    Hello,

    I have some app dev experience on another platform. From what I have seen of the process of designing apps for android, I should be able to make an app without too much trouble.

    Someone brought up the idea of an app for this forum. If anyone else would be interested in helping witht he development of this app, let me know. Of course, we need the source code for 2.0 but we should be able to start with a previous set.

    Also, for admins: Who would I need to speak to for permissions to develop this app? The opinions and direction of the app would be highly influenced by the people running the site.

    Thats a very good idea. I thought of that. As well as a widget with a stream of new posts or something close to that.

    Any ideas from people would be great as well!

    Good idea sir! I look forward to your endeavor. Notifications would definitely be a nice feature. Going on that feature, a list of threads you're subscribing to, as well as ones that you've posted on would be great!

    Best of luck!

    LOL No kidding, Right?

    I will try to work with a 1.5 sdk and see how I can start. Making it work perfectly with 2.0 may or may not need the release of the source code.

    OK, I will do. Maybe we can set up some sort of guerrilla dev group.

    Great Idea! I think a good mobile interface for the photo gallery would be a good idea as well. I would love to help out, just don't know much about programming. We can certainly spread the word and see if we can get a small team together.

    Who else would be interested?

    Excellent I like the idea of having a group of us to help with development. Its always good to have many forms of input. Can we all get each others IM or something where we can get together online to brainstorm?

    I have been in contact with JohnDroid and he is on board with the idea.
