Technically there is an iPhone/iPod touch version of MR, at http://mobile.macrumors.com; it lacks design, but still displays the main things from the site.
I don't see an actual App Store-type app coming out though, Apple would never allow for one that offered speculation and possible leaks from their own company.

Sorry guys, I didn't see that mobile site before I started this thread, but you made some good points.
I know apple would NEVER let an app that speculated about upcoming products and such into the app store, but even a better designed and better organized mobile site would be great. Also, another thought comes to my mind: there are several RSS feed readers available in the app store, so could you get updates from the MacRumors RSS feed through one of those apps?

ye, RSS would work.

you could also add the mobile macrumors site as an icon on your homescreen. i cant remember what it's called, but it's on the same menu to bookmark a website

Idea-MacRumors Forums iPhone app

wouldn't it be cool if there was an iphone app for the mac forums? I would love to be able to check new posts, and currently subscribed posts from the mobile User CP.

I dont know what kind of things like plug ins vBulletin allows, but just a cool idea eh?

I for one am glad you made a new thread. I would have never stumbled upon these great mobile options.

Very nice.

If I had an iPhone or iPod Touch A MacRumors app would be so nice. Push notifications of front page/ page 2 articles and maybe even forum posts (in subscribed threads)

I would buy a iPod Touch if there was one.

Macrumors app? With push notifications?

I'd like to see one someday. I subscribe via RSS in mail on my iMac, but an active app on my iPhone with incoming notifications similar to what's been demonstrated by the recent screenshots of the AP app would be welcome.

But with such an active forum, what would you like pushed? New posts? Subscribed threads? New rumors?

iPhone App for Macrumors

Isn't it about time Macrumors makes an App for the iPhone?
Imagine having a slick UI to log into the forums
instead of having to go through the mobile Safari.

I don't think it needs an iPhone app but I do think it needs an iPhone webpage.

Neowin's iPhone page is amazing!!!
