We are currently in the research stage of developing an app for the forum. This would be an actual app that you download from Apple's App Store, or Google's Play Store.

  • The app would have a light and dark mode based on your phone's settings
  • Infinite scroll, meaning no pages to click through.
  • push notifications
  • fingerprint/face recognition login option
  • thread previews (without having to click on the thread)
  • Haptics (phone movements/gestures for specific features)
  • upload images very easily from your phone
  • easily switch from app to web view for any forum features not available via the app.
Still working to find out all the features we would be able to have. My hope is that we could bring in additional users as so many prefer apps now.

The videos below are from the developer. This is still a work in progress, though getting close to being ready to go public, at which point, there would have to be further development specific to our forum.

I'd be up for easier uploading images from your phone. Its currently less then ideal.

This again?

@Mike you have the memory of a goldfish.

Maybe a salmon.

Not "this again". This would be an app developed specifically for this forum, nothing like the tapatalk fiasco which burned thousands of forum owners.

Apps are short lived unless they're instantly huge hits as with things like Snapchat, and Tik Tok and whatever.

I was just thinking the same thing.

What's this the third time there was an app for the forum? 🤣
No, it would be the 2nd.

the first one had quite a bit of popularity and I would have like to have kept it, but the company changed the game and started harvesting our content for their personal gain on top of charging us. Thousands of communities were burned by them, very large communities as well.

I kinda wish there was an that worked well. Really not digging the new browser setup on the phone.
