    I voted "yes", but I already have access because I have a Droid, I seem to have no problems getting logged on from anywhere.

    Now, I am completely technologically inept, so if this is not what this thread is about, please don't flame me!

    I can access it through my browser on my phone, but I would like an app or something for it!

    No, we're talking about REAL mobile forum access, straight to the forum software itself. Not "I browse the site on my mobile phone web browser..".

    I'd really appreciate it, as I look at COTH a lot on my phone (but would use it more if I could actually see it!). It would be great if the next software update included this.

    oh ok. Well, it's not that big a deal to me since I can already get on it so I guess I"ll vote no.
    Another forum I go to is getting it, but will charge like $4 a month or something stupid like that. Um yeah. Why should i do that when I can already get to it for free.,

    Ah...so you're the other one! I don't know if they would charge for it but the implementation would cost them absolutely nothing as it's 100% free. If they didn't charge for it, the only cost for you would be the cost of the app, which is relatively inexpensive.

    Have had it for years. LG Lotus phone. If you have a problem with your Lotus, download Operamini.

    I would do it. I sort of posted a similar question a few days ago in the tech forum. I personally find it easier to access forums with the mobile friendly apps. (htc incredible)

    Gee, I feel dumb. I access it from my smartphone (HTC) with images off when not at my PC, like most sites that aren't built for smartphones. I'm not sure what you want.

    Edited: Okay you want an app for that? I probably would not use it. I dont like to add additional programs to my pcs or phone. Messes up the registry and I don't want more stuff using memory.

    I can get it fine off of my browser, but it would be fun to have it in an easy-to-navigate app format too. Although then I would have to check it way more often than is healthy.

    This would work better than the browser as it goes directly to the forum software and it's database, so it formats what you view much better than any web browser would. All the regular forum features would be available if enabled. Even multiple accounts if you feel like getting your Alt on about kitty litter.

    Works ok on my Droid but isn't as easy (or as fast or readable) as things for which I have apps or a web assess with an m in it. Might be kind if dangerous tho.
