I just bought it earlier this week. Viewing the forum on your phone is easier for sure. It has the feel you would expect from an app and doesn't require the zooming and moving around required in the web browser on your phone. My only complaint so far, and it's a big one, is that there isn't (at least I haven't found it) an option to view recently updated posts and threads. When I get on the forum, that's all I really care to see. I like to see the active conversations and topics. From my experience so far, which is less than a week, the app is better suited for the guy who comes to the forum to look up a particular topic, not to the guy who periodically checks in to see what is going on. I have the Android version BTW.
