All we get is a small grey "new" next to the reply count. This is really easy to miss. Any chance of getting the title in bold as well?
When you use the new thread icon on the bottom icon bar, it pops up a fixed size frame. Then tap into the title field. The keyboard appears and pushes the fixed size popup up the screen. The title field disappears off of the top of the screen. It's still editable but you can't see it which makes correcting mistakes tricky.
