    Does anyone know of an app which lets you browse and post to forums?

    Most websites use common technologies to manage their forums, one of my favourite forums uses SMF2.0 and this forum uses VBulletin. Surly these will have an api that would enable an app to nicely browse the threads and posts.

    I'm hoping this already exists and someone can point me at it.

    thanks in advance

    I'm using [app]Forums[/app] and [app]TouchBB Forum Browser[/app]. Neither is perfect, but both will allow you to at least read your forums.

    I probably prefer TouchBB, it seems more stable and allows you to view active threads, but it falls down because it requires a php file to be installed on the forum's server - fine if you're the forum admin, but a hard sell to get other admins to allow it on their server.

    [app]Forums[/app] allows me to read a variety of forums but it is basic. However it doesn't require any extra software.

    Neither will show me a list of unread threads, or allow me to pick up threads where I last got to.
