I use bitcointalk mostly on mobile and yet to find any problem, it's friendly as it gets.
It is not really mobile friendly. You have to zoom in and zoom out, slide your fingers up and down to read a long post or even change between horizontal and vertical positioning of the phone for better usability. If you are OK doing all that then that is fine.

I just realized, I do things you mentioned a lot, but never found it tedious, to be honest. May be I am just used to mobiles.

I am also mostly here on mobile and didn't even noticed I had to scroll that much till I read this. For me its just working fine but if there's an app, i would use it.

Reading the full fat version on mobile is tolerable, it's the writing, namely trimming to quote, that's agonising. You have to wait for the wee markers to show up holding your finger down, make sure you don't lose them or misplace them and more often than not they jump and you've deleted far too much. These days I try to wait until I'm near something with a mouse.

I don't know how or whether an app could address that. Dunno about iOS but there are a lot of things about Android that are still unwieldy enough to make my ovaries ache.

It's not really as much as a problem with needing an APP, it's just the mobile version (or any smaller version for that matter) hasn't been touched, so it just takes the regular site and shrinks it down.

Go on another popular web site, eg cointelegraph for an example. The entire UI is changed and it's formatted in a way that is comfortable. Bitcointalk isn't designed in this way.

A mobile app would be good though. The main issues are with the quote buttons being so hard to use, the overall UI and look of the site on mobile (zooming in and scrolling left and right to see posts is really annoying, personally). An app would be very hard to build to be honest though.

That's a static site. That's far less of a challenge to make it usable.

I dip into other forums on mobile and they're all different levels of painful to actually write on even when they're optimised. It's a medium that's never going to be a very comfortable fit on mobile if you want to do more than browse.

Can you link to some forums that you think do work on mobile?

I have some reasons that lead me to don't support an app for Bitcointalk.org.
  • Another type of phishing for the forum: we already have see so many phishing sites; and we do not need phishing apps
  • With app, more users will get their accounts hacked; then more burden of works on account recoveries for forum staffs and Cryptios.
  • Typing on mobile devices is always inconvenient: it is another minus point that we do not need an app
- If people don't seriously and carefully with their activities when using their bitcointalk accounts, don't remember the site's address; they will do not care to save official link of an app, then they will get hacked.
- If we do not feel comfortable when typing with mobile devices, an app won't solve this natural issues with mobile devices.

I am curious, and click on Vote button, with No option. Then, I saw results (with 35 votes in total):
- Yes: 10 (28.6%)
- No: 25 (71.4%).
The sample of vote is small, but it gives us the fact that people don't like the idea to build an app for forum.
Instead of building an app, having new forum software is better (Epochtalk).

It's not about typing, rather quoting, snipping and doing some advanced reply things are bit of pain.

By the way, I just registered on (https://www.cryptos-currencies.com/) which uses Epochtalk. It's little conveninient and eye pleasing but quoting and snipping problems remains the same.

I knew that forum, that use new forum softwares. It is basic, and unchangeable characteristic of mobile devices. Ebooks can not completely replaced paper books. Personally, I don't like that forum, because I felt familiar with classic forum (this one).
