I had a look in the Playstore but couldn't find anything.
 
A couple of good ones I use are Mobile Kiwi and Android central..

No, there isn't. We have an API but haven't expanded it to allow R/W, only reading. I tested a couple of apps using the API and they were pretty good. The devs didn't want to release them though.

Toyed with the idea of using Tapatalk too, which would be the likely way to go.

Why no release? Even just to get around text flow an app would be awesome.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Tapatalk is great and would be good for this site as using website is quite hard if you want to post

Was a shame the app went nowhere. I just use the full site on my phone, but as jeffnz said, it's very hard to post.

Curious to know what's wrong with using the Chrome browser? I use that on my Nexus5 and IE on my WP8 and not sure how much extra value an app ads. What am I missing?

have you used tapatalk Nathan? it can have all your forums in one app and makes reading updates to followed threads very easy.

I use the full site and find it quite ok to post on from my E7. The full physical keyboard helps.

I'm sure that helps but few mobile phones have physical keyboards anymore. With tapatalk its just easy to read and post with mobile website I'm having to enlarge to find threads of interest which you don't with tapatalk as its designed specifically for forums.
