    Regarding forum on mobile

    Was wondering if James, or whoever is in charge, would consider applying the Tapatalk - Forum App on the iPhone, Android, webOS, Windows Phone 7 (WP7), Nokia, and BlackBerry for vBulletin, phpBB, IPBoard, SMF and more plugin (go to site and see) so people can browse the forum on the tapatalk app which is available to mobile users on many platforms. I use it for some other forums I visit and it's quite good.

    I use tapatalk to browse other forums, and it's an awesome app. Would be great to get CW working with it actually. Right now I just use the browser on the iphone, which works fine, but it's not as great as tapatalk.

    What's good about this app? (Not being sarcastic, genuine question)

    Makes it much easier than a browser to go through forums, make edits...it's designed for the smartphone so it's much more readable and it gets rids of all the crap that you don't want on a small screen so no zooming in/out...etc. You can have it ignore signatures/profile pics to make it faster to read through threads and posts. And zooming in and out is a pain on the browser, because you have to do it constantly. Replying, quoting, and performing other functions (I think you can do all the mod functions too) is also easier than in a browser.

    It makes the site really accessible if you browse the forum on your phone. I think it's free and simple to implement too. The app itself costs 2.99 IIRC for users.

    So the solution to all problems on CW should just be to charge 3 clams to post?


    On a serious note, I wonder what % of CW users are mobile browsers? I wonder if James has stats for that.

    Thanks for the suggestion Ikki

    This application seems to have major security issues though that people are talking about on other forums and that's happening today. So it doesn't sound like the best bet to install it on CW. At least for the moment anyway. I'll look a bit more into it.

    Edit - I was reading the date wrong on another forum where they're talking about security flaws, it was 08/03/2010! Not 08/03/2011!
