    I'd like to view forums (like this and a couple more) on my iPod but I need something easier than safari

    There are no "exclusively-mobile" options for this site, and from what I know, there won't be one anytime soon.

    bgizzle has stated that he will go out of his way to block applications that try to offer "mobile-forum" services for this site.

    This site looks fine in Safari, anyway.

    There is an app in the app store to make vBuletin forums viewable in a native iPod application. Link:

    No external application works with this site. I guarantee that.

    you dont need an app. this site is perfectly viewable with safari. add it to your home screen and it has all of the ease of access as an app.

    I have it on my home screen too. It works fine, and I can look at the forum anywhere with a quick tap.

    This probably isn't the place to ask, but why not? I understand if you don't want to make a mobile version, but why stop others? What am I missing?

    I assume one of the reasons is ad revenue, but you shouldn't expect an explanation...

    This site renders excellently on the iPhone. It loads fast even on EDGE.
