    i think someone needs to make a droidforums.net app to keep up to date with these forums! it'd be so much easier...

    whose with me?

    Im cool with just going on the web browser. I dont really see a need for an app.

    x2, but I'd use an app if there was one.

    Wouldn't an app essentially be the same as a bookmark? I know other forums have them but I don't see them being tremendously necessary. Then again I find most apps unnecessary so one more couldn't hurt, I suppose.:)

    tapatalk is no longer reliant on their servers and works great, I have it installed on a few of my forums and it works good and the members love it.

    If you want to test it out, look at my sig, the Ducati, & suzuki sites both have it installed. You can get a free tapatalk app in the market to test with... you can't reply though unless you purchase the full version.

    What would the app do? Be like an rss feed for the threads?

    I find the mobile version of the Droid Forums site to be really nice. I prefer the setup of the Crackberry mobile site, but I don't have issues viewing or posting from DF mobile either.

    develop one. Then charge $.99. You might potentially make $35,000 if everybody "donates".:icon_eek:

    Tapatalk looks and sounds amazing. So we just need to get the forum admin here to activate the service or is it already active for these forums? I would definitely pick up this app!

    Tapa talk is already 3 bucks, think the df will have to be free unless it adds its own version of tapatalk.

    It's free to setup your forums. I did it for my personal forum I run and it was maybe 2 minutes of work to configure. That was with phpBB bulletin, vBulletin (this site) may be different, more difficult.

    WOW! I didn't know this app existed. There's a gun forum that gives my droid's browser a lot of trouble. Even if it only works for that one forum, I'm still impressed. I've already replied to threads using tapatalk. Thanks for the link!!!

    The mobile version of the site would be fine if it wasn't missing advanced search.
