    Default RailroadForums.com? There's an app for that!

    That's right, you can now browse RailroadForums.com and ModelRailroadForums.com using a dedicated forum app. This app has some features that you won't find on your mobile browser, including the ability to easily upload photos.

    Here's some more info:

    But @ $2.99 for the iPhone is it worth that vs just visiting through the browser? I tend to hit RRF on my computer and when I'm away for a while I use the website through Safari.

    It's the same things your whole life. "Clean up your room!", "Stand up straight!", "Pick up your feet!", "Take it like a man!", "Be nice to your sister!", "Don't mix beer and wine, EVER!" Oh yeah, "Don't drive on the railroad tracks!"

    $2.99 is chicken feed.

    I already use tapatalk for another railroad themed forum and the interface is so much better for mobile devices than viewing the same forum through Safari. Thanks for setting this up Bob!

    It's worth it, otherwise I wouldn't have installed it! I don't get any of the money from that, it all goes to the developer. However, after trying the app on my photography forum for a couple months, I determined it was stable and works well.

    By the way, this APP will work with more than just railroadforums. For starters, it works with modelrailroadforums. It also works with PNWphotos.com and lots of other forums as well. You only pay once, there is no fee for using it on another forum.

    Thanks for doing this Ron.

    There's 1000's of web forums using Tapatalk, not just RR-related ones.

    Another similar app is called ForumRunner, also on the iPhone and maybe Android ?
