    I think there should be a GBATemp mobile app for iPhone or Android.

    Im starting of with this whole android development thing, and I'm willing to give it a shot, what exactly are you looking for, just the ability to browse forums???

    However as I stated, im kinda new to all this development stuff so although I say i'll give it a shot nothing may come of it.

    Also if I do make it there is no way its going on android market, purely for the fact that i'd have to pay out from my own money to distribute a free app, if anything ill upload the apk to mediafire or something and make a post here

    Wait for the forum upgrade and GBAtemp will be compatible with the apps for IPB already out there.

    iOS costs too much just for some app for some website, unless you're willing for pay for it.

    This.

    Once the forum software is updated not only will there be a functional mobile version of the site, but it will be compatible with Tapatalk anyway.

    I'm fully aware of that; I mean functional, i.e. not read-only.

    Away from you.
    Forums need tapatalk software before functionality. No reason why it's not already here though.

    the forum does have Tapatalk. athough the taptalk app reports "Cannot connect to forum, this forum is either restricting access from Tapatalk or the installed tapatalk plugin is not working. Please contact your forum administrator."

    If you change the theme to "IP.Board Mobile" using the "Change Theme" button at the bottom of any page (beside RSS icon), if gives it quite an iOS app-esque look and feel, and presumably (I lack a device to test with) makes the forum more mobile friendly. (And pretty sure it's fully functional).

    The IPB app also works, although it isn't as good a the tapatalk one.

    grrr... i visited the site from my ipod and was greeted with the "this site has an app. check out tapatalk" message. i thought, "wow, they have it working" so i proceeded to spend the $3 to purchase the app...only to discover while trying to access the forum via tapatalk that it still isn't working. hopefully it's working soon as this is the only forum i even visit with or without tapatalk... :(

    the mobile skin has been fixed.

    here is how to activate it:
    1) if you are visiting from a mobile phone you should automatically be seeing the mobile theme
    2) if the mobile theme doesnt show up automatically, just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Change theme" to choose the mobile theme
    3) you can switch back to the full theme at any time

    Also, Tapatalk support was planned but last minute it seems that it crashed.
    I'm going to get it fixed asap.
