    I have enabled a couple of mobile forum apps for Racing Forums: Tapatalk and Forum Runner.

    Forum Runner has a free app on Android and iPhone that supports reading, or a $2 app that supports posting

    Tapatalk has an app on just about everything, but it's $3 and up.

    I'll post screenshots and feature lists below.

    Once you've got the app, just search for "NASCAR" in the directory to find us. :beerbang:

    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 searchable
    • 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!

    The Android Tapatalk app is working great on this new board. It'll be a huge batter saver over the web browser. Thanks for adding this feature.

    I found this board as a result of being on Tapatalk.

    The only problem is that the ignore feature doesn't work on Tapatalk.

    Glad to have you aboard! Yes, I agree, the ignore thing is a bit annoying. Apparently it is planned in a plugin/app update at some point.

    I hear ya but its sweet to be able to navigate the boards again. Mobile browsers are limited IMO for forums. It was driving me nuts this afternoon trying to post/read

    They do tend to suck at browsing forums, yeah.
