Default Forum mobile app?

Hey Guys,

I was wondering about the play store today on my droid and was wondering why I couldn't find an app for this forum? I see that if you visit it from a mobile device it has a mobile view but the mobile view is so much harder to navigate.

My question being, is their an app and I'm crazy or do some of us more nerdy Vette lovers need to assist?

Let me know

From my Ipad, I use safari (internet) and search corvette forum.
Works for me.

I have used the mobile forum (the m.corvetteforum.com) but was wondering if there was an actual app for it. I am having the Galaxy S3 (should have held out for the new note but w/e......).

Thanks for the info thus far!

Either the forums hate me, or you guys are mistaken

I just checked again and the prompt is the view the forums mobile page (not app). Maybe a moderator or someone high on the knowledge totem could assist? I will never rule out technology hating on me...

It's not an app. It is just a mobile skin

It is not an app. But it works fairly well.

So what your asking is if there is a "Corvette Forum app" in the app store or market...The simple answer NO....

Default Why not?

An app would be awesome. I can't post pics from my IPhone. It would be nice to see posts in real time. Forum activity would increase, which means more ad revenue.

Is the IBAutogroup app currently working for you guys?

It's been quite a while all I get is an error and I had to stop using it.

Whenever I try to use it, it keeps "thinking" forever and this is the error message I finally get:

"The remote server sent an unknown response. This could be a result of the forum software plugin being outdated or having a conflict."

Works fine, be sure to keep it updated. If you go into the settings in the app, tap to clear saved credentials. Then you can browse again and log back in. Drove me nuts until the ios8 upgrade now it never happens.

The ib auto group sucks on my iPhone 5s yes it's easier and quicker but there are no smileys and you can't attach more then 1 pic per post and anytime you post it says "duplicate post"
