What a great idea @Mary Lisboa!

That would make posting on the forum so much easier :)

I am in agreement that an app would be most excellent. I sometimes forget to log in here with my full days and since I have my phone with me all the time and gets alerts of posts, etc, there for other apps, I would definitely be on here more (which could cause a big problem anyway :D)

I have created a Kickstarter campaign to make an mobile app.

You will not be charged unless we reach our goal.

The great thing about Kickstarter is it costs you absolutely nothing to pledge. The project only gets funded if it reaches its goal. So enough other people also have to think the project is a good idea for your pledge to come into play. This protects you from donating to a failing cause.

So please go to the Kickstarter and pledge now.

Thank you!
