    Why? RD works perfectly on all devices.
  4. 1 - Because there are now so many sections in Racedepatment that it justifies an app;
    The news, the videos, the schedules, the mods, etc, etc and app is so much more efficient and responsive than a web page since some content (buttons, menus, some pics, etc, are stored locally).
    2 - for the same reason every news company with a webpage has decided to make an app.

    Yes, but it does cost quite an amount of money/time to create something like that. Otherwise you end up with a "shitty" app.

    By the way as a premium member the site should be more responsive as well. As you have no adds. It is so quick that I would never install an app for it. If it should be fully featured you basically have to write a complete Xenforo app (forum software) thats a job for professional app developers. So far nobody has developed an app for Xenforo. The only thing available is tapatalk and that is pretty bad.

    I own a Xenforo license myself and writing a native app for that would be a full time job.
