Android/iphone Ranger-Forum app

I'll start this with a question, but if this already exsists my apologies.

Is there an Android or Ipohone app made for ranger-forums? I think it be sweet to have an app like this so those of us who like to be on this site can be on it even more.

Let me know if anyone has started to develope something for it.
I just got the samsung moment and it has the Google operating system on it, same as the droid by motorola. Looking through the apps i think it be cool to try and make one for ranger-forums.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think and if this has already been done or is in the works.

Thanks

i would like to add, that that app i would be down for... from my iphone, this site is not very mobile friendly... lots of little buttons... i've unsubscribed from countless threads by accident, when trying to read the most recent page... so if one were to become available, i would download it in an instant... i use this site on my phone almost daily, when shopping for parts or such

mm.. ok, I definatly need to do way more research on this, especially because I know nothing of tapatalk. I get technology pretty easy and work in the I.T. department at my college.

Any other insight? Im going to start doing some research on what it would take to get this going and what it might look like. Has a lot of potential i think!

I can view this as well from the browser on my phone, i just think an app in some cases may be a little easier if its built right.

Yeah this site actually works well in the mobile browser due to the avatar size change. Tapatalk rocks though, makes forum viewing so much more stream lined on mobile devices.

No one has said theres a issue with viewing the forum on mobile browser. This thread was if there was an app for viewing it better/easier.

haha, thanks for the clerification 04blackedge.
Well, if this site is not tapatalk ready, i suppose its kinda pointless to try and make an app then. Im still going to do research though and see what can be done.

I feel as though i need to contribute something to this forums, seeing as I have been a member for a number of years, and this seemed like a pretty cool idea.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. I might talk to Beard and see what he thinks or can do about this tapatalk thing on this forum.

THanks guys!

there is a mobile site for contributors that works pretty damn good. My guess is that it beat out tapatalk.
