The Forums now support the Forum Runner and Tapatalk mobile apps!
Along with the upgrade to vBulletin version 4.1.12, Niero's installed a plugin for Forum Runner. It's an app for iOS and Android (Blackberry & Windows Mobile apps are planned for the future) that makes the Forums much more friendly for mobile users. The free version lets you browse the Forums, but will open your web browser if you want to reply to any thread. Dropping $1.99 for the full version gives you access to a number of other features including the ability to reply from inside the app. Andy's tested the iOS version, and I'm been playing around with the Android app. Check out the free version to see if you dig it! All you need to do is go to the search box, type in "Destructoid", and you're set. Niero should be installing support for Tapatalk soon, I'll update this post once that's live. EDIT: Tapatalk support is live!
This? This right here? This is why I don't venture into the forums.
Forum Runner Free is working great and looks slick and sexy so far. I'll be upgrading soon, so I'll let you know how the "pro" features work after I've checked it out. (Unless somebody beats me to it!)
Playing around with the paid version now. In addition to letting you reply in app, you can set it up so your phone will receive push notifications for PMs and thread subscriptions. Neat! Full list of features is on the web site.
Hate that forum. So full of asspies it's unreal. Which probably explains why I've been banned at least 8 times, but most of those were Epic mad that I kept bringing up problems with their game. 3 of them specifically for mentioning that in Gears 2, your data could be wiped. This was before they were owning up to it and were still trying to keep it "hush hush" because they know fuck all about communicating with their community.
Anyway, glad to see not everyone there is full on retarded and only goes to their forums.
