We used to have an app called Taptalk but that had to be removed earlier this year since there was a sort of chat room on there that couldn't be moderated by the staff on here which was abused, and other security problems if I remember correctly. There is the mobile view at the bottom left of the page if you find that easier than using the full website on your phone.

As Lost Horizon said, we had to remove the site from Tapatalk, which is a forum app, due to a number of security flaws. Unfortunately we do not have a private app, as it would be expensive to make and we would have to hire a good developer to make it. I've always preferred browsing the site using a mobile browser over Tapatalk anyway, but that's just me.

Apps are far more complicated than they may seem. I've been in other forums, and most all of them agree that a mobile version is far more economically and practically valuable than an app.

For VT to develop a private app, that would require a huge restructuring of the site and coding for the app. And while I'm sure the development team here is great, an app would almost certainly require hiring a professional. A mobile version is simply a reorganization of the existing site, which is far easier. The thing an app has over a mobile site is accessibility, which is rather minor honestly.

I second your opinion.

Before they make an app, they should probably fix the bug where boys are able to post in the girls forums and vice versa.

You can open VT on your phone though. I don't really see the use of an app for VT to be honest.

won't it be easier to make mobile version of the forum, not app? then it shouldn't be ported for different platforms...

We have one. In the drop down box at the bottom left, there is a mobile view.
