Default iPhone / Android mobile app for forum

At some point, it would be really nice to have a true mobile app for our forum. I received a notice this morning that vBulletin has released a mobile app for forums. Cost is $199.

Woody has done something different for the ih8mud app. He implemented an off-the-shelf, third party product, available here:
http://www.forumrunner.net/
In this case, the software is free to install on our server, but then cost $1.99 for each user.

I'm good with either. A thought in favor of Forum Runner is that since Mud is already using it having two differant apps for two differant forums seems silly. maybe comunication with Woody would be a good idea and see if he's considering the V-Bulletin app....


Is the $199 a one time cost?

That's a good thought -- I'll ping Woody. How do you like the Forum Runner app? I haven't used it yet. (I also don't think I paid $1.99 for it -- did you?)

I believe that is correct. However, RS is running an older version of vBulletin, version 3.7.1 which might not work with the new smart phone app. If that's the case, there would be additional cost to upgrade our forum software as well. Woody is still running an older version too, 3.8.4, but his is newer than ours.

I would be up for either. Woody had me download his for my Android and it works great. I would pay $1.99 or vote for a server version/upgrade.

Any update on this? Is Tapatalk an option, since lots of folks already have it? I think its free on the server side.

I installed Forum Runner.

The cost to install Forum Runner is $1.99 on your device through the iTunes app store.

Once you download and install it's under "Cars / Trucks" Then "Toyota" and Rising Sun was on the 2nd page.

Enjoy!

This is pretty slick. I just paid my $1.99 and I am posting this reply from my iPhone 4.

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.

Forum Runner Feature List

  • Browse your favorite forums in an easy-to-use-interface with multiple notification types (private message, subscription, etc)
  • Fully customizable home screen with your favorite forums
  • PUSH NOTIFICATION SUPPORT : Get private message and subscribed thread updates from your favorite forums in the background!
  • Poll updates (private messages/subscriptions) from favorites on home screen - shows you a summary of which forums you have new messages or subscriptions on!
  • Image attachment thumbnail and full size viewing from threads
  • View a thread's image attachments in one convenient screen (much like the native iPhone "Photo" app)
  • Save thread images to your iPhone/iPod touch library
  • Fully search-able forums!
  • View embedded links without leaving the app, including YouTube videos
  • Supports portrait AND landscape mode
  • Full posting options (quote posts, start new thread, etc)
  • Attach unlimited photos from your library (or take a photo from the camera and attach it)
  • Full support for private messages and private message folders
  • Full support for thread subscriptions - track your favorite threads and be updated via push when they have new posts!

Some screen shots of Forum Runner running on various devices:

iPhone: Home Screen with customizable icons and notifications:
