The mobile web page is pretty decent! Even with the forums!

Or, for the forums you could use Tapatalk!

The mobile version plays out ok, but I would love a macrumors app. I was actually surprised that there wasn't one (searched app store first).

Has anyone heard of Onswipe? They power some of the blogs I read on my iDevices. Wonder how MR would look on their platform.

Given that this site is one of the first places that I go to on the Internet every day, I whole-heartedly (six-hundred, thirty-) second this notion. I don't need an iPad/tablet app, though maybe Android tablets could use it (by virtue of their browser having a tendency to load mobile sites more often); just something for my fourth gen iPod touch (and maybe my Galaxy Nexus).

Just want to add another yes vote for this. Whilst browsing on the iPad is not too bad, browsing on the iPhone just sucks!

Just like to throw my support behind an app dedicated for MacRumors forums. Great place to interact and it would be awesome if it had an app.

I agree that the site and forums need an iPad/iPhone app. I love checking the site numerous times daily and it would make the experience even better.

I actually very much dislike the mobile version of the forums on this site. There are too few threads on one page and I feel like I have to go through 4-5 pages to find something that would be on page 1 or 2 on my desktop.

That said, an app with options of how many threads/posts per page would be great.

I'm surprised that an Apple-centric website doesn't have its own app in the first place.

I hate to bump this (well, it's hardly a bump..) but we NEED A MACRUMORS APP! I use the forums profusely on my iPhone, and to be completely honest, am not a huge fan on layout of it all. Some small glitches bug me, for example: I get a notification number for however many people have quoted me.. If I go to my subscribed threads before I look at quoted entries, the number will stay there! Call me picky or whatever, but I feel like a standalone app could do us more MacRumors fans more justice.

Is there an iPad app for MacRumors forum?

Hi

I'm regularly using this forum, but using my windows PC and browser which sounds little out of synch

Is there a iPad app for this forum ?

While on this note : Is there at least an iPhone app for this forum ?


TIA

Not specifically for MR, but an app named Tapatalk works pretty well for a lot of forums including this one. It's available for iPhone & iPad.

I have never seen anything free, but to echo the previous poster, Tapatalk is pretty decent.

You can also try viewing the forums from the mobile version of the site in Safari.

FWIW, there was/is a MacRumors app being designed. I haven't heard anything about it recently, but I'd bet it's gotta be close to done.

It may have been put on hold once AppShopper was pulled from the App Store. I'd assume getting AppShopper back in the store is pretty important.

You can be honest with us. This isn't coming.
