No offence, but it looks like the same app that the other site uses.

Also noticed a mistake in the forum listings

It says "DirecTVSoftware Release.." shouldn't there be a space between directv and software? :)

But i do like it, a lot less ads. :)

DavidMi, no offense taken, but don't iPhone mobile forum presentations all look basically the same?

Sorry for the delay in development guys. We've had this in the works for a loooooong time but wanted to fine tune a few things before release. A big thanks goes to Stuart for doing the new graphics.

Nice work! Using it now.

I actually find that really nice so I don't have to look at them all the time and can instead focus on new posts.

Stuart don't get me wrong it's nice. But what I am seeing now is a few of the sites I go to all have their own apps and it appears that all of them are using the same application, but each with its own splash screen.

The software (forum runner) is also a stand alone application which I purchased before these forums had their own dedicated app. The issue I see is currently if I want to view the forums in my iphone I need to download the app for each site. Sites like dbstalk and avsforum for some reason are not listed in the forum runner directory this means to access them I must download their seperate apps (even though they are the same program.)

Would it be possible for your sites to be listed in the main forum runner listings so we don't need 40 different copies of the same program and instead can only use one program, the real forum runner app.

Thanks.

You guys are fast. I just went into the forum runner software and again searched for dbstalk and now you are listed. Thanks for the quick turnaround guys!

(Just avsforum is not listed.. hopefully they are soon!)

Thanks, this will be convenient. I did notice the DIRECTV forums all roll into one parent forum while the dish forums don't. Also, I had forgotten what done of the categories were since I never look at them.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

The software (forum runner) is also a stand alone application which I purchased before these forums had their own dedicated app.

When you say "purchase", you have accidently stumbled on your answer. Each site that uses this software has paid for the right of the users to download it for free. That is why you see each site with it's own version. We could have easily left it up to the user to purchase the software but we didn't want to do that. There are also tweeks in front and behind the scenes to give the user the best experience possible.

So you see, the software may be used on several other sites, but the modifications and no cost aspects are unique for DBSTalk users.
