Where do you see this on their site? phpBB.com has no relation with Tapatalk, nor we didn't made it.

No, phpBB.com has tapatalk not (nor any other MOD) installed, and we dont have plans to install it, or create a app like xda developers.

phpBB is behind on many fields when we compare it with other open source apps. However, feel free to contribute to phpBB, join the developers team, persuade most of them that mobile app is important (i am sure they know it but there are more important things to do) and start working on it :) This is how open source is developed.

Most importantly because we create forum software and not Android software, also our developers already have limited time to work on phpBB. If they would work on Andoroid/iOS apps then that would take away time from phpBB development and slow that down even further and I for one (and presumingly most phpBB users) think that the devs can spend their time better on building the best forum software rather then something else.

Keep in mind that mobile application != mobile style. A mobile style would make browsing phpBB-based boards a little easier. There is a MOD in Development that adds this functionality, but I'm unsure if it will ever be included in the core.

Official mobile style would be really a good step forward

There is already a mobile style http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style ... er_mobile/ You do not rule out its inclusion in a future in the original package.

I do not see the complication in install and easy to navigate from your mobile

Similarly vBulletin create forum software, Wordpress create CMS software, etc etc...

I'm not sure the phpBB project can keep getting away with that old chesnut of only being a bulletin board system developer.

Sure. Won't dispute that.

Wordpress on the other hand?

Not a forum based software solution, ergo, immaterial. ;)
