RE: ANNOUNCING PROJECT AURORA
Agreed. I don't want to sound whiny because I love this site, and am very appreciative of the work you do, but not having an app would be a less than ideal experience. I certainly understand that you have your work cut out for you just to re-write the site, but I do hope that you will not completely write off the idea of an app as something you may revisit after the site is squared away. Tappatalk drives me crazy, but not half as much as having to browse a web page in crappy mobile chrome would.

Tell the truth. You're just mad we gave you our BB coach. Give it time. The positive sinking will think in.

I can certainly take a look when that time arrives. Hopefully third party middleware solutions for writing "once" across iOS and Android will be better by then. Because I just refuse to buy into the entire Apple ecosystem just to write one app. And fragmentation within Android is an issue too. I'd be interested in having you test the mobile setup for me. Having a harsh critic is useful for that.

At least that fiasco ended up being the final major decision made by Bobinski before he GTFO as AD.

I went responsive and havent looked back. It prevents us from having to create a myriad of mobile apps which causes duplicate development out the hiney. And I cant even begin to describe how much easier rolling out development modifications are when you dont have to deal with all of the mobile providers in the middle.

Question:

If the Mobile App is going away next year, will you still be able to access via Tapatalk, or is that feature going away too?
