iPhone App viewing?

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a good way to view Sliplive via App and not browser. I've quickly tried TouchBB Lite and Forum Reader Free. Neither would connect to area216.net/sliplive. Any info?

I think I need to do something on the board end for those to work. I just looked into it a bit and it seems some of these things require modules to be installed in phpBB and possibly mods to the theme.

Two pay apps look kind of interesting - Tapatalk and Forumrunner. Tapatalk seems a bit higher rated. The 2 Free ones get pretty poor ratings. Tapatalk and Forumrunner also have Android apps.

I could pursue this a bit further... anyone else interested in this kind of thing?

The board is fine in a browser. I wouldn't jump through any hoops if it were me... ;)

I'm not a tablet user, but I'd see myself just using the browser to use this board. Then again, I'm not as savvy with tablets, so what do I know :lol:

There's also the possibility that we could get some more traffic if we went with one of these mobile app board reader services. It could be good to get a few new faces around here... I need to upgrade the board anyway, may go for it at that point.
