An official MacRumors app?

Would any developer here be interested in creating a MacRumors app? Would MacRumors be interested in that?

It would be a good idea I think as it would make browsing MacRumors on the move a great deal easier. Could integrate live feeds for events? And the forums/news pages?

I could see it becoming v.v.popular, especially if it was brought out just before a big apple announcement?

Anyway, just an idea, but thought I'd let you guys know it!

Potentially successful, but I'm not sure to what extent.
With regards to being able to reply to posts easily, I fully concur to that point.
However, the latest news updates can easily be grabbed via a standard RSS program such as Newsstand on the iPhone (which is what I personally use).

How do you get Macrumors updates with newsstand?

I have always wished for a mac rumors app. I would love to be able to post on the forum more easy, and get forum spy on the go etc. Please someone create this.

An application or maybe a mobile version of the website. An application is more appropriate imo since a mobile version of the website would give macrumors's ppl a lot of work.

I'd really like to see a more general vBulletin app. A lot of sites I visit (including one I run) use vBulletin. It would be great to have an iPhone interface to them.

One that works with all the popular forum apps (vBulletin, phpBB, SimpleMachines, etc.) would be even better.
