do yyou think that furry teens should make an app?

Do you believe that an app should be made for those who access this site primarily from smartphone?
any new friends are welcome.

I wouldn't need an app because the mobile version of the forum loads up on my phone.

I just go onto the website and a basic mobile version loads up. It's looks like a basic HTML webpage.

It probably wouldn't be that hard for an app developer to create the app and sync the app to this site... They did it with Facebook... And fjordy, this page does load on my phone, but it would be nice if there were a mobile format of it...

This is suggested frequently, and the short answer boils down to: we don't have the resources to create on right now, but its something being considered for our new site. If you'd like to help, you can vote in this official poll, and even apply to become a beta tester.

To quote Natasha's extensive reply:
As discussed extensively elsewhere, a significant re-development of this site is currently underway, and mobile options are a big part of it.  More about it is here:  http://www.furryteens.org/forum/index.php?topic=15368.0

However, you must understand that a custom-built mobile app for ANY website is not an easy or cheap task.  Every mobile platform uses vastly different programming languages and allows different types of access, and every mobile OS can have many different devices with different capabilities.  It's a daunting task for major companies, hence why mobile apps typically only exist on one or two platforms.  For a website that costs money to run, and is built/maintained by one person in her spare time, it's not going to happen.  There will never be an FT-specific mobile app, so PLEASE stop asking for one, everybody.

BUT, there is an existing app, called Tapatalk, which provides what you're looking for, and is compatible with any forum and almost every mobile device platform.  The new version of FT will be Tapatalk-compatible, so you can use that.  We'll also have a mobile layout that scales down to tiny screen sizes.

 My phone has a 3.5 inch screen and FurryTeens looks great on it. Simply shows a smaller version of it, but you can still read everything with little need to zoom in. Opera mini handles it quite well and automatically zooms in when I misclick.
Also, with FirefoxOS and all, why not make a HTML5 mobile website? It'll be viewable on any platform then and it won't cost as much or be as much effort. It should be able to excuse different coding languages right?

Ehh it would be helpful but it doesn't really matter for me (posting this on phone ATM)

I would try and help code it but I know like nothing for any language of coding
