You what could be amazing? Checking My Scirra Account & messages on a mobile app made by Scirra. :)
That way I Can check it on my tablet/phone when I need too or far from my PC/Laptop.
@Ashley & @Tom please make this app, it would be totally awesome.
Constructors what do you think about it?

I disagree entirely. Ashley is the only developer and as such, I think his time would be more beneficially utilised in developing and enhancing the core C2 program.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I'll admit these forums are terribly mobile-unfriendly, but I get by well enough as it is. Definitely wouldn't want development time on Construct to be sacrificed for this sake.

Well wouldn't a mobile-optimised forum layout make more sense than writing a whole app? Then you can just check it in the browser.

It would be somewhat ironic if the future of gaming is html5 but the future of forums requires an app... ;) A mobile optimised forum would get my vote!

Oh god I hate "mobile-optimized" anything. One of two things inevitably ends happening:
Either the "mobile version" is crippled and we don't have access to all the features from the desktop version

or this:

What's wrong with zooming and reading in landscape mode?

@Fimbul I've had very good experiences with mobile versions of websites and forums. I don't see why this would be a bad thing for Scirra. However, do we really need this, now? I don't think so... the developer's time could be spent in more important things.

phpBB has some great responsive themes, but the only mobile device I use to browse the forums is an iPad and it already works great on that anyway.
