Online Book Club 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.

I know how hard is to create a good app, but I believe it would be much easier (for me at least) to use it then the website version. So I just wanted to know if there are any plans on releasing an app.

I think that would be quite popular with many current users of the forum! 8)

Me too! I would definitely use it more since it would phone friendly, and that's what I have with me most times :)

I'd have to agree. If there was an app for the site, I'd be on a lot more than I am now.

I think the app would be a great asset to the younger reviewers, considering we spend a lot of time on phones and tablets. It would make it easier to update a current read on the bus with an app instead of taking out a laptop or waiting till you get home.

Okay, we've been talking a lot about goals/resolutions for 2016. Let my goal be to make this app thing happen in 2016. :)
