    Having used another auto forum with a companion iOS app and push notifications, I'm curious if there are plans for native mobile apps for this site/forum.

    I personally hope not. I find it annoying when I open a site and want to use the desktop version and it pops up 'suggestions' to go to either the mobile version or an app to download.

    Do you mind sharing what forum? I'd love to check it out. I wonder if it was a fully native app or a hybrid.

    It was on http://www.mercedescla.org/. I used the app all the time when I first bought my CLA. I just looked it up on my phone and it was developed by Forum Foundry (though it looks like it is no longer being maintained).

    The "suggestions" feature is a developer's choice and it's possible to have best of both worlds :)

    I went to check it out, but it's unfortunately not compatible with iOS 11.

    I do like the idea of an app, though I have found this site plays very nice on mobile as well.

    Think there might be some XenForo 3rd party apps that provide what you are looking for.

    I think this forum is build oppon it. Something like Forum Talker on Android for example. I'm not aware of IOS apps as I'm too lazy to charge my Ipad :)

    I will give the site a spin on mobile and see how it works.

    BTW, a google search for XenForo on iOS came up with this: https://forumapps.net/.

    I use this forum on my android phone's chrome browser pretty often and it actually works pretty well. Would love to have a native app since that that usually works better if done right, but I can definitely understand why you wouldn't want to develop one.

    I'm the founder of ForumApps, the app mentioned above. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.
