This forum now supports Android and the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad natively with Forum Runner!

What is Forum Runner?

Forum Runner is an Android/iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client. This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

Looks cool, thanks Matt or Kipper. What are the differences between the full and free edition. Going to try it out and See how well it works. Should be a fun app when you are at a wrenching party and you check all the things that they did wrong when they installed it. Will pictures load faster and more?

What is the cost of the non free app? like to get all the bells and wistles so I can play with it.

Wes gets the glory. He is our glorious, behind-the-scenes online hero, and we owe him our thanks and a couple of free beers.

I like it. Some things are different and take some getting used to, but its useful, especially when using a phone.
