A good point. Although Tapatalk has most of the functionality that a full site does, it IS limited. I often prefer the full site, especially on a tablet. One trick I use in Chrome is to tap the settings button and check the box for "request desktop site", which sends the http request using a desktop agent profile instead of a mobile one.

I've sent the requests to Admin.
I've not figured out how to use FGRV App efficiently myself. I like this site with unread posts in bold, under Recent Discussion. Click on one and it takes you to the first unread post. FGRV App doesn't seem to work that way.

When traveling I just link my MacBook Air to the iPhone by Bluetooth. Expect it uses a lot more data than an App.

On a tablet, the full site is fine, but on a phone, the mobile app is WAY better. It is much easier to read, and I like that it cuts a lot of the 'fluff' out, like user info. On the full site you need to keep scrolling side to side, zooming, and the such, but not on the app. It is easy to check subscriptions, new posts, PMs, etc. Even moderating is easy on the mobile app.

Yeppers, and I do need (and use) glasses to read.

Is there any news on the app for this forum? I thought there was a mention that it was being released.
