Not sure if this is the right spot. Just wondering if there was any thoughts to bringing the app back? It was great and I loved it.

I understand that you guys do the vast majority of this website for nothing, it’s very appreciated. Maybe we could throw in another appeal alongside the standard forum appeal to help pay for the development of an app if someone has the skill set?

What would be ball park figure to aim for do you think? Is it in the realm of possibility? What are the biggest hurdles?

RoarFEED is no long available on the App Store (iPhone).

Since the website upgrade earlier this year, the responsive design on the site makes it better than RoarFEED for IOS.
It costs a few hundred bucks for me to publish RoarFEED on the App Store plus all the development time. The whole idea of RoarFEED was to have a user-friendly interfaces to the forum on the iPhone; the responsive design on the forum now achieves just that.

RoarFEED will still work for anyone who has downloaded it before it became unavailable.

I will just no long develop it any further - it's not worth it anymore and I don't have the time.

although, never say never. If the phpbb development team come out with a suitable native API then i'll look at RoarFEED 5.
