There have been some discussion eleswhere on the Forums about creating a phone app for GF. Is there anyone or a group of anyones interested in giving this a go?

I for one would love to be able to see whats going on here when I'm away from my computer and think an App would go a long way in boosting membership as well!

...any takers?

Which platform? As you want to be able to use the app, do you have an Android, iOS, Blackberry, Palm, WebOS, or Windows Phone device?

What is the minimum required feature set?

Topic headers for new threads in GD?

Simple notifications of replies to subscribed threads?

Last posts of any random thread?

Since most smart phones have web browsers it would not be good to create an app that follows the entire forum, unless it is an universal vbulletin app.

We also want to keep it simple, and easy to maintain.

Well, I have an Android, but it can be adapted to the markets, no? For basics, I was thinking of it only loading up the main forums...like GD, tech, Pub, etc; From there, yougo into the sub-forums.

but maybe talk to (or wait for) FT to post, he has more know-how with this then I do and he volunteered to help out some.
