    its website works fine on mobiles, tho it has an annoying advert that displays near the bottom and when your typing it gets in the way and never closes.

    i know the forum needs adverts to cover costs, but does it really need one placed to overlap your type box.

    No. B/c in my experience the site works perfectly fine in mobile browser. Better to use that money/time/resources on something more beneficial. But that's just my opinion, mobile app still an interesting idea B-)

    Hmmm. Perhaps you have notifications disabled globally?

    That would be great, especially for the people who comment or post and receive notifications often. Complaining about the size of the app itself being >300mb still live in 2009, phones come with no less than 128gb like since 2018, lmao.

    No, I don't. Other notifications work just fine.

    I bought my phone in 2020 with 32Gigs of storage, so I guess that statement is false.

    Besides, no app needs to be a bloated piece of shit. My apps don't even reach half a Megabyte, yet some of them look like they should be in the 100-150Megabyte range.

    Discord web can't detect what games you're playing, I think that's it

    there's still plenty of phones that still come with only 16gb internal storage with limited to no expandability options

    just because you have the money to buy an overpriced phone with lots of storage doesn't mean the cheaper phones with little storage don't exist

    Phones with 16gb? sure they are chinese knockoffs or something. I'd dare to say you're just cheap.

    cheap? yeah of course, i only get paid like $350usd/month so i can't afford to pay for overpriced phones that always include less and less features

    No, thanks. I think that browsing in landscape mode is enough and plebbit already burned me out with the aggressive app spam that prompt everytime (unless I accept their cookes) when I open it on the mobile browser.

    Nowadays its pretty safe to assume that no matter how cheap the phone is, it will most likely have a micro sd card slot, I own a 32gb Xperia XZ which I have expanded with a 128gb micro sd card...

    most site specific-apps nowadays are just glorified browser-panes,
    maybe Gbatemp should better detect the useragent and show a mobile optimised css-style? (this is not a request!)
    and i agree, that a lot of apps are totally bloated.

    and as a programmer myself i would say:
    "since python appeared the perl-paradigma ('i can do that too, but in less') seems to have been diminished"

    and i'm glad cheaper phones still support expandability, unlike the more expensive garbage

    This idea has been debated and rejected before. There is no reason to create and maintain an app, when the website is perfectly functional on mobile.
