    Mobile skins, Why put the extra money out there for the app when we can just use skins.

    I would like to have both.

    Having both is usually the best option. An optimized app for compatible phones and other devices, and a mobile skin that has proper features (at least access to all features in normal PC) for other web-enabled devices.

    Well my phone might need a skin, though the Internet sucks so that probably wont help.

    And all the themes work on my ipod, a app would just make it easier to use.

    Any more news on how this idea is progressing?
    I don't know how long the development process usually takes on these kinds of things.
    Just wondering if we could get an update.

    I do not have a mobile phone, so I am not familiar with exactly how apps and mobile skins work, but due to my ideology I voted for an app. That's because either way it is added functionality that (as far as I know, again, I am not an expert on mobile phones) is not trivial to create, and thus it deserves to create a revenue, if not for anything else, just to make the work hours put into it worth it. If it is easy, then going for both might be the best thing to do, but my opinion is the app is the way to go. And if I ever get a mobile phone with any functionality other than calling and receiving calls, I will definitely get the app.

    I'd love to have an app for PC, and skins wouldn't be so bad, but ideally, I'd like the app the most. It would be great to check my VMs/PMs through an app, and I wouldn't mind paying $2 for it at all.

      I like the idea of both the mobile app and the mobile skins. The mobile app would be great for those with an Android phone or iPhone. But not everyone has one of those phones, so they could simply sign in and use the mobile skin. Everyone wins!

      If you're going to do this, you should have both skins and an app. It's simply not fair to develop one (or two) apps for the iPhone and Android phone, and leave BlackBerry users out. You'd literally be favouring two mobile users over another.

      I'd say go for both apps and skins, or only skins. But only making the apps shouldn't be an option.

      How about a free trial version so we can test it out before we buy it?

      If you want to make sure every platform has an app, you could also make a Java and/or BREW app for other platforms and non-smartphones that can run those apps.

      Hmm, seriously? How are you gonna make a free version of this kind of software? You know what it is, you know what your getting. I mean what would the free version be restricted too? Only be usuable for a day, only able to view your own profile?

      Anyways, I can't wait to see what the staff have been doing with this as of late. Is there any new developments yet?

        Out of interest, would there be a possible app for Window 7 phones? I think the language is just C#, but I was just wondering is all!

        I would like both, but if I had to choose one, I'd go with the app itself.

              Idk. I chose only app but Penatrait made a good point which kinda makes me want to change my answer but I would say it would be less of a hastle to wait a whole 5 minutes before the page is done loading and the slow typing I am currently dealing with to check my grammar.. also it would help me out if at all it was easier to pick colors instead of the whole [COLOR="insert color here"] I tend to do that a lot... but enough about me the app sounds cool and all but just because android and apple are favorites doesn't mean they should have a bias in this situation..

              Personally, I would prefer a native application for mobile viewing of the site as I find that normal web pages - even if rendered for mobile use - end up having or obtaining some sort of glitch that hampers my experience on most sites. If a mobile application was made, I would certainly buy it - as long as the price is fair.

              I would like a combination of both. For iPhone owners like myself, there should be an app. This would be great for me, because I can't really use PC on my phone without being really impatient. For Android phone owners, I would think the same. For owners of phones that do not run these operating systems on their cell phones, there can be a style which can be used on their mobile phone's browser. If I had to choose between both, it would just be the skin, though, because it could be used on more phones.

              When it comes down to the internet on my phone or an app. I'd rather go with the app. Much better IMO. I voted for both and I would gladly pay

                I would go with the skins first (it looks like there already is one?) and then focus on the apps, it'd cover more of the community that way but it'd still be cool to have an app dedicated to the forum. I don't have an apple or android product myself, but I can still appreciate it :)

                    Both apps and skins
                    Some mobile devices don't support apps so I voted both.
                    I have also seen some forums using Tapatalk but I don't know if its free for forum owners or not

                      I would prefer both, it would really help as I am using an iPad, which loads like forever whenever I am on PC. Good luck on it.
