    Question Anybody Thinking About a MacTalk App?

    I was wondering if anybody might be thinking about or creating a MacTalk App just like TUAW's Full of features like podcast downloads and the blog and forums. It would be awesome

    I would use this for sure. Especially if it had the polish of the TUAW app. In app advertising would not bother me either. Forums and blogs are all I would be interested in though.

    I would use a Mactalk almost every day-wonder if any Mactalk staff member will do one?

    Tapatalk for forums, iTunes streams podcasts to the iPhone, Safari for the blog....do you need a special app when there's already those options out there?

    Tapatalk is quite a decent app. I definitely recommend it. If only the other forums I'm on used it, that would make life so easy.

    i just got tapatalk.
    i dont like it, simply because i cant seem to find the button for ' new posts '
    it only seem to represent the sub forum threads, rather than the forum that covers all new posts which i use alot.

    "Latest" shows the same as the Live Post Spy on the website if that helps.

    Yeh I have thought in the past, being a mactalk forum, shouldn't there be a mactalk app? I would certainly get it, and wouldn't mind some minor ads or to pay upto a couple of dollars for the app.
