    Yes, that's right, we're now in the Play Store!

    Always wanted to get the MSC on your mobile, but didn't want to have to shell out for a copy of Tapatalk or Forum Runner? Well your wait is over!

    With the help of Tapatalk, we've created our own branded app, which is fully functional, and best of all, FREE!

    And for you paid club members, as we love you so much, there's no ads :)

    So what are you waiting for?! .....

    Sorry to hear that! iPhone support is something I'm considering, but the financial outlay is much greater than developing for Android (including the fact that development for iPhone apps MUST be done on a Mac :confused:)

    Mmm, I realise that, we do iOS apps at work, mind you, we don't do android apps and I've heard they're twice as difficult but I guess people are just more willing to develop an app that's far less likely to get knocked back by the store that provides it to the customers.

    Android is surprisingly easy to develop for I've found. So long as you're relatively au fait with programming it's not that steep a learning curve.

    This app is actually a rebranded version of Tapatalk I must admit (although we're releasing it for free compared to however much Tapatalk costs), but I've done a few of my own Android apps previously too!

    Oh go on then, see the attached file :)

    I *think* it should integrate with the Play Store once it's live, but if not, please uninstall this version and install it from the Play Store so you can get future updates :)

    James.

    Edit: File removed, it's now live on the Play Store!

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me? Would it be worth me uninstalling and then reinstalling the app? :oops:

    It's ok, It's a known issue that's being worked on and should be addressed in the next update :)

    Awesome!

    I've been using Forum Runner for the past 6 or so months but has many flaws.

    Amazon restricted the Fire from Googles' Play Store iirc

    You can get around it quite easily.
