Far as I know there is no app. If I remember right they said they'd spent so much time and effort to get the mobile version of the website to run so smooth that you don't need an app. I tend to agree.

there is no app and ive never seen a drop down offering it. it could be your phone offering to add it as an "app" icon on the home screen.

Yeah. That is on the pull out menu. Guess we did not remove that option years ago.

No app will be developed as we spent considerable resources to make sure the format is extremely phone friendly on every widely used browser.

I just looked on mine and I'll be damned, it is there...

Lol, never knew that. It adds a browser shortcut to your home screen. Works too.

Maybe added in a forum software update at some time...

There you go. HF app granted.

I never knew it was there either.... It's actually pretty handy. It seems to have it's own browser tho cause it's not opening up in Chrome or the stock android browser. Not a problem and it does make it more like a standalone app.

Plus I don't have to worry about being embarrassed tapping on Chrome and people seeing it's still on my hot midget porn site from earlier. Boy if I had a nickel.....

IF i understand right it still is chrome its just a dedicated full screen style interface.
