Has a mobile app been considered for development? I saw that they have one for the banksy forum using ProBoards http://www.proboards.com/mobile
How can we get one for ebeans? I'd imagine it could help raise money and support the site as well as adding more mobile capabilities for those of us who can't get enough...

I assume this has been brought up before??

There is no app as such, but there is this neat trick you can do in Safari (assuming you are talking about apps for iphones and ipads)
In Safari, navigate to the home or my page of EB, hit the share button Image
Choose "Add to Home screen" from the list
Safari digs into EB and pulls out a nice little EB logo that was specifically put there ages ago, for this very use.
The EB logo will now appear on your home screen, and will link you straight to EB, via Safari.
The site wraps pretty neatly on iDevices as it is, without really needing an app.

Yes, it would cost $$, but I think it could be done for under $10K and maybe less with the right "volunteers".

That's a cool trick, thanks!

You're welcome!
That trick applies to every website you visit. EB was ahead of the curve though, and we put the logo in, otherwise you just get a little screenshot of the page as your homescreen/icon.

So Forum Runner or Taptalk does not work with EP? I spend so much time here and I would have liked to try one of these apps.

Who pays for apps? Oddly enough, my girlfriend bought an app that cost like $75. Blew my drymounting mind.

You can get push notification for a thread you are subscribed to is posted in with these apps.

Or is it also possible to subscribe to a thread and get notification via email?
