I think I know what you're saying LeonardS but so far I'm unable to distinguish any difference in the Escape Forum on my iPhone and the Escape Forum on my computer. In neither case does it seem that the web page is opening in Safari. Photos etc. pop up fast. At least until the forum gets an app, the one touch from my home screen is fast and easy.

I have an Android phone, but the experience is much like what LeonardS describes. Using the app seems to simplify the experience of visiting a site over using a browser, and makes it much easier to navigate and view things. There are obviously a few things that get trimmed out in the app to have it function as it does on a phone, but I am glad to forgo these things for the ease of use.

I would be happy just to be able to get of the "Recent Discussions" box on the right side. It can be somewhat useful, but in general just unnecessarily restricts the real content to a fraction of the screen width. That's bad enough on a typical computer, but on a tablet it is ridiculous.

I have used the FGRV app - it is so limited that I don't bother with it on my tablet. It might be different on a "phone" sized screen.

I only use the Recent Discussions box myself. Click on the subject and it takes me to the first unread post on that topic.
I never go to Forums or New Posts.

On the other hand, I don't have data on my iPhone so I can't / don't do much with apps and nobody calls me, and I don't call anybody, so I'm living in a perfect world.

Sure, but that annoying Recent Discussions box is still there, taking up space.

In FiberglassRV, which uses the same software, the User Control Panel includes an option to "Turn off Right Column", in which I selected "Yes", which gets rid of this space-waster. This forum doesn't offer that option.
