Any progress on the MR app?

Are you still waiting for a response from Arn? If so, let us know here, and maybe a mod will notice.

It's a project we're interested in, and yes, we've talked with Saladinos about it.

The thing I don't understand is, is Apple really going to allow a site about APPLE rumors and talking about hacking and forums talking about their products not working or other things like that in the App Store? I don't think so.

I wondered the same thing until MDN got their app approved.

I see no problem. It's essentially a news website. There are many news websites that have their own iphone apps - Sky News, NYTimes etc etc, all of which sometimes report negative news or conjectures about Apple. The china iphone suicide is all over these sites at the moment, plus a dozen more news website iphone apps.

Also MR has been quite stringent in not allowing any detailed discussion of how to circumvent Apple copyrights or hackintosh how-tos etc, which is the same stance as these other news organs take.

MR on the go...

Was brainstorming and thinking that an app of MR would be a very useful tool! I find myself on the site every so often and thought an app of our beloved MR would be just what the doctor ordered! What do you guys think? Worth the time to design?

That would be awesome! (Sorry for being late to the party )

Heck, if the App Store wouldn't approve it, even a web-app would be pretty nice. I'm not a huge fan of the mobile version of the MR forums, but a either a native app or a webapp would be pretty slick...

Has anyone ever tried 'Forums' by Connex? Looks like it can hook into vBulletin sites liek MacRumors and do the basic nicely.

update on release

I know you probably don't have a firm release date but any idea, weeks months? Also any idea on price, I have no problem paying for it as long as it is resonable, under $5

App is making good progress.

Not going to talk about too much until it's done (or nearly done). Premature to talk about price, but probably free.

Rest assured, I am working on it, and when there's news, I'll say something.

Is the new macrumors app affiliated with macrumors?

Is this the "official" macrumors app or some non affiliated dev?

Considering we offered to make a full app that would allow you to browse the forums and post, search, etc, and never even got a response from Arn, I highly doubt it.
