iphone app?

how many people now a days have a iphone cause it can basically do anything? i know i sure do, and i have been thinking alot about a r/f iphone app. now, granted, i have no idea what needs to be done to make an iphone app, but i think it's somewhat of a good idea.

you may think it's lame, but i know i'd be happy.

I think we should just have .mobi R-F site! that way those of us stuck in the dark age with blackberry on EDGE can more easily get on...

As far as an Iphone app, not sure what it would be for considering the browser on that thing will display the full site without a problem!

Ahah clever, aren't you :D

A mobi site would be awesome. Cause safari sometimes is just too slow.

A mobile r/f needs to be done. A iPhone app doesn't, just use safari and make a bookmark of it on the iphone. Viola R/F iPhone app

I just use the Opera Mini browser on my phone - my phone is just a simpel slider - w780i - and I browse just fine, nice and fast - not even 3g or anything. The only part holding me back from posting on my phone, is that I can only do like 150 characters, which isnt long at all :-(

you guys who keep saying use safari, i dont get it, an app is much simpler to use such as using the facebook app vs safari facebook(not mobile version) or craigslist app vs craigslist safari....but just a mobile site would be awesome too...

Meh, I dont have a BB because they are trendy, I have one because it kicks a regular phone's butt. It blows away vender software(like verizon software on each of their phones). You can do alot with them as well.

I have a BB because I like it and almost everything they can do, not because they are "trendy".

To add to the topic, IMO, Opera mini does an absolutely fine job at loading RF :)
