    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 GridironFans.com 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!

    According to the reviews, looks like they have some kinks to work out...

    ForumRunner supports Google ads, something Tapatalk doesn't.

    Steve12 The night is dark and full of terrors

    So do the ads support the site or forum runner?

    The ads support the site.

    Most of the reviews say that the app is crashing on a consistent basis, can't cut and paste and you have to pay extra for push notifications. Also don't get recent threads on a consistent basis.

    The 10 most recent reviews include:

    1 - Stars - 5
    2 - Stars -3
    3 - Stars -1
    4 - Stars - 0
    5 - Stars - 1 (with no review.)

    I don't think I'll be buying this one unless the reviews get better.
