If you want, I'll record a video
I've been testing this for the last few hours and agree with the above comments. There appears to be a number of bugs related to single-click and click-hold, mostly affecting when Settings > Last Read Post > OFF (the click-hold bugs are still evident when Settings > Last Read Post > ON but, while this is an issue, click-hold is probably not intended to be used when the setting is ON - although it may be useful to have click-hold display the first page, which is essentially the opposite actions to when the setting is OFF). These bugs exist via either Forums or My Forums (which I sometimes refer to as the "original" forum option and "other" forum option).

When performing a single-click or click-hold on a particular thread, the following occurred:
  1. Initial and subsequent single-click goes to first page
    Clicking on the Back button goes back
  2. Initial single-click goes to first page
    Subsequent click-hold causes an intermediate screen to flash up with the spinning Loading icon and then a second screen to swipe in that goes to first page (the intermediate and second screen swap seems strange)
    Clicking on the Back button goes back to the intermediate screen with the spinning Loading icon
    Subsequent clicking on the Back button doesn't go back again
    Clicking on the Bimmerpost icon allows you to go to News, the "other" forum option, Subscriptions, Messages or Settings
    Any attemps to go back to the "original" forum results in the spinning Loading icon still being displayed
    The app must be closed and restarted to allow use of that forum option
  3. Initial and second click-hold goes to the top of the last page
    Clicking on the Back button goes back
    Third click-hold causes an intermediate screen to flash up with the spinning Loading icon and then a second screen to swipe in that goes to first page
    Clicking on the Back button goes back to the intermediate screen with the spinning Loading icon
    Clicking on the Back button doesn't go back, etc, etc
    Subsequent (after app restart) click-hold causes intermediate screen to flash up with the spinning Loading icon and then a second screen to swipe in that goes to first page, etc, etc

Other click-hold related bugs:
  1. Goes to last page of the thread instead of the last read post. Note: last read post is different to the last post.
  2. Intermittently went to the last read post from the previous visit, rather than the last read post from all visits.

TEMPORARY WORKAROUND to prevent app crashing when Settings > Last Read Post > OFF
If you click-hold and remain holding while the intermediate Loading screen displays then it actually loads the last read page of the thread but, when you release the hold, the second screen still swipes in but it displays the first page of the thread. This essentially provides two screens that have both successfully loaded content (albeit different content) so you can click on the Back button from the second screen and it goes back to the intermediate screen, which had previously (and still does) display the content, so you can click on the Back button to go back to the forum's thread listing.

If you click-hold and remain holding while the intermediate Loading screen displays then it actually loads the last read page of the thread but, when you release the hold, the second screen still swipes in and also displays the last read page of the thread. This essentially provides two screens that have both successfully loaded with the same content so you can click on the Back button from the second screen and it goes back to the intermediate screen, which had previously (and still does) display the content, so you can click on the Back button to go back to the forum's thread listing.

FURTHER WORKAROUND to prevent app crashing (only works intermittently and rarely):
While you click-hold and remain holding while the intermediate Loading screen displays, keep holding for another 7-10 seconds and the second screen will not swipe in, leaving you with just one screen having been loaded with the last page of the thread.
