    TS.com is pretty thin as far as data goes and writing an app would be a waste of money. All Smartphones will render it well. I am writing this on a Smartphone and have worked in the telecommunications industry for 20 years. Trust me on this one.

    A wiser investment would be to update the bulletin board software to something like vBulletin...

    I don't even have a smartphone, just an few years old Samsung Rugby II flip phone, and I can do ts.com with minimal effort.

    Works fine on my IPhone 4S. No problems navigating, posting, posting pics or even creating threads in its current format from my phone. I'm not real computer savy but I can't see how it would get much easier with an App but please explain.

    You guys are no fun. I can access it with my iPhone and iPad as well. An app that supported push notifications when someone posts to a thread your watching and a message center would be helpful no?

    By the way, if you don't know what a push notification is then you can pretty much ignore this thread.

    My T-Mobile Galaxy S3 has the capability to make a bookmark on the homescreen so I don't need to open Internet Explorer first to get to the website.....

    Sometimes "new and improved" isn't.

    Somebody with "A life" probably wouldn't be posting on this forum- LOL

    I agree with Jason, an app would be handy although not essential since any browser can get one to ts.com.

    An app would not necessarily be a need but would be very convenient and would promote more use of this forum. Naturally there will always be those who oppose any change, which I don't understand as it wouldn't change how they interact with this site. With the popularity of mobile devices this is a topic worth consideration and not so quickly dismissed. There would certainly be advantages. I would also like to see an ATA app.
