I'm wondering too.  Plus FB link.   I think it would be hard to moderate, but would get more fans.

My question would be, why do you think there needs to be an app?

I'm of the opinion the app world is completely out of control.  It's like almost every website I visit has there own specific app, then I get the prompt "I see you're browsing on mobile, would you like to download our app."  This is ridiculous, there's no functionality lost when visiting through a mobile browser, I just want to read the articles/posts or watch videos, I don't need a specific app for every website I visit, your app adds nothing, that's what my mobile browser is for!

I browse this site on my phone all the time.  There's never been a time I thought this would be easier with an app.  I can browse the forum topics, navigate the pages, and give tommy points no problem.  Are you guys having a different experience?

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

I agree.

I find this website and forum really functional, and I just access it via chrome on my cell phone normally.

I've been meaing to ask this question for a long time.
While I agree that checking a website on a browser is fine, it would be really nice if I have an app to check a website I've been seeing everyday since 2010.

We can do all things on a browser, but i think it would be much easier on an app. It would look better and simpler. I'm on the forum at least 10 times a day so for me it would be better with an app

a little off topic, but is CB the only blog with a forum? I haven't seen another NBA sbnation blog with a forum.

An app would be good so that I and others could comment during the game. I certainly don't run to my computer while the game is on but I always have my phone handy.

Celtics blog had a life before joining sbnation.

You can still comment using a browser.  I bring my iPad with me to the TV room.

That said, I would hope an app could run faster.  CB has been really slow lately.
