In what way would it make things easier? What additions would you plan on including to enhance our UX? If you make Android, you'd obviously have to include iOS as well.

I see this as a good idea - Every load of every page of the forum, even if it's only text or the main forums list takes up about 1 Mb. For those of us without limited data plans from our respective mobile companies that's restrictive. It'd work kinda like what (I assume, I'm clearly no expert) the Twitter / Facebook apps do - They install the main infrastructure for it only actual messages to be loaded.

Then again, developing for mobile requires very specific knowledge, and resources. Dunno, but my first guess because of each company's business model, that Android Development Kits would be far cheaper than developing for iOS. Also, would this App be free? Should the developer be allowed to charge for it in reward for taking one for the team?

Anyway, not crazy, I just doubt this is within MFG's reach.

Every load of every page of the forum takes up at least about 1 Mb. That affects mobile users with limited data plans.

An app would have the template pre-installed, and only download the post text info. Substantial improvement.

Can you show me the statistics on this? Somehow I doubt it's even half a meg with sigs and avatars off. I personally have had no problems on my phone or tablet even when I was on a very limited data plan on the campus W-iFi while I was a student. I even browsed on my laptop, with avatars and sigs on. Didn't go over the limit unless I had to download a big application for a class.


I could maybe do iOS, but you'd have to pay me.

Actually I meant the main index... but then again that one has the logo on it + 24 unique board icons (which are about 4.1 Kb each).

Spot on. The 1 Mb came from some calculations, looks like I was wrong. Just checked with a site size checker, it says the text itself is 145 kb + 201 kb logo + roughly 100 kb worth of icons = 445 kb for main index.

I just like Twitter's minimalist app layout, I thought MFG would benefit from something similar.
