I have some problems with "reply to thread" and "post new thread anywhere", and "new conversation". 1. No possibility to mention people 2. Very limited heigh in the text field. 3. The node filter search only for nodes that start with that search keyword 4. No autocomplete for nickname in new conversation
And as you can see, it doesn't recognize new lines.

I don't honestly see why an "app" is even needed.
The admin can hide some parts of the "desktop" view from mobile and it's very easy to comment on threads with no app.

..also the whole brandname that I think I brought up last time


good luck though

The biggest benefit to an app is this. Facebook has made people stupid and lazy. This is why facebook groups are taking so many members away from forums. Try starting a new forum now, it's rough as hell.

An app loaded on a phone puts forum notifications right on the front of the phone, just like facebook does. It makes it easy to post pics, to reply, to start new threads. Doesn't matter that a website is responsive. They dont want to have to go looking for it online and don't want to have to sign in because, ew, that's like, so 2015... I might break a nail.

Forum apps are the future. Or, forums will die. Seriously, I think that there will be more money in forum app creation and management then there is in forum theme development and sales.

Xenforo, VB, IPS better figure this out soon. Facebook groups are eating alot of forums alive right now. Doesn't matter that fb groups are just one stupid thread. They already have the app on their phones and it just so easy to post.

Anyone who doesn't see this is gonna lose their forum over the next three years. I'm not joking.

With Apple's recent changes, everyone has to have their own app store account now, closing that issue.

An update is coming (especially affecting Android) next week :)

Not bad at all, although some additional customization wouldn't be bad !
