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 your favorite forums 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!

Looks cool, thanks Matt or Kipper. What are the differences between the full and free edition. Going to try it out and See how well it works. Should be a fun app when you are at a wrenching party and you check all the things that they did wrong when they installed it. Will pictures load faster and more?

What is the cost of the non free app? like to get all the bells and wistles so I can play with it.

Just downloaded the paid version, pretty cool. Makes viewing easier for sure on the phone.

I like it. Some things are different and take some getting used to, but its useful, especially when using a phone.

Nope. It now works great in your browser on mobile.
Hah that's how I'm accessing it now. Mobile browser. But an app bugging me that there is new stuff will make me remember to get on here more often because me memory sucks 🤣
