    Evan,

    Wow, it means the world to us that a member of our community would put so much time, effort, and passion into building something like this.

    Feels a bit like those community-driven Facebook for iPad apps, and that's a huge compliment for us.

    Putting yourself and your app out there is also a tremendous act of courage. Feedback can be brutal but brutal feedback is the best way to learn, grow, and improve. Hopefully the community embraces your work and gives you productive input on what they love and what they think would help the app going forward.

    ("Unofficial TiPb app" would be hugely appreciated change as well, so I don't get your support emails and you don't get our hate mail )

    Again, thanks. Awesome.

    No clue, I'm going to say this and I'm not being snide or rude, just a tid bit of advise, you might want to cover all your bases next time before doing something like this... Contact Apple and see if they can help you out or post over in the iOS developer forum.

    Downloading now. Not bad looking although the ALL CAPS on the More page does not look good. Same thing with the text below the icons. It's a good start though.

    Agreed. Always best to double check your work before you hit the submit button.

    Use Tapatalk as a benchmark. Look at the exact functionality they offer and try to offer MORE. Shoot for the stars and you will reach the clouds. If you accept defeat and think you can't do something like Tapatalk before you even try, you will end up with a crappy app.

    Also please don't ALL CAPS everything... You may think it looks cool but everyone else finds it annoying.

    Reviewing your own app is not something you should be doing.

    I have my reservations. I would like an official app. Albeit, it seems using the web\safari is the best way to go at present.

    Nonetheless, at least he tried; some of the rest of us don't even do that...

    Bad app is bad - Sure, you can read the forums. But what good are forums if you can't interact with them? Instead it just opens in it your browser, and the site already has a great mobile theme which works great on the iPhone.. There's no need for this app. It's just bad.

    You can't reply to a post from within the app. That's really the only thing I see wrong with the app other than that, it's about time

    Hahah, love this app. Well done

    yeah tottaly.

    it is free and ad -free
    you can check it out on Tipb Forums for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store
    i didn't make this app to earn any revenue.(infact i dont make any of my apps to earn a a revenue. my dad gives me enough cash)

    i just made it as a way to thanking tipb for keeping me updated on the latest apple gossip ..i thought thier was an app for all websites like TUAW and Mahable and made one for tipb. Even though this is not as good as thier apps.
    i have put the source code under GPL , if any one wants to pick up on improving the app.
    they can contact me on evan.luthra@gmail.com

    and i know taptalk is way bettter . but it is also offering its services for a fee.
    this app currently serves as a forum reader. enabling to reply to posts would require a lot of backend .
    you can download this app and taptalk.

    Its bad enough hes out there reviewing his own apps, making people think its a really good one. There has got to be something ion the developer handbook that talks about not reviewing your own apps.
