Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Ugly.
Anyone know how to file a DMCA to get that out of Google Play?
The app doesn't work, you can download it but when you open it you just get an error message and it closes. The developer deleted his account. You can flag the app in the Google play store and request that google removes it

1. Well designed apps are expensive.
2. I don't have a good vision of what an app will accomplish that the browser or Tapatalk can't already do.

I assume searchguy was not familiar with tapatalk. I feel like there was a thread about a year ago about members chipping in a couple bucks to defray the cost of creating one

http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=11487.0
Was about trying to get 40 members to donate their Amex SBS credit to license a DDF branded tapatalk app that is free for all.
Maybe next time it can be done

I still think the app is worth it. The SD's app is great and I am sure the guys at Rustybrick could put something together. Cant Dan put Ad's on to Defray the cost?

Besides for killing the battery life, (the app has to constantly ping the server to refresh the ads), the CPM's(cost-per-thousand, not cost per mile :)) for in-app advertising are extremely low, plus Apple takes their 30% cut. Ads definitely wouldn't help much.
Why does DD need an app anyways?

If the app is closed it doesnt have to ping anything. And Dan can have the forums as well as the main site on the app. the main site ads will be there (nothing to do with apple) and  he can have sponsored posts in the forums as well. Honestly, when I am not at a computer, i check the forums much less. Its just not easy and I dont love TapaTalk. your also limiting yourself to people that dont want to pay (as cheap as the app is).
Of course, this is just my opinion.
