Why can't you just save a bookmark into your phone's web browser?  I check in on the fog when I'm on a jobsite, post comments, and even upload pictures of current installs as well.  As a matter of fact, I rarely am on the fog from home.  Not sure why an app is needed.

I do use Tapatalk...there's quite a few forums that I've discovered over the course of owning the app. It's kind of strange but I've grown very accustomed to using Tapatalk and feel out of sorts when I go on FOG on my computer. It would be cool if there was maybe a mobile friendly version of the FOG but an actual app wouldn't be particularly necessary.

But a dedicated app would be cool  [2cents]

So you guys are saying you can't just use your phone browser and do the full PC experience?   [eek]

Hmmmmm

Cheers,

Being capable of, and having the desire to do so are two completely different things
