Hi all,

I tend to do most of my Internet chatting & (dare I say!) social
networking on my lovely iPhone.
Just thinking the other day how great it would be if the marvellous chaps & chapesses at Steadicam Forum had any plans to make a dedicated Steadicam Forum App for the iPhone? Or, do any of our wonderful members know a clever person who might turn this forum into an app? I'd certainly throw twenty quid in!

Just an idea. Any thoughts?

I'm not really sure what form an app would take for a forum...

The only thing I think you could add is Push Notifications, but that could be done via an RSS feed app.

Sorry to rain on the parade,

Someone already wrote an app to allow users that log into phpBB forums to directly interface the database in a "mobile" format instead of viewing the webview frontend.

Check me out

Granted, that app was written with phpBB in mind, so it works only on phpBB forums, whereas SteadicamForum runs on IP.Board. To make something really useful, you'd probably have to write an app that functions similarly to something like TouchBB Forum Browser. Simply, you'll need to learn coding for the IP.Board forums, then learn to code for the iPhone, and then mix the two. No easy task. I'd just contact the makers of IP.Board (Invision Power Services, Inc) and see if they're considering creating an app for their board software. Maybe express an interest in collaborating with them?

The Google Reader mobile site for iPhone is a very capable RSS reader, and it's free. Other than that, there are many RSS reader apps, but with RSS newsfeed, you just get the topic, not replies. Ultimately, the reader will just be a heads up that there are new topics, and a handy link to the new thread.
