I’m comfortably a budget guy, so my phone isn’t a fancy model and acts as a Swiss Army Knife for my many purposes. Having a background app or tab in the background would slow my phone even more, though I’ve never had problems selecting and running apps one by one. It’s not that my phone is incapable of bringing up the forums through the use of the web, or even SLIGHTLY incapable. It’s just more of an annoyance for me to have to navigate through the (granted few) pages to get to the Forums.
A minor gripe, I know, but an app is also pretty classy in my opinion. Even if it may seem pointless, it’s still something that’s pretty cool to have. I’d much rather see the Dev’s utilize their time for more important things, but I was just wondering if it would be a simple endeavor to produce an app, or if it was something already discussed as on the table, or possibly an idea.
