    I think we do! I hate the site interface, but love the app and wish we had it on the Mac app store too! Is it possible?

    That's a good question, Moonlit...I use both the the app and also use the browser to get to the forum. It would be nice to have that option, though!

    Yes I would love that option also, but one would have to be created for it I guess

    I'm sure someone else posted on this once before too.

    The site interface is ok, but an app for Mac would be great! I do have some issues with the iPad app, however. The controls and interface (especially) are cumbersome and need work. I use the iPF iPad app only when I have to upload photos.

    I find the app very streamlined and easy to use.

    Actually, I disagree!
    One major flaw is that there isn't a way to like posts within the app...
    :thumbsdown:

    Not quite a deal breaker, as I only use the iPF app when I have to upload photos from my iPad...

    You don't find the site a cluttered mess? I do.

    I actually prefer the website to the app. I would describe the app as a "cluttered mess," and the website as the (almost) optimal experience.

    That's interesting as I see nothing streamlined about the site. Guess I prefer minimalism.

    I guess I just like the website's interface better.
