    Don't think there's a forum specific app and I haven't heard of anyone developing one. Not sure what use it would be beside a PHPboard reader. Good idea though, a mobile PHP reader. I wish blackberry had one. I'd never log off if I could read from my BB.

    I have been reading and posting to EDC Forums since the iPhone first came out. Takes a little getting used to but I haven't had any problems.

    I'm posting this from my iPod touch. Another forum that I frequent has an iPhone app. I don't have it but a lot of people love it. Apparently there is a company that makes forum specific apps. I dont remember the name but I know it's out there.

    The only problems I have are sometimes with photos and the hyperlinks. Which has nothing to do with the site really.

    PS I'm on my iPhone right now.

    I don't see any problems using the current site with the iPhone.

    An iPhone or mobile specific site would need to be server side, not client side.

    An app wouldn't work very well. It would have to continually scrape the current site, plus the forum would lose ad impressions.

    I get a "mobile" version of edcf on my blackberry bold
    I can't see pictures or links to other sites, but can read text and post, and read and reply to PM (writing this on my blackberry)
