    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!

    Worth the $1.99 then you think? Do you have it for your phone Shaun? Droid/iPhone or whatever?

    Yep now that all of my company's computers are monitored, I use it exclusively at work.

    Works great, although sometimes I have moderator issues. And of course embedded images don't display, but overall its convenient and does what you need it to do.

    I can't speak for an iphone but I have a Droid phone and the app runs 10x faster than running thru web pages on the browser.

    The text is not greatest for reading in Safari IMO. It also loads quicker in Forum Runner. I sprung for the Full version after a couple hours of taking a look at the Free version. Another thing I like is being able to put your league forum on the app's home page and quickly jump in for a quick update.

    It's much faster than going through the browser.

    Forum runner is awesome. I'm posting this from my iPhone right now. It's easily worth the 1.99. It formats everything perfectly for the screen and navigation is a breeze. Plus, you can use it for other forums as well.

    Yeah like ThePlague said it's not even close on a Droid.

    I have a Pro and the web is "fine" but not like using my computer at home at all. Forum runner is awesome because as soon as I click the website it logs me in and takes me straight to T1, shit, it might be faster than my home PC to get to the forum I usually visit, since I don't have T1 forums bookmarked on my home PC.
