    If you have an iPhone®/iPad® you may want to check out the touchBB app on the App Store℠. The OMSA forum now supports its protocol. It makes it easier to navigate the forum directly from the app, as compared to Safari. There is a free "Lite" version which supposedly has advertisement, but I did not see any. But it can only be used for up to two sites using touchBB. The full versions is $0.99. Works quite nicely. More information regarding the app can be found here:

    The app is also available for android phone users, but I have not tested it.

    I have tried this for both the iPhone and iPad. In my opinion, it works nicely for the iPhone but I find Safari a better experience on the iPad.

    It was not instantly obvious how to use the app so if anyone has questions about how to set it up on your phone, let me know.

    I am just bumping this post up as an update.

    Although I prefer browsing and posting on the forum through my desktop, I often find myself using my iPad. If you use an iPad and want to post photos, I find the TouchBB app much easier to use. To be honest, I haven’t found a better way to put photos on the forum when using an iPad.

    Guys,
    We need to add an Android, too.

    Mike,

    As Peter says in his initial post, there is a TouchBB app for Android. He just hasn’t tested it. Perhaps you should.
