) and Homepage (in the app) is not working as it should. It might be some error so we will investigate it further. ~ Marie

- "Hi there, I need manual setting of my home location in the android app. Please bring it back - I don't want to waste battery power on GPS usage, and I don't want to use IP address, since that is soooooo unreliable, when using mobile data or even fixed wifi.
When I switch on the app, I want to see a location that I manually set. If I want to see where I am, I need to turn on GPS of course and enable location access. I have already added my location as favourite, but it's just not it. Since I always need to go to favourites and select it. I also replied on the topic you sent link for." (July 2, 2018)

I was redirected here by someone from your official Facebook site. I am replying here to let you know this either hasn't been solved or it is a new issue.
I can't manually set my home location. I don't want to use GPS, since it is draining my battery and the IP address location is useless, since either on wifi or on mobile data, it always uses way different location, than where I am currently.
Please add an option to set my own home page and start page (or if they are the same, either way manual setting for this is necessary).
