I've always wanted to tinker with developing mobile apps, but haven't had the time to. For one, it would involve me having to learn a new programming language (not the end of the world) and the frameworks for mobile apps (especially those that need to hook into forums). Then I'd likely have to develop APIs for the forums on the site, since an app wouldn't work well with having to parse the HTML of the site... better to have structured data interfaces. And finally, develop the app itself. After all that... maintenance (which can sometimes also take a bunch of time). It would be an interesting project, but I'm not sure I have the time to put into it among all my other projects (here and at home).
I appreciate the feedback though. I always want to hear what people would like to see for the site. If they're something I can manage and I agree is a good idea, I try to make it happen. An app is a good idea, but hard to make happen.
Out of curiosity, what specific links/buttons seem to be the most difficult on mobile though the phone? What I COULD possibly do, is see about adjusting the style for the site when displayed on mobile, so certain items are a little bigger and spaced apart. That was part of the original intent for the mobile layout. It USED to be that the full regular site had to be browsed. I've since created styles for the site that adjust depending on screen width for mobiles, tablets, and or course, computers.
