    Mac Forums App?
    Hey,

    Is there a Mac Forums app?? If not, i thinkg one should be definately made. I don't think it would be too hard and I'm sure there are a lot of developers on here more than capable.

    What do you think?

    Do you reckon it would be cool to have one though? Yeah I just sign in via my iPhone but it would be cool to have the app so you just click it and youre good to go. And also the page could be scaled better to suit the screen size, I dunno....

    There's already a iPhone version of Mac-Forums, so I don't see much of a need for a specific app.

    In order to use the iPhone skin you will need to become a premium member as it is one of the perks for that program.

    We pay iNet $25 and they remove the ad from the top of the forum, and that's it? Are there any other benefits to this?

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Another possibility if you browse a lot of forums - there are forum apps that actually "slurp" the content from vB forums and display it in a more palatable format on the iPhone OS. I use one called "Forums" and it works pretty well.

    Not that I know of (not really involved in that aspect of the forums), but there has been quite a bit of chatter about adding value to the existing package. I'm hoping that will come about sooner than later.

    I also think that a lot more people would hop on the bandwagon if the price was a little lower with the feature set as is.
