Making an app is expensive and a lot of work, so it won't be happening in the foreseeable future. The mobile version of the site will be getting a massive upgrade next year (along with the rest of the site), and it's possible that we may possibly also add some extra features that make the site provide an even more native-like experience. Those extra things haven't been confirmed and rely on some other changes that are not at all certain, so I'm not in a position to discuss what they are at this time though.

There isn't any official app. There's TapaTalk which is the ad you see while accessing mobile site. And there's unofficial android app which is basicly YT listing and link to forums and maybe to twitter.

They aren't programmers so they would need to buy that as service from someone else. Also support for that would need to be official and they don't have enough personel for that. So currently anything official is under ice. You are free the develope (or contact oodBytes if you have skills) your own, unofficial one.

 

For forum use, you can either use mobile theme or TapaTalk. For videos, either Vessel mobile or YT mobile.

App development requires a lot of time, effort and money. That's not to say that it will never happen, but it isn't high on our priorities at the moment.

The mobile version of the site works well enough in my experience, and if you want a more native experience, we do support tapatalk.

Unfortunately, IPB4 does not have a built in API :(

However, that's not to say that there won't be an API for the forum, just that it won't be built in (that's also not to say that there will be one, though it's certainly something I am planning to look into).

 

An app takes a lot of work, and it wouldn't add a huge amount. The mobile version of the forum will be improved significantly later in the year, hopefully making an app redundant.

There is currently no app in development with forum integration (and I don't know about apps without forum integration), but it's not impossible that one will be developed at some point.

When we update to the next version of the forum software later this year, the mobile version of the site will be massively updated to match the functionality of the full site. @Syntaxvgm the front page is being worked on, just that the work is being done behind the scenes. It will be released at some point this year (hopefully).

As for an app, all I know for certain at the moment is that LinusMediaGroup are aware of the growing need to develop an app.

Maybe...

As far as I know, it is being looked into, but I don't know any more than that (so please don't ask).

There is at least one unofficial one. There isn't going to be official one. Reason: They would need to hire coder to do it. So everybody begging for official app should ask themselves this question: Which is more important to you, browse forums/youtube through official app and maybe get notifications with it, OR get good quality tech video every day?

There is an unofficial one and there is taptalk, but there are currently no plans that I am aware of to implement an official android app for several reasons - there is no solid back end API to use to retrieve the data and make new posts, it is a lot of time and effort to make an app, the usage would be limited and probably not worth it, and any changes that are made now would have to be remade in a few months time when the forum software is updated to IPB4.

Also, in future if you want to suggest a new forum feature, the best place to post it, where it will be guaranteed to be viewed by a moderator or admin, is in the Forum Suggestions thread.

So... you want app to browse forums rather than daily videos? Maybe some extra features rather than even coverage? They are media producing company, not software developers.

I honestly don't know how many times this has been posted. We have no plans to develop an app for Android, iOS, WP8 or BB. We do however offer Tapatalk support as well as the IPB Mobile theme.

For the 27th time, there is no plan t the moment to develop a mobile solution. We currently offer the IPB mobile theme and may possibly implement the use of Tapatalk.

Please use the search tool next time.

This has been suggested time and time again. At the moment there is no plan to make a dedicated app for the forum how be we may utilise Tapatalk. For the moment though we use the stock mobile theme.

This thread has come up dozens of times. For the moment we're using the stock IPB mobile theme. We may implement the use of Tapatalk as well however there are currently no plans to make an app.

There's about a dozen threads on this already. Currently we offer the stock IPB mobile forum for smart phones and are looking at implementing the use of Tapatalk. I highly doubt we will ever roll out a full mobile app as there is no need for one.

There is currently the default mobile theme running which is okay but not ideal. There has been talk of implementing Tapatalk however nothing is confirmed.
