    Very nice :) Did you get that custom made or did it come with vBulletin?
    I wish I had an Android device, however I only have an iPod Touch. You should consider adding Tapatalk support to the forum.

    That's pretty cool, might increase activity here since people can access on the go. Good work.

    Tapatalk would be a great idea for the Linux Forum. Sometimes, when I'm not near my computer, I feel as if for convenience, I should be able to post on this forum using my iPod touch. The site takes a while to load at times, but this would be a great addition though.

    Hi! I was wondering is the app available for iPhone as well? I really only use my Android for work so I'm not on it much. Thanks!

    I am currently posting from the application and can confirm it is functional. The UI isn't something to go crazy over and I wish it had a dark theme and meshed better with ICS, but it works.

    It has almost all the functionality of the desktop version of the site.

    Yeah, actually.. that's probably broken now :) It was for our vbulletin version of the forum. You're better off using Tapatalk to connect to the site if you're going to use an app.

    Sorry about that :)
