A Sims Forum Mobile App?

edited June 2015 in Forum Ideas & Feedback
Okay, so I really need this. I actually leave my house quite frequently and it would be so much more convenient for me to use an app for the forums rather than my browser, for the following reasons:

1) Using the Internet for the forums eats up my data! I love to look on here a lot, and if we could have an app that optimizes how much data is used, rather than using my mobile browser, that would be amazing!

2) Using the forums in a mobile browser is messy. I constantly have to change the setting to the desktop view, and even then it's not optimized for the phone, and I always have to pinch and zoom. An app that has specific optimizations for the mobile device you're on could be great. This way, you can have a great experience on your mobile device when using the forums as well as on your computer.

But that's just my two cents. :)
Let me know if you agree.

@SimGuruDrake Can you check this out? Since you seem to be the only active Guru right now? xD

    I'm always using the forums on my tablet and I agree that it's very messy, I hate having to switch it to desktop mode every single time I log in, or open a thread in a new tab. So I'd love a mobile app! :)

    I hope we can get a forums app! 50% of the time I'm on the forums is on my phone and sometimes it gets rather frustrating.

    It would be cool to have but only if it's visually impaired friendly.
