Has Anyone Used ForumRunner Yet?

What is your opinion of this software?

What Is It?

Forum Runner is a vBulletin and phpBB forum add-on that allows your users to access your forum at blazing fast speeds by using a native application installed on their mobile phone or iPad device.
Does anyone have experience with this?

What are the pros and cons?

Is it stable on high traffic big boards?

Thanks for your valuable time, energy and support!

Looks pretty good for forum owners who might have iPod/iPhone users, will give it a try and get back to you

Edit: Check out the free version, and browse to EzIRC's website. Parses and runs perfectly, it supports adding attachments in new replies and new threads (but not in editing posts )
It has pretty much everything I could ask for, as far as a simple browsing app goes. Well done, ForumRunner.
I am dropping support for vBulletin.

I use tapatalk ( does the same thing, has been around longer, and works on more devices including androids and black berries (and of course apple stuff too.)

There's no server load issues with Tapatalk. All pros, no real cons except occasionally having to keep the files up to date.

I suppose it is also a pro for file updating as it shows we keep bug fixing and adding features right?

I have Forumrunner installed, and it seems to work quite well so far.

Glad you guys have it installed and running fine!

Competition is always a good thing (drives innovation!).

Forum Runner runs on one of the largest vBulletin sites in the world ( - in fact, they chose to brand with us (they have their own app in the store). So it works well with large forums.

I'm a little late to this thread, but I want to chime in and say just how useful Forum Runner is. I use it all the time when I'm on the go, and find the moderation functions to be very helpful. My users really appreciate it as well. I highly recommend giving it a try, if you haven't already.
