NSBB iPhone app?

Recommended Posts

Browsing the site is just as easy in safari as it would be in a custom app, I think.


I'll have to take a look at the news sites to see what they're doing. I wonder if anyone has come up with any joomla / phpbb3 templates for that form factor.

Apps always seem much easier to use than safari. A lot of websites have apps, even if they have mobile sites through safari. There are advantages to having a dedicated app rather than using safari. There may be message boards out there with apps already. Someone who knows what they are doing might be able to make a really cool app that would make surfing the site much smoother than on safari. Some examples of apps written for pretty straightforward websites that I use all the time rather than using safari: ESPN Scorecenter, Yelp, Opentable, Yahoo Fantasy Football. All these websites work in safari, but the app makes them far more user friendly.


I found this link here on a google search:



I know little about writing iphone apps, but I know that there are a lot of people out there that write them. You can possibly recoup the development costs by charging a fee for it, or maybe bundling it with an NSBB premium membership. Or maybe there's a member out there with some expertise in writing them.
