    Mu-43.com now supports Android and the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad natively with Mu-43 App!

    What is Mu-43 App?

    Mu-43 App is a free app for Android/iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad that allows you to browse and post to the Mu-43.com forum using a native client. In many cases, it provides faster access since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection and increase mobile data usage.

    Mu-43 App Feature List

    • Browse your favorite Mu-43.com forums in an easy-to-use-interface with multiple notification types (private message, subscription, etc)
    • Push notification support: Get private message and subscribed thread updates from your favorite forums in the background!
    • Get an overview of updates (private messages/subscriptions) on home screen
    • Image attachment thumbnail and full size viewing from threads
    • View a thread's image attachments in one convenient screen (much like the native iPhone "Photo" app)
    • Save thread images to your iPhone/iPod touch library
    • Fully searchable forums!
    • View embedded links without leaving the app
    • Supports portrait AND landscape mode
    • Full posting options (quote posts, start new thread, etc)
    • Attach photos from your library (or take a photo from the camera and attach it)
    • Full support for private messages and private message folders
    • Full support for thread subscriptions - track your favorite threads and be updated via push when they have new posts!

    Thank you Amin

    Thanks for the Mu-43 iPad application.

    I can now easily post to this forum and include any image I have in my iPad Photos. I previously had to walk all the way to my office to use my desktop computer instead of sending images from my easy chair in my living room. This made me so happy I grabbed my G2 and took a self portrait to show how happy I am.

    On second thought, what happens when you tap on the posts that have HTML code? Does that show the image? It's supposed to work in the iOS version but doesn't show on my Android devices.

    It works well, but I still prefer to sure on the ipad with safari. I prefer the pay layout vs the app.

    Tapping on posts with HTML code displays the little emoticons well but not so in the listing of all messages.

    Should not there be a display of the possible emoticons in the new reply area so that we do not have to memorize the codes to be typed between colons?
