I think I have an easy solution... taptalk.

Free plugin for forums, downloadable app for us. Very easy to install.

Yes? Maybe? Kill my hopes and dreams?

FAQ from Forum Owner:

Q: How much does it cost?
A: As a forum owner you are free to activate Tapatalk in your forum, and you are free to remove/deactivate it anytime you want to. A free version of the app is also available. There is a paid version at US$2.99 for iPhone, Android, Nokia (BlackBerry version is in beta and is currently free).

Q: Which forum system does it currently support?
A: Currently phpBB3 3.0.x, vBulletin 3.7.x/3.8.x/4.0.x, Invision Power Board (IPB) 3.0.x and Simple Machine Forum (SMF) 1.1.x/2.0.x are supported.

Q: I have multiple forums, Can I activate more than one forum?
A: Yes, you can and additional forums are free also.

Q: What's the point of this app if my members can access my site with mobile skin at no cost?
A: We received a lot of feedback from users that they want a dedicated app on their smartphone. Most users are contented with the mobile skin or a standard web browser but some of them would appreciate a full-on native app on their phone. For example Tapatalk app allows user to upload photo directly from their phone to your forum as an image attachment. We are also rolling out Push Notification support so it helps your members to stay in touch with your forums while on-the-go.

Q: Do you do rebranding / private white label for my forum?
A: Yes, please visit our rebranding page for more information

Q: What about a client for Windows Mobile?
A: We are currently no plan for Windows Mobile but will revisit it when Windows Mobile 7 is released.

Q: How does the Tapatalk Plug-in work with my forum system security?
A: The Plugin is designed to inherit all security policies from your forum system. For example, if a specific sub-forum is a restricted access, the Tapatalk iPhone client would not be able to access it unless the logging member has the authority to access it.

Q: Is this service compatible with all other 3rd party modifications that I have installed on my forum system?
A: While we don't guarantee the Tapatalk Plugin will work with all your existing modification. It allows you to experiment the compatibility with our free Lite version. We have tested with many forums with certain degree of modifications and majority of them work well with Tapatalk. Support for modified forums are courtesy basis only and we will not provide refund or any trouble-shooting if it is found that your modification caused the Tapatalk from working as designed.

Q: My organization also developed a forum system, how I can make it compatible with the Tapatalk app so our customers / members would be able to use the same app to access?
A: We can provide different level of support to assist you to develop a similar plugin system that speaks the Tapatalk language. Just drop us an email of what you have in mind.

We will be rolling out our own iPhone & Android apps in the near future which will be free (tapatalk requires everyone to pay for their app). Please hang tight...

well no that's not true, tapatalk has a free app and one for $2.99. i mean yea the free one is read only, which is kinda useless. but yea. just seemed like a quick, more immediate fix... even if it's just until the apps are made available.

but okay... i'll wait. even though we've been waiting for a long time. do we have an ETA?

I wouldnt pay $2.99 for that. Just sayin. I would rather just use Safari to navigate Interference (I dont have a huge problem with this like some others here). Although I'm more excited about the Interference app. Hope its almost ready.

Embedding images from the phone will be awesome once the tour starts up again.

i would... i can access interference just fine on my droid as well... it's a little slow when typing sometimes, but mostly it works fine. would just like an easier way of going about it, like with a couple of the other forums i go to that have vBulletin.

obviously i'd love an app as well... i'm not holding my breath though 'cause we were first told that something's in the works a year and a half ago. the mobile interference is like chinese democracy.

I think Interference would get pissed off if they were told they had to pay $2.99 to make Interference easier on their phones. They're a bunch of cheap asses you know.

they are... which is why they wouldn't, ya know, have to do it

in fact we could just install it and not tell anyone, and only the 7 people per month that browse this section of the forum would know


i just don't understand why a simple, free plug-in couldn't be implemented to at least give people an alternative until the official app is released... that's all.
