Possibly getting an App

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

As was said above, it is planned.

Oh having an app would be so helpful! I actually looked for an app when I found Online Book Club. I wrote reviews on the Goodreads app so it would be nice for this site to have an app as well.

Having an app would definitely make use of the Online Book Club so much easier. Posting forum replies, checking scores, and looking at giveaways would all fit in my pocket. Apps always make systems easier. Developing an app might be difficult and maybe a little pricy, but with the combined help of the community, it could be done. Maybe admin should even think about opening some donations too. Who knows? I feel an app coming sometime in the future though.

As a new member I also find it difficult to constantly be going back into my email to obtain the link, an app would be perfect.

I agree

I wish the app would go through. Apps are much easier to access and operate.
