    Is there an app out there for forums like this? I use many forums, and I find it to be a pain in the butt to post/reply to comments using safari.

    Good, I checked it out on the app store. Has very good ratings. I will probably end up getting it tonight.

    Tapatalk could stand for improvement in many areas, but it works pretty nicely. It's been updated a mind-numbing 36 times since it came out in 2009, so the developers take maintaining it and enhancing it seriously. I think it was well worth the $2.99....

    One limitation to be aware of is that some of these forum apps are supported via plugin (e.g. in vB), so your forum will have to be compatible with the app in question. These are a couple of the competitors....
